    BTW, Niki, does your plugin do any bone rigging or add morph channels (ala PoseMixer) from the Poser file?  Basically, I'm only writing this plugin because I haven't found anything else that does.  There is one for LightWave, but I am not too partial to LightWave and the results still need some work after loading the Poser file.

    No my plugs do not do any bones stuff

    I'm primary draw Comic book

    At the base is to use poser 5, but it dont work so I go back to C4D r8, I use to have the r7, but R8 give more then a need for lights etc...

    For me C4D is a tools, but the plugins fron CL don work so, we do our own. I i give all for free...

    But as I say C4D is not a simple Porgram and not a toy...

    So we do those plugs for what i Need...

    So i use poser only for pose amnd morph , all rest is done in C4D All MAT's etc, can be 100 tiems better in C4D...

    So we do a plug base on OBJ, Why is faster from Poser...
    PZ3 files is to slow for what i need... I any question I'm here

    For your plug If you do Bones is nice and I will be interested, but to take a way poser Need :)

    These are some of the "deficiencies" of Poser about which I speak.  Lighting in Poser is very primitive, renders are not as good and slower, and although Poser rigging uses IK, it really is not the best IK.  C4D's IK and new Soft IK are much better (if not more complex to understand) especially for animation - which is the direction in which I'd like to head.  I've used Poser's animation tools, but did not find them very intuitive or stable and this can be attested to by the fact that there are so very few Poser animations out there.
    And, as you say, the plugin from CL isn't good at all.  That's why some of us are taking on this ourselves. :)
    I'm grateful for your help so far and it's great that you make your plugin available free of charge - which is amazing considering the amount of work involved, as I am finding out. ;)
    As for the PZ3 files, you'd be amazed at how fast you can parse them - even at 15MB or more.   Of course, my benchmark is on a 2.54GHz P4 w/1GB DDR memory, so it may be slightly biased! ;0)
    In my case, instead of parsing, setting, parsing, setting, I waste some memory and parse the entire file into appropriate classes (PoserScene, PoserCharacter, PoserObject (for props, actors, lights, and cameras), PoserFigure (added to PoserCharacter for rigging and hierarchy), PoserChannels (within each PoserObject), and so on).  Then all of the necessary information and, most importantly, the linkages (fields in the file that point to other actors, props) are set and available for building the scene.
    Poser, like C4D, is a tool.  In this case, I like the "extensions" (pre-configured characters) better than the tool itself.  Since these "extensions" can be fitted to work with another better tool, C4D, I am willing to spend time making the necessary adapter so that the extensions can be used there.

    In all actuality, I don't expect that a plugin that loads the bones and morphs from a Poser character will cause any damage or deterioration of Poser use itself.  There is already a plugin for LightWave that does all of this for all Poser files (PZ3, CR2, HR2, PZ2, etc) and haven't see any effect on the number of users of Poser.
    I guess, this is more of a challenge to me.  In the end, my knowledge of Poser and C4D will be enhanced by the research involved.  Also, I will finally be able to work on more "professional" quality animation without having to spend thousands for premade characters (with no morphs) or spending months making them myself.  Eventually, it will probably be more gratifying to create my own rigged characters, but for now it is more hindrance than advancement.

    Do you mean spread the contents out so that they are not too packed together?
    If you use Groups, you can use GroupBorderSpace(...) to put some space between them.  Since GeDialog layouts are done internally and automatically (like Java), you have to give it all of the objects (Text, Buttons, Groups, etc) either in the CreateLayout() method or in a dialog resource file.
    I use Groups the same way I use JPanels in Java - to divide and conquer the dialog display space into regions and to spread things out for a more easily interpreted display for the user.
    Let me know if I understood your question correctly.

    Use it in the flags field for the resource or flags argument for the method:
    AddStaticText(4001,BFH_CENTER|BFV_CENTER,0,0,GeLoadString(ERROR_MEMORY_TEXT),BORDER_NONE);

    Check out "Dialog resource" in the Help files for using flags in a resource.
    Also check out "Description resource" for Groups, Layout Layouts, etc. for dialog resources.
    Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other Dialog questions! :)
