Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Meet Mr. Right - Michael 4! Download Michael 4 Male 3D Model today and learn what a truly cutting-edge 3D male figure can be. This is the most versatile, realistic, and anatomically accurate male human figure ever made available for public use. The figure is derived from real body scans and high-resolution photography of real human men. Michael 4 is also built to use the same add-on technology as in Victoria 4, which allows additional characters of different proportions and shapes to be loaded and mixed.

“Michael 4 is the most advanced stock male [figure] yet.” -Mat Broomfield, 3D World Magazine

“It's easy to make him look different - nice base eye shape and great set of head morphs in the Morphs++ package give me a very versatile model for my head and shoulder portraits.” -AprilYSH

“I think it was worth the wait, Michael 4 is the most developed male figure to date.” -Jepe

Additional Details

Resolved Issues

  • 2008-10-31 - 1.1 - The Michael 4 Base and Michael 4 Morphs + + products have been updated to correct an issue with how eye blinks are working. There was as discrepancy found in how they operated compared to how they are setup in Victoria 4, and we want to preserve compatibility as much as possible between these two figures. Add-on products that contain expressions that utilized certain eye morphs will also need to be updated. This is an update that everyone needs to install to ensure that all add-on products containing expressions will work as intended by the creators.

Known Issues

  • The installer requires that a file named 'Poser.exe' is located in the directory where the product is installed. For this reason, installation for PoserPro fails. (name of executable is PoserPro.exe; a separate content directory may be used.) Add a file named 'Poser.exe' (a simple textfile, renamed, will do) to fool the installer and instal. After installation remove the fake 'poser.exe' to avoid any future complications.
  • Same method can be used for anyone keeping dedicated Runtimes for figures.
  • Remember that the Library\!DAZ directory with the morph data needs to be in the core Runtime for proper performance, so copy M4's into the core Runtime to get the installation complete.
