Alternatives to Poser for all platforms with any license

  • MakeHuman

    MakeHuman is a free, open source, interactive modelling tool for creating custom 3D human characters. These characters can be modeled in minutes and can then be used with many other modelling and rendering programs to incorporate realistic human figures into computer generated images and animations. Features that make this software unique include the tetra-parametric GUI© and the Natural Pose System©, for advanced muscular simulation.

    • No posing or perspective view. It's just for generating human models quickly for use in other software. Guest • Feb 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Not intended for figure, manipulation, or scene setup and rendering. Only for figure creation and rigging, this is more similar to Blender than Poser, but Blender is perhaps the most powerful free 3D "creation" software. Guest • May 2018 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Have some issues with some posing. However, open source makes it possible to customize some features. Open source also makes it possible to contribute to the code, to make it better. It has a small size compared to #2 DAZ, and doesn't require a supercomputer to render your scene. I use MakeHuman and DAZ 3D alot, but going from DAZ to makehuman, because makehuman works flawlessly on Linux as well. grynnanOct 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Not for custom posing, no perspective viewing of the model Guest • Jul 2018 • 2 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • You can't actually POSE in this program. It only has a few built-in poses, which you can't edit. Guest • Jan 2018 • 8 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's extremely rudimentary in comparison. Guest • Aug 2017 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • DAZ 3D

    Unlike most 3D software, where 3D objects are usually created from scratch, DAZ Studio is designed to allow users to manipulate "ready to use" models and figures. It is aimed at users who are interested in posing human figures for illustrations and animation, but who may be daunted by more technical 3D and CAD software. It was created by DAZ Productions, the company that creates the built-in content for Poser 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 as a direct alternative to Poser.

    • A much more modern interface that is customizable so you can assign keyboard shortcuts and mouse buttons to match those of other programs in your pipeline Guest • Jul 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
