Issues With DS4 Addressed In 4.5?
There's been a lot for me to like in DS4 - namely, the "auto-fit" feature that allows me to use all the legacy clothing items I've aquired since V3. Not perfect - and not great if one is attempting photo-realistic renders, but for my "cartoon" work, it does quite well.
That said, DS4 is a HORRIBLE resource hog. I have a high-end machine with 8 GB of RAM, but whenever I attempt to load more than four figures, the application slows to a crawl.
Has this been addressed? Will any of the GenX plug-ins and the auto-fit still work in 4.5?
Other annoyances - the way the feet and hands get deformed when I apply certain non-Genesis poses (yes, I have the fix for this, but it's still an extra step) and the way figures periodically "jump away" when I select a body part and attempt to move a parameter dial.
Mostly however, I want to know if I will still be able to open my old scene files with 4.5 once it's overwritten 4.0. This is the one thing I have HATED about DS - if you wind up re-installing the application or upgrading to a new version, old scene files won't open anymore (unless you want to go through the scene tab and re-load everything, then copy and paste - and with a scene containing dozens of props and figures, this get's VERY cumbersome).
