Glad I could help. smile Did you figure out the browser yet?

I sorta figured it out.  The documentation is way better than what we’ve gotten for Studio.  I’m looking forward to when I have enough money to buy.  I just hope 8.5 doesn’t get released until after Oct 10.

Yesterday and today I’ve been trying to wade through my render problems with Studio 4.5Pro and ended up crashing.  I can see my bed from here, so I’m going to crash now.  See everybody tomorrow.

Nope, just have whatever I can find for free and in my Studio runtime.  Oh, I also have one of the Posers, Debut.

Anne, did you install the Native Content?

Actually, I don’t know what kinda problem you’re having.

Aaaaand…I don’t know what kinda problem I’M having. Even with the default scene gravity unchecked, forces don’t seem to work on anything.

Unrelated to forces:

I found this video and it helped answer SOME of my questions about asnimating walk cycles.

I know DS can do symmetry on a pose, but can Carrara?

Never got any Native Content installer.  Didn’t come with the trial version of 8.1 I downloaded from Cnet and not with the 8.5 beta.  Guess I’l probably wait until the new version is released.  In the meantime, surfed through ShareCG and picked up some shaders and Bryce stuff.  With all I’ve got in My Library and in Poser Debut I’ll be busy enough.

I just realized the manual found at AHelp > Carrara Help is for Carrara 6, which explains why I can’t find sdome things in both the manual and the program. Nuts.

Where is the IK Chain button? Or are M4/V4 already IK Chained?

Is there a page online where I can download the Carrara manual? I have been looking at Carrara for a while now but can’t decide if it what I want.
