DAZ 4.5 - Worth the Upgrade for Novices?
So I'm reading over all the new features filled with terminology way over my head and wondering if this is an upgrade worth my while as a novice.
Sounds like it's only going to benefit the working pros.
1. What are the new features or enhancements in the 3D Rendering Engine? Is it going to be faster or make for more realistic renders?
2. Also, something I still don't see mentioned anywhere are simple, common sense useability improvements(unless it's in the new GUI somewhere) like an "Open Recent" under File which would let people quickly load/access a recently opened file so we wouldn't have to go scrolling down through folders to find a DAZ scene file we were just working on a few hours ago or yesterday. And I've got a whole lot of those! The most recent 10 files listed would help me a lot.
Or a "History" tab where we can jump back to a change made a few seconds ago to several minutes ago. Right now, if you make more than just a change or 2 at the most, even if it's simply rotating a character or camera or 1 morph change, you lose the ability to jump back to a previous state or change. The only way you can do anything even remotely like that now in DS4 Pro is to save every change you make, even if you don't like the change. No real ability to go back more than a couple adjustments at the most, and not even a simple "Revert" option under File. Not even! Photoshop has had these features for about a decade now. Seriously, how hard would it be to add these features for DAZ?! It would make things so much easier to do. Just simple, common sense things like that. Maybe not real sexy for the CG geeks, but still, for everyday usability, these things would be wonderful!
I could think of some other things, but those for starters would be a real help.
