Hi everyone, I just thought I should post a quick update to let you all know where I've been and what I've been up to since I have been very inactive lately. In March, I purchased computer components to build a new PC. The computer is up and running and has been great so far. I'm currently working on making sure all of my DAZ Studio content works in my fresh installs of DS 3 and DS 4.8, with some difficulty. I have found out how to get my old save files to open in 64bit, but I cannot for the life of me get Dynamic Cloth to work even after reinstalling it within the new installs. I may need to submit a ticket to support to resolve it. Files saved in DS4 now do open, which is a relief since I have avoided using it for years because of this issue. I have gotten to fiddle with Iray a bit and have a simple test image I'm working on with Sarovanya, which I will post when I finish with it (working out Iray shader settings for M4 and V4 as they are still my go to models). Once I get Studio all set, I can reassemble my old PC for a backup.
Along with this, I have been having issues with my neck and shoulders for the past 3 months, possibly do to stress or repetitive motion (handheld gaming injury?). Currently the pain has subsided, but it's been touchy, and when it's bad I can't use the computer or DS, draw, etc.
The past week, we had been vacationing in Cleveland for the Transplant Games of America (BF's mother had a kidney transplant and participates in the games. She took home 5 medals!). It was a very good time, we all got sunburned, tried a lot of new things and saw probably everything in Cleveland we wanted to. Now it's back to the grind and working on getting my computer where it needs to be. Hope everyone's been well, and I will try to play some catchup on commenting.
