OK….so I’m back to DLing some new DAZ files and just need to know what files I need to download for the following:

Carrara ONLY…...

and

DAZ|Studio 4.5+

I have not used (and don’t plan to use) the Meta files so what is the minimum I should be DLing?

Sorry, I am sure this has been answered but I don’t consider myself the sharpest tool in the shed…..rolleyes

Hi Sloth smile

For Carrara,. anything built for DS, or Poser, should work just fine.

The “Legacy” files, are for older versions of DS.
The “DSON” files, are purely for Poser 9 and above ,..to allow Poser 9 users to play with Genesis.

Hope it helps smile

Thanks 3Dage it does help but what about these PoserCF files?
Are these more Poser only files?

Yes,. the Poser CF (Companion File) is ONLY for poser 9 or better,.
As far as I know,. it won’t work without the DSON importer, which is for P9 and PP2012 ..and none of the genesis stuff will work in earlier versions of Poser.

If you have DS4.5 installed, (needed to use genesis in Carrara 8.5) then I’d download the Daz versions. as the C8.5 beta will read Duf format.

If you have Poser 9, or Poser Pro2012, and the DSON importer (needed to use genesis in Poser 9) then you can download the Poser versions.

If you have Older versions of Poser,.or Daz Studio then you can’t use genesis products, and if the “product” isn’t for genesis, then there shouldn’t be any issues, ..
for Example: 
V4 can be downloaded and installed to either DS. (Content / My Library) , Poser (Runtime), or a customised runtime folder.

It’s a bit confusing right now for everyone, especially for new customers, with multiple format downloads for any single product,.  but there are plans to make things easier.

Legacy files Older DS version
DSON core files   DS 4.5 and Poser 9+  both use these
PCF for poser 9 or higher as stated, to be used with the DSON importer.
