Daz 3D - Digital Animation and Asset Creation

A great digital animation software designed to be intuitive for someone who is just starting to get into 3D animation. I have used this in the past to create a slap stick comedy short but it’s potential is much greater. This software is actively used by Hollywood artists to create TV shows, concert cinematics, and advertisements. Their is a free and pro version but as of 2/7/12 the pro version  is free along with the plugins Bryce Pro and Hexagon.
