    fz 9.2?

    Insert "crickets" here.........šŸ˜
  2. I sent this issue to FZ Support, and judging from the response they weren't even aware of it. I hope V9.2 (or whatever they call it) isn't as buggy and temperamental as the current offering.
  3. I'm having the same issue. I have to do lots of revisions to the same image. It's handy to be able to set it to render the same view at say 8" x 10" @200ppi That way I can replace my existing link in Adobe Illustrator in the exact same place. They way it is now I have to make an extra step to open it in Photoshop and resample it or else it comes in huge. Maybe that's not a big deal until you are doing 10 of them in rapid fire succession. I never had this problem with any version of FZ until V9

    I see lots of examples of people's, work but not too many actual "tutorials".

    Version 9.1

    I think V8.6.5 was FZ's "finest hour" to date.
  7. If I remember correctly $3,500 was for the full blown "studio" version. I had the base package and it was about $900. from what I remember. Did everything I needed and more. It's still my favorite sub-d program. But now C4D has apparently done away with actually "owning" the software. It's available now as a monthly or yearly subscription.
  8. I just DL the update and it still has the issue that if I resize the modeling window, my toolbar mushrooms off the page. This has been a problem since the V9 beta

    If you don't want the map on one face to move, while you are adjusting one on another, make sure you have the map type set to "flat"

    New update 9.0.6

    I stand by my assertion. This still feels like a beta version. I advised my company not to upgrade to V9 for a while and let the dust settle, but they didn't listen. Now I think they wish they had as many if us are still using V8.6.5

    New update 9.0.6

    "Thanks so much to all you guys who are effectively beta testers" ...and who effectively paid for the privilege.

    New update 9.0.6

    I don't see FZ as ever being more than a niche company. They just don't have the developmental or marketing dollars to compete with the big boys, and I don't think they have anything special a larger company might consider buying out. My employer dictates that I use it, and I am ok with that. It's a decent software and for the most part I can do my work. However, If I had my choice I would not be using it. I'm not being harsh it's just my honest opinion. Since I started using FZ with V7 it seems to follow the same pattern that it takes a while for them to get it sorted out. With that being said everyone stay safe and happy holidays.

    New update 9.0.6

    When they get to V9.5 let me know. That seems to be when things are sorted. Until then I will stay with 8.5.6

    V9 update

    I don't use V9 unless I get a model someone has created it in. It's just easier to leave it as it rather than back-save it. I do have the" select all" issue noted above, and if I resize the project window the modeling toolbar mushrooms off the page. The only is to fix it is restart the app.

    I still use it for my day to day. It's fast and I end up doing lots of revisions, so it works well for that.

    optimising PC performance

    I've used a variety of 3D packages over the years. The majority of what I do is concept work. and I primarily use sub-d for product modeling. For me, C4D is the best at this. It's fast, clean, and has a lot of options that FZ lacks. But with that being said, I do find work-arounds for most of FZ's shortcomings, and I can get some pretty decent results.

    Match view question

    I guess this explains why I never seem to be able to get this to work. All I ever get are cell phone pics of store interiors. I have had better luck just eyeballing it. What I am doing is pretty simple to what you all are though.

    Rounding Question

    I have had problems with rounding and crashing going all the way back to the original V7. Even something as simple as rounding a cube, or controlled rounding of a single edge. This has been across several new iMacs and flavors of the Mac OS. I will say that in my case it usually doesn't crash several times in a row. Usually only once. The one thing I have learned is always "save" before attempting any type of rounding.

    When I resize the modeling window the toolbar mushrooms in size and runs off the page. Restarting the app fixes it. Annoying as hell when you are busy.

    Polygon cages for smoothing

    Anywhere you don't have a continuous "loop" you are going to get triangles. Like on the arm of your chair.

    Polygon cages for smoothing

    Yes a quad mesh is preferable. I actually had this discussion with a FZ Mod at one point. One of their tuts shows an area divided into triangles. That's always a no-no in my book because triangles can't be further subdivided. You essentially paint yourself into a corner.
