DAZ Studio is software produced by DAZ 3D, for 3D art and animation creation and as a rendering tool. This software uses[when?] a 'Genesis' platform with multi-file support and import and export capabilities, compatible with other design and 3D art and animation software solutions. It is available for free, but registration is required.[2] Version 1.0 was released in Fall 2005.[3] Until version 1.7 it was officially known as DAZ|Studio. On February 1, 2012, DAZ 3D Inc. announced it would be giving away DAZ Studio Pro for free.[4]

History and overview[edit]

DAZ Studio is designed to allow users to manipulate "ready to use" models and figures as well as other supporting 3D content. It is aimed at users who are interested in posing human and non-human figures for illustrations and animation.

DAZ 3D follows the "Razor and blades business model" - DAZ Studio is the "razor" free-of-charge core program with the required features for the creation of imagery and animations, while relegating other features to the "blades" add-on 'plug-ins', usually commercial, which the user may add.
