I am currently halfway through the implementation of those extension mechanisms for Khayyam. The most important ones - materials and poses mostly work now in CVS version and the results are really worth seeing.
Normally you start from plain base figure. As an example I use here the most famous one - DAZ Victoria 4 freely available from DAZ webpage.

Next let's load a predefined pose to make it a bit more lifelike.

A bit better, but still ugly.
Now we import custom materials.
|Materials, swimwear and hair|
There is more Khayyam can already do - like apply morphs.
|Closeup of face with eyes targeted and mouth morphed|
Materials can be applied one on top of another - like eye color or makeup separately from main body texture. Transparent hair is a bit messed up in Khayyam, but will render properly if exported.
And last a quick render of the same figure with POV-Ray (different hair material and pose):
