I’ve been looking at the new 4.5 verison of Daz3d. But I’m a bit worried. I spent a very long time learning Daz3d 4.0 Pro and I’m afraid if I download this verison and change the version I already had, I will have to relearn things I already know. I’m also afraid that products I already own will not work on the new version.
Does anyone know if this is the case? Are there things I should know about the function of the 4.5 that will change what I already have to the point of having to relearn the format of the main scene? I’m not sure I’m explaining this correctly. But I’m hoping someone can explain if downloading the new program is really worth the effort.
works better and renders faster .
well worth it .
I’m sorry Bigh,I disagree I don’t think its better.
Genesis doesn’t work better for animation at least not for me. unless you want top make 30 seconds test animations. with little to no clothes on characters. it does not transfer files over to poser with out dson, you can’t share animated DUF scene files in daz3 or in any version of posers.. gen 2 & 3 products don’t work well or at all in genesis. still tons of problems with autofit tool in the animation process, pz3 animated files don;t work in daz4.5, and some older pp2 environment models error when loading in daz4.5
rendering older daz character skin shaders always need to be screwed with to make them look right , older lighting sets don;’ work in daz4.5 which forces you to buy new ones.
if you own gen 4 character morphs you need to purchase new ones to work for Genesis if you want to have any kind of body shape to your characters. older fx tools don;t work in daz4.5 forcing you to buy new ones.
The only ones i see benefiting form daz4.5 is the daz. it forces the daz3 & poser user to buy genesis tools & products or go with out.. or spend hours screwing around with this tool to make it work with this tool and so one.. no thanks its not better its will just cost you more to use it. Plus i keep hearing how much easier it is to make characters and clothing for Genesis. But the cost of those products are double of the gen4 products on this site or any other site.
The funny thing is when poser changes and come out with new versions of poser. I can still use all my older poser4 content with out having to have this tool or that tool in order to make it work, can Daz say the same when they update their versions
this has been a issue when daz updates from version 2 to version 3 and version 3 to version4 and version 4 to version4.5 you see a pattern here? I assume this will be the case for when they come out with daz5 also..
Newer is not always better its just newer and when it comes to daz it usually cost you a lot of money if you want to use the new versions of Daz studio, no thanks I stopped buying DUF & genesis files. its not worth it to me.
