  • How does one add their profile picture?

    One goes to their profile by clicking on ones name,  and then one clicks on the blue gear icon and then on edit profile.   All sorts of things one can do there

  • Hi. Been working at this for two weeks and I'm hooked. This must seem to be a silly question but here goes.....

    I am working with three models and I am getting tired of remembering which is Manu, which is Dain and which is Genesis 8 male. I'd like to give them names like "Bob" or something, but left clicking on the file name in the scene tab does not give that option. How do I change their names? 

    I know, of all the problems I COULD have I should be thankful this is the biggest one right now, but it's annoying. :)

    Thanks in advance.

    yeah the pause is important :D

    What I would like to now is, if you change a items name or a Charname, is there a way to find the originalname? sometimes its good to know it so you can look for variations like hairstyle or something.

    Also for custom content, you could know where it was saved.

    lucky in this case I know its ishimoto.

    maybe, I can check the surface and see it there, but at the char, I can't see it :D

  • Hi, I am using this product on Daz Studio 4.12 Pro

    https://www.daz3d.com/flirty-school-uniform-for-genesis-8-female-s

    I am not able to use secondary morphs for shirt/skirt (E.G. open shirt).

    What have I to do to use it?

  • POSTGRESQL CONNECT for MAC

    If you are having any issue connecting PostgreSQL:

    The web department has suggested that you uninstall Daz Studio and the PostgreSQL. Then go to Library\Application Support\Daz 3D\CMS and rename or remove the ContentCluster folder and the cmscfg.json file located there.

    If you can not see your Application Support folder, please go to Go (found at the top of your Mac) > Go To Folder > Copy and paste exactly what I put in between the parentheses (~/Library) > then go to the Application Support folder.

    Once you have done that, reinstall first Daz Studio and then the PostgreSQL CMS (make sure you are not installing as Root Admin). Then open Daz Studio and re-import metadata, with the box checked that userdata overwrites product data.

    To do this, right click on the Content Library pane, choose Content DB Maintenance, tick Re-Import Metadata, click Accept. Tick User Data and All Products and click Accept.
     

    SHOUTOUT TO AMY.

    How can I fix my username for the forums?  It's got a string of numbers after it and it is very annoying.  Couldn't find anywhere or anything that even touches on the subject.
    Thank you.

  • First time posting on this forum. Please help with these 2 issues I have after installed and ran Daz

    How do you get back to the original window (default window when you first bring up Daz 3D)? I did something and now I am seeing only 1 big screen (No panels on the left or right to load in the figure or adjust paramameters)

    I am seeing a big screen with these following options:

    Perspective View option

    Display the Draw style option

    Perspective view option

    and the View Orbit, Pan, Zom, Frame and Reset view 

    Tried all of them and can not get back to the original screen

    Also how do you dock the Power Pose otion to the right of the panel? The tutorial does not show you how to do it

    spent hours on this still can not sort it out

    Thanks for the helps. 

    Dat N

  • I am new to DAZ and have had a coupon for some free stuff (and for the first four days - which have expired i think) but have no idea what I can download or what is best to start with. I added a few things to the cart and coupon code was invalid (recieved it today).  I am not new to 3D modelling but I am clueless where to start here.

    What coupon is that, and what are you trying to purchase? Is there anything else in the cart?

    It was an email from DAZ saying:  'Your Special Gift Just for you, get 5 Free Items. Use coupon code at checkout.' I put Victoria 5, Victoria 8, Underbelly Bundle, Fall wardrobe for Genesis 8 female, casual outfits for genesis 8 male.

    Did it say any 5 items or was there a link for a selection of items you could choose from? Or was there maybe a mention that it excludes some types of items, like for example new items?

    Sure thing, that's what I'd expect too - a guide to eligibility. There was nothing in the small printn nor was there when I had the 'one free item per day for four days', so these offers were wasted. The rest of the text reads: Expand your library! Create incredible scenes with free characters, props and environments. Simply follow the link below and select 5 items for free.... The link took me to the front page of the store, not to a particluar folder or anything. 

  • I emailed Daz and they kindly sent me a link to the eligible products page! Thank you for responding to my string :)

    This may sound like a stupid question but is there a way to run something that you're working on through the renderer more than once I'm still trying to get my renders to come out better and I'm playing around with some of the settings but it just doesn't take very long to render even when I set it to where it supposed to continually go.

    Hi folks!

    I started this Daz journey in June 2020. Learning how to use Daz and the various content has been challenging, but fun. Then there is the artistic side of things; lighting, texture, angle, etc; truly a new world for me.  Fortunately I have good good teachers – you guys. The members who post their renders in the Daz gallary are so very creative and talented. All I can say is WOW. You have stretched my brain in so many directions and I thank you for it.

    Regards
