I put together a new custom UI for Daz Studio Pro BETA - version 188.8.131.52.
That Beta version has a new pane called Install. namffuak shared the idea to actually place the Install pane next to the viewport in the middle area. -> That way the window with all the products is now quite large and it is more conveniant to browse and find products.
Activity 1 is the Install pane
Activity 2 is Scene setup
Activity 3 OctaneRender
then some other Activities for Iray, Animation, LAMH, Dynamic Clothing, Content Editing and Various.
-> If you do not own some of the plugins the corresponding panes will simply be left out while the rest of the UI remains the same. This means if you use the UI with older versions than Daz Studio Pro BETA - version 184.108.40.206. the Install pane will be missing. You can of course always add it manually later when you upgrade to a newer version. - - -
If anyone wants to start building their own Custom UI version based on this:
I attached a .zip with the folders user styles and user layouts and some more preview screenshots.
- placing the "Shader Mixer" pane next to the viewport pane caused the viewport pane not to snap properly to the UI borders and scale properly with the open tabs -> moved "Shader Mixer" and "Shader Builder" panes to the "Various" activity to prevent interference with standard workflows that depend on proper viewport scaling
