Hello Brycers! I'm IceScribe, and I have been using Bryce since version 5.0. Saw a copy of it at a CompUSA store, and then the store and the software disappeared after a while. I came to DAZ a while back because I saw that Bryce was alive and well here, and downloaded 5.5 immediately. I have the Bryce 7 Pro since it came out, and I'm sure it still has more features than I've discovered. I just have to say I really like the quality of the renders and the sort of light effect it has.
From there I naturally ventured into DAZ just at the cusp of V2 becoming V3 and was very confused. I finally realized part of my confusion was I needed a bigger faster computer than I had. A birthday surprise gave me that, and since then I've enjoyed posing Vicky and Mike and exporting them to Bryce. I was amazed to find the Bridge later that imported the textures. That saved hours! That's from DAZ3 to Bryce 7, Daz 4 is very iffiy. If I only use the Genesis built ins, it works, any other older stuff, it crashes. I don't mind DAZ 3 as it works for me to get stuff into Bryce. I don't know how to render in DAZ, and I prefer the Bryce 360 option rather than a stage backdrop.
Even after all this time, I'm no expert so I'm looking forward to learning and sharing here on the forum.
