Every item that I’ve seen so far is perfectly written, in my opinion. Love your style of numbers and arrows, etc.,
Really well done, my friend!
Thank for the devotion.
I’ll be using all manner of links to it to help people to find their way. This is a great help - and I look forward to watching it grow.
Thank you for your kind words, your post just made my day. I look forward to the growth as well. The way we have the Carrara Docs section set up allows it to grow and scale.
I see that. I really like the way it’s set up. But the work you’ve done in there so far truly shows expertise in teaching by the page - I appreciate that, as I’m always looking for ways to help solve queries that come up. You truly deserve that pat on the back, man!
I suspect DAZ_jared works for DAZ, so hopefully they do rely on people like him!
So far, from what I gather, the C7 PDF manual is included with C8.5. 90% or more of it is still valid. The new features need documenting, so if you follow the links provided in DAZ_jared’s first post, you’ll see what is done so far.
Man, I love this one that he did on the new Graph Editor! and now I can hardly wait to play with it! I was just asking for help with the graph editor, and 3dage hasn’t yet come home to us. I got a tiny bit of play time but, again… some instruction would help… and here it is!
Having nothing directly to do with simply Carrara, but ALL DAZ 3D products that have links to wiki pages of more info, namely Howie Farkes Stoney Creek and many others, I think that we need to find a way to fix the wiki links that are all now broken. In Howie’s case, he had included some vital information making his products even more valuable to any Carrara user. I’m certainly glad that I included my wiki info from Starry Sky in a pdf manual. I think that we also need to find a way to fix the “File List” link - as I’ve always found that to be helpful - especially since we really NEED to know where we can find the texture files for our products in Carrara - since none of the “Glow” map information comes through in the translation and we have to find them by hand.
Therefore, with a printed PDF-manual I could go step by step without being online all the time and being frustrated by a broken wiki.
You can export each page as a PDF from the Wiki. This will allow you access to each article without having to go online every time you want to use it.
I would like to also go on record as one who would prefer a PDF version of the manual.
With all due respect for all of the excellent work being done on the wiki manual, the way one can quickly search through a PDF manual to locate any and all occurrences of even the most obscure reference, makes it much more useful than either a wiki or printed version.
Expecting your customers to export every page of the wiki as a PDF, and then compile them into a coherent single PDF manual, is not an acceptable solution. You should be creating the wiki from source materials that could be used to create both wiki and PDF manuals.
It seems to be a somewhat minor thing to request, and I know that I’ve seen requests for the PDF format many times before. I urge you to reconsider the “wiki only” format, and also provide a PDF version.
