after replacing a dead hard drive i tried to reinstall Reality 1.2 - but it wont install. the documentation says NOT to change the default instalation location, but when i try to instal, i get a message saying it cannot find DAZ Studio at that location, and to pick another location. i tried picking the folder where DAZ Studio resides, but i got error messages.
I also have another question. Will Reality work in DS4, or is it only designed to work in DS3.1? I see that there is a new product (Luxus) for use in DS4. If Reality is now obsolete, do Reality owners get a free upgrade to Luxus?
Also, does it matter where i put the LuxRender folders? I ask because the default instal location for that is in my Downloads folder.
Reality 1.2 does not work with DS4 but Reality 2.5 will work with DS4 and DS4 only, Reality 2.2 is the latest (and final) upgrade for DS 3
Reality is far from obsolete, a version 3 is in slated for production after Reality 3 for Poser is released this month.
If you are having trouble with the install you may want to ask here
No it does not matter where LuxRender is installed (windows) up to version 1.0, then believe it needs to go in your “programs folder” structure in windows, meaning don’t try to run it off the desktop unless it’s a shortcut to something in the programs folder. However if you are using Reality 1.x I don’t think you can use LuxRender past version 0.9, you would need to upgrade to Reality 2 which would be discounted or free depending on when you bought Reality 1.
UPDATE: I pointed out to the developer of Reality that there were two different price updates on his page and he decided instead of making them both the same he would lower the upgrade price to $9.95
