LOL! Ohhh!! I thought you were saying you didn’t have genesis stuff yet… hahaha.

Anybody else feel like having a party now? Seriously. This news is Awesome! And with the return of our Avatars, too… this has been a good week! smile  smile

I have some work to finish and some car repairs to perform, and then it’s off to see about the 4.5prod in the setup.  Considering that rc3 was fine, I don’t foresee problems with the production version.

Now I can work on a few utilities!

Oh!oh!oh!!! You’re *just* in time for the Genesis sale, too!!

Don’t pass up on the YDress or Enchanted or the Supersuit…they’re all awesome!

Also definitely recommend the Morph Bundle and V5 and M5. They’re are on sale now too!  smile


(I know how you just need more stuff to install…*wink*)

Got V5, got M5, got Supersuit, need the morph bundle and some shoes that work. Only have two that convert well. I’m afraid to try some of my other stuff. If I need the item, I still have V4 and M4, Genie would look good in some of my stuff but OH WELL. For now anyway.

P.S. I’m already farther behind than I started today. DARN that My Cart.

Meh sounds like the shoes are still the same. I am willing to bet that the auto fit most likely still works like using the transfer utility tool in 4.37 as a Reality user I can wait. Due to being able to transfer morphs it can sometimes help with fitting boots as seen here. Fringe Lab

Are the Genesis Starter Essentials 1.3 any different from the default content that came with RC3?  Do I need to download that file, or would it just be a waste of time and bandwidth?

Yes, they have been updated. Genesis Starter Essentials ReadMe

-Rob

So we still have to download & install the whole content bundle just to get the latest Genesis? So much for making the content a separate file! Looks like they would have had enough sense to put the required files into the main installer as Genesis itself is an integral part of studio 4.x!! cool mad

There have been a number of us waiting for the content to be split out - I run both 32 and 64 bit, on two different systems and have to do my downloads at a wifi hotspot. This way I only need to download the content once and install it on both computers. Previously I was stuck with two enormous downloads.

9. We suggest that in order to use the PW Shaders you reset your downloads to get the latest version to run with DAZ Studio 4.5.

Are these the correct files for DS4.5?

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Whoohoo! Found my first bug in the new DS4.5. cool grin
In the Render Settings pane when selecting Dimensions / Preset to Active Viewport it will automatically tick Constrain Proportions (which it never did in DS4.0) therefore when you restart DS4.5 the Dimensions / Preset has become Customs instead of staying as Active Viewport which in effect maintains a boxed window. This is really annoying. angry

Got V5, got M5, got Supersuit, need the morph bundle and some shoes that work.

The Genesis Starter bundle is better value than the Evo Morphs bundle, at the current PC sale price of $12.59 it’s $1.05 more than the Evo Morphs bundle, yet contains it, Troll, Hampton Hair, Scoopback Mini and Casual Surf Wear.

Yup, that was how I purchased mine back in February, for about the same price IIRC smile

Not bad, DAZ! It was a bit slow the first time I ran it, but after that, running it is significantly smoother than before.

I just love how everything in the Smart Content is labeled now. I actually find this rather convenient where before with item groups that shared the same icons I had to guess which was an object and which was a material. Not anymore! grin

Yes, though for DS4 you just need the one for your platform of the last two. They will also work in 4.0 - the update makes them recompile themselves for the new version of 3Delight in 4.5, as I understand it.

If you want to use Genesis Generation X (GenX) or DSF Toolbox with DAZ Studio 4.5, you can find more information in this thread. I will release updates for both as soon as possible.

First time I’ve used the new store on my Mac and using this link form the first post:
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/daz-studio-4-pro/
This is what I get (greatly reduced) after checkout from the my downloadable products - kinda confusing…

Yes, presumably because DAZ is moving to using cross-platform zips (and splitting by type would have required custom coding) there isn’t an option to show files for only one platform, and as noted above DAZ is making both 4.0 and 4.5 available for a while so that people can archive the 4.0 version if they haven’t. It does make a long list. You want the stuff for your platform, with .114 at the end of the name.
