I just downloaded it at work and upgraded from 3. I have had lots of problems with the versions since then. I could not find stuff. The redraw as messed up, you can see my posts on that.
But to my surprise I have not had any of the problems I have had in the past. I have had GIMP Bryce and Daz open at the same time and as long as I do not try to much no problems. Yes if I render something to complicated Daz and or Bryce crashes. But I just have to remember that.
I just started using bryce and am finding it very interesting. I am good with GIMP and textures so that helps but I never made models except ones in Google sketch up.
I found that in GIMP with cloud brushes I can make some very interesting mountains by painting my own Terrain canvas and importing the image. Using gradient I can make a nice sloping hill. Anyway I am sure that in Bryce you can edit them but I am very good a GIMP and have not figured out how to edit as precise in Bryce. Guess this should be in Bryce but it is just a comment.
So thanks Daz for fixing it up!
I am illustrating a book from a story my daughter wrote when she was 7 and was having lots of trouble getting past the final parts.
