For rendering 3D-pictures and figures we can use Poser, Daz Studio, or Carrara. Poser is the oldest and most mature. However, Daz Studio has many features and new add-ons that are not available on Poser. In addition, it is free. Carrara has some great environment effects and some cool tools such as vertex editing. We consider which one to use for our computer generated pictures.
We consider how to add our Poser and Daz Studio Runtime directories into Carrara. This will allow us to access the same models on Carrara as on Poser and Daz Studio.
