    • 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
