    Mine isn't an execution problem...it's just being SLOW (12 hrs to do a test render of about 1/4 the scene!).  Plus I'm having trouble finding some textures, no it's not that I can't find ones that would work...it's that nature is not being cooperative (waiting for some leaves to scan).

    That sounds intriguing.

    Well...the slowness is from a bazillion transmapped leaves...with shadows, occlusion, translucency...

    It might be faster to render in Luxrender...surprise

    Yup!  Just attach a list of all the freebies you used for your render and a link to where you found them.

    Welcome to the Freebie Challenge!  (and the insanity that is us!) laugh

    Thank you for the info and for the warm welcome :D I'm loving daz community! I kind of have an idea for the contest, but I will need an item -freebie- I have no idea where to get! Or if that even exists... Maybe I will just go without that one and explain in the picture description :P

    What is the freebie you are looking for... there's a lot of folks with literally years of freebie hunting experience who might be able to point the way... or at least get you very, very lost!  cheeky

    OMG haha, I definitely don't want to be lost! But a little help to find myself wouldn't be bad! ((Since postwork is not allowed, I will need the item that comes ready itself)). Can I just ask for the item here? It won't be a surprise anymore haha! If there's no problem I will tell :)

    One of the reasons for the Freebie Challenge starting in the first place was to help people find freebies.  so ask away.

    This one is also available at ShareCG:  Parfum Flacon

     

    Also on ShareCG:  Perfume Bottle

     

    I have not used any of them.  This is what I found after a quick search.

    Poser files usually go under Runtime...I was at work when I found them and did not download.  I will do so and take a look at what is in the zips.

     

     

    Editted to add:

     

    The Parfum Flacon and the dressing table set have Runtime files.  These go in your Runtime folder in My Library.

    The other perfume bottle I linked is in a format that is actually not compatible with DAZ.  I wasn't sure if it could be imported as an object file but DAZ does not recognize the format.

    I am including screenshot of my Content Library so you can see the path to the items.  I actually have a separate library called My Freebie Library where I put my Freebies...I got tired of trying to figure out which items I paid for and which ones where free.  frown

    Thank you.  The dressing table set is quite nice...wish I had it for my entry.

     

    I know what you mean...it does take some time to get used to when someone changes their Avatar.

    You might want to double check to see if content manager is pointing to the right directory for Poser files vs. Daz files.  Check your preferences.

    I wish I could show you a screen shot but I'm no where near my home computer.  

  • Another thing you can do is peek into the zip file and see how they packaged the file.  Sometimes the folks who produce the freebies don't follow standard Poser directory formats so stuff just gets lost in the runtime.

    Skywalker Oh yeah, I checked both folders in Daz and it's not in any! ;_; and I decided to make new folders myself and I think I deleted something important, now in my Poser directories I only have "My daz 3d library" and the new one I made that I can't delete, but I had another one that I deleted by mistake that was called "My library"... I don't know what was in there ;___;

    Kismet thank you! I hope it looks good when I make it! :) Still collecting the items~

    which file did you donwload

    The Perfume Flacon   has a runtime, inside that is a geometry folder called blue-coeur which has OBJs and MTLs.   a libraries folder which has Materials and Props  folders also called blue-coeur  and a texture folder called blue-coeur.

     

    I can tell you where to put these in a poser runtime, but it needs someone who uses DS to tell you where they go in a DS runtime.
