Bug Fix

Because of a typo, the script _RemoteExec_.py will not work in Poser 9 and 10. Please download the fix above and replace this script.

Description

Enhance the Windows Explorer to become your Poser content library! With PX - Poser eXplorer, you can load and save Poser content directly from Windows Explorer, Windows Search, and other applications, without browsing the libraries in Poser. Even better, you can select several files to load at once and automatically conform loaded figures with and without applying morphs and deformers. Besides Poser content, you may also import OBJ geometries, add images to the current material or as background, or run Python scripts in Poser directly from Windows Explorer.

To save Poser content to a particular folder, simply select the according entry in the "New" menu of Windows Explorer, and select which type of content you want to save: the scene, content from the scene like figures, props, or poses, the render settings, the last rendered image, or export the scene in a different format.

With PX Search, you can search more efficient for Poser content by selecting the Runtimes and libraries to search. The search result shows a preview image as well as file name and location. The search result can be loaded to Poser the same way as content from the Windows Explorer using the PX extensions. In addition, common file operations like copy, move, or delete and drag'n'drop are supported. Several search results can be kept open in parallel.

There are also several smaller enhancements. To facilitate browsing, Poser content files display their thumbnail (png or rsr) as icon. There are default icons for all Poser content and some related file types like binary morphs and OBJ geometries, and all file types get their own type name. You can add Poser content to the Poser 7 collections or to the Poser 8 favorites from the context menu of Windows Explorer. If you are using several Poser versions, the PX tray control can quickly switch between different targets for PX to load content. Also, it allows to start Poser and the PX applications.

The included quick view application provides information about Poser files, binary morph files, OBJ geometries, and OBJ materials. For Poser files, it displays the contained objects and the file references. For all objects, it lists the geometry, the binary morph file, and the materials. Figures also show the actor hierarchy and the IKs. Actors additionally list all channels including their values. The files are displayed in a folder tree. For binary morph files, the quick view lists the included morphs with their name, actor, id, number of deltas, and number of vertices. The quick view for OBJ geometries lists the number of faces, lines, points, vertices, and other parameters as well as the groups and materials. For MTL files, all materials and their parameters are listed.

The features of PX are enabled and modified with a simple configuration application. It also allows to add other applications like editors or other tools to the context menu of Windows Explorer for the different file types associated with Poser. In Poser itself, just a small Python script is used that runs only when loading or saving content. PX may be used with several Poser versions in parallel, it always interacts with the currently running Poser instance.

Finally, there is an application to manage the Runtime folders of Poser. Simply add, remove, and change the order of the Runtime folders. You may determine a default Runtime library that Poser uses on every start, instead of using the last one. This can even speed up launching Poser if you use the main Runtime or an empty Runtime as default.
