Saw this in the newsletter today, lower price for new customers and a new Multipay feature to split the cost on 3 months.
A huge 69% sale on Carrara 8 Pro!

Link through the newsletter.  Although the page says $99, when you use the drop-down and choose Multi-Pay you get the $59.  Go on through checkout, don’t worry about the $99 still showing, it give a 40% discount at the end.

I bought it around midnight and immediately was able to download.  Only problem is that it looks like all the files are duplicated in my available downloads.

HI Anne smile

You get all the Carrara 8 files, (both Mac and PC) and you also get the latest “beta” version of 8.5

They “should” be named appropriately,.  but with all those different files,.. it can easily be confusing .

The main Carrara program installer.., and the “Carrara Native Content” installer, are the main two parts which make Carrara.
The Carrara “render node” is a network renderer, if you want to set up a render farm with some other machines.

The “bonus” content (V4 M4, figures morph packs), and the “Carrara Hi-res shaders” are there to get you up and running if you don’t already have those figures.. there’s also some bonus files, like Howie’s Snow scene, which are just great example scenes, and nice tree’s smile

You should install the main program first, and then the Carrara native content, which should be installed to wherever you installed Carrara.

The beta, should be installed into a completely separate folder., it’s not supplied with any native content,.. just the program,..


Hope it helps smile

Hi, Andy,

Windows 7, 32-bit.

I previously had C7ProTrial and C8ProTrial installed.  8Pro’s trial period had expired a week ago.  Uninstalled both programs.  Left 8.5 beta installed.

I only downloaded the PC files and there are 2 copies of each.  So far I’ve installed 8.1.1.12, NativeContent, Digital Painters Shaders, and Digital Painters 3DPPaint Brushes Sampler. All these went into C:Program Files. I don’t need the RenderNode.  Wanted to see how things were looking, but can’t get into C8Pro.  After splash screen I get “Trial period expired” followed by 2 boxes:  User Name and Serial Number.  Oops, no serial number with the others in my account, no seriial number on the order confirmation email.  Tried “trial” and still no go.

8.5 beta is still working.  Maybe I should uninstall C8Pro, clean registry, and reinstall?  Is there some way to point 8.5 to the files I’ve installed so far under C:ProgramFiles>Carrara8?  I sure would like to play with Carrara this weekend, instead of waiting until Monday when DAZ opens.

Hi Anne smile

If you’ve just bought C8 through the store here, then the serial number should be in your account , under available serial codes.

note: you may need to change the page settings to display all of the serial numbers you have, or flick through the pages, since it only displays the first ten or so.

In the 8.5 beta,. you can add any folders to the browser. (there’s a little icon at the right of the browser, where you can select “add folder” then browse.
You may need to select which type of content is in the folder before carrara will show anything,. EG: Shaders, Objects, atmosphere’s etc..

but you can run the beta without the Carrara native content.

If you have DS 4.5 installed, or poser , then carrara should have found those already, and added them to the browser, Content, and Smart Content tabs.

You can also use,..  File / Open, then browse to load a file from the C8 content.

I hope the serial number is in your account and you don;t have to wait until Monday

You *may* want to hold off on installing the beta… the current serial number is set to expire Nov 1. Most likely we will just get a new serial number (Sticky post at the top of the Carrara forum) to extend it, but there’s a (very) slight chance we could get a new version of the beta….

I just did the 3-pay and first, a lot of the files were repeated. I’m thinking I saw as many as 4 copies of some downloads…. I was going to sort through that before starting the install.

But…..

I have checked my registration numbers in my account and no new registration for Carrera has appeared. This would be the 11th number for me… No Page 2 appears and when I set it to show 20 numbers, still no number in there.

So, I guess I’m stuck until Monday.

Now, why on earth would I believe that the Daz store would work like it should over the weekend? smile There are issues on the PC 99 cent sale as well where they all disappeared… yes… during the weekend. Does this equate to shooting oneself in the foot?

I also just purchased Carrara 8 Pro for the discounted sale price and don’t have any new serial numbers. I also don’t have a download link to the latest final version “Carrara_8.1.1.12_Win64.exe - pc”. I only have a link to the 32 bit version (Carrara_8.1.1.12_Win32.exe - pc). I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I would love to run the software I purchased. Anyone?

Duh. I missed that. There is the one for 64bit 8.5 beta but none for 8 64bit. :( So, it’s Saturday night… have some free time…. spend some money to have some fun and suddenly it starts to rain… and not water.

I don’t think there was a 64-bit for 8.1.1.12.  Think I read that 64-bit support is new with 8.5..

Evidently the lack of a serial number and doubling of downloadable files is common.  I filed a support ticket on it yesterday morning.  Those of you who are having this problem should file a ticket also.  Maybe that will get their attention.

I look at this as another indication that the 8.5 release will be in November.

Under “What’s Included” for Carrera Pro 8 it states:

NEW in PRO - 64-bit support for MAC and WIN OS - Work faster and smarter as you take full advantage of your computer’s 64-bit hardware.

