Installation Notes

  1. Ensure that Country Lane has been correctly installed before attempting to install Country Lane - Hedgerow.
  2. The installer will ask for a location to install Country Lane - Hedgerow into. On Windows systems the correct place to install into is the Carrara application directory - typically C:\Program Files\DAZ\Carrara. On Macintosh systems you can install into any folder but will need to follow the Manual Installation Instructions below.

Manual Installation Instructions

<div style="border: 1px solid black; background-color: #FFFFAA; padding: 10px; width: 60%; margin-bottom: 10px;">The following manual installation instructions are only needed if the installer is unable to automatically install the presets into the correct locations.</div>

Installing the Scenes Presets

This is an optional step for those wanting to have Country Lane - Hedgerow included as a preset in Carrara's Scene Wizard.

  1. Navigate to where “Country Lane - Hedgerow” was installed in your file system
  2. Locate the following folder inside the install folder:
    • Scenes:Country Lane<br />
  3. Copy the contents of the “Country Lane” folder into the existing “Country Lane” folder in Carrara's Scenes Presets folder (to find this folder see instructions below). This will add three new scene files and overwrite the existing “infos.txt” file.

Locating the Scenes:Country Lane Presets Folder - Windows

The Scenes:Country Lane Presets folder for Carrara on Windows systems is located within the Carrara application folder. It therefore is typically located at the following path:

  • C:\Program Files\DAZ\Carrara 6 Pro\Scenes\Country Lane

Locating the Scenes:Country Lane Presets Folder - Macintosh

The Scenes:Country Lane Presets folder for Carrara on Macintosh systems is located within the Carrara application package.

  1. Locate and navigate to your Carrara application file - usually located at:
    • Macintosh HD:Applications:Carrara 6 Pro
  2. Right-click on the Carrara application icon and select the menu item titled “Show Package Contents”. This should open a new Finder window containing a folder named “Content”
  3. Navigate through this folder to get to the Scenes folder located at:
