Thank you for your considered reply…
I have actually started using Genesis in Studio 4 Pro, and rendering in Lux via Reality. and although I swore I would never use Studio, I applied myself to the program and now actually rather like it, Genesis naturally works brilliantly in it, but more than that V4 bends better in Studio, plus all the fix morphs etc work without having to jump through hoops.
Studio 4 Pro has some great features, the smoothing modifier is just amazing…Carrara REALLY needs that.
Now I have been a Carrara user for 7 years. I love the program and until 6 montha ago, wouldn’t render or produce scenes in anyhting else but Carrara.
But I will be frank with you. I find it it highly unlikely that many Studio users will go from from Studio to Carrara, a free software to a paid one, that doesn’t make sense.
Plus if you consider the plugins that are being developed for Studio, the gap between the two softwares is closing rapidly, Carrara looks more and more anomilous in the Daz setup.
What I am saying is.. that to Survive I believe Carrara needs to be MORE than just a content management package, as there are other softwares that do that better, thats why I was hoping that this next release paves the way for more than just more content management.
But we shall see..
