I can’t find that DS script that Richard Haseltine made…the one that made the fake pz2’s so you can have DS mats in the poser folder. I"ve checked the link in his sig but that one doesn’t seem to be listed there. Am I going slightly mad? Does it still work? Does it still exist? Am I in a parallel dimension where my brain has liquified??

Seriously Kerya, are you like Jaki’s Search Superhero lately? *laughs* That’s twice you’ve saved my sanity. LOL. Thank you.

Well pooh, 4shared now wants you to “sign up/log in” in order to download?  How long have they been doing that?

Shows just how infrequently I download from 4shared.  ~shrugs~

Does this script work with DS 3 or only DS 4?

Since around July I think it was :(  I host my site freebies there. It’s one of the few sharing sites that worked on dialup, but then they forced people to have an account and then their server went downhill and I can’t download or upload files anymore from them *cries*  A friend, on high speed internet has problems with their server now too so it’s not just dialup that can’t do much.


Glad I found this topic. If I can get the file downloaded, are there instructions with it?  I hate having to hunt down DS mats in another folder. So many don’t have them to begin with and it’s hard to memorize which do and which don’t and where they were installed to in the DS folder. It’d be easier to have them all in a single location :(

Let’s try answering the right question, shall we, Richard?

Yes, the script will work in DS3 - I think that was where it was originally written.

There’s a readme, with instructions, but as usual I’ve no idea how comprehensible they are to anyone but me.

why not open notepad and save an empty file then rename the extension as PZ2?  Works for me all the time.

The script saves having to fiddle with the naming -especially if tere are a lot of files or folders.

Thanks Richard. I’ve always been able to figure things out as long as there is some sort of basic instructions. I can always ask about anything specific if needed too smile


While talking about scripts, any chance that the script that exports Poser format files (especially MAT files) has been updated to work with DS4, or even a new one that has popped up since?  I have the one for DS3 but I don’t want to keep DS3 installed since I don’t really use it as much anymore. No point taking up the space on the hard drive with something that isn’t used much.

Ahh Man… If I had known about this a year ago I could have made my 1 (not popular) item DS and Poser compatable.

I also would like to know about a script that will write Poser mat files from DS. What do others use? DS3 files are okay I still use it.

There is one that works in DS3… I think it was called “Poser Format Exporter” maybe?  I was hoping that either that or something similar would have been updated or created to work with DS4+ :(

I don’t remember the link to the one though, sorry :( It was in the old forums somewhere. One of the freebie threads maybe?

I’m not sure the Poser Format Exporter (PFE) will save the MAT pose. It is apparently DS3/DS4 compatible.

Create Poser Mats is the one you want for saving mat files in Poser PZ2 format.

CPM is here - http://www.sharecg.com/v/36622/Plug-in/Create-Poser-Mats

It works just fine in DS45.


The Poser Format Exporter is used for saving poses and expressions from DS in Poser PZ2 format.
