I’m looking forward to seeing how this works out (hopefully Daz won’t have to call the Orkin Man) though after all the disappointments over the last year I’ll take a wait and see position.

One question - forgive me if it’s been asked (my eyes started to blur after the 9th page):

If I open a figure file in Studio and convert it for export would I then be able to open it in Poser?  I ask this since I bought a figure that said it was compatible with poser (of course it wasn’t) and isn’t on the DSON list.

You should—what is it, and is it in .duf format?

I have installed the plugin in PP2012 SR-3.1 x64, and the Python scripts work without errors, but Genesis and all contents loaded from that runtime leave me with an empty scene. Poser claims the figure has been loaded and the name shows at the top, but I see no figure. I have installed the “Genesis Starter Essential for Poser”, adding it as an external runtime in Poser. I have also installed the DS package. I don’t get any errors when I load Genesis (or anything else from that runtime), but there is nothing on the scene.

I have followed the tutorials by the book, but I suspect this has something to do with *where* I have to install the “starter essential” files. The Poser version was installed at an external runtime, and then linked to Poser. 

I need some help here.

What is the path to the external runtime?

No time to go through 19 pages right now.  Sorry…

I got M5 and V5 on a disc from 3D Artist magazine.  Is there something that I need to do to get them updated?  that’s all I got on the disc I think.  I bought the Evolution morphs bundle here, and other things.

Dana

Still waiting on an answer to that, too, Dana.  I went and tracked down my disc so I was 100% sure, but I’ve got V4/M4 shapes for Genesis from an ImagineFX DVD.  I’m wondering if anything was changed/updated, or if they’re just in the category because they’re something we can use with the Importer.

You may need to send in an support ticket so they can put the pack in your account etc (may have to show proof of purchase of that magazine (though not positive what they will ask for exactly) but I am fairly certain in the past that support has managed it so you could get the updates etc if you contact them.

Somebody might want to fix the M5 Pro Bundle. I’ve reset my downloads and found there are now two Mac copies of the Benjamin for M5 Poser Companion file but no PC version of same. Could be problematic, that.

New resets/downloads for that product should be fixed now. You may still see two items titled “Benjamin for M5 - Poser Companion - Mac” but one of them should actually provide the PC (13885_BenjaminM5PoserCF_1.3_dpc.exe) version. I’ll mention it to Web in the morning, to see what can be done to correct the mislabeled item.

No just make a new runtime in Poser Pro 2012 and direct it the the runtime in the Daz content folder make sure you installed the 14812_GenesisStarterEssentialsPoserCF_1.6_dpc there to

Well, thanks for trying to help but its still coming up invisible.

It looks like all the structure is in there that is needed like the data folders and whatnot, it’s just not connecting here.  What’s weird is that it is caching a DSON folder with generated geometry and pmd files and looking at the .obj it IS genesis.  Just doesn’t show up in Poser.

So, no PP2010? :( Well fierfek!

Ah well… I downloaded the files anyway. I need a new 1T drive before I can even think of PP2012…or any rendering

The plugin depends on the new Add-on framework that Smith Micro and I designed for Reality 3 for Poser. This framework was released in the SR3 of Poser 2012. Prior the introduction of the add-on framework there was no support for auto-loading of plugins and no support for many “hooks” in the Poser scene. For example, the new add-on framework notifies a registered plug-in when an object is added, renamed or removed. This is used by the DSON plugin to trigger the loader for the .duf files. So, there is really no way to make this happening for previous versions of Poser because the hookups are simply not there.

Hope this helps

So this is why all the stuff that had been 70% off and was supposed to be on sale until 12th has been taken off sale.

Hmm… some things that I’m already missing, Bad Guy for Genesis, David Elite for M5, M5 Elite Hair…

I really should find a better way keep track of all my genesis purchases.

Something else, as to why Poser 9 and Poser Pro 2012 is required. Previous versions of Poser do not support any kind of weight mapping. Genesis is weight mapped.
