Re: how to make morph targets in MD for Daz

I'm only getting started with MD8 (still attempting to take in various tutorials including the Udemy offering from Lori). I'm also interested in the interplay between DAZ Studio and MD but have decided that creating conforming clothing, even if I were to become skilled at making garments in MD, is n...

Re: Saving Avatar Pose

MD8 Startup Error
