It could be that they have not worked all of the kinks out of adding a beta release to everyone's downloads in the new store yet so had to do under the old store.

Also, from what I read, you can only have DS4 or 4.5 on your system, but not both. And trying to go back from 4.5 to 4 sounds like somethign out of the Cthluhu Mythos... ;)

Quote - Off topic what were they thinking over at DAZ?  Put out a new beta version of studio the shut the site for any forum or technical support?? I am glad I am a Reality use and need to wait a bit....

It does make you ask who is responsible for coordination ar DAZ. The timing could not have been any worse. First of all, I am completely against public betas, second, who decided that it was the right time to do it just the day before the new site went live?

There are things that happen at DAZ that baffle me.

Anyway, I am glad that we have this thread as the DAZ forum, as anticipated, is completely inaccessible. 

Btw, it's 3:52am in Italy, I am unable to sleep suffering from a 9 hour time difference and quite a long trip :)

Cheers.

Hello.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to post images to this thread.

  • Add your image to the Renderosity gallery, it gives you good artistic karma. Don't forget to credit Reality in the notes, there is a field for it. You first add the vendor name, Pret-a-3d, and then the gallery will show you the name of the product.
  • Once the image is online click on the page that shows the full version.
  • Find the link to the image file embedded in the page and copy the link (aka URL) to the clipboard. See below for how to find the URL.
  • Create a new message in this thread. 
  • Click on th second-to-last icon in the toolbar, the one with the little tree.
  • In the dialog box that shows paste the URL in the first field. 
  • Click on the Adavanced tab and set the width to 600. The height will be adjusted automatically.
  • Press Insert and your image will be added inline to your message.
  • If your image is already on another site, use the URL for that site instead, there is no rule that the image must reside in the Renderosity galleries.

How to find the URL of the image:

  • If you are on a desktop system (Mac or Windows) right click on the image and select  something like "Copy image link". The actual wording changes from browser to browser but you get the gist.
  • If tiu are on iOS yiu should use a browser different from Safari, because Safari doesn't provide this feature. Atomic browser works well but other might be as good.

Hope this helps.

I'm visiting my family for the first time in 14 years... And Alitalia has misplaced my luggage. Hopefully I'll get my suitcase today. Not what you want after a full day or traveling :(

That sucks! I usually carry everything on my back for that very reason (as well as exorbitant check-in fees).

 

Hope it turns up soon!

Thank you Tako. It would have been. Impossible to carry everything with me but I should regain access to my stuff, including a bluetooth keyboard, in a few hours. 

Cheers.

Attached Link: FAQ for the new DAZ 3D Forums

Quick heads-up on the new forums at Daz. Did anyone else notice this in the "FAQ for the new DAZ 3D Forums":

The notification link of a post I’m following doesn’t go directly to the new post.

  • The notification of a new post to a topic you are following will link you to the first post. This is a limitation of the forum software. You will need to navigate to the last post of the topic to see the new comment.

You'll notice that this doesn't say "at this time" or "currently" as some other parts of the FAQ do. Looks like this is a permanent thing.

With a thread that moves as fast as the Reality one always has, this is going to be ridiculous. Whenever I get see an email that there's a new comment, it's an hour or two later and more comments have been added. This is going to mean scrolling around just to find where I got up to for every single thread. Welcome back, 1998!

Attached Link: 'A Lonely Street'

I see there are already several BEAUTIFUL images posted in this thread! wOw!

Aww Paolo.. I hope they find your things soon at the airport! (not 'Daz' soon I hope..)

'A Lonely Street'

Only used 'Sun' (and sky) lights here. The angle of the sun is not the easiest angle to get the lighting right, I can tell you that! :)

The image as you see it now was not the way I envisioned it. Originally I wanted to show the girl in a dress..
Every time I tried to 'drape' the dress Daz crashed instantly to desktop.. :( So in the end I gave her a pair of pants and a bikini top.
Now I ask for help..
My version of DazStudio is 4.0.3.36 Pro (64bit) and I read somewhere that several problems with the Dynamic Clothing Plugin were solved in version 4.0.3.9 (so maybe also the crashing to desktop while draping)
I cannot find that version anywhere, so HELP! Does anyone know where I can find that version?
Thanks in advance for any tips! :)

 Uhm.. that image-insert-thinghy isn't 'blond-proof'...

Awrgh! I found out how to insert the image properly but now I cannot edit my own post??? The button simply isn't there and I am logged in! (is there a max on the 'edit'??)

Well, let's try the image again. (If this doesn't work I'll scream! ;) )A Lonely Street


  DominiqueB    ( ) ( posted at 7:08AM Fri, 18 May 2012  · @3929892

Lovely render Callad, the light is beautiful in this one.

I'm using version 4.0.3.47 Pro 64-bit here and I can drape without crashing so far.

You don't have to scream, callad. The current version of DAZ Studio is 4.0.3.47. This is the one they give away for free.

You should be able to get the latest version by resetting the download in your Daz account, in Itemized Order History.

'A Lonely Street'

Lovely, lovely image. Beautifully composed and lit. What's the street setting BTW - it's great.

*After using the forums (old) at DAZ, the forums here can drive you nuts!! You only have a few minutes (5??) to edit your post, then your locked out of it. I don't remember when they changed it, maybe a year+ ago, but it's a real PITA!!
