In order to export Genesis to Poser, you have to “work in DS” for less than five minutes.

You want me to take time I could use to work in Poser, to learn to use DS, so I can use it for 5 minutes,  when I can already use Poser?

Back when the competition was running, Cliff’s converter tutorial and scripts package was still on the front page of the store. A link, however, for future readers of the thread wouldn’t be a bad idea.

It would definitely make more sense if there was a link, or an explanation or something.

Images must contain (at least) one figure/conformer which has been transferred to Poser using the CR2 exporter. My tut (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genesis-to-poser-cr2) CAN be used as a reference to aid in doing this, but that is not mandatory. Nor is there any bar on exporting other figures as .OBJ files – but at least one should use the CR2 exporter. It can be Genesis or an item of clothing, or both.

Quoted from the first post ...

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I hate to be “that guy”, but is this product still valuable considering the new exportability of Genesis to Poser?

Oh, it is cheaper than the new DSON thingie, it works with older versions of DazStudio (for those that can’t or won’t update to 4.5.1.6), it works without installing an addon in the Poser software folder ...
I think it should stay.

The DSON Importer doesn’t require any version of DS - as long as the content you want is updated with companion files. And it is still free if you buy content, of course.

Thanks for the input, Kerya.  I got the DSON importer for Poser when it was free, and purchased this importer at the PA sale for half price. I have updated to 4.5.1.6.

I wasn’t asking if it should stay or not, that is not my place.  I was asking it was still valuable.  It sounds like in my case, I probably won’t be using it much, so thanks for your input.

The DSON only works with Poser 9 +, so people with older versions might want to use it.  I don’t have 9, but I still see no point for me to learn DS just so I can bring a stationary figure into Poser.  If I was going to use DS, I would use DS for the render.

Being able to use Genesis in Poser might be a reason for me to upgrade to 9.

The DSON Importer allows you to use Genesis in Poser without DS.  Older versions of Poser don’t support weight-mapping, so neither method will allow you to use Genesis in older versions of Poser.
