Ok, so it’s 3.30pm on ‘Black Friday’ here in the UK. Which means its about 9am in the morning in the USA. So, what has Black Friday got to offer the 3D artist?
DAZ has 55% off nearly all Stonemason content, though not his most recent packs.
Also discounted by 55% are a wide variety of core sets of age morphs for DAZ Studio’s various Genesis base characters.
And most of Dreamlight’s catalogue is at 55% off, including the useful Light Dome Pro for $15.73.
Runtime DNA has a Black Friday Real Deals page. Lots of discounts, plus a 10% discount code.
1,700 Cornucopia 3D Vue models are 50% off. The Vue software itself is 50% off.
Renderosity just has a one-day one-use 35% coupon code offer, at their Black Friday Savings page.
Poser Pro 11 is of course 30% discounted, through 30th November. Only three days left to grab it! While you’re there, note that Manga Studio 5 (comics production software, with some of the best inking brushes in the business) is also a whopping 65% off.
HiveWire 3d has a “Save up to 70% with Black Friday / Cyber Monday” Sale. Not a big selection on offer, but I did notice Fluffy Cat (Poser only) for the Millennium Cat, for just $5.23. (Note that for some reason it requires the Java runtime to be installed on your PC ‐ for security I strongly advise un-installing Java afterwards, if it’s only needed for the installer).
HiveWire also have a horse-crazy CWRW Cloud Foundation Sale, which is a big sale of its superb 3D horses and stable-wear clothing.
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.
