If you’re coming from zero background in CGI, the learning curve is pretty steep. Although the basic interface is largely intuitive, the deeper you get into the cool options, the more idiosyncratic their location becomes. It feels like it was designed by about seven different teams, with differing ideas of where to locate options.
But the nice thing is that, starting right away, you can make some cool images.
I made these, just messing around and having fun.
They make good desktop wallpaper, and print out pretty nicely.

Daz3d also has some computer animation software — and I really am fascinated by computer animation. I’ve downloaded the free version of their Studio 3. I don’t know if I’ll have time to ever get expert at it…
