Have you met Michael? Leading 3D software and content company Digital Art Zone (DAZ) introduces the newest version of its 3D male model, Michael 5 for Genesis. Available now, this advanced human model facilitates final renderings that are nearly indistinguishable from photography.
Michael 5 follows the launch of Victoria 5, and employs the same Genesis 3D model platform, providing rigging, contour, and pose adjustments to a single base.
Derived from high-resolution body scans, Michael 5 allows characters with different heads, body shapes, genders, ages and races to be morphed and mixed, providing an unmatched platform for limitless character creation.
High-resolution photo-realistic skin texture maps showcasing irregularities such as pores, freckles, veins, age and muscle striations produce stunning levels of realism.
“With Michael 5 and Genesis, artists can now create almost any 3D figure imaginable,” said DAZ’s CEO, James Thornton. “Combined with DAZ Studio you can create a character, add clothing, hair, environments and animation, and then render or export to your favorite 3D software. Michael 5 is the most realistic, versatile and accurate male 3D model ever.”
Introduced Tuesday, April 24, Michael 5 is priced at $39.95. There are also bundles of clothing, hair, and other add-ons in the DAZ 3D store which range in price from USD $34.97 to $199.97.
Used by digital artists, game developers and animators, the figure is compatible with most 3D software including DAZ Studio, Cinema4D, Maya and Carrara.
