Subject: how to find what morphs were injected to V4
Hello all. Recently I have been revisiting old poser files that I've done many years ago using V4.2++ and would really like to give them a new breath of life. Unfortunately I have totally forgotten what character morphs I have injected into the base figure and in some cases the injected morphs do not show in the injection channels, like DMR's Kay, or Maddelirium's characters for instance.
Is there any way to discover which character was injected onto the base V4++ figure? I am using P11
I'm afraid that you'll have to do a lot of detective work.
To start with, turn on "show hidden parameters" in the parameters pallette!
Now examine the "Injection Channels" and look for any dials set to 1.000. The names of those channels might give you a first hint of the character name. (Remember to look in both BODY -and- HEAD!!)
If you didn't only load the character, but also applied it's textures, you're better off:
Go to the Material Room (advanced), look for the torso texture, and in the texture node, click on "Image_Source" name (first line from above, right side).
In the dialogue which pops up click "Browse". A file chooser will pop up which will land you right in the character's texture folder. By clicking your way up through the folder hierarchy you will eventually see the character's name, and it's creator.
If all this fails: There's still a "last resort", but it's quite "brute force":
- Load your NEW (==TARGET) figure into a new scene
- Then load your OLD (==SOURCE) figure (the one who'se morphs you want to copy!)
- Now make sure you select your TARGET figure!
- Go to Poser menu "Figure > Copy Morphs From..." and select your SOURCE figure. This will transfer all morphs to your new figure.
Unfortunately Poser tends to mess up in areas where vertices are dense (e.g. in the eyelids), so make sure to check these areas in "hidden line" view for any kinks!
Sorry, but that's all I can offer. Maybe someone else has a better idea?
