K I wanted to do an actual render showing Genesis in action in Poser

The pose, believe it or not, is one I did ages ago for V4. Look how nicely it worked with Genesis!

I have a question about the Genesis child..I noticed that there are not any clothing items sold for it?? Does it use K4 clothing and character textures and morphs? Not familiar with Genesis so I dont have a clue..raspberry

If DAZ did a Genesis version of the Kids 4 then yes I believe..though I can’t recall if they did? If not though, any clothes will fit. Pages back my Genesis Kid render was wearing M4 clothing smile

Unfortunately not.  I started hunting through the menus to try and find a way to start it on my own, too, but I’m coming up short.  Ah… I found it on my Start menu.  Yay! Started DAZ Content Manager Service, saw no change, restarted DS4.5… and still nothing there.

Have I achieved “most needy CS headache” status yet? raspberry

Edit:  It does appear to be running in Task Manager, at least…

LOL You are fine.  Re-import your metadata once you verify it is running.  (You can check your running Services in Task Manager).  Once it is all reimported you should be fine.

Right-Click Content Library (Tab)
Select Content DB Maintenance
Check the Reimport Metadata box
Hit Accept and let it reimport. 
Then recheck your Smart Content pane.

Would a DS4Pro savvy person explain to us Poser-ites how to take an already rigged piece of clothing (let’s say for V4) and get it all set up for use on Genesis in Poser using DSON?  Links to tutorials would be handy or some instructions.  I keep hearing…“oh just open it and save it in DS4”.  Uh, ok. I have no idea what that means.

Remember, those of us who are Poser-only know nada about DS4 & need hand-holding.
(BTW, this whole Genesis-to-Poser thing is AWESOME - thanks daz!!)

Hi Ann! smile
OK thanks for your reply..I was just wondering what clothing would fit the basic child and I cannot find any in the store..
HOWEVER..I did load the Town and Country jean that was made for adult and had it conform to the Basic Child and it automatically fit to him! YAY! Thanks again for your help and all you do! smile

This should walk you through what you are asking:

All genesis clothing works on all genesis shapes for the most part.  If you buy a dress for genesis it should work for the genesis child shape.  Same for the textures.

V4 clothing would run through Auto-Fit in DS 4.5. (It will pop up for you)  Testing last night at home I had success with this.  Once it is Auto-Fit, then follow the Conversion Doc Ann linked you to.  smile

Of course most textures for the genesis might have too much makeup on for a child.  In Studio you can swap uv so you can use V4 maps, m4 maps with genesis and I think k4 map but I have never actually tried that.  I guess that works in poser as well.  I mostly use Carrara so I am not too familiar with poser

sorry I can’t type today

First, Thank you Daz, sorry for all the cr@p I gave you on getting Genesis for Poser.

Now I had a problem now installing, the DSON_Importer_for_Poser_1.0.0.9_Mac64 went in with no problem. But 14812_GenesisStarterEssentials_1.6_trx & 14812_GenesisStarterEssentialsPoserCF_1.1_dpc gets errors:

There has been an error.
Error running osascript -e “POSIX path of (path to applications folder from user domain)” : 2012-10-12 08:33:58.914 osascript[83021:60b] Error loading /Library/ScriptingAdditions/QXPScriptingAdditions.osax/Contents/MacOS/QXPScriptingAdditions:  dlopen(/Library/ScriptingAdditions/QXPScriptingAdditions.osax/Contents/MacOS/QXPScriptingAdditions, 262): no suitable image found.  Did find:
/Library/ScriptingAdditions/QXPScriptingAdditions.osax/Contents/MacOS/QXPScriptingAdditions: no matching architecture in universal wrapper
osascript: OpenScripting.framework - scripting addition “/Library/ScriptingAdditions/QXPScriptingAdditions.osax” declares no loadable handlers.
15:59: execution error: Folder does not exist, and you don’t have access privileges to create it. (-5000)

Im running on a Mac OS X 10.6.8

ANy one know what to do?

No one? :(

I am running 10.6.8 and I am not getting those errors. (Poser 2012 SR3.1)  I installed to a temp file on the desktop & then moved the content to my “! Genesis” folder in my “Additional Runtimes” folder.  I got the grey golem running in Poser - now I need to figure out what to do with it.

Did you install the DSON importer first?  The error message looks like the program is looking for something in the add on scripts that the DSON importer installs.

I think it is a permissions problem on my mac, i have always had problems with the Daz installers working. so I just installed them on my other computer them brought them over and manually placed the files. So its nothing with just this instal, its all installs :(

Ok.  Just to show I am not -entirely- crazy, let me paint a story with pictures.

I’m so sorry for all of the trouble. :/  It’s got to be something stupidly simple at this point.
