DAZ Studio 4 Pro is a 3D figure posing and modelling software, which normally costs $429.95, but available for free for limited time period for Mac & Windows OS.
The main highlight of DAZ Studio 4 pro is the introduction of the Genesis figure, initially the Genesis figure is an androgynous mesh, but in the Posing/Shaping tab there’s presets for figures of both sexes, adult and child. Simply adjust the sliders to create male and female models.
DAZ Studio 4 Genesis Figure Platform won the 3D World CG Technology Award, the Genesis Figure was voted Software Innovation of the Year for breaking new ground and providing a clear benefit for artists in the creation or implementation of CG assets.
Also DAZ 3D has finally moved away from the canonical Poser figure set-up, and has added new and additional rigging into the figure, using its TriAx Weight-map System, which weight-maps per axis joint. Facilitating content creation for the new figure, the stand-out feature in Daz Studio Pro is without a doubt the incorporated Content Creator Toolkit.
DAZ Studio 4 Professional is a brand new version of DAZ Studio. It includes everything in DAZ Studio 4 Advanced plus the Content Creator Toolkit and a host of other plug-ins and add-ons that will empower any 3D artist to bring their work to 3D software applications, games, real-time apps, animations, high resolution art, and more.
