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...
Not working for me. When i run fit to genesis 8. The result is always a destroyed face.
great tut! Any tips on fixing the eyes? When I fit my gen 8 to gen 2, the eyes get distorted in DAZ...once I import to VAM they are distorted and bug out when looking down. I followed the steps exactly multiple times over....any ideas?
greate tutorials! but when i tried to use the morph that i converted in VAM, the finger tip deforms and looks weird . is there a way i can fix that?

Look at point 19. If it doesn't help, I've unfortunately run into this problem myself, but it most often occurs when the body is too deformed or too short. Probably an error somewhere on the daz side of the rigging adjustment.
I do not understand it, I did it as shown in the pictures and inserted it in vam, only it shows me in the tab Female Morph nothing why 😏

Make sure that the directory where you are copying is really the one specified in step 23. Also make sure that 2 new .vmi, .vmb files appear in the directory where you copied it (VAM)
Great work, thanks so much!

Time to save others from the frustration I felt. if you make a "Gen 8 Remover" morph as suggested in the other review, it does work great for partials. However, SKIP STEPS 19-21 (Rigging and ERC freeze) when making that remover morph or you'll get deformations and animation issues.
Thank you so much for this! It is working great!

I found out this handy tip:-
First create a morph with your procedure using only the g8f figure itself with no morphs dialled in. Name it g8f_base or whatever.

Then add the following optional extra step to your guide when doing further morphs:-
Before the step of exporting the .obj file, dial the above g8f_base morph into g2f at minus -100% before proceeding as normal.

This will then transfer only the morph itself and not the whole g8f figure shape. Handy for the smaller partial morphs!

Thanks again!
