@Pam:  How do you like Poser 8?  I like it a lot but still prefer DS even though I don’t know why.  And of course I’m a bit grumpy about paying for Poser and preferring DS!

And I am NOT getting into a fight about which is better, partly because that’s pathetic and childish but mostly because it’s all down to personal choice and nobody will change anyone’s mind by arguing.  Just thought I’d say, before any trolls appeared.

So far I quite like P8, although I am bit miffed because Shader Spider won’t work in it, and I use Shader Spider a lot .Apart from that I guess I can live with it.  Mostly I only use Poser for setting things up, then they go into Bryce. If it’s stuff for my site, then I set up the mat poses in Poser, and do the promo renders in Poser.

Not sure how I am going to do my mat poses without Shader Spider.

I don’t actually know what Shader Spider is.  Sounds like a bug that hangs around in dark corners.  Creeeeepy!

I has a new picture!  Originally it conformed to the rule of thirds, and then I must have moved the camera and it didn’t any more!  Still, I like it.

It’s one of those extra plugins you need to buy to make Poser able to do what DAZ Studio has built-in :devil:

Thanks Jeff.

So… Now… I’m kind of used to lighting (in a newbie sort of way), and I can position things, and come up with a half-decent render using a subject and a background.

Next step from an actual art point of view… Attention to detail!  My art has mostly been an experiment in posing, lighting, etc until now, and I’m improving enough at that to make me want to get better at putting more in my scenes, in a logical and artful way.

Expect another piece soon.

How are we all today?

I’ve spent a good day with a friend today and am ready for a good night.  Got to pick my stepdaughter up later, but other than that I’m up for some relaxation and possibly playing with DS.  Won’t be working on any modelling or anything tonight, feeling the need to stick with what I know tonight.

Not sure what theme to use, I seem to be on a downward spiral with my BlumBlumShub character render.  Maybe I should just put that on hold.

Got a fair bit of stuff to look through from the PA sale, so I’m looking forward to that.

One thing I do have to do is uninstall some stuff that I got a refund for, because I totally forgot to do that.  I can remember it all though so it won’t be a problem.

What are you guys up to?

Just spending the day at work - fun fun fun! wink  Trying to figure out a texturing issue on a model I’m using, but can’t try a new suggestion until I get home.  Lots of questions about DAZ, brand new to the program and 3D modeling in general, but those will have to wait a bit.  Playing with Filter Forge, cranking out textures for later use.

That’s pretty productive.  I might pick your brains about making smart props at some point.

Oh, that reminds me… well… something reminds me, probably just seeing you here actually… You play Spore don’t you?  Do you have the online stuff active?  I got a copy over the weekend and am probably going to start it soonly.

Me I am toddling around the forums, as usual, looking for fires to put out.

Twiddling my fingers waiting for the nod that the download problem is fixed, so I can have another go at downloading the long list of stuff I purchased and didn’t bother to Download till I had the new PC up and running.

Keeping an eye on the PC sale, first members choice thread is up.

Apart from that not doing a lot.

I have it all installed, I’ve never done the on-line but I’m not adverse to it. Let me know when you want to try it. You got my E-mail right?
