Any update on whether GenX will get an update soon to work with 4.5?
Also, any idea on timelines as to when 4.5 will be rolled out as a final version?
I know that Dimension3D is WISELY waiting for the RC version to be released as an official version. As long as 4.5 is a Release Candidate, working on the plugin is a waste of time… inevitable changes coming in the next release could trash his updates in GenX.
I’m very curious to know how the new file formats will affect GenX and whether or not it will create new headaches for Dimension3D when adapting the plugin.
I’ve been slowly grasping the inner workings of .DUF and the new formats and still have much to learn, but the more I learn, the more worried I become that GenX ** might ** not work with Studio 4.5 at all.
** I say “might” because like I said, I don’t fully understand the new format. My fears are based on the fact that .DUF is not script based. It’s code and is applied to the daz scene or characters in a way completely different than the “deprecated” formats. Does anybody know how this will affect a plugin such as GenX?
Also, while on this topic, I hope and urge the people at DAZ to keep the ability to save presets (pose and character, etc) in a deprecated format. I’ve had problems converting old characters over into 4.5 and the only thing that saved my butt was saving as a Deprecated character preset and editing it within NotePad.
If you took that feature away and left us no way to edit a Daz file, it would create more headaches down the road.
