DAZ 3D is pleased to announce the release of DSON Importer for Poser, version 1.0.0.13!

What is new in this version? Do I need to update my copy?

The primary purpose of the 1.0.0.13 update is to address some very specific issues that a relatively small percentage of users have encountered with the initial release. These particular issues have prevented the affected users from being able to enjoy the technological advancements of the award-winning Genesis figure platform, within Poser, due to missing files and/or a minor compatibility conflict.

1) For Windows users that installed the initial release but immediately encountered a message like the one below, upon launching Poser:

An error occurred importing addon dson :
ERROR: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

An error occurred importing addon dson :
ERROR: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

We have updated both of the Windows installers (32-bit and 64-bit) to include the appropriate Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package. Users who download this update will no longer need to install these packages separately from the DSON Importer itself.

2) For users who installed the initial release, but encountered an issue where the [embedded] Library in Poser 9/Pro 2012 becomes unresponsive after attempting to load DSON content, we have added an option to the Importer Preferences dialog (Main Menu Bar > Scripts > DSON Support > Importer Preferences…) that allows you to choose whether or not to “Show Progress On Load”. Users who experience the unresponsive Library can work around this issue by unchecking the new option* - until or unless a better solution can be identified and implemented.

*Note: The new option should be unchecked prior to making any attempts to load DSON content in order to avoid encountering the issue and having to close/relaunch Poser. Users who uncheck this option will no longer see a progress dialog while the DSON Importer is loading files, but they will continue to see the busy cursor.

3) One last change in this update, which may have a positive impact on a wider range of Poser Pro 2012** users, has to do with the conversion of DSON materials and the fact that the gamma setting on texture objects is now being correctly set to 1.0 on bump, displacement, normal maps, etc.

**Note: Poser 9 does not provide support for gamma correction. If you are a Poser 9 user that is not affected by one of the issues described in #1 or #2 above, you should wait for the next update. Poser 9 users who do apply this update will encounter a “SetGamma” error message when loading assets that apply images to a surface. This error message will not prevent you from being able to use the content, but it will prevent any gamma correction from being applied.

Has the Genesis Starter Essentials content been updated too?

No, the Genesis Starter Essentials content that is provided with the product has not been updated. There is no need to download it again if you already have the 1.6 version that came with the initial release.

How do I get the latest version?

If you have previously purchased DSON Importer for Poser, simply locate it within your Itemized Order History and then click the “Reset” link on its immediate right. This will cause new links for downloading the latest version to be added to your My Downloadable Products list.

If this is your first time downloading DSON Importer for Poser, simply follow this link, click the “add to cart” button on the page and then follow the checkout process.

Thanks! But if you’re using Poser 9 the installer still attempts to put it in the (non-existing but it’ll make one for you anyway) Poser Pro 2012 directory, so be sure to point it to the right place instead of the default location.

You’re gonna love this: the new update actually gave me all the problems other people had with the old one. Slow library, slow load/items not loading properly at all. Morph transfers incredibly slow or not applying at all. Script errors like this one:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File “C:\Users\Home\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\Runtime\libraries\Character\DSON

Conversions\Beowulf Pants_Genesis.py”, line 2, in <module>
  dson.dzdsonimporter.loadCompanionDSONFile( sys.argv[0] );
AttributeError: SetGamma


The pants came in at the wrong place, would not conform to Genesis and totally refused to accept any morphs. No way could I make them fit. Got the same error with the belt except it loaded in a bright yellow—not the correct materials apparently—but eventually after a considerable lag it conformed. Previously the outfit worked perfectly. Fortunately I had not deleted my old installer so I removed the new one and reverted to 1.0.0.9. Now everything works great ... for me at least. First time I had an update that broke everything and fixed nothing that I could see.

Byrdie - Please submit a bug report.  Let us know what content you were using, which Poser version, your install paths, etc…

Thanks!

I bought the Genesis Body Morph Resource Kit 1 as it was supposed to be dson compatable but there doesnt seem to be any way to use the morphs in poser.

I’m not seeing them either - please make a bug report on this.

The morphs seem to already to be in the model when you load them, select the whole body and look at the morphs on the control bars!

That’s what I was doing - they aren’t under the grouping they are in DS, and don’t seem to be in any other grouping either.

After being prompted to reset and reinstall I did and the morphs are there but slightly misplaced - look in Head>Female>Real World>Morph Kits and Torso>Female>Real World>Morph Kits underneath the main Actor group in the Parameters, instead of in Actor>Head>Female etc. and Actor>Upper Body>Torso etc.

Sure, where do I submit? Using Poser 9 on Win 7 Pro with all updates/service packs installed. My install path is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Smith Micro\Poser 9. The content was Uzilite’s Beowulf outfit for M4 which I converted to Genesis using the autofit in DazStudio 4.5.1.6 then saved as a .duf and Poser-Companioned the way it’s supposed to be. It worked perfectly in P9 with the old importer, “broke” with the new one, and now that I’ve reverted works perfectly again. Weird or what?

the old version is working for me so in view of the above problems I will hold off.

But while we are talking upgrades can I please put in an enhancement requewst?
When I import my pz3 into vue the genesis cage shows up.  Any fix for this would be really appreciated.
I have been told exporting the .obj file works in vue but I would rather not have to this for various reasons. Please see if this can be fixed.

Daz, please please PLEASE make the itemized order history searchable. Finding anything is a complete nightmare if you have more than 80 pages of past purchases like I do.

Also, may I assume that scaling is not fixed with this update? If not, I’ll hold out for that wink.

If you’re running Windows you could try this, it also has support for DSON updates:

DSON Check doesn’t work right now though, as the DSON page which it gets the data from is messed up:

My problem is similar to Verjigorm’s.  I have installed the Genesis Evolution Head and Body morphs, but I can’t find the morph dials in Poser.  I am using DSON Importer 1.0.0.13 (64-bit) with Poser Pro 2012 on Win7.  All the Genesis content is installed in
Users\Public\Public Documents\Poser Pro 2012 Content\Genesis Essentials and that’s the folder I’ve used to install the Genesis Evolution morphs.  Any suggestions?

Despite the condition of the store, the webpages really are messed up, I did manage to buy the two extravaganza bundles that went on sale this week… the Jade hair for genesis comes DSON compatable.
