Script: Create Morphs from Poser PMD Files

EsemwyEsemwy Posts: 575

I've read a lot of discussion on this, having purchased P.I.C.K. SciFi on Rendo, and subsequently losing all the morphs when bringing the props into DS. Maybe my google-fu was off, but I couldn't find a working solution. I did, however find a number of partial solutions and a lot of good information.

I present, therefore, a true franken-script. With guidance from a Python script found on shareg, information in a thread started by @algovincian here on the forums, and a library found by extensive google-fu, I've produced "PoserPMDLoader." The script does no verification to ensure that it's being used on the correct prop, and I've only tested it with P.I.C.K. SciFi props, so consider yourself warned.

Usage:

  • Load or import your prop/figure into Studio
  • Launch "PoserPMDLoader"
  • Select the corresponding PMD file from the Open File dialog
  • Enjoy your new morphs

Installation:

  • Download the files linked below
  • Name them "PoserPMDLoader.dsa" and ""PoserPMDLoader.png" respectively
  • Copy them to your content library under Scripts.

    Thank you, Esemwy. I'm certain I will find a good use for this from time to time.

    ah, am i glad i finally found you/this thread! i couldn't remember where i had your pmd loader from as i wrote it...

    since i can't write double posts, do you mind looking at this? https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/543046/pmd-loader-by-esemwy#latest

    it's about this: https://www.renderosity.com/forums/threads/2962136/wish-sabertooth-fangs-for-hivewire-tiger#msg4433025

    EDIT: i think it doesn't work because i don't have the proper tiger morph in the first place, i had misunderstood how essential it was. so i guess that's the problem. sorry.

    @manekiNeko your theory sounds reasonabld, but I heard from one persone a while back that the script had stopped working under a newer version of Studio. For me, the script worked when I needed it, but it's entirely possible that it will work for no other purpose than my initial need without some modifications.

    well, i have quite an "old" version of studio - 4.11, might even have been the one back in 2018 as you wrote the script. as 4.12 came out it was buggy for a while, so i waited. then i dunno, real life and stuff, i missed 4.13+14. and then came 4.15, with issues for ppl that have old machines, and i was doomed. so yeah, still on 4.11.

    as to the issue with this free morph, we had quite an unpleasant rendo forum exchange with the person who made the morph, who pretty much threw in my face repeatedly the fact that i hadn't read "for the hw tiger, tiger morph needed"... but at least i know now that essentially it's not supposed to work without the tiger. i expected it would just be applicable to the big cat alone but would look very ugly/deformed (it was just a curiosity test i made), so i'd still have to wait until i purchase the required tiger morph. as for pmd, maybe then it wouldn't work at all, or absolutely properly. who knows. meanwhile, i have given up on that freebie after this comment exchange, i can't use it without having an unpleasant feeling now anyways, which is not the point of fun 3d rendering :/ - i hope cwrw will create a real DS compatible sabertooth tiger at some point ^^ - or i'll get one of AM's big toothy felines here, as half of his menagerie is wishlisted anyways (just waiting to get rich, lol)

    thanks anyways for creating this script in the 1st place ^^
