Poser and DAZ Tutorials you shouldn’t miss and some great places to go for help.

I don’t claim to know everything about poser, nor do I assume to be some Poser/Daz expert. This is  probably why you might benefit from my advice if you are just starting out in 3D art.
I have stared blankly at some other artists images for hours thinking to myself. How did they do that? Often I still don’t know the answer but I do know of a few places where you can get some really good advice and tips for cleaning up your Poser/DAZ image so let’s get started shall we?

First up is to me THE best place to get help from other newbies and some old hands at Poser/DAZ studio. This is a place I went ALL the time back when it was on MSNForums, now I never seem to have a lot of time. You absolutely need to check out  Poser For Dummies, these folks not only have been around a long time, they also are more than willing to not just share their image experiences and tips but tips on becoming a vendor, making characters, lighting, postwork and even Hexagon on occasion!
You can find these lovely folks right here
Also, believe it or not Deviant art is a really good place for some great tuts and pointers. Alfaseed (and if you have never heard of Alfaseed(previously Ariesoul and I could be misspelling that you can find their content at has even posted their render settings for poser

There’s glowy postwork for poser-
Video postwork tutorials-
SIlverblades who has lots of different tutorials
DAZ has tutorials-

and if you look around so do SmithMicro and Renderosity
and if you have a problem with Poser and you just can’t figure it out, head over to RDNA there’s always someone over there who is willing to help out!

  1. Thanks for posting these links. I did some animation with Daz and Bryce 5 years ago. I just downloaded Daz Studio 4.5 and Bryce 7 and I was quickly reminded of the problem of dealing with content/files. Can you remind me of the trick for correctly getting shared content to load into the correct folders? I seem to recall that there was one specific unzip utility/setting that would do the trick.
