This is less about ray-tracing / 3D art and more about business politics. I previously mentioned that I have become disillusioned with how DAZ treats Carrara versus their precious baby DAZ-Studio.
As of this posting, you can find the following chart on the DAZ-3D home page:
It is bad enough that Carrara is left off of the comparisons…
However; I got really annoyed at the lie concerning LightWave. No texturing in LightWave? Horseshit! LightWave actually has two texturing engines (layers-based and nodes-based).
The chart also implies that DAZ-Studio’s rigging, morphing and rendering is on par with the likes of 3DS Max or Maya. What a joke!
I posted about this on the DAZ Forums but the moderators didn’t like me calling out this falsehood. The post was deleted.
