Oom, to try and clarify it a bit.  A freebie, as far as the freebie challenge is concerned, is an item that is not only freely avaliable for everyone to download, but can be obtained without spending any money. Hence the reason any figures from Poser are counted as pay for items, because they are only available if you have purchased Poser.

Equally the free items that were given away with DS are not counted because they are ony available to DS users. They can be used, but as non counting items. THere are several different reasons why not everyone uses DS, including the fact that some people do not have computers with sufficient specs to run the app.

Anything that you make yourself is only counted as a freebie as far as the freebie count is concerned if having made it you then make it available for everyone else to also download and use if they want to.

Hope that helps.

It makes sense, but you just contradicted what jeeperz said last night. See my problem?

me too Alexa, that’s what I thought

Well I went back and looked at the rules. Music is silent on content that is provided by a software package. I personally think that it should be eligible. It is content that came with a free version of DAZ. Now the Poser content I am not so sure about. I have Debut and it came with 2 or 3 Gig of content. I got Debut free last Dec. I bought PoserPro2010 and got some additional content Debut did not have. So for the Debut content my take is it is a no count. No link but I didn’t pay for it. The stuff that came with Poser Pro I would count as paid for because I paid for the software that it came with even though renders with Poser are allowed.

So does that stuff count or not? After reading all the posts I am lost.


that would be a NO, it counts under the misc items that don’t count


jeez OOm, we both said basically the same thing, content in the program you are using doesn’t count, no matter how you say it, you can put it under misc or just mention what it is, either way it’s the same thing buddy

Loose rhymes with moose and means “not tight”.  Lose an “o” to suffer a loss.

How about adding a few lines to the rules and have this done with for good?

The cell shader I made for my entry is now up for download if anyone wants a peek.
http://www.ShareCG.com/v/63572/view/7/Material-and-Shader/Cell-Shader-for-DAZ-Studio-4.0
You will have to use Shader Mixer to apply it, I don’t fully trust the other formats.


I would appreciate if someone tried to load it in DS3. It is hard to tell if if will work there.


Cheers! Oom

Oom, I tried your shader out in DAZStudio3. Works just fine.

Did you know that you could make a DAZ3 shader preset by just applying your shader to a surface and then going to the File->Save As->Shader Preset. When the box opens up I select custom and then expand the file list and click on product. Save it out as a dsa file and then both DAZ 4 and 3 can see the file.

Lots of options with your shader and so simple, two bricks. Now that is way cool. I always end up with all sorts of bricks in my shaders. You must have a good understanding of how Renderman manipulates surfaces. Thanks again for providing this shader.

Can we add a rule that at least every third pie tossed must be a Hershey chocolate pie.

Any who, there are so many great entries this month I think I will be content with posting a few NAE renders just because they are fun.

NAE

Title: EXTRA EXTRA

Ah a cute render. Thank you dleelaw57.

The render qualifies Jester. Like the story going on and your abilities of creating a story from your renders is improving with each submital.  Nice job.
Lonnie

On first reading, I read that as “... improving with each subliminal.”

But we would never use subliminals here… (make a render with Aiko 3!) Would we?

No never! make a render with Apollo

Just Cuase
this is a NAE with Genesis and the AGU morph, A4, and Genesis with the A3 morph and Apollo

Jester,
LOL

Hi guys, sorry I have been absent lately. I’m probably going to take a break for a month or so. Here’s why.


I am 17 weeks pregnant, and have been having some medical problems associated with pregnancy. There’s only so much time in the day to do my work, doctor’s appointments, and keeping up with real life!


When I can get my conditions under control, I’ll be back and updating the gallery!

Woohoo Perl’s busy rendering her own 2nd generation Perl. Great. Hope the problems get sorted out soon, and congrats again on the forthcoming new addition to your runtime.

Nice render! smile Good to hear it will work in DS3 . There are a few more bricks then two, about 30 more, If you click on the menu in the upper right corner of the brick there is a UnGroup option that will show all the bricks, I hope. I no nothing of Renderman and just a little of Shader Mixer.
Thank you for your help!
