Posing Panel


  • Load Pose. Load pose from a .duf files.
  • Load Pose Library. Load poses from one or several .duf files and create a pose library.
  • Load Action. Load poses from one or several .duf files and create an action.

Import Pose

Select the armature and press Import Pose. A file selector appears with the following options:

  • Clear Pose. Zero the translations and rotations of all bones before loading the pose. The default is True, and it is very rare to change this option.
  • Affect Object. The pose may contain keyframes both for the various bones and for the entire object. Sometimes we only want to pose the bones, leaving the object where it is. The default is True.
  • Affect Values. Include morph values in the pose. For this option to take effect, the morphs must have been loaded to the character first.
  • Selected Bones Only. Only pose the selected posebones.  
  • Convert Poses: The Genesis figure has evolved over the generations, and poses for one generation are not compatible with others. If this option is enabled, the importer attempts to make a conversion to the active rig; how well it succeeds is another matter.
Choose among the import options and select one of the poses. You can either select a .duf file, or an image file which has the same name as a .duf file. Either way the .duf file will be loaded. It is an error to select an image file with no corresponding .duf file, such as one of the tip files above.

Import Pose Library

If we press Import Pose Library, the file selector has more options:

The first five options are the same as for the Import Pose button. The remaining options are:
  • Add To Pose Library: Add selected poses to a pose library. If disabled the pose is simply loaded to the active rig.
  • Pose Library: Name of the pose library.
  • Load All: Load all files in the selected folder. Default False.
  • Includes. If Load All is selected, only include .duf/.dsf files containing this string.
  • Excludes. If Load All is selected, don't include .duf/.dsf files containing this string.

We want to load the three sitting poses to a pose library. Therefore we change Pose Library to Sitting (the name of the new library), turn on Load All, and set Includes to Sitting.

All three poses whose names contain the string "Sitting" are now loaded to the pose library. The pose library is accessed from the armature context.

Import Action

 If we press Import Action, the file selector has some new options:

 The first five options are the same as for the Import Pose button. The remaining options are:
  • Add To Action: Add selected poses to an action.
  • Action: Name of the action.
  • Load All: Load all files in the selected folder. Default False.
  • Includes. If Load All is selected, only include .duf/.dsf files containing this string.
  • Excludes. If Load All is selected, don't include .duf/.dsf files containing this string.

We want to import the three laying poses and build an action from them. Therefore we change Action Name to Laying (the name of the action), turn on Load All, and set Includes to Laying.





A new action called Laying is create, and the first three frames contain keys for the three loaded poses.
