Yes, it is TRUE! - DAZ 3D innovates again.


Working closely with Smith Micro, DAZ 3D has created a way for Poser users to seamlessly install and load the most popular Genesis figures such as Victoria 5 and Michael 5 into Poser. Poser users can now install, load, and interact with Genesis figures very much like any other native Poser models. Now Poser users can enjoy the benefits of the award-winning Genesis Figure Platform.

DAZ Introduces the DAZ Scene Object Notation (DSON) Importer for Poser. DSON is a new file format (introduced in DAZ Studio 4.5) developed by DAZ 3D that enables the transport of scene and figure information between applications.


DAZ has converted the most popular Genesis products (with many more to come) to DSON compatible file formats. The DSON Importer for Poser reads the new file formats and loads the Genesis Models directly into Poser. No runtime conversion is necessary.  Once the DSON Importer for Poser is installed, users can install and load DSON compatible products into Poser with no additional steps.


To find DSON compatible figures and products look for the DSON Importer for Poser Notation or Visit this category.

Visit the DAZ Documentation Center to learn more about the DSON Importer for Poser


DSON Importer for Poser FAQ

Q: What is DSON?
A: DAZ Scene Object Notation – DSON is a new file format definition (introduced in DAZ Studio 4.5) from DAZ 3D designed to enable scene and content compatibility between 3D software applications.

Q: How do I get the DSON Importer for Poser?
A: Click Here Now  to get it FREE for a limited time.

Q: Are all Genesis based products compatible with Poser?
A: No. Genesis products must be created in or converted to DSON Importer compatible file formats. DAZ 3D has already converted dozens of its most popular products into DSON Importer compatible file formats and many more are coming soon. In addition, DAZ Published Artists are currently creating new products in DSON file formats that will also be available soon.

Q: Do I need DAZ Studio?
A: No. The DSON importer for Poser works completely separately and distinctly from DAZ Studio. The DSON Importer for Poser is a Poser add-on that installs to Poser.

Q: Are ALL Genesis features supported in Poser?
A: No. Some Genesis features such as collision detection and smoothing are dependent upon and function only in DAZ Studio.

Q: When I buy a DSON compatible product for Poser do I have to get DAZ Studio files too?
A: DSON compatible products include the user files common to both DAZ Studio and Poser. In addition, “companion” files are included that Poser uses to correctly load the content.

Q: If I’ve created my own content in DAZ Studio 4.5 can I make it ready for use in Poser?
A: Yes, an action to convert files for use in the DSON Importer for Poser has been added to DAZ Studio version 4.5.1.6 and can be found in the options menu of Content Library pane. Simply right-click on “Content Library” and choose “Create Poser Companion Files…”

Q: Where can I learn more about the DSON Importer for Poser?
A: Visit the DAZ Documentation Center to learn more about the DSON Importer for Poser

Remember to download the new Genesis Starter Essentials files that include companion and core files. These are needed to run with this tool.

BTW, I really liked the DSON Importer documentation. Who ever wrote that should do more (A lot more…)

This is long overdue and highly welcome!  (But why did it have to come out now that I’m about to go overseas for two weeks… sigh.)

Those version don’t have weightmapping capabities, you’ll have to upgrade.

Edit: Also those don’t have the plugin interface SM opened up in SR3.

Those of us who’ve bought a bunch of Genesis content, on the hopes that a day like this would come, do we have to reset our downloads and redownload everything?

Also I don’t see gorilla in the list of DSON comapatable figures, or the products from the Battle Ready bundle for Genesis, Leigon, Praetorian, Percy, and Heracles all for Genesis of course.

Will these be updated in a timely fashion?

edit to add: Forgot to ask, can we install our genesis based content in a directory other than the default Poser runtime?

I just got this.  IN my downloads I have a WHOLE bunch of items.  They seem to be duplicates…

I’m not sure if there is any difference.  They seem to have the same names…

Note the 2nd line, they note a Mac or PC version. Also the different files do have different names. Look close.

I tried to add it to my cart but it didn’t work.  I got the message that it had been added to my cart but it isn’t there.  I actually don’t have Poser right now.  I had Poser 8 but my hard drive crashed and took Poser 8 with it, but apparantly this wouldn’t have worked with it anyway.  Maybe my hubby will be nice and get me Poser 9 for Christmas, especially now that Genesis will work with it. grin

You will need to get the latest Genesis Starter Essentials 1.6, and the other Genesis content will be updated as it can be. You’ll need to re-download/reset your files as they are updated. We plan to update the genesis content as we can.

Should DAZ Studio users update to the new 14812_GenesisStarterEssentials_1.6_trx.exe? Or is that only for Poser users?

Refresh your page. I had the same problem. It’s a cache issue with the browser. Give it a try.

You can update the starter essentials is you want. But it will still work with the latest DAZ Studio 4.5.1.6 that is now available to update in your downloads.
