Nothing like posting an image to show us what you mean Scott. smile Can I suggest making a Render WIP Thread in the Art Studio or Begineers Section. The we can better advise and give pointers. But like all this there are so many ways to skin a cat (sorry cat loavers, no offence).

Szark, my image in question can be found here: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewreply/59567/

That’s the big reason I decided to get an LED monitor. I don’t have any of those problems anymore.

That is so True!! Once they are set to Standard across the board they stay that way.

Hey, Teach.  I’m not really playing hooky.  My cold’s much better now.  I’ve downloaded a couple of items I reset.  Through in the yard until the mower decides to cooperate.  Finished surfing the forums—for now.  Headed for the coffee pot, then I’ll light up and get down to work.

Later, gator.

Hi Everyone

I have been wondering for a long time, what is the difference between the props and materials in the image, and what is that scrolly thing meant to signify?

Hi Everyone, I have been wondering for a long time, what is the difference between the props and materials in the image, and what is that s thing meant to signify?

@version3: Well, my friend you really have more than one way to tell. First you can turn on the Extensions in your Prefs and most Items will end with .cr2 and Some times .pz2. But that can not always be a good way because some Materials files can end with .pz2 as well. The more reliable way is which folder they are in. Figures, People, and Props are the folders that have the most Items in them. Textures or Materials are normally in Poses or Materials folders. The Scroll indicates that it has both poser textures and daz textures and the program will load the DAZ version.

Thanks Jaderail, I am learning something new everyday in this thread. I have it bookmarked now so I don’t have to keep searching for it.

Didn’t get much done today.  I did put a goatee on Genesis with the idea of turning into a woman, but then decided to go to a Chibi Boy.  Got the giggles, but I liked him.  Didn’t save or render, but got some ideas simmering from it.  I guess at some point I turned my extensions on.  I know I did because I got tired of trying to apply pz instead of *r.  Just can’t change hair color if the hair’s not already there.

I knew there was something else.  I’m planning to work on posing tomorrow.  I know how to split into more than 1 workspace, but is there anyway to have different images in each, like for reference?

@AtticAnne: Now that one is out of my range of knowledge. I’m a single screen type of fellow. Never did the multi screen thing. Sorry.

Lets see if we are on the same page.

You want a different reference image in each Viewport when using a mutli windowed worspace? If that is the case then No, not automatically is the answer, unless you put a plane, with reference image applied, in for each Camera.

Here is another tip for you guys.


To get to know the different File formats may I suggest going to Edit > Preferences (F2) > Content Library and make sure Show File Extension is checked on. This will then show all your content with their associated file extension.
