I knew it… people need to learn patience - Daz will always do… what needs to get done, one way… or the other. Might not happen when some of us desire it, because of red tape and all the other business rigamerole - but I knew it was going to happen.

I’ve downloaded it as well - can’t wait to give it a try!

Well done Daz3d… heh-heh - oh the things I’d love to say, but I won’t… but I’m smiling, oh yes I am.

I will be working on updating my files
Unfortunately I dont have a new enough version of poser to see how this all works yet.
But I should be able to find a way to do conversions regardless.
It may take a while…so be patient with me…..I have ALOT of genesis stuff

If I had the money I’d buy you a new copy of Poser just so I could get my hands on the conversions faster! :D You do have a lot of Genesis stuff and I can hardly wait to try it all out. As soon as everything downloads (got one more DSON file but things are slowing down), I’m going to try to convert EleBeast myself and see what happens.

So… I guess the next questions that has to be asked are:

How well does Genesis work with hair and cloth rooms? 

Cloth works. For best results collide with the sub-D bone, not the rest of the figure.

Hair is an issue because the geometry is Catmull-Clark Subdivided (Yes we shoehorned Catmull-Clark Sub-D into the importer), so the geometry you are applying the hair to is not the geometry that the hair is dealing with. smile )

I am truly delighted for Poser users. I am just slightly put out that Poser users get a fully working version before Carrara users, given that Carrara is a Daz product and has been in development Beta for well over a year.  Still I’m sure we’ll get there…soon…

this is the error it gives me….

:O

Your image is showing a 64 bit Poser and a 32 bit error.  Uninstall the DSON Importer, and make sure you frab the 64 bit installer for it and install that.  smile

Kat

come on cat!!!! i already told you i installed the 64bit version!!!!!!!!

is there a way you mixed up the versions????

All I can do is go by the screenshot which is giving a 32bit error.  smile  And ya….I have done it myself.  LOL Looked RIGHT at the 64bit and installed 32.  So, that’s why I double-check when trying to troubleshoot.  I can’t see your PC so can only see the pic you sent.  smile

You know those DSON Compatible products? That means that the files have been converted from DSA to DSON (DUF) Carrara 8.5 reads those. smile This work is not just for Poser users but Carrara users as well.

Please let me know how it goes.
I know the textures may be off since they use d/s SSS…and poser probably wont handle that.

I am so curious…damn I wish i could run it.

What about the “An errror occurred importing addon dson :” error?

Followed by
An errror occurred importing addon dson :
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File “D:\Runtime\libraries\Character\DAZ People\Genesis.py”, line 1, in <module>
  import dson.dzdsonimporter
  File “C:\PoserPro\Runtime\Python\addons\dson\__init__.py”, line 3, in <module>
  import dson.dzdsonimporter
UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xe8 in position 37: invalid continuation byte

When you try to load genesis from the library?

Kat im telling you the truth here…i downloaded only the 64 bit version…i doubled and trippled checked…

and im asking you again…is there a way that you accidentally uploaded a 32bit and named it 64bit? 
does everyone gets the same files?

see?

This is awesome news, I’ve been loving using Genesis to the point where I’m very reluctant to buy gen4 content now (granted, I’m new to the scene so Genesis was out when I got started). I love the way it works and every time I do go back to gen4 stuff it just feels so much clunkier.

I’m only a DS user right now but there’s so much great Poser content out there that’s more geared toward it, or is poser-only, so it’s been a bit tempting to sway but I wasn’t going to do it if I couldn’t take my Genesis stuff with me. Now I’m thinking of giving it a try and like that I should now be able to flip between the 2 as needed.

What I’m really looking forward to is if this helps push more of the other sites/vendors to make more great Genesis content. There’s already a bit over on renderosity but you can tell it’s in the minority, I’d love to see some of the other sties getting onto the Genesis bandwagon, and now that Poser can pull the content in I’m hoping that’ll happen.

Poser has its own SSS which I’m quite familiar with. It’s just a matter of time! Once I get it working I’ll PM you here or at deviantART with a render. smile

Be kind… this is my first full render that I’ve posted using Poser. I revisited my first PA product updated to Genesis, Axel M5 with some IDL and found one of those Poser logos to put on it too! It came out a bit dark, so I had to brighten it up in Photoshop. Also figured out how to create a DSON scene subset with Bluebird3D’s “A Bright Loft” (which is DS only) and imported that into Poser as well.

Nice render! I’d like to see somebody try that after running the EZSkin script.

I used the EzSkin script but adjusted the settings so I wouldn’t get that horrible wax or blown out SSS that’s not natural. This gives it a more subdued natural look which you actually want with this character.

BTW, for the Bright Loft set, did you have to adjust the bump and/or displacement for Poser, or did it look right as it was?

It looked fine for this setting.

Aww! Genesis’s proportions controls like shoulders width don’t work. Well, they do work, but Poser deforms the figure even in default pose, and more on bending.

Which isn’t DAZ’s fault, as Poser obviously still isn’t handling scaling to separate body parts right (and was the main reason why I moved from Poser to DS in 2006). I thought SR3 was finally supposed to have fixed Poser’s body part scaling problems.mad

Okay this is getting a wee bit tiring, I keep getting errored out when I try to post or load things. Or even pull up the web pages here.

DAZ_Spooky you said that morphs for genesis will already work. What I want to know is…

Does that mean that this: http://market.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=94447 and this http://market.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=89123 will work without having to be converted to the DSON format?

I just tried one of my Ashley characters (one of the young adult shapes) and he’s a disaster right now :(.
