3D Daz Studio Free Software Review.
Daz Studio offers a virtual environment and toolset for the posing and animation of 3D character models and props. Unlike traditional 3D polygon modeling software, the 3D content is not actually created in Daz Studio. Rather, Free 3D model are imported from other software packages, such as 3D Studio Max or Maya, or purchased from various 3D character model retailers, such as Renderosity.
The Daz business model, of selling content rather than software, means that Daz Studio is downloadable for free. However, the 3D materials available with the free download are limited, and unless the user plans to create their own models with a separate modeling package, the only alternative is to scour the internet for free Daz-capable character models or purchase licensed content.
Daz Studio: Modeling Alternative to Poser.
The comparison to SmithMicro’s Poser are inevitable. Unlike Daz Studio, Poser has a hefty price tag, retailing at around $250, though older versions are available at reduced pricing. And like Daz Studio, Poser requires an additional budget to purchase content, or the ability to make complex 3D character models.
The general toolsets and uses of Daz Studio and Poser are also comparable. Both feature built-in render engines. Unsurprisingly, the Daz Studio 3Delight renderer is inferior to Poser’s Firefly renderer, as it supports neither ambient occlusion or image based lighting. However, third party renderers can be used in Daz Studio, or completed scenes can be exported to other modeling packages to take advantage of more advanced renderers.
Daz Studio Keyframe Animation Both.
Daz and Poser include tools with which to animate� Free 3D model. Daz Studio uses a limited keyframe method of animation, using their trademarked Puppeteer system. By selecting keyframes within the Puppeteer interface, movement transitions, morphs and blends are easily achieved, but are themselves limited by the Puppeteer interface. in contrast, Poser offers an exhaustive (and exhausting) keyframe solution to animation. The learning curve of the Daz Studio Puppeteer is quicker and easier, but the Poser system allows for more freedom.
Daz Studio Review Conclusion
Poser is undoubtedly superior to Daz Studio except in the all-important area of cost. Despite the criticisms of this review, it should be remembered that Daz Studio is delivered free of charge. For the hobbyist 3D animator who cannot afford the cost of Poser, Daz Studio offers a well-supported, stable software solution to creating CG stills or simple animated scenes. Daz also serves as an introduction to techniques that can later be applied to Poser when the user’s skills have developed to a level that can justify the purchase price of Poser.
