27 hours!?

Mine redlines if it takes 27 minutes! Which it can on a good day. You must have quite a set up if you can leave it going for that long.

CHEERS!

PS (I hope I like tomorrow’s new release when I get it to get 50% off everything else I want.)

Oh noes! Does it crash out? Good luck with the sale . That was rendered on an old Apple Mac Pro with Xeon processors, doesn’t seem to have any problems with heat. Quite hot weather here right now as well.  smile

It doesn’t crash, it just runs really hot. A common thing on HP’s laptops so I’m told. It’s only when running scans and doing renders that it heats up, the rest of the time it’s fine. I got it because it had a dedicated card and a built in one. I use the dedicated for Vue and Poser and the built in for everything else.

It runs like a dream since I deleted all the manufacturer bloatware. This, I might add, is something you can ONLY do when the warranty has expired.

CHEERS!

I didn’t do too badly in the sale, $85 worth ended up costing just under $60 so that’s a reasonable saving in my book. I’m not entirely sure whether Guillaume Hair was included in the offer as you only got a record of the full discount in the total and not item by item. Mind you, I’m terrible at maths so it might have been anyway!

Renders of my haul to follow in due course….

CHEERS!

Maybe,

I’m champing at the bit to upgrade to Windows 8 while there is still a cheap offer on. However, a chap on here said that PP2012 crashed whenever he loaded and tried to pose a DSON’ed Genesis figure when running Windows 8. I’ve been firing off suggestions, but, he’s disappeared without anyone knowing if the issue was sorted or not.

Smith Micro say it’s not a Poser issue and Daz say that not many people have Windows 8 where they are and so they haven’t really tested DSON in it. To top that, Microsoft told me that I don’t qualify for their cheapest upgrade, even though I filled everything I knew to be correct in on the registration form. I could still do it for £24.99, but, I don’t particularly want to till I know that DSON won’t crash on me!

Rendering has slipped a bit in my priority list.

Such fun!

CHEERS!

It’s SOOO frustrating!

I really want to do it before Christmas so I can at least have a few free days to play around before the festive season kicks in. All I can think is just to go for it and take my chances. Previous issues with DSON have been where they haven’t installed it properly in the first place. I never really had that problem.

If something does go wrong I can at least file a bug report and get Daz on the case to check their little darling out in Windows 8.

As Captain Oates said: “I may be some time…...”

CHEERS!

I have DSON woes of my own, stuff seems to randomly not save as expected, don’t understand the error log either so feel extremely newbie and clueless but luckily being a mac and a poserpro user I’m not having flash problems \o/ so swings and roundabouts- is a jungle out there hey

Pretty cool looking scene,

So, what doesn’t save exactly, do you mean scenes or .cr2’s? I haven’t had problems with either, so describe what’s up and I’ll see what I can do. Though not in Windows 7!

Yep, dan, dan, DAAN, I decided to go for it and am now downloading Windows 8 Pro!! If there’s DSON issues I can go and kill Daz later!

CHEERS!

I retreated from Windows 8 faster than a cheetah with an appetite. I’m sure it’s a lovely piece of software once you get past the thousand and one technical hitches and changes, but after scouring every corner of the internet for a way to permanently shutdown the Windows 8 touch interface I gave up and went back to my old friend Windows 7. I hope you’ll have better success than I did.

Well, it’s done, I made it!

I had to find a Windows 8 driver for my laptop and graphics card, which wasn’t easy as neither HP or AMD had any, but, I managed to find one and it worked!

I just ran PP2012, loaded M5, posed him and…........ NO PROBLEMS!!!!! YAAAAAY!

It’s all fine and dandy now and I’m a happy bunny! I’m knackered and my cooling fan is running, so, I’ll just run CCleaner and then I’ll give it a rest till tomorrow.

CHEERS!

PS (There’s an app called Classic Shell which means you can always boot to the desktop.)

There are no available drivers which work with my onboard sound, meaning I have to use a USB plug and play headset to get any audio with Windows 8. Windows 8 shows it as playing audio, but the audio jack simply doesn’t output anything from neither front nor rear ports. It also has this annoying habit of force updating, with no means to postpone it or back out once it starts. Classic Shell is useful for getting straight to the desktop, but it doesn’t disable the touch interface start menu, which is still needed for a few operations. Also, while it might look like the classic desktop I know and love, there are too many differences which irritate me.

Long story short, it’s not for me. It would be great if it were on a touch device, but on a desktop it needs to behave more like a PC and less like an Android tablet.

I,m glad this thread is back, but I have one question, Reading all the posts, I get the impression it’s only for Poser. Is there a realistic,,, not thread for Daz?

I think the renders are great but I have one issue.

All of the renders look pretty realistic to me! If you inserted some of them in the proper background, I know a lot of people, including me would think they are real people (which is pretty fantastic).

Am I missing the point?

The trick to it is knowing where to look, basically, if you google the make of PC, you can find drivers. It was on a discussion forum that I found links to the drivers I needed for my graphics cards. The manufacturers themselves have been VERY slow on the uptake where Windows 8 is concerned. Hopefully that situation could change.

Anyhow, if it’s not for you, it’s not for you. I try and embrace new things as much as I can and so far, so good.

CHEERS!
