  1. Happy New year! So, I recently tried to import a Human model obj. into Eias 8 and it did not bring in the uvs for some reason, which made applying the map impossible. I could not check use uvs in the group info box. It was greyed out. This is what I did: 1.I imported the file( https://www.food4rhino.com/resource/mei-posed-001) into EIAS 9 DEMO. and applied the map in there. 2. I reexported the model as a validated fact file which gave me the UVS in version 8, but the map still did not apply properly in version 8 for some reason. 3. I had to save the material from version 9 demo as well and then apply that in version 8. Finally, it worked!

    Feature Road Map

    Molten GL might be something that could work on top of Metal. https://moltengl.com/moltengl/ There's a video here: https://cdm.link/2018/06/apple-to-open-source-cross-platform-gpu-tech-drop-dead/

    Feature Road Map

    Here's some more info: https://www.extremetech.com/computing/270902-apple-defends-killing-opengl-opencl-as-developers-threaten-revolt If developers do revolt, it could be a real disaster for 3d on the mac. It sounds like a misguided idea, that will screw up a lot of games and apps. So the plan is to replace it all with Metal?

    I don't have this problem at all in EIAS 8 in the texture map window. I'm using Sierra on a MacMini.

    development news or updates?

    Any teasers for the next release? I see Lightwave has finally released something new. It looks like Daz may be making a 64 bit version of Hexagon and it will be completely free.
  8. Aha! Does that possibly mean a new particle system?:)

    displacement mapping

    Would the Dicer plugin be useful here? In other words, let the plugin increase the resolution of the sphere?

    Modeler for windows installer

    Much appreciated!
  11. Where can I download the installer for the old modeler for windows? I can't seem to find it. I'm trying to see how well the modeler works in windows 7 or 10. It works fine in XP in Parallels on a mac, but that was an old install I did.
  12. I had EIAS 8 working in parallels but the whole Windows went went belly up. Had to reinstall XP. Now I get an error messaage: The configuration is incorrect. Modeler is working. i'm using SP 3.

    Is there a dongle installer for windows?

    EIAS Animator 8 also works well with no screen redraw glitches. The rendering is just slightly slower than on the Mac. Daz programs that don't work in Yosemite like Carrara 7 Pro and Bryce 6.3 both work very well. I got a Pc bench mark tool and the overall performance of Parralels is similar to say a low cost Dell laptop or similar. Overall it's not bad at all.

    Is there a dongle installer for windows?

    Looks like it works! How cool is that? I'm using the late 2014 2.6 ghz macmini to run it. A bit finicky to set up in Parallels but once Parallels sees the dongle it seems to work pretty well.
  15. Trying an experiment where I try to get modeler to run in xp in parallels to see if it can work okay. Xp says I need the hardware driver? I take it I have to install the dongle driver of some kind?
