Alot of the tutorials are for older versions of DS . Are the versions for DS 4 the same concepts as for 4.5? I need some detailed help and am not finding it unless someone with lots of experience has time to mentor???

    Basically everything...I haven't used DS since version 3 and didn't use that much. Now it's like starting over completely, the program has changed alot. All the tutorials I have read through seem to assume you know alot already. I need a step by step. I installed the program and the genesis essentials but products that show in content library aren't in smart stuff...products that the tutorial say are there aren't there anymore (ie genesis morphs don't include expressions anymore) I installed V5 also so far. It just seems complicated going through folders in different places and only finding products in one and not the other, and not finding things where I think they should go. DS 4.5 doesn't seem to have a manual and like I said the tutorials just seem to skim through the steps. Also the read me files aren't available for all products anymore?

    I will just keep searching around and install one thing at a time and trying to find all the parts before I install the next product.

    Trial and error *Ho Hum*

    Most of these issues arise from people not watching where content gets installed to, generally. All Genesis morphs should go in to the same content directory...it doesn't matter where this folder is located as long as it isn't in Program Files.

    Assuming your content has been installed correctly then lets try this for starters.

    Whilst in the Scene Pane follow the numbered images in sequence with restarting Daz Studio after step 3 and then do step 4. See how that goes. If it doesn't work then we need to look deeper.

    When I installed my content i went through custom install to see the path of installation and it is in my documents/my library/...sorry I don't have my computer as I am at work...the program itself is in Program files I believe...whatever the default install is. What about files that have no meta data? they won't show up in smart content...only in the content library?

    Correct. Without MetaData they are not Smart. Content Library is the only option for that content, or make your own Metadata which is not easy at all.
