Harquimm Posted July 29, 2011 Report Share Posted July 29, 2011 Essentially this is just a quick plug for the program I have been using to create the 3d artwork on my deviant art page, DAZ studio. Now normally I dont like to post threads premoting any programs @ the risk of people just thinking that it is a scam or spam but but i thought that some of you may be interested. Daz Studio is made by DAZ Productions, the same people that make Bryce and Carrera. Now for a long time Daz studio has been available for free from the Daz website however this is soon about to change. Daz Studio 4 will stop being for free at the end of this month so if you want to get yourself a copy for free legally I suggest you visit http://www.daz3d.com/i/3d-models/-/daz-studio-4?item=12194. After that, the price goes up to US$50. It's a special introductory offer for the new software package. Alternativly here is a direct link to the CNet download for DS4: http://download.cnet.com/DAZ-Studio/3000-6677_4-10717523.html However I am unsure as to how long this one will be available for after the end of the month. If you are wanting to use Daz Studio 3, you can download it from here: http://www.daz3d.com/i/shop/itemdetails/?item=11999 or http://www.daz3d.com/i/support/downloads?product=studio System Reuirements for DS3 can be found here: http://www.daz3d.com/i/software/daz_studio3/requirements?_m=d The difference? DS3 is what I've been using to create the images that you've seen so far. It's stable and has less bugs than the latest (DS4) version. DS3 has been out for quite some time, and there are thousands of terrabites of free (legal) downloads for it in pretty much any genre you can think of. DS4 is a new version, and still has bugs that need to be fixed. It comes with a special figure (called Genisis) that at the moment can only be used in Daz. There are a whole 2 free items so far for the Genisis figure. You really do need to purchase products (from the Daz3D website) to get the full use of Genisis. You are able to use any Daz content in DS4 though. So if you decide to use DS4 reccomend that you go create an account on the Daz3D website and 'purchase' DS4 before the price goes up. Creating an account and adding free items into you cart and checking out does not require any credit card/banking/pay pal details - but it does allow you to come back at any time and reset the items in your purchase history so you can download them when you are ready. It is also how you can get the serial numbers for the programs to work. If you need help or guidance doing this, just ask, there are plently of friendly folk on the forums at Daz who'd be willing to help out. (You can PM shaaelia on the forums if you like, she'll point you in the right direction if she doesn't know the answer) If you are wanting free items to start off creating your scenes, there are plenty of sites out there. If you are after something in particular, just ask. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
