Hello efgnow,

You can resize the items using the parameter tab and playing with the scale property. The items do work properly with the poses as has been tested by DAZ, but if you are using any of the DAZ formatted poses (like a.DSA or .DSF file for V5 as opposed to a poser format file .pp2 for V4) one thing can happen where the figure does not get posed properly due to a bug in the program. The joints don't move far enough to put the figure in the right spot. This can happen with any set. You can look at my solution for this at http://fav.me/d4tjbz6.

Also remember that if you use a V4 pose on V5, etc., it won't look right because their joints are different. Also, the "Genesis" poses in that set are actually for the Gensis "Basic Male" shape.

If you are using a figure which has been altered from the basic shape, then the more it is altered, the more custom adjustment will be needed to make the pose work. DAZ has not come up with an automatically compensating pose-type to account for this yet.

I didn't make the furniture by the way. John did. I would recommend contacting him about the size and proportions of the furniture itself. You can send him a note at http://john-reilly.deviantart.com/ or you may PM him at http://www.daz3d.com/forums/member/223627/

Hope it helps.

Hi Tako, about the Artyficial living room furniture, which I bought a couple of days ago, the proportions--seat length to seat back height--are way off. Like the seat is 1 foot deep, while the back is 4 feet deep. Is this the way it's supposed to look? Because I find it really awkward to try to pose a sitting figure. They stick out too far on the seat, and are too short to the chair back.

I'm guessing there some aspect of you product that I'm missing. Is there some way to reproportion this furniture?

Thank you soooo much for doing this tutorial. It's exactly what I needed in order to figure out Generation X for Daz3D. You should post a video on youtube. I'm sure you would get tonnes of suscribers.
