I’ve updated and re-packed all my personal fit morphs so they work now both in Poser 6 ( or above) and Daz Studio , as you don’t need a Python script to create the empty channels anymore .
To inject these custom morphs into the clothing items I’m using now PMD morph definitions from Poser which aren’t natively supported by D|S. However, DeltaX15 has created a free plug-in called “InjectPMD” which will read and inject the morphs from a .pmd file .You’ll need his script properly installed once for all in order to use these fitting morphs in D|S.
Download the right file for your OS and check for latest version here. Detailed installation notes for the script are included , please follow them carefully .
This script only works for INJecting the morphs, not for REMoving them .
Please ensure that the clothing piece is selected before INJecting the morphs into it ( In DAZ|Studio ,a newly loaded figure is generally NOT selected ).
I’ve included all necessary .dsa files within my morphs packs to offer you a “one-click” solution , once the script is correctly installed you don’t need to launch “InjectPMD” from “Edit” menu , nor manually search for the .pz2 files anymore .
Injections from PMD files are natively supported in Poser 6 and above but won’t work in earlier versions .
Pmd files are generated by Poser ; these files cannot be edited “by hand” in a text editor .Please do not move ( nor rename) “Alizea3D” folders containing these .pmd files ; you may move pose files found under Libraries/Pose/GND4 clothing fits folder to any location that is more convenient to you ( in outfit’s MAT folder for ex.).
Why all these tricks ?
When you create a morph for your own use in a modelling program , it’s very easy to load it in Poser as a morph target – it will load the exported .obj file of the morph . When it comes to distribute the morph , things get a little complicated as the distribution of an .obj or .cr2 file is generally prohibited . The most convenient way is to create an injection file .But in order for this to work , clothing’s .cr2 must contain at least one empty channel , as the injection will take place into it . You can’t inject a morph into a channel that is already occupied with another morph ( in fact you CAN , but it won’t work correctly ) . Characters such as Victoria 4 have several emtpy channels so content creators for her can distribute their work as INJ poses files . Unfortunately , almost all clothing items I’ve saw don’t own any empty channel , so I must do a trick . For Poser users , a script allowed to add a channel . DazStudio users can’t use a Poser script .One solution – surely not the only one – came from PMD files , as there is no need of creating empty channels anymore , the channel is “included” in the .pmd file and it wears the same name as the custom morph .
October 2012 – Edit : Important note for DS4 users :
It seems that InjectPMD won’t work with DS4 and above . Until the script gets updated , try a beta version or you can find a tweak here . Otherwise , keep a copy of your DS3 , inject the morphs into the clothing then save the clothing as a character preset , you should be able to use this figure in DS4 ..
