Fact is, I had sent them the Gold Master DVD by mail on 22.08.2011. The volume name wasn’t even changed. It still reads Gold Master.

Yes sir, I can confirm that, that’s what the volume label reads in windows explorer when I look at the drives in my computer and the Tutorial DVD is in my DVD Drive.

Sure, David and I got a specimen copy each (after some nudging) and that is the one that has the $3.46 stamp on the parcel.

Has there been any update on this from DAZ, chohole?  I just went through the checkout process again, up to the point of shipping costs, and still get only the following two prices:

“United Parcel Service
Worldwide Expedited $84.30
Worldwide Express Saver $88.46”

These in addition to the product price of $79.95.

Just to contrast, the Black November sale yesterday had two Cararra training packages each priced at under $40 (sale prices), but more importantly available via download.  Is it feasible to host the Bryce videos online and make them available to purchasers only, for example via Dropbox?

First of all ... Happy New Year to all.  It’s now 2013 here in the UK, but the DAZ end of year sale still goes on for another couple of hours, I hope raspberry

Plus I’m chuffed to bits to see the David and Horo sale on their Bryce products!  Big Ups, guys smile

But now the sad news.  Still no downloadable version of the Mentor series training DVD, and DAZ/UPS have put up the price of the shipping ...

United Parcel ServiceWorldwide Expedited $85.30
Worldwide Express Saver $90.35

This is madness! Sending it by US Postal Service costs $3.46 to Europe. Yes, we do hope to get it downloadable soon.

OK a progress report from PASS (that which replaced BasecampHQ (which in turn replaced PARC)).  Says… Carl is looking at the “Store Page/Installer”.  Given that we are looking at over 4 gig, I suppose it is going to be chopped up a fair bit.  But that’s the state of play.

An update on progress.

The Bryce Mentoring DVD has been converted to a digital download, and I’ve just given it the go ahead to be published, so as soon as DAZ 3D’s system notices this has happened it should become available in the shop.

It’s take “a while” but it seems we are finally getting there.  One more small step to take.

Absolutely fabulous news, and a big thank you to you guys for pushing theis through so steadfastly smile

The item seems to have disappeared from the Shop and from my wishlist right now, but I’m sure this is a side effect of Daz probably creating a new shop entry.

Thank you, guys!

You are welcome.

Good news everyone, here it is Bryce Mentoring DVD 

And at the time of posting.  It’s on special offer.  What more could you ask?

Go on.

@David:  Do you know the size of the ZIP files?  Nine files could take someone on a slower network some time to download.  Asking out of curiosity.  Thanks for all the work getting this done.

Got to be about 500mb each.  Given that the total volume is over 4gb.  This was always the dilemma though with offering this as a digital download.

That link does indeed work. However, the link to the product in either of our store does not.  As it stands, the product can only be purchased using the link provided - at least for the time being.

@David:  500mb isn’t too bad, about the size of a good adventure game.

It’s also showing in the new releases http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/bryce-mentoring-dvd-videos-scenes-and-resources

To address the point raised by Gussnemo’s question couldn’t there be a hard copy version for those that can’t handle massive downloads (not only due to speed but also bandwidth limits) and then the downloadable option for those that don’t have such limitations?

@LordHardDriven - thanks for the link. You know, we initially had asked for a hard and a soft version. At the time, only the hard option seemed feasible. Now, since shipping is more expensive than the product itself, the soft version is the only option. DAZ 3D is a digital company, it’s either 1 or 0. Hopefully, this will yet again change to the double option. I would certainly embrace it.

Well it would be nice to have either option. I’m not sure how it is because I’ve never had restricted bandwidth but I’ve heard of low cost packages in some countries that only give you a couple of gigs per month so for someone like that they might have to wait a month to finish downloading.
