Will there be a Mac OS-X version?
Yikes! That is Skeeeerie! I am afraid of this morph pak, because it looks too real, but I bet a whole bunch of people will like it. I think I would be afraid to see my rendering screen after applying the morphs and textures! Yikes!
But hey, it is Very Real Looking!!! Excellent Horror Stuff for those who are not afraid!!!

Mahna :-)... LOL
ok, so when do we get this beta version?
:-) can't wait to use it actually
This is someting I would be very interested in trying. I am always interested in new proggies that help me further my knowledge and ability to work in the digital mediums.
One of your first plugins should be a port of Gaffer(Worley Labs). Of course, there's the dongle issue (authorization code)...
Okay, perhaps I'm not entirely catching the gist of this, so please, someone clarify: is this a DAZ-built Poser-like program, or is this along the lines of Right Hemisphere's Deep Exploration translation program?
In either case, if it's DAZ behind this, it's gotta be good. ^_^
Mitsukai -- It looks like this will be a free Poser 4 level program once it is complete. Pro-Pack and Poser 5 like features will come in the future via plugins (for $$$). Initially it will start out as a beta w/o much content but will rapidly add functionality until finished.
I think it will be good too! DAZ is helping the community grow but it looks like they will not be over extending themselves.
Smart, very smart marketing!
Count me in as i'm probably the only one who has installed Poser 5 and not touched it yet.
Daz Studio sounds like a winner.
is it available now? where can we get the beta?? - CAN'T WAIT!
Sound and looks good to me. One question. WHEN?1?!?!?!?
Fantastic! - when do we get it? - MacOSX?
Want it need it gotta have it. I've got 2 friends! ;)
Looks GREAT! Now this is something I'd jump on! I'm more excited about this than I was about Poser 5 release. Never bought poser 5....they have to pry my poser 4 from my cold dead fingers first! Kudos to Daz!!!
WOw, that sounds like a really good strategy, and a very good idea.
Could you please tell us when we can get the free Beta version ???
Regards from Denmark
OK, I see the line for the beta has begun. ME TOO! ME TOO! But PLEASE make a Mac OS version! beta, I can stand in PC, but I won't buy unless you make a Mac version. CL isn't getting any further business from me until they pony up a Mac version either. :)
ooO! Adaptable 'and' versatile.. *offers up my two sacrifical lambs.. i meant friends.. grins* where do i sign again?
I'm with Mitsukai... will this compete with Poser's market share or is this another kind of tool entirely?
The open GL looks very nice too.
And very smart marketing..a public beta (like Rhino) and a modular build on system is a very very smart approach to a 3d app these days.
Hope about Mac OS X version, is vital for designer and CG animators on Mac !
Don't forgett Mac OS X user, it's vital for designer and CG animators on MAC.
Very cool ideas! I'm with it when it comes out.
Dear lord, they are smart!
I had three requests for a DAZ Studio wishlist, but this did shoot 2 of them in the chest... Don´t think I´m gonna need to beg for things like affordable prices and user friendly license system... gosh! The only thing I´d like to ask, then, would be the abilty to export directly into high-end softs, such as Maya and Max with animation and materials... But that, of course, is up to the plugin people...
Uh, and in case I did not make that clear yet, I am in, And I have at the least a dozen lambs to push into the game... Also, I work with programming and would love to set my hands on a Delphi sdk for this toy!!!!
this one i gotta try. who do i have to XXXXXXX (insert violent or sexistic comment here) to get
my furry hands on that
Looking very forward to it's release! I see a lot of people asking when but have yet to see any kind of answer. This is not a complaint. I'm just one of those wanting to know when it might be available. It sure looks great!
The BETA program launch date is still TBA, but keep checking the DAZ website for updates and announcements.

