*waves to Chuck*
Chuck will do what he's best at, which is Poser for now. It's either Poser, or have the Elephant shelved for perhaps more years to come.
This move doesn't mean a Studio version won't be coming, but no promises to if and when. Unless we can scare up another Studio rigger, there is only so much Paul can take on, and we have him buried with several projects.
Wow, I didn't say all that. Not even close. I said that our friend Chuck is rigging our Elephant in Poser, and that "some" animals will be offered in one format in the future in order to get that product to market.I'm really disappointed to hear that you are dropping DS support for the rest of the animals or is this just for the elephant?
There was someone asking about a Dog over in the Daz forums I was going to send them here but is there any point?
Yes, you can sort of transfer rigging from Poser to DS. I'm old school, I start by do my rigging the way it's done forever in Poser. Once I get the standard (aka legacy rigging) working right, I then split the project; convert to the legacy to Poser weight-mapping and import the legacy into DS and convert to Tri-Ax. The legacy rigging gives a solid start on both sides and from there I simply adjust the Weight-mapping where needed in Poser and DS..Can't the bone rig itself be brought into DAZ Studio and converted to what ever weight mapping you want? I mean a cr2 opens up in DAZ Studio just fine and can be converted to TriAx and then just the weight maps have to be tweaked.
