Free Character Posing Software – Daz Studio

Daz Studio is a free rendering and animation software for posing 3D humans. It is similar in concept to Poser. The closest open-source equivalent will be the excellent Makehuman.

This software comes pre-included with the 3Delight renderer. Additionally, its capability can be further enhanced by purchasing or downloading add-ons such as new characters and props. It can also import and export Wavefront Obj 3D files. If you are into Industrial Design, I can imagine DAZ Studio being used for ergonomic study, illustrating product usage and user scenarios.

The free default download already come preloaded with a basic human figure. After you have signed up, go to 3D Software >> DAZ Studio to download it.

Note: For a better experience, your computer should have a reasonably decent graphics card that supports OpenGL. Also, the default interface hides quite a bit of its tools. To access more tools, go to View >>> Tabs.

Happy downloading 🙂

  1. Daz studio is by far the best free rendering program they make.. I use it for all of my renders which are posted on http://www.renderosity.com under artist shvrkidd. The controls are all easy to use, and the newest version is almost setup like poser 6. The rendering is pretty good for a beginer that only has the factory video software.. This is a great program to learn on.

  2. I have a few questions that need to be answered before I decide to download this rendering program. Can the characters I create with this be imported into other art programs and into Microsoft Office PowerPoint? If so, what other art programs are compatible with this one?
