Additional Comments

VERY IMPORTANT Disabled "texture spooling" in "Preferences -> Imaging, Scratch Disk" to be able to use the application. Carrara infrequently has lengthy (>5 sec but less than a minute) hangs

HowTo / Notes

Things to make Carrara work

Install application
Install the Carrara 64-bit application as you usually would under Windows. I used the »Wine FileManager« and simply started the

  • Carrara_8.1.0.xxx_Win64.exe

which came in the provided download you got from DAZ 3D. Follow the instructions of the setup as you would under Windows and let it finish.

First start
It is very important to make a change in the »Preferences« of Carrara at first startup. Otherwise the application would crash when rendering or switching to other Carrara-rooms. So go to

  • File > Preferences > Imaging, Scratch Disk

and disable

  • Spool Texture on Disk
Make Carrara run

Click »OK« and close Carrara.

Start Carrara again
Everything works fine now. Happy rendering! :)
