Mike’s DAZ3D First Impressions for April 17, 2021

A Collection of Opinions and Observations from the DAZ 3D Marketplace

Today’s Promo: A “Build Your Own Bundle”

Today’s Releases: Iray shaders, high heels, mini skirt + bodysuit, light set, a nyef, radio talk show set, head-morph presets, a curly hair wig for G8 females, lipstick action poses


These bright and neon Iray shaders will transform your drab into fab! Or take you right back to the 1980s.

Not a huge fan of these “re-made” shoes and textures.

This mini-skirt and bodysuit ensemble is sharp! I just wish it had an adjustable hemline.

This glamor studio comes in three sets and styles and features Iray lights, but is three enough or should there be more?

Another new, young, European female character for G8.1F but at least she’s “complete” unlike several that have been released recently.

A radio talk-show set for Studio. Perfect opportunity for you to render the next Don Imus or Howard Stern!

These 25 head morph presets won’t add any bloat but will add some variety to your men.

It’s 2021. Hair should have dforce. But this curly wig is still cute and fresh. Still wish it had dforce though.

These lipstick poses and props will help your female characters get glammed up for your renders. Some of the poses included look a little unnatural but then again so do 75% of the renders posted to DA too.


One hour and fifteen minuets. I’m quite impressed with that turn-around time. I can do 75 minutes. I can’t do another 6 or 7 hours.

The releases released this morning weren’t entirely terrible. I’ll probably end up picking up most of the items. Hell, even for some I said I might not. And the reason is I’m finding myself using things more and more not how they were intended. Scaling objects, using poses for different things, that sort of thing.

And that’s the beauty of DAZ Studio, it lets you think so much out of the box and use things in ways they were never intended to be used.

And that’s why I keep coming back.

Thoughts?

Update/ Edit: On second-thought never mind. Every single item in my cart was moved to my wish list for later when they go on clearance. Didn’t buy anything today.

I agree with you Tahnee has a useful skin. I like the lipstick poses as well, even though in some poses the lipstick is held awkwardly.
