Alternatives to MakeHuman for Mac with any license

  • Blender

    Blender is the free open source 3D content creation suite, available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.

    • Blender's MB Lab plugin was created by one of Makehuman's development team. The plugin is much more powerful and intuitive when it comes to fine tuning facial features and musculature. It also provides realistic skin textures and subsurface scattering allowing for photo realistic imagery. GoldPhoenixDec 2019 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Though Blender is the great professional program you may want to learn next, it's not dedicated to human modeling and possibly too difficult to mere beginners. Guest • Sep 2019 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • MakeHuman Makes human models, Blender does not. Guest • Jun 2019 • 4 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Its a 3d program to create things from scratch. tvgoing1Mar 2018 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Makehuman is for generating human meshes from user set variables, almost always with the intent of importing into another program. Blender is a full 3D modelling/rendering program, but has no human generation features. Guest • Jun 2016 • 15 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Blender is a broad superset, very good program, but it's not going to replace makehuman for anyone that wanted makehuman like functionality. The plugin that is available to Blender that is similar should be listed separately, anything else would be misleading. Guest • Feb 2018 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The author of MakeHuman has created a plugin for Blender that allows complete generation and customization of a great range of models. I would go so far as to say that the Blender plugin basically obviates the need for MakeHuman. stevethompsonMar 2017 • 9 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because Blender doesn't allow you to modify human body as Make Human, Blender in fact is used to make any model from scratch Guest • Oct 2017 • 3 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Blender is not a character creator Guest • Sep 2015 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

Now a community driven project on github available for Blender till 2.79 and from 2.80

    • ManuelbastioniLAB was made by one of the same developers after their time on MakeHuman. Unlike the external MH, MbL functions as a plugin within blender and might be considered a spiritual successor.
