NOT Geometries My Library the one with the > by it.

All your Content goes into that Content path I told you to write down. It will install properly with just that one PATH.

Before I forget I’ve never really known where to enter V4 and all the new items I’ve bought ! red face

Wouldn’t CMS sort this automatically if allowed ?

Nope the CMS only Deals with Smart Content and makes a database if you use the Catagory thing in DS. The old files like V4 do not have Smart content so it would do nothing to help.

Your Install path for ALL your Content. is C:\Documents and Settings\Daz3D\My Library
just like it showed at install time.

Okay, See that Little Square with the down arrow and lines in the corner? Click it, it is a menu it probably says at the top View As List. Chang that to say View as Tree. I think you might like that better.

I have to use V4 because nearly all of the stuff I’ve bought was quite old and only intended for it, so does this automatically mean none will work with Genesis ?

Before you go installing new stuff test that DS is working. Cloth a genesis and render it. Test before moveing on.

Nope We can use V4 stuff on genesis, It just has to be done properly. Lets test the default stuff first Okay?

Definitely I always did prefer it. Thank goodness I’m back in familiar territory now with all the sliders and so on….

So nearly there I think ? If so can’t wait !! smile

I think your almost there. Just keep that install Path handy. Use it for ALL Installers. Now when it comes to Zip files I might need to teach you some more stuff.

I have company right now so I’ll beg off on that until later.

Yes good point will do. While I think of it is all the left hand side Smart Content etc. designed for beginners only ?
No idea about Rendering that will have to wait I think….
