Hi everyone,

Once again, it’s a nightmare.
I’ve just bought M4 Army Combat Uniform.
But, it’s just impossible to apply to Michael 4 in DAZ. Nothing happens…
I’ve tried with Poser2012, find the way to the content, and so on…

I’m getting bored of that. I’m sorry having no time to just searching solutions to get my things working well.

I did the 4.5 update and now, I can’t find Michael or Victoria anymore !

Please anyone has a good way to use this application ?

I just checked because I haven’t used that uniform since updating to DS 4.5
Everything applies to M4 quite well, including boots.

How are you applying the clothing and what, if any error message do you get?
Have you checked the log file for any messages?

Thanks Medzin,

I have now to search for Michael4 in content library.
It founds 2 Michael4. The first doesn’t work, the other has a script attached, and working when I double click on it.
Then I search for pants. It founds two PPants_Green-soiled and two PPants_green. When I double click nothing happens or it loads and then nothing.
I’ve tried with another pants I found called !ACU Pants Default, but it doesn’t work.
Well I don’t know where to search now…

In Poser it finds it in user/documents/daz3d/studio/my library/content/people/michael4/clothing/us army/us army mats
and I can apply to michael

But when try in Daz, nothing happen…

You are applying the TEXTURE to M4. You need to find the Item that is the Clothing. Those are just the Textures for the Item of clothing.

Yeah, the clothing itself should be in the figures, as it is conforming clothing

As stated above, you are applying textures to M4, the clothing should be located in

\Runtime\Libraries\Character\DeepSpace3D\Clothing\US Army\ACU Boots.cr2

The 2 Michael 4’s you find are the regular and one with Morphs++ attached.  This is normal for most installs.

I take it that you are looking in Poser Formats > My Library > Figures inside the Content Library tab for these items?  That is assuming you installed to the default location.  The DAZ Studio Formats will only display native DAZ Studio files, like DS, DSA, DSE etc etc.

Thanks all,

Yeah, I thought I was applying only textures.
I found clothes here (see image) but, I can’t apply them. Nothing happens. Just : nothing happens…

Another strange thing is when I search for DeepSpace3D, nothing’s found…
Maybe I should reinstall.

Hi seboulba1,
I don’t have this set myself, but looking at your screenshot i think you’re still trying to load textures instead of the clothing itself.

(edit : i gave some incorrect information and removed it)

@seboulba1

You are still looking in the wrong place!

You need to be looking in ‘Poser Formats’ as explained before.  These uniform items come as Poser CR2 files, and all you will see under DAZ Studio Formats are the Materials for them

Oh God, where am I ?
Ok, I’ve returned to Poser, and see the path of these objects.
I applied them to michael4 in Poser, with success.
And when follow the same path in Daz, there’s nothing, no boots, no cap…
But they are in that folder…
=:cD
Am I still wrong ?
Maybe dumb…
Tell me…

HI smile

From your screen shots, the Daz Studio image shows that your selecting the DAZ STUDIO FORMATS section,...

You should be looking in the POSER FORMATS section,... (see pic)

for me. these are installed to my Poser 6 folder,. your poser folder may be different.

The main items in this product are supplied as Poser format,. and there’s also poser materials,. (in the pose folder)
the product also comes with Daz Studio (materials) but, the main objects are only supplied Once (in poser format) since Daz Studio also loads Poser format.

Hope that makes sense smile

What I meant, was to look in DAZ Studio under Poser Formats as shown below.  As I said, the objects themselves are under Poser Formats, but the DAZ Studio optimised materials are under DAZ Studio Formats.  If you installed both files into the My Library folder, they should be there, but you may have installed them into a folder called content.  Your image is far too big, and I cannot see the install path.

Please see below for where you should look for these items in DS4

EDIT:

Ah, I see Andy beat me to it.

You must also make sure that your folder called ‘content is listed as a Poser Formats Folder in Preferences (F2).

Also,... for future issues,...

Each product is supplied with a “Readme” file,. which is installed with the product,..
Usually into a folder called “Readme” within the folder where you installed the product.
EG: Poser / readme

This file contains a list of the file locations for all the items in the product.

If the product is supplied as Poser,... then it’ll be in your Poser formats section in Daz Studio.
If the product is only for Daz Studio,. then it’ll be in the Daz Studio formats section

Hope it helps smile

No sir,
There’s no DeepSpace3D folder by this way.
I’ve searched the entire folders, and the only way to find them, is the one I’ve shown.
But nothing appears… As my pics can show you…

I understand what you say, but these items have been installed in the Daz folder. I can get them in Poser at this place…

Select POSER FORMAT.

You should then see a “My Library” folder.

this is the area within Daz Studio which contains any “Poser format” products.
(if the user doesn’t have poser, and/or has installed a Poser format product into Daz Studio)


Inside Poser formats / My Library / Figures / Deepspace3d / ....

you should find the products there.
