Thanks for the link, I'll have a look at it for sure..
I experience the same issues when using Gen2 characters with the slow downs, even with an overlock'd 8 core CPU and two high end GPUs.. I'll use the Gen2 characters for series posing renders but not for general everyday work, too slow..
After a few hours of trying to get that converter thing to work, I can't seem to make it show up in my Poser 11 Pro library.. the instructions weren't fully clear as I had to figure a few things out but that last part of conversion doesn't seem to want to catch.. It looks like I was able to create the .duf files but cannot see them in Poser even though they exist within the right folder, it simply doesn't want to show up at all..?!
It might be related to another issue currently being experienced where when I load a Gen2 character, I can't seem to change the body morphs character.. DSON appears to be working but nothing happens..
That video blog was somewhat painful to wade through.. wow. I don't profess to being able to do it better but some instructional videos are painful..
oh well.. back to V4 work etc..
