Default Trying to port legs from HumeF to ElvaanF

Trying to port legs from HumeF to ElvaanF (Red thong to be more specific). Is there any easy way in VRS to do this? I got it roughly in the correct position but the animation is messed up.

I've included the dat file.

Not really. You will have to manually resize the model to fit elvaan. My general method goes something like this:

1 - In modelviewer, export the item you want to port (in this case a pair of legs on humef)
2 - In modelviewer, export the base leg model on elvaanf
3 - In Metasequoia, open the humef legs
4 - In Metasequoia, insert the elvaanf legs
5 - Resize the humef thong to line up properly with the elvaanf legs (Note: You cannot add or delete vertices or anything in Meta. Also, only move the humef model's vertices)
6 - Save, import the humef legs back with modelviewer
7 - In VRS, import the humef legs
8 - In VRS, import the elvaanf legs
9 - Make a list of all the skeleton bones that the thong uses on humef
10 - Determine what the equivalent bone numbers are on elvaanf
Two paths from here.
Path A:
A11 - Copy the humef thong from the humef section over to the elvaanf section
A12 - Redo all the skeleton weights on the thong to use the new bones you determined in step 10
Path B:
B11 - On the humef skeleton, rename the skeleton bones from step 9's list to have the numbers in step 10's list
B12 - Copy the humef thong from the humef section to the elvaanf section
Then you should be good to export.

You may still have to do some tweaking, since there is no guarantee that the humef legs and elvaan legs have the exact same weights (just on different bone numbers).

Thanks for the info. I understand it now and was able to port HF to EF.

Result is here:
