Whew, finally settling down enough around here for me to check in. 

Wendy, the package was here when I got home late Wednesday afternoon.  Unfortunately, I can’t get it to install.  It goes half-way then sticks.  Maybe because it says up to XP and I’m running Win7, but that shouldn’t matter.  Then I discovered a C7Pro with S/N that I had downloaded from Cnet a long time ago.  The installer worked, but still no Native Content.  It took the S/N, but when I try to register it with
DAZ, I get a 404.  Guess I’ll try to call them Monday. 

Crap…Jeff, did you take my cup of coffee?  What does Cecil look like?  Are you sure he’s there with you or did he sneak over here and confiscate my coffee?  Well, I’ve got to find it.  Back later maybe.

Does this package start with a C and end with Pro? If so, we need to throw another party to celebrate!

You might need to reboot your computer and try again. If that doesn’t work, try a defrag/disk cleanup, then reboot and retry. Works for me sometimes.

the program should still install on Win7, I have the figures, characters and avatars C6pro version on my desktop
it switches to non-Aero interface when I run it
maybe the disc is iffy? there are free programs for getting data off damaged discs on cnet, I used one on a disc once
if you CAN get it to install you can use the content with C7pro if you have it too, will have to copy it to the folder.
hope it works out, I was thinking you would use C8.5 beta with the content anyway.

I am discovering the quirks of Poser7 and having a second monitor!
forced to use Firefly to render as I cannot export the scene to Carrara.
I could not figure out how to cancel the render when I discovered I’d decapitated my kinky goth nun!
the cancel window was hiding under the render window on my main monitor while I had dragged the program window over to my other one.
she has the Nun outfit with the hip clothified but because it is a figure not a prop dyntomorphs will not work so I cannot save the sim even, have to render.
Actually surprised how quick a full HD 1920x1080 frame renders compared to Daz studio 4 64bit ( it is only 32bit), not quite Carrara speed but close, under 10secs.
have lights and shadows too.

I’m pretty bad I guess, I’ve had Vue 10 F for quite a bit now, never installed it. As far as that goes my Vue 9 F is not installed either. Nor is Carrara 6Pro. Right now its just Bryce 7Pro, Hex2.5, DS3A and DS4.5Pro and my two art proggies PSP7 and PS CS6. And I hardly use more than two of them in a week.

Opps, FilterForge 3 is installed as well, not used much either.

Looked into FilterForge 3 but I don’t think I could afford it, and if I could, I don’t think I could justify its cost unless I start doing more texturing.

Vue just has a WOW factor, it’s so easy, and the render engine is fantastic.

I should look at V10. As for FF3 I won it in a contest, I could not afford it either.

But is it GOOD?  And easy?  I need easy!

Don’t think the basic version lets you create your own filters though, and that’s where I want to be.

Oh wow, how cool is that!  Hope that’s a lovely party.

It’s my stepdaughter’s birthday party today, she’s evil tomorrow.  Erm, I mean, she’s 13 tomorrow!

Jacob, you can do booger particles in Carrara, like I did my Alien vPredator kiss slime.

Blah FF3.
But is it GOOD?  And easy?  I need easy!

Yes it is, to both. My trouble with it is all the free filters on-line. I get lost for hours and forget why I went there in the first place.

I can see that being a problem!

I was looking for something that can make tree bark really easily (no, no jokes about trees going woof woof please), but haven’t found anything yet.  Not even sure FF3 can do it.

They have a full section called nature, or some such, As I said I get lost very fast.

EDIT: Idea for Wendy, Lisa’s Spooky Trees (the ones with the faces) Barking at somebody when they get close. tongue rolleye

Don’t make me waggle my finger, young man!

I found this… http://www.mapzoneeditor.com/?PAGE=FEATURES  but not sure if it’s any good.  Looks like it might be though.
