Instructions for DAZ Studio

Soon, I will have more detailed instructions for using DAZ Studio to create storyboards.


DAZ Studio is free and works with many of the Poser Digital Puppets.

FrameForge 3D Studio is not free and has very few figures to select from (without upgrading.)

However, DAZ Studio is still unfinished and awkward and FrameForge 3D Studio is designed specifically for creating 3D storyboards quickly and efficiently.

Create the image of the actors

First you create the image of the actors. This has an alpha channel which makes the characters visisble but the background invisible. That makes is easy to work with Photoshop or GIMP.

Create the background

Next you create the background in GIMP or Photoshop. Photo to follow.

Sample photo to be put here shortly.

After you add the background and remove the alpha channel, save the image as a PNG file.

Your next step
