mcjObjGroupByProximityUI




Introduction



This is a Daz Studio script "front end" , a 'User Interface' 

for the Windows/DOS application mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe found here: mcjobjgroupbyproximity.exe

Using this, you don't have to learn how to write a DOS command-line / batch file

you simply select the files you want to process and click the run button

Installation



The zip package is found at the bottom of this page

unzip it in your daz content folder, typically 


C:\Program Files\DAZ\Studio\content\ 
or

C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ\Studio\content\


once installed, it will appear in your content library, under Studio / Scripts / mcasual 


or

C:\Users\Public\Documents\My DAZ 3D Library\


once installed, it will appear in your content library, under My DAZ 3D Library / Scripts / mcasual
 





Use


The 'reference obj' is typically the .obj of a valid Poser-compatible figure.

If this .obj file was rather created by exporting it from Daz Studio, it must be

scaled the same way your 'source obj' is scaled, i.e. 'poser units, 1 unit = 8 ft'

Note: this .obj file is usually copyrighted and should not be redistributed.



The 'source obj' is typically a new clothing item meant to be worn by the reference.

mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe will group each facet of this .obj according to the

proximity of that facet to the groups in the 'reference obj'.



The 'output obj' is the result of that process, which will be written to disk

So you must specify a folder/location for which you have write-privileges

for example: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents


Note that mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe  will refuse to over-write files

so if you want to re-use a given obj filename, you have to delete or move the 

previous version


For all of this to work, of course, you need to download mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe

and install it somewhere on your PC's disks. Then use the 'browse...' button

in the section titled 'Location of the application mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe'



Use the Run button to launch mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe



If you use the 'Create .bat only' button, mcjObjGroupByProximity.exewill not be launched,

instead, a batch file (.bat) will be created in the same folder as your 'Output obj'

Later on you can run this batch file by double-left-clicking on it

this in turn will launch mcjObjGroupByProximity.exe
