I’ve gone bog-eyed reading through all these posts for the answer I’m looking for smile I’d be interested to know if there any Poser 9 users here that are able to use the DSON importer without the library totally freezing after the Genesis figure imports with DSON?
Windows 7 using the 32 bit version!

Danny

Hi Danny,
  I have Windows 7, 64 bit.  But I am using Poser 9 32 bits. I used the DSON 32 bits on my computer. Genesis works great. I need to learn more about using Poser. Renders real fast. I am working my way up to multiple characters in a scene, I haven’t put all my Daz and Poser stuff on my computer yet.

Hi WitchStorm. It’s good to know that it does work on a system and set-up that is similar to my own. With the library freeze I’m suffering from I feel so near but yet so far ;-S

Danny

im using PP2012 64 bit, i have poser fully updated with all the SR’s yet my library still freezes with Genesis in scene .... im still reading the 50 pages but is there an answer on how to resolve this?

I’ve lost track of where the workaround was posted—something like Preferences > General > Library > Startup > External

In PP2012 if you set your library preferences to External, it will solve the lagging/freezing issues .... Laurie posted this over at Rendo forum for Poser.

Just wanted to share how an existing .duf format product was updated with a Poser Companion File (pcf) installer a couple of days ago ...

The product is Yolande Hair for genesis and mil4. The genesis version was already in .duf format since it was released last month, plus the mil4 version is hr2.  So it originally had the trx installer for genesis/ds and a separate mil4 installer for the hr2 package with poser and .dsa mats.

Since the pcf update, there is a third installer which just installs the poser companion files.  The 3 are:
Yolande Hair - Victoria 4 (1 PC & 1 MAC)—this is the mil4 hr2 version with .pz2 and .dsa mat presets
Yolande Hair - DSON Core - (1 PC & 1 MAC)—this is the trx genesis ds .duf version
Yolande Hair - Poser Companion - (1 PC & 1 MAC)—this is the NEW genesis poser dson importer version

I like how the pcf files are separate so you don’t have to install it unless you want to… and it can be updated/dropped independently if needed.

Here’s an example of what I was able to do once I got the DSON importer working. I just wish that it would import into Carrara 8 decently. I do most of my rendering in C8 and setup in P9.

does anyone else has a black line towards his body in the preview in poser?

is this normal?

Those are on whenever the figure is subd or being grafted to.

So this must be the reason will can’t hide body parts !

Got it Rob thanks

To Hide a body part - The “Visible” check box in your parameters will not work on Genesis. To hide a body part do the following:

  Select the body part.
  In the Parameters pane, scroll down to “MeshResolution” and expand it using the (+).
  Set SubDivision Exclude to “1.000 (1 = Exclude “ON”, 0 = Exclude “OFF”)

I mean DSON Importer Preferences have to be set up correctly and point to the writable Runtime smile
most folk skip it

Rogerbee - 16 October 2012 02:32 PM

True, you can do it that way, but I was just going with what I found to work.

CHEERS!

Will it not work if you don’t do that!? If it does work then perhaps I did it. It was early in the morning when I set DSON up and I was kind of on autopilot!

Anyhow, when I’ve done all my shopping I’ll get Buddy 2 to M5 set up.

CHEERS!

EDIT:

Ah, I had a look and I had done it, I’ll go back to my steps in case anyone reads them!

Library issues are interesting, I remember asking about them way back when I first got P9. I was told then that Flash and the way other browsers used it could cause library issues in Poser. As far as I can recall, Google Chrome and Firefox aren’t good due to the way they utilise Flash. Safari, so I was told, was one browser that wouldn’t have much effect. I’ve been using it as my default browser for ages and haven’t really had that many library issues. Keeping Flash up to date is always a good idea and you always have to do that via IE.

I can only go by what has worked for me though, other issues others have had might well be due to other things I haven’t encountered.

CHEERS!

EDIT

I think Adobe Air is something that P9 and PP2012 also make use of, so it’s best to update that when necessary too.

no idea I did not checked , but this may help until then http://www.mec4d.com/store/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=86

The Genesis figure in DAZ Studio supports several different UV mapping options (V4, M5, ...).  What is the default UV mapping for the DSON Genesis figure? Will alternative mappings be supported?

Thanks!  This is exactly what I was looking for.

Watching the videos on the site is also a good idea.

Thanks again to Mec4D for the free UV mapper!

I have another problem.  I’ve installed Genesis Evolution Bodymorphs 1.4 which is supposed to be DSON compatible.  The files are
in Genesis Essentials\data\DAZ 3D\Genesis\Base\Morphs\DAZ 3D\Base.  However I can’t find the morph dials in PP2012.  I am probably looking in the wrong place!