This is under Pro 8. I wasn’t looking at 8.5. But…. just because it says it doesn’t make it so. wink We know that positively.

just a thought,.. what about the Trail period ?,... Carrara should run in trial mode for 30 days as the full Pro version, whether you have a serial number or not. then it’ll either time out, or revert back to standard, or continue as Pro,.. depending on your serial number.

Hi AtticAnne smile

Carrara 8.0 was the first version to have 32bit and 64 bit support,. BUT,... the 64bit is only in C8 PRO.
so the C8 standard version,.. is only 32bit,..

As far as I’m aware, the same will apply to the Carrara 8.5 when it’s released.

the Beta comes as 64bit and 32 bit,..  PC and MAC,  to allow everyone to test it out.

The doubled downloads are only there because of the Beta being available to carrara owners right now,. and normally you’d only see the one set of files. (excluding the fact that you’ll see both Mac and PC versions)
but they should be named either 8 or 85 to help you identify which is which.

also, the beta files, should only be the main program, and the render node. as there’s no native content, or bonus files included with the beta.

Hope it helps smile

You can see that the Mac 64bit version is in the list but the Windows 64bit version only shows for 8.5. From what I’m reading, I should install version 8 Pro as the 8.5 Beta is set to expire around the first of next month. And, I really don’t like starting out on a new application under a beta version as the learning curve is enough on an active version.

Also, I cannot find a trial download for Carrera anywhere on the website. I really don’t want to install the 32bit version, then turn around and uninstall it and reinstall in a day or few.

I simply add this to my list of being smacked in the face for trying to support Daz with my money… yet again. So, I bought Poser and will start learning things over there for now.

I too have filed a support ticket. Most likely I’ll have my ‘fix’ by Tuesday.

Thanks for posting the list, dumarian.  It’s the same as mine.  Also note that both AfterEffects are for Mac.

In the meantime I am usiing 8.5 which I installed a while back.  I manually added the content from 8 to 8.5 until Wendy tipped me off that I could just use the installers.  That made it much quicker.

The list is sooooo long, I get tired of reading through it. LOL!!! Again, I hope the sort by OS function comes back to the DL area. And, thank you very much for the heads up on AfterEffects. I’ll keep a watch out for that. I actually don’t even know what I’m supposed to get with the product and am relying on Daz for a ‘proper delivery’. I sort of noticed that was missing, but assumed it was included in one of the other installers for the Windows version or somewhere else within the huge list…. but one should never assume. I bought the 2 PC10 items at the same time, so had like 200 items on my list which at show 50 was back to page 4. I didn’t try the links in the email as I figured each one would fire up a new browser tab.

There seems to be so many amateur mistakes in the whole store area. Someone seems to be either overworked (or underworking) as something like this ‘Special Launch’ should have been completely tested. I’m really trying hard to be calm and forgiving, but my wounds are getting crusty with all the salt being rubbed into them. Now that gives me an idea for a render challenge! smile

Thanks for the list, dumorian smile

Now i can see why it’s so confusing,.
it looks like the beta version IS coming with additional content which is strange.

the key files you need for Carrara 8 are….

C8_NativeContent_8.0.0.4_Mac.zip - mac (download)
C8_NativeContent_8.0.0.4_Win.exe - pc (download)

Carrara_8.1.1.12_Mac32_i386.zip - mac (download)
Carrara_8.1.1.12_Mac32_ppc.zip - mac (download)
Carrara_8.1.1.12_Mac64.zip - mac (download)
Carrara_8.1.1.12_Win32.exe - pc (download) 

depending on your system and Mac OS version.

for the beta of 8.5, the files you need are…

Carrara_8.5.0.132_Mac32_i386.zip - mac (download)
Carrara_8.5.0.132_Mac64.zip - mac (download)
Carrara_8.5.0.132_Win32.exe - pc (download)
Carrara_8.5.0.132_Win64.exe - pc (download)

The After effects download look like it’s been named incorrectly….

C8_After_Effects_Plugin_2.0.2.231_Win.zip - mac (download)

the “Win.zip” part of this suggests that it’s for PC, and NOT mac.

It also looks like the 8.5 beta , and render node, are listed twice,. and there’s No render node listing for the C8.1.1.12 version

at least it gives the Daz3D staff something to do on Monday smile

As for the Bonus content,. .. there’s no difference in the versions for C8 or the beta, so you can download the V4 / M4 stuff, and the carrara High res shaders for those figures,.  plus Digital painters brushes samplers, and Howies snow scene etc..

Any Daz figures, clothing, and the Powerloaders ... should be installed to either a Poser Runtime (no need for the powerloaders in poser) or into your Daz Studio / my library,.. which is the only program where the powerloaders will work.

All the other Carrara specific files should be installed into the same folder where you install Carrara.

you only need to install the Render Node, if you’re using a network of computers to render.

you only need the AE plugin if you’re using After effects. and it should be added to your Adobe After effects Plugins folder.
also,. multi-pass rendering and compositing in AE is probably a better option.

The BETA of C8.5 MUST be installed into a separate New folder EG: Daz3D/Carrara_beta.

Hope it helps smile
