Much clearer to me now.  As soon as I get my laptop back up, I want to play with cameras.  Hopefully I can find my pot in my Dreamhome bathroom.

My late husband learned early on to always turn the light on when coming in from second shift.  He never knew where I might have put the furniture.

ROFL!! That does not surprise me one bit. My Ex danced to that same drummer. I can not tell you how many times I barked my shins when I was trying to NOT wake her up after I got home from work.

Every time I open DS I play with something new. I really enjoy playing with the lights and cameras.

What is the difference between .dsf and .dsa. I was loading the earrings from Elven dress for gensis and I noticed there were two different files. I also noticed that when I loaded one set, and then changed the pose of genesis the earrings didn’t follow. Can’t remember which version I used.

Opps, missed that one. Okay folks, truth be told I just really think this thread is a good Idea.

I’m Asking right now that all CV’s and other helpful people help keep this thread up and running. I’m Just a DS semi-know it all.
Like most New Users I’m still finding my way around DS4.5Pro. I do try to stay on top of all the tips but I do not know the answers
to all the Questions that can and have been asked.

I also invite all users to ask any NONE Tech question about DS here. The types of new files and why they exist is not my cup of tea.
How to use the files and install files I understand just fine.

I hope to see more Users soon.

Here is a link to the documentaion about File Formats.  It will tell you everything you ever wanted to know, and probably a lot that you didn’t smile

http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/?do=googlecustomsearch&id=file+formats

Have fun.

Must read it myself sometime red face

Hi Jaderaid, got advised to come here as I am a new B and ask my question if I had any. I am glad I did come here as now I can go through all the-other posts and learn from them rather than hitting a brick wall and having to relay on others helping me.
Just one question I do need help with, if you know what costume this is could you please let myself know so I can purchase it from here?
Thank you and I really look forward to going through your posts

I’m sorry but I don’t know that one wiibb. For the best info on clothing and hair and stuff you will get more people helping you in the Commons Forum. The more folks who see it the better your chance some one will know what set it is. I hope that helps some.

Feel free to ask anything you like. If I can not help I’ll try to find the help you need.

Hi Jaderail… grin

I think this thread is a great idea for all the new users…

I will gladly lend a helping hand when and where I can… Unfortunately my free time lately has been limited to the waaay late hours of the nite or waaaaaay early hours of the morning PST. I barely get to do anything in 3D lately…

But maybe I can guide those that have questions when everyone else is sleeping… smile

See you around…

I’m a newbie when it comes to DS so not sure how much help I can be. I can do most the basics and pretty good with cameras and decent with lights. I’m more of a Poser guru but I’m working hard on DS.

Taking this tip further don’t forget my tip on page 7 http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/4310/P90/#60979 about showing file extensions. Showing them helps with learning what is what.


Also here is a direct link to the list of formats you will come across http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/dazstudio/4/referenceguide/tech_articles/file_extensions/start

Hi Guys, now that I have the very very very basics of Daz and the interface could one of you help me out with some started tutorials as the ones I am finding on the net are not up to much and would love to learn a little about lighting and reflections.
Thanx in advance
