"LOVE IT"

September 03, 2006  |  By im_on_crack8

 |  Version: Bryce Presets 5

Pros

I love everything about the product and I am so grateful that Daz was good enough to offer us Bryce 5 for free. I lost mine in a pc crash and I was overjoyed to take up their generous offer. It's a great program. All you need is your imagination and you can create any beautiful scene you want. I can't say enough about it

"The learning curve isn't as steep as you'd think with a first glance.."

August 25, 2006  |  By noxika

 |  Version: Bryce Presets 5

Pros

Contrary to some reviews, this program actually doesn't have a steep learning curve.

The program DID freeze on me on initial start up, where it informed me I needed to install the Bryce Presets. After ending the process, I DL'ed and installed the presets and restarted B5 and it worked fine.

But to clear up a few other false comments; * Your taskbar will still remain visible when working in Bryce.

* You CAN maximize the screen resolution AND change the window/image preview size.

* There ARE help files

* There IS a quit button, in fact as long as you've found the menu bar (it is hidden at the very top of your screen which you can access by pointing your mouse up there and it'll spring into view) you'll find most everything you need. And what you didn't find in the top menu, you'll no doubt find on the different little option icons to the right of the screen; everything from maximizing the layout to choosing the background colour/texture.

If you take a few minutes to take a look around you'll find the UI is quite user-friendly, easy to understand and quite clever.

Basically folks it's free.. but it won't be for long. A lot of people had to pay for this program and after this offer ends, a lot more people will find themselves paying for it (Only people with v5+ will be eligible to upgrade to v6. So should you not download it and decide at a later date you want Bryce v6, you'll have to purchase 5 first). And it really is a good little program. You won't be creating stunning artworks in five minutes but it won't take you five months either. It is a solid little program capable of making some really beautiful images and animations with a bit of practice and effort.

If you're interested you might as well try it.. you really don't have anything to lose price-wise.

Cons

The only thing I wish Bryce had was scroll-mouse support to zoom in/out. But this isn't a big issue as the supplied buttons for this task are more than adequate.

"Great program? As viewed from which planet?"

August 25, 2006  |  By Gemini666

 |  Version: Bryce Presets 5

Pros

Struggling to find one (because it won't, can't, doesn't do anything for me, I'm afraid). One Star - sadly, still rather generous.

Cons

I have also struggled with DAZ|Studio for nearly 2 years. Some reviewers have fallen into the same trap that DAZ does - they (and the manual) are so good at telling me WHAT I can do, and how EASY it is, but nowhere is it actually written (unless you have time to wade thru all the forums, of course), just HOW?

I have actually spent more time having a look round Bryce, than I spent on these comments, but I cannot find out how to alter resolution, or anything else! If you know, then please tell us, rather than try to discredit other reviews, because I totally agree with them.

I don't want a 1000-page manual, either, but Bryce is certainly NOT for beginners. A small help file would not go amiss - maybe there is one, but the user interface is just so 'user-UNfriendly', that I cannot find it.

I would press the power button, but Bryce, when open, freezes everything else out, so all my visible task-bar features are unobtainable. Luckily, I have discovered the usefulness of 'Control+Alt+Delete' to open the Task Manager, and close the program down, so I can regain access to everything else. Unless the hidden help file says otherwise, this is the only way I have found to shut down Bryce (No little X-button, here!).

I am not here to learn new programs - programs are just tools to enable me to create data/artwork/anything. To me, the mark of a good program is that I can at least make a start on some piece of work or other, without even a first glance at the instructions. There is nothing resembling the a normal menu or functions of a regular half-decent program in Bryce, so if you are a beginner, you are on your own, mate!

Having now shut down Bryce with Task Manager, and regained my start button, I can navigate to Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs, which now looks a more attractive option than ever before.

Bryce? Forget it, unless you are an expert, of course. As for DAZ, I have invested/agonised/wasted so many hours, that I hesitate to get rid of that (each new day!)

"Great product. Has been for YEARS!"

August 24, 2006  |  By SinisterSam

 |  Version: Bryce Presets 5

Pros

How much better can free be? Gives you the ability to create nice looking landscapes/scenery, with a small learning curve. Ignore what jer2eydevil88 said about being locked at 800x600. If he had taken as much time to learn a bit about the program as he did here writing a bad rap review on C-Net, he mighta got somewhere. It will go to 4000x3200. How much higher could you possibly want!! I have used this program for several years, and it is a great program, especially for the beginners wanting to experiment with 3D, without reading a 1000 page "how-to" book. It will also import many formats from different programs, which is a bonus, expanding Bryces abilities.

Cons

None: for the beginner.

Simplistic, and you get great results.

Not alot of advanced features really holds this program back from the experienced 3D enthusiast. If you've reached your limits with Bryce, you might want to start thinking about 3D Studio Max, Maya, or other software. If you can't figure out how to create a new document, or go to document setup to bump up the resolution to suit your needs, then go ahead and press the power button on your computer, and slowly back away. Go to the nearest Goodwill or other charity store, and donate your hardware to somebody that might possibly use it and learn something from it.

 |  Version: Bryce Presets 5

Pros

Its free.

Cons

Bryce has an almost unusable interface and this version has its resolution is frozen at 800x600. I don't care if its free its not worth using even at that price.
