Welcome to this month’s survey of recent Poser / DAZ content and scripts. Yes, it’s a week early. But I may be busy at the end of the month.
I’m pleased to say that the DAZ Store seems to have fixed their slow loading / no loading problem, which had persisted for over a year. The store is now loading delightfully fast, for me.
As usual there’s no “HD” character stuff here (most people can’t run it) and non-commercial freebies are only mentioned if obvious fan-art.
Jepe’s WonderPlantZ 3 for DAZ Studio.
The free CyborgHarry for Hivewire Horse. The horse ships free with Poser 12, with both Firefly and SuperFly materials.
A usefully generic DZ G8M ZSuit, though look at Xurge’s future-suits before you buy this.
A free Vorlon Alien. Only for non-commercial Babylon 5 fan-art, obviously.
The free SY Body Sockets for Genesis 8. Cyborg body plugs. Now it just needs someone to make the tangle of fitted pose-able connectors.
The unusual alien HF Prystine for Genesis 8.
Hat Couture for La Femme & L’Homme, for Poser.
The free Syncope Round Glasses for Genesis 8.
Free Fitted Pipes for Bryce. Ready-made gnarly pipework for a steam-room.
A free pack, FP Iconic Makeups for Genesis 3 & 8 Males. Non-commercial use, but that’s presumably because most of it is obvious fanart.
A free Sandclock, aka an hourglass. For DAZ Studio, and also an .OBJ version.
Dynamic nightie for Diva for Dawn, for Poser.
Almost nothing in toon this month. But over on ArtStation, 20 Stylized Aircraft Base Mesh with .OBJ and .FBX formats. Free, but $25 gets extended commercial use.
A free Marshmallow Man for GM8. Not sure how close this is to a once-famous 1950s U.S. marketing figure, so beware of commercial use.
Hair and character:
dForce Gentleman Suit for Genesis 8. Looks usefully generic.
A free Telescopic Walking Stick of the sort given out by modern hospitals.
Free stylish Syncope Sunglasses for Genesis 8.
Lusitana. A free re-release of a universal Poser girl from 2011, made to work in “for all Poser versions”. Presumably if for some reason you have to use Poser 4, she’ll work there.
60 x Low-poly hat and headwear base meshes. With commercial use.
Gaming Poses for G8F, a set useful for those needing poses for tabletop role-playing and card/dice games.
Songbird ReMix Birds of Prey Vol 6 – Eagles of the World 2. A Spanish eagle, among others. For Poser and DAZ.
Nature’s Wonders Lizards of the World Vol. 5. For Poser and DAZ.
Millennium Dog Motions 2 as AniBlocks. I seem to recall that Millennium dog / cat / sheep / lamb etc motions were cross-figure, so they may also work for other early animals.
Just Beachy – Underwater Kelp Forest for DAZ Studio.
Underwater Seabed for Blender. I wouldn’t normally mention Blender stuff, but this is especially made to be “very light and easy to manage” by the expert maker RaffyRaffy.
Modular 3D Kits: Craterscape by ShaaraMuse3D. Shallow small crater impacts, lots of photoreal detail. For Poser and DAZ. Cover them with ocean and they could be underwater nests.
Modular 3D Kits: Sandwashed Desert Ruins by ShaaraMuse3D. For Poser and DAZ.
Ancient Ruins – Lost Civilization, a useful set of mixed generic props.
Mega Terrain: Swampland for DAZ Studio. ‘Beware of falling magicians’ (old Morrowind joke).
Stonemason’s new Temple Of The Sun, a classical Chinese hilltop town setting.
The Eiffel Tower for DAZ Studio. Annoy ze French copyright trolls…
Free Pilot for Michael 4 set. Appears to be American, Second World War. For Poser.
A 1950s female office suit, dForce Basic Jacket Outfit for Genesis 8.1 Female.
DAZ to Cinema 4D Bridge, updated. “Improved UI, better GUI”, and “Basic support for earlier versions” in the form of C4D R22 and R21.
Bone Minion for Generation 4 Poses Bundle and and useage video. Apparently a seamless on-demand pose converter. No need to have a script chug through your 15Tb runtime, for a week. The poses get converted one at a time when you try to load to a figure.
Free Node Navigation Tools for DAZ Studio. DAZ has nodes? Who knew?
dFast for DAZ Studio. Jiggling body-bits for animations, done without dForce… apparently. Don’t blame me if you spend $20 on it and then don’t like it.
A free four-layer iRay shader.
My Technical Search for Poser and Daz Studio, a search-engine for those needing technical information. Now drawing on and searching across 173 sources.
P12 – free Python scripts for Poser 12, my new mega-list page. Poser 12 moved to Python 3, so the software needs these new scripts.
The free SnapTo for Poser 12. A simple object-mover script for Poser 12, and should also work on a Mac in Poser 11 (unless Apple’s Weird Foibles Dept. decided to ban Python this week).
A free Poser 12 Script Starter. A neat little panel to pin stuff to, including one-click render-size settings.
Digital Comics Creative : Volume 1. A new how-to part-work publication for digital comics makers.
How to Master Material Zones webinar recording, for DAZ Studio.
Expert Compositing with DAZ Rendered Backgrounds webinar recording.
Free, the defunct Artzone Wiki 2012 archive – 50 selected pages that could still be useful for Poser / DAZ people in 2022. The Wiki is no longer online.
How to fix the ever-accumulating lights in Poser 12 scenes. A default behaviour that seems likely to be a key show-stopper for new users.
That’s it for this month. As always, please consider becoming my patron on Patreon. Even pledging a few dollars a month is a great help. Thanks.
