Time for another survey of the new and recent 3D content for DAZ Studio and Poser, for other related software, plus links to other goodies. Not quite monthly, as the last such was back on 20th August. So it’s roughly a six-weekly survey this time.
Available now, the new Digital Art Live magazine #72 (October 2022). Newly expanded, with ten new additional features and 108 pages. The theme this month is “Costume”, with a focus on fun and futuristic clothes.
It this sells at $5 then the following issue will be on AI image generators.
HF Asterya for G8F. Looks great. Hellfyre71 now has quite a nice line in humanoid aliens.
Car Viter, a Syd Mead-like personal vehicle of the future for DAZ Studio. Looks “very Mead”.
Cafe Racer for DAZ Studio.
Car Tork for DAZ, suitable for sandy and swampy places.
IBOT D2, floater bots for corridors.
The IBOT D2’s are probably hunting for Coflek-gnorg’s Critter. A bionic dino shark-bot!
The classic AirFish, now for DAZ Studio.
1971s Sci-fi interior kit for Poser, and he has another separate page for a DAZ version. 8 modular parts. His content always toons nicely in Poser’s real-time Comic-book mode.
Planning to help Elon take his Boring Company tunnel-digging to Mars? Then you’ll be needing the AtoZ Mobile Dual Beam Gantry Crane and tunnel sections.
Broomhelga for La Femme for Poser.
Cirque De Lune Texture Set for La Femme. Plus poses.
Photo Props: Bottles by ShaaraMuse3D. Pop all sorts inside, from micro-moss landscapes to pesky imprisoned imps.
The classic Steam outpost, now for DAZ Studio.
1971s has a new Underground Place kit for Poser and DAZ. A classic type environment which reminds me of the waterworks under the city of Vivec in the famous videogame Morrowind. There’s another separate page for a DAZ version. Suitable for Halloween revels with the monsters.
A dForce Stage Outfit for G8F. Unusual, and I imagine you could make the web pattern glow.
Halloween Hair. Fun, but could also form part of an unusual ‘yeti-type superhero’ kitbash for a new addition to your comic-book team.
Scruffy Hair Set for G8M. Always useful to have this sort of Gollum-hair, since it’s so rare.
Everyday items, fruit and vegetables. I guess this sorts of counts for Halloween, as these days some think you should give nice healthy broccoli (eew…) to kids instead of candy. The potatoes and tubers looks especially nicely done.
CW Jospeh for Genesis 8, a handsome vampire with just the right sort of face for a less photoreal look (e.g for a 3D comic).
Another Vulture Mask for G8F.
Not much in toon this month, as everyone switches to Halloween and Christmas. But Norbert the Nerd for Genesis 8 appeals, as a photoreal semi-toon.
Cutie Cloud Bundle studio set for DAZ Studio.
A generic Bicycle for Poser. Looks to be electrically assisted, and the sort of town run-about you might see in Japan.
Steampunk Submarine SeaMaid, possibly useful for a storybook adventure.
Hobby Props Art Supplies for DAZ Studio, including crayons.
Poses and AniBlocks:
Skydive G8 poses. Unusual, and possibly very useful if that’s what you want for your scene or animation. Could perhaps also double-up as outer-space weightless-ness poses? But for that see also HF Outer Space Poses for Genesis 8 Female.
Characters and clothing:
DZ G8F FemmeFataleZ. Looks similar to the Catwoman character, but not being any kind of a DC Comics or movies fan I’m not sure how similar. Be wary of commercial use, as DC Comics are very protective of their IP. For G8F.
Victoria 9 HD, pre-order, for the forthcoming Genesis 9 free base figure. Apparently you need to be able to already comfortably run HD figures, to run this one. Also needed will be the very latest DAZ Studio.
Sexy Leotardo Classic for G8. And it is indeed, since it looks like a ‘instant classic’ go-to for many.
Songbird ReMix Parrots Vol 5 – Amazons of the World 1. Another triumph for Ken’s line of birds packs. See also the Songbird ReMix Perching Places and Eggs and Nestlings for garden birds.
DS Cadichon for DAZ Horse 2. Strange name, but it’s a donkey with pack gear. The gear probably needs a dust and wear pack for a makeover.
Texture Pack for the Hivewire Winged Horse and Poser.
Steampunk Pirate Octopus. A static model, but nicely done. Would be fab to see something akin to this made for Poser / DAZ.
LoREZ Horse 2 Bundle, a useful looking general cart-horse.
Landscapes and environments:
OpenWater, a block of open sea with waves. Looks useful, when you don’t want and can’t really control a big plane of water that might try to take up your entire scene.
Also a matching Wading model.
3 Beach Materials in SBS and PBR.
Raffy Raffy’s new Four biomes, though for Blender rather than for Vue.
BW Primitive Weapons Bundle. Also digging and skinning tools.
Far From Home – Roman Legionary. Looks like it has just about everything you’d need to build your own legion, provided you can get more than four G8s in a scene. For G8M.
Viking Town Set 2. Older content from VanishingPoint, and showing its age, but now available for DAZ Studio. Also suitable for a Saxon settlement, seen from a distance or in a bird’s eye view. May also interest Vue users who can put an ecosystem on parts of it.
Napoleon’s Polish Lancer Bundle for G8. Specialist military historical content, no doubt a big hit in Poland.
Classic Silver Age retro Comic-book helmets.
A 1930s German Nurse for Poser.
Scripts and Utilities:
Ken K’s new script has been released. One-click to fit clothing to body morphs on figures in Poser 12 (only). There’s a video demo.
OBJ Companion, “makes creating morphs using OBJ files easier”. Seems to be a helper for content makers switching between DAZ and Blender.
D-Talks! Realtime Talking Chatbot for DAZ Characters. Works with SAPI5 voices.
Legacy Set Converter. I’d always be wary of letting an autobot loose on a big runtime, but this apparently goes through on automatic and converts everything to the current DAZ .DUF format.
Bone Minion for Genesis 8 for Generation 4 (V4 and M4).
dForce Case Studies : An In-Depth Tutorial Guide. Break through your dForce learning roadblocks.
An easier and better way to do displacement in Poser 12.
Creating a hand grasp from one main dial in the body of the Poser figure.
Creating Scripts for Moho, the 2D animation software that uses Python. Formerly Smith Micro’s Anime Studio. No longer interfaces with Poser, sadly, put perhaps someone could whip up a new Python script for that?
Ok, that’s it for the latest round-up. Be sure to pick up the new edition of Digital Art Live magazine. More next month!
