I have given up on this DSON - Genesis thing.

Ever since the service pack upload SR3.1 my V4’s look better in Poser
and I am able to do almost everything I want with it.

Poser 9 and V4 are perfect for the time being.

And better for my health and mood than all the programming lessons one has to take (in a language that is not mine)
to get things working… besides the dson shop area still has 103 products (for a couple of days now) and no Shape of a Woman.. which would be the only reason to want Genesis anyway.. for me

Good luck to all.. who still try to make it all work..

Don’t know what ‘all the programming lessons one has to take’ are. I downloaded the 3 installers, ran the 3 installers, started Poser, went to the DAZ People folder in the figure library and loaded Genesis. No programmming lessons required. Genesis loaded just like V4 - except with all mophs already there, no V4-type morph injecting required.

Don’t assume everyone has had problems - or even that a significant propotion has. It is the nature of things that the people who have had problems post - because they are after help. While most of the people who don’t have problems have no reason to post. It can give a very misleading impression.

and no Shape of a Woman.. which would be the only reason to want Genesis anyway.. for me

Shape of a Woman is a V4 product, not Genesis.

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.

My questions:

Where do I save my converted files? It’s confusing because of how many runtimes there are.

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.

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?

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!

I can answer the last question or rather Wim can.  He told me this:-

Some clothes have a strange problem
You can load them OK, but when you conform them, they blow up

In that case, go the Poser Companion route. It is simple. Just go into DS4,
load a genesis, load the converted cloth, then select genesis and do a Save
As Wearable. Select the cloth and save. Then go to that saved thing in the
content library, select it and then right-click on the Content Library tab
and Select Poser Companion File. A dialog pops up and then BE SURE TO CHECK
THE CORRECT RUNTIME and save it (Select CR2)
I put it in bold, because I keep forgetting and can’t find it anymore
If you do this, you can drag the clothing onto the figure and then the
conform goes fine. It is just the separate conform which blows the cloth up

Thank you for your reply! I will go and try this. smile

If anybody has had problems with PP2012 becoming unresponsive when Genesis is loaded, go into your General Preferences and see if Multi-threaded Bending is checked. If it is, uncheck it. I had it checked and didn’t notice much when other figures were loaded as I have a quad core laptop. Since unchecking it I haven’t had any issues. (Touch wood!)

CHEERS!

people have got a workaround for the library thing.  It isn’t a problem on my mac anyway, but I have heard they use maybe the external library instead of embedded.  It’s in your poser preferences under iibrary I think.

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)

My questions:

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.

Having the same problem myself (Poser 9). I also bought the ‘Men of Character II’, installed them into my ‘Genesis’ folder, along with everything else that I have installed, and I just can’t see them anywhere.

Ehm - in DazStudio the Men of character II would be in
  Parameters Tab: “Actor : Head : Male : Real World”
  Shape Tab: “Head : Male : Real World”
I didn’t get to installing the whole fun (for redownloading and general PC cleaning reasons), but shouldn’t these morphs show up in Poser somewhere in the parameters tab? Maybe you have to select the head first?

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?

I’ve selected both head and body and still can’t find them anywhere.

I bought the Genesis Body Morph Resource Kit 1 as it was supposed to be dson compatable but there doesnt seem to be any way to use the morphs in poser.

Is there a possible bug where deleting an invisible conformed to genesis clothing item deletes or disables morphs from genesis?
