Thanks for the links
It looks and feels a lot like Daz studios Smart content function. however unlike Daz's smart content "Smart gallery" cannot be used offline, with local content
Daz's smart content actually functions offline, either log out of your daz account or pull the plug on the internet connection and Daz runs with no complaints. Pull the plug with S.G installed in CC3 or Iclone and watch them whine "Busy server" . only then are offered an offline option. not the most user friendly or elegant way to work offline if you press the refresh button it tells you to check your connection and log in. As of yet I have been unable to find an option to select offline working that actually allows offline working. The advise that " by logging out of your account account in hub. will enable offline working is fatuous. The only way this works is to start CC3 first then log out of hub. However if you close CC3 and restart it S.G demands you to log back in upon starting CC3 to use S.G, You can turn off the plugin and CC3 starts fine but activating the plugin demands again to login so "NO ! in practical terms S.G. WONT WORK IN OFFLINE MODE"
This isnt about a comparision between Daz and Reallusion it's about the claim that S.G works offline when it clearly does not. and a lack of functionality that should be there and isnt.
There are significant times I either need or want to work offline for whatever reason and cant be alone in this
There is also the lack of data privacy as the way SG works reallusion is notified by the sync to thier servers every time either CC3 or Iclone is started. this can be used to profile it's customers didnt read that in the EULA
Reallusion does some great things Faceshot is amazing and the updates to include DH enhanced the look greatly but this refusal by reallusion to give users control to tailor functionality is frustrating HUBs persistance is a nuisance which could easily be fixed and S.G. lack of actual offline mode is a disapointing motif.
Oh well time to restore back to pre- SG, and live in hope..........
