The Dawn of A New Era
Dawn is the latest in a long line of historically significant figures developed by Chris Creek, creator of the original Poser figures, Dork and Posette, as well as the original Michael and Victoria figures. Created with both Poser and DAZ Studio users in mind, Dawn will be available in two versions: one with native Poser files compatible with Poser 9 and above, and another with native DAZ Studio files compatible with DAZ Studio 4.5 and above.
In a collaborative approach like never before - Renderosity, RuntimeDNA, Poser World, YURdigital and HiveWire 3D are working with merchants across the community to create supporting content for Dawn. All are welcome to join this effort.
"It's very exciting to see a new wealth of creativity and community wide collaboration on the horizon with the release of Dawn. This is a very unique opportunity to come together and celebrate the talent and passion for art we all share across each of these communities". - Tommy Lemon, Vice President of Renderosity
"Through the combined efforts of this wonderful community at large, we will achieve great things with Dawn. But perhaps a more important outcome will be the unity we can realize". - Chris Creek, Founder of HiveWire 3D
"We are extremely excited about the new Dawn figure and the opportunity to create content for such an excellent 3D figure. We think this could finally be the perfect Poser character to work with". ~ Allen Harkleroad of PoserWorld.com
"I am awake and dreaming. Today four communities stand together shoulder to shoulder with someone who developed the most widely used figures in the history of our industry. How wonderful an opportunity it is to combine efforts with such historically vibrant and successful communities. This like minded group of innovators put their heads together, took a deep breath and walked across the bridge to a brand new future". - Syyd Raven, Founder of Runtime DNA
"The highly anticipated release of the new female figure, Dawn, from the extremely talented team at HiveWire3D will be a breath of fresh air for the Poser and DAZ Studio communities". - Clint Hawkins / YURdigital, LLC CEO & Co-founder
The future of Dawn will be decided by YOU
We stand together because of our shared belief in our communities, its members and creators who are the driving force behind each one of us. We openly invite everyone to participate in this new initiative in whatever way they can. Whether it be in add-on content, utilities, tutorials, renders or anything else, we encourage everyone to find a way to support those around them and help to further this landmark community project.
On August 9, 2013, Dawn will be released to the public at www.hivewire3d.com, with supporting content for Dawn released simultaneously in the marketplaces at; Renderosity, Poser World, RuntimeDNA and YURdigital.
She looks fantastic. She bends so naturally. And her arms and shoulders (always tough areas for Poser figures) look great. She's got the right number of polys, too. She splits the difference between Genesis and V4, which is perfect, IMO. With both Poser and DS having SubD now, there's no need for a V4 sized geometry any more. But I do like the better definition you get with more polys than Genesis has.
Stand-alone figures for Poser/Daz haven't had the best track record. However, the overwhelming support from artist and vendors alike, may just tip the scales in Dawn's favor. Wishing the entire group of talented artists behind the project much success. I am eager to get my hands on her!
I am an Independent content creator merchant with a well know site, that has two large online stores for 3D product, will I get a chance to work on Content for dawn our will it only be limited to only to Daz, RDNA,& Renderosity merchant content creators at this time? I have sent an e-mail thru my wifes facebook page ,I don't facebook, because I could not find a direct E-mail this is the only way I could send it.
Very exciting that so many parts of the community are coming together for this!! Just to help, with some info that's been posted elsewhere. cedarwolf - Dawn will be free initially JohnMichael - Hivewire3d.com isn't "down", the site has not yet launched :) PhilC is aware of things. Elcet-she is weightmapped, so unfortunately can't be compatible with earlier versions of Poser that don't support that :( There's a HUGE thread here with TONS of info: http://www.renderosity.com/mod/forumpro/showthread.php?thread_id=2868999&page=1
