I don’t post here often, but I have some questions about this.
I use Daz Studio on Windows and then transfer my files to my Mac Poser 2012. The reason I do this is because I can’t have both on one computer, and my Mac computer runs faster.
I’m surprised you can’t have both installed - I do, on Windows (and DS2 and DS3 and Poser 8 and PoserPro 2010)
Where do I save my converted files? It’s confusing because of how many runtimes there are.
To any Runtime you like - as long as Poser hass access to the Runtime used, and as long as the \Data folder with the asset files and the \Runtime\Textures with the images are accessible it should load OK.
How do I know if something needs a Geometry or not? I’m not a native Daz user, I’ve used Poser since version 4.
Any “thing” has geometry - files in the \Data folder - which will be converted into OBJ files on import. Material settings don’t.
I’m trying to make the Genesis Baby’s diaper work on Poser, but it always asks me for PMD files I cannot find. How do I fix this? Are they located somewhere?
Should I try using the support asset - morph? If yes, where do I find the saved files?
I don’t know the answer to the first part, but on the second no - you use File>Save as>Support Asset>Moprh in DS when saving a new morph (a new mesh manipulation, not a new setting for the existing morphs).
Hitomi’s dress converts but when loaded into Poser, it kind of explodes and looks like a hot air baloon streteched like gum. It is the only item of hers I am having a problem with, everything else for the Day Out set works fine.
Sorry there are so many questions, I have barely used DS!
That’s a known problem with some content - it happens when not all polygons are assigned to groups that match the Poser bones. DS doesn’t care, so it doesn’t cause issues, but Poser does need the geometry to belong to a proper group. Items with this issue will need an extra step of updating in order to make them ready for Poser - you can do it yourself with the Polygon Selection Tool in DS, then resaving the item, but unless you need it immediately I would wait for an update.
