Hivewire Wild Cats

Are these all the wild Hivewire Cat Files in the store. I don't want to miss any necessary files. I have not purchased Poser 12 yet, but I am hearing, there are some changes in the Superfly rendering? Is this true? How will it effect superfly textures? Even though I have not been around very often this past few years, as life has gotten busy, I really sorry to see Hivewire closing its store. While I do certainly understand it. Glad to hear the forum will remain open. I like the deer & bucks as well & will be thinking hard on those fore the close date.

Value stacks for these cats & the bucks would of made it easier to have them all in one place, so I don't miss any. :)

You need the HiveWire Big Cat to use the rest (and the HiveWire Cub if the others have cub settings). I'm not sure about the Superfly settings but I think its mostly to do with rendering with GPU updates? (and maybe some changes/updates to cycles?), sorry I'm a Daz user lol.

For the deer, you will need the HW Horse and Mule Deer add-on to use the rest and most likely the Antler pack add-on for most (Except the Caribou it just needs the HW Horse). But they all should say what they need

Thank you so much Rae! :)

Does the HiveWire big dog textures and poses work with the HiveWire puppy? Thanks...

Generally Yes, some tweaking may need to be done to the poses because of size tho.

(Also the HW House Cat, and Big Cat textures will work with the Big Dog too and visa versa as they use the same mesh)

"I have not purchased Poser 12 yet, but I am hearing, there are some changes in the Superfly rendering? Is this true? How will it effect superfly textures?"

For the latest version of Poser 12 Early Access, still a bit of a work-in-progress until the Final version appears:

"ShaderNode equivalency behaviour in Poser 12 is now consistent with Poser 11."

"Partial fix for seams showing in SSS, when traditional skinning [of figures] is used."

"Fixed exporting SuperFly renders to ‘Aux’ layers as .PSD and .PNG – the “Original” layer is no longer dark."

SuperFly users can now "select multiple GPUs for hardware render" and "local and remote Queue Rendering" is enabled.

SuperFly now supports Ambient Occlusion.

SuperFly now "almost twice as fast on a CPU render" if you have the savvy to tweak settings right. GPU rendering now supported for RTX 30 series cards.

Lots of new Nodes stuff in the new Cycles version for SuperFly in Poser 12.
