...@jimszombie: yes I do as well as even Bryce on occasion since Daz Studio is incapable of supporting environmental generation. I agree it is a shame these two programmes (particularly Carrarra after the attention it received a couple years ago) are being left to die slowly.
Bryce seriously needs 64 bit support.
Their dedicated modeller, Hexagon (which Daz still sells), is a lost cause as it hasn’t been updated for over Five Years and still has a number of vexing bugs which need fixing.
Yet instead, we get “supermodel” Vicky6 and a “hamstrung” Genesis.
Just shows what really “sells” (and it ain’t “ease of use”). Look at the clothing content in the Pro Bundle alone, most of which is what many here refer to as slut/skankwear. Look at the additional clothing offered, more of the same. The footwear? All spike heeled. Even the name of the pose set included: Casual Sexy Poses for Genesis 2 Female(s).
...and of course, the tone of the promos. Yeah,makes one wonder where this is really targeted..
As to “simplicity” of the app, Daz Studio has actually become much more complex over the years since when I first started with it, with IDL lighting tools, new surfacing tools (like US and most recently SSS), and even Open SubD. Yet it still is lacking in features a number of us (those “disgruntled hobbyists” again) have asked for like “open ended” cloth dynamics that it’s main competitor has.
...well it’s late, I’m tired (considering all the typos I had to fix) and this whole Geneisi2 Vicky6 thing is becoming rather discouraging to me from what I have read between the lines.
Maybe you’re right, Daz is changing course and leaving many of us behind in the wake. Sad, very sad.
