Runtime ZIP is currently only available as part of the following bundles:


Runtime ZIP is a packer and unpacker for ZIP archives with some special features for ZIP files with Poser content. It has all the features required to create, modify, and unpack ZIP files. You can open several ZIP files at once, which is useful for products that consist of more than one ZIP archive.

When adding Poser content to a ZIP file, Runtime ZIP ensures that all paths are stored relative to the Runtime folder. It can detect dependent files like thumbnails, geometries, and textures and also add them to the ZIP. When extracting Poser content from a ZIP file, it ensures that Poser files are stored correctly in the Runtime folder, even if the paths in the ZIP are incomplete, missing, or have additional folders in front of Runtime. You can select only Poser files for extract, and Runtime ZIP detects which additional files have to be extracted because they are referred from the Poser files. For files extracted from the ZIP, it can correct the references to them if they are wrong. Finally, you can force that geometry, binary morph, texture, and Python files are extracted to the subfolder of Runtime where they belong.

The built-in preview shows the content of text, rich text, image, thumbnail, poser, binary morph, obj, and mtl files. For poser files, the included objects are listed with details like geometry resource, actor hierarchy, channels, and materials. It also shows the file references in a folder tree. Alternatively, poser files may be previewed in text mode. For binary morphs, the morphs are listed with actor, id, and number of deltas and points. The preview for obj geometries shows statistics, groups, and materials. The obj material preview lists the materials with their paramters.

In combination with Runtime Repair, you can repair and optimize Poser files before they are added to the ZIP or after they were extracted from the ZIP. Both tools are seamlessly integrated, you only have to select the repair option from Runtime ZIP. Packing and unpacking Poser content was never so easy and safe!
