News - P3dO Explorer 2.5

September 22, 2016 - P3dO 2.5 is available

At last P3dO 2.5 is here.
It has been a while since last release, but now P3dO is back on rails for good.
This version includes many bug fixes since 2.4.6, and new stuff on Poser, Daz Studio and Luxology MODO.
These will be the 3 main axes of P3dO developement: Poser, Daz Studio and 3D file formats viewers.

Note: No P3dO pro license is due to expire on 2.5. 2012 through 2016 will not be taken into account in the license duration.

Get it now:
P3dO downloads (both free and pro versions)

Partial Face
Partial Poses with new features, especially for the Face.
The Face hierarchical selection makes it easy to Pose only part of the Face: eyes, brows, mouth, lips, nose, cheeks in a single click.
I recall that the P3dO partial Pose opener makes any Pose/Hand/Face a partial Pose. Also it fixes several Poser poses issues like morph targets injection, Figure XYZ move. It is simply great - I love it.

DUF Poses viewing
Introduction of the Daz DUF file format to the P3dO exclusive list.
A Daz DUF 3D poses viewer. It works exactly like the PZ2 and BVH poses viewer.
G2/V6, G3/V7 skeleton templates have been added to the templates directory (in Repository). With DUF, Genesis figure template is detected automatically so the best is to have V4 as the default template for other poses.
It is just the beginning with DUF poses, just the beginning with DUF, and a new start for Daz Studio support in P3dO.

Luxology MODO 3D viewing
Just a basic mesh viewer without materials, as of today. The LXO loader is not finished yet. Works for simple mesh but lacks translation, scaling and rotation for complex meshes, and materials support as well.
I am still working on these, the complete viewer will be available in December. Or on request if you can't wait till next update.

Poser compressed viewing from archives
The Poser compressed family (CRZ, PPZ, HRZ, P2Z,...) are now also opened for viewing from archives.
Note that PoserPyhton already has this for Poses, Hands and Faces.

XMP PMD DUF
Poser XMP, PMD merged with Poser files like PNG/RSR thumbs.
DUF thumbs merged with files. TIP.PNG will be done in next version.

Misc
faster 3D loading
customizable thumbnail size (up to 1024)
ZIP context menu back to 2.4 version, and thus faster.
7zip format added to the supported archives viewers.

Next update in December
more DUF stuff.
more MODO stuff.
improved search with search result sets.
multi-monitor support.



September 15, 2016 - P3dO 2.5 coming soon

After a long pause I decided to seriously get back on work on the project.
I will ship a new release every 3 months or so. But because I've got fewer time, these will be smaller updates. About the same as this one.

Now, P3dO 2.5 will be available next week. This version includes bug fixes from 2.4.6 and of course new stuff.

What's new in 2.5 ?
