I'm trying to convert a poser5 figure to povray 3.5. Poseray is a huge help,
but I do not know how to convert trans maps and Eye textures (see p.b.i.).
I tried a lot and read the manual but now I think I need a little bit help..

Can anyone give me a hint?

Thanks in advance,

Robert

Well, I always discard the texture code produced by the converters and
reworks it from scratch, keeping only the texture names... When it's done
once, it's reusable for other posers of the same model. For transmaps, I use
code like the following one :

#declare T_Hair=texture {
        image_pattern{jpeg "AliceHairTR.jpg" interpolate 2}
        texture_map{
            [0 pigment{Clear} finish{ambient 0 diffuse 0}]
            [1 pigment {image_map{jpeg "AliceHairTX.jpg" interpolate 2}  }]
        }
 }

Poseray has become sophisticated and more recent versions make actually
produce this sort of code, I don't know.

About the eye problem, there are Poser models that require a completely
transparent texture for the Eyeball part (and sometimes upper eyebrows too).

Hi Gilles,
thank you very much for your hint. The problem with the eyes is now solved.
However, I tried your tip for trans textures but I came up with the attached
picture.

Can you give me a clue, please?

Robert

Try to invert the order of the textures in the texture_map. The eyelashes
are here so the uvmapping works at least. It could be something else but
it's hard to say without the map. If the trick doesn't work, give me the
name of the trans map, as I probably have it too.

Gilles,
tried your suggestions. Seems not to work. I converted just normal Judy high
form Poser 5 to an obj file. The map files are corresponding to the Poser 5
textures...

The following works for me with Judy (converted with Poseray) :
#declare Eyelashes=
texture {
    image_pattern{jpeg "JudyLashTransHi.jpg" interpolate 2}
    texture_map{
        [0 pigment{Clear}]
        [1 pigment{Black}]
    }
}

Thanks a lot for your help.
I have to say that I use Moray and imported the obj file with the 3Dwin
plugin. I was a little bit puzzled about the Clear command in the pigment
environment. However, when I use the following it works fine.

Thanks,

Robert





#declare T_Eyelashes =
      texture
      {
         image_pattern
         {
               jpeg   "JudyLashTransHi.jpg"
               interpolate 2
         }
         texture_map
         {
            [0.0
               pigment
               {
                  color rgbt <1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0>
               }
            ]
            [1.0
               pigment
               {
                  color rgb <0.0, 0.0, 0.0>
               }
            ]
         }
      }

Glad it works.
"Clear" is just the name of the transparent color in the standard colors.inc
include file.
