Time for another survey of new content for Poser and DAZ Studio, and also to see if there’s also anything interesting for Vue, Unity, Blender, Cartoon Animator and suchlike. The last such survey here was 15th June, so it’s been nearly eight weeks. What goodies have those weeks brought? Read on…
As usual, freebies are only covered here if they’re commercial use, or are such obvious fan-art (e.g. Star Trek) that no-one would accidentally slip them into a comic or suchlike.
Container Houses Set from 1971s.
Coflek-Gnorg’s free Vac U Bot.
A free Cyberchair.
Landtrak Explorer Transportation for Poser. Verging on the ridiculous, but at the same time believable.
Sci-Fi Industrial Complex for SketchUp.
Nibir Auditorium. I’m fairly sure this is a re-listing. But a good place to observe your herd of Elder Gods from.
GP Elder God HD. Definitely not a Lovecraftian Elder God, but a pretty good monster or alien herd-beast.
A free Prohibition Corner. A 1930s gangster distillery, but also useful “clutter props” for a steampunk mad scientist lab.
MS20F Tower of Time. Also available for Vue.
Mercer 1911 for Poser.
Need strange alien intruders in Ronk’s garden? Alien Toon Plants for Unity. I have no idea if it’s possible to get these out of Unity and into Poser or DAZ, but they’re cute enough to try.
SVs Whimsical Mushrooms, now also for DAZ iRay.
A free Basic Pure Shader Pack for Poser. “Color shades are resourced from searches to make sure they were as pure as I could find.” These look like they might be useful for the Poser Comic Book mode. Open Source, so you can tinker and release your own variants.
EasyPose spring and hand for DAZ Studio.
HiveWire Unicorn for the HiveWire Horse.
Free EA Balloons for G8F.
A photoreal Railway Coaling Stage from DryJack. Also useful for mines, and perhaps for re-fuelling your giant steampunk airship.
Jacobean English Dining Table Set for DAZ Studio.
Victorian and Edwardian Staffordshire-style tile pattern shaders.
The restored Poserworld store has the Anglo Saxon Warrior for Michael 3 back on sale again, and at a mere $5.
Oktoberfest Waitress for G8F, a Bavarian beer-cellar type outfit.
First World War listening platform. Because it was kind of useful to know when there was a fleet of Zeppelin airships on the way.
MS20F Lost City in OBJ by London224.
A prehistoric trilobite set for Unity.
Stylised Ice Age Rhinoceros in OBJ. Said to be “game-ready”, but no mention of being rigged. I guess game-makers want to rig their own way.
Gopher hills for Poser, with detailed spoil heaps.
Cockatoos of the World and there are also three other packs.
A free Ball Joint Doll for G8F.
Skydive M4 V4 poses. Not easy to motion-capture!
Free new face shapes for La Femme and L’Homme, the base figures that ship with Poser 11.
Also loads of Chinese wrestling, and yet more pirates, on the DAZ Store.
Toggle Visibility All Lights for Poser. Instantly make any guide-wires for lights invisible in Preview, without actually turning any lights off.
Poser to Clip Studio – the solution. Send a posed clothed figure from Poser to Clip Studio, with no hassle at all.
The free FreeBass MAT Palette. “A tool to catalog / compare up to 36 individual MATs on a single prop”.
Render Doctor for DAZ Studio. Very confusingly explained, but at its core it appears to be for those times when you have a big scene with 50+ cameras set up all over it. Then you want a script to automatically make a render from each camera in turn. Not for animation, and perhaps most useful for comics makers?
Building Poses To Market, a 30 minute tutorial on making poses that will pass inspection on the stores. For DAZ Studio.
That’s all my picks for now, more in due course. Possibly at the start of September.
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.
