"Carrara 7 Pro 7.1.1.37 does not work in OS 10.6.3"

May 05, 2010  |  By miss_nancy

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Tell us what you like about this product: it's free.

Cons

Carrara 7 Pro 7.1.1.37 does not work in OS 10.6.3. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
The software fails to initialise, and fails to write a complete preferences file.
It quits after a few seconds. No text interface.

Summary

Carrara 7 Pro 7.1.1.37 does not work in OS 10.6.3.
The software fails to initialise, and fails to write a complete preferences file.
It quits after a few seconds. No text interface.
None of the fixes suggested at the carrara support forums is applicable.
The previous review I wrote did not show up here, so I rewrote it.
I've been using ray dream and carrara since 1996, but since Carrara 7 Pro doesn't work in OS 10.6.3 without major work-roiunds, obviously I can't
purchase Carrara 7 Pro, and the vendors require one to purchase
Carrara 7 Pro in order to receive Carrara 8 Pro.

"Non-intuitive interface, unstable"

August 23, 2009  |  By llewellynr

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Good modeling capability,workable animation

Cons

Unstable, crashed several times. Unintuitive interface. Poor terrain editing capability. Lack of shaders in downloads makes this version very hard to evaluate. Animation is very basic.

Summary

Limited animation capability, terrain modeling is very basic. Stronger on static modeling of non-natural objects. This release is not stable and crashes, so frequent saves are required. A lot of money for an unstable software package.

"Anybody can Animate with Carrara Pro 7"

August 03, 2009  |  By Fretslayer

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

The most intuitive CG animation program ever created. Carrara feels more like a 'film set' & less like a CG animation tool. Free models supplied by Daz3D allow even a first time user the ability to jump in & create fantastic renders and animations.

Cons

It's not Lightwave.

Summary

If you're looking to start animating or rendering then this is the app for you. The character controls work in a much easier manner than Poser and the tons of free content make this program a must have. Whether you are a seasoned pro or an instant amateur Carrara is a valuable tool in your workflow. Before Carrara I was frustrated about character animation. After Carrara I now have several animations posted on YouTube, I've done CG/Live Action film effects with it, and I'm having way too much fun.

If you're thinking about doing CG animation then Carrara Pro 7 is the perfect place to get your feet wet. Unlike Max, Maya and Lightwave you'll be animating in a matter of minutes instead of hours. One of the best things about Carrara is that the interface works so well that anybody who has ever played with 'action figures', 'dolls', or 'Star Wars' toys/ships can and will be able to create great renders/animations in no time at all.

This program is REALLY worth your time to check out.
I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
Once you use it, you'll understand why.
:)

"Trial version 6.2 is an update!"

June 15, 2008  |  By kaleberg

 |  Version: Carrara 6.1

Pros

It doesn't seem to have done any real damage.

Cons

I was hoping to try out the trial version, but this 6.2 download is an updater. It runs for 5-10 minutes looking for an old Carrara, but doesn't find one, so it gives up. I'd like to try Carrara, but ...

Talk about preaching to the choir.
