I installed 4.5.1.6 and checked the plugins. One that is not loading is called dzmimicrealtime. I bought Mimic Lite ages ago in a sale (but I don’t think I’ve ever used it). I assumed it was this so I re-downloaded and re-installed it but this plugin is still not loading.

Do you need to upgrade to a newer version of Mimic, or is this plugin something different?

I think Mimic Lite is different from dzmimicrealtime, which I suspect is Mimic Live (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/software/mimic/mimic-live), which in turn is the only 64-bit version of Mimic available. This one appears to only work with a microphone.

Thanks for that, ReDave.

The product page only talks about using a microphone. I don’t know if you can fiddle about with the audio in Windows so it thinks an audio player output is the microphone, probably not supported even if it is possible.

Anyway, I hardly ever do animations so I’m not paying $49.95 for it. I had a quick look at Mimic Lite which has been sadly neglected by me so far.  I’ve found that it is a standalone program to create pose files so no plugin is needed, and the Daz Documentation page links to it’s manual (HTML and PDF versions) don’t work anymore. I assume it is still supported since it is still in the store.
