There are some 3D programs on the market that are incredibly expensive and some, like Daz Studio, are actually totally free. Many of the programs are so completely out of the price range of most people that they are not even a possibility. If you are just learning about the joys of 3D creation you are often put off by the high price of other programs. However, price is not the only reason Daz Studio is my number one choice in this 3D animation software review. It is also more user friendly than other software on the market. It is easier to learn. It has some really great plug-ins available. Probably the best of all is that Daz Studio is compatible with Poser models and clothes. This means that your choices of models, props, textures and clothing are not as limited as other programs. That opens up a whole realm of possibilities that other software does not offer.
But is it really free? The simple answer is, yes. It doesn't cost you a thing to download and begin using the software. The free download comes with plenty content to get you started learning about the world of 3D animation and imaging. One thing that makes this so great is that you have the opportunity to learn 3D animation and imaging before you spend a fortune. Other 3D software programs are hundreds, sometimes even thousands of dollars. That is a lot of money to spend to learn to this type of art. The learning curves on those other programs are very steep. Most assume you already know all about X, Y, Z planes, models, mapping, textures, morphs, etc. Daz Studio has a much easier learning curve. Instead of getting swamped in trying to figure out what it all means, you spend more time actually creating art. This is why Daz Studio gets my vote for the best 3D animation software in this review.
I have been designing 3D graphics for many years. While I have been known to venture in to other programs, I always come back to Viddyoze 2.0 (see review here). 3D graphic design is my passion and my hobby. I love to design gaming character wallpapers and many other styles of 3D images. When it comes to 3D modeling programs, I will always be partial to the free Daz Studio and hope to be able to off you several useful Viddyoze 2.0 tutorials to help you get started with this great free product.
