...unless one is into scripting, the editing function is pretty much useless.
....duf files cannot be read by any version of Studio prior to 4.5. (not even 4.0.x).
....daz format is readable by all older versions of the application from 3.1.x back. Granted one can’t open a scene created in 3.1.x in 2.3.3, but why would one want to anyway?
And that Kyoto Kid is why I’m sticking with DS 4.0 for the foreseeable future. I don’t trust duf files and suspect that we’re going to be forced into adopting something we won’t be able to use our current DAZ Scene files with in the future.
Will I be able to use my files created in DS4.0 in a future version of DS like 5.0? Or will I have to start all over again recreating my V4s from the ground up in a future version? I hope not because I sure would resent it.
That would be like Adobe creating a new version of Photoshop that could not read any Tif, Jpeg or Psd created before the introduction of that particular Photoshop version.
“Sorry photographers, we here at Adobe have decided that with the new Photoshop CS7, you will not be able to open any graphics file created before 2014. Tif, Jpeg, PSD and your camera’s Raw files are obsolete and we’re now introducing the new proprietary ‘DNG 2014’, which is the only file format compatible. So for opening all your archived files pre-CS7 you’re SOL, but we’re sure you won’t mind.”
