Why doesn't ShareCG content work? new Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I've installed content from ShareCG (in particular, DryJack's Shed, but also other stuff) but none of it is showing in DAZ under the Content Library tab.


The only way I've found of using the stuff is to Import the obj file and then add the texture manually, but I'm sure that's not the way it's supposed to be used.


I've merged the Runtime folder with the one found under C:\Users\myusername\My Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\ which is what people have said in other posts, but it still doesn't work.


Any advice (which actually works) would be welcome.

Hi Jason,


Since you mention DryJack's shed (Old Shack?) I assume you're talking about Poser-native content (CR2,PP2, etc). Since I don't know what you've already tried here's 3 basic things to check (if you haven't already.

First: check that DAZ Studio knows to look for Poser content in the right place. Assuming you're using DS4.6:
Edit > Preferences > Content Library > Content Directory Manager, and under Current Directories > Poser Formats check that you have 'C:\Users\myusername\My Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\' listed.
(By default I think it should be there)

Second: check that you have the correct files in the correct subfolders.
Using Windows Explorer check that there are files with .cr2  (for figures) or .pp2 (for props) extensions in the following folders (or in subfolders). You should have CR2 files here:
- C:\Users\myusername\My Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\Runtime\Libraries\Character\  
You shold have PP2 files:
- C:\Users\myusername\My Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library\Runtime\Libraries\Props\ 
You must have the correct files in the correct subfolders for anything to show up in the DS Content Library.

Third: when you look in the DS Content Library you should see several top level items - DAZ Studio Formats, Poser Formats, Other Import Formats, Products, and Categories. Expand the Poser Formats and you should see My Library. Expand that as well and you should see Figures, Props and some others. Expand Figures and you should find all the character CR2 files, or expand Props to see all the PP2 files. Double-click a PP2 or CR2 file and DAZ Studio will load the Poser figure/prop.

Hope that helps. If it doesn't post back here or mail me. Or you could mail the person who created the item.

Pete

Thank you.  The end of your instructions was what I was missing.  I didn't realise I needed to select Poser Formats instead of DAZ Studio formats.


I'll ask if I need any more help, and thanks again.

Since I have your "ear" so to speak, perhaps you'd be able to either clarify a rule or point me to someone who could?


Specifically, the rule about sexual content.


I want to post some "spreader bars" I created for a fanart render.  Do you know if bondage gear is considered sexual content under the rules and therefore forbidden?


If you don't know, who would I ask and how would I contact them?  I can't see any way to contact the site owner/moderator to ask.

The 'User Agreement' (there's a link at the very bottom of each page) specifically states "A. DON'T UPLOAD ILLEGAL, ADULT, OR SPAM CONTENT."


If you're uncertain whether your upload would be allowed I'd advise asking the folks who run the site - there's a 'Contact Us' link at the very bottom of every page, next to the mailing address for ShareCG.

Thanks.  I have no idea how I missed that link.  I have now used it.  I'll post the information in this thread if I get it.
