I opened my Daz 3D program today to find out that all my figures were somehow morphed and disfigured. I looked on many forums and kept getting the same answers. They told me to go to the figure and fix all the parameters that were not set to zero. Well, as you can guess, that would have taken FOREVER! So I played around and found an easier fix. By following these steps, you will make changes to the base figure, and all other characters should now work because your base models are no longer messed up.
Step 1: Go to your Content Library tab and locate the base figure. For instance, you can see in the below picture that I have moused over “People>Genesis 3 Female” (What you should NOT do is go to the characters folder. That does not contain the base figure)
Step 2: Load the figure into the scene
Step 3: We need to Zero the figure shape. To do this, go to “Edit>Figure>Zero>Zero Figure Shape.” I wish I could tell you that the job is finished, but not quite.
Step 4: Next you need to set all default parameters to Zero. This is the part that takes the longest. To do this, go to your Parameters tab.
Step 5: Click on the figure (In my case it’s “Genesis 3 Female” (See picture in step 6 to see what I mean. Look at the yellow selection on the right)
Step 6: Scroll through the parameters and look for the bolded numbers that say “0.0%”
Step 7: Press the gear icon on the top right of the setting and Select “Parameter Settings”
Step 8: Change the default settings to ZERO.
Step 9: Click Apply (or press Enter)
Step 10: Do this for ALL the bold 0.0% numbers that you find in the parameters list. (When you change the default, they will not be bold anymore, which means you’re doing it right)
Step 11: I like to scroll through the list one more time to make sure I didn’t miss any bolded percent signs
Step 12: Go to “File>Save As>Support Asset>Save Modified Assets”
Step 13: Push Accept (A list of all your changes will be in the box for you to see)
Step 14: Just to make sure I have a clean figure, I like to add a couple more steps by repeating steps 1, 2, and 3. If I don’t see any changes in the figure, then I know I’m good.
I hope this helps!
If you have other advice, please comment. As I said, I looked on many forums and couldn’t find an answer that worked with more than one figure until I tried this out.
