Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

[QUOTE=Vercingetorix] Well I downloaded it and even decided to buy a few morph packs as well since the genesis model doesn't really start with too many options for changing it's appearance.

If anybody else intends to buy something from the DAZ store make sure you look out for bundles within bundles I purchased 2 morph bundles for what I thought was a good price only to find them being sold together with several other bundles for a even cheaper price then what I paid for them individually![/QUOTE]

Daz is really good about returns as long as it is within 30 days of purchase. Just contact support with what happened and how you'd like it fixed, and they'll usually accomodate you. (It is easiest if you take a credit rather than a refund, but they'll do it either way.) So in your case, just say you'd like to return the bundles (for credit or refund) and then buy the cheaper bundle that has both.

Edit: If you are going to buy a lot of stuff, consider joining the Platinum Club, which gets you an extra 30% discount off of most things, and a $6 voucher good for Daz Originals each month.kittiewan2012-02-08 06:06:22

Don't forget everybody that BLENDER is ALWAYS FREE and you can find lots of meshes and tutorials online, it's very powerful software as well. Here is a link if anyone would like to purchase a tutorial on how to mesh in blender, this is pretty incredible software for being free, anyway just wanted to pass on the info! Because not everyone can afford the expensive models that DAZ sells in this hard hit economy, which is really how DAZ makes there money. Anyway so hopefully those of you out there will also be better off if you learn Blender because it also does MUCH MUCH more then DAZ and could open many more doors for you as well if you have this knowledge! Have Fun, Later All....

I have been using blender since it first came out.It is an powerful app to work with ,but the interface is quite a mess compared to daz3d.Doing animations with daz3d is also much easier to do than blender.Most of posers models also work with daz which means there are lots of free models out there to download which could be used in daz3d.

Daz is mostly used for quick renders and ideas where blender can be used for more professional and polished stuff.Also the renders are a bit bland with daz3d Which means more postwork has to be done , blender is way better with it's rendering techniques.And blender has that fantastic cartoon shaders already built in for free.Daz3d also sports cartoon rendering but it's definitely not as good as blender.

Yes blender is free, but it has the worst GUI I've seen. So it is necessary purchase tons of tutorials only to understand the user interface.


[quote]Because not everyone can afford the expensive models that DAZ sells in this hard hit economy, which is really how DAZ makes there money[/quote]

Don't forget Hexagon is free in this offer ,too .With this you can modeling what you want

[quote]...and you can find lots of meshes[/quote]

Also can you use all free objects in DAZ Studio.
Also To know , you get with this offer the DAZ pro features. There are good Tools for rigging and morphing your own content.

The only bad thing for game developers wishing to use DAZ studio 4 pro !! is the game license cost, which is cost about 500$ for indie :(

link

that mean even i already bought a model from vendor DAZ 3D, i still need to buy another license to use it for my game :(, Does Poser have the same rule too ?.prinsukun2012-03-13 04:03:59

The license mean this only for the orginal 3D DAZ object. But this are too highpoly for 3D games and not really usefull.

You know, You can moddeling your own mesh with hexagon and rigging it with DAZ pro . That is your Art and your copyright !

Also a rendering it as images for sprites is free !

I was just wondering
has anybody figured out a good workflow for creating sprite animations using Daz Studio 4? and I mean original sprite animations not just animations that use the motion capture stuff Daz sells in their store?

I've been trying for a while to create my own animations with the software but I keep encountering problems that make creating decent animation either unecessarily difficult or near impossible.
