If you have downloaded Bryce 7 Pro, Hexagon 2.5 and DAZ Studio 4 Pro, maybe because you have read the previous post, you have now the installation files on your computer.
In this post we will do an analysis of these files, to explain, to those who are approaching for the first time or those who are unfamiliar with these programs, what’s the use of each installer.
Bryce 7 Pro installation files
For this program you’ll find four installers:
Bryce_184.108.40.206_Win32.exe is the installation file of the program. The numbers after 7 indicate the current version of the program.
BryceContent_220.127.116.11_Win.exe is the installer of the contents provided with Bryce. You’ll find tutorials, examples of scenes made with the program, 3D models and lights.
BryceLightning_18.104.22.168_Win.exe is an application that must be installed on each computer on a network and gives you the ability to use multiple computers to render your image or animation.
BryceProContent_22.214.171.124_Win.exe are materials provided with the Pro version of Bryce.
Hexagon 2.5 installation files
For this program you’ll find one installer:
Hexagon_126.96.36.199_Win32.exe, since it’s the only file here, I believe there is no need of explanation 😉 .
DAZ Studio 4 Pro installation files
For DAZ Studio 4 Pro you’ll find eight installers and three PDF guides:
Darkside_1.2_ds.exe installs the new style Darkside for DAZ Studio 4. ➡ To change the style, in DS, go to the menu Window > Style > Select Style…. This will open a tab where you can set anything you like.
DAZStudio_188.8.131.52_Win32.exe is the installation file of the 32-bit version of DS4.
DAZStudio_184.108.40.206_Win64.exe this, instead, is the installer of the 64-bit version. If you own a computer with a processor that supports 64-bit install this version.
DS4_3DBridge_220.127.116.11_Win32.exe and DS4_3DBridge_18.104.22.168_Win64.exe are the installers of the 32-bit and 64-bit version of 3D Bridge for Adobe® Photoshop®. In practice, if you own Adobe Photoshop CS4 or an higher version install the version for your operating system, otherwise leave them be.
DS4_GoZ_22.214.171.124_Win32.exe and DS4_GoZ_126.96.36.199_Win64.exe. If you own ZBrush® install the version for your operating system, otherwise leave them be.
Content_Creator_Toolkit_Installation_Guide.pdf,FBX_Exporter_DS4_Installation_Guide.pdf and Texture_Atlas_DS4_Installation_Guide.pdf. They are simple guides that explain how to activate the plug-ins Content Creator Toolkit, FBX Plug-in for DAZ Studio and Texture Atlas, already included in the installer for DAZ Studio 4.
