    I've collected some free 3DS props from around the net. Sometimes when I import them into poser, something strange happens: two identical images of the prop appear. They are actually the same prop in poser, manipulating one manipulates the other. I've seen this several times. Has anyone else seen this phenomenon, and if so do you know if it is correctable? I can upload an example if necessary.

    Do you also have Bryce? Maybe use Bryce to convert it frm 3ds to OBJ?
    I have not seen this problem, so no real help.

    There's an old version of Bryce lying around, but I don't know how to use it. How do I convert a Bryce file to an obj? Just "save as"?

    No, you import the file (3ds, etc)
    then you select the mesh (selected by default). If it is not grouped, group it (ctrl + g to group) but it is grouped by default.
    Select EDIT (ctrl + E or click on the small E by the mesh)
    enter CTRL + D and select the format you want to export in.
    I know this works in 5 and above. I believe it works in Bryce 4 as well.
