As I said last time you asked about that, the need there is for an importer for the desired application - it’s not a feature of DS.

I had a very busy month…
forgot that I asked this question earlier. shut eye
Why did daz created a dson exporter for poser?
If daz can do this for poser, why not for other 3d software?


DAZ3D cannot do everything.

Because SmithMicro had to do something first for Poser, before Daz could do something about it.

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?

Exactly. I read some nice info in Paolo’s Reality 3 for Poser thread over on RDNA regarding how the DSON Importer came to be. Not in depth but just enough to understand. smile Here is the thread http://forum.runtimedna.com/showthread.php?72442-Reality-3-development-journal can’t remember what page.

Heh… they could make a MAYA Plug-in… but they’d have to charge like $500 or so for it to make it worth doing.

Pret A 3D Said;

That is so nice of you to say. As you know I started the Reality project with Studio and I am making a living today because of all the people who daily buy Reality. There are a few thousands of you crazy Reality artists out there now!
The most often requested feature for Reality was… a Poser version. After I released version 2 I decided to see if it was possible to make it happen. Up to thatnp point there where technical obstacles that stopped me from writing Reality for Poser. That is because I care so much about the user experience. What Reality aims to be is a rendering system that makes the task of using something as complex as Lux simple and fun to use. To do that it is needed to have a very sophisticated level of intereaction between the user, the software and the hosting application, Poser in this case. At that time Poser didn’t have the infrastructure to provide that level of interaction and integration.

This is why I contacted Smith Micro at the beginning of this year to see if they would work together to bridge the gap that exsisted at that time. They have been just wonderful in embracing this project and, for the first time in years, they added an expansion to their API ( Application Programming Interface ). This expansion, the new Add-on Framework, has been designed in cooperation between our two companies and had caused some additional “side effects”, like the DSON plugin for Poser.

What is emerging, as Reality 3, is a brand new architecture that will allow me to bring this technology to other platforms. Poser will get i be first because Studio users had Reality for two years already. After the Poser versions is out I will work on the connection for Studio. My goal is to bring the Reality technology and User Experience to several platforms so that artists will use whatever “flavor” they prefer.

I have to say that I am very impressed by what I see happening in Smith Micro. The level of dedication that they have for their software and the plans for the future (don’t ask, I can’t tell) are impressive. I had left Poser for a while, since I was working with Studio so much, but when I started working with it again I started appreciating more and more its rebustness and sophistication.

Regardless, whatever program you prefer there will be a great Reality solution for it.

Happy New Year to everyone!

I am not looking forward to Daz 5. I bought Daz 4 Pro, and would like it to be fixed before they even think about Daz 5.

Yes!  What she said!

Features?

1. Stability
2. Everything working that is there already!
3. Did I mention stability?

Morning Coffee:  have you seen that Geico commercial?  CGI coffee tastes terrible.
Clean the flat:  it’ll be as neat and organized as your content folder.
Fold my laundry:  needs morphs for that.
Buses running on time:  no, no one can do that.

DAZ3D has a 30 day return policy.  Contact them here - https://helpdaz.zendesk.com/requests/new

Fill in the required info and they WILL refund you for those plugins that do not work in DS45.

Make sure you check the product page closely to ensure that its states it works in DS45.

DAZ Studio will export OBJ which is the most universal 3D format.  When you move a model from one app to another it is NEVER perfect and will always require work.  There is no way to avoid this as all apps have thier own ways of doing the same thing.

...that would have to be taken up with DreamLight.

Still waiting to see he will come around and update MM and LDP for 4.5

I still have 3Advanced installed so I can use them.

For Z-Depth, there is this product - http://www.daz3d.com/atmospheric-effects-cameras-for-daz-studio

As for multi pass, I am not sure what is going on under the hood for DS when it renders.

DFORMS: the ability to use DFORM with the POLYGON GROUP EDITOR so I can select specific groups for the DFORM to Affect

TOO: the ability to easy replace morphs… and by that, I mean something such as a baked clothing morph for say, V5… so, if I make adjustments via DForm to an item, I can easily replace the baked morph from there…
