DAZ 3D is pleased to announce the release of DSON Importer for Poser, version 1.0.0.27!

What is new in this version? Do I need to update my copy?

The 1.0.0.27 version is a bugfix release. It resolves several issues with the loading and/or handling of DSON format content. All new downloads of the product will be of this version. A change log with additional information can be viewed on the Documentation Center.

The highlights are:

1) This release resolves the “SetGamma” error message popup for Poser 9 users, introduced by the previous release (1.0.0.13), when loading DSON based assets that apply images to a surface.

2) This release fixes loading issues with some saved scenes that the “Transfer Active Morphs” script had been used on.

3) Modified import so that only subd props come in with smooth polygons enabled.

For more information on the previous release (1.0.0.13), see this thread.

Has the Genesis Starter Essentials content been updated too?

No, the Genesis Starter Essentials content that is provided with the product has not been updated. There is no need to download it again if you already have the 1.6 version that came with the initial release.

How do I get the latest version?

If you have previously purchased DSON Importer for Poser, simply locate it within your Itemized Order History and then click the “Reset” link on its immediate right. This will cause new links for downloading the latest version to be added to your My Downloadable Products list.

If this is your first time downloading DSON Importer for Poser, simply follow this link, click the “add to cart” button on the page and then follow the checkout process.

Is there any documentation?

Yes, documentation is located here. Within the User Guide section, you will find information relating to:

- Installation and Requirements
- Using the DSON Importer for Poser
- Converting Content for use with the DSON Importer for Poser

Daz should be a dear and automatically reset the “DSON Importer for Poser”, for all that have it in their “Itemized Order History”. So that their valued customers, can avoid having to bother with this flawed “Itemized Order History” list

Do we have to uninstall the previous version or do we just run the .exe again and it will overwrite?

The installer asks if you want to uninstall and advises you do, I just made sure yes was checked and continued on with the instillation.

Is there a way in Poser to tell which version of DSON is currently installed or do we have to keep checking our account history for the version number?

Is there any kind of list of which files have been converted to DSON files. For example….The Troll for Genesis has been converted.

I can’t see one, but it might be possible to add the version number to the log (as DS does, for example) - you could make a feature request through the bug tracker.

Thanks, just installed it too.  I never did have any trouble with it but updated just in case.

Thank you DAZ! I just installed the new version of DSON. I have Poser 9 & I am now able to work with Genesis. I’ve found no problems so far. (Knock on wood.) I let it install over my old version & the only change I made was selecting Poser 9 instead of letting it install to the default Poser Pro 2012

I’ve just been given a solution that works now:

Start Poser.

In Poser, go to Scripts>Python Shell

Into the window that opens, type

import dson.dzdsonimporter 

and hit return, then type
dson.dzdsonimporter.version(){/code]
(as you type the second line a pop-up will appear with suggestions - once you see the one you want you can double-click on it to avoid having to type the whole thing out, but don’t forget to add the parentheses at the end)
and hit return - the version number of the importer will then be shown.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Glad the new built solves the library problemes some folks had, but when will the broken Poser scaling be fixed ?

With neither the (newly improved) Poser scaling working, nor Genesis’ built in moveable joint centers being directly acessible in Poser, Genesis’ flexibility is severely crippled.

All my characters are created strictly following real world proportions, so I do need a working and fully controlable way to lenghten or shorten limbs, broaden shoulders, re-scale feet and hands, etc.

Scaling works great in Studio and it (finally) works great for every other figure in Poser, too, so what is the problem ?

Thank you Richard. Will check. Noticed the new newsletter stating it’s been updated again. Hopefully I’ve already got it, but if not, now I have an easy way to check smile
