Heh yes Manley you made me laugh too. smile
Obviously they only sent the announcement to special people.
I wasn’t one of them either…

Did you hear the one about the Carrara user who got up one morning to find an email from Daz to say the manual was ready?

Heh, that one had me screaming with laughter as well… wink

We are working on the final bugs to have the 8.5 build ready to release. We have one major bug that needs to be fixed, tested then we should be ready to roll out. Not sure the time frame, but it is looking good.

He said they had one more bug to fix…

ONE MORE BUG TO FIX!

I read that as the typical DAZ.

Marketing “How much longer on C8.5”?
Dev “We have one more show stopper bug and….”
Marketing “good, just one more bug to fix and we release it”.
Dev ” no, I said we have one more show stopper bug to fix, we still have 3 pages of bugs to address”.
Marketing “right, we have one more bug to fix before release”.

While I know that there are lingering issues and bugs to fix, I think that it would be cool to know a bit about future implementation and development plans for Carrara. My company, like most, have an end game or vision of what the software will be and then work toward that end goal or feature-set. My company informs us of planned implementation of features. Nothing set in stone. But it communicates vision.

Carrara was the first 3d software that I dove into and it has always been my go to for projects - I just like Carrara.

My hope is that the development vision for Carrara goes beyond “making it play friendly with Daz Studio”.
(which seems to be the brunt of the development for the last two years).

at risk of sounding preachy - the Bible makes a great observation with:
“without a vision, the people perish”.
I think that may also apply to just about anything - including software development.

A good example of systematic implementation is modo -

Any thoughts?

Realtime, I’ve asked the same question.  Carrara has the potential to be an amazing program (probably the ultimate program for hobbyists), but DAZ just doesn’t seem that interested in Carrara.  I really don’t understand them.  They spend some time and money on it to update it, but they don’t seem willing to really put the resources into it to really exploit its potential.  It’s very frustrating as a dedicated user.

Who knows?  Maybe DAZ will surprise us all with C9 and make it something really awesome.  An upgraded render engine (or at least a way to use Lux), new particle system, ability to “clothify” content clothing…just to give some suggestions.

I wish DAZ would either make carrara a bad azz program or sell it off! SHEET I ll take it..

Take out that awful vertex molder replace it with HEX. Make some great particle emitters. Maybe a new render engine and we could kiss Maya good by
