If, like me, you use the excellent PZDB (my review) to find and load DAZ 3D and Poser content, then you’ll be interested to hear that there’s now a free upgrade patch from Rocketship.
Get PzDB 1.2.5. Warning: you will need to do a full reindex of your 3d collection after patching, so don’t update just before you start in on a deadline job.
It now supports those pesky new types of DAZ files…
“PzDB 1.2.5 now indexes and supports all current DAZ Studio filetypes, in addition, DAZ Studio files are now sorted among PzDB Categories as follows: DAZ files are still DAZ Scenes; DS, DSB, DSE, DSA, DSX and now DUF and DSF files are listed as DAZ Scripts; DSO, DSD, and DSVs are considered Geometries; DSI, DCB, and DBMs are listed as Materials; DBC is a Camera; and a DBL is a Light.”
It can also now double as an entertainment media index, since it now supports…
“AVI, MPG, MP4, MOV, and WMV files and … MP3, WAV, WMA, and FLAC files”
PzDB 1.3 Beta Testing has also started…
“The PzDB 1.3 Public Beta Test is open to all PzDB 1.X Licensees.”
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
