Can't get dson importer anymore?

I experienced poser 12 through the trial version and it was quite good. However, dson importer-for-poser page has been removed. ( Can I send a my G3 or G8 to a poser 12 without the importer? Or are Daz's items no longer usable in poser 12? 


  • Genesis 3 and 8 were not supported by the DSON Importer anyway. You can export them as CR2 files, though that will involve some limitations compared to the DS version.

    Poser 12 switched to Python 3 while P11 used 2.7, so the importer would have needed to be rewritten in Python 3 to work in P12.

    The importer had not been updated in years and didn't support Genesis 3+ figures anyway, so a P12 version was never produced.

  • You can run Poser 11 and 12 alongside each other, quite happily. Poser 11 is still available and currently sells for $52, and in my opinion it's vital to have both. Especially for running older scripts and DSON. 

    Though you can run DSON in Poser 11 to get Genesis 1 & 2 imports, then save and load the scene to Poser 12.... in practice things go badly wrong with the Genesis figure very quickly once it's in Poser 12.

    If you only want a static and clothed Genesis (any generation) in Poser 12, as an OBJ, then the best way is via a freebie called "Automatic OBJ Exporter" for Daz. It's geared for Poser sized and oriented imports, and keeps clothes/poses/hair. You can also plug a $50 polygon reducer into its simple guided and semi-automated workflow. Though in practice it's most suitable for those who just want Poser's superior real-time Comicbook or Sketch rendering of the figure, with a view to further hand -inking or paint-over of the render.

    If you're just hoping for 'DAZ Genesis 8 +iRay textures, photoreal rendered in Poser 12' then you're out of luck - unless you use a Iray render as a 2D camera-facing billboard in Poser 12. There's a Poser 12 script for the latter.

  • you can probably import FBX exports

    DAZ should make it Open-Source, as was done with the other software bridges...

    One can get Genesis 3 and 8 into Poser 11 with this tool which fixes the DAZ generated cr2....
