[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1G2G3G8
The first version of this workflow came from Kattey on the DAZ forum, for which I acknowledge credit. 
Here is that (lengthy) thread:
Here's another thread with a method that might be better on eye distortion, I haven't tried yet:
Here's what I've been doing myself. 
First of all, however: there are two ways to recreate a character.  There is the easy way, which is not redistributable, and the hard way, which is.  We'll discuss the easy way first.  I'm sorry, but I can't do anything for those of you who absolutely can't learn from text.  This is what I have time for right now.
Load Genesis 1.  Dial in your character morph.  There cannot be anything in the scene except the single figure while we do this.  No hair, no clothes, no props.  Or if they are there, you must hide them by c

[Tutorial] Convert Clothing G3 to G8, G8 to G3
This will only work between these two figures or between their male counterparts.  It will not work between any previous figures, or between these and previous figures.

Here's the YouTube video.
For this tutorial you need:

Genesis 3 Female from
Genesis 8 Female from
An item of clothing for one of them that you want to convert to the other one.
Here's a Genesis 3 Pose for Genesis 8, to save time. You can also make your own.
Scene Tab and Parameters Tab in Daz Studio 4.9+.  If you lack a tab, you can add it using Window--Panes (Tabs) and clicking the one that you need.

[Tutorial] Indenting Skin Where It Touches Objects
(I will link a YouTube version when I have one.  Hopefully I can fix my mic's current issues soon.)
Today I'm going to show you how to force a figure in Daz Studio to indent when in contact with clothes, ropes, or other objects.  This is not a feature of the program at the moment (figures having physics is still a long way out, I suspect).  We can use a kludge to make it happen.
I was asked about this via PM, and I realized I hadn't actually tried it on the assumption that it would not work.  When I did try it, it actually DID work.  It's very unstable and somewhat crash-prone in my testing, and the higher poly the colliding object is the more unstable it is, but it works.
Here is the workflow I used.
1.  Load a figure into the scene.  I don't know if the geometry of Generation 4 is too different or not, but it might still work.  Definitely any Genesis figure will.
2.  Set up everything else in your scene: the clothes, the props, the lightin

Quick 'n easy Iray wet skin tutorial
I looked for tutorials on how to make sweaty/wet skin in Iray renders, and I ended up using an easy fix of my own. The problem is, with default values it's impossible to make skin look wet. Here's a typical setup, with an Uber shader, glossy layered weight set to 1, glossy reflectivity 1 and glossy roughness 0.1:

The glossy highlights are barely visible, mostly because the glossy color textures are really dark. Tutorials either involve removing them, which gives a plastic wrap effect, or tweaking the top coat setting with custom textures. The solution I found just involves slightly messing up the default values. Just select the character's skin, edit the glossy layered weight parameters and remove the limits:

Then you can boost the glossy effect to your heart's content. Here's the result when set to 10:

The highlights are much larger, and the whole skin

KC Riley-Gyer
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
I'm a writer, author, 3d artist by way of Daz Studio. I love reading and watching movies and tv, archery and shooting and enjoy watching motorbike racing. Each of these have been an inspiration towards my writing, which in turn inspires my attempts at art.

Genesis 3 but am not stating whether male or female as the secret of their true gender is part of their story.

Leap of Faith

Rolling away from him as quickly as I could, I crouched on the ground and noted I was weapon-less and dressed only in my panties and bra. I couldn’t school my expression in time as my eyes widened a fraction with true fear.

“Do not worry, other than disarming and disrobing you, you have not been touched in any way. Had to make sure you weren’t injured anywhere else, after all. In no way do I want you as one of my wolves.” He smiled gently.

With my heart pounding, I didn’t respond. Instead, I bolted toward the tent entrance and burst out into the sunlight. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed him so close to me, reaching for me. Only for him to recoil from the sudden light with a hiss of pain, followed by a growl of frustration.


Great! That was perfect in fact as it left me with more leeway than they had. Looking around me as quickly as I could, I saw only one easily accessible escape route directly in front of me. Taking a deep breath, I took that option without hesitation.

I ran as hard and fast as I could – ignoring the objections from my bare feet – to the cliff edge and leapt off for a thirty-two-metre fall.

“NOOOO! GRAB HER!” Someone screamed.

I think this was the last I'd managed to do for that black and white render challenge last year.
