    • Fixed Issues:

      • Fixed an issue where closing DAZ Studio with an active 3D Bridge would cause the bridge to perform incorrectly when a new Studio was launched.
      • Fixed a crashing issue on pc where importing image maps, then previewing scene at a size greater than 800 x 600 would cause studio to crash.
      • Fixed an issue on Mac where importing image maps repeatedly would result in one of the maps appearing as a blank image in Photoshop.

Known Issues

  • When previewing images through the 3D Bridge and choose the option to import maps on a Mac, Studio will crash. Workaround is to import the maps separately by clicking on the Import Maps button.
  • When exporting image texture maps, the DAZ Studio scene is inconsistently updated. When the scene is updated correctly, the preview image in Photoshop may be updated without additional user input.
  • For Macintoshes, the Studio 3D Bridge only works with Mac OSX for Intels and Photoshop CS3 or CS3X.
  • There are some issues with Photoshop CS2 which places dialogs and error messages behind the DAZ Studio window. If this happens, you will need to resize the DAZ Studio window in order to view the dialogs.
  • Mouse over on Bridge dialog may vanish, will reappear after multiple attempts.
  • Auto Update on Mac may cause Photoshop to stop responding until it is turned off. Closing the Studio scene will automatically turn off auto update. Use Manual Update instead of Auto Update.
  • Random imports of preview image and importing of texture maps will open blank documents. Second attempt corrects the issue.
  • The 3D Bridge does not automatically start on the Mac and must be started manually in DAZ Studio.
