Using Linux to run Daz Studio and Poser 3d Graphics.

Hi, just a quick question re the above software.

I would like to be able to use my Daz and Poser software within a Linuz O S .

Are there any Linux programs that would be more suitable than others for this task?

Thank you for any advice you can offer.

Daz appears to run only on Windows and MacOS ( You could try Wine or run them in a Virtual Machine.

I don't have any experience of 3d modeling in anger but Blender is the main 3D modeling program used with Linux.
It looks like you may be able to import Poser/Daz files, see here for a starter...

Check out Blender here.

Does this help?
Exporting in Blender
File Formats

Blender comes packed with import/export support for many different programs.


JPEG, JPEG2000, PNG, TARGA, OpenEXR, DPX, Cineon, Radiance HDR, SGI Iris, TIFF
AVI, MPEG and Quicktime (on OSX).
3D Studio (3DS), COLLADA (DAE), Filmbox (FBX), Autodesk (DXF), Wavefront (OBJ), DirectX (x), Lightwave (LWO), Motion Capture (BVH), SVG, Stanford PLY, STL, VRML, VRML97, X3D.
