facial polygons and eye reflection mesh makes for incredibly life-like
characters that truly convey emotions.
No matter how
life-like a figure is, it requires the ability to move and react within an
environment in a realistic way. With Genesis 2, the levels of articulation are
one of the most significant values to the base. For example, Genesis 2 allows
for increased individual movement of ears, toes, breasts, body joints and torso
as well as reworked weight mapping, showing the effects of these movements and
their interaction with gravity.

highlights thread here for details.
!! IF YOU
HAVE NOT UPGRADED TO THE 4.9 GENERAL RELEASE, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU
BACKUP YOUR CONTENT DATABASE IN DAZ STUDIO 4.x BEFORE LAUNCHING THIS VERSION !!
!! IF YOU HAVE
NOT ALREADY MIGRATED FROM THE VALENTINA DB BASED CMS, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
THAT YOU MIGRATE TO THE POSTGRESQL BASED CMS BEFORE LAUNCHING THIS VERSION !!
For anyone using a pre-4.9.x build of Daz Studio:
- The first time you launch Daz Studio 4.9+, any data that exists in the content database is migrated so that it can be used in Daz Studio 4.9+.
- The amount of time the database migration operation takes is proportional to the amount of data to be migrated.
- The database migration operation does not delete the data that it migrates from the previous location so that it remains accessible by earlier versions and other applications, such as Carrara.
- Daz Studio 4.9+ uses the same PostgreSQL database as Daz Studio 4.6 and later, and/or other applications, such as Carrara.
- A portion of the data contained within the database is shared amongst versions but not entirely. For example:
- Creating a category in either Daz Studio 4.9+ or 4.8 will cause that category to exist in the other version
- Assigning a file to that category in Daz Studio 4.9+ will NOT cause that file to be assigned to that
category in Daz Studio 4.8
- Assigning a file to that
category in Daz Studio 4.8 WILL cause the file to be assigned to the category
in Daz Studio 4.9+
- Reseting the database in any version of Daz Studio that uses PostgreSQL
(e.g., 4.6 or later) will purge all of data in the database, including any data
that may be used by earlier versions or other applications, such as Carrara.
- After the initial migration operation, edited metadata in Daz Studio 4.8
will not be migrated to Daz Studio 4.9+.
- A workaround is to export
User Data from Daz Studio 4.8 and reimport User Data in Daz Studio 4.9+.
