P3dO Explorer 2.4.6 Newsletter
Open Partial Pose
Frankly, there hasn't been many updates since 2.4 - but also there has been no license
expiration for more than 12 months :)
The reason is I have been very busy professionnaly, and also doing more Poser.
Now, I am preparing a major update for this fall or Winter, and as usual
will release intermediary updates with ongoing finished stuff.
This version - 2.4.6 - is nevertheless the 6th update since 2.4 and this newsletter will focus on
the most interesting features introduced. And one is really cute : I love Open Partial Pose.
Go get 2.4.6 on the
Note to Poser users: don't forget to download 2.4.6 Poser plugins pack too.
2.4.6 new features

Open Poses from ZIP
Explore Favorites command
Quidam 3D viewer
7-Zip archive support
Poser XMP support
Objaction Mover plugin
PoserPython 2.4.6 - Open Partial Poses - Open from ZIP
What is Open Partial Poses ? Strip a Pose of unwanted elements while
loading into Poser, thus applying only part of the Pose.
How to use ?
Not only for Poses
- Click a Pose or Material (PZ2 or MT5)
- Click PoserPython button on InDepth toolbar and select: Open Partial Pose
- Unselect the actors or materials you don't want to be applied
- Click Ok
Open Partial Pose is for Poses, Materials, INJ/REM, Hands and Faces.
Compressed or uncompressed, zipped or not.
Open from ZIP
You may now open a Pose in Poser directly from a zip file. Simply double-click it.
Available for Poses, Hands, Faces, INJ/REM, Materials, Lights, Cameras - compressed or not.
Figures, Hairs and Props are not supported.
If the Pose has references - textures for a material, scripts
for an INJ/REM - these should have been unzipped before. So it is designed for and more suitable to Poses.
Visit PoserPython's Open Partial Pose
page for more.
What is an external Runtimes ?
As you guess it is a Runtime which is not listed within Poser or Daz Studios Runtimes list.
A lot of you people have been asking me to support that kind of Runtimes : done.
Runtime Manager now has a new menu entry (Tools menu): "Poser/Daz Runtimes List" in which you may
easily plug and unplug Runtimes. Those Runtimes will only be visible to P3dO, but P3dO will
treat them as regular Runtimes.
Only visible to P3dO means you can't use them to open a file in Poser. You know, you may still open
a Pose or a Face - You are just bound to Poser limitations when opening outside a regular

Quidam 3D viewer
is an oustanding Character modeling Software. I like it very much, for its ease of use
Quidam also comes with a library containing Hair, Cloths, Props, Poses and because
It is more convenient to browse 3D libraries with P3dO I went to work on this. And so...
When browsing Quidam and Argile libraries P3dO
is showing QDM (Quidam Models) and QDP (Quidam Poses) thumbnails at a larger size than Quidam
And a 3D preview of QDM meshes with the usual list of
attached references (Textures) and the ability to read from archives.
All you need to select the best props to fit your Quidam QUI in progress or to
preview your own QDMs (complex Figure with attached Props).
Figures, Props, Hairs, Cloths, Furniture,... P3dO will show all.
note N-Sided gave me all requested information about the QDM format.
Because export plugins are addons to Quidam, export of QDM to OBJ is not possible in P3dO.
2 improvements added to the Favorites menu:
Right click context menu which allow deleting Favorites.
Rather tricky to use, you have to right click before the submenu pops up :(
Explore Favorites command added to all submenus and also to the
above Popup. I recall that Explore Favorites will populate all links from a Favorites node,
it is some kind of Explore subfolders for Favorites.
Other additions and fix
Poser XMP support - only author's comments at the moment.
More coming with 2.5.
7-Zip archive support added to RAR, ZIP, CBR and CBZ.
7-Zip browser is a bit slow but it works the same as the RAR plugin.
Objaction Mover plugin -
Objaction Mover plugin is inspired from Objaction Mover tool. I tried to keep the spirit alive while
adding some combo, and the usual P3dO plugins stuff.
