Day 10 already, no Carrara items again.
But Rawart has 100+ characters for any type of render.

My bad, looks like day 10 has at least one Carrara hair item:
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/modacuts-atoe
At 65% off.
Since item that are both PA and Daz co-owned don’t show up directly, theyare more difficult to find.

Bonus for PC members, the hair above is free with the 6$ coupon. Woohoo!

Sweet, another PA/Daz sale at 65% off is:
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/photo-realism-bundle for 35$, usually 70.
Featuring V4 elite Lana with Carrara shaders, the 2 M4 elites Carrara shaders are sold separately.

PC coupon should work with this, though I read in the members forum that it is broken now.
I’m sure that the Support will sort this out for us on Monday.

I tried to use my PC coupon yesterday, it would not work.  Today, the price is up to ~$70 (coupon still won’t work), so a Monday fix isn’t much help.

DAZ’s problems seem endless.

Hey Steve
Simply email a support ticket or give them a call and you will get the sale price next week.
They have promised to honor the sales if technical issues stop one from buying, but Daz is also very helpful in general.
I will be doing the same with a Carrara hair item…

3DCelebrity - Lots of Carrara hair
Ringomonfort - Shaders, can never have too many of them

I HIGHLY recommend the LoREZ figures for backgrounds, crowds, mock-ups and visualizations. LoREZ figures are light on resources and look “generic” (not idealized like Mike and Vicky). And you can have dozens of them in a scene…. Good for professional work where you don’t want everyone looking like a pinup because the focus is meant to be something (or someone) else….

I agree.  Plus its very quick for situations like the 48 Hour Film contest.  Having to generate many versions of, say, M4 and V4 with clothing would take much longer, and not be much better for background figures.

I have Lorenzo and Loretta Lo-Res, but I’m not sure what Casual Lo-Res guy would add.  I am considering the Lo-Res SciFi Maintenance Guy, and to a lesser extent the Lo-Res Arab guy.
