Mirror My Pose (POSER)
A POSER mirror script which works with weightmapped characters and has been tested on various characters, Dawn, Dusk, V4, M4, Roxie, Rex and Star. It has NOT been tested on anything Genesis. There is a minor issue with eyes on the hivewire characters if you use the CTRL morphs to pose them, but it works fine if you set the poses using the actual dials.

TDMT Morph Transfer
"TDMT is a PoserPython script set which allows transfer of morphs between actors with incompatible geometries."
http://www.morphography.uk.vu/~cagepage/TDMT_Match/TDMT.html
Tutorials: http://www.morphography.uk.vu/~cagepage/TDMT_Match/old_tutorials/tutorials.html
TerrainMaker script
This Python script uses the built-in Python Image Library (PIL) and geometry-creation methods in Poser 9 or later (P9, Pro 2012, P10, Pro 2014, P11) to read an image map in PNG or BMP format and, based on the grayscale values of that map, build a polygon mesh with the lighter pixels being raised and the darker ones being lowered from the average. A plain black or white map would of course be flat, but a grayscale image with features painted on will generate a three-dimensional 64x64 mesh within your Poser scene that can be used for a landscape (or saved to the Props library, exported for use in other applications, etc.)

Utility Software

CR2 Editor 1.51
http://www.morphography.uk.vu/dlutility.html#CR2Editor or http://mystic-nights.com/freebies/details.php?image_id=317
Eye & Jaw Morph Fixer for Face Morphs
The Eye & Jaw Morph Fixer will correct warped morphs exported from tools such as FaceGen Artist or HeadShop for Daz Studio 4.x. Tools like FaceGen Artist or HeadShop can create realistic face morphs, but they may warp the eyes, jaw, and tongue in the process. This tool will zero out the morph deltas for the eyes, jaw, and tongue, so they are no longer warped. The tool also keeps the original scale and centers of each eye. This tool is free! (Windows 32/64-bit)
https://www.sharecg.com/v/88497/
Geometry Stripper (Windows Application)
pulls geometry out of a PP2 file, saves geometry as an OBJ file (or a set of OBJ files), and puts pointers to the OBJs in the PP2s.

OBJAction Mover
Used for many older file encodings, especially against Poser 4 content OBJs. Limited to OBJ morphs only.
https://www.renderosity.com/mod/freestuff/?item_id=158 or http://mystic-nights.com/freebies/details.php?image_id=319
Objaction Scaler 3c
Objaction Scaler is a Windows tool which facilitates the transfer of .obj files between Poser and other 3D packages such as Studio Max and RDS5. Objects within Poser are much smaller than in other 3D packages, by a factor of around a thousand or so. This can lead to problems either with minuscule objects in Max and RDS5, or brobdingnagian objects in Poser. In either case bizarre results can arise when editing or manipulating the objects. The use of Objaction to either reduce or enlarge the object prior to transfer eliminates these problems.

This utility is needed to decode certain morphs before their first use. Can also encode/decode many other file types.
