A very cool new standalone character for DAZ Studio and Poser, recently released: Madam Shapoklyak. She’s by the same 3D artist who recently released the semi-toon standalone Sherlock Holmes and Watson figures. She looks like she could also work well with Doctor Pitterbill.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
