I’m very, veeery, new in Daz Studio ( I just download DS4 today) and I’ve being watching Beginners Guide tutorials all over the internet all day.
Most of them talk about the Smart Content tab and how all the default assets are shown in there from the moment the program starts. The problem for me is that there are no contents in the Smart Contents tab, under Files or Products, no matter what part of the Genesis character I select.
It’s just like that portion of the software could not watch the contents that are displayed correctly in the Content Library.
Is this normal? What am I doing wrong?
I’m using a Mac running Snow leopard and I’m not new to 3D in general, only to DAZ.
CMS is the Content Management Service whcih is installed along with DAZ Studio. I have no idea how to start it on a Mac, but in Windows there is a folder in the All Programs area called DAZ 3d, and it contains a folder called DAZ Content Management Service. There is an icon there for restarting it.
You could try a search for some of the key words to find that folder until someone who knows where it is on a Mac comes along?
Hi, sorry for hijacking the thread, but I am having the same problem. Running DazStudio 188.8.131.52 (32 bit version) on an iMac (Leopard OSX 10.5.8). I have been asking for help on the Nuts & Bolts form and have been directed here.
I have nothing showing up in the Products and Categories folders, and the Smart Content Pane is also showing nothing. Rather annoying as I have a sizable collection of products for Genesis, and it is more than just a pain-in-the-neck having to use the standard Content Library to find and load up all the clothes, props, materials (etc) for these.
I have no idea what (or where) Launchpad is (it may be a Snow Leopard thing - I am running Leopard), so unable to confirm if the Daz Content Management Service is running or not. I cannot find this the CMS either within DazStudio or using the search facility within Finder (the Mac OS). I have tried various key words and phrases, but no luck in finding it.
I have the exact problem as danielterraz. I used snow leopard, Mac, as well.
The only difference is when I first started using Daz 4 pro, everything works fine in the Smart Content. Now nothing shows, and Product and Categories is not responding as well. I would like to do something about this CMS if that is the issue and perhaps even resetting to default can solve this problem. Hopefully someone how uses Mac comes along and help… But I have a question, if I can do that to reset this Smart Content properly, would I lose everything I already installed. ( this is my concern so that i won’t risk reinstalling Daz all over again).
Please help… it’s really painful to search for anything when the Smart Content does not work…
However it is not much help, very badly written if there is it stops half way through the topic with no links or guidance on what to do to fix the problem. I have raised a ticket with the help desk to try and get an answer to this. I will let everyone know what I find out when I get a response.
I am experiencing the same issue described here and I can’t restart CMS. I am monitoring, reinstalling, uninstalling DAZ CMS and the whole DAZ 4.5 Pro, but nothing changes. I am running (x64) MAC OSX Mountain Lion on iMac and CMS is not even running, nor can it restart. Can someone help please. It seems to be a a serious problem as the web is full of complaints on that very matter but people offer little help on that. Please Help!
NB: I’ve done everything suggested earlier in this thread, but still nothing. I purchased the Toon Generations Bundle and plan on using the UberEnvironment2 but cant find it inside DAZ since Smart Content doesnt show anything.
I tried to download the Genesis file that someone above suggested and I cant coz I get this error : Sorry, there was an error getting requested content. Please contact store owner.
I cant download it. Anyone knows where else to get this file for MAC OSX?
