Time for another monthly survey of the recent goodies released for DAZ Studio and Poser.
As usual, freebies are not covered here unless they have “commercial-use”, or are scripts which the maker doesn’t want sold by others, or are such obvious fan-art that everyone should know they can’t be used commercially.
All the sci-fi energy went into cyberpunk on the DAZ Store this month but — while they’re pretty — I assume they’re all ‘near fan-art’ for the big new 2077 mega-game. Which I hear flopped so badly it was taken off sale and buyers were refunded. Ouch.
Sci-Fi Debris Field. A simple foreground vignette scene, ideally for a vast structure looming in the fog behind. But effective and detailed.
v176 Iray Cobblestone Textures for DAZ.
Need a rest after your ostrich ride? Slump down in a free Armchair.
A free Drinking Fountain, of the sort you might find in the old streets of continental Europe. Useful street clutter for your steampunk scenes.
Not a Human Skull Morphs, which look ideal for unusual display-cases in your steampunk museum.
The Living Doll Bonnet. I assume the pins, dollheads and candy could be removed, to allow it to be given it a more sci-fi / Moebius makeover. I also assume it’s not fan-art, but I guess it might be similar to something from a game or movie. As usual, do your research before you commit to using renders from a Poser/DAZ item for a commercial project like a graphic novel.
A new addition to the fine riverine / island props of 1971s, a Pirate watchtower.
And swimming beneath the watchtower? Definitely the new Fishsnakes.
When the Fishsnakes attack, you’ll be needing the new Archery Animations for Genesis.
It’s plain Sparrows vs. fancy Pet Shop birds at HiveWire. The closing-down sale ends 4th January, when they load up the Ark and sail many of the animals over to Renderosity.
The Philosopher’s Egg store, that I haven’t been ignoring, just lost track of. Foxes, Wolves and Dog Breeds, all for the HiveWire Big Dog.
My Furry Friend Poses. Cat meets human, cat wins every time…
dForce Petite Style Dress and Scarf Set for toddlers.
A new Hr-240 hair by quality hair-maker Ali.
Toon and semi-toon:
Race Car for Blender. Obviously only for Whacky Races fan-art.
Free Fancy Cats for Melody and Micah.
Mighty Mite’s Mega-Kitbashers’ Freebies 2020 for Daz Studio. With “stick-on” geometry that may be useful for those who use DAZ to produce “trace-over” renders for comics production.
Free Decorating the Christmas Tree poses for G8F and G8M. And a free Mistletoe prop.
Waiting for Santa, a free Christmas doggie-house.
New from quality scene-maker Raffy Raffy, a $10 Polar pack-ice mega-environment for Blender.
To get your shivering scientists across that lot you’ll be needing the new free Wooden Sledge. Possibly a new DAZ conversion from Bryce?
A Carrara Nightshirt for Genesis. DAZ Carrara can load the early Genesis figures.
Nonesuch Court 2 for DAZ.
A free Windmill of the farm water-pumping variety.
A worn Painting workbench for Blender.
Textures for Snub-nosed P-40 Warhawk, for Poser.
Characters and figures:
Realistic Skin Shader for Keyshot. The latest Keyshot 10 apparently now handles hair/eyelash transmaps properly (I still haven’t had time to test that), and so some may want this for their DAZ-to-Keyshot experiments with figure imports.
Passiflora V4 by Tempesta3d, noted here because it’s a now-rare V4 offering and has a high quality skin MAT.
Copper Twinklefoot, a ‘late Michael Jackson’ a-like for DAZ, with a dash of Woebegone Alley for some of the morphs.
A simple free Mini-dress for La Femme. Possibly useful for recording YouTube tutorials where she needs to be covered up, but without looking either a frump or a floozie.
Scene addons, utilities and scripts:
Dreamlight’s Instant Fog for DAZ.
Feet Lock/Unlock script for ALL Genesis Figures. With a handy menu.
Three working scripts to load Poser’s saved render presets. For the first time, Poser’s Sketch .PZS presets can also be loaded by a script.
Restore Default iRay Engine Render-settings for DAZ Studio 4. It already has a “Defaults” button, but this may be of use for scripting-of-scripts.
Ok, that’s it for 2020. Onward to 2021!
