2 The Basics > DAZ Studio Basics

DAZ Studio Basics

DAZ Studio takes a different approach to creating art. Instead of drawing and painting like in Photoshop, or building 3D objects like Maya, 3ds Max, and others, DAZ Studio is more like a virtual photography studio. In DAZ Studio, the artist uses existing 3D models to create art. The program also allows the artist to modify 3D models resulting in almost limitless possibilities.

In DAZ Studio, the workflow generally goes as follows:

1. Load a scene file. A scene is a 3D file that contains an environment. For example, a scene might be a city park, a beach, or even a room.

2. Load characters and props. Characters and props are 3D models that are used to populate a scene. For example, characters can be humans, robots, animals, or any other creature. Props are objects like furniture, cars, and buildings. Props can also be objects like guns, backpacks, and cell phones.
