Is there a way to save a character like in Poser, where I can just open it and it will be loaded with whatever I saved it with (full costume, hair, props and morphs)?

I’ve tried the character presets thing and that didn’t work.

Thanks.

Save the scene with the character’s costume, hair, pose etc.

Then when you want to use the character in another scene, do File Menu > Merge, and bring in that old scene to the new scene.

Or if you save the character’s scene into an official DAZ content folder, it should appear somewhere on the Content tab, so you can just double click it.

That works, be sure you do not have LIGHTS in the set you save JUST the character and all the clothes. Then save to your location of choice in the MY Library folder. When you wish to ADD the Fully made character to a new scene this is the SAFEST way to do it. RIGHT click the saved file, from the popup menu pick Merge. I use that method all the time. Right click never errors, I have had hiccups from the dropdown main file menu.

If you are using DAZ Studio, DS4.5 now has a feature to save only selected elements of a scene.
