I was having problems with the new DSON Importer in Poser Pro 2012 but finally managed to get it to work so thought I’d post a few comments for anyone else having the same problem.
I initially looked though this Forum and couldn’t find anything specific so opened a case with Tech Support (https://helpdaz.zendesk.com/tickets/115278). They got back the next day but basically just sent me back here!
So, after looking through 40+ pages and still not finding any help, I did a bit more fiddling and FINALLY got it to work.
The limited DSON Importer_user_guide is misleading and as it’s stated as a WIP, perhaps these comments will get appended.
First off, the Writable Runtime Folder entry for the Importer Preferences the DSON Support item in the Scripts Tab in Poser is blank upon initial install. Silly me, I thought that this would be the DAZ runtime folder. No,no, no. This needs to be the Poser Runtime folder. In my case that’s simply: D:/Poser Pro 2012 and NOT the D:\Poser Pro 2012\Runtime although that might work as well.
Secondly, you need to MANUALLY add the DAZ library. This IS the Daz runtime folder. In my case that’s: D:\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\Runtime. Contrary to what is shown in the DSON Importer_user_guide, this ends up getting added to the Poser Library as My Library and NOT Genesis Essentials as shown, and the Poser interface doesn’t allow you to rename it.
So, once I got those things straightened out is seems to work pretty well. I’ve only had a short time to play around with it and don’t have that much DAZ content so time will tell if there are other issues.
Your mileage may vary.
