DAZ 3D Unveils Michael 5, the Most Accurate Male 3D Model Ever

Renowned 3D Figure Offers State-of-the-Art Photorealism, Mapping, Morph and Rigging Technology to 3D Artists

DRAPER, Utah, Apr. 24, 2012, Digital Art Zone (DAZ) today announced the newest version of their popular 3D male model, Michael 5 for Genesis ™. Available now, this advanced human model facilitates final renderings that are nearly indistinguishable from photography. Michael 5 follows the successful launch of Victoria 5, and employs the same award-winning Genesis 3D model platform , providing powerful rigging, contour, and pose adjustments to a single base.

Derived from high-resolution body scans, Michael 5 allows characters with different heads, body shapes, genders, ages and races to be morphed and mixed, providing an unmatched platform for limitless character creation. High-resolution photo-realistic skin texture maps showcasing irregularities such as pores, freckles, veins, age and muscle striations produce stunning levels of realism.

"With Michael 5 and Genesis, artists can now create almost any 3D figure imaginable," said DAZ's CEO, James Thornton. "Combined with DAZ Studio you can create a character, add clothing, hair, environments and animation, and then render or export to your favorite 3D software. Michael 5 is the most realistic, versatile and accurate male 3D model ever."

Pricing and Availability
Michael 5 is available now and priced at $39.95. There are also bundles of clothing, hair, and other add-ons in the DAZ 3D store which range in price from USD $34.97 to $199.97.
