Thanks, Dazbfurner for the news. I a new user of Daz and just downloaded and successfully installed the 4.5 version but some of the “smart content material seem to be missing(blank symbol)instead of content thumb pic. where can I download the basic starting Genesis cloth materials and props?
On the other hand I use Daz as a pipeline to Iclone 5 Pro models for my Machinima movies: http://www.youtube.com/maurojo1

I convert Daz models to Iclone 5 Pro(a game engine) but the Daz high poly count keeps my movies slow. I know about the Daz decimator plugin,but find it too expensive for my free youtube movies.
Is there any low poly Daz models in the future? That would be ideal.

Yeah, WHY is that?

Why would you have to move up to windows 8? I know people that still use XP.

I don’t know about today but last year XP was still the most dominant OS among Windows users.

To the extent that, even though MS said they were discontinuing support for XP, we are still getting updates regularly (if not quite as regularly as before.)

Yes Wolffie, you are getting warmer, red hot in fact. Yes indeed. before Poser Pros came along, before Daz had forums, he frequented Rendo, and I have heard rumours that he still does, but in the main I only use the Bryce forum there, so can’t conform the rumours.

I think he now and then frequents a forum with fairies too ... smile

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?

For Service Pack 3 (SP3) it runs till 8. April 2014

I did not know that xp is still getting support. Otherwise I would have kept it on my other machine. I only upgraded because they said support has stopped. Bastards:) I’m not complaining. Win7 is so much better:)

Yes,  you can still get service pack updates to bring you to ServicePack3 level* and you still get automatic security updates but I believe Microsoft is not writing any new functionality improvements to XP, or any new apps for XP.

The question is, what will happen after 8 April 2014?  I suspect that security updates will cease.  They will also probably not bother to make XP specific fixes or improvements to Microsoft Office or other Microsoft apps.  However, remember that XP was the first Microsoft operating system that needed “Activation”.  Will Microsoft also stop providing “Activation” authority for people who have an XP installation CD and actually want to install or re-install it on a machine?

I continued to use Windows98 for years after it was officially “dead” simply because all I need to do was find a valid license key (whether it was on on an unopened installation CD or on one of those Win98 booklets crumpled up in the bottom of a junk box or was simply found scribbled on a piece of paper).  The “death” of XP will be a different animal because of “Activation”.  Can and will Microsoft actually pull the plug?  Enquiring users want to know!

* Note: upgrading an XP, XP-SP1, or XP-SP2 to XP-SP3 can be problematic.  You sometimes need to manually download an improved InternetExplorer and/or a newer WindowsUpdate app. in order to get enough smarts to get the automatic updater to work.

I’m sooo confused…  I’ve come to grasp a little of the nature of reality and the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  I even have an inkling as to who and what I am. Auuummmmm…
But please, please, who the hell are you?  And why are you trampling my roses?

Thanks everyone for the replies. The “fix-all” remedy was a re-installation of Daz 4.5 and the basic content pack. Next time I get a similar problem,I’ll know!

Haven’t been in the forums since BC (Before the Change)....LOL and I gotta say looks good so far. I wish now you guys would fix some of the other stuff works but enough of that here.
Soooo glad to “read between the lines” about DAZ continued work providing Poser content especially the Genesis figure gigs and system which I think is freaking brilliant and something that should have been implemented when the first and second generation MilFigures came out….better late then never guys yay!

I hope that the items you are currently selling at sale prices (which are great including this incredible figure), will be made available again when ready for those of us not using D/S now and therefore not buying this and other Genesis figures.

Look forward to seeing how this is going to work for all of us.

[...raises hand]

...and I’m still running Office2K.  Works fine for me.  On the other hand Office 2010 (which I am forced to deal with at the day job) sucks small (maybe even medium) planetoids.

...have 7premium 64 for the new workstation but still feel more “at home” with XP.  If I could find a legit version of XP Pro64 I’d get it.

I think if you will stick with us over the next couple of months, you will be very pleasantly surprised with the direction we are going with Genesis. I can’t give any details, but you Poser users will be in heaven. Stay tuned to the DAZ 3D Channel.

Might there be any news of progress available. It’s been about a month and the silence is so far deafening…

The prospect itself is quite exciting. Even to hear it’s still active in progress would be news.

As much as I would love this compatibility to take place as a Poser Only User, DAZ has a lot of site fixes and store fixes and messaging fixes for the user to be worrying about poser compatibility for their Genesis products.
As much as I love the idea of being compatible with this great technology I prefer a better experience at least to the level it was BC (Before the Change).
