    All either still beyond my user abilities or for Unity which is also beyond my user abilities 

    I try Unity often and end up uninstalling it, Unreal Game engine I can do a few things with but Unity just frustrates me with code errors that might as well be in Ferengi or Klingon.

    I know you mean well and are very clever, there in lies the problem, you underestimate how dumb I actually am blush

    I play with and do stuff but it’s a baby playing with power tools, I download a lot of stuff and try and read much but it just does not work well in my little brain, free no harm but if I actually buy stuff and too dumb to use it it’s even more frustrating,

    I went there with Zbrush, 5 years later I am finally able to actually do stuff in it but for $800 to take 5 years to get the basic functionality of a program figured out a bit and still vast gaps in my abilities it was a crazy mad outlay of money for me on my limited income!

    Actually have no issues buying a text to speech app if it’s easy to use out the box, not dependent on other software I cannot use and in English!

    I never figured out Marvellous Designer, 3Dcoat or 3DSMax or Maya  either but fortunately only did demos,

    but I am not visually impared and don't intend robbing the blind

    Acapella I already know about and it is extremely expensive to license for youtube

    this is more complicated that it appears I have been using TTS for years and aware of the pitfalls so stick to the Microsoft voices in my TTS readers inc Balbolka

    Google speech got me excited as sounds good and was cheap but it has no easy user interface so sadly useless to me

    i been looking all week for free javascripts and such

    to make a mp4 video gallery on my site to show my carrara clips.

    this is as close as i came  https://html5box.com/html5lightbox/index.php

    i upgraded my site to unlimited bandwidth, in case thousands of people want to look at my videos  lol

    and i don't want any goo gul analytics or advertiser hoo-ee on my pages.  i paying for a non-free site to not have ads devil

    basically, i want like a thumbnail of a char in a purple mankini and the link will start the mp4

    and no manual coding, want it to pull the link and caption from mysql.

    it's a lot to ask for from someone who don't know the php yet lol

    signed up for this  https://codepen.io/pen/tour/welcome/4  supposedly is the way to make custom skins.

    I might be barking up wrong tree, but do you know Jalbum (Swedish company)? It's very inexpensive. I have a really really old licence (paid maybe $15 for it in 2010). There are no ads on it and it still works for my husband's old school photo galleries as I didn't want to take up space on the school site server as we have several hundred high quality and high mb large photos of student classes and other stuff. But it actually looks like part of our site as I link to it in any way I like. I have never upgraded and they don't bug me about it.

    Anyways, they have long moved on and offer a lot of features.  https://jalbum.net/en/software/features

    i dont understand what the hexagon bridge does?

    ideally, would be nice to save a model without ever having to save it as a wavefront obj

    Working on something in Hexagon you can use the "Bridge" to send the item to Daz Studio without saving in Hex.  Or you could be working on an item in Daz Studio you can then use the "Bridge" to send the item to Hexagon, make some modiications in Hex and then sent it back to Daz.  I guess that's the short and sweet version

  • WendyLuvsCatzWendyLuvsCatz Posts: 22,549

    Hexagon can save as a .car file in fact it is easier to load big meshes from it this way in Carrara.

  • MystarraMystarra Posts: 32,555

    thank you

    hexagon seems more like wings3d, which is the modeller i grew up with.

    seems safer to avoid translating vertex model to obj.

    found a mp4 player skin i really like

    https://html5box.com/html5gallery/demo_vertical.php

    even has a tutt to use php  https://html5box.com/html5gallery/phpservice.php

    i really don't want to code a page for each video clip.

    i uninstalled that rediculous new vegas version and went back to v 10.  
    now i got 2 diff versions installed on 2 pcs. amazon doesn't have the v11 no moars.
    tho i still longing for final cut pro, but need a mac first.
    i got an older version of acid around.  one bad thing about buying retail versions, finding it again years later. lol

    all my efforts to upgrade my softwares for win10 has been a dismal failure.

     

    does the dson for poser support geografts?

    there no free base figures for dawn and dusk. cant try em before buying the morphs and stuff.
    learned dusk is not complete, poor dude.

    even thought about trying DIM.  *gasp*  lol

    i used to store all my prod d/l but  i needed the drives to store avi files.
    need to get it all downloaded again. lost track.
    tougher now with all the webp crappe

     

    ugh the free version of lightbox has a watermark.  is bux to get a version without the watermark.

    When I get desperate and Hitfilm won’t meet my mp4 needs (mainly the huge 360 videos) I use Blender!

    it has a video sequence editor and has mp4 encoding

    newest Blender much easier UI
