Repost useful threads from RDNA.



  • @nagra_00_ said in Repost useful threads from RDNA.:

    I can speak only for myself but regarding my postings in the other forum, i posted there because it was clearly marked as the official Smith Micro forum. Now the official forum found a new home and i do expect that my postings are moved to the new home.

    This logic should apply to all the old posts.



  • I would find it tremendously helpful if we could simply start two threads: one for posting Firefly Mats and another for posting Superfly Mats. Having a single thread to look for Mats would simplify my life immeasurably.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    I generally make hybrid materials that work for both. Where would those go?



  • Good point. Perhaps a single thread for shaders is the better approach.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    I would migrate the useful threads/posts I did have... or at least the information I posted, but no longer have access to the source.

    That being said. I do give my permission for anyone who finds or has a useful thread or reply of mine tagged to copy it over here provided I am credited (or even send the contents to me via chat and I will repost it).
    Some of it I had saved previously to include in tutorials I had toyed with making, but much of it I did not.



  • I think the idea of reposting/summing up all the useful threads would be great, lest they are lost forever when RDNA eventually closes.

    That been said, I'm not sure a single Poser forum could host all this, tags or no tags. Remember, the Poser fora at RDNA were actually split into 8 different fora...
    I fear (and hope) there will be too many different threads going on in this single Poser forum, newbie questions, specialist questions, tutorials, more or less general discussions, WIPs, each time about a different version and feature of Poser, or even about related software (EZSkin, Matmatic, etc.) or content. This single forum will eventually become a huge ocean of stuff with a quite mediocre signal to noise ratio.

    I don't know this forum software, but if it is possible, I'd suggest to have at least a separate "Tutorials" subforum, so the valuable stuff doesn't get drowned in the everyday stuff. Yes, tags and searching should be enough to find stuff, but most people aren't used to using them. Not everybody has a background allowing him to spontaneously think in categories and tags. Most will just use the text search.

    (Just my 2 cents worth.)

    I would tend to agree with rg5a - some subforums within the forums, if possible, would be very useful. A tutorials sub-forum within the basic Poser forum is a good idea to start, but I would also offer that within this tutorials sub-forum, if possible, there be additional subdivisions for either significantly differing aspects of Poser and/or certain large 3rd party plugins (i.e. Materials, Animation, Figure Creation, Basics, Rendering, etc...).
    If I get my motivation back, I will try to collect some of what I had in backups and notes that was helpful and organize it into small tutorials or guides. As I had mentioned elsewhere, I could use and would welcome help, as I no longer have the drive I once did, and health issues as well have reduced my productivity greatly.



  • I was trying to find something else in a forum search when this thread popped up about Laying Floors in Poser. So the thread at RDNA no longer exists, BUT, thee is still one at Renderosity which covers the topic so thought I'd post the link here for anyone still interested.
