DAZ 3D Debuts Michael 4, a 3D Male

Draper, Utah - The newest version of DAZ 3D's 3D male figure, Michael 4 is designed to enable final renderings that are nearly indistinguishable from photography.

Derived from high-resolution, real-life human photography and body scans which are combined with the fourth-generation unimesh and improved rigging and body contours, Michael 4 offers the most realistic, versatile, and anatomically accurate human male figure available for public use. This latest version of Michael is now available for purchase.

Built to use the same add-on technology as his counterpart Victoria 4, Michael 4 allows characters of different proportions and shapes to be loaded, morphed, and mixed. Michael 4 comes with multiple head shapes to alter age, weight, and ethnicity characteristics, along with high-resolution photo-real skin texture maps showcasing enhanced irregularities, such as pores, freckles, veins, and muscle striations. The added use of DAZ 3D's new high-end Character Setup Tools grant Michael 4 more realistic joint movement while eliminating distortion in each pose.

Available free of charge for all registered DAZ 3D users, Michael 4 is now available for electronic download via the www.DAZ3D.com online store. Corresponding product bundles range in price from $34.97 (reg. price $49.95) to $59.97 (reg. price $99.95) and contain a variety of clothing, hairstyles, skins, heads, and body shapes.
