As Bitcoin miners sell off their nearly-useless graphics-card stuffed mining PCs, where will those machines go? The miners are either going to be left with awesome videogaming rigs (Skyrim at 8000px on a wall-size HD TV, anyone?), or else the Poser/Daz 3D rendering market is about to see a flood of high-end graphics cards on eBay. Those running a GPU renderer, and in the market for a ninja graphics card or two, may want to keep an eye on eBay in the coming months.
Poser Direct now has two cool bonus freebies available with every purchase from his store.
Here are some of the freebies I’ve noted this month for DAZ Studio and Poser users:
Timbers are definitely ‘a shivering with Mortemvetus. A message in a bottle; the wheel of a haunted pirate ship; and a treasure map. (Aug 2017: link fixed)
Pirates vs. Vikings? In 3D-land, anything is possible! Viking Longboats as .obj models with textures. And the Gabare, which is more of a coastal trading vessel, and also done as .obj models with textures. The textures loaded up fine for me.
Xanadu looks rather good, if you need a “1940s USA” look for a scene. I guess you could also turn it 90 degrees, add another copy, and stick it far in the distance behind some haze — to serve as a sci-fi tower?
Gasbit is a Poser-rigged free character. I’m guessing that a bit of extra work, and some Photoshop magic, might also turn him into more of a semi-toon astronaut boy…
Yet another great new scene from Stonemason, in his growing abandoned city series. Abandoned Interiors: Warehouse joins the set.
