Dances with Bees
Sorry about that. Here's the link
Thankyou for the suggestions, unfortunately none of them have worked. I have it working right on my Windows laptop though so might be able to come up with something. My imac is the computer that is having the problem even with removing any and all songbird remix files and reinstalling once again. My imac has a nvidia card with 4 gig dedicated memory and 32 gig ram so not having a system resource problem. I will keep trying though.That's weird-- it's like the transparency maps aren't there. I loaded and rendered a couple in all 4 renderers and found no issues. I have had problems, every once in a while, with weird rendering quirks. For instance, my wacom pen is now locking up Painter (grrrrrr!)... usually a reboot fixes it.
I can think of a couple possible things that might be wrong...
1) Make sure you are using the latest version... You said that to downloaded it a couple days ago, so I'm assuming you have the latest one. The next question would be, are you using the latest one. All new and updated Songbird ReMix products are now found in "Animals/Songbird ReMix... etc" in Poser and DS versions. The old version resided in the "Songbird ReMix" folders (not under "Animals"). I now put everything new under the "Animals" folder to avoid confusion with the older Songbird ReMix products which haven't yet been updated.
2) Make sure the transparency maps are there... they'll be in runtime/textures/songbirds/owls. You'll be looking for owl_trans1.jpg through owl_trans5.jpg. Next check the material room/tab and make sure the Trans1 through Trans5 materials have those maps attached to them. If the maps are attached but not rendering there's something off in DS/Poser render settings or a system resources issue (cpu/memory). One solution might be to try rendering it with SubD turned off (or set to "0")
Sorry, I can't really think of any other solutions...
Just out of curiosity, have the Birds of Legend been updated? I bought that pkg over at Daz a long time ago and didn't know how to find out about updates for that one. It is the only one I purchased while you were selling through Daz.
