Right, nearly the end of the month… and thus time for another survey of interesting new items for Poser and DAZ Studio. I may have missed one or two, as I could only get so far back on the DAZ Store, as usual.
Not much original sci-fi this month, but there’s a nice pack with sci-fi alternatives to the usual stock Primitives, FM Glowing Things. Also useful for Synthwave scenes and suchlike.
Robot X95A, a late 1940s sci-fi pulp robot.
A free Sonic Screwdriver for DAZ Carrara, from the British TV series Doctor Who. I don’t recall what era this is from. There’s also a Tennant-era DrTen Sonic Screwdriver Prop for Poser. Obviously these are fan-art so can’t be used commercially.
Also from Doctor Who, an Alpha Centaurian for Poser. It looks a bit stagey because the original was a man-in-a-suit costume on a 1970s TV show.
On ArtStation the free and nicely-made Small work 1 comms tower, which can be easily exported from Blender to .OBJ or .FBX format. See the ‘Scripts’ section at the end of this post for a new free Blender-to-Poser automated script.
Over-the-top Crazy Arsenal of Weapons, and one fine steampunk pistol that’s a bit more restrained.
B.E.T.T.Y. Adjustable Floor Lamps.
Helmet 043 by MightMight. A kit-bashing base, for G3M.
Geirrod the Giant for Genesis 8.1 Male. Not HD, which is good.
Anemone Hair for G8F. Looks like sea-anemone filaments. See also the tail-end of last month’s vast Mermaid surge, which is continuing this month on the DAZ Store.
Free fantasy-style Metal Claws for G8F.
House with interior for Poser, from 1971s. Also for DAZ. Morrowind fan-art, so be wary of using it in a commercial graphic-novel etc. He has enough of these now that you could effectively recreate Balmora for a Morrowind fan-comic or animation. Someone should make stilt-striders and pack-guars, and it would be complete.
Photo Props: Wizard Effect Maker 2. More in-scene wizarding effects from ShaaraMuse3D.
Zlamoosk: Standalone Character for DAZ Studio.
Expressive Milkman Andy INJ for Poser. Andy2 is a stock figure that ships with Poser 11. Definitely a bit scary, so it’s in the Halloween category.
Pudgy the Corgi, a toon corgi dog with “dForce fur options”.
Oso Newt for Genesis 8.1 Male and Alternate Textures which also fit other lizardy and froggy figures.
On ArtStation, a toony Bio-lab factory. For Cinema 4D, but presumably easily exported.
A free ballet Tutu for Noname Doll, which is a free cartoon figure.
Not much this month, which is surprising just before the ‘back to school’ mania kicks in, but there is a dForce Petite Style Soft Salopette and Sketch Set. For pre-schoolers who like to draw and chalk.
An Ancient Roman Patrician estate-house.
Abandoned Abbey for DAZ Studio.
A v176 Desert Tribe Hut of a vaguely Timbuktu / Mali cast.
Free Rococo Hair for GM8 and GF8.
A Classic Wooden Bathtub in the Old West style, for Poser and DAZ. With MATs.
A bath is just what your dForce Mountain Trapper will be needing after a long day’s bear-hunting.
There is yet more Pirate themed content going through the DAZ store, this month. Way too much to cover here.
GWR U4 Composite Coach by DryJack, a Victorian railway coach including interior.
A free MarkV WW1 Tank for Poser, with simple texture.
A 1970s Deep Diving Suit by Cybertenko, for M4 and Poser.
A later 1930s Greyhound cross-country U.S. passenger coach.
Car Rapide for DAZ, a local runabout bus of the sort seen in the Caribbean and Thailand and elsewhere.
Nature and animals:
DA Clydesdale for DAZ Horse 2. Big British working horses of the Midlands and North.
Baxter the British Bulldog for Dog 8 and Bulldog Poses.
Two Track in the Woods for DAZ Studio. This looks usefully generic, handy for everything from hobbit walking-parties to Bigfoot hunters to bird-watching.
Figure addons and helpers:
Free Fine Mesh Eyebrows for La Femme in Poser.
A free Cigarette and holder for iRay. Also a free Lit cigarette and a Lit Cigar for Poser.
A free yard stick Poser prop. Poser Pro has good measurement tools, used by the forensics ‘crime-scene reconstruction’ crowd who use the software, but this offers users a visible alternative.
A pack of Spanish/South American Latin Head Morphs for G8F.
Jog Motions for G3M and the AniMate plugin.
Skate Or DAZ! Pro Skater AniBlocks, for skateboarding characters.
AniBlocks Talking LipSync System & Conversation Generator.
Fix-A-File Script for Poser 12 Early Access, on Windows only it seems. Does useful things like… “Fix absolute file paths, to turn all absolute references inside the file into relative ones, so it’ll open in other machines”.
Automatic Blender to Poser export script, auto-deleting lights and cameras and ensuring the .FBX mesh sizing and orientation is correct for Poser. (See the latest Digital Art Live magazine, issue 60, page 31)
Ghostship2 - Poser 12 Materials. If you had the Poser 11 version of this, then you know how useful these materials from Ghostship will be in Poser 12 Early Access. 311 quality procedural Superfly materials for Poser 12. Superfly is Poser’s implementation of Blender’s Cycles.
Digital Nature with Ken Gilliland. Three hours with the master of 3D animals.
Textures Universe: Creating and Editing Textures for DAZ Studio and Poser, with Fain.
How to get a bigger Sketch Designer in Poser 11.
Ok, that’s it for August. More picks next month.
