    "Nothing special."

    December 12, 2010  |   By DaddioOnThePaddio

    Version: DAZ Studio 3.1.2.19

    Pros

    The price was right on target...free!

    Cons

    Insufficient power to do anything more than basic 3D stuff. The app is a marketing too for suckers to purchase additional art.

    Summary

    If you are looking for a flexible 3D program, this ain't it. DOn't look for 2D to 3D converters or anything the slight bit sophisticated. The functionality is basic, but the degree of command complexity is significant. Not for the faint of heart. I am still looking!

    "DAZ is an awesome product"

    December 31, 2009  |   By WyldAngel

    Version: DAZ Studio 3.0.1.135

    Pros

    DAZ is somewhat easier to use than Poser, though I am trying to learn Poser on my own.

    Cons

    The new DAZ program is giving me a problem by not accepting the link to the products to use in the program.

    Summary

    I have used all of the earlier versions of DAZ and haven't had any problems really moving from one version to the next. With version 3, I am having the hardest time to get the program to link to the folders with the models and accessories in. I would really love to be able to create again, but this is making it impossible, and none of the older versions with will. They all ask for the update.
    If anyone knows of a FREE online class situation teaching DAZ 3 from the very beginning, feel free to let me know.

    "Trialware not freeware"

    October 6, 2009  |   By getittowork

    Version: DAZ Studio 3.0.1.144

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This should be listed as shareware. Shareware you use and then pay. Same here. Just want to get you to use it. If you do not use shareware then you don't pay. Same here. Please recategorize your software. Freeware never requires money except a donation to use as long as you want.

    "Smoother, faster, easier"

    July 11, 2009  |   By Random_Walk

    Version: DAZ Studio 3.0.1.135

    Pros

    Smoother, faster, and more comprehensive than previous versions. Still very friendly to system resources.

    Cons

    tab behavior is slightly different than before, and there's a free vs. paid-for version now. May need OpenGL upgrade on your machine.

    Summary

    Version 3 is a vast improvement on its predecessors in usability, speed, and features. More advanced lighting is included now, and there are a lot of exciting features that operate smoothly. The only cons are the still-present learning curve (though this is common in all CG apps of this class), and there is a niggling behavior with the tool tabs in that they don't stack up as tightly as they used to (this is only a personal nitpick, however). If your version of OpenGL doesn't meet minimums (you can find out via your video card driver documentation), you may have to upgrade your vidcard driver to catch up.

    "Clean user friendly interface that responds quickly"

    June 23, 2009  |   By HaroldEB

    Version: DAZ Studio 3.0.1.120

    Pros

    User friendly interface. Responds faster than Poser 7.

    Cons

    Not very fault tolerant. I've crashed the program two of the four times I've used it so far. Doesn't support the textures supplied with some content.

    Summary

    A very good introduction to 3D and the price can't be beat,

    "Read the FAQ before bashing this product."

    May 30, 2009  |   By jchery1

    Version: DAZ Studio 2.3.3.146

    Pros

    I love it. I can do animation as easy as drinking water.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything cons except if we could model ourselves, that would be great.

    Summary

    I love this product because it is easy to use and the best of all it is free.

    May 18, 2009  |   By peterwhickman

    Version: DAZ Studio 2.3.3.146

    Pros

    I can't think of anything to like in a product that doesn't work.

    Cons

    Wouldn't download properly on my Intel Mac, Error reading files message. Viewport remains empty even after downloading figures. Default figures not appearing. Can't find any files. Dynamic Clothing not available on Mac. Unfriendly to beginners.

    "DAZ Studio will NOT run"

    January 9, 2009  |   By jessepps

    Version: DAZ Studio 2.3.3.146

    Pros

    Impossible to evaluate because it will NOT run.

    Cons

    DAZ Studio installer requires the user to click "IGNORE" permissions changes fifteen (15) times before it will install. Why?

    Summary

    Impossible to evaluate because it will NOT run.
