Question for those who manually categorize content...
Question for those of you who assign categories to all your content:
Do you prefer to have the various materials/textures associated with a particular item shown in a sub-folder within the item’s own category folder (one level farther down the folder tree), or do you simply have all of your textures categorized under “presets/materials/[name of prop].”
Because so much content lacks Metadata, I just spent MANY hours finally going through ALL my Daz & Poser content folders & manually assigning categories to everything that didn’t already have at least one. This has been an improvement over searching for stuff blindly & trying to remember what content is where, but I can’t help thinking that it would be even better if I had done it differently: i.e. if I had put all those texture options into new sub-folders co-located with their respective prop/item under the Props/ or Sets/… branches of the folder tree instead of under the Presets/ branch. But fixing/adding those new categorizations now is going to mean another marathon of mouse-clicks for me… Will it be worth it?
Is there a better way?
Advice from those more experienced would be appreciated. I am using DS4Pro 64-bit on Win7. Thanks.
