I think you’d need to delete a load of stuff from the imported model before you add the soft-body modifier, and it would take a while to process, but yes, It’ll flatten with gravity and the right soft-body settings. even without a weight dropping . wink

LOL. I tried messing around with what Barry described. I made a 4x7x1ft mattress in the modelk room and added soft body to it. I honestly have no idea what happened. Even with the scene gravity on or off and Bounce at 0, Faaaaaat Vicky (with no softbody) was tossed off the bed into the air, flipped over to land on her stomach and slid off the end of the mattreas head first.

It was weird and kinda funny. And no, i couldn’t fix it. So i’m back to harnessing the power of the Forces.

Jacob, I could just see that and am laughing like crazy.  I needed a bit of cheering up and you did it again, my friend.

Ah I didn’t think of magnets, thanks Andy. 

My lovely partner wants to buy me a prezzy, so I’m thinking of getting Carrara 8 Pro.  I’ve asked if there’s a direct upgrade path from 6 Pro since that’s the only version I’ve got registered with Daz, even though I’ve got an unregistered 7 Pro.

Obviously I’d like to wait ‘til 8.5 Pro comes out, but that’s not out until “Soon” so I’ll probably have retired by then anyway.

There used to be an upgrade to C8Pro, but I can’t find it anymore.

That’s interesting, and something I can try.

I did ask if they could possibly pleasyweasy register it without proof of purchase, but in all honesty if I was in their place I would refuse that!

Still, I can try to upgrade and if they question my prior purchase I can always take it on the chin and not upgrade.

HI All smile

Barry smile
the upgrade options are something that’s been discussed at length in the Carrara forum, and, (I think) there’s still no solution.
(As far as I know) it’s an issue with how the new store works. 

You can contact Daz and they can sort out an upgrade for you, but,...
unless it’s something you Need to do right now,.. I’d wait a while, until there’s an announcement on C8.5, because there’s usually a sale / special offer thing, at that time to entice existing users to upgrade,.. and at that point I think they’ll NEED to have an upgrade option in the store.

As for C7, ..Daz should be able to sort that out for you, since it was available (free) on a Mag coverdisk.
there should also be no problem upgrading to C8,... I’s technically not an “Upgrade”.. It’s a completely different program, (C8 pro is also 64 bit)  ..so it’s not required to have C7 installed.. to install C8.

Jacob, smile
Yes, you can write with particles, and create lot’s of random ambient patterns. plus, particles can also be carrara objects like fog or fire, or custom objects you’ve made, like tomato’s smile

do a you tube search for “Carrara Particles”

Age of Armour, and Dimension Theory have some great particle examples and tut’s

I don’t need 8Pro yet, as such, I just want to be current.  But I see your point about the waiting game.
What surprises me is that this new site software even got used.  It’s been a long time since it was implemented and we’re still not up to where we were with the old one held together with chewing gum.  Clearly it’s not Daz’ fault, as there are regular improvements, but honestly, if something didn’t do what I wanted I wouldn’t use it.

The particle thing interests me a lot because I want to make fantasy based renders, and often dragons are known to breathe fire, and faeries are magical, and mages cast spells, and… oh I don’t need to continue, you get the message.

I’ve looked at a lot of particle vids on youtube, but I haven’t seen anything about tracing the letters yet.
