    "Okay, let me say this and be perfectly clear, OMG, the figure setup tools ROCK! To think this has been sitting on my hard drive while I've been fighting with rigging to make deadlines for the last four+ months... dear heavens...Wow...Speechless..." -Lady Littlefox

    Interested in creating your very own content from scratch? The Figure Setup Tools for DAZ Studio will allow you to create a figure skeleton, edit joints, and even includes an exporter for Poser's .CR2 file format.

    Whether you take an existing model that has yet to be setup as a figure for use in DAZ Studio, or create something from scratch via Carrara, Hexagon, or another modeling application of your choice, these Figure Setup Tools will allow to design your own rigging and then use the completed figure in either DAZ Studio, Carrara, Bryce, Poser, or any other application that will import DAZ Studio content and/or .CR2 files.

    Note: This has been updated to work with DAZ Studio 3.

    Note: This product does NOT work in DAZ Studio 4. See note below about Content Creator Toolkit.

    What's Included and Features

    Includes
    • Skeleton Setup - A tool that allows you to define the hierarchy of a figure’s bones, their geometries, and the relationships between them.
      • Specify a skeleton’s geometries (notice plurality)
      • Create and modify parent/child relationships
      • Establish joint rotation orders individually, or all at once with multiple selection.
      • Identify which joint parameters to create; twist, bend, curve, etc
      • Establish welding for bone geometry boundaries; parent/child and other
      • Establish inverse kinematics (IK) chains; and weights
    • Joint Editor - A tool that allows manipulation of a figure’s Joint Parameters, along with the ability to create and/or remove bones.
      • Visually manipulate all Joint Parameters currently supported by DAZ Studio and Poser; without additional tweaking.
      • Visualize weighting of Joint Parameters in Points, Wireframe or Solid display modes; with the ability to customize display colors and opacity.
      • Viewport navigation in DAZ Studio compliments your workflow, making editing faster and easier than ever.
      • Viewport manipulators give faster, easier and more robust control of Joint Parameters.
      • Optionally limit matrix (joint spheres) rotations to 2 axis for compatibility with Poser; (DAZ Studio does not exhibit the same limitation with matrix decomposition, thereby avoiding the common “joint sphere popping” during manipulation and sometimes unpredictable results).
    • CR2 Exporter - An exporter that allows users and content developers alike to export figures to the Poser Character (.cr2) format.
      • Support of Extensible Parameter (ExP) technology
      • Option to collect referenced files
    • Morph Loader - Allows users to add custom and third party OBJ morphs to figures.
      • Load Individual Wavefront Object (.obj) Morph Targets
      • Apply OBJ Morphs to an Entire Figure or just Selected Node(s)
      • Name and Create Root Control Parameter for Loaded OBJ Morphs Automatically
