Well, I finally got everything back in order on my Daz Studio runtime.  Had a moment of clarity regarding the data folder, and how nutty it would have been to load every file, check what it needed, and copy that over.  The fact is, everything in data/auto_adapted is there because of a file you created.  So assuming you're copying most of your creations over, it doesn't make sense not to just copy that entire folder wholesale.  You might need a few things in the data folder that aren't in auto_adapted, but you will need everything in auto_adapted.  Fortunately I figured that out before I got too far along.  Saved me a lot of trouble.

Another caveat for anybody else doing this.  You might find that when you reinstall stuff, if you're not doing it from the same installer as originally, some of the image file locations may have changed.  This will lead to scenes and scene subsets using those files to gripe at you when they can't find the image where it used to be.  (It's fine if it's in the same relative path from the Runtime; but if it's changed, it'll raise a flag.)  It's easy enough to sort out, but it's worth bearing in mind.  I had this happen with the Millennium Beard and with George Haze's ClothFX from his Ultimate Shader Pack -- which, since I use that rather heavily in my superhero images meant I had to sort out a fair number of characters.

But it's all sorted out now.  I've still got a bunch of stuff I want to tinker with mechanically to make things even more convenient for me, but it's nothing that can't be done in between art projects.  Which is good, because it's time to get back to creating art.  I need to create my Halloween banner for my blog within the week, so that'll be first.  Not sure exactly what day it'll hit here (you'll be seeing the un-bannerized version), but as I want it up by October 1st, it probably won't be any later than that...

I'm a web developer living in Springfield, OR; in my spare time, I tinker around with 3D and vector graphics, and watch more movies than is probably healthy.
