Well got the DS files loaded in 3 and yep they are FUBAR,the only reason the wand has any color is that it only uses diffused color ,no texture file,but I tried reloading the texture files,which it said were there and nothing I even tried changeing cameras( just in case) but the poser format stuff will work in DS3 so that good to know .......and the plus is thanks to your question I found the fairy antennea I was looking for so that a plus all the way around.

EDIT: I purchased the 3D starter pack. The ‘poser’ files for individual items work very nicely in DAZ Studio 3.1

The 3D Starter pack is supposed to come with two pre-made scenes. (see picture). I can’t find them. Can somebody tell me the names of the files for the pre-made scenes?

You should be able to find them in the content folder, in a Scene folder ........

I hunted for them using both DS3 and DAZ 4, and had no luck, so I did a directory search for all the folders named ‘content’ and looked inside them. I didn’t see any folder named ‘scene’.

I then did a search for folder name ‘scene’  I have no folders named ‘scene’, but I had several named ‘scenes’. Unfortunately none of them contained the pre-made scenes.

If you have the files, what are the file names and extensions?

I do not have the set,  but I did have a look at the product page,  and it’s listed as environment props,  so you might want to look under the PROPS header,  and perhaps under either DAZ or Environments

I appreciate that fact that you are trying to help me. The PROPS are is where the individual items in the forest scene are located. I’m looking for the complete pre-made complete scenes that the bundle is supposed to have.

I’ve been seriously hunting for the completed scenes, and I am getting frustrated.

Can somebody who actually has the bundle help me?

very respectfully,
fleetpp

fleetpp I know you are getting frustrated ,there should have been 2 installers ,1 for DS stuff, and 1 for Poser stuff, you installed both of them??
In the Scenes folder (I forgot to add the “s” last time) look for Faerie Forest Day and Faerie Forest Night ,

Let me make this perfectly clear; the complete pre-made scenes are NOT in a scenes folder.

I’ve attached a screenshot of the installers I downloaded and ran.

Please,please, please, just tell me what the file names are. You can right click on the icons that you have and browse to file directory and it should show you the file names. If the files ascii files?
very respectfully,
fleetpp

I’ve submitted a ticket to Tech Support. If I don’t hear from them soon I’ll contact Sales and request a refund.

I wonder what their response will be…because I’ve had that thing for ages.  I think I got it back in 2007 ( Sept of 2007, along with the 3D Bridge and Aiko 3.0…), when it was free.  I haven’t reset the download on it in a long time.  But I do know that the last time I installed it, it had the Poser files.  I haven’t tried loading any of the scenes in DS4,x, but I think they worked in 3…

The listing you posted, looks like it’s gone through a major update…it wasn’t until recently that metadata was being included. So, it looks like the ‘bundle’ has been broken down into it’s individual components.  They may have intentionally removed the scenes, since they are one of the ‘problems’...whether they are gone, permanently or just not present, because they are being updated, who knows.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

If DAZ removed the scenes from the bundle, IMO the promotional paragraph should NOT have included the statement that two pre-made scenes are included.
