From what I read to edit aniblocks one can use keyMate, graphMate and aniMate 2. But they aren't in the store. AniMate 2 is listed as plugin inside of daz studio with the option to enter a serial number but the store link doesn't work. How can one buy AniMate 2
Hmm, according to the site and product library, I own AniMate2 (apparently bought it back in 2008 - Order #3970197 if that helps) but I don't have a serial number for it in \"My Serial Numbers\" Whats currently in my DAZStudio is AniMate Lite.
Hey there, I've experienced a similar situation with my Daz Studio Pro. I recently purchased the animated ocean product and installed it. Upon trying it out I discovered to my surprise I only now have aniMate Lite with my DZ 4.10. Now this baffled me because I knew I had aniMate 2 with my previous version of DZ 4.8 which I still have on my old pc. So I fired her up and checked to be sure I wasn't losin' it and sure enough it still has the working version of aniMate 2 on it. It seems that since loading v. 4.8 and later upgrading to v 4.10 along the way my aniMate 2 was down graded to aniMate Lite and is now requesting a serial number I don't have and can't locate anywhere.
You have no need to install Animate 2 at all.Which version of DAZ Studio are you uisng Animate 2 has been part of the DS main install for some time now, all that you need to do, is to go to Help > About Installed Plugins, and enter the serial number for Animate 2 there. The version that comes with DS4.6 is Animate 2 Lite, but it converts to the full version on entering a valid serial number.
in the Dazshop it states that animate 2 is included with studio4 , and to check your available serials in your account to activate it.I seem to be lacking that serial number, everyother one under the sun, but animate2 serial
No, DS4 only includes a 30-day trial of Animate2, after which it reverts to AnimateLite. Animate2 is a paid item. You don't need to install it, as the code is already in DS4, but you need the serial number after 30 days.
DAZ Studio 4 Install & Activation Instructions: The aniMate2 plug-in is included with the DAZ Studio 4 installer and is installed automatically, but is not activated until you enter a valid serial number for it.To activate aniMate2 in DAZ Studio 4, go to the \"Help\" menu and select \"About Installed Plugins\". Next, find the entry for aniMate2 and click on the \"Register\" button and then type or paste in your serial code into the Serial Number field. Finally, click on the \"Accept\" button to finish registration. The aniMate2 serial code will be listed in your \"Available Serial Codes\" section of your www.daz3d.com account after you order this product.
If you have the serial number, it makes sense to enter it as soon as you install DS4, so that it will not time out after 30 days. It has always been a paid for plugin, and the 30 day trial of it has been around for some time.You still have Animate Lite, although it does not have the full functionality of Animate 2.
It looks as if it is already activated - if you had a serial number for AniMat2 in DS3 that is all you need, as far as I know, I don't think you need to buy again for DS4 (though you would have had to enter the serial number).
What's happened to Animate Lite on my laptop I'm not a newbie to DAZ, been here a few years and spent hundreds on products. All of a sudden I;ve lost animate Lite. I uninstalled DAZ (a few times) and re-installed it. I was using DAZ 4.6 Pro, so I even installed DAZ 4.6 Beta, but still nothing. I tried re-installing Animate 2 but when I looked at my serial numbers it looks like they've had a spring clean, no Animate 2.. Without it DAZ Studio is useless to me now.
No sure if this is the right place for this but I recently installed daz studio 4.7. I had 4.6 and animate 2 worked fine in there. Now after I put in serial number for animate 2 that they asked for after installing 4.7. It now says register but won't work at all. Whats up with that. The plug in is activated(green) and I restarted daz and my computer numerous times. What gives. I am good at figuring these things out on my own most times but I don't want to waist all day on this. Is there a update I am missing that is coming out or something. To repeat my Animate 2 worked fine in Daz studio 4.6 I should of waited to upgrade I guess. I wanted to test the new render engine or 4.7 and I am impressed it is fast. All my other plugins appear to work. I would try the serial again but it won't let me, its already registered. One more thing are we supposed to register Daz studio 4.7 I received no serial for that just the download. Damn I should of waited now I can't do my stuff. Please help if you can. I have Windows 8.1 64 bit. Thanks in advance! :roll:
If you put the DS serial number in for AniMate 2 then that is the problem - AniMate 2 is not part of DAZ Studio (it works in Lite mode after the first 30 days, which is why the actual plug-in is included, but requires its own serial for ful functionality). If that si what you have done I think you need to open a support ticket.
