Easiest Mac software for posing 3D character models?

#1 Post by Rainvillain » Wed Aug 30, 2017 10:55 am

Hi,

I'm hoping to incorporate some basic, low poly silhouettes of 3D character models into VN's background shots.
I have zero experience with any sort of 3D modelling so I'm hoping to purchase/commission a few simple 3D models, which I would then superimpose and pose on my existing BGs, and then essentially export this shot as a PNG. OK, the whole process has several more steps, but that's the gist of what I'm doing.

My problem is I've never purchased/commissioned rigged, low poly character models before and I'm not too sure how to proceed. Specifically, I would need the assets to be rigged and for me to be able to open them in software that runs on Mac so that I could then pose them and create 2D art out of them.

Is there specific software that works on Mac and is relatively easy to use as far as: importing 3D models, posing them, exporting them as PNGs?
Thanks

get blender, you can download it through site or you can get it VIA steam (and its FREE).
the video above is a guide how to export 3D image as a 2D image (PNG)/
you can commish artist to make a 3D character for you, AND you can get them to rig it, or just go to mixamo.com for an automated easy rigging (5 minutes at most)

DAZ Studio is free and will do everything you need (and a lot more).
https://www.daz3d.com/
It comes with rigged models that you can easily pose and it renders pngs with transparent backgrounds by default.
