I think if you will stick with us over the next couple of months, you will be very pleasantly surprised with the direction we are going with Genesis. I can’t give any details, but you Poser users will be in heaven. Stay tuned to the DAZ 3D Channel.

Might there be any news of progress available. It’s been about a month and the silence is so far deafening…

The prospect itself is quite exciting. Even to hear it’s still active in progress would be news.

As much as I would love this compatibility to take place as a Poser Only User, DAZ has a lot of site fixes and store fixes and messaging fixes for the user to be worrying about poser compatibility for their Genesis products.
As much as I love the idea of being compatible with this great technology I prefer a better experience at least to the level it was BC (Before the Change).


Different departments work on different things.  So while the web team works on the site, the DS development team can work on DS.

Not only that, but since the schism has definitely hurt both platforms in terms of sales, without healing that schism, what is the point of a site and store fixes? That’s putting the cart before the horse to some extent.

Why do you think that DAZ looks at this as a schism?  Have you seen anything from DAZ that makes you think they look at this as a schism?  DAZ is going one way, and the Poser community is going in a different direction.


DAZ is looking for a new customer base - one that doesn’t have large, bloated runtimes of content.  Poser users aren’t just going to dump all of our Gen 4 content to use genesis - even if they move to DS4, because of autofit, all of the Gen 4 content can easily be worn by genesis. 


Poser users are going to buy a lot less than new users, therefore, they are not as important to DAZ.  It is Econ 101.

...and some of us are looking to board the launch back to the harbour.

Yes, I have not really been “taken in” by Genesis as I am not in the position to spend the hundreds it will take to make it as useful as the Gen3/4 and Toon figures I already have, as well as invalidate the clothing/content creation tools I spent hard earned money on.  Sometimes one has to protect one’s investment rather than just toss it all in the dustbin for the next new shiny thing.

Unfortunately, software isn’t like a car, you just can’t trade the old one in on a new model.

Full price for Poser versions or upgrades for previous buyers (whatever you’re going to do with genesis addons)?

Poser SR3 to be compatible with Genesis? C’mon, how would they add support of a still nonexistent format? Even DS4 and DS4.5 are incompatible.

The DSON specification has now been published, though you are right that 4.5 is the first version of DS to use it.

I have to personally disagree.  Yes, they are looking for nwe customers, that is true for every company but for the excisting customers and their content, DAZ never whould have made the autofit feature if they wanted everyone to put away their previous content for previous generations.  As for purchasing, we all should be good stewards of our money.  At the same time though, if you see value in something, you will be willing to invest in it.  I still buy A3 clothes cause I still use her and still see potential for the figure.  Gen4, I never really accepted until I started seeing much more potential in M4 over M3.  The only acception before that was whether or not I felt something could be fit to A3.  Still speaking from a personal view point, I see much greater potential still in Genesis over the previous generations and feel it is what the Gen4 should have been.  And because I see Genesis that way, I am willing to invest in content for Genesis that I see use for.
