Well after my long lengthy response to you on the 3D group recently. I came to look at your gallery, I noticed a lot of your work doesn't look like it's Poser based as you mentioned. That's another thing, having a sharp eye for different models and where they originally came from. I can easily tell when someone has used a certain engine to render their work as well as the original models. So, I can admit your skills are very good. You apply yourself quite well. And you do own one of Masons environments, the futuristic environment. That's another thing I specialize in sometimes "Trading products." But I don't do it on an open market like file sharing publicly. It's like I send someone a file on something pricey, they still keep the original so it's not like they will lose it by trading since it's similar to how you copy a folder, and it turns into a short cut. Etc.

However I spend a huge amount of dough supporting the Daz community regardless. I'm not exactly "moralistic" about everything I do. I am a "Do whatever it takes" type of guy. Hell I applied to work security at a bar a few times knowing my life would be easily in danger dealing with drunken men ten times my own size I can't physically toss out of the place for harassing a girl or something. But to survive as an artist, and to survive in society. I live a Do whatever it takes lifestyle. So when I have the money, I may by directly from a Vendor if I feel he or she could use it. But if I think something is way too expensive and overpriced. I'll either buy from the person that already has the item or I'll trade em something equally good for it.
I'd trade just about anything with you for that Futuristic Environment but you seem like a high moral standard kind of guy after I read your post in that group.
At one point I had a chance to get the whole damn set for free from the guy that made it. But I missed out because I didn't have the software for it at the time.
I spoke to him among others many times before. Because I stay connected with every community I join. I'm sorry if I sounded a little ranty, I get that way. I studied speech, and communication. And sometimes things like that happens. At any rate. I respect your work, and if you want sometime. We can join forces, do some kind of project. Love and respect man. I appreciate all talents no matter how the shit was done. You know?

A portion of my work is rendered with LightWave and LuxRender, but the majority is 3Delight (DS). I think it is a mistake to think you can always tell which render engine has been used for a particular image. I think the way beginners, or those that haven't studied their software in-depth, will often produce images with tell-tale signatures, as evidenced by the so called Poser/DAZ/Bryce look. Hell, I've seen people render with Vue but their work turns out looking like some Bryce novice. Did you know that the same render engine DS uses has been used in a number of high budget VFX heavy movies? Thanks for the compliment.

I'm just getting started. Lots of tutorials and stuff, so I'm not looking to do much serious stuff just yet, but hopefully one day I'll get to a level where I start making and selling content or other 3D related services.

On the note of content swaps, in some parts of the world that is legal, as long as the original copies are deleted (only one per purchase stays in existence). In the EU apparently it is quite legal to sell your entire runtime, as long as you don't keep a backup. To me that makes sense and should be adopted worldwide. On issues such as sharing files with a close friend, that is a tough call and I have mixed feelings about it, especially in a relatively small community like the DS/Poser one, where every second person could be called a close friend of someone else’s. Six degrees of separation and no one has to buy the next Stonemason hit.

In either case I'm not parting with any of my content, especially if I'm still using it, such as the set you mention.

Yeah well like I said, I don't always follow the rules, I make my own. Survival of the fittest is the only way to thrive. For the most part you cant go to jail just because you trade a product with somebody. And the only way anyone would know if you did this is if you told them you did. I already support Stone, so he's not losing anything by you giving up one environment when I paid for many other products.
I feel that once I buy anything especially if it cost more than a pair of shoes from Footlocker, I can use it any way I see fit because once they have my money, they can do whatever they want with that money. I'm not placing restrictions on how they spend it, or how their using it. Their using the money and everyone else money to develop more and more products for people to use, after all selling products is how they live. Overpricing it, well that's being greedy especially when you can get by so long as your work is good enough. People who do commissions usually charge fair fees, when people come to me for commissions I was probably the cheapest, even when I'm good enough I still don't plan on jacking up my prices. That is why I ended commissions I felt my work wasn't good enough to take people's money. I didnt' want people asking me to do a certain theme, and then I look at the work..The quality is poor I didn't feel right about that. I actually refunded a guy because of that very same reason.

The way I see it, Poser and the Daz community is not small. Not sure where you got that idea from. Daz and poser is used everywhere, the community is VAST it's never dying and more and more people are getting into it. Seriously everyone uses this stuff these days, it's been around for ages ever since the 1990s I believe. Likewise, I took the risk of asking because I know a guy who did swap a few items with me, very expensive as hell ones at that. I don't worry about all that "I'll get into trouble" stuff. For one thing like I said, I still support them. it's not like I want their whole catalog for free. I remember paying close to $200 on one Vendor alone. And one vendor products were removed for being "inappropriate" so I Went to her, and guess how much I offered to pay her for those products versus the original price when they were listed on the site that removed them? More than anything Stone has that's for sure. And This was just for an entire clothing set she had. And I'll still pay her the price because to me, its worth it. Rare items are always worth an extra cost when their gone from a market. Anyway you turned me down, I understand you rather not break the rules. I'm a Neutralist, I obey rules when I feel their necessary but when I have to, I'll bend them. At any rate your probably tired of all these long ass post. So I'll either leave you be, or try to cut down on em if you continue talking to me. I have no life at the moment, all this free time so I can afford to be ranty until that manager calls me back, lets me know I got the job. After that, tsk I wont have a reason to trade, but I'm still not paying $30 or more for one product. Not anymore unless that sh*t becomes rare and if the dealer tries to up the price because it's rare, well I'll negotiate and if that fails I'll accept their price simply because of my motto. Do whatever it takes to get what is needed if the limitations cannot be broken.
