      Blender vs DAZ 3D opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Blender is still a legitimate alternative to DAZ 3D, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Blender is a full 3D program to create things from scratch, whereas DAZ is mainly to adjust premade models.

      Too many steps to get the same results you can get in DAZ with just a few clicks. Blender has a steep learning curve and is not straight forward enough.

      MakeHuman vs DAZ 3D opinions
      Most users think MakeHuman is a great alternative to DAZ 3D.
      Similar functionality for morphing, posing, and dressing human figures. Less ready-made content, but that's offset by the fact that it's free. Pairs well with Blender which is also free.

    4. Sensei Format & the Blender Crash Course were created with each other in mind (blendersensei.com/blender-crash-course). The idea being, make Blender easier to learn and use.
