If I understand correctly, I do best to use the “My DAZ 3D Library” for Genesis, Genesis 2 and M5, V5 and above (and Young Teens and other genesis based creatures).
There seem to be a lot of people who make an M4 library, V4 library, S4 library, A4 library and so on. Would it be strange if if I make an V4 library and M4 library, and put S4 and A4 also in the V4 library and put H4 and The Freak 4 into the M4 library (since S4 and A4 are based on V4, and H4 and The Freak 4 are based on M4).
Or would it then make more sense to make an folder “Non-Genesis gen4 Library” and put V4, S4, A4, M4, H4 and The Freak 4 altogether in it. Apart from those I might also do some separe library’s for other content .
In this case I guess I would make/have the following Library’s
- My DAZ 3D Library (Genesis, Genesis2, M5, V5, M6, V6, Young Teens)
- Non-Genesis gen4 Library (V4, S4, A4, M4, H4, The Freak4)
- Creatures and Things (animals, creatures, and their animations, poses and props)
- Environments and Props (buildings, interiors, landscapes, furniture, machinery, weapons, lighting, plants, vehicles)
Would that be a good enough setup? there is much stuff which works for example on V4 as well as on S4 as well on A4.
In this case all the props and things are already scattered enough I think. The last to library’s are based on the categories in the shop which seems to make sense.
Do the library’s have any kind of influence in the way stuff pops up in the smart content pane?
There is some content which confuses me. “Carrara Hair Caps” and “Carrara Hair Caps for Genesis and Genesis 2” confuse me to where I have to install them. Do I have to place “Carrara Hair Caps” into the Carrara native content library (Don’t know exactly where that is) or in the “My DAZ 3D Library” where genesis will be placed, or does DIM choose the carrara native content library anyway wether I select something else or not. I guess that the “Carrara Hair Caps for Genesis and Genesis 2” has to be placed in the “My DAZ 3D Library”, or not?
The same problem with Bryce content.
I hope someone can answer these maybe simple problems. I am sure it is explained somewhere, but I guess I just missed it while reading the answer, there is such a huge amount of info that it is easy to miss some of it.
