Pretty much the worst timeline I’ve ever used. No way to switch the auto bezier to linear (keep feet on the floor, for instance). Just AWFUL.
All that info is in there somewhere - we just can’t get at it.
I get annoyed with Daz Studio… leave it for a few weeks. Try it again and within 10 minutes it’s annoying me with SOMETHING.
The MOST annoying thing is the lag when letting go of the orbit tool (the cube to move around your scene) - Daz Studio doesn’t notice that for half a second, so my mouse cursor is off to do something else but my Studio character has flipped upside down, still attached like it’s glued to my pointer. This is exactly the same on two vastly different speed macs. Utterly infuriating. Position something spot on, go up to Render or something and your mouse is still attached to the view - massively annoying if you were on a keyframed camera. It’s like Microsoft software in the 90’s: shoddy and terrible, let the public do the testing. At least Microsoft corrected stuff. Well, some of it.
As they say, “free” comes at a price. In this case, the cost is your patience with a total sprawling overlapping spiderweb install-mess of a program - I mean the content folder is not entirely all the content - SOME things are outside that in runtimes or IN it in runtimes.
I don’t want to know about runtimes! No one does! We want to know about models!
This software got popular too quickly (I am guessing) so the original crappy hierarchy is now just a totally confusing maze of repeat-name folders (everywhere) and general bollocks. Amazing that stuff like this still exists.
It’s a really great program at its core but sadly just impossible to use realistically in a workflow. And editing the timeline is STILL totally nonexistent. Ridiculous!
3/5 if I could edit timelines even slightly.
5/5 if it was like an actual program you get in 2007 even. ie it is contained within itself and has an interface for all the data and 3rd party data.
Then it would be a market leader, easliy, and even more money from content, with the massive Kudos that the useable app itself is free.
But please, for now, just the very basics: moving a keyframe - that is yer basics in animation, well, after being able to do keyframes in the first place.
So many people would be so happy if you did that.
