I loved the pure functionality of this plug-in. The ability to put a working grid up to help me compose my shots was simple, but so essential that I have had to go to making flat plane overlays just to re-create the effect.

Is there any support for this to work in DAZ Studio 4.5?

It’s still sold here, but I can’t get it to work in 4.5

Some features were absorbed by DS itself, and I fear that Dreamlight has indicated that any updating of his plugins, even the ones that are’t duplicated at all by the core application, is a low priority.

To add to what Richad said the Grid/Rule of Thirds guides don’t work in DS4/4.5 which is shame as I found them a great help too.

What I’ve done is made a grid out of thinned and stretched cubes, grouped them around a null. Put it in front of the l and the scale with it. Set it to not cast shadows or be visible in the render… somewhat.

Sigh. Guess I’ll just keep experimenting till I get something that works.
