That’s where the DSON Importer for Poser, .duf files, and the Poser Companion files come in. The Poser Companion files contains the files Poser needs in a Runtime structure.
If DAZ hasn’t yet converted the product to the .duf format (content is .dsf, .dsa, .dsb, .or .ds format only) and added the Poser Companion files, then you either have to wait for them to do so, return the product, or create the Poser Companion files yourself if you have DAZ Studio 4.5. It’s quick and easy if the product is already in the .duf format, but it’s a freaking pain and entirely too time consuming if it isn’t.
Creating Poser Companion files can be done on selected .duf files or on all the .duf files in a folder and subfolders with pretty much a single click. But converting from .dsf, .dsa, .dsb, or .ds format to .duf format can only be done one file at a time. Obviously, the more pieces to a product and the more material settings there are included, the longer it takes to convert to .duf format.
If the product is already DUF, then skip Step 1 and go to Step 2 in the Creating DSON Poser Companion Files documentation to create the Poser Companion files
Step 1 of the above documentation is how to convert to .duf format for figures and props.
How to convert Material and Pose Presets is in the following documentation:
Converting Material Presets to DUF
Converting Pose Presets to DUF
The documentation wasn’t clear on all steps, and I struggled with understanding several steps. It’s not really written for a Poser user with little to no experience with DAZ Studio, but seems aimed toward those who create content in DAZ Studio. But, once you figure out the process, it is rather simple.
I’ve been thinking of asking for a refund. I have Poser Pro 2012 and can load both Michael 5 and Victoria 5 just great. The problem is the content. The DAZ Studio Library is structured in such a way that Poser can’t access it (It has no Runtime). :-(
