Daz 3D has announced the availability of its new DAZ Studio 4 Advanced and DAZ Studio 4 Pro 3D figure platforms. The new 3D posing platforms for human 3D software models features a new patent pending TriAxTM weight map system and a new open file format that is lightweight, simple to edit and easy to transfer.

64-bit support is now standard with Advanced on both Mac and Windows platforms, including 64-bit for dynamic clothing support.
Studio 4 Pro features the FBX Exporter, 3D Bridge to Photoshop and the GoZ Bridge to send your models over to Zbrush for further editing and creation work. The Content Creator Tools are for advanced professional users and will save the pro user man-years of development tim. The toolset includes:
