New user here and i am new to 3D & 2D art as well . I want to know how to install Daz3D studio and related software’s & plugins i tried to install Daz3D studio pro but CCT crashed while installing and most documentation links are broken as well. guide me
For us to help you we need a little help from you first. Could you please give us this information.
What type of computer do you have? A PC or a Mac?
What operating System do you have? XP or Win7 or Lion ect..
How much memory does your computer have? 2Gb 4Gb or more?
Which version of the software are you installing? DS4Pro? Bryce?
I am trying to install Daz Studio 4 Pro , Bryce 7 Pro and Hexagon 2 . I don’t even know what these all do but i want to learn . Is there any procedure to learn in particular order . thank you . Any offline documentation available ?
Do you know how to do a image capture of the Error you get when you run the DS4Pro install exe file?
Also is your XP PC a 32bit system or a 64bit system? You need to install the version for your system.
DS4Pro comes in both 32bit and 64bit. The 64bit will not run on a 32bit PC.
I’m not understanding how the content creation toolkit is crashing. It comes built into DS4 Pro. I haven’t ran the installer in quite some time but I’m not remembering a box that you check off in regards to CCT. Is it possible for you to give us a screenshot of that part of the install and the error you are getting? The more information we have the better we can help you. We’ll get you though this.
Are you trying to install the ContentCreationToolKit.exe? You no longer need to install that as a seperate file. All those tools are now built into DS4Pro and will be active when you register your DS4Pro with the serial number. I’m sorry I did not catch this sooner, I’m one of the people who wonder why they still include those files that are now built into DS4Pro as seperate files. They are not needed. Only the DarkSide Style installer is needed in some versions.
It’s not included with the current download. It was included when DS4 first release but after they started giving it for free they combined it. I you do have that file then reset your download and that will give you the current version of DS and everything is included in it.
Thanks for helping me to install Daz studio 4 pro . Now please guide me to install bryce . I am attaching a screen shot there are 4 .exe files and want to know the order of installation . thank you
OK, Install the Bryce 7.1. 0.o9.exe first, and then follow it up by installing the content. The file that is labelled “bryce lightnining you will only need if you want to set up a “render fram” that is to link more than one PC togehter in a network for rendering purposes.
You will find the content files contain all sorts of things, inclucing scene files
I quote Horo
You can install Bryce where ever you want. The proposition of an installation path is there for convenience. Bryce even runs on an USB stick.
The content installers are not actually installers. All they do is unpack the files with the folder structure on a drive/path of your choice. I recommend to create a temporary folder “MyTempFolder” or whatever name you care to give it and install the content into that folder. Look at the files in the folders created. There are tutorials, sample scenes and such. You can copy them wherever you wish. I have a sub-folder “Content” under the Bryce main folder and have things there so I find the.
There are presets in some of the content packages. These are different. You must copy them into a particular folder. In the main Bryce folder, ther is a sub-folder named “Presets”. Under this folder, there are more folders for materials, skies, textures, objects, etc. Again, there are subfolders and you can add more with names of your choice. Look at the files in those folders and you know which file types belong into which folder.
