With all of the amazing new products coming available for Genesis 1, I can see that this wonderful figure has made its place in the stream of how things shall be! Yaaaay! Well, I actually had that good feeling all along. DAZ3D had just made a major shapes release of several ‘Monstrosities” just before the release of Genesis 2 Female. I love those big bad monsters! I am also equally as pumped about Genesis 2! I’m the sort of content user (needer) that prefers a good selection. Genesis is a huge selection, but Genesis 2 is so heroic. Gia is one bad chick! Girl 6 is gorgeous - well, so is Girl 5, 4 and the original “The Girl”. I own and love them all. Well, I will be owning G6 as soon as they launch her… she’s the hottest ‘The Girl’ yet! Did you see those PC sneak peeks? Yikes! Ouch!
Ringo keeping up with the shaders ensures that we can have professional grade shaders for these wonderful figure shapes, and he’s agreed to make any of them that we need - so if you have a favorite that you’re waiting for, I’d suggest giving him a nudge in any of the open threads he has in here, rather than a PM, so that others with the same need can cast their vote along with you.
I know that I’ve been all over the place talking like this, but I feel that it’s an important discovery that I’d like the whole world to know:
DAZ 3D has easy, step by step instructions for helping anyone whom may want to make something, anything, for Genesis using the great tools they’ve given us by allowing all of us to download a free copy of Daz Studio Pro, which includes hundreds of dollars worth of incredible Content Creation Tools (CCT). The stuff I’ve been reading pertains to making conforming clothing, etc., and the guide claims to be a W.I.P., but is excellent at explaining what needs to be done to actually complete the process from start to finish. It even offers a texture that you can apply to your models to assist in appropriate UV Map production - which DAZ 3D takes very seriously.
After seeing, over the years, how helpful DAZ is at helping us all to better ourselves in any avenue of Digital Art, is it any wonder that I get a bit overly upset when I see conspiracy theories revolving against them? They give more than I give back to them, that’s for sure. Which is part of my reason for coming into this forum as often as I can, and helping out in any way that I can. I do it for DAZ, which, since you’re likely logged in as you’re reading this, means you, too! Digital Art Zone in 3 Dimensions (DAZ 3D) is a place of sharing. The small amounts of money that it costs to buy anything that’s for sale at this place is tiny compared to what it takes to produce such things - and that is not entirely true at all of the places where we spend our hard earned money.
Okay… off on a tangent again, eh, Dartan?
Alright. Well I can truly and honestly predict that Genesis 1 is here to stay. And with DAZ’s help, we can all do anything we are willing to do to make it work exactly as we need it to. The amazing talents of the DAZ 3D Software Development Team have taken Daz Studio to heights we’d never have imagined back when they were readying to release version 1.0 back in the day. Carrara has expanded into being the perfect suite of features needed to create stunning animations, renders, web graphics, simulations… a complete authoring suite, as they call it, which it is! Please try not to read into personal negativity too deeply, nor should we ever dismiss it as irrelevant. Such is why I like to do my best to quell any sort of conundrum that might occur - no matter what someone might be trying to do with the incredibly amazing Carrara. But if there might be something that you just cannot do in Carrara, it might not be that it is undo-able in Carrara, and it certainly does not mean that DAZ 3D is trying to keep you from doing it… but if we work together in a manner that inspires art, not fueling harmful emotion, it is likely that, one way or another, we WILL find a solution!
Thank you very much,
this has been a gleeful writing session caused mostly in part by the tingling feeling that I get after holding my baby Granddaughter. Carrara makes me very happy when I use it - which is very often, and partially why I’ve always been so painfully joyous in the past. Well I’m about to open Carrara for the first time today, and I’m already feeling this good…
Maybe I should stay away from the forum for a little while!
