So... Genesis 3 is out... Welcome to refitting hell dear DAZ users
And just when I was starting to consider tanking a good look at G2, since there is finally enough support for it to maybe, probably, make it a viable option for me... It seams it was not meant to be - if G3 is out than whatever progress have been made towards using Genesis in Poser is done with.
The last couple of days I was agonizing over picking a direction - DAZ studio for better base models or Poser for better... Well everything else really. In the end it occurred to me that waiting again is probably the best bet - Genesis 4 is likely not that far away, given rate of model releases so far, so I may as well skip the generation until they actually settle on something complete and done with. And who knows - the next version of Poser is probably not that far away as well, maybe they will solve the comparability issue - it is clear that DAZ has no people capable of doing it, but Poser has an actually good coding team, so if enough demand for it exists they will manage.
I was although messing around with Reality as well - I really wanted to make Reality skin presets for my new character set but I ran out in to a simple problem - rendering times. Getting an image that gives me any idea about the final look of a texture setting takes half a day, tweaking bump and specular maps at that rate? It'll take month for one skin set... Thankfully the next reality update promises GPU rendering and x10 speed up as a result - great news and something I will likely have to wait for.
Bottom line - waiting is the order of business it seams
But I'll try and make a couple of good pictures while I'm at it
