Purpose

This script for daz studio 4 lets you convert a collection of .duf pose files into .pz2 Poser pose files



History

May 10th 2016 7:58am - Version 7  -     There was a bug in the "get bone list from duf" option ( the word 'nones' instead of 'bones' at line 345 )

April 28th 1:31 PM Version 6 you can disable the export of the 3 rotation and 3 translation channels for the root node and the hip node

April 28th 2:33 AM Version 5 option to get the list of bones from the ( non-compressed ) .duf file and pz2-export only those. WebHelp button. User interface state saved restored upon exis/start

April 27th 2016, 1:29 AM Version 4 - option to write jpg copies of the 3DViewport for each pose 

APR 26, 2016, 3:26 PM Version 3 using contentManager instead of importManager, export folder can be different from import folder

April 25th 2016 11:33PM version 2 - Rotations now in the pz2 files, thumbnail filenames poser compatible, removed the extraneous closing bracket at the bottom of the pz2 which caused Poser to complain

April 25th 2016 4 am version 1





Installation

The zip package is found at the bottom of this page

unzip it in your daz content folder, 


typically :

C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library


once installed, it will appear in your content library, under 


My Library / Scripts / mcasual 


Starting with Windows 7 if you right click on the downloaded zip file


and select the [Extract All ....] pop-up menu item

you simply browse up to your Daz Studio Content Folder

and the files will fall in the proper folder 


Use

Select a figure, usually in the Scene Tab
Run the script

Click the 'Go' button

browse up to the folder containing your .duf pose files
and optionally, the matching thumbnail pictures ( ex: mypose.duf mypose.duf.png )
note that all the .duf files in that folder will be processed !!!
you should see the figure on-screen go through all the poses for each .duf pose file
the .pz2 files will be created in the same folder as the .duf files
if present, the thumbnail images will be duplicated and renamed from .duf.png to .pz2.png
note: the script will overwrite the .pz2 files if they already exist in that folder, no mercy
but the .duf files are safe

Improvements



New in version 5

version 5 has a checkbox titled "Get bone from duf"
when you enable this option, the script will inspect the .duf file content
and build a list of the bones targeted by this .duf pose file.
Then during the pz2 export, only bones from that list get their pose exported

New in version 6
version 6 has twelve checkboxes which lets you disable the export of the rotation and translation channels
for the root ( figure ) and the hip nodes.
