It certainly looks enticing. But I’m still fuzzy on using the DIM so I have been reluctant to make purchases lately.

Oh yeah…DIM doesn’t know what to do with Carrara stuff…I blame old age for not recalling that.

Yep, you don’t need DIM to purchase and install content.

Yup, I had to get it as soon as I saw it.  Reminds me of a nice trip to this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hampton_Court_Maze

I also had to get “Country Lane 2” because ... can’t think of a reason.  Just got it.  Howie makes Carrara as good as Vue for landscapes.

I don’t even use Carrara (learning Daz Studio only at this point, and not that great yet especially with renders).  I’m not even sure what Carrara is or what it is supposed to do or capable of but just wanted to drop down in the Carrara section when I saw this maze and then I saw this tread.  I think this Maze is “amazing”.  I’m so tempted to look into Carrara just for this if nothing else.

*Ok, slobber mode off*

I just think it looks really great!  And there is something about it that I really, really like.  Lately, every time I see some amazing scenery, it has Howie’s name on it and then I see “Carrara” and am scared off lol.

Don’t fear it…embrace it! Carrara blows D|S out of the water.

You might say that I’m biased though…

The reason you don’t see Howie Farkes scenes in DAZ Studio is because D/S simply doesn’t have the capabilities needed to load the scene. Specifically, replicators, plant generators and most likely volumetric effects for the forest scenes.


Carrara is more of a full featured 3D suite if that makes sense. It has a Spline modeler, Vertex modeler, Meta-ball modeler, terrain generator, plant generator, true volumetric clouds, a powerful procedural shader system, natively loads Poser style figures and props, the Carrara 8.5 beta is working on introducing Genesis support and there are tons of other features that I haven’t even mentioned.


Go here to see some Carrara galleries and be sure to check out the Showcase Gallery and the best of 2012 Gallery. There are other user galleries there as well.

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.
