Default Can I have a port tuturial for dummies? (VRS)

I'm about to be forced to quit playing FFXI due to monetary issues so.. Maybe I can get into modding and still sort of contribute/have fun with the game.

I'm asking for a tutorial or to talk to someone over IMs or something on how to port something step-by-step. I've read several tutorials, but I always get confused with weights and manually adjusting things. Is there a method to it? Or just play with it untill it looks right?
I figure if I can learn how to port, then I won't need to request ports for things.. And I can contribute ports! (I'm a Mithra, so I'd prolly just port to them.)

Thanks. ^^

There is a porting video here.

It's mostly play around and follow the guides as you can. Granted the guides are kind of vague and whatnot. But the real best way is to just dive in and give it your all.

My advice, to get the hang of VRS, weights, etc start with porting weapons. Stick with the same destination as source (ie HM GS to Mithra GS) then venture into going to other weapons, (ie Sword to Dagger) there you will have to mess around with some sizing/adjusting, could even go to Katana, since you'll have to rotate it and whatnot.

Then you can try to venture into gear porting.. the "easy port guide" mooshy posted on ffxidats helps with minimizing the weight setting needed, but you still need to reshape/fit to the destination body.

Thanks. I'll try out porting some weapons.. Since I don't really know of any that I would want to port for myself, does anyone have a request I could try? Nothing too crazy I hope.

EDIT: ^This post should be in the request section? I'm requesting requests. >.>
That VRS porting video was confusing. Everything was fast, and the narration was behind. I'ma watch it a few more times and maybe figure it out.
