DAZ 3D has released two new editions of DAZ Studio 4, its figure posing and animation software, aimed at power users and content creators. Both DAZ Studio 4 Advanced and DAZ Studio 4 Pro build on the new Genesis figure system introduced in the standard edition of the software, released earlier this year.
DAZ Studio 4 Advanced adds support for multi-layer and progressive rendering to the other render features built into the previous Advanced edition of the sofware (GI, AO, subsurface scattering, and so on), and is 64-bit compatible on both Windows and Mac OS X.
It also includes the Auto-Fit tool for adjusting clothing from one stock figure to another, originally released as a paid add-on to the standard edition of the software.
DAZ Studio 4 Pro is a new edition of the software aimed specifically at artists creating content for sale, and includes a range of rigging and weight-painting tools, along with import/export tools to other key applications (GoZ for ZBrush, 3D Bridge for Photoshop, an FBX exporter) and a Texture Atlas for games work.
DAZ Studio 4 Advanced is priced at $229.95. The Pro edition costs $429.95.
