There is a problem with DSON Genesis and it's male genitalia. The genital figure doesn't subdivide in Octane when conformed to Genesis. If the figure is just parented, the subdivision works. Any idea what could be wrong?
Yes, I would expect this to happen. "Genesis" is a figure, and the only way to tell if a figure is a genesis figure is the presence of an actor in the figure called "__SUBD". When a genesis figure is detected, all props attached to that figure as assumed to also be genesis figures, so the cages of these prop are not rendered by the plugin - only the "__SUBD" mesh is rendered.
In the situation where you have a genesis prop NOT parented to a genesis figure, the plugin will not pickup that it is a genesis prop, so will render both the cage and subd mesh, and the cage will most likely be outside the subd mesh, so give the impression the subd mesh is not being rendered.
So in summary, rendering of non-parent genesis prop is not currently supported by the plugin, but it might be possible to implement this is the future if it was required.
