I have been self teaching myself both Daz and Poser I went to convert my Daz figure to poser and when I opened it in poser it looked like Andy. So that being said I am using Poser debut How do I get them back and forth with out it loosing everything? I have the plug to turn it in to the Crs.. etc.
What am I missing?
You saw Andy because Poser Debut couldn’t read the genesis file. What you are missing Python support to use plug-ins.
Poser Debut is a cut down version of Poser 8 - basically the Poser 4 feature set with the updated core Poser 8 code. You can load, conform & render, but not much more with Poser Debut.
Python scripting is in the full version of Poser. If you want to get the grey golom into Poser, you will have to move up to Poser 9 or Poser 2012. With Poser Debut, you can use the legacy figures (the Gen 4 series and earlier from DAZ, along with any other non-daz figure such as Rikishi, Gloria, Clark, Apollo Maximus, Dina etc.) These figures should also work with no problems in DS4.
The figures that you will not be able to use “out of the box” in Poser Debut are genesis (due to the requirement to run python scripts) and the new weightmapped figures in Poser 9 (Alyson 2 & Ryan 2), or the new independent weightmapped figures such as Antonia or the weightmapped versions of legacy characters (Smith Micro is weightmapping the G2 figures (Sydney, Jessi, Olivia, Miki 3, James, Kelvin, Koji, and Simon - and developing a new male figure, Tyler to go with Blackhearted’s incredible Alyson2 characters - Anastasia & Shae)
