Oh I will get both. I don’t have anything else to spend my money on except alcohol, women, fast cars and putting coins in the plate at C on Sundays. But seriously, yes I will. I would never desert Carrarara.
No offense to Headwax intended! A great artist and contributor to the community here, but I hope this thread dies a quick death.
Why? Because we get the same type of hand-wringing threads whenever there’s a new release of software that has feature overlap with Carrara. Usually it’s Daz Studio, but I’ve also observed the same thing with Bryce and DAZ’s other software. Not only D/S, but also C4D, Modo, and Blender. All these threads tend to do is throw doubt in the minds of any potential new users that poke their heads in here, and it’s usually all speculation, rumor and user anxiety.
Just remembe, the pixels are always less jaggy on the other side of the fence! That and just because you have Carrara doesn’t mean you can’t have Poser 2014- It will make a great plugin!
Heh, Evil, ah I wouldn’t take offence, what worries me is that Poser 2014 is pretty flashy - you know you can get the little balls to bounce in real time and make skittles fall over and things.
Basically what I am saying is that Poser 2014 could be everything that Carrara should have been.
If Daz was on the ball.
With 2014 I’m still expecting to have to fiddle with the sphere zones etc after conforming new clothing - which is a pita.
To me it’s Poser’s “answer” to genesis but instead of competing with genesis they have gone on a tangent that surprised everyone.
In other words they have targeted a more “professional” market. ( meaning people who want to get
their hands on nuts and bolts)
Which I think is where a lot of Carrara users are at - relative to Daz Studio users .
Yes I hate poser’s window and controls myself but that means I am not familiar with them (maybe I should read the manual!)
Explore Carrara? Ah yes, I have explored a few corners - just for Renders that is all. I am satisfied that I am reasonably proficient
with some aspects of Carrara - meaning wher I personally want to go.
Daz updating Carrara? Yes that is good.
But it appears from their attitude/past history that it is not their priority.
Poser seems to have Poser as it’s main priority.
I think there-in lies the Pith.
(whatever a pith is)
EDIt PS Evil, I forgot to say I use Poser 2012 as a plugin in for Carrara, most expensive plug in I have
