Features list

40 3D formats viewing     3D animation     Digital Photography    View from ZIP/RAR/7Z    3D Scene manager

Loads all Poser 3D files including their compressed counterparts (CRZ, PZZ, PPZ, HRZ).
Poser 3D viewing is not complete yet and lacks scaling. It will be steadily improved.
(Poser 3D viewing is exclusive to P3dO).
Basic feature for each format is: 3D viewing (including from Zip/Rar/7z Archives), Scene Manager support, conversion to OBJ and thumbnail caching.
Detailed list in File Formats page.
P3DO is saving a cached thumbnail for each 3D file that doesn't have a thumbnail otherwise. The thumbnail is generated from P3DO's 3D viewer and saved in a cache database working the same way as Windows' one.
Save as support from any supported 3D file format to Wavefront Object.
Options for centering, dropping to flore, scaling (global scale), exporting normals, exporting UVs.
Poser compatible Save as.
Viewers and players (thumbnails, 3D and pictures) are able to read files directly from archives (without actually unzipping anything).
3D viewing include Textured render (the textures are also fetched from the archive).
In P3DO's thumbnails view archives are presented with thumbnails taken from pictures contained inside making it easy to identify the archive at first glance.
Archives support also include a Text file viewer to view ReadMe without opening the archive, and basic password (password has to be added to the name).
ZIP, RAR, 7Z, CBR, CBZ, GZ (no tarball) formats supported.
Skeleton (Boned) display of a Poser Poses with animation support.
Read BVH player below for a detailed description of the 3D animation player.

(Poser 3D viewing is exclusive to P3DO).
Skeleton (Boned) display of a BVH motion with animation support (screenshot).
The media player like viewer includes: time/frame info display, framed trackbar, multimedia keyboard support, fast forward button, right-left bones with distinct colors, ability to save a 3D animation to GIF animation.
P3DO's thumbnails view shows the number of frames of each BVH and BVHs are assigned a thumbnail by the cache engine.
This is a tool that split a files in Row, columns in order to be able to preview a texture animation.
This is not animated texture support in the 3D viewer but a preview of the texture animation.
This tool can also be used to view sprites the same way.
Simply play anime GIFs and gives information on the animation (number of frames, frame rate, duration).
The media player like viewer includes: time/frame info display, framed trackbar, multimedia keyboard support, fast forward button, auto play option.

Detailed list in File Formats page.
Shows the UV Map of a given mesh. The displayed map takes into account the materials and groups visibility making it possible to generate a partial map.
The map may be saved to the disk.
Morphs, materials, attached files detailed in sided info.
Files whose location is not known are colored in red.
Scene Manager is a great time saver for 3D files scattered in various locations, like Poser files in Runtimes.
Scene manager lists the content of a 3D file (not only for Poser, all supported 3D formats) in a thumbnailed view. Wherever those files are on your disk you will see them and be able to treat them as if they were in the same directory.
With Scene Manager it is easy to remove a Scene at once, copy, edit, show, navigate to its components. And apply whatever your Explorer context menu offers (like coyping, zipping the Scene).
Another Poser dedicated tool similar to the above but working a different way.
Wereas 3D Scene Manager is only able to copy/paste the Windows classic way, the AwkPlugin will copy/move the entire directory structure of your scene to the output runtime.
This makes it possible to change a scene location, or install it to a Runtime, in a few seconds.
Librarian will scan your Poser and Daz|Studio runtimes libraries and will report wrong references or missing files.
Librarian is a report tool, it does not offer any fix utility - at the moment. But Librarian has a major advantage it is fast, and I really mean it.
Fast - As an example, scan Poser libraries with as much as 42,000 files (including thumbnails) in 15 minutes - this is Librarian !
To finish with speed, Librarian has also been designed for even more speed optimization : you may select the runtimes you wish to explore, you may choose a special report mode (called "Manage Scan result") that will render a report within seconds.
Report - The report itself is a html file that lists the figure files (any Poser file) with a wrong reference path, and the list of those wrong references.
You may select which kind of files are to be reported, for which runtime.
This unzipper plugin is a classic unzipper with some Poser dedicated features.
Quick selection of Poser runtimes, compare and fix Zip archive folder hierarchy and Zipped Poser file paths, ability to customize the installation by renaming the files before unzipping, basic undoing of the installation, checks for collisions, list files belonging to a Poser scene.
PoserFavorite will update the P3DO Favorites from your Poser runtimes.
With PoserFavorite you can have all your Poser libraries structure copied in P3DO in a few seconds. Then it is up to you to modify the P3DO Favorites (for example all Vicky dedicated folders together). PoserFavorite will respect this organization and still be able to reflect any change in your Poser libraries next time you will run it.
- PoserPython is a plugin to open files in Poser directly from P3DO. With PoserPython you don't need to use the Poser library palette anymore more
- Poser cloth figure detection: when clicking on a file P3DO will display which figure it belongs to (i.e telling it's a Victora cloth) which is a most valuable information.
- Automatically generates missing Poser thumbnails from 3D Render.
- P3DO makes only 1 thumbnail from both Poser file and its pictures and treats them as a whole. When you copy, move, rename, delete a Poser file P3DO will take care of the picture for you.
Wizard that convert any supported picture file format to JPEG, PNG, BMP or GIF.
You may switch between 2 modes : Directory mode which is Rsr2Png classic dialog and Runtimes mode.
In Runtimes mode Rsr2Png offers a selectable list of Poser and Daz Studio runtimes for quick conversion Runtimes as a whole.
P3DO is the only viewer able to show thumbnails from Vue d'Esprit files.
Wireframe, flat shaded, smooth shaded, cartoon, texture mapping polygon modes.

With P3DO pro Pattern Renamer (which is free otherwise) is able to operate in subfolders.

And also

P3DO takes the best from Windows Explorer and adds picture oriented features.
Ability to scan a whole folder hierarchy instead of working on one folder at a time.
As a file manager P3DO offers 2 ways to rename files. The mass renamer plugin (Pattern Renamer) can rename a whole picture set in just one click.
UI is based on docking windows which can be dragged, dropped, resized, hidden according to your wish and needs. And also saved thank to the Layout Manager.
