I have purchased Victoria and also some clothes, I am having problems getting them into the scene as I can not seem to find them in my library any help would be very much appreciated.
Also what other software is used to help with the renders after you have finished with your model?

If your talking about V4 stuff then they will probably be located in: Poser Format/My Library

Thank you for such a fast reply back to my question raspberry

Great to know this is such a well organised community

SD4 Outfit and also so hair I can not remember the name of it but can get it if need be?

I have installed the files after I downloaded them but I just can not seem to be able to get

them into the main interface for some reason.  I know it is because this is my very first time using Daz and just need more time with it but would be great to know just now so I can get to work with Daz.

Thank you.

Older items like that will show up in the Content Library tab under “Poser formats > My Library > Figures”

I have looked were you said were they would be and also ever other file and still not there, but they are in my computer in the right DIR as I went through my computers files and they were there?

It is just all the default items you get with Daz that are in my .dir

They are in My Library and not in Content? If in My Library they should show up in Poser Formats>My Library. Some older content Defaults to the old Content folder for install. That is wrong for DS4, you need to point the Installer to My Library. The My Library folder is the content folder for DS4.

Once you downloaded the files, did you run them? The files you download are actually “installers” and you have to click on them to start the installation process.

If you can see the files on your hard drive, what is the exact path and filename?

The Proper content path is C:/Users/Name of User/Documents/Daz3d/studio/My library all content needs to go to that path to install in ds4.

When you run the installer change the install path to the above.

Sounds like we might need more info to help you. Could you post this information please.

What type of PC are you on, PC or Mac?
What is your Operating System, XP, Win7, OSX ect..?
What file format is your PC, 32Bit or 64Bit?
Did you do a Standard Daz Studio install?

I did try to install Victorial and there was no problem there she I can take her into the software for rendering now

It just seems to be a problem with the clothes and hair?
