The install (done it twice now, plus another manual processing of the metadata) uninstalled previous versions, so hopefully all was cleared down.
The install of DS4.5 beta I did was an upgrade of the 4.5 (so-called stable) version Ihad, but I did not ‘customize’ the CMS install so I had my old CMS carried forward. I hope to hell this does not mean I will no longer be able to use metadata/CMS for any new product!
Happily I have a fresh install of DS4.5 beta ... so, let’s see what we get under Smart Content with that:
“Cameras” <—- yes
“Environments:Architecture:Exterior” <—- yes-ish, the skydome is shown
“Environments:Landscape” <—- no, category does not exist
“Figures:Animals:Air” <—- no, category does not exist, but the Finch appears under Animals:Real-World:Air
“Materials:Props” <—- no
“Props:Furnishings” <—- no, but Monument items show up under basic Props:Architecture category
“Ready to Render:Landscape” <—- no, category does not exist, but there is a Scene: Ready to Render ... but nothing in there for Monument.
So, good news/bad news
I use Smart Content, Files categories, NOT Products.
If I look under Products on the clean install I do see Environments:Architecture:Exterior with an entry for Monument which then expands when selected to show, presumably, all the items. But since I loathe and detest that view I seem to be rather stuffed :(
