I would appreciate some advice before I install DazStudio 3
I have DazStudio 3 64 bit version 18.104.22.168
I had it installed on a 4 core, Win 7 64bit machine but I will be putting it on a 4 core Win XP Pro 64 bit machine this time. It was being really buggy so I uninstalled the program and all content. I could not get it to export .obj. The program would freeze somewhere between 35%-50%.
The XP machine is faster, more ram and stable as a rock.
An example: Faveral's Medussa will export fine but if I add the sails it freezes on export every time. Maybe I'm missing a step. Anyway I am moving things to a second machine that I built for graphics only.
Before I start the process all over and dig out all those disk from Daz with programs and content, could you tell me which path I should take?
The question: I don't use Studio much except to load content and send it to Bryce. I have never built and rendered scenes for DS rendering. Is upgrading to a newer version worth the effort and money? If you recommend upgrading, is my older content compatible? What is the best way to load the old content that has old installers that don't let you chose a file location?
I know that is a lot but thank you for your help
