Sorry, no disrespect intended. It’s the Royal ‘We’, btw. Ok, I’m just bad at picking my pronouns from time to time.
I’m just at a bit of a crossroads here. I’ve got all this great content for DAZ Studio, but as per a thread in the Commons forum, it seems to lack a usable FK/IK. So, in my humble opinion, posing in DAZ Studio sux. I do use the pre-made poses all the time. Otherwise, the clunky controls and long lists of parameter dials are not conducive to fun or production, thus making me cranky. (I make myself cranky, so I do take responsibility for any crankyness that I express. )
I want to get more creative with the marvelous Genesis character, but DAZ Studio is holding me back. I’ve even considered exporting morphed characters into Blender and rigging and weight painting and shape keying and somehow getting all the hair and clothes and accessories to work…. No. No no no!
I tried the trial to Carrara 8. I couldn’t get my DAZ content in it. And there is no v8.5 demo. How do I know if I want to buy it? I need some kind of evidence that maybe, just maybe, it can do real posing (as opposed to vendor supplied) with my Genesis characters.
