This is a free update
to the Shazam custom
character. You WILL need to have the original Shazam character for this
update to be of any use.
This update adds two main features to the Shazam character
1) A Head resizing option. The original Shazam character had a Head to
Body ratio of roughly 1:5, which was as intended for the Toon genres
that Shaz was originally created for. Several other Toon-style genres
use different Head to Body ratios, and as several user's have expressed
interest in using Shaz in these art forms as well, we have attempted to
increase her versatility for use in these areas. The head resizing
morph-set will allow you to modify the head size to suit you particular
preference without the usual 'squishing' problems associated with using
the standard scaling dials. Joint-setting pose files have been included
to support some commoly requested head ratios, and others will be
added upon request.
2) Head morph scaling dials. These new dials allow you to modify the
'strength' of entire sets of head morph dials. For example, the "Scale
Head Shape" dial will increase or decrease the strength of all nose,
eye, lip, ethnicity, and other head-shape related morphs. The "Scale
Head Expression" dial will increase or decrease the strength of all
expression related morphs such as smiling or frowning. This was
intended for use with the above head resizing option but can also be
very useful for other purposes, such as using standard Vicky face files
with Shaz, as you can strengthen all the morph settings with a single
dial, rather than having to increase each dial setting manually.

unzip into the main main
Poser directory with the "create sub-folders" option. The zip includes
the proper sub-folder information for the included files. This update
will over write some of the existing script files in the
Geometries/mgToon/scriptsV1 folder. If you have made changes to the
scripts in this folder, you may want to make a copy of the folder first
just for backup purposes. The update will NOT overwrite or change any
of the morphs you have added to the Addin-UserXXXX.pz2 scripts.
This is a newly released free update. All efforts have been made to
test it, but if you should have any problems, please feel free to email
and we will resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
