Additional Details

The following information is copied from the origial ReadMe for Victoria 4.2 and may be depreciated.

Victoria 4 and her clothing

  • Briefly outlined below are the steps for creating a scene comprised of multiple Victoria 4 figures, her associated deformers, and any clothing that shares their influence.
    • Load Victoria 4 into the scene.
    • With the intended target Victoria 4 figure selected*, load an item of conforming clothing, and conform/fit it*.
      • Note: If you are using Poser, be sure that the correct Victoria 4 figure is selected in the scene before loading the clothing item for that figure, to ensure proper “cross-talking”
        • “Cross-talking” means the settings for all of the morphs, that both the clothing item and figure have in common, will be copied from the figure to the clothing item. Only the settings in the morphs that are common will be applied to the clothing item - it does not gain morphs from the base figure.)
      • Note: If you are using Poser and plan to utilize the scaling Morphforms in Victoria 4 together with a conforming clothing item that has been built to support this feature, you will need follow a different workflow than when you use the other Morphforms (in Poser). First parent the BODY of the clothing item to the BODY of the intended target figure, and then copy the pose from the figure to the clothing item. If you are applying a pose to the clothing item that contains any information for the BODY actor, then you will need to Restore (Ctrl+E) the BODY of the conformed clothing item after applying said pose.
    • Apply the appropriate* “Magnetize to V4” pose, found in the “DAZ's Victoria 4\Magnetize Clothing” pose folder, to the newly conformed/fitted clothing item.
      • Note: In Poser, the appropriate “Magnetize to V4” pose is the one with the same number suffix as that of the Victoria 4 figure to which the clothing is conformed. For example, if the clothing is conformed to a Victoria 4 figure that Poser has labeled “Victoria4 2”, then the “Magnetize to V4 2” pose should be used.
        • If you are utilizing a scene/figures saved in Poser, in DAZ Studio, the information provided above still applies.
        • If you are working in DAZ Studio, by default clothing will automatically be magnetized to the selected figure when loaded.
          • This option is controlled from the Preferences Scene tab.
        • If you are working in DAZ Studio exclusively, the appropriate “Magnetize to V4” pose is the one labeled “!Magnetize to V4”, regardless of number suffix.
    • Repeat steps 1 thru 3 as needed.

Can I save poses that utilize Victoria 4's Full Body Morphs (FBM), in Poser?

  • Historically, the answer to that question would be… no. While a future version of the application may change this, limitations within Poser do not allow saving poses that utilize FBMs, natively*. In Victoria 4 we did something a little different. By creatively re-purposing existing technology, you can now save poses that utilize Victoria 4's FBMs, directly within Poser.
    • Note: DAZ Studio users do not have this limitation. Using the Custom option in the Save Pose Preset dialog, users can selectively record any parameters of their choosing to a Pose Preset.

What are Morphforms?

  • The term “Morphforms” comes from joining the two existing terms that define it, Morphs and Transforms. Generally speaking, Morphs modify the shape of a figure's geometry, whereas Transforms allow you to manipulate that geometry by rotating, translating and/or scaling it. Morphforms are a combination of the two, in that they are Morph dials that drive multiple Transforms at a time, for the benefit and/or convenience of the user. Since the application recognizes these dials as morphs, any Poses which use Morphforms need to be saved with the “include morphs” option selected in order for the values to be recorded as part of the pose*.
    • Note: DAZ Studio users do not have this limitation. Using the Custom option in the Save Pose Preset dialog, users can selectively record any parameters of their choosing to a Pose Preset.
    • DAZ Studio users also have the added benefit of the “Morphforms to Transforms” script available on the DAZ website, which will “bake” the Morphform values down to the actual Transforms which comprise it. This script, when used in conjunction with the “Poser Format Exporter” script, also available on the DAZ website, enables DAZ Studio users to generate Poser format poses that can be utilized by all users of Victoria 4.

Why is it taking so long to load V4 in Poser?

  • Due to the way Poser reads the ExP files, it is strongly recommended that Victoria 4.2 be kept in the default Poser Runtime. DAZ Studio users can place Victoria 4.2 in an external folder if desired.
  • The .cr2 file can be moved to an external Runtime, but the files in the Libraries:!DAZ folder should be kept in the default Poser Runtime. If the !DAZ folder is moved to an external Runtime, Poser first looks in the default Runtime, then starts looking through all files on all hard drives for the files. This can take a very long time to complete, as much as 15-20 minutes.
