How to transfer Genesis 3 morphs to a Genesis 1 figure in DAZ Studio

Why go backward?

You might be asking, "Wait shouldn't this be the other way around? Shouldn't you make outdated morphs compatible with a newer base figure?"

Well, yes but let me assure you that there is a method to my madness.

The issue

In my case, I already have a large library of 3d content (clothing, props, and poses) that are compatible with Genesis 1. That legacy 3d content is not compatible with the newer Genesis figures (G2 & G3 male/female), so it doesn't make sense to upgrade and then lose the investment I made in my 3d content library.

The solution

Luckily there is a way around this using the Generation X2 plug-in for DAZ Studio.

Generation X2 allows you to transfer morphs between different versions of Genesis. That means if I see a Genesis 2 or 3 character that I like, I can make those morphs work with Genesis 1 and still be able to use all the content in my 3d library. This video walks you through the methodology and process for doing this.
