This is the list of free software that is usable with (or during) the 3D-art creation process. When we get enough entries in a particular group, we'll create a sub-page for the group, the way we have with Scripts.

Utility Software

CR2 Editor 1.51 or
Eye & Jaw Morph Fixer for Face Morphs
The Eye & Jaw Morph Fixer will correct warped morphs exported from tools such as FaceGen Artist or HeadShop for Daz Studio 4.x. Tools like FaceGen Artist or HeadShop can create realistic face morphs, but they may warp the eyes, jaw, and tongue in the process. This tool will zero out the morph deltas for the eyes, jaw, and tongue, so they are no longer warped. The tool also keeps the original scale and centers of each eye. This tool is free! (Windows 32/64-bit)
Full Body Morph Fixer
The Full Body Morph Fixer is a morph reset tool that can reset specific parts of a morph back to its original shape. More specifically, this tool can reset specific parts of a morph, either assigned by poly group or by poly material, by zeroing out their morph vertex deltas. Now works with other types of base characters, such as animals. Made for Daz Studio 4.x.
Geometry Stripper (Windows Application)
pulls geometry out of a PP2 file, saves geometry as an OBJ file (or a set of OBJ files), and puts pointers to the OBJs in the PP2s.
Windows software - batch image format converter
MC6/MT5 to PZ2 Batch Converter
Morph Manager 4 or
OBJAction Mover
Used for many older file encodings, especially against Poser 4 content OBJs. Limited to OBJ morphs only. or
Objaction Scaler 3c
Objaction Scaler is a Windows tool which facilitates the transfer of .obj files between Poser and other 3D packages such as Studio Max and RDS5. Objects within Poser are much smaller than in other 3D packages, by a factor of around a thousand or so. This can lead to problems either with minuscule objects in Max and RDS5, or brobdingnagian objects in Poser. In either case bizarre results can arise when editing or manipulating the objects. The use of Objaction to either reduce or enlarge the object prior to transfer eliminates these problems.
POINT FACE for Windows
Point Face for Windows an app that we stopped development on, but believe might come in handy for modelers. Point Face is an OBJect File Analyzer that will show you the following: 1) Number of Vertices, Edges, and Faces; 2). Number of Tri's and Quad's; 3) Number of Normals and Textures; and 4) List of Object, Group, and Material entries.
PoserPorter Import Export Utility
Windows software - content installer/exporter
RSR to PNG Converter
Windows software - Converts RSR images in older freebies (and other products) to PNG images so they may be previewed in the library pane. Not necessary with Poser 8 or earlier, as they convert RSR automatically when the library folder is opened.
RTEncoderPy for Mac

Content Converters

Software that converts 3D models between various File Formats, or converts 3D model add-ons between various figures.

Autodesk FBX Converter
Model format-conversion software. Converts OBJ, DXF, DAE, and 3DS to or from FBX.
MC6/MT5 to PZ2 Batch Converter
Model format-conversion software. Import: PLY, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, PTX, V3D, PTS, APTS, XYZ, GTS, TRI, ASC, X3D, X3DV, VRML, ALN - Export:PLY, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, VRML, DXF, GTS, U3D, IDTF, X3D
Model format-conversion software. Imports Wavefront (OBJ & MTL), 3D studio (3DS), LightWave (LWO), AutoCAD (DXF), POV-Ray 3.X mesh or mesh2, VRML (WRL, GZ), and Raw Triangle (RAW); exports Wavefront (OBJ & MTL) and many formats not directly usable by Poser or Daz Studio.

Rendering Software

Postwork Software

FotoSketcher is a freeware program to turn photos (or renders) to paintings (landscapes, architecture, portraits, etc.) automatically. Over 20 different styles are available from pencil sketches to watercolor or oil paintings, pen & ink drawings and cartoons. Available in 32bit and 64bit versions.
The GNU Image Manipulation Program is a freeware image-modification program, very useful for postwork.
