Let me try this again. My first “hello” was removed because I mentioned an illegal downloading site. First of all, Hi, I have always been wanting to mess around with 3d animation but didn’t want to have to pay several hundred of dollars to mess around with this, to see if I get it. Second I don’t endorse illegal downloading of other peoples work. The only reason I mentioned it was because when I try to download Daz 3d pro, the free software from the store I get a 404 error. I figured it was free so no harm no fowl on my suggestion. Hopefully this won’t get banned

 

The main point to emphasise here is that the only way to legally download any DAZ Software or 3D content, whether it be free or paid for, is to download it here, at the DAZ 3D site and through the DAZ 3D store.

We did have a store problem which is now sorted out, it was a general problem and was affecting everyone. So you should now be able to download the copy of DS that you have ordered.

There seems to be issues with the store this weekend. I’m sure they’ll get it fixed soon

Hi, my name’s Mike and I’m a brand new user to Daz Studio 4.6.  I have only loaded the Studio and have not yet bought any content yet but was thinking about getting Victoria 5 but first I was wondering if the Victoria 4 products will work with it.  A rookie question, to be sure, but I’m totally new to Daz3D and wasn’t sure and didn’t see anything specifically stating that Victoria 4 items are compatible with Victoria 5.  Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome!

V4 skin textures will work on V5 (or any Genesis characters).
Most V4 clothing will autofit to Genesis, but not all.  The biggest trouble areas are footwear, long skirts, and flowing sleeves.  There are several products in the store which can help with these issues, such as http://www.daz3d.com/sickle-rigging-and-morphing-system
Morphs (shapes) for V4 won’t work on Genesis directly, but can be converted to Genesis with http://www.daz3d.com/genesis-generation-x

Hello! like everyone else here, I am a new DAZ user. I dabbled with Poser back in 2001-02 and Terragen, but never really got the hang of it or satisfaction from it. But I am really liking DAZ Studio (actually I think I am a bit addicted already) things sure have changed in the last 10 years! I have been an artist most of my life, drawing, painting, photography; most recently to pass the time I got into Anime art, and was searching for software to help with the fine touches and painting. I found “Anime Studio” but it wasn’t what I was looking for, I saw DAZ at that time but remembered the difficult learning curve with early poser and passed. A year later, I have DAZ! Spending a ton of time, reading and learning about CG. I don’t like to dawdle though, I jump in with both feet when I can and learn as I go. I am a Gemini, so I have to results right away or I get bored, LOL!
My first go round is below, it is rough and a continual WIP as I learn. I was playing with light and camera settings, this is rendered with the Open GL as I am having an issue with 3Delight dumping my backgrounds when they render; so I clearly have more reading to do!

Welcome to the Forums. Nice render to. Tip #1 from me. Save Render as jpg and the Backdrop will stay. A png has a transparent Alpha channel that makes the BG look like it is gone.

Welcome from me as well, and I see Jade already beat me to the tip about saving as a JPG.  ~smile~

BTW, this is not bad at all for a first render.  It’s good to keep tweaking as you learn, that way you can compare your progress as you go.

Come on in and tell us about yourself!

Who are you? What inspires your artistic aspirations? Is Meatloaf your favorite food or favorite musician? What makes you the unique and lovable individual you are?

So drop on by, pull up a chair, and fill us in. We’d be very pleased to meet you!

My name is Rose and I live in the Philadelphia area.  I work at home doing grant research.  What inspires me could be absolutely anything ie the sun, the fog - almost anything.

My favorite food(s) is seafood and French fries. 

I like listening to smooth jazz while I work.

My first 3d program was Bryce and I found out that there were other such 3d programs.  I would like to create gothic, classic scenes.

Hey Rose, I also started with Bryce, except I did it over 10 years ago.  That’s how long I’ve been playing in 3D.  ~smile~

Anyway, welcome to the DAZ forums, and to your latest addiction.  ~wink~
