After enabling the beta test setting in my profile, I now have access to DA Eclipse and just spent nearly an hour with it.

The only thing I like is the grid layout when browsing and searching for content.  It's a significant improvement over the single column we currently get.

My chief complaint, among several other issues I have, is that the space provided for your cover image is needlessly large and dominates every other section of your page.

Overall, I will never recommend Eclipse in its current form.

Matthew Hutchinson
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
My name is Matthew "Nyghtfall" Hutchinson. I was born in September 1971. I've been married since October 1994, and make my living as a Customer Service Rep for a bank. My wife is permanently disabled. We are child-free by choice - we don't want that kind of expense or responsibility.

My Fetish

I’m a fantasy death fetishist. That means I get off on watching consenting adults role-play fantasy death scenes. Whether in mainstream movies, TV shows, or independent fetish videos, it doesn’t matter. If it’s well-produced, I'm interested.

My fetish dates back to my youth. Thanks to relatively liberal parents and a neighborhood friend's Mom, I saw a lot of Horror movies by the time I was 13, starting with The Exorcist at age 10. By age 15, I was getting bored with their formulaic storylines, particularly Slasher flicks. They just weren’t scary anymore, so I started watching them just to see how many different ways filmmakers could kill off a bunch of stupid coeds. In other words, like most Horror movie fans today, I started rooting for the villains. Over time, I developed a strong preference for asphyxiation. Having often held my own breath to the point of nearly passing out to cure hiccups, I can’t imagine a scarier way to die. Consequently, I love watching other people pretend to be asphyxiated to death.

Why 3D Art

In 1994, I joined the World Wide Web shortly after it went public. Three years later, I discovered a website called Necrobabes and learned that I'm not the only one who gets off on watching people play dead. I've been a highly active member of the fantasy death fetish community ever since and collected many videos, photos, and various types of artwork. I’ve also become very selective with what I add to my collection.

By 2004, I felt an overwhelming need to create my own art. Unfortunately, custom fetish videos are prohibitively expensive to finance, and I can’t afford to shoot my own videos or draw anything more complex than stick figures.

How I Got Started

In 2006, I learned about a company called DAZ 3D. They developed a digital art and 3D animation program called DAZ Studio, and continue offering it freely to anyone interested in learning how to create 3D art. I was intrigued by the idea of bringing my own fantasies to life in a virtual environment. The opportunity to try it for free was irresistible, so I downloaded a copy and gave it a whirl. Much to my surprise, I found the learning curve rather steep, particularly with regard to how content is organized between DAZ Studio and Poser. I spent the next three years just noodling around with Studio.

In August 2009, I finally started my first project, called Darcy Strangled, and completed it in September that year. I also developed a strong interest in photorealism. At the time, DAZ Studio wasn’t going to work for my needs, so I switched to Poser for its advanced functionality and enormous community support.

Since then, many significant improvements have been made to DAZ Studio and Poser. Today, artists have access to features that were once only available in high-end, professional applications. As of June 2015, DAZ Studio is my tool of choice thanks to a newly-licensed, built-in render engine called Iray, and I could not be happier.

That is terrible news, but not surprising. All your research and efforts going for nothing. The site will be sorely missed. Thanks for being around so long for us -:(

Thanks.  I've enjoyed Dreamhost's "unlimited" storage and bandwidth under my current plan, but am surprised it lasted this long.
