TDMT Morph Transfer
That Darned Morph Thing

(Site updated 10-11-11)

 TDMT is a PoserPython script set which allows transfer of morphs between actors with incompatible geometries.

Script maintained by Cage.
Developed by Cage and Spanki (Spanki and Cage), with contributions by odf.
Ray-casting functions by Spanki.
Web space provided by phantom3D.

Some of these scripts can utilize Spanki's _tdmt.pyd for greater speed.
The .pyd will not work on Poser versions less than 7.0, or on the Mac OS, or on Poser versions greater than 8.
All scripts will work without the .pyd.

The scripts in this set are no longer being actively developed, but they have been updated for use with Poser 9 and Poser Pro 2012, as of 10-11-11.
The _tdmt.pyd is no longer being updated and is not compatible with the version of Python used by P9 or PPro2012.  
The .pyd should not be installed for Poser 9 or Poser Pro 2012! 

TDMT Scripts - These are the core scripts in the TDMT tool set.
