Its hard to believe that in a place like NYC I am the only active forum member who uses Bryce. Wow. It’s just so shocking to me. What a shame indeed I would love to meet in person with Bryce users. especially if we had a good system handy for demonstrations and suggestions. Personifying it all really helps to keep one motivated. Ah well, guess I’m alone in NYC after all.
Don’t be so shocked, you’re making an error in judging things to draw conclusion. The error is that not all Bryce users come to Daz3D forums to see your thread offering up an opportunity to meet. The world is a big place and with about 7 billion people in it the number of Bryce users is incredibly small and being they’re distributed worldwide it seems to me it would be a rare thing to find many Bryce users in the same geographical location. To give you a little encouragement for hope though, I’m in Maryland which while not NYC isn’t terribly far away.
Another thing to keep in mind is the level people like you, Horo, David and some others are on is in some respects well above many Bryce users I suspect. By that I mean you are kind of like celebrities or respected leaders that some may feel too intimidated to meet up with casually. Then there is the level on which you guys can talk. Take a look at the kind of questions that typically get asked and then take a look at the discussion you, David and Horo have going on in the lighting thread and the point I’m making should become obvious.
