Daz Studio - @ Daz3d.com

What is it? What is it for? 

DAZ Studio is a 3D figure illustration/animation application. It is compatible with most files intended for use by Poser. It is available for free but registration is required. Version 1.0 was released in Fall 2005. Until version 1.7 it was officially known as DAZ|Studio. On February 1, 2012, DAZ 3D Inc. announced it would be giving away DAZ Studio Pro for free.[4] The latest stable version is 4.7.

Overview:

Unlike most 3D software, where 3D objects are usually created from scratch, DAZ Studio is designed to allow users to manipulate "ready to use" models and figures. It is aimed at users who are interested in posing human and non-human figures for illustrations and animation, but who do not wish to incur the expense—in terms of time and money—of higher-end 3D and CAD software. It was created as a direct alternative to Poser by DAZ Productions, the company that (as Zygote) created the built-in content for earlier versions of Poser.

In comparison to Poser, DAZ Studio uses a different core business model. Poser provides a large set of components, not all essential to the creation of imagery, in a commercially available program. DAZ Studio provides a core free of charge program with the required features for the creation of imagery, while relegating other features to add-on 'plug-ins', usually commercial, which the user may add.

DAZ Studio is capable of importing most Poser content, with the notable exceptions of dynamic clothing, dynamic hair, physics, Poser mixed rigging, Poser weight mapping rigging, and Poser weight mapped magnets. As a result of the different lighting models, lights may need to be tweaked or replaced, and while textures are generally usable between the two (other than Poser node-based materials), optimum results may need slightly different lighting values for each.

DAZ Studio 4.7 was released on November 2014. This software also is in the Professional Edition only. This version had all of the same options of the previous versions, but small changes were implemented. The Scene builder was redesigned for windowed options instead of one window.

More in-depth information on the abilities of the software, and the users guides are available at the DAZ3D Document Website.
