I hate being that guy, but I used to spend a fairly large amount of time lurking on the big posts about Genesis and Poser, and general interoperability between the two companies. But with all the forum changes I think the posts were lost, so, as much as I hate being that guy.. I’m going to be.

What’s the story with Genesis in Poser? I know it was a long way off (if ever) and there are a couple slightly clunky ways to import from DAZ Studio, but I’ve been out of the game for a month or two.

Please tell me that the Poser and DAZ coders are currently locked in a cubicle with a lot of alcohol and are cranking out a working Poser Gensis! http://xkcd.com/323/

there was a very recent post in the old forum that said that Smith Micro was not pursuing “full” genesis compatibility at this time for a variety of reasons. Daz said they are not making V5/M5 for poser. will see if i can find link

Thanks! I didn’t think we could still access the old forum posts!

You might end up liking it. There have been many people that didn’t really want to switch over from poser to daz for anything but were compelled to try genesis. A few of them ended decided to add daz studio to the arsenal along with poser so they could leverage what they ended up liking in daz, but not necessarily replacing poser.

You might end up in the same boat. I wish there was documentation, but the forums taught me a lot so i would take advantage of that. Good luck

I hated DAZ Studio in it’s early versions… The latest version, however, I love.  The layout was always pretty good.  It was slick and customizeable.  But I had problems with figures.  It’s mostly Genesis that has me in D|S, but I have to say I do enjoy the software.  I wish it had better animation tools incorporated, but one can’t have everything.

yep, that is me. Long time poser user. started using DS3 to use reality/Luxrender and now i use DS4 pro most of the time. Works great with poser content and i am able to import all my old poser saved scenes. No reason you can’t use both. I like the library palette much better than the one in poser 2012, faster and easy to find things. genesis, has some great features and is a big time saver, even using V4 content. If i ever get some great heels that are made for genesis, I will probably stop using V4 altogether since i have all my V4 characters transferred over to genesis now.

If you still want to render Genesis in Poser, atm i think the method with the least amount of Studio involved & without quality loss would be:

-Load Genesis in poser with cr2 exporter
-Pose/morph genesis and save the pose & morphs in a format that studio can read
-open studio, load genesis and apply the pose& morph files (& maybe some autofitted clothes too cheese )
-export from studio as obj (with welded groups)
-import the obj into poser

I haven’t actually tried it though red face, so i’m not sure it will work but it might be worth a shot LOL

PS:Sorry bout all the smilies, wanted to try’m out surprised

The only reason I’m attached to poser is that I have all these morphs and poses that work in Poser but require a lot of work to look good.

Do you want to use these morphs and poses with Genesis or just on the figure they were made for? I’m not really sure I understand correctly red face

Well I guess it’s mostly poses, since they were all made for v4m4/a4/h4. I had thought that DAZ had made those poses work for genesis, but it seems to really dick up the feet and hands pretty badly.

I know there is a fix for the hands and feet, unfortunately i don’t know where it is now with the new site… Maybe someone else will be so kind as to offer a link smile
Genesis has some extra bones compared to gen4 figures though, so there might still be some tweeking envolved after…

Most of them were freebies anyway, I’ll just go lurk on mostdigitalcreations some more later >.>

Anyone happen to know any places to get freebie pose packs? It gets tedious installing poses 1 at a time.
