I find Posette always pretty ugly. And weightmapping her? Back to the roots? We have so awesome new figures, Bella, PE, Dawn, Michel, Antonia. Why should somebody make this work for an old Lady like Posette?
@anomalaus Thanks for enlightening me!
I take it that the meditational pause cannot be avoided, so I will live with it.
I also try to run a Poser instance as long as possible, but sometimes disfunctional area rendering or sudden translations in morphs created by the Morphing Tool make a restart necessary.
If you have a large runtime (s), start the indexing and let it run. Once it has indexed all, there is hardly any delay the next time you start Poser. It will only check ti see if there are any updates.
The initial indexing may take quite a long time if your runtime is very large (mine is 700GB), but the update check takes only a few minutes and is hardly noticable. Turn on the message log and you can see what is happening.
@ibr_remote yep. The cr2 (crz) file is completely missing any reference to an equivalent for LeftIrisSize (which exists on the left eye) on the right eye actor. Using ADP's LIB_poser_pmd library, I was able to probe the PMD file for Pauline2 Asian and confirm that the Right Eye Iris Size morph is also absent from the PMD, so there's nothing that can be done to restore it, unless someone wants to map the left Eye vertices to the corresponding right Eye ones and copy the morph deltas.
My suggestion would be add a magnet to the right eye and make a similar morph yourself.
@redphantom, for every prop or figure which has materials, Poser likes to create a redundant "Preview" material and gives the root node a random Diffuse_Color. I don't know where this would ever be used or seen, unless it's a hangover or fallback for obj files which don't define any "usemtl" lines, so every facet gets the Preview material. It's an utter pain if the object does define materials to have a useless one floating around, and typically first in the menu list of materials.
My other bugbear with material room colours (at least on MacOS) is that white Colour chips aren't actually the full 255,255,255 RGB, but tend to be 254,254,254, instead. Why? (Unless it's come from some OS reduced-colour palette default, and is a nearest-match value)
I'd really like to see some of the complex parameters (like vectors) on Cycles nodes get the animated value treatment, so they can be set in the GUI, or modified by @bagginsbill 's Parmatic scripts.
@Cobra Thanks for the help. Sadly, Freda F did not work for me either, so I deleted that site from the directory. Truebones does still work just not that link, so I fixed that. Poser World of course, is another issue.
Just about done with this one now... basic figure set-up/rigging is complete, and I've only got a few ERC dials left to add for important features and functions... Still gotta do final tests and file clean-up as well...
When I looked over the thread again, I realised that I had seen it. My apologies for overlooking your pearl of wisdom in the face of utter bedazzlement with @bagginsbill 's gems. [Note to self: Investigate worship of familiarity with ALL the Gods, rather than just ONE, or None ;-).]
Ah, ok and thank you! I guess I went to "Adult", which I probably have the most content for (renderotica has 97% of all my items listed there), and didn't see my name.
Spaceships? Lol, I have 3 spaceships total... 2 of which were a team up (and the one that's 100% mine is bad Bad BAD).
Thank you for the effort though! nice of you to compile a list like this.
ps: It might have been easier to do the list the other way around, that is, make the list of all the names (so you don't have to worry about listing the same name 10 times) and just add what types of content they do.

I'm over the hill now myself, don worry 'bout it.
I was wondering, if it doesn't work copying over the up to date qm, would it be possible to simply install the latest version of poser pro and then delete poser and leave qm? Or maybe just leave poser on the machine and never use it if disk space isn't an issue.
(I have poser installed on both machines I use so not having any problems.)
