@Mr Ted:
In 10.7+, ~/Library is hidden from the users.  The simple way to show it is using the Terminal and tell finder not to hide it. In 10.9 you can unhide it from the Finder.

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

Hope this helps.

Do you happen to recall what that fix was?

http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/artzone/pub/software/carrara/carrara7_snowleopard

Sorry I haven’t responded to this till now, saw it a few days ago but you know how it is working late and all that.  But I can’t find the file that starts with User, let alone preferences or anything of the sort. 

Used to be so easy, but since I got the new MBP already running 10.8.?, now running 10.8.5, nothing is in the spot I used to be able to find it!  I couldn’t even copy and paste the path in the link into spotlight to try to find it that way.red face

Got any more advice?

Thanks!

Ted

 

Yes in 10.7 10.8 they hid the user library directory.  There is a simple way to show it all the time without changing the directory attributes but I can’t find it.  We did it on my wifes.  But here is a quick and easy way.  HOld down option (alt if using a non-apple keyboard) while you go to the GO menu in finder, it will show additional folders. You can select Library from there.  Once that folder is open then you can go into preferences:DAZ 3D:Carrara etc.  I believe thats what you would do.  I don’t have Carrara currently installed on the Mac here to test if this is the exact place. 

Also what Addict said smile

How long is the 48% special price going to be good for? I’m really interested in getting this, but the timing is not the best. However, I don’t want to wait and then find out the price doubled on me.

FYI: Folks have been asking that question since they’ve announced “Extended”, and there has been no official reply since - and that was a long time ago. Sorry about that, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging.

Thanks. Hope it lasts long enough for me to snag it.

If you decide to purchase Carrara 8.5 Pro, join the Platinum Club for $24 (for three months) FIRST. 
Once you’re a PC Member log out then log back into the store.  You’ll see the DAZ Originals discount:

1. DAZ Originals discount (Currently 40% normally 30%) stacks with the 48% discount resulting in a 69% discount = $171.00
2. Current promotion $10 off $50 will give you an additional $10 off =  $161.00

That’s a savings of $114 if you make the purchase as a PC Member ($285-$10 vs $171-$10) or $90 if you factor in the PC Membership cost.

Edit: Just tested, if you add 2 of the “Love to Learn” product releases, you’ll get another $10 off of Carrara 8.5 Pro.
Edit Edit: Corrected references to Carrara 5 Pro to Carrara 8.5 Pro

I’m pretty sure you mean Carrara 8.5 Pro. wink

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

Thanks for the sale update, I’ve been watching Carrara for a little while now and am going to jump on this sale. 

If I subscribe to the Platinum Club and then purchase Carrara, can anyone recommend any other goodies that would be beneficial for starting off.  I have previous 3D experience with Ray Dream, Bryce, Poser but that goes back about 10 years so I’ll need to refresh those skills and could use any recommendations for learning materials as well as any other tools to help speed things up.

In my humble opinion, if you are getting Carrara this is a must have:

Carrara 8.5 Tutorial Video - Instant Digital Download

And when you mastered that, you can move on to:

Advanced Carrara Techniques

To start you can always browse this forum, especially Dartanbeck’s Miscellaneous Tips & Tricks for Carrara thread. There are plenty of other threads like it on the forum.

Well it actually does have a manual, but it was last updated in 2008, so…

Is the $10 off $50 still working?

I just subscribed to the club and then logged back in to purchase Carrara but don’t see the $10 off $50 discount?

For what it is worth, I am this moment installing Carrara 8.5 Pro that I just bought for $89.95. I am a Platinum Member and had Carrara 6 Pro via the DAZ Economic Stimulus Bundle of a few years back. Because C6 Pro wasn’t listed as it’s own thing (it was an element under the main header of ‘DAZ Economic Stimulus Bundle’) I had to contact Support to get the discount. Britney had me buy a gift card for $89.95 and then she converted it to the purchase of C8.5 Pro. I had to wait about two days, but it was SO WORTH IT!  And with the money I saved I was only too happy to reinvest it in Howie Farke’s Stoney Creek Bundle and some other things. I imagine before the end of March I will own one of everything Howie makes and then some!

Yayyy DAZ!  Thanks for working WITH me to get a great bargain!
