I am beta testing an unnamed (shshsh it is a secret) software pipeline that enables me to get animated meshes out of it in FBX form into other programs inc Carrara.
have been posting renders on YouTube.
I cannot reveal details as it is on a secret beta forum but came across an interesting attitude by one vendor in that software suite which differs from ANYTHING I have EVER encountered at Daz 3D among vendors!
he explicitly does NOT want his mesh rendered in ANY other software except the one he made it for unless one seeks his permission.
and this is content he has sold!
he went on to say that he would imagine Daz content makers would feel the same way!
I corrected him!
as I pointed out EVERY vendor here who’s work I have rendered in said unnamed software has been thrilled to see me using their model which I purchased to produce rendered artwork!!!
often asking about the program and showing interest in it.
While redistributing mesh and textures a no no, and some freebie stuff non-commercial only this is the first time I have encountered a bought model being restricted to use in only one 3D software suite.
needless to say, I am glad I never bought any if his content, much less dared render it in Carrara!
I just had to share this because we do not know how good we have it at Daz 3D!!!