Opps I forgot to say in well defined terms that I used the serial for animate 2 and it worked in making it registered. It just doesn't work in animating the figure or even dragging aniblocks in the player. . I wondered if I needed the serial for Daz 4.7 that was not received. I guess a ticket is the way to go.
Yes I can see and activate the tab to open the box. I can scroll through the aniblocks but I can't drag them to the part that can activate the figure. Also when I place my cursor above the aniblock the figure will not animate(move). Now to be honest I had to restore windows because of screen loading error created from Norton 360. At least that's what I read it could be from and that was the last thing downloaded. Against my will might I add it was bundled with a YouTube down loader update. So I had to install all my programs all over again what a pain. I hope this isn't the source of the problem. I am good but I don't know where to begin to address that problem. Or do I dare say I have to refresh windows again to maybe make this problem go away for good. My worry is that the CMS or Daz studio manager will just carry this problem over some how.:red:
I fixed it! Thank you Richard Hasltine! I ran the Norton that was refreshed when I did system restore and it found a odd adware program Yontoon C After I cleared that off as well as tracking cookies. The animate 2 worked fine. Wow! Thanks again! I still not sure how that affected the Daz studio animate plugin though. Others should try this step if you have plugin problems.:-) I am all smile now!
That can happen if you enter the DS serial number in the box, though that doesn't seem to be the only way to get it. I think you need to open a Technical Support ticket - click Contact Us at the foot of this page.
I've paid for both aniMATE and (when it came out) aniMate 2 - however... inside studio while I can get the animate Lite pane to populate aniblocks, all i can find for aniMate 2 is a pane called aniMate 2 constraints. And when that pane is loaded, all it has is the text \"not available in aniMATE Lite\"
thanks for the welcome.I followed the procedurenow on \"My Downloadable Products\"which file should I download in the long list I have imac 64-bitIn \"My Serial Numbers\" there is still no serial numberThanks for your patiencehelp me please
new problem.I installed daz studio before creating an account.Now the serial numbers that I have appeared not to be more 'well.The program starts but when I enter the serial number, I close the window. The program works but I do not know what is enter the serial number.Without the serial number of the program is incompleteSorry for my english but i'm italianThanks
If the serial number has been entered correctly, the name of the program will change from 'DAZ Studio Standard' to 'DAZ Studio Pro', then you will have access to all the options.To get a serial number, 'buy' the version of DAZ Studio from the Store page, and go through the checkout. That will put a serial number for DS4P in your Available Serial Numbers.You still have not said what version of DAZ Studio you are using Go to Help > About DAZ Studio, and post what the version number is at the top of the splash screen please.
I go to HELP/DAZ STUDIO REGISTER and paste the serial number.The orange color icon it's okthis is done I click on ok.I do not know if the version of my daz studio is complete.Where can I see that it is complete
Entering the serial what changesThe program is initiated even without the serial number.I have not noticed any changes by entering the serial number.Sorry if I seem intrusive,but I would like the program to have all the options to completethanks for your attention
When you first run DAZ Studio, it is the 'Standard' version, and some of the options don;t work.When you enter the Pro serial number ALL of the options then work.If you are referring to Animate 2, this is a 'paid for' plugin, and it always has been. It gives you a 30 day trial of Animate 2, and then it reverts to Animate Lite, which is part of the free program.What is it that you think does not work
I'm using a DAZ 4.8 and animate2 was working ok. But now it is stop. i saw the the plugins options and the animate 2 is green like all others but it have a serial box and a check icon and a cart (buy icon) at side. I put my DAZ serial and the chek icon dont become green (i thinks that it should happens) then i re-start DAZ and nothing.. The animate istill in LITE.
You don't need to install anything. It is built in to Daz Studio. You just need to enter your serial number to make it work. The serial number will be in your online account. In Daz Studio, go to menu Help>About Installed Plugins to enter that serial number into the program. 153554b96e
