I am a PC member and somehow I never saw it there either .......I think it’s time to get my prescription for my glasses checked, that’s fersure.

Judging from post dates, it was in a hidden forum for just the artists for a couple of weeks, then moved to Members Only yesterday for a brief preview, then moved to Commons today for the actual release.

Not interested in the giant leap backwards that is “Genesis 2”.

...OK, nine pages in, yet no one has yet dared to ask the single most important burning question in the Dazverse…

Is there or will there be an unflatable morph? cheese


Seriously, this really looks good and can’t wait to see futureTri-Ax critters.  A fully weight mapped cat, which could finally bend like the real thing, would be so cool.

My cat has not done that, but she totally would. O_O

I am certainly happy with the new Horse 2 Pro Bundle. I did this render in Reality.

Spent so much time installing that I only have time for a quick DS4.5Pro test-render before bedtime, but I like the way it turned out:

No, it’s a TriAx figure and needs DS4 or Poser 9/Poser Pro 2012 with the DSON Inporter

What if I load it in DS4, then export it as a CR2? Will I be able to load and use it in DS3, then?

No, because the CR2 will be exported with weight maps for use in Poser 9/PP2012 and DS3 will ignore them (and wouldn’t be able to use them if it didn’t) so you’d probably find no bending at all - each bone would bend as a block. There isn’t a way to get from a weight-mapped rig to an old-style parametric rig, as far as I know - it would be like converting an arbitrary image to a gradient.


grrrrrr ....

I guess it’s one more series of products I won’t be buying then.

I don’t like DS4 ...

Considering you do this commercially i would think you’d be more open minded to having a more efficient and faster workflow which is what DS4 will give you over DS3, it did mine.

I’ve tried ... it really, really slows me down. So much of my stuff is missing or doesn’t work in DS4. And I am not a fan of genesis at all. I’ll have to eventually make a switch ... but to what is uncertain, since I don’t like poser, either ... lol. I can list two good things about the upgrade, but all of the pitfalls for me are not worth the small gain.

I know many say it’s faster, but I know many who have some of the same frustrations I have. Like anything else ... I’ll have to create the best work I can with the medium that actually works for me :D

It’s working pretty good in Carrara 8.5

I’ve already used this more today than all the time I’ve had the milHorse 1

Beautiful, Stezza!! I need to find time to play with the new beastie! I’ve been working with him a load, but really haven’t had time to really play with him yet. I really do think DH2 is a serious improvement over the Mil Horse and offers much more potential. As someone on a Mac I’ve always steered clear of D/S as as it usually crashed all the time, but DS 4.5 is the best version I think they’ve ever had, at least for Mac. The 3 things I find most frustrating about DS (and could be from a lack of knowledge on my part) is what I see as shadow setting limitations/softer shadows (can’t set the amt of shadow the way you can in Poser… again just maybe I can’t find out how to do that) and lack of ability to set camera perspectives (wide angle vs more telephoto for example)  the way you can in Poser. Also that a camera view doesn’t “stick” when a file is closed and then re-opened. The Poser 9 interface is a huge let down to me anyway after P7 IMO. It lost so much interface elegance in particular, detrimentally impeding my workflow as well.

Shire horse morph, mmmm. Well, Finnhorse is going to be interesting, if I can get around it to do it.
