I cannot install.  I get an error message.  BTW, what happened to the bug tracker?

Could be a corrupted download, or the installer is not running as Admin.

Well, I have a question about using an area light and a sphere. I just up dated and was using the sphere for ibl, and now all of the sudden it doesn’t work!

So i looked for the video and that’s gone too!

What’s going on here? any ideas??

Area light or environment light, using uberEnvironment? Are you getting any error messages? What about if you view the log immediately after trying to render (Help>Troubleshooting>View log, scroll to the end)?

Spheres and Uber Area Lights and ... normals facing inward? There was something ... *wanders off to search*
...

oh, here:

DS4.5 doesn’t do the flip any more.
There is a free sphere with normals facing inward here:

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Yes, using a spehere with uberArea around the scene won’t work as the normals point outwards - scaling to -100% on one axis should work, as I recall.

Sorry, I was forgetting which way the fix went - you are quite right.

If it’s the image applied to sphere with uberArea issue then it’s just the way it is - though you could, I think, fix it by flipping the nomrals so that they pointed in - UV Mapper Classic will do that, as I recall, or pretty well any modeller.

You could load your original scene and exchange your sphere with this free one:

Apply the pic and you are ready to go.

is there a download link somewhere for the new version of DAZ pro, because im not sure i have put up an order and i was wondering if there was a link because in the homepage for the DAZ studio there was a “free download” thing and that kinda confused me.

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/14562/  It is all explained in the first post of this thread. And don’t worry, it is still a free download, but you do need to take it through the store purchase process if you have not done so before.
