Going away for the weekend, but leaving your PC running? Then the new Batch Renderer for DAZ Studio may interest you. It will churn out a series of renders, while you have fun. Works with Daz Studio 4.5 and higher, and is compatible with iRay renders.
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.
