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.

That is true.

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

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.

What department should I select for this?  Sales?

Dana

Yeah Sales would be what I would pick smile

Hello Admin,
I downloaded and installed DSON..it imports just fine, but the problem I am having is when you go to switch to different catagory..IE material, pose, etc. It will not load that libary it just sticks in the figures. is there a fix to this?

Which version of Poser? Also, are you switching back to your Poser Runtime Library or staying in the ones that came with this? If you aren’t switching to your Poser one, could it be there isn’t anything in those folders in the new Runtime? I know I am using Poser Pro 2012 and it is going between my runtime libraries fine but I dont have Poser 9 just 2012 Pro so I cant check the other. I know its working fine in 2012 though. Also could it possibly be lagging a little maybe?

Yes, M5 and V5 are not included in the Genesis Starter Essentials.

The base Genesis has a male, a female, and a kid none of them are M5 or M4 or V5 or V4 or any of the others you need the shapes for Genesis or in the case of V5 and M5 at least the base characters in order to have the shapes in Genesis.

Surprisingly this all worked first time for me. I installed D|S 4.5.1.6 then Genesis Starter Essentials 1.6 (to the DAZ Content Library) then the DSON Importer and companion files. I’m using PP 2012 SR3 64 Bit on Windows 7. I already had MS Visual C++ 2010 installed, so had the runtimes mentioned in a previous post.


Genesis imports fine into PP 2012 and renders. Well done, DAZ.  I’m speechless.


Well ... almost.


Now, a question. Although it wasn’t my intention to start re-downloading countless terrabytes of updated content from my unsearchable previous orders list, I did try a reset on Michael 5. Could somebody explain what the difference is between the Legacy and DSON Core files (e.g: “Michael 5 - Legacy - PC” and “Michael 5 - DSON Core - PC”).


Do I have to install both?


Do they both go to the DAZ Studio Content Library?


I would have expected just an updated Michael 5 installer plus the companion file (Michael 5 - Poser Companion - PC), but this has thrown me and I have no intention of installing any of these files into my perfectly working DAZ Studio configuration until I know what they are and what they will do.

The Legacy version is for those using DS 4.0 rather than 4.5—you don’t need it.

OK, that seems to make sense ... I suppose calling it “Michael 5 - DAZ 4.0 - PC” would have been a bit too logical :)
