Creating Characters and Morphs for Daz 3D Figures: Saving your Morph(s)

March 29, 2017 Leave a comment

This is Part 5 of my Learning Paths:
Creating Characters and Morphs for Daz 3D Figures Using ZBrush & GoZ
and
Creating Characters and Morphs for Daz 3D Figures (Software Independent).

Now that you have your morph all set up in Daz Studio, you need to save it if you want it to be there next time you fire up Daz Studio.

  1. Make sure the morph is at 0
  2. This will ensure that it won’t be dialed in every time you load in Genesis 3.

  3. Save the Morph Asset
  4. Go to File > Save As > Support Asset > Morph Asset(s).

  5. Select the Morph(s) to be Saved
  6. Daz Studio Morph Asset Save Options

    Following the same hierarchy you set in the previous steps select the morph(s) you created and want to save. It is VERY important you select your morph(s) and only your morph(s). Or, you may accidently overwrite some other morphs and have to re-install a bunch of products to fix the damage (it has happened to a lot of people, including Daz PAs).

  7. Set the Asset Directory
  8. I like to save all my creations in a separate Daz Studio Library than the one I install all my content into using DIM (if you haven’t already, you may have to add the Library using the Content Directory Manager within Daz Studio’s preferences). I feel it’s a little bit safer and helpful with content creation.

  9. Vendor Name & Product Name
  10. These two fields will determine the folder structure that Daz Studio will use when saving your morph. The folder hierarchy will end up like this when saving a G3F morph:

    Your Selected Daz Studio Library\data\DAZ 3D\Genesis 3\Female\Morphs\Vendor Name\Product Name\Name of the Morph.dsf

  11. Click Accept, once you have everything configured the way you want.
  12. Congratulations! You have now officially created your own custom morhp(s) that will still be there next time you open Daz Studio!

    Using the steps outlined in this Learning Path, you can create morphs for clothing, hair and props too!
