Okay so after loading up V4 into Blender and manually adding all the nodes needed to get her textures to work in Blender I have to say I am really looking forward to an easier way to load the materials! :)



My question is, will these material importer only for the Blender Internal render engine or the new Cycles material system?  Or is that on the drawing board?

Yeah, that would be cool, but it would probably be best for any BI to Cycles conversion to be done by another developer for Blender, so that all BI texured objects and not just those that come through the Poser - Blender converter can be converted.

That sounds sensible to me.

Reddog9 great job on the poser tools.


 


could you also add an option where we can import into blender figures that are already posed?  right now we have to export and then import into blender. could this be added?


 


thanks

Attached Link: Poser Tools Update

The new directory Browser is included.  All of the tools are now grouped together under the ‘Scene’ region.



The browser allows you to set quick links for the Props, Character & Pose directories.

At this time, I've been testing / working with Blender 2.61.   Will work on updating what I have with 2.63 +.  It's almost hard to keep up with all of the Blender updates.

I've followed these instructions:







  • Unzip the compressed file into your Blender/Scripts/Addons folder.

  • Start Blender.

  • Open the User Preference Window and select Addons.

  • Check the box to enable 'Poser Tools'.






However, I had to actually go to Install Addon... the Poser Tools 2 thingie didn't show up in the list until then even though I'd unzipped to the addons folder and closed and re-opened Blender. And it will not let me make it active (Enable Addon).


Blender 2.63 Final, Linux Ubuntu 12.04, 32-bit.

Hi Robyn..  You'll have to bare with me.. I'll be working on Linux compatibility over the next month.  It usually takes a little bit to account for the different directory listing formats of Linux.

Hi I've been looking for a program to render my poser scenes in vray or luxrender because I haven't been able to figure it out directly in poser and I came across this(but that's another problem entirely).  My problem is I get a error message that says "There is no disk in the drive.  Please insert a disk into drive D:." whenever I try to enable Poser Tools.

THIS IS BRILLIANT!!!  (caps intended, since I was shouting)


I loaded Blender 2.61, loaded the add-on, saved as default.  Loaded V4, added Lana Elite Material, render and BAM!  V4 rendered via Blender.  Never been this easy!


I did try making a new CR2 from a posed V4, and she still comes in as default Pose.


Is the Pose section of the directory browser for figure poses, like posing V4? 


With conforming clothes following the poses, are you thinking more of supporting only  dynamic clothes saved as figures, or are you going to try and tackle that?


...but again, great work so far!!!!


Now that I am reloaded on W7/64 with Blender 2.61, I can also help test things if you like.

Rendering in 2.63 with Cycles and - hopefully - soon to come new SSS materials is definitely something to look forward to!

i'm pleased with the update of your great script !!! i can't wait for, sorry  


i know it's a hard work to keep up with all the updates of blender....


i think it's great, that you are doing this effort....and it's free !!!


thank you very much !!!!


btw, i can activate your script in the newest version of blender and it works, but not at 100 %....


activating the script is possible only if i unzip first and then copy to the addon-folder of blender......it doesn't work if i install the script by using the "install addon"-button in the user-preferences.... 


i can load a figure, though an error appears.....but the figur load in a wrong axis and too small.....also it's not possible to load a material....


i'm working on windows 7 64 bit


greetings


kali

All this talk of Octane, Cuda and fast renders got you anxious for a little Cycles-ing?

it can be used at the mo' LaurieA, just have a bit of fiddling to do in blender(last time I tried it I had to parent to armature (rotate) and I think had to reconnect all the image maps)


there is a script for DS that exports the full scene as .obj and prepares the mats for cycles(did have to tweak the images cos they was set to normal mapping instead of uv, but that could have been my fault lol). That scene.obj will open in octane ready to go, ok so I know your not a DS user but I think there is a script for poser that exports a full scene


 


ps Octane is so fast fast it makes your eyes water rofl

heddheld, where can I find that DS script you mention?  Also, does the script reset the pose?  This was a hassle from exporting from DS I ran into before.


I use DS as my conduit to Reality, at least until November.

all the details there, dont use DS often an had a job to find the script after loading but it was under uncategorized


it just makes one object from the whole scene, pose cloth everything and all the mats loaded fine, for cycles I had to change all the maps from normal to uv mapping, but that mighta been my fault and for octane the only real prob was the eyes (all black) but Face-off says to change something for the eyes in his thread on octane


have fun

Materials.


One can hope the DS and Poser and Blender and Octane and LuxRender and-and-and would/could/might/SHOULD, to some degree, agree on an open shading language... they could call it "Open Shading Language".


Oh wait, that name's been taken.


Well, maybe they could adopt it?

True. Only sun is supported. But you can use the environment to light your *outdoor* scene quite effectively.
