What’s going on with Carrara?
It’s busy rendering as we speak!!!
No… I’m worried too, CAD. Good to hear from you again - been a L O N G time, it seems.
Wish it were under better circumstances.
Okay, here goes.
We’ve all seen long periods of silence before from Daz.
They never seem to mean anything bad by it - and, when it’s all over, most of us understand why it is that they had to hold their tongues.
When there’s this much silence, it is obvious that it is forbidden territory to post to the forum - period.
So, that’s why they sent poor little Britney, Bless her heart - who likely doesn’t even have a clue to what’s going on. Doesn’t matter. She was sent to type in a one-liner and get out.
So far, whenever they return to the pages, we’re all happy to see them back and share in the new news of the day.
I, for one, truly hope that this is, once again, the case.
I must also point out, as opposition to some of your above points, however.
Every time they launch a new product in the store, so long as it’s not DS Materials, lights or cameras, it works for Carrara.
Some might say not long enough DB
Real life - work and depression have taken their toll, my arms can attest to that.
Not trying to bash Daz, I am one of those people who likes to know what is going on, and with many people leaving Daz for what ever reason has me concerned.
I know if a product supports poser it can be used in Carrara but it all seems to be for Genesis at this time, How they can say its the industry standard and widely supported is beyond me, but I suppose that is marketing for you :p
Even if DAZ decides to bring 8.5 out and end further develpoment or look for a buyer tomorrow, doesn’t mean that Monday if you try and open Carrara nothing will happen. As long as you can open and use Carrar, your investments are still viable.
I’ve always seen a low number of Carrara specific products in the store by DAZ. The plugin developers on the other hand seem to be fairly active. Even Fenric didn’t give up on Carrara- just the DAZ store.
So now we have two threads bitching about the possible end of Carrara- Yours and Manstan’s thread about leaving. I’ve already read one comment by a new user alarmed by the doom and gloom. These threads that rely on FUD and hyperbolic topic titles are a great way to grow the user base and possibly show DAZ that Carrara is viable.
I don’t mean to be harsh, and I’m no Pollyanna, but isn’t there a way to discuss these very valid issues without all the drama and doom and gloom as if the world were coming to an end? Do we really need two or three threads a month rehashing the same non-information again and again?
Where did I say I was leaving? I said I was concerned with the silence and lack of communication from daz, and was asking if anyone knew things seeing I have been away from 3D in general
Don’t tar me with the same brush as stan
My depression may going cycles much like his leaving posts but that is all we have in common
