Awesome guide. But there a slight difference in the provided pose, the legs doesn't match the G8 body exactly. To fix this set Pose Controls>Legs Spread to 3.5% for the G8 character.
Edited from "I appreciate the effort but it shows error for me, When I tried loading morph it says the geometry didn't match, I tried with multiple carecters but same error."

Actually I had to delete eyelash from gen 8. And everything worked after that.
Just tried this; took it really slow as I'm new to DAZ, made a couple of mistakes, but then it worked great :D
Great job with the guide +1
Great Guide! Is there a similar tutorial for converting G8 textures to G2?
This is awesome, however I am having a small issue when initially exporting the OBJ, as even with the recommended settings my file is still larger than 4 Mb, anything else I can try? Thank you

It seems you have some other items in addition to the model itself. Reminder: the model must be completely naked, without eyebrows, hair, or anything not directly related to the model.
Geometry did not match, failed to create morph.
Do you know what it could be? I did everything it asks there and I got stuck in that part when the error.
5!!!!!
An excellent guide and easy to follow
I use this now to add in custom morph's and figures from G3 and up. Love it and find it absolutely necessary to be able to do so.
I done exactly as shown but I also can't find the morph ingame.
I did make sure that .vmi and .vmb got created but I still don't see the morph...
