Does anyone know when DAZ studio 4.5 will be released? I ask, because i am not sure if it is better to wait for the release or install DAZ studio 4.0x again after my PC crashed…

We’re unsure when it will be released but I would imagine sometime soon.

Thank you for the fast answer. Does “soon” mean a few days or weeks?

I’m also wondering if it will be free like 4.0. Has that been announced? I’m afraid to update to the RC, which is not backwards compatible with 4.0, if it will cost too much money for the released version.

It means daz soon so a few months is not out of the question.

From my “Glossary for noobs” (now renamed “Glossary of Terms - for those new to Digital Art and DAZ 3D”)
http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/46/

DAZ soon: 1- A general good natured attempt at relating an unspecified or incomprehensible time frame to human understanding. 2- An expression of a theory in quantum physics where time actually stops. 3- Equal to or greater than a Epoch. 4- Wishful thinking.


I’m not sure if any of the official dictionaries are picking that one up yet.

Good definition
#5 might be - at an unspecified time in some future timeline maybe

Hmmm, will it be possible to update DAZ studio 4.0x to DAZ studio 4.5 without a reinstall? In that case i could install 4.0x now and as “soon” as 4.5 is released i could simply update it.

I’m unsure if you’ll be able to have both installed. I know with the RC 4.5 it uninstalled 4.0

The normal update process is that the installer for the new version asks to uninstall the old version, then installs itself, so technically there is a reinstall, but this only affects Studio itself and does not affect your content. Installing 4.0.3.47 now and 4.5 when it comes out will be fine, it’s what everyone else will be doing too wink

Studio 4.0 wasn’t originally free. If I remember right it was a few hundred at launch; and prelaunch. It was several weeks after launch; and after quite a few people had bought it, that DAZ made it free.

DS4 Standard was free.  DAZ was going to charge for it as they were going to release a “DS4 Lite” or “Beginner” but never did. DS4S stayed free until DS4Pro became free.

It was more like 5+ months not weeks.

I actually “purchased” DS4 in September 2011, and I only “buy” free versions of DS so Adam is completly correct with what he says.

My bad, studio4 pro cost hundreds and after people preordered it, and a few weeks after quite a few people paid full price for it, DAZ made it free; and why I will never pay for studio or any of it’s plugins, you never know if after you have paid for DAZ will make it free.

It sounds fair, that daz will upgrade all users that bought the ds4 pro with real money and didn’t go for a refunds.
give a free update to the final dazstudio 5 ProPro user
and give the normal pro 4.5 version (standard version) for free to all who download the free version and some option to those people to update at special price.

that sounds fair for all people that lost money!
