Subject: Snarly's scripts and Poser 12


Snarlygribbly ( ) posted Thu, 11 June 2020 at 6:16 AM · edited Sun, 28 November 2021 at 2:07 PM

Some of you will have seen the blog post drawing your attention to the changes in Poser Python expected in Poser 12. You may be worried that some of your scripts will stop working.

This is just to let you know that I shall be making sure that all of my scripts will work in Poser 12, and they will remain free (of course).

Additionally, it may be possible for me to update my pre-Poser 11 scripts to work with Superfly too. I can't promise that, but it is an aspiration. Time is the enemy, but it is something I'd like to do.

it may also be possible to update some of Dimension 3D's scripts so that they remain usable in Poser 12. If this happens, it will be with the co-operation of Renderosity and D3D's estate, and D3D's estate will be the financial beneficiary of the exercise.

Cheers, Snarly

For example, it has been found that the anisotropic setting was not working correctly in P12 Superfly, something that was corrected in the latest builds. I also believe that the specular node was not working as it should since P11 for Superfly, another feature that was actually broken for a long time and recently corrected. HDR background projection was broken in one of the builds, I was one of the first to report the problem. A good number of these problems have been posted in the forum and subsequently reported to the techs.

There was also an issue reported by me where, in early Poser 12, any Subsurface Scattering connected to an image was rendering green. Corrected.

Also a bug that Bagginsbill found by accident when trying to help me some time ago, in P11, that when you have the exact same value for two of the RGB channels in PhysicalSurface root's subsurface scattering values, it renders as if it were black. I don't think that one was ever addressed, but haven't tested it - a lot of Superfly issues have been corrected in the newest versions of P12.

I've got some great news to share, Snarly's scripts are ready to be shared! You'll find them all here at poser.cobrablade.net, the new Poser 12 ones as well as his classic scripts for anyone still using earlier versions of Poser!

EZSkin for Poser 12 is still being worked on by Snarly, but even now will save anyone having to set up their scene in Poser 11 then re-opening it up in 12 just to still have access to the wonder script.

So, am futzing with EZSkin. It seems that at least with the skins of V4 and M4 that I tired so far, the lip definitions need to be manually changed to match the skin; otherwise there is a rather noticeable sharp delineation around and the colors, especially with M4, are just...not right.. Once that is updated, they look great; but so far I couldn't use the out of the box option alone (much like with the other skin script I tried, some values MUST be played with).

Example of V4 (with EZ Dome, one background drop and one light): testezp12.jpg


Rhia474 ( ) posted Sat, 19 June 2021 at 10:20 AM

M4 (after changing the lip to use skin and some of the eye textures manually). One light, EZ Dome. Armor metallic stll needs to be adjusted to Superfly, but wanted the skin to be shown after EZSkin.

I suppose I should ask. Recently, I've undertaken adding more DS links to the Directory. So I'm curious to know, which scripts will or won't work in DS and preferably which version?

These are Poser scripts Earl, so won't work in DS. Poser uses Python for it's scripting, and I'm pretty sure DS does not.

Google says this:

ECMAScript Language Daz Script 2 is a dynamically-typed, interpreted, object-oriented scripting language that is tightly integrated with the Daz Studio API . It is an extension of QtScript, which is an extension of ECMAScript as defined in the ECMAScript Language Specification (ECMA-262).

So, def not Python.

I was going to say QtScript, as that's what I remember from when I was using DS, back in the day. I just wasn't sure if they had updated to something else since then.

V4.8.7: End-of-Life (as of December 2015). And the V6.2 is soon to be released. Looks pretty much like Poser's Python 2/3 problems. Reference: here.

Only the Poser 12 scripts at the top will run in Poser 12. With the legacy scripts, unfortunately, I never backed up older version of Poser so with Smith Micro out of the picture I only have access to Poser 12&11 so wouldn't be able to test if any of them stopped working after a specific version prior to 11.

You may even have a unique collection of scripts that works either with Poser 11 or Poser 12, and have at the same tîme the collection that adapts itself, using Poser's Python menu.

Example:

Also depends on what version of Poser a script was originally made for as Poser 12 isn't the 1st version of Poser to receive an updated Python engine.
