I'm finding that Cycles is seriously crippled in Poser. Some missing nodes and simple abilities that are available in Blender are not there in Poser's Cycles. That was the main impetus behind my buying the Cycles Encyclopedia, so I could better understand the shaders and what they're supposed to do and how they work. The key to all of them seem to be node groups and Cycles' color coding system which Poser doesn't use on it's nodes.
So while I can rebuild MOST of the shaders, I either have to leave some nodes out and hope the shader works anyway, or find a substitute that does the same thing or close to it.
Hmm, something went horribly wrong. I rebult a couple of the shader s from Chocofur in Poser. But as I said, Cycles is somewhat crippled in Poser by the lack of several nodes. So I tried substituting the HSV node for the RGB Curves node. Then made the Diffuse color input red. So naturally it came out green.
