Does anyone use Hexagon 2.5 to make charactors, morphs, textures, clothing, props etc for v4 v4.2 m4 daz3e charactors? if so are they able to upload to poser? trying to find a program that will alow me to do said things with daz3d characters and run in poser 9.           Also does any one knows what program was used to create daz3d characters?

Victoria 4 and Michael 4 were created in Modo. Early characters were made in Lightwave, I believe.

Almost any modeling software can be used to make items for Poser. Export the model as an obj file and import it into Poser.

You can effectively use Hexagon to create everything you need for your poser scene.

If you have hexagon, you can download daz 4.5 and use the bridge to transfert your figure to hexagon.

Just be aware that each modeling program has it's own scale. If you want to do a morph and export a modified group (head for example), it has to be in poser scale (there is a special setting in daz in the obj export to perform it correctly) in order to load perfectly in poser. The second point is that for a morph, you do have to keep exactly the same number of vertices for a designed group in order to work.

There ares many tutorials on the web to explain it.

hope it helps.

My version of Hexagon came with a tutorial on how to export from Poser to model morphs for Poser.
