Softwares: DAZ Studio 4.9.4 (Needed for G8F/M)
Base Figures: Genesis, Genesis 8 Female

I was asked by Holger Hartmann, rather longer ago than I dare admit, to write a G8F->G1 pose transfer script. I have finally done it. Sorry it took so long!
This script assumes you have applied a G8F pose to G8F (or G8M, for that matter), and have a G1 figure you wish to transfer it to. This makes a reasonable job of the transfer and comes quite close to getting the correct conversion. Due to different bone geometry, the conversion is not absolutely perfect and you will need some manual tweaking - but not much different from what you'd need applying a base G8F pose to a G8F character.
To operate, start the script, select the G1 figure hip using the 'Node Selector Combo Box', then, using the G8F 'Node Selector Combo Box', select G8F's hip.
The script makes a guess trying to get the right figure, but doesn't always get it right - which is why there is a confirmation Stage. After that, press the 'Accept' button.
Hope it's useful

Many thanks. I am honored. When I started Daz3d in 2010, G1/V5 was just coming out and was celebrated for its diversity. Today V9 is praised for the same ability. But in the end, it's all about selling the same content over and over again. As an aside, G1 renders much faster, so doesn't always need better hardware like the newer charakters seem to intend. I notice this every time I use a new one.

Must admit I have never used G1 for a render other than one for a script promo image. I played with Poser and DAZ Studio in 2005/6 with V3 and V4, but stopped because V4 was too much for my PC at the time. My new PC can cope, I'm pleased to say.

I'm not sure I have to use this script because I haven't used G1 for a long time. Thank you that one day "it can be useful"!

Poses I can do, but characters are beyond me. I have bought the GenX Transfer script, but it didn't do quite the job I wanted. Don't know of anything else that tries to do the same job, sorry.

Totally AWESOME! I hope some day someone as talented and generous as you would make a script to transfer Victoria 4 (legacy?) characters to genesis 8 or even genesis 9 folk. I love those oldies but goodies. Thank you!

Pose: BBarbs Just Elegant 7. G8F Character is CHB Milan, and I think the G1 character is Victoria 5, but I may be wrong there. The background is Namtaar3D's wonderful underwater HDRI.

Please note that due to the differences in rigging, to get the G1 hands to look like the G8F hand pose, the G1 hand will almost certainly go out of limits, and the pose will be clipped. Can I ask you to either set 'limits off' for the whole figure before the pose transfer, or set both hands and all child bones to off.
