I am going to put my project aside for a bit and try my hand at some "sexy" renders and what I choose to call 3D "painting" (just like realistic expression of a concept on canvas except using 3D models & materials). Will only use Gimp where absolutely necessary for the latter as that sort of defeats the idea.
I have tens of hours of products to download and install first, as well as migrating to Daz 4.6.3 Pro from Daz 4.5.9 Pro. Hope all goes well.
Update 8/8 : Migration went smoothly. Now to the install/download/install cycle for about a week as it turns out I actually have hundreds of products to deal with.
Update 9/8 : Still working through my products and now I have to get a new 1TB internal drive for my raid1 which failed yesterday. This will be the last update to this journal as I am sure no one is really interested in further developments.
