$830 worth of software for free?? 0.o

I don't do any art... but I might now have to look into starting.

vote-for9vote-against

There's also a ton of free plugins in their store. I thought I would just find something to use the voucher on before they come to their senses, but there's pages of free stuff as well.

So... why are they giving away all of this stuff for free?

vote-for3vote-against

I got a 30% discount for my first purchase.

vote-for5vote-against

@mlutz3: To get more exposure for their software and products. Also, because they are just plain AWESOME!

My 4 year old is gonna be the best artist in history after mastering this software! :)

vote-for6vote-against

@mlutz3: DAZ makes most of its money by selling the 3D content that the software uses for rendering. D|S and Bryce periodically get offered for free, as do some of their basic 3D models--not familiar with Hexagon.

Good fun for anyone wanting to fool around with professional-grade digital art tools.

Has anyone else been waiting a long time for an email confirmation to verify your account?

vote-for2vote-against

@joshwaa Make sure your email program didn't filter the message out. Check junk mail and trash. Maybe it's there. This sure is a good deal. I grabbed a few of the free plugins and manuals as well. Great post!!!

vote-for3vote-against

@sparky1991 It depends on your computer and what it's running. If your machine can process 64-bit then that's what you should download.

vote-for-2vote-against

I was going to look at this but then I noticed that all the users saying how great this is have white triangles next to their names and have never commented on anything else.
Looks like a bit of self promotion to me.

vote-for0vote-against

Would be a great deal if they ever send me a confirmation e-mail. Also the "contact us" page is a broken link.

vote-for1vote-against

great... guess I can expect a lot of new junk mail tomorrow... and I'll bet not one will be a confirmation e-mail. Like they say; if it appears to good to be true... ahh you know the rest.

vote-for-2vote-against

@blamzu: your right, it IS unbelievable... because it's not true!

vote-for3vote-against

@webran: I received the confirmation e-mails with license keys. Downloaded without issue and just installed DAZ Studio.

vote-for2vote-against

Just got this the other day, but havnt tried it yet.

I went searching for more info about the software, and apparently, one of the reviews I was reading up on said that the guy was using a netbook to run the software. So if a netbook can run it, most midrange computers should handle this stuff fine.

vote-for2vote-against

@cvedder: how long did it take? it's been a couple of hours and still nothing.

vote-for1vote-against

I got all of them.. downloading now. Seems legit so far.

vote-for7vote-against

I've been using Daz Studio and Bryce for a long time and already owned the versions that are being offered free this month, but I passed along the news to friends who otherwise couldn't have afforded to get the software. I never have any problems with receiving email, but there are a few email domains that I've seen complaints about in the daz forums for receiving Daz3D mail... Yahoo was one as I recall and possibly Hotmail. For some reason the mail wasn't even getting through to spam. I use gmail myself and like I said I have never had a problem. Believe me... this offer isn't too good to be true... It's well worth it. And if some folks commented to "self promote," so what... :D They should be proud to do it.

vote-for1vote-against

I'm pretty sure I signed up for this the last time they were on here and they pretty had a crazy EULA and TOS and I stopped the uninstall and deleted it.

vote-for1vote-against

Used my AOL junk account to sign up and am yet to receive any e-mail.
Used my GMAIL junk account to sign up and immediately received e-mail.

@wingnut99: One of the first white triangle posters joined in 2006.

I was a white triangle who avidly used deal.woot for deal searching for at least a year before becoming addicted to the other aspects of it. They probably felt it was a really good deal, and if it's free what is wrong with the self promotion?

vote-for3vote-against

So this is only free for a month, then it's locked? Or it's available to be downloaded for one month, free of charge?

vote-for1vote-against

If you don't get the email with serial numbers, they are listed in your account tab. I may only get limited use of this, but FREE! trumps any hesitation.

vote-for3vote-against

@ kirika Once you've bought them... They're yours... The serial numbers are stored in your account and your products are available for download indefinitely... When the initial download time expires, you can go to your available purchase history and reset your products for download again. There is a limit to how often within a certain period of time. I can't remember the exact limits, but if something happens (internet issues breaking your downloads, etc.) and you find yourself running out of download tries, Daz support is really agreeable about resetting for you if you contact them.

vote-for3vote-against

Don't know that I'll ever have a use, but hell! Why not? Just used a 10minutemail.com throw-away addy so I don't have to worry about the spam. Sent this to my two animator friends too.

vote-for2vote-against

@djenkins1982: I'm not sure what you mean when you say "pretty crazy EULA and TOS" (BTW, small typo; should be "had a pretty", not "pretty had a"), or why you "stopped the uninstall" after reading them. I read through both License Agreements, and it was pretty standard stuff, except for one odd clause in the first License Agreement:

Apparently Daz3D constitutes "tellware", and I am legally obligated to tell two people about it. BTW, since I assume at least two people will read this, I could count this as telling two people about it, but I plan to tell at least three tomorrow, so I don't care.

vote-for3vote-against

Oh, and BTW, Daz3d IS Mac OSX Lion compatible, but Bryce 7 and Hexagon 2.5 ARE NOT! They WILL NOT work on Mac OSX Lion.

vote-for2vote-against

Those guys at Daz are just crazy... but I love them
Happy customer of 5 years

vote-for1vote-against

@wingnut99: Not true. This is an amazing deal. Even if you don't like to deal with Daz 3d Content, Hexagon is a first class 3d editing software.

@mlutz3: Because Autodesk still reigns supreme lol

LONG LIVE MAYA!

i signed up with both yahoo (yesterday and still didn't receive anything) and now today with gmail. Haven't received anything through gmail yet either so here's hoping.

vote-for1vote-against

Takes a while to get the email. Just got mine today from sign up yesterday

vote-for-1vote-against

@jameseperyjr: Weird, I received my confirmation email in less than 30 seconds.

vote-for2vote-against

@whodisis: Out of the 6 people I know that have now gotten this the run down on e-mails is like this (note all of them ended up using gmail but some tried other accounts first which is why there is more then 6)

AOL of 2 people it took 36-48 hours for e-mail to arrive
Ymail of 5 people e-mails took 12-48 hours to arrive
MSN of 2 people e-mails haven't arrived yet
Gmail 5 people e-mails arrived instantly (less than 1 minute)
Gmail 1 person e-mails arrived 1-3 hours later

vote-for1vote-against

Got the email in under 1 min via gmail, checkedout w.o needing billing address or cc info. used spam email :)

@robbedtheclint: Both codes work apparently. I've got $10 dollars in my account now.

FBX Plug-in for DAZ Studio & a bunch of other plug-ins are also currently free. From the store tab click 'all products & promotions' & on price-range select $0 - $4.99 then sort from lowest price to highest

vote-for1vote-against

@wingnut99 You were most definitely unfairly thumbed down
I've never really found much use for the ranking triangles but that is certainly helpful.

Also, I too am experiencing slow conformation emailitis (using yahoo)
