Hi all,

1. What is the difference between Mimic Pro and Mimic Live?

2. Could I export the animation data of Mimic Live into Carrara and Poser?

Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    About 1: Could you a bit more specific?
    (I ask, because you can find the description of both in the shop http://www.daz3d.com/shop/software/mimic/mimic-live/ and http://www.daz3d.com/shop/software/mimic/mimic-pro/)

    About 2:
    You can find more details for Mimic Pro here: http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/artzone/pub/software/mimic/start
    The PDF says

    Mimic is a stand-alone application designed to create lip-synched animations. It creates an output file which you can then render in a third-party application such as DAZ Studio or SmithMicro Graphics' Poser

    If I already have Mimic pro, do I need to buy mimic live?
    Does Mimic pro contain all function of mimic live?

    Mimic Live works from a live sound track, the user speaking into a mike, rather than from a recording as plain Mimic does.

    Please don't bump threads - at the moment it isn't doing anything, but when it does we will remove bumping posts.

    Mimic Pro is an application, not a plugin for DAZ Studio.

    I'm having trouble loading Mimic Live. Windows 8. Keep getting message. The installation path for DAZ Studio could not be found. Mimic Live cannot be installed. Set up will now quit.

    Does the version of Mimic Live you are trying to install match the version of DS you have installed?

    I've got a laptop with DAZ 4.6 and Windows 8 that loads Mimic ok. But my home pc, again with DAZ 4.6 and Windows 8 won't load. On the Installed Plugins menu I have 3 items for Mimic but called 'dzmimicrealtime. Each one has the red 'Failed' icon next to it.
