Was thinking of buying the GenX Plugin, it says that it’s compatible with Daz Studio 4.5, but has anyone tried it with the latest Genesis update (the dson one in Daz studio)? It’s great being able to convert some of the old clothes, but would also like to transfer some of my old V4 and M4 morphs over.

Yea! I finally have my Daz installers working correctly. For any one on a mac having problems with installers crashing as I did look at this link to help reset your permissions.

Darren the pic I posted earlier was done with the GenX plugin to transfer one of my M4 morphs in DS 4.5.


I’ve also found it interesting that when I apply textures that if I apply “Sample Jeremy no gen” from the materials folder and then apply one of my M4 textures, everything ends up mapping correctly. I tried it a few times without doing the MC6 file first and there were white lines everywhere! Havent tried it with V4 yet to see if it work on her too.

That is the effect of the different UV maps.
You can, like you did, apply the correct mc6 first
or you can do it with Mec4D’s free UV switcher

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Genesis morphs don’t have to be DSON compatible as long they land in the same folder data as the base morphs
if they are in the same folder they should load without problem when you add genesis to the scene in Poser as I have no problems with all my old morphs and shapes and I never had to upgrade anything they just works correctly .
so your path is correct as they should go there in your case and loading up
that is all I know ..

and I want to add without making another post , the answer regarding to thee black lines was answered already many times , you need to switch OFF the subdivision ( not set to zero )to get rid of them in the view port , but then you get low poly effect , the lines are needed and this is normal in this case , it is the :; cage ::  genesis use geografting and need it so they can’t get rid of that   only DS models like clothing and hair that don;t use native sub-d in DS will be free from this side effect as they don;t use the sub-d at all but also can’t be subdivided in Poser .

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!

if you dial up any morphs on genesis the grouping lines will vanish , that are the second lines that show up after UV’s switch but they are not permanent , just dial up value of the morph and back and problem solved , the other outline is sub-d side effect .
the UV’s switcher is mostly created for use with the pz2 and older mc6 preset , Poser Companion File preset have the UV’s already included so use it only with your old gen4 material presets smile

Part of the testing my team did on DS 4.5.1.6. Yes it works. smile

and that is how i have it installed also , Poser Companion File are only needed for Daz Studio 4.5 materials, figures, shape preset , poses and hair , this is the main Content Library that need conversion
that was created in DUF format , any morphs or it is V5 , M5 or S5 will load anyway as you don’t need any PCF for that ..

Genesis even works with Poser walk design as I tested yesterday with simple animations .. love it

I believe I may have got confused about this.I purchased this thinking that all morphs for Genesis I could install into the same folder as DSON and they would work OK with Genesis in Poser. Generation X will only install to DAZ Studio 4.5 and DAZ Studio and refuses to install to the DSON folder I created. So do I have to have DAZ Studio installed to create the duf and then use that duf on Genesis figure in Poser. I’m old and very confused BTW grin

Gen X is a plugin for DAZ Studio.  It needs to be installed into the Plugins folder in Ptogram Files, and used ‘Inside’ DS 4 or 4.5

After hiccups with AVG cutting in and crashing Poser and corrupt preferences, I finally managed to get a V5 render out.

She’s the standard body but with Danae’s Dublin texture via Mec4D’s UV script. The Genesis Bikini fits her like a charm!

Enjoy!

CHEERS!

To people who are having problems installing and/or finding the DSON menu in Poser 9: check your Smith Micro folder—in Program Files (x86) on Windows 7, not sure where it is on a Mac—and see if there’s a subfolder called Poser Pro 2012. Because that’s where the installer thinks the plugin should go and very helpfully creates this folder if you don’t have one. Naturally P9 can’t find the plugin if you let it do that, so point it at your Poser 9 program folder. DO NOT use the default setting. I discovered this last night and, yes, it was the correct 32-bit installer that I was using. I had to remove the Poser Pro 2012 installation, run the DSON installer again and tell it exactly where to find my Poser 9 program. Then it showed up in the Scripts Menu just fine.

*giggles happily* This is P3Design’s Jake morph, the M4 Jake skin from the Jake and Jeffery character set from Rendo, the sleek hair which decided to behave for a change, and Cath’s Roman Tunic. The red velvet texture… needs help…

GenX is a DS plugin and only works in DS.  Once you’ve transferred a morph to Genesis with it, you don’t need to do anything else, the morph dial will be present in Poser when you load a new Genesis.
