I have been spending the past several months working primarily with the DAZ Studio Public Beta. It’s now the main application in my workflow. It’s much (much) more stable than the main Studio that’s been released.
I still fire up the main Studio though every once in a while if I’m testing content for a PA/ vendor (I’m starting to do that more and more), or to run a plugin that is only installed in the main Studio installation.
But there’s another benefit. When it comes to running dForce simulations on my figures, it’s just SO much easier to save out my figure and it’s clothing (for as many nudes as I tend to do I actually do render clothes every once in a while! LOL!) as a Scene Subset and bring that over into the other copy of Studio running and run the simulation there.
The simulation goes much quicker since I don’t need to worry about anything else in the scene interfering.
Then save out another Scene Subset and import that back into my main scene.
Easy. Peasy. Feezy. Weezy!
