There's another issue, too. The announcement makes a big deal about this being dForce Hair support, but unless you are a Daz PA, you won't have the ability to apply the dForce Hair settings to your stranded hair. It's still a big step forward for DS, and I suspect most of us, moi, couldn't style hair decent enough to make a difference anyway!Thanks!!!! I think I will wait for the real release. I know macs are the Oliver Twists in the Daz world. Though I still can't even find the beta in my DIM so it's academic anyway
Users can still create the stranded hair, but will only have the dForce cloth options for simulating/draping the resulting hair. For fur on animals, that may well be enough.
As for finding the beta in DIM, did you remember to tick the Public box in the Download settings? (I keep it off be default, only enabling it when I know there's a beta to download.)
