Daz/Arena Plugin News?

Any news on the Daz/Arena plugin? I see that Daz has a new animation module that can work with imported bvh data.

Re: ARENA and Poser

Hey Bryan,

I'm using Poser Pro. e-frontier isn't around, so I guess I'll look at Smith Micro for it. I'll try 6.

Thanks!--Tim

Re: Daz Studio Plugin Specs/Availability Date?

Just one more question: will the plugin feed live into Daz Studio, or does it export the captured Arena session to Daz?

Re: ARENA and Poser

<t>Actually, it occurred to me that theoretically one could use this coming Arena/Daz Studio plugin to get the motion into Daz Studio, then export that motion as a BVH file to Poser. I just tried importing a bvh I exported from Arena into DS, and then exported that to Poser and it seems to work, tho...

Daz Studio Plugin Specs/Availability Date?

<t>First: could somebody describe in general terms how the Daz Studio plugin will work? Will it "retarget" the Arena data to the specific Daz skeleton so that all the translations/rotations will be correct? <br/> <br/> <br/> Second: I'm working on a job right now where I could really use the ability...

Re: ARENA and Poser

<t>Thanks, Rock, but I just found out the PLE version doesn't export. I can't get it to import a Poser bvh, either! Arena is going to have a Daz Studio plugin in September--I'd like to see them come out out with a Poser one as well--there are a zillion Poser users out there--far more than Daz Studio...

Re: ARENA and Poser

<t>No apolgies--I can't make even get started! As I understand it, I would need to import a bvh file exported from Poser to be characterized, but MB says the files "Can't be read". Do you have to format them somehow? The Arena files import with no problems.<br/> <br/> Also, I have the demo version o...

Re: ARENA and Poser

Hey Bryan,

Quick question: how do you get a bvh out of Motion Builder to bring into Poser? I downloaded the MB demo, and it looks like you can import a BVH, but that you can only export FBX(?)


Thanks--Tim
