No, it’s a TriAx figure and needs DS4 or Poser 9/Poser Pro 2012 with the DSON Inporter

What if I load it in DS4, then export it as a CR2? Will I be able to load and use it in DS3, then?

No, because the CR2 will be exported with weight maps for use in Poser 9/PP2012 and DS3 will ignore them (and wouldn’t be able to use them if it didn’t) so you’d probably find no bending at all - each bone would bend as a block. There isn’t a way to get from a weight-mapped rig to an old-style parametric rig, as far as I know - it would be like converting an arbitrary image to a gradient.


grrrrrr ....

I guess it’s one more series of products I won’t be buying then.

I don’t like DS4 ...

I don’t know what either of you are getting at.  That couldn’t possibly sound more British if it came from the mouth of the Queen herself.  It sounds very much like something she would say.

Well then a new horsey to play with…nice work Daz3D.

I am going to, wrongly or rightly, assume MIL house Uvmapping is not a part of this horse?

And secondly, tongue in cheek, I am offended by this blurb being English

•Jolly good! I’d love a spot of tea whilst riding me ole DAZ Horse 2. Bob’s your uncle, and Jimminy Crupmets, gov’ner, this saddle is stylish. Even Mary Poppins would put on a bow tie and fez to ride this pony. Cover any of your wobbly bits and hop onto the English Saddle for DAZ Horse 2

First off it is “Jolly Hockey Sticks” or “Jolly good show”.
Don’t drink and ride, you might spill some.
It is Jmminy Cricket and you spelt crumpets wrong
“Jimminy Crupmets, gov’ner” Don’t mix the Queen’s English and cockney together..that is a no no
Mary Poppins would never wear a bow tie and fez…Tommy Cooper did.
We don’t have wobbly bits, we have a stiff upper lips.

Terrible, truly terrible…. smile wink

Bahahaha!

*clears throat*

I mean um.  How dare you critique Kevin’s attempt!  >_>

Might one enquire as to the source of your idiomatic information, sir? Was it perhaps a gentleman with a fine singing voice and a penchant for sweeping chimneys?

Also known to mingle with penguins and nannies of dubious sort, yes?

Excellent as this looks, something seems to be missing:  a foal morph!  Is it included but not listed?  Or is somebody working on a foal pack for this?

I have a question - I was looking at the Wagon Trails - They look nice, but I am not seeing anything about any harness in either one.  Does anyone know if a harness is included with either one or where one might be that could work?  As usual I have an idea and am trying to get the kinks worked out before spending the bit of money I have.

Why aren’t all the morphs and textures in the Horse2 product? Is there another product that will extend it without buying the Pro pack? I’m not really interested in all the extra items (as nice as they are).

How did you do this?

It’s a little geografting magic!
The new horse can’t match the genesis topology, so I’ve had to make a separate horse body for the lower half.
It’s a huge job to do a full version, I’m sure there’s people already working on it.

Considering you do this commercially i would think you’d be more open minded to having a more efficient and faster workflow which is what DS4 will give you over DS3, it did mine.

So, you’re saying it’s just as regionally appropriate as the blurb on the Western Saddle? smile