Yea sounds great. Just wait till you have to buy a half dozen different modules to do anything with it. What happened to the days when you could by software and use it without paying for extra modules that should be part of the software in the first place.
Finally!!! CL has been slacking on the Mac OS X version of Poser. Its the only OS 9 app I still use. I hope DAZ corners the market. Will there be a Cinema 4d import/export plugin?
I can't wait for this. I'm sooooo looking forward to it. Hope we don't have to wait much longer. :O)
Smart....vey smart indeed. I'd love to try it out once the beta is released.
Great news ! I hope MacOs too.
I don't know. If it's free, I'll probably download it, but I don't really have any intention of using it. Don't get me wrong, I love DAZ3D! It's just, I already have Poser 4 and 5, why do I need more software?
I wish best of luck to them, though.
Count me in for the beta as well.
I've done quite a bit of beta (alpha and gamma too!) testing for various programs and games (most recently, the Earth & Beyond game from Westwood) and rather extensive programming and 3D experience.

Why do you need more programs aaron? Because Poser 5 is all-but unusuable as soon as you start adding a couple of textured, clothed characters. It locks up and refuses to render. Because CL refuses to listen to requests for Open GL renderers to give the program fast real-time feedback. Because Poser still has no real-world meauring or co-ordinate system. Because CL desperately needs a major rival to give them a kick up their complacency. Poser is a wonderful program, but no-one could possibly argue that it's all it could be given the length of time that it's been in development.
I love Poser; I think it's empowered a whole generation of digital artists, and freed many people who have little innate talent, to realise their darkest, or most noble fantasies. However, Poser has always been quirky and the lack of competition has enabled CL to bring out incomplete and sub-standard software safe in the knowledge that people had no choice. The bile that was heaped upon Poser 5 came as a real wake up call to them. They seemed to hold the opinion that they could release whatever they liked, in any state they liked, and people would buy it. However, the negative word spread quicker than they dared fear, and I don't think that they got half the sales they wanted or needed.
Maybe with a strong rival, both products will become all that they can be.
how bout' a plug-in to replace Poser's "old" real-time rendering engine with this tasty OpenGL Goody?
I"m curious to know if there will be a library system that's obnoxiosly sluggish like the one in Poser. I'm really excited by this news though. I agree with matb's comment about CL not having enough competitors to try and push the envelope in revolutionary ideas and changes. Way to go DAZ.
I personally Can not wait...It will revolutionize the Poser world and will give other folks a chance to Develope their own Plugins and The Consumer will be able to pick and choose what Modules/Plugins he or She wants to Install and use,I really hope they make it so folks will be able to UNPLUG a Plugin and install another one without haveing to re-install or have a ton of Modules just clogging up Resources...This will speed up work flow Tremendously....As always B3D
I'm really looking forward to this! I agree with Gringo, this will help poser rather than hurt it in the long run if they step up and continue to develope poser. Hobbiest and the curious and kids can afford Daz Studio and generate even more content and product awareness for both products. For those of us who can't afford or don't know how to or won't use all the features, this is perfect. Modular lets people learn as they go and focus on what they want to do more. I'm also going to mention the platinum club, annual membership $99.00 a year, and selected products at 1.99! The products for $1.99 are actually good products. I think Daz is making this a hobby the general public can afford. Kids can move right into this when they out grow Barbie and action figures. Maybe I'm crazy, or over estimating the general public, but I think this should be a wildly popular program and increase sales all over the community and in doing so make lower prices possible in the future.
YEah, let me know when it is available!!
Sounds Great but one question,,,,,Does anyone know when and where its going to be released? Like others here that are waiting for it we would like to know the release date.
i want to deta test as well ,cant wait to see this package
I'm more of a "wait -N- see" kinda person. I like DAZ but I don't trust them as far as I can throw them. I think they're getting a little "MODULE" crazy over there. Just look at the dif between victoria 2 & 3 - MODULE for this, MODULE for that and on and on it goes - AND they're NOT cheap. Does CL need a kick in the behind and a cold water wake up call??? YES! But is DAZ Studio the answer to the 3D Poser prayers? I dought it. But, as I said I'm a wait-n-see person - I'm open minded and I look forward to giving it a try. Hopefully it will make some of my dreams come true. And if it falls short maybe CL will rise up and release something worthly of our praise.
Beautiful!, just beautiful!

Me too,I'm still from not being able to buy Poser 5 and Bryce 5,too
Looks like a great package. I can't wait to try it out.
I am definately interested and hope a Mac OS
version is released soon .... Still waiting for
a Mac version of Poser 5.... OS 9 or X..... I am
patient but also a bit envious of Windows Users......

Would love to be on the beta testing too count me in please
