Yup, I know Daz runs it now.. was kind of the reason I went away from it.. never liked the DAZ corporate style. Don't really like poser either... makes weird lifeless mannequin people, and people have used them to death.. some with better results than most, but usually its all "JAPP" Just Another Poser Pic.
I remember Bryce 2 came in a paint can.. that was kind of awesome. I love the interface.. its brilliant... Imagine Mandelbulb 3d with Bryces interface. I have thought many times about offering Jesse to make an interface for it, but after all I have read on the forums, my overall impression is that he isnt really interested in developing it like that, he is more into the nuts and bolts of the mathematics of it all and not really into adding features that would make it into a polished commercial type app. Which is understandable. He does it for free and thats the type of coder he is, so respect for that.. but it WOULD be cool to see a sweet interface. : )
