In another post I gave this answer about transferring XGen:

 

XGen Transfer

 

For the new system in 2017, Interactive Grooming, it's much easier.

 

If you want to transfer to a new mesh, with different topology but similar shape:

You just select the description and the target mesh:

 

TransferB.pngTransferC.png

 

then hit Transfer:

and the description will be transferred to the new mesh.

The you can add modifiers and make changes as needed.

Very useful info and explanation, thanks. For my model I tried the Transfer method but Maya always hung while writing a temp file.  I was however able to export the definitions and re-import them successfully onto other geometry.  (2018.4).

Hi 

Recently I tried to transfer a tiger fur into a head only model (just cut the body part) via interactive groom tool. The result is very weird as the image I post. Is there any solution ?  Thanksafter_transfered.jpg

How do you do it with the non-interactive xgen?
