DAZ is currently giving away a suite of software worth over $1000. Free, and seemingly not time-bombed. It includes:
* DAZ Studio 4 Pro [see 3D World‘s recent review of Pro for what’s included] + its $199 3D Bridge for Photoshop + GoZ for Daz Studio [a bridge to 3D sculpting tool ZBrush].
* DAZ’s landscapes creation software Bryce 7 Pro + content + pro materials pack.
* DAZ’s likable 3D modelling package Hexagon in its latest version.
The offer is apparently very time limited, and may be expiring as you read this — so grab it now if you want them. Here’s a screenshot, as proof it’s a real offer…
Note that despite what the purchase page says about 3D Bridge for Photoshop only working with DAZ Studio 3, once you get to the actual downloads you have a choice for the 3D Bridge for Photoshop for either DAZ Studio 3 or 4.
Also note that the Pro version of Studio ships with the FBX exporter, making it suitable for exporting some lower-poly DAZ characters to iClone via FBX and 3DXchange 4 Pro. What you won’t get is a Decimator (poly reduction) plugin that enables the DAZ content to be made useful in iClone — that only comes with the $100 Game Developer Kit addon. Also note that DAZ Studio 4 Pro’s Content Library system is still a nightmare to use with large content libraries.
Oh, and don’t forget to grab the serial numbers, as well as the installation and content files!
