I just purchased the "Corporate Raider" costume package of the Grey Alien figure here on Renderosity for use in Poser 11.3. It says it is for Poser and is "legacy content". I went and installed it using the "install from zip " function, and the install seemed to go as normal. I've done this many times before. But I can not find the clothes anywhere in the library, even with the library search function. I tried re-installing the package, and the Poser zip file installer said "files already exist"... so it THINKS it worked the first time. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? I am a bit experienced with digital VFX work for videos... but am a bit new to Poser itself. I'm assuming this might be "operator error"....... but it is driving me nuts. Thanks in advance.

Did you refresh the Library? Better yet, did you restart Poser?

Is there a readme file in the zip? That should tell you where the files are placed. Conforming clothing should be in Figures, but sometimes they're in Props instead.

Are you looking in the correct runtime? I assume "install from zip" puts the items in the Purchases runtime.

If it's not there...could you have installed the product into a runtime that's not attached? You can have multiple runtimes in Poser 11.

Install from zip gives you the flexibility to chose any runtime or create any runtime for installation. The product in question is a very old file from Content Paradise. And, unfortunately, the webpage readme is not available. I posted a suggestion above, however, the content could be a runtime not linked to the Library.

If it's a very old product it'll have rsr instead of png. I remember a LOT of Sixus' stuff having to be converted.

Thank you. Yes.... refreshed the library and restarted Poser. I always restart Poser after installing anything.... just in case. Aha....... In the readme it says the info below. Yes there are some rsr files shown. That might be the issue. This is new to me. HOW do I "convert" rsr files (never encountered them before) to png?

best,...................john

Thanks everyone commenting for helping me here. Appreciate it. Learning a new package (Poser) can be a steep learning curve. All to a different creative end (video/film work) than Poser stuff itself.

I'll keep working on this. All for a quick background "extra' for maybe a 4 second scene, a character which is there mainly for the humor (for anyone who notices it) than any major plot/story stuff.

best,........ john

THANKS. I had just found this when Win 10 had some issues with the above file: http://www.senosoft.com/softp3doDownload.php

I'll let you know........

You should still see the names of the items, though you won't see the thumbnails if they are RSR files. Just the shrugging man.

Looks like the clothing is in the Props section of the library. If you don't see it there, you may be looking in the wrong runtime.

According to the readme you posted, there are png image files accompanying the rsr's so that's not the issue. But I agree with randym77, you may be looking at the wrong runtime. Please verify where the installation package is going and make sure that the runtime is present in the Library.

Sadly, that's often an issue with legacy content. I have a 'sparse' C: run-time, but almost a terabyte of off-line external libraries on E:. I mount what-ever 'stuff' is relevant to current mini-projects, de-mount when done...

Persuading 'self-installer' exe packs to un-zip to new folder on E: rather than deep, deep into C: often requires beating with proverbial '4x2'...

Yeah....... I saw that and assumed that it was not the issue and "aborted mission" to convert them.

I'm gonna' dig into the library and the runtimes and such and see if I can figure this all out. I would ASSUME that the Poser zip installer would put everything where it is supposed to go. BUT... I'm not a content developer, so maybe it is the zip instaqller files it reads that tell the installer where to put stuff. Don't know.

Ah... the joys of computers. ;)

best,.....john

Yeah I looked there. No joy.

I'm guessing it the the "runtime" issue of some sort.

I don't use the Poser zip installer myself, but I just tried it to see how it works.

For me, it automatically downloaded the item and installed it in the Purchases runtime. The Purchases runtime is a runtime that's inside the main runtime (Poser 11 Content). You should see it in your library; you cannot detach the Purchases runtime.

Try clicking on the name of your runtime (probably Poser 11 Content). You should get a menu that lets you make the Purchases runtime active. Then look in Props.

Personally, I install the content by unzipping it to where I want it. I do not use the download manager within Poser. Just unzip the file, and extract the Runtime folder to the folder that contains the runtime you want it in.

Starting to get the feel of the directory structure. It is kinda' "un-intuitive' for me, unfortunately. Still working on this... but getting closer to understanding it. Thanks all.
