Update February 6th: Vivienne Daguerre has an excellent article on using these programmes to create / edit content suitable for use in SL (and OpenSim, no doubt!).
Slightly off-topic for me – but those of you working in 3D or getting into it might like to know – assuming you don’t already – that Daz are giving away FREE versions of the following:
- Daz Studio 4.0 Pro
- Bryce 7.0 Pro
- Hexagon 2.5
Together with a range of plug-ins and additional items. The three packages are offered full and unimpeded in terms of functionality, but on a limited-time offer basis. Versions for both the PC and Mac are on offer. Serial numbers are supplied via e-mail post-download / available via your account page. All told the three applications represent a saving of over $800 on the US retail prices.
To find out more, visit the Daz website. You’ll need to register for an account (no need to supply credit card details), and downloads are held on your Profile page for the specified offer period.
My thanks to CS for pointing this out to me.
