    I was wondering if anyone could help with this problem: When I export some things as obj. to 3DS Max, if there are 2 things using the same material only one of them will be included in the mtl file. This happens with certain sets of earings, and the Headlights for GF8 which are geo-grafts. I think it has to do with how the surfaces are named but…[Read more]

    What to do with files that are not named properly and don’t have all the files, i.e. content folder, manifest and supplement files? Is there a way to fix these to install with the DIM?
    Thanks

    • Daddy_George 2 weeks ago

      “Content Package Assist” is the program you want to use to convert non-Daz install packages to a format DIM will understand. If you use the Smart Content tab, you will still have to categorize the files in daz studio.

      Search for it in the blog section.

      • Techsnoop 1 week, 4 days ago

        Thanks, I have it, Do you know where there is documentation? Maybe YouTube?

        • Daddy_George 1 week, 3 days ago

          It comes with a help file built in. Just click on the “Help…” icon in the upper right section of the tool icons. It does a pretty good job explaining. I mainly use it for non-daz files. But if you use it with a zip that actually has files in “/runtime/support” files, you want to make sure you toggle off the option to Auto Clean the…[Read more]

      When opening the “content” folder do you see something like this

      data
      people
      runtime

      • Techsnoop 1 week, 4 days ago

        one says ;
        content
        manifest.dsx

        one says;
        environments
        runtime

        another says;
        data
        people
        runtime

        So there are many formats. Is the content creator ok for all? Or do I need to do something else?
        Thanks for your help

        • 3Danimenut 1 week, 4 days ago

          Are you unzipping multiple things are a time?, when you unzip a DAZ file for example:

          IM00048151-01_GraceforGenesis38Female
          you should see, (where ever you extracted it too) these three things

          Content
          Manifest.dsx
          Supplement.dsx

          inside the content folder are all the things you will need
          data
          environments
          runtime
          people

            Ok, example 1 14685 Creation Machine + War Eagle has zip file of ; 14685 Creation MachineDS which has the folders;
            environments
            runtime
            there is no content folder and no supplement.dsx file
            example 2; VC+ER folder has the folders;
            content and
            manifest.dsx file
            I figure I could just zip that folder, but how would I know what to name it?

            • 3Danimenut 1 week, 1 day ago

              ah ok, i just looked at the download myself, no i know what your seeing.

              ok, the war eagle is a poser format, CR2 which will still work in Daz just fine, in the contents folder you will only have a “runtime” folder

              Creation Machine is just and environment, so you’ll only see
              environment
              Runtime for that.

    can anyone tell me how to fix my daz studio? I purchased an upgrade cpu for rendering and brought daz studio 4.8 over via usb stick. after installation I edited the preferences to read my external drive and all was good. I did a test render and called it the night. The next morning I opened Daz3d and all my content would not load in the Contents…[Read more]

    • Undesignated 1 month, 1 week ago

      If you have not found a solution, i might suggest going into the Content library panel, and right click in the left pane, and click on add base directory and the add you daz directory wherever it may be.

      • Caleegiams 1 month, 1 week ago

        When I tried that Daz would crash so, I created another root directory and is doesn’t crash but when I right-click it doesn’t give the option of adding a base directory. Very frustrating.

        • 3Danimenut 1 week, 3 days ago

          which Content panel are you have trouble with?
          Smart Content?
          or
          Content Library?
          did you move into a hole new PC, or just upgraded the CPU in an old one?

          • Caleegiams 1 week, 3 days ago

            whole new cpu. I’m having trouble with the contents folder. Basically just opening it up locally and drag dropping it into the scene. Works just as good I guess haha! I can manually search for everything in the contents folder search bar but that takes forever.

            • 3Danimenut 1 week, 3 days ago

              Smart content I.E. stuff you bought from Daz can be reinstalled at any time with the DIM, just login in to your account and re-download your stuff

              Content Library on the other hand is normally stuff you manually installed, when you move into a new PC is always a good idea to make a copy your “My Daz 3D library” or you end up having to reinstall…[Read more]

            • Caleegiams 1 week, 1 day ago

              Thanks 3Danimenut but I already tried all that. I did have the folder on an external drive so it wasn’t need to be copied. It also worked just fine after installation. The next time I opened Daz up I was face-to-face with this mess. It’s tiresome and I’ve given up. Just opening up my installed files folder and manually dropping items right onto…[Read more]

    bin.gz files….
    .
    I have a bunch of bin.gz & .bin files i can’t decompress. Whatever ‘unzipper’ software i use , and even if i change the extension (-> .zip, .rar. 7z, .tar…) i still get a ‘unable to decompress’.
    The files ARE NOT encrypted or password protected at all and yes, IT IS compressed files (hexa confirmed).

    • SonyTony 1 month, 2 weeks ago

      .bin is usually a binary file, try mounting it with daemon tools or use ultra iso to have a poke around.

      Cheers
      Tony

      • SonyTony 1 month, 2 weeks ago

        Not all that sure about the .gz but found this,

        http://www.winzip.com/gz-file.html

        • MikoWeb 1 month, 2 weeks ago

          tks but already tried winzip…it just don’t work neither.
          Secondly 7z or daemon can mount or unmount any *.bin file whether is an ‘image’ but in that case….again, not.

      • Amber 1 month, 2 weeks ago

        I would have suggested daemon tools or PowerISO myself, but if that didn’t do the trick…
        maybe they had their extension changed? I’ve seen that happen before because of weirdos. In any event, to be sure what they truly are, (which would then tell you what tool opens tehm and if they are indeed ccorrupt or not), examine them in a hex editor, then…[Read more]

        • Amber 1 month, 2 weeks ago

          Oops, also forgot to mention, anything bin.gz is gonna be a Linux file… I hope you’re not trying this on Win or Mac! in any event you should probably be using gunzip or gzip to decompress these, and should wind up with a generic binary.

          I just did a little digging, and found this…


          gunzip complains about corrupted data or a CRC error

          99.9% of the problems with gzip are due to file transfers done in ASCII mode instead of BINARY mode. In particular, gopher is known to corrupt binary files by considering them as ASCII. Make sure that your local copy of the file has exactly the…[Read more]

          • MikoWeb 1 month, 1 week ago

            yes could be that have smthg to do with it.
            .
            i’ve managed to turn one of files into a ascii mode and then i can open it (this is a total nonesense) with IZArc and deflate it but what i thus have its totally inexploitable.
            .
            Anyhow…in one hand at the very beginning (as i’ve said) I have a 1f8b or 1f9b “magic bytes”…which mean its a real gzip…[Read more]

    Seems I remember some discussion a week or two ago about Imgur links not showing the image, but for the life of me I can’t find it in the forums. I just posted an imgur link to Tootsie’s contest, but it’s only showing the link. Was there any resolution? Sorry for the redundancy.

    • Amber 1 month, 2 weeks ago

      I’ve checked a number of image links, they use Imgur and are perfectly visible… are you sure to use the link with the .jpg extension? I believe it was in the FAQ I saw that you need to use that link or else it won’t show up.

    Kids 4- I need some help.
    I wanted to use the Schmoe & Elf morph for the K4. The morphs work just fine, but I can’t find any wardrobe or props to fit. Any assistance would be great. I’ve tried M4 & V4 clothes, but they don’t re-size if I ‘fit’ them.

    If I can’t get this to work then I’m going to need to rethink my Halloween entry.
