I was a bit disappointed. The book does not go into many details. It is more or less an overview. I was expecting more. However, what is there is explained nicely, and if you follow the instructions, you can have some very nice basic characters.

Dieses Buch ist für DS4Anfänger genau so geeignet wie für Umsteiger von einer älteren Version. Die Funktionen werden gut erklärt, es gibt einen tollen Überblick. Wer also nach Informationen zu DS4 sucht, der kommt hier bestimmt nicht zu kurz. Das Buch bleibt jedoch nicht nur bei DS4 hängen, sondern schneidet auch noch einige andere 3D Programme an, zB auch wenn es um übergreifendes Arbeiten geht. Schade ist, dass diesmal keine CD/DVD mitgeliefert wird um Anfängern einen Einsteig zu bieten (darum auch nur 4 Sterne), aber empfehlenswert ist es durchaus, wenn man sich nicht sowieso schon top auskennt.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I didn't think it's all it's cracked up to be 24. Mai 2012
Von W. Watson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I really wanted to write a favorable review of this book. Let me rephrase that. I really wanted this book to have the useful information and real world examples necessary to be useful enough to make me want to write a favorable review of this book. However, that information just isn't there. Reading this book, I feel like I'm watching an infomercial on DAZ Studio on late night TV. It's a half hour of talking and presenting, but nothing really useful to know.

I've owned Daz Studio --both the free version and the professional version for about two and a half years. During that time, the people at Daz have failed time and again to produce adequate documentation in a followable format for people to learn how to properly use their product. So it was my hope that this book would have bridged some of the knowledge gap. But this book doesn't really come through in doing that. I felt like I was reading a lot of information that's already in the DAZ Wiki. The examples that they do use are the standard examples that come with the software for the most part, which really doesn't help someone. It only touches the surface of its capabilities, without really going into detail about how to apply them to anything other than importing the examples.

For instance:

How do you make a sky in an outdoor Daz scene? How do you light it? How is it different from lighting an indoor room? If you're in an indoor room, how do you get the view from the window to look realistic?

Or how about this? How do you rig a model you created?

What format is best for importing a custom model?

How do you make static objects for your scenes, or how do you import static objects you get from somewhere else?

If you're doing an interior scene, how do you make walls, windows, and doors?

How do you rearrange the content library in order to make it easier for you to locate the files you've purchased or created?

There's a whole chapter on the capabilities of Bryce; but you couldn't use anything in that chapter to construct a useful scene. The meat and potatoes is just not there. The whole book is like that. You're getting just the surface of the water with nothing substantial to work with.

The book tells you you can purchase models. It tells you about the transfer utility and the pose and animate controls, but it doesn't really give you the information a beginner really NEEDS to know in order to become functional in using the software. To me, if you buy a software book, by the time you finish with that book, you should be able to be somewhat proficient in using the software. I'm not saying an expert --because that takes practice. What I'm saying is that you cannot take what's in this book, and put together a scene of your own that isn't rigged with anything other than what the software ships with out of the box.

This book will not give you the basic requisite knowledge it takes to be proficient in using Daz Studio. I really wish it wasn't so, but that's the way that I see it after spending a few days working with this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Introduction to Digital Art 20. Mai 2009
Von J. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've been creating digital art with Daz Studio for just over three years now, and there was always something missing from my renders. Although there are many tutorials online, none of them ever seemed to cover the basics of the program, instead jumping to the advanced parts while assuming you actually know what you're doing. Then I saw this book on here, and decided to buy it. That was possibly the best investment I ever made. Not only does the book help new and experienced Daz users create better art, but it also includes full versions of other commercial Daz programs, as well as model and content packs for the Victoria 4 model. I can't recommend this book enough, and I can't wait for the new Carrara guide book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hard to rate 29. Juni 2009
Von Steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The biggest problem with this book is the title. When you see " The Official Guide to Using DAZ Studio" you may expect an in depth guide to using the software... But that is not what this book is. This book gives a basic overview of the software and a basic overview of art principles relating to 3d art. Neither subject is dealt with in much depth and the content is limited.
The book is nicely formated, the instructions are clear and the images are full color glossy images.
The only other problem with this book is that it is very obviously written as a promotion for the software. There are to many adjectives throughout the book telling how wonderful the software is.
The most amazing thing is the content provided on the CD. If a person was to pay full price for all this software it would easily reach thousands of dollars. Of course as anyone familiar to Daz can tell you they have constant specials for their content so if you waited long enough you may pick up most of this for free or at a low price but as a bundle it is an extremely good deal. Be aware that the publisher neglected to include the serial numbers for the software so you will have to contact Daz with your invoice. And installing all the content can be mind numbingly dull.
So if a person has a desire to start creating 3d "poser" style art this is a very good place to start. An intermediate user would find some value and pickup some content not already in the library. Any one experienced in 3d art would not have much use for this book.
A very good book... if it fits your needs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fine Software for FREE, BIG Savings 31. Juli 2011
Von scorpivs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As of July, 2011, the software included as part of this guide is indeed valid.
Activation requires a phone call to DAZ3D support, and the Product Key is posted
to the user's DAZ3D account, just as any other Keys purchesd through DAZ3D.
This means you must already have an account with DAZ3D to use the software.
It doesn't cost anything to create a DAZ3D account.
These are full versions of the software, not trial.

Carrara 6 Pro (included) is an affordable alternative to such high-end 3D creation and animation programs as Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya. The current version of Carrara is Carrara 8 Pro, which retails for $549. The upgrade from 6 Pro to 8 Pro is $149, so the savings there is almost $300. The learning curve is moderate-advanced.

Hexagon 2.5 (included) is a simpler 3D creation program, often used to create custom
3D objects for use in SecondLife, an internet-based virtual world and social tool.
Hexagon 2.5 allows for creation of more complex 3D constructs than do the tools
offered by SecondLife, and according to SecondLife, uploading 3D mesh will soon be
supported, meaning Hexagon 2.5 will then be able to be used to create custom
characters for upload to SecondLife. Currently, Hexagon 2.5 retails for $149.
It is the current version of this software. The learning curve is average-moderate.

Figures, Characters and Avatars is a good, detailed guide, not a manual. About ½" thick. Worth every penny, except maybe to Autodesk salesmen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not A Guide to the New Daz 4 Studio 2. Mai 2012
Von bunnyrabbit4 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Currently Daz is giving away Daz Studio 4 Pro as well as Bryce and Hexagon on their website. In doing so they are returning to their primary mission of selling models. Studio 4 is a great product, but this book won't help you navigate the features or the new interface, nor will it help you with most of the new figures or plugins. This is more of an ad for what the product can do, IF you know how to use it. Hopefully they (or someone) will issue a comprehensive manual soon. Daz has invested a lot of time and money into its very versatile Genesis figure line which only works in Studio and has extensive features you will not learn about in this book. At this time your best reference to Studio is a group of tutorial films they've put on youtube. While these videos cover individual aspects of the program, not having a book that can be easily referenced for details is VERY frustrating. It means that you have stop what you are doing and find a video every time you want to use another feature. At least the videos go into more depth than this book does, but neither is likely to address exactly what you want to do. I'll post back if they put out a book that is more useful. At the moment there is nothing else out there.
