Softonic review

Free and powerful 3D modeling app

3D modeling applications are renowned for two things - complexity and expense. DAZ studio attempts to change this with a free but extremely powerful 3D modeling environment that will have even beginners producing impressive 3D models.

DAZ Studio is aimed at beginners with no modeling experience who want something that takes you by the hand but doesn't lack in features. In addition to modeling, it will be of interest to animators because it features a lip-sync feature to add audio, a smoothing angle to smooth surfaces, and morphing effects. It has to be said that these are some of DAZ's more advanced features and the easy-to-use principle soon fades when you try to morph 3D models - indeed knowing where to start is a task in itself.

DAZ Studio also allows you to perfect your models by offering different camera angles, lighting, and a collection of plug-ins that can expand for users looking for more power. There are a few basic preferences and options regarding how you wish to view your modeling environment, although it's trial and error to find out what each one does.

The best thing about DAZ Studio is that even novices can produce some pretty impressive 3D models in six steps. Advanced animators and modelers will find the software extremely limited though.

Version 3.1.1.73 contains support for Bryce 7 and is required in order to use the DAZ Studio Bridge feature within Bryce 7. This is the latest full version of DAZ Studio 3.
