I’m sure a refund won’t prove necessary (I’ve just purchased it) - after all, there’s always Poser Pro 2012.


I can’t try it in D|S 4.0 just yet as the PC is tied up doing a large render, but I will report back when I get the chance.


This is no criticism of your work - it’s good to see the new 4.5 features taken advantage of, and the set looks really exceptional - but I am really surprised that DAZ let this product through testing into the store when it has a (albeit small) dependency on a software version that is still in beta!

I’m stuck I can’t go back to DS4.0 or I would loss a lot of products, yes I thought it would be pass the beta stage to. My philosophy is to be on the newest version as I can, as by the time you spend catching up there’s always something new anyway and you fall behind. DS4.5 is way more friendly to poser users and lets vendors support both programs more easily but DS have the main advantage. The same situation will come up on Friday when the Creation Engineer comes out it was built in DS4.5 that should be somewhere on the promo page. Poser user can grab the V4 version at CP anyway. Yes if you get a chance let me know how it goes with DS4.
Thanks

Thanks for the update that will help other people to.
Cheers

If you can’t use the .DUF you can still use the poser format to import anyway, and the presets are .DSA format. if it don’t work get a refund but would be good to know. As I don’t have DS 4.0


A quick update: I installed the Poser version and loaded it into DAZ Studio 4 without problems. It renders beautifully in both OGL and 3Delight.


A very nice model.  Great work.

OK you have prompted me to put the whole store on 50% off so grab his now !!!

The poser V4 version is out now not but not here.

Hope I’m not reading too much into this, as in ‘We’ll have the Genesis one but not the V4 one’, off to check the other stores. Will there be a M4 version?

I’m umming and arring about it at the moment the V4 one was a total nightmare to do I’m doing the xurge3d trick by using visibility poses to turn off the body parts to avoid poke through’s something that DAZ QA doesn’t accept so that’s why it didn’t come here. It was only the hands that were poking through and I just didn’t have time to bring it up to the DAZ standard by it’s perfectly good for rendering the mask has been replaced by a transparent visor and there is a gloves off/on pose so it is a bit different. Sorry I got off track there at the moment the sales aren’t there to make a M4 poser version. It’s the big chest and back that have been all the trouble and I lost it a few times to try and get it right LOL. However the good news for poser people is I do have a working system that let me convert my genesis outfits to V4 and M4. This suit was a first go at it and I should get better with each go. Here’s a M4 conversion of my up and coming Hyper Suit, I’ve also do a V4 version of the Nano Suit, so poster people don’t despair I am getting there slowly.

Thanks for the response, understand now and I am much calmed smile I will have to see if my Wardrode Wizard skills have improved since my last go. Or I could export the Genesis one I suppose and take my chances. Yes I bought the Genesis one in the initial sale, though I am a Poser user mainly I have fun occasionaly with Genesis. I am also waiting for the full release of 4.5

OK new DS4 has passed the first stage of QA plus I’ve added new features for both DS4 and DS4.5
There’s a Hide/Show Glove morph for the suit plus a Hide-Seams to fix any gaps that may occur between the suit and helmet.
A separate Visor with all the DAZ shapes, plus 11 mat presets for it to, so it’s a good upgrade. Thanks for the support everyone in putting it top of the sales.

Dear Midnight Stories,

I just wanted to check on the status of the POSER version of your V4 Nano Suit. Does this exist yet? I would love to purchase the poser version of the nano suit… if one exists.

Thanks!

Unfortunately there just isn’t enough support from the poser community at this stage, a few months back I put up the Engineer suit for V4 at CP and only sold 4 copies, and it was a big effort for so little. I won’t say it will never happen just until the environment changes and it more feasible to do it. It is as far as I got with no jigging just a straight transfer of the V4 dev rig. Sorry this is not what you wanted to hear I know.

Well, crap. :(

Thanks for the update, your response is appreciated!
What if I also promise to purchase the engineer at CP? wink

I saw the Engineer suit at CP and it is very close to what I want… I just like the less bulky version of the Nano Suit better (looks a lot sexier in my opinion). But I do love your work…

Xurge has some similar outfits available… but again, they are just a bit too bulky for the look I am shooting for.

Gosh, I just can’t commit to switching over to DazStudio… too many years and dollars learning the Poser interface and texturing.

I guess I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that things may change.

Thanks again,
Mark Ferrigno aka magnetmage

Does Creation Machine work in Carrara 8.1? How do I get the parts to glow? (I hope that isn’t a basic function I am just oblivious to!)

Thanks in advance.

You know I can’t even get Carrara running the serial won’t be accepted and the trial has run out even tho I own a legal copy of 8.1 Pro. Might be best to ask this in the Carrara forum I’m sure there is someone who has it running.

I am able to open Creation Machine in Carrara. The morphs work on the screens, changing the size of the rings, and hiding the bodies. The solar system planets and other objects are all black though. How were they designed to glow? I was wondering if their shaders need to have glows set on them or if there are different presets that would create the effect? Also, the page on DAZ says it includes 10 cameras. Is that correct? Where are they?

I appreciate your help.

You might have better luck with the morphs if you import the poser files in, well now I’m guessing !
