Daz Studio 4.9 has been released today. Daz Studio 4.9 features an integrated content store so you can directly manage your free and purchased Daz content. Downloading and installing content has never been easier! Daz Studio 4.9 offers improved workflows for using content with the Smart Content Pane. Daz Studio is free and includes the fully-posable base human figure content. NVidia’s IRay physically-based renderer is still included and has been updated for this release. IRay is a great way to explore physically-based rendering, all the way down to authoring NVidia material definition language files and directly consuming them with Shader Mixer in Daz Studio. For graphics programmers and graphics researchers this is a wonderful way to explore the power of MDL with a great rendering engine and great content.
