Product Notes

  • View the full forum post here: DAZ Studio Beta
  • Updates to this build include but are not limited to: updated Genesis Figure, organized the content, added free content, many updates to the User Interface, including many suggestions from the community. For example, in Render Settings the Custom dimensions option is back at the top of the list, we've added the ability to save your own dimension presets to the list, the My Stuff Tab is now working as designed, and will filter what is shown based on items selected in the viewport (provided the appropriate metadata exists).
  • This build will read all previous generations of content.
  • You will need to use this serial number for the build: SDZBETA-040-0000007-JMZ-001-EBTNWIO (expires 26-May-2011). The problems with pasting the serial number into the interface have been changed and made much more robust. We hope like crazy that users won't have issues with this any more!
  • This version can set side by side with V3.x builds.
  • If you have a previous version of Project X or any DAZ Studio 4.0 build, let this new version uninstall the previous Project X or DS 4. You can do this during the installation of this new build.
    • When installing DS4 to a new directory, it looks for an uninstaller in the new directory, not the old one. So a manual uninstall may be necessary.
    • Please make sure not to install 32- or 64-bit Mac versions on the same machine, and make sure if you've previously installed DS4/Mac, you'll need to install the same bit (32/64-bit) version as you had previously.
    • FOR MAC INSTALLATIONS: If you have installed the Mac version of DS v4.0.0.275, you MUST to do the following:
      • Run the Mac DS4 UNinstaller manually
      • Delete the Mac DS4 install folder
      • Install this new version of DS
  • This is a Beta build of the software. It’s not finished. You should expect to see changes, issues and some crashes. We are still working out many of the details.
  • We are working on a new style and layout to accommodate the more advanced users. This style we hope to have available in the next available build.
  • We need feedback for the following areas:
    • Workflow and UI
    • Workflow using 4th Gen content.
  • Bugs can be logged under the DAZ Studio 4 heading in the bug traker found here:

Known Issues

  • Important: This Beta build will delete any customization to the layout and may not correctly read any of your saved layouts. This build will also clear your DAZ Studio Preferences and Database customizations to the DS 4 database (which includes migrated data from previous versions (so you may have to migrate the old database again). This is due to major development efforts in these areas.
