I think same thing about daz new duf save option.
I do not know clearly about every new ds 4.5 save options , so I think if use save as
support assets>“scene assets” option, can work to save the “scene” as they are.
I do not know,, when I try it, it ask me the product name,,vendor name,,
I just want to save it as they are,, not need to make product ^^;
but there is no documents , no official clear comments about each save option,
so user just try it and erroer, or lost their work . or just ask here,,^^;
some professional user and vendor understand how to use it correctly.
but I believe many (or half of) user do not understand the difference of each save options clearly.
I read many PDF or video tutorials of ds4, they say, “you should save the scene, if you hope to preserve your work”
about a few tutorilals sold in daz shop said same thing. some tutorial said ” you can keep your work if you save the scene”
but in ds 4.5, save the scene option never preserve the status of that time.
they just call each assets in the scene as their path and file name,
then apply the property value.
so if you change the assets, or tweak morph, or change the rigging , and save again,
the saved scene change too. I think it should not be called “save the scene”
if I tweaking figure weight or poligon grouping, or morph, then need to stop it.
so just save it as scene. after work,, lets continue rigging,, I load the scene,,
every my work has gone away.
of course I know now,, need to save as figure, or save as morph,, after tweaking and preserve the status.
and need to save it as different name, if I missed something and overwrite the assets as same name,
never get it buck though I save it as scene.
it is funny,, when think about genesis and his DNA morphs . if I delete one DNA morph, and get new DNA morphs,
every character in all saved scene now get the new DAN and lost same DNA at same time.
if I tweak the clothings and missed weight maps, the saved character may have poke through if they wear the clothing.
(I can not memorize, every items used in each saved scene,, so I need just preserve everything,,to keep the status
after save the scene,,,.)
I hope DAZ make other option to save the current status of all assets. so user who like duf scene , chosse duf scene.
but I want to save the scene as it were. before I can save it as .daz scene.
it is useful when try to adjust morphs . weight maps. surface groups , clothings,,
I do not want to save items which have not finished as new figure or new morph as many different name,,
