It’s that time again. Here’s my monthly round-up of interesting or unusual new content for DAZ and Poser, and occasionally for other software. As usual the DAZ site locked up and became unresponsive after page 4, so I may have missed some. Also as usual, freebies are only linked if commercial-use or obvious fan-art.
Cybertenko’s Sci-fi Modular Helmet for M4, with lots of great variants.
Coflek-Gnorg’s Worm for Poser and DAZ. With a bit of wrangling two worms could also double-up as horns.
The Jar for DAZ Studio.
REX Hsu and his free mecha platforms in .OBJ format.
Steampunk Horse for DAZ Studio.
Steampunk Bird for DAZ Studio.
The free The Steampunk HeartGlass.
Monster Blades for DAZ Studio.
Aeros for the HiveWire Horse. A flying horse figure with animations.
Spooky Halloween for DAZ Studio. Appears to have a stylized broomstick/mop that would match well the DAZ toon goth-girl Lenore and the Raven. Just desaturate the textures and re-load.
FrankenNip props set, a toon Frankenstein’s castle lab.
The free Lolo Kitty for Lolo Hai.
A free Pose pack for Darkseal’s Iznt toon character, with 24 poses.
Cute Socks Set for G8F with wrinkle morphs.
Various ‘Putting coat on’ morphs for the Hoodie for Kids 4.
Songbird ReMix Amazon. Quality birds of the Amazon Basin, for Poser and DAZ. A wealth of lovely birds in a pack fully updated in September 2021.
Songbird ReMix Cool & Unusual 2, for Poser and DAZ. Including hummingbirds.
Pip the Chick. A just-hatched fluffy chick.
Free PiSong Tree Frog Poses and Poses for Poser 4 frog. Poser 4? Well, yes… still useful for artists’ reference. And who knows, they may just fit the Gecko and other PiSong toonimals, which for some reason have no poses today.
A free Basilisk Den set for DAZ Studio.
Predatron’s Date Palm Trees for DAZ Studio. Realistic, with browned under-leaves.
Egyptian Elements for DAZ Studio. Ancient Egyptian desert ruins, un-painted.
Almost Mermaid for La Femme for Poser. A mermaid tail.
Anime Jester for La Femme, with a somewhat-Moebius hat.
Women’s jumpsuit with embroidery and blouse for Marvelous Designer. Could probably be got to DAZ by a clothing expert.
Scripts, presets and node-noodling:
A basic de-grunging Matcap for Poser 11. Remove grunge and speckling from materials, while retaining the overall colour. To be used in combination with the Poser Comic Book mode, to get colour flats.
Capture the DAZ Studio ‘real-time rendered’ iRay Viewport, and speed up animation capture by over 80%.
Face To Face Autopose Arms for DAZ Studio. Confusing named, but basically: put a hand or finger in contact with a specific bit of the scene. You already have “Look At That!” scripts. Think of this as “Touch that!”.
MARSA Pipe Dream. Again, another script that’s a bit mis-named. Tubing and pipe creator scripts for DAZ Studio. Can be randomized.
MAT Edit for Poser 12. A fully-feature material editor and wrangler.
One-click ‘Easy Silhouette’ view for Blender 2.9 or higher. See how your scene ‘reads’, in terms of its silhouetted shapes.
FlowScape: Paint 3D Animated Scenes in Seconds. FlowScape is the affordable and fun real-time landscape maker.
Second Skin: The Complete Guide to Geoshells in DAZ Studio.
How to create fog in Vue, as in “true volumetric fog” which streetlights and window-lights mistily glow through. Nice, but I’m guessing you may need a big render farm to render it.
And finally, DAZ Studio now runs on a Mac again.
That’s it for this month. More picks in October.
