I’d be happy to help you figure out how to do this. If you can see those items in DAZ Studio, then you can create metadata for them. Can you confirm that after you add your externap Poser format content folders to DAZ Studio and select Scan Known Directories for Files or Search Hard Disk, that you see the items in DAZ Studio?
If you can do the above, then which step of the tutorial doesn’t work?
I add external runtime to “DAZ Studio Formats”, files are not showing in “content library”. I add the same external runtime to “Poser Formats” all files are showed. No problem, it is the expected behavior. Next, I go to “Scan Known Directories”. When scanning is ended in “Categories/Default/Unassigned” doesn’t appear all files. I search carefully the Unassigned folder and only *.p2z compressed files appears, *.crz and *.ppz doesn’t. So, I can’t reproduce the following steps on the tutorial.
I think “Search Hard Disk” is not appropriate to me, I don’t want that all poser folder in the disk are reading, only the folder of interest.
I currently use a clean installation of DS4.5 R3, since DS188.8.131.52 doesn’t work more in my machine.
