Pros and Cons
Other pros and cons to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.
- Rebirth’s bodies are billed as all in one bodies. You’ll find they are extremely versatile in regards to age. You can be a child, teen, adult, or anywhere in between all with one body. With the full version you can even swap between masculine and feminine with the same body.
- The neck can be adjusted for seamless use with male or female heads right from the HUD.
- The feet animations are revolutionary. When swapping between flat, high heel, etc the feet actually move into that position instead of just snap into place. Rebirth compatible shoes also move with the animation. You can see it in action here. It’s definitely worth checking out.
- The creators are very friendly and helpful. I sent them a notecard and heard back within 48 hours. In addition they kept in touch and made sure any questions I had were answered.
- If you purchased the Eden body before the Genesis head was released you can get a redelivery that comes with the head for free!
- In order to be so versatile the body is rigged in a very different way compared to other bodies. Your current shapes will have to be adjusted to work with Rebirth bodies. In addition you’ll find longer hairs don’t sit flat against the chest, but instead out further from the body than expected. You’ll want to use hair that doesn’t go below the shoulder in the front.
- While there are other brands making clothing for Rebirth, it’s nowhere near as easy to find third party outfits as it is for the bigger name brands. You cannot use clothing made for other bodies with Rebirth. There are different styles of first party outfits available right now, however, with more clothing being added regularly since the release.
