DAZ Studio 4 is an easy to use and powerful 3D modeling or 3D character creation and animation tool that provides users an opportunity to learn 3d animation,imaging and create stunning animations. The great feature of DAZ Studio is it works on both Mac and windows 32-bit & 64-bit platforms.
DAZ Studio is aimed at beginners with no experience, normally other 3d software programs assume you already know all about X, Y, Z planes, modesl, mapping, textures, morphs, etc. But with DAZ Studio you will spend more time actually creating instead of trying to figure out what to do.
DAZ Studio lets you learn all the basics of 3D digital art and animation with minimal time. It is the perfect tool to design unique digital art and animations using virtual people, animals, props, vehicles, accessories, environments and more.
Daz Studio 4 is different from most 3D suites. Instead of creating 3D models using sculpting tools, you buy or get free models of people, animals, props and vehicles from the Daz website and modify them to suit according to your needs.
DAZ Studio 4 General Features:
- Quick Start Tutorials
- Included Content
- Scripting SDK
- Plugin SDK
Key DAZ Studio 4 features include:
- TriAx Weight-Map System:
Artists now have unparalleled flexibility with our patent-pending weight-map per-axis joint system.
Artists can now take the base Genesis mesh and push or pull it into virtually anything imaginable. Both proportions and mass of the figure can be altered in a variety of ways. DAZ Studio 4 automatically adjusts the Genesis base skeletal rig to fit within the new shape.
- Auto-Fit Plug-in:
This tool, available separately, allows customers to up-convert clothes and hairstyles from DAZ 3D’s prior generation of figures for use with the new Genesis series so that their past investments are protected.
- Smart Content:
This new content tells DAZ Studio 4 what type of asset it is, and what other assets are compatible with it. DAZ Studio 4, in turn, can then filter out anything that’s not compatible with what the artist is working on.
- Content Management Service (CMS):
This allows customers to easily find their content by keyword, category and/ or compatibility by using a standard meta-data structure.
- OS Features :
Compatible with Windows (32 bit & 64 bit) and intel base Mac systems (32 bit & 64 bit)
