I would like to ask 2 questions:

1. When I’m buying the v4 Shape for Genesis will I can use V4 Poser content on it? Especially clothing?
2. Is ther a possibility to use V4 Facemorphs on Genesis?

You don’t need the V4 shape for Genesis to get V4 clothing to fit Genesis, the Autofit plugin does that anyway, assuming that you are using DAZ Studio.

You would need to use the GenX plugin for DS4 AND the V4 shape for Genesis to transfer character morphs.

Amethyst, if you install DS 4.5.1.6 which was just released, you can use it to update any Genesis product to work with the DSON Importer for Poser

Thanks, I’ve already done that. I’ve converted things to the DUF format and then to the DSON format and everything works like a dream. Fantastic work!

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

Credits:
Moon Gate by Jack Tomalin
DAZ Wyvern 2.0
Magna Hart by Bobbie25
The lovely Genesis sporting Victoria 5
Erato hair by Plus3D and Mairy
Some slight postwork in PS CS6 - Extra flames from a photo

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

Gorgous render! and in such a short amount of time wink

TY sweetie! And lol well it did take a couple hours. But no longer than it would take to do an image of native Poser content smile

You a master smile For me few hours is just setting up a scene smile
But true.. there is not much difficulty of uing genesis in poser, one everything is on it’s place all is going smoothly smile

Now if I will run clothing for v4 in DS trought autofit wil I be able to convert them for poser use for genesis? I thought someone mention it is possible.
And autofit transfroms now movement morphs?

I must be missing something, because I do not see how to change the UV mapping on Genesis in Poser.

Or, perhaps, do I need to update all of my Michael 5 textures to get new files that will apply the correct UV mapping for me?

Apologies if this was covered somewhere, 35 pages is just a little much to try to read and comprehend all at once.

You need to apply a .duf materials preset - I have one saved that switches to M4, I’ll try making a set of presets that do nothing but switch UV sets and put them up later but for now just apply one of the Sample map settings to the figure and then the texture set you want to use.

Hi, thanks, I noticed that most of the other things in the bundle have a “poser companion” file, but the Gens do not. I’m thinking they are not getting imported to Poser, just sitting in Daz studio.

Lokks like you’ll have to wait for either DAZ or some kind DS user to get round to making the Poser support files for the gens (or try them out in DS). When the Posef support files are done and installed, you should find the gens figure in your Poser library alongside the Genesis figure.

Iff you have the item in .duf format you can manually create the companion files, though I would suggest doing it for a lot of items.

1. Place the .duf file and the thumbnail in the Poser library folder you wish to use.

2. rename the thumbnail to remove the .duf - figure.duf.png becomes figure.png

3. make a copy of one of the .py files and place it in the folder with the .duf file

4. rename the .py file to match the the .duf file - e.g. figure.py

5. create or copy a CR2 (or whatever type is required) file to match the .duf file - e.g. figure.cr2

6. edit the cr2 so it consists of

{
 version
 {
  number 9
 }
 runPythonScript 
"yourfilename.py"

and that should be it. This won’t work if you have only .dsf files in the user folder, though.

Just spotted this in my DSON search results:

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/poke-away

That looks very useful, but, there’s no mention of DSON in the blurb, so does that mean it still needs converting!?

That DSON list is starting to get confusing, particularly when things like that are included which don’t appear to have been converted.

CHEERS!

Poke-away is rather an old product -when DS4 first came out, as a beta, it wasn’t possible to hide body parts and the morphs were an alternative. However, they fixed that quickly (before the official release). Fortunately, since these are just morphs they don’t need .duf files and do seem to work in the current version with the importer - they just appear as a group of morphs at the bottom of the list. You can also hid body parts by setting their Subdivision Exclude parameter to 1. In the image I set the collar’s SubD exclude to 1 and applied the X-Away Left arm morph, so you can see both working in PP2012.

um I have poser 9 & I dont see that option when I open up Edit > General Preferences > Library

Poser 9 does not have that option. So this bypass won’t work for P9

That is correct, it won’t work on P9, only in 2012 (sorry I should have mentioned that *blush*), though they are working on an update for this. They got it troubleshooted yesterday so are now working out the best way to resolve the issue that seems to be causing it.

Just a quickie. Converted the Morphing Fantasy Dress and Gregoria Hair to duf and then dson and used a V4 texture. All seems to work very well.

I’ve just added the DS library to Poser and it seems that other morphs have also loaded into Genesis including custom ones I made for DS4. Is this correct or am I dreaming?

Thanks Richard, but I don’t think what you suggested works. Tried that already.

Sounds like I should be able to do this myself with the tools provided though, no? Make a preset in studio that just changes the UV’s? Convert that over? Or just convert an existing M5 preset over, perhaps?

It feels a little like a dream wink

Not only Genesis in Poser. But also a lot of other DAZ only content, like Optitex dynamic clothing. Best plugin ever if you ask me, especially if you use both programs.

I just got this.  IN my downloads I have a WHOLE bunch of items.  They seem to be duplicates…

I’m not sure if there is any difference.  They seem to have the same names…

I get duplicates in my downloads all the time since the store change-over. It’s NOT just simply the PC and Mac files showing in the list simultaneously (God, please, give me an option to filter out the Mac files), but actual duplicate listings for the same files. It seems to happen mostly with the $1.99 PC Club items.

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

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

You also need SR3 for your Poser version.

What is “SR3 for your Poser version”??

OK. I have two folders on my external hard drive. One is Poser 9 (where I put everything to work), and the other one is, Poser 9 Content. I use to keep it inside of the Poser 9 folder, but with setting up Genesis in Poser 9, I had to move it on the outside of Poser 9 folder. Now Genesis works for me. My question is:  Where do I load my items to? The Poser 9 folder, or the Poser 9 Content folder?  Help!!!
I’m so confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
