Re: Free DAZ Pro 3D Software through Feb. 29

Oh lord, the downloads are in multiple modules instead of one-per-program. There must be 2 dozen DLs for three programs. This'll take a while.

Half of them are the mac d/ls, and there are 64-bit and 43-bit versions so it's not actually that many...

Re: Free DAZ Pro 3D Software through Feb. 29

Yeah, I see that now.
Got the same thing when I bought Bryce 6 and some extras a few years ago, though - scads of DLs instead of just one for each program. Not a fan of the system, but hey, it's free!

Anybody else finding the Bryce Pro Content EXE won't load for them? Or am I just being technologically unlucky again?

Didn't try that one as I already have it...

Redownload. Mine kept crashing half way through the install. Then again, I was running w(h)ine.

No wonder it's free - Studio just failed to install properly and fucked up my computer

^ What happened, mate? "Fucked" is a rather broad description.

Wine, sometimes known as Whine, is an application that makes it possible to run windows software on Ubuntu, for instance. Basially it fools the app into thinking it installs and runs on an windows machine. Its basically a glorified emulator.

The hell is Ubuntu!?

Anyhoo, it was my mistake - I tried to install the 64-bit version on my 64-bit computer. Silly me. The 32-bit version installed fine.

Didn't have any problems installing the 64-bit version, nor any download issues. All my frustrations stem from the lack of documentation, and error messages like, "This product requires another product in order to be isntalled," and doesn't tell you WHAT product that might be! Turns out I HAD the other product, but it wasn't in the same "default" directory that this 'dependent' product set as a default. The D|S installation routines are only a little idiotic, to say the least, but I have finally managed to get the content installed to the point where I can now start learning the program.

Don't bother looking for manuals - their documentation wiki is pretty half-assed, and several items in "Help" just say, "Coming Soon" (thanks, DAZ!!); however, each of the tabs in the program contain links to some fairly helpful YouTube videos on each of the program's major tools.

Si, the YouTube vids got me started. There's not a lot of content in Studio to play with, though. Need to find some current US soldier clothes and weapons for what I want to do. And some TNG-era Starfleet stuff.
