      Yes, apparently. Not Ken Gilland’s (of songbird remix) though.

      because Daz is a bit snobbish! they did that also to some sellers who opted renderosity store, and now they are approaching hivewire because they are probably no items to sell or they need more income.

        They want to control All of it and shut down and future sales of Poser Products.

        • Blazer 6 months, 1 week ago

          I don’t think that’s true. It’s been up to PAs to create what they want, Poser or DAZ content. It should be up to Smith Micro to come up with something to engage the public’s interest in Poser. DAZ, understandably is focused on developing and rolling out products that will work with DAZ Studio, their own program.

            DAZ has changed a lot in the last years. I don’t know that first hand, because I am using Daz only for around 1 and a half years now, but from what I read, in the past they were focused on the content and since Genesis 3 their primary focus is on the income. There are discussions that are pointing out how little the improvements of Genesis 8 over Genesis 3 are and that Genesis 8 mainly exists to generate new income to Daz. So the idea that Daz has an agenda against Poser, doesn’t sound so impossible.

            • Blazer 5 months, 3 weeks ago

              DAZ is a revenue generating company, so of course they will always be focused on generating income, as with any other company that rely on revenue in order to keep operating. As far as DAZ having an agenda against Poser, I don’t know about that, but DAZ does have their own application and it only makes sense that they will put it first and foremost ahead of Poser, which they no longer really support. Why would they want to generate income for a software that has nothing to do with their own? And many of the Published Artists can’t be bothered to create Poser version of their products, such as Stonemason. At the end of the day, it’s all up to the artist how they want to present their product.

              DAZ has not made any changes to the software that will prevent users from using Genesis 3 related products. No one is being forced to purchase Genesis 8 related products if they don’t want to. I’m still using Genesis 3 a lot even though I purchased G8F/V8.

              I don’t work for DAZ, I just find it funny that so many people complain about how DAZ is not supporting Poser or how DAZ only cares about selling their products. It’s really all just common sense.

              I was just repeating what I’ve read and that there are many signs that support what Dave Harley wrote.

          Poser is in many eyes dead already and releasing there content is not worth it as market share of Poser is not so strong plus after firing almost whole US based team like is Teyon,Nerd3D and many others not sure if we will see new instalment of Poser soon

          When you are looking at new releases elsewhere mostly we will see G3,G8 and G2 and releasing new content for V4 or Poser specific is not worth as previously,most of people right now have Genesis and DS and Poser is in minority although many vendors still rather rehashing their old V4 and V3 etc stuff to Genesis and DS

          I still prefer to work with Poser and I mostly render now with Poser rather than with DS,I export everything as OBJ and render in Poser or in 3DS MAX,which is better,hard to say,I prefer UI of Poser and Material Room where creating material doesn’t take so long

          If DAZ3D have agenda against the Poser community,have look on RDNA and their forums,they’re promised they will keep that forum running but after few months,forum is gone and have look on DAZ3D marketplace how many items you will find there for Poser as compatible new content,its not as much as for DS which is normal as they’re have own app DS

        Ken used to sell his stuff at DAZ, just like the maker of Lisa’s Botanicals. I think it is up to the PA wether they want to join or re-join DAZ or not. And maybe some do not agree with the contract DAZ offers them so they choose not to go to DAZ.

        • myducky666 6 months, 1 week ago

          most of my lisa’s botanicals stuff i got at daz years ago for just a few bucks. when daz3d took over rdna all the prices skyrocketed. i hope hivewire can maintain it’s independence. Mortem Vetus left daz3d and went to rendo for their new releases because they don’t like creating for daz studio as much as Poser.

          • Blazer 6 months, 1 week ago

            Yes, when I bought all my lisa’s botanicals from DAZ, they were very inexpensive. Hivewire sells them for a lot more these days. I actually think the prices at Hivewire is a lot more than at DAZ, reason I don’t buy my contents there.

            • myducky666 6 months, 1 week ago

              they are very expensive. i got her flowers for two bucks at daz. they run between 13 to 15 bucks for the same flowers there now.

    • Blazer 5 months, 1 week ago

      well it looks like DAZ has had a change of mind and no longer carry Hivewire animals, huh? https://community.hivewire3d.com/threads/official-announcement-daz-terminates-agreement-to-publish-hivewire-3d-animals.2188/#post-107302
