Whether you're a hobbyist, an enthusiast, or a 3D pro working for a studio, you know 3D art can be a complex beast. Thankfully, Daz 3D takes care of all the technical stuff so you can spend more time creating. Explore Daz's thousands of ready-made, rigged and textured 3D Assets ready for export to the software of your choice with the new Daz Bridges and native File Formats.
Read on to find out how you can use Daz to transform your 3D art process.
Daz takes the time and labour out of 3D art, and with Daz’s new bridges to Maya, Blender, 3ds Max, and Cinema 4D – as well as an initial release of products with native file formats, creating the perfect render has never been easier. Whether you render in Daz Studio, port content to your favourite 3D software using the Daz Bridges, or purchase products from Daz to use directly in the software of your choice, creating your 3D scene with Daz is fun, intuitive, and most importantly, imaginative.
01. Start with the most versatile 3D Library
Don't know where to start with your art? Daz offers a massive library of versatile 3D assets to choose from. The Daz Shop is a diverse collection of Characters, Hair, Outfits, props, and environments, plus tonnes of products made for specific 3D needs like HDRIs, Emissives (3D Lights), Pose sets, Textures & Materials, and Merchant Resources.
Choose from themed bundles to make your whimsical fairytale city, your dark and twisted futuristic society, or anything in between. When you've settled on your vision, Daz's high quality 3D content is waiting for you. Carefully rigged, mapped, and set up, Daz 3D Assets always come ready to render.
02. Transfer your Daz assets with ease
Daz 3D now offers two new avenues to use Daz Content wherever you work. Daz Bridges transfer your Daz Library to the other software you love to create in, and the Daz Shop offers native File Formats for thousands of 3D Assets. Whether you work in Maya, Blender, Cinema 4D, or 3ds Max, Daz can help you create.
Daz Bridges means conversion is a snap, as you'll see from the tutorial video above (Daz Studio to Blender – just one of the super helpful tutorials available). Textures, UVs and rigs port directly from Studio, so you can continue creating with Daz 3D's morphable and mashable content in your preferred software. And when you need Daz Studio functionality or want to render or animate outside of Daz, just use your Bridge’s supported render engines: EEVEE and Cycles for Blender; VRAY and Arnold for Maya; VRAY, Octane and Redshift for Cinema 4D; and VRAY, Physical and Arnold for 3ds Max.
03. Create Your 3D World
With one trip to Daz 3D, you can download the premier free 3D software, free character starter packs, and start morphing 3D Models to suit your needs in Daz Studio, Maya, Blender, 3ds Max, or Cinema 4D. Grab new props and environments from Daz, or combine Daz Models with your other 3D Assets. Then pose, animate, and render using the software you know and love.
3D art is all about your creativity, and Daz 3D is here to help 3D hobbyists, artists and designers, no matter where you work. With Daz, you get to leave the technical details behind and focus on what matters most – your artwork. What could you build with Daz 3D?
