I have a confession. I have gone to the Dark Side (Daz Studio). When they gave the V7 Pro Bundle as a freebie over Black Friday weekend I grabbed it and downloaded Daz Studio to experiment. I have been working with it and find it so much easier than it used to be, but the render times are really long on my anemic system. The three images I posted tonight are some of my first ones. Of course lighting is a problem again and finding things in the Library is a real challenge, but all in all, I am enjoying a lot of the features. My biggest problem is not having access to the gazillion items I’ve amassed in my Poser Library over the years. I know there is a way to get at least some of them into the Daz Library but I haven’t figured it out. I’ve tried to find tutorials and asked in the Forums, but no one understands the profound ignorance I have with the “behind the curtain” works of this program. If any of you have the patience to work at the Moron level of instructions, I would really appreciate a step-by-step lesson in how to import items or runtimes or whatever. I have several things (like SAV’s hair items) that have Daz Friendly materials for but don’t know to transfer them since they are in Poser format (.obj, .cr2, etc.). Hope you enjoy the new images.

Pretty awesome Terri nice work fraid I won't be turning to the dark side I've already spent thousands literally on poser I have many packages I have not even used I think I will happily let others who work Daz do there stuff and I will reap the benefits of there vision which is pretty cool I have other projects to busy myself with Super work my friend well done!!
I'm sending Rey and BB8 over to have a little 'talk' with you.....
It's OK - I play on the Dark Side a bit myself, although Poser is still my go-to for T.N.A. and my bigger projects. I'm a 'Grey Jedi,' so I can play both sides....LOL
If you get the part about getting all your Poser stuff into DS let me know.... I still haven't figured it out - not that I've spent that much time on it..
Anyway, it looks like you've adapted quite well to the Dark Side - this is a lovely render for your First Order......oh, sorry..... I meant first render.
It seems that the "Dark Side" gets brighter every day. At the very least, it certainly gets more and more populous. Wonderful work. And best of luck with the DS-compatible items. I have no idea how to install them in DS, but I hear they can be with a little effort. Keep trying!
First: great image - I think you'll like what DAZ can do. What you can do with your non-DAZ files is have DS do a search on your drives - you'll do this by going to the Content Library tab and click on the tab that is above the Install Tab and have the system search for all your files. After you've done that, you can browse through your stuff.
I worked with Daz Studio from the beginning. However, I also tried Poser before, but after seeing how complicated it is, I let it be again. This render is really great. Do it the way Faemike said, and you'll get access to your Poser content. Very good work, Teri!
As a dweller in the dark, I welcome you, and your first pieces beat mine by light years. I know you will get the hang of the lighting, and finding all the Renderocity things is like digging in the attic for long forgotten gems, but the end results can be awesome.
