I have been looking at the “improved” site, and it seems to be anything but for us Carrara users. There is no trial link for Carrara, and every other piece of software DAZ sells is currently being given away for FREE, with download links. The new Documentation/ Help section has zip on Carrara, but the DAZ 3D section has been up since March. They don’t even have an upgrade path from C8 to C8pro in the store anymore.
From what I have seen in the software upgrades, the most substantial improvements are to allow us to buy even more software.
I liked Carrara, it could do things that more powerful software could only do with difficulty. But this seems like C8 is the red-headed stepchild of DAZ.
