    For starting to build 3D models then look at Google for topics using Blender, Autodesk 3DS Max and Autodesk Maya to name a few examples.
  • Why is Smart Content not supported?
    Unfortunately products bought through the Predatron store doesn’t at present support Smart Content within DAZ Studio. This is a decision based on a few factors for instance it is understood that sometimes users prefers to sort content into their own Runtime structure. Also this is often a very labour intensive operation to first implement as you set up the Metadata, especially when there are many files involved, so it was decided that the time saved would be best spent building more content. There are instructions at DAZ3D on more information about setting this up manually if you click here.
