    • Animation Range -
      • Current Frame Only: When selected saves only the current frame, even if the animation timeline has multiple keyframes associated with it.
      • Animated Range: When selected, saves out the designated frames associated with the timeline. Enter the Start frame and End frame to set where the animation export starts and ends.
    • Data -
      • Record All: When selected, saves all transform, translation, and morph settings that are currently on the selected figure.
      • Record Custom: When selected, activates the Property Listing for the selected figure where you can select specific properties to same For example, if you made a hand pose, you don't want to save the properties for the entire figure, just those for the hand.

          Choose whether to select or deselect all Channels, Morphs (see caution below), Transforms, or Modified settings.

icon-caution.jpg CAUTION! The Select All Morphs option selects only the morph channels in the body parts and not in the body. Full-body morph channels (i.e. 'valueParm' channels in the Poser File) are not selected by the 'Select all Morphs' box. This is simply because 'valueParm' channels can be used for any purpose. Currently, it is necessary to manually select the desired FBM channels from the list.

  1. Click on Accept to save the preset or on Cancel to cancel the operation.
