Do not render my model in Carrara or any other software without my permission, WTF?

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!!!

Darn!  So the Millennium Cow can only be rendered in Etch-A-Sketch?

no Sockratease! just the work of someone full of cow pats!!
he also has a habit of frequently posting threads praising himself that no-one replies to!
you meet some funny characters on other 3D forums!

funny thing is I never considered wanting to render any of his stuff, only doing what I am for the beta test.
I much prefer nicer Daz vendor made models!

Oh how I wish whatever software it is wasn’t beta. I’m curious to see this guy’s self-praise. I could use a good chuckle. raspberry

Although, he’d hate me. I’d probably render his stuff in every program I can think of, including Photoshop Extended, just to be a smartass. LOL

Sideways and upside down to boot! *evil grin*

In fact, I’d render renders of his models holding other renders of his models. lol

It is common in the 3D market place that a license has to be bought for each software program that a model will be used in.
Many stores will charge a bundle price for a multi use license.
Even at Daz you are only buying a licence to use a model that has many restrictions on it’s use.

Ive seen people only provide one format for a model, and sell other formats (Vue, 3ds etc) as separate products, but I’ve never seen a licence that forbids the use of a model to only one software. Considering how many software packages come with exporters for various other softwares it all seems a bit stupid.


Maybe I just don’t buy enough models from other marketplaces?

Ive seen single user and single workstation licenses, but never anything as restrictive as this!

I should re-release my Fractal Freebies with the restriction that they may only be used if a Cow is featured prominently in the image.

You got it all wrong!


The Cow likes it!


In reality, this is Mandelbulb Abuse.


A far more heinous crime.
