August is a notable month for us. It has our Wedding Anniversary and Andrews birthday, both on the same day.
This year, it's also seeing us moving another large chunk of our catalogue to Renderosity. We've got nineteen transferred items gone over, bringing our Renderosity store to 49 items now. The rest will be migrating over the remainder of the year. To celebrate all that we have happening this August, we've got a massive 60% off sale on everything we have at Renderosity so far.
This new batch of products includes all our TerraDome2 content and our Vikings theme. In addition to our lighting, props, clothing and character packs, there's a wide selection of things to delight your Runtimes. If you're looking for the darker side of Poser content, then look no further! Drop by our Renderosity store
for dark and macabre content for all your horror and fantasy renders.
On a wider note, some of you will have noticed we have been remarkably quiet for the last 12 minths or more. There are reasons for this, not least that we felt our artistic integrity was being eroded. As we have said repeatedly in the past, we don't do this solely for the money, we do it because we want to create art. We have to enjoy what we create, in order to create what we enjoy. Our enjoyment of what we create has always shown in our packs and the fact that we use them time and time again in our own art. Yes, we realise this may sound naive and to a certain extent utopian, but we have principles, and we will NOT sell them out for extra profit. The two people we have to be pleased with what we make is us. If no-one else likes/wants it, that's fine...we will use what we create, because that is why we create it.
Another decision we've made recently is to return our focus solely on Poser. We tried expanding our content in DazStudio, but we didn't like it. Poser is what we know, and we have each invested over 15 years in learning it, and it's what the majority of our users want us to do. That said, it seems that because of the way we make things, they generallly do actually work very well in DazStudio, with minimal/no adjustment. We're not planning on changing the way we make things, so for now, our stuff will still work in Studio. We will not be making any further Studio specific packs. For us, Poser is best suited to making the art we want, and at the end of the day, our art is the most important thing to us. We hope Studio users understand, and like we say, all our stuff works in Studio anyway, so it's not like we're shunning anyone, we're just concentrating on the software that we prefer and use.
New freestuff is also in the pipeline and will be available here and at Renderosity. We're also going to be making a small selection of really, really old packs available as freestuff. Watch this space!
Happy rendering 2017
