    Save time and money with the Figure Setup Tools Bundle! This product bundle contains the Figure Setup Tools and the Advanced Figure Setup Tools at a great savings.

    The Figure Setup Tools for DAZ Studio will allow you to create a figure skeleton, edit joints, and even includes an exporter for Poser's .CR2 file format.

    Created by professionals to be used by professionals, the Advance Figure Setup Tools are strictly for serious content creators developing complex figures and accessories.

    See what DAZ 3D Published Artists are already saying about this amazing toolset:

    "Okay, let me say this and be perfectly clear, OMG, the figure setup tools ROCK! To think this has been sitting on my hard drive while I've been fighting with rigging to make deadlines for the last four+ months... dear heavens...Wow...Speechless..."
    -
    Lady Littlefox

    "I just tried Morph Loader Pro which allows creating JCM's on posed figures and all I have to say is Hallelujah!!!!! I can now make nice sharp shoulders on my clothing and not guesstimate on elbow bends or knee bends. Now I can do all my adjustment morphs directly in my modeler. Happy Days!"
    - WillDupre

    "As someone who often deals with 20+ tail sections on my original critters, and 5-10 neck sections, the 'one-click expandability' and IK enhancement is be a BIG time-saver for me."
    - Digital I

    "You know, I've been avoiding rigging because I detested it ... But WOW! WOW! WOW!, these tools are FANTASTIC!!!"
    - Deecey

    "I will be giving up Poser as a development tool for good. The rigging tools in DAZ Studio are much more intuitive and much easier to use. The CR2 exporter saves amazingly clean CR2's."
    - Guarie

    Note: This has been updated to work with DAZ Studio 3.


    Note: This product does NOT work in DAZ Studio 4. See note below about Content Creator Toolkit.

    What's Included and Features

    Includes
    • Skeleton Setup - A tool that allows you to define the hierarchy of a figure’s bones, their geometries, and the relationships between them.
      • Specify a skeleton’s geometries (notice plurality)
      • Create and modify parent/child relationships
      • Establish joint rotation orders individually, or all at once with multiple selection.
      • Identify which joint parameters to create; twist, bend, curve, etc
      • Establish welding for bone geometry boundaries; parent/child and other
      • Establish inverse kinematics (IK) chains; and weights
    • Joint Editor - A tool that allows manipulation of a figure’s Joint Parameters, along with the ability to create and/or remove bones.
      • Visually manipulate all Joint Parameters currently supported by DAZ Studio and Poser; without additional tweaking.
      • Visualize weighting of Joint Parameters in Points, Wireframe or Solid display modes; with the ability to customize display colors and opacity.
      • Viewport navigation in DAZ Studio compliments your workflow, making editing faster and easier than ever.
      • Viewport manipulators give faster, easier and more robust control of Joint Parameters.
      • Optionally limit matrix (joint spheres) rotations to 2 axis for compatibility with Poser; (DAZ Studio does not exhibit the same limitation with matrix decomposition, thereby avoiding the common “joint sphere popping” during manipulation and sometimes unpredictable results).
    • CR2 Exporter - An exporter that allows users and content developers alike to export figures to the Poser Character (.cr2) format.
      • Support of Extensible Parameter (ExP) technology
      • Option to collect referenced files
    • Property Editor - A tool designed for mass property attribute editing, as well as creation, deletion, grouping, ordering and linking.
      • Create properties
      • Mass delete properties
      • Mass edit property attributes; limit state/values, hidden state, etc
      • Mass property grouping; across multiple nodes
      • Mass ordering/sorting of properties; across multiple nodes
      • Move properties; to other nodes
      • Mass linking/unlinking of properties; expressional and direct
      • ERC Freeze - Allows a user to adjust property values (via Parameters tab or Presets/Poses) and link those properties to a controller; automatically calculating the scalar required to drive the properties to their current value when the controller is set to its current value (or 1 in the case of a 0 value)
      • Display of Property Hierarchies; both Top-Down and Bottom-Up views
      • Property selection; for scripting access
    • ExP Exporter - An exporter specifically designed to generate ExP product files through a visual interface. This tool greatly simplifies a very tedious and time-consuming process that had to be done by hand prior to this tool.
      • Provides visualization of the four ExP file types
      • Provides the ability to mass select file type options by type, node and name
      • Configurations can be saved for later [re]use.
      • Optionally embed deltas
      • Optionally generate INJ/REM source library files
      • Optionally generate INJ/REM user library files
    • Morph Loader Pro - A tool designed which allows users to quickly and easily add their own custom and third-party OBJ morphs to their objects.
      • Load morphs that span a figure’s group boundaries, in their entirety rather than individually, group by group
      • Limit morphs that span a figure’s group boundaries to specific groups; selected nodes.
      • Load vertex-only morphs onto static objects
      • Morphs can be ordered and loaded en masse, with each being uniquely configured.
      • Use the Reverse Deformations feature to subtract the affect of any currently applied geometry deformations, such as joint and/or morph modifiers.
      • Project and object configurations can be saved for later [re]use
      • Configuration settings include naming, property grouping, property linking and updating
      • Seamless integration with the DAZ Studio Hexagon Bridge

    Notes

    * Non ‘user properties’ are properties that exist by default in DAZ Studio; such as transform properties (rotation, translation, scale) and feature controlling properties (visible, selectable, bend, shadows, etc)
