It’s been months since we’ve heard anything new about Carrara.  Why would that be?


Could it be that, after seeing DAZ products used on TV in a re-creation of the raid on bin Laden, DAZ was attacked by terrorists?

This will either be a fun, light-hearted thread…or it will devolve into mud-slinging and silly accusations (who? us? NOOOO!!!  wink  ).

Seriously? No, not the terrorists bit…the products being used on TV. Which show was that?

In other news, after what DAZ officials described as “credible threats”, Victoria 5 and Michael 5 have been moved to an undisclosed location.

I think silence is more easily explained by the rule that says “Don’t say anything until you have something positive and/or definite to say”, which is a good rule for businesses. But your theory is certainly worth considering.

Incidentally, you know that Mr Sparky offers a free model of the late unlamented Mr Bin Laden’s house? (search in page for “Pakastani Mansion Building” [sic]).

This is certainly nothing more then my candid opinion.

The delay of C8.5 rests squarely on the shoulders of studio 5. With the DAZ devs working to get the communications between studio and carrara working relatively smoothly, they will have to get things working right in studio before they can work on the pipeline to carrara, then get back to working on carrara.
I’d say DAZ has no devs working on carrara now because what few they have are working on genesis and studio. I think we will have to concede that carrara comes after studio, genesis, and content.

I gave up long ago on DAZ putting any real developmental time on carrara; out side of getting their latest money pit working in it. At one time carrara was close to C4D, 3DS, and lightwave. DAZ has consistently dropped the ball on carrara development, and fallen so far behind, that now it isn’t even competitive with freeware; as far as available working features.

I will now return you to what I am sure will turn in to cutesy, light hearted drivel to obscure the actual issue. So feel free to post your lolcats so the issue can be properly obscured.

Well, I agree with you up to about 75% of that sentiment. There are times when it is good to make an announcement. If nothing else, to test possible market reaction. Or allay fears of vapourware (honestly, that thought about C8.5 is more persistent in my mind these days).

Garstor, I can’t remember the name of the show, but they were clearly DAZ products. One was M4 with the standard texture and unmorphed face.

And there was me thinking all staff at DAZ3D had been accepted in to the BWC and is now plotting world domination.

I did DVR one program about SEAL Team 6—I don’t recall seeing M4 used in it though. Maybe I’ll watch it again to be sure.

ManStan: I have little doubt about the accuracy of your view. I think DAZ has poured its resources into DS and has pretty much kicked Carrara to the curb. Damn cryin’ shame…

I’m certain the delay has more to do with development of The Millennium Cow than anything else.

But since you asked for them…

I can agree with almost all of what you’re saying except for the last paragraph. If you want to see a near constant gripe about Carrara’s 8.5 release, when it will or won’t be, it’s shortcomings, etc. etc. etc. Then you need look no further than the C8 beta thread stickied at the top of the forum page, or the threads that seem to pop up every time the beta gets close to expiring. I’m not saying people should stick their head in the sand, but sometimes there needs to be a little levity to relieve the stress and anxiety around here. To be honest, when I saw the thread, my initial reaction was to roll my eyes and exclaim, “again?!?” I was relieved to see it was a more humorous take on the situation.

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.
