    Got it working in D/S4.0 :-)

    On W7, I "had to" move the file to be edited "out" of the Programs folder, edit it, then moved it back where it belonged. In D/S4.0 after loading Genesis and getting the page setup; I had to click on the head or hands ... then click back to the full figure image to get that image to refresh properly. For some reason D/S4.0 seems a little sluggish for refreshing its folders on my new computer, might have something to do with the new AV ... however ... it's all working and thank you again very much. :-) The instructions in the .pdf were great.

    I am elated that this work was done to restore Powerpose for Genesis.

    I am overjoyed and was always kvetching about the lack of support for it.

    You guys are awesome and I concur with the poster who suggested placing the new directions and download links in the first post to make them easy to find.

    It's a known issue in PowerPose, sometimes you kinda loose your dots. Adding a default camera and switching selections between genesis and the camera seems to do the trick best.
    Patience55, in your screenshot i still see the old generic template, not the new genesis template. In Win7/Vista under certain conditions (user account control settings or so) when you manually change or overwrite a file, windows will make a copy of the original file, place it in virtualstore and feed that copy to Studio instead of the changed file.
    If you edited the templates.dsx file before changing the security settings as explained in the .pdf that copy might still be there and be used. Try finding the virtual store (user\AppData\Local\VirtualStore) and see if it has a Program Files\Daz directory in it. If so, just delete it. Then check the templates.dsx again, it may have reverted back to the original now. That virtualstore can be a very painful pain in the you-know-what.

    Many thanks to all who contributed to achieve this. Like Adzan I also learned some new stuff reading this thread.

    In what version will this be fixed?

    please no quickfix update by users, the daz team have to fix this for all the users.
    this have to be build into the main program.

    Ok, so here it is : a Genesis template for the PowerPose plugin.
    You can download the files here. I also included a pdf with installation instructions.
    Basically you just drop the templates in the PowerPose directory, open the file Templates.dsx in the powerpose directory with a plain text editor or an xml-editor and add the following lines between the last and at the end of the file :


    Genesis
    bipedDynamics.dsx

    Genesis




    Next time you start Studio and select a genesis figure, powerpose will look like this :

    have you sent this to daz to fix this in the main program? i have add the zip to bugrequest thread for fix.

    what about more controls for the face (and have easy build of expressions?)

    Rkane: I updated the first post a few days ago with the link and other information.

    fixme: I let the appropriate DAZ guys know about this fix, it's up to them now whether they will include it in a future version of Studio. Blackfeather also explained that he wasn't able to add morphs to Powerpose, so we'll have to wait and see if DAZ will ever consider it.

    I second that! Thank you so much. I didn't use the Powerpose feature much but I tried it with this Genesis fix and it's fabulous!! Thanks again to everyone for making it possible. :-)

    Love, Jeanne

    Templates can be made for basically every geometry that has bones/nodes. If there's no template powerpose will present you the generic template (the standard grey figure) but you will only be able to control the bones that are both in the selected object as well as in the generic template.
    It's actually not as complicated as i make it sound :-) Just select the clothing you want to control and open the powerpose-tab.

    OK, who can write a tutorial about this? as it seems so easy to do, it can 't be hard to write a tutorial for this subject.

    ps: use the pinning option (with CTRL) from within powerpose is so good.

    There's still a few things i haven't figured out yet, mainly on the dynamics files, but with some help from adzan, we might be able to cook up a tutorial on this. (no pressure there, adzan ;-) )

    I didn't know there was a pinning option in powerpose. How does that work ? I can see the pin when i ctrl+click in powerpose, but it doesn't seem to have much effect ?

    I was actually going to ask about pinning too. Maybe it's an unfinished feature?

    The link with the files seems to be unavailable :(

    Both links seem to work fine, must have been a server hickup or something.

    Sorry, can't do that. You'll have to ask Daz...

    Some people are never happy, so don't be sorry!

    Thanks I never used this feature before and think it could be useful. Got it working last night. Good stuff.

    It's great when people empower themselves (and this case others as well) instead of just siting back and complaining.
