I am currently busy working with Genesis 2 Male in Daz3D and want to save a few head and face presets for a new product. I do not want to save them as new characters because it is only the head and face that will be affected. So, how to do that?
Selecting the components to save.
It is in fact very easy to do providing that your character has been morphed inside Daz3D.
If your character was morphed outside of Daz3D for example Hexagon, then you need to add a couple of steps. I am not going o discuss the steps in this blog.
Load your Genesis character and apply the changes that you want to make. Remember we only want to save a preset for the Genesis original character without changing anything to the mesh. Select your character and go to:
Select the folder where you want to save the preset and give it a name. Now for the most important part. Select only the items that are applicable to the head and face or whatever you have changed. In my case it was only the head and face and I did not make any changes to the body.
The new preset will appear here after you have saved it.
Once it is saved it will appear in the folder that you have selected and it will indicate that this is a preset. To test it load your base model, select it and apply the preset. If it is working then you have just managed to save your first preset. If not, then you need to retrace your steps and see if you have selected or not selected a component.
