I’m being dumb here.

For those of us with a DS4 My Library, to use DSON stuff in Poser, can we just hook Poser into the DS4 My Library and install the poser companion files into the DS4 My Library?  Or are we supposed to install the specific DSON stuff for Poser either in an existing Runtime, or a completely separate folder?

If we can just use our normal My Library, will the Poser companion files show up when using DS4? Will Poser only show the DSON files for which there are companion files and ignore all the .daz scenes, .dsa scripts and whatnot?

Here are the docs for you.

DSON Importer Documentation

Kat, did you write that documentation? If so, I really like your style.

Thank you for this, especially I thank you for making the DSON free. I’m going to give it a go just as soon as everything downloads. If I like what I see (i.e. how well Genesis looks and works in Poser), I will rejoin the Platinum Club and grab some of those outfits that I liked but was unable to make use of before. smile

Question: I did buy a few Genesis things just in case this day came like Anubis and a couple RawArt sets. Those are not in the DSON category yet but you mentioned earlier in the thread that “an action to convert files for use in the DSON Importer for Poser has been added to DAZ Studio version 4.5.1.6” So can I just do that instead of waiting for new downloads for those products?

I second everything LizzieP said, including the questions. :D

We also have documentation on converting content as well….

Do Genesis products need to be installed into my main Poser Runtime?  I only have a 120gb SSD for my main drive and I dunno t hat I wanna clog it up with extra stuff….

No, but they do need to be in a folder that you have mapped as a Poser library - with the Data folder next to the Runtime folder. It also needs a writable folder, not one that the OS protects, as it creates files.

Look here : http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/dson_importer/poser/userguide/dson_content_conversion/start
For information on converting content we have not yet converted.  It may need some adjustment, so if you are not comfortable doing that, you will want to wait.  If you are, I know Poser has some great tools to help, and then you don’t need to wait for us!

Keep in mind this is an importer… all of your content development still needs to be done in DS until Poser natively supports the format.

Gotcha, so if I save a character that uses GenX morphs, do you know if it import fully?

Hi.  Very excited about this, but it doesn’t seem to work (at least for me.)  I’m running Poser Pro 2012 on Win7 64-bit.  I installed the DSON importer, then the Genesis Files, then the Genesis for Poser files.

When I launch Poser I am getting the following error in a “mainWacros” window:

>>>>>An errror occurred importing addon dson :
ERROR: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

An errror occurred importing addon dson :
ERROR: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.<<<<

Also, when trying to use an item under the DSON Scripts menu, I get the following ...

>>>>>>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File “C:\Graphics\Poser Pro 2012\Runtime\Python\poserScripts\ScriptsMenu\DSON Support\Importer Preferences….py”, line 2, in <module>
  import dson;
  File “C:\Graphics\Poser Pro 2012\Runtime\Python\addons\dson\__init__.py”, line 3, in <module>
  import dson.dzdsonimporter
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
<<<<<<<

It appears the module is not being found.  Is there a specific directory that the DSON Importer is supposed to be installed to?

Thanks,
Tim

This is so great! I installed the Importer and the Essentials..and I restarted Poser but I do not see how to import items into Poser? How does it work? I chose to look at the readme file after the installation of importer but a Daz Documentation Center PAGE NOT FOUND error came up..so I cannot read how to use it. Anyone know where there are instructions for using this? Thanks in advance! smile

You should see the content in your Poser library - when you double-click a file it runs a Python script which launches the importer. You also should find some utilities in the Scripts>DSON Importer menu, but you don’t need to do anything new for the actual import.

You can install to any writable directory, including your DS4 “My Library”.  smile  They just need to be added to Poser in the usual manner using the + Add feature.

Any idea if GenX will updated to work with the poser version?

GenX morphs should load fine - they just get added to the Genesis Data folder like any other morph.

Thank you! I’m a content creator myself in Poser so I should be able to handle it. :D Now I’ve got a lot of reading and downloading to do!

Make sure you downloaded the correct 32 or 64bit version.  If you are in Poser 9, install to that directory.  The DSON Importer Documentation covers exactly what should go where.  smile
