*What is the best program for making clothes for Daz3d figures?  I used to do some 3d modeling for work so I have an idea how to modeling though may be a little rusty.  I have Hexagon and 3dsmax, but have no problem buying Carrara is it is that much better.


*Where are some good tutorial on Modeling Daz3d clothes with your suggested software?


*Is there a difference between tutorials for making Poser clothes and Daz3d clothes.

Thanks

For some great information and tutorials, take a look at the DAZ 3D Documentation Center:  I’ve linked to the publishing page here: http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/publishing/start

Best of luck.

I *think* the modeling is the same as it ever was, It’s the rigging for Genesis that’s a whole new ball game.

Littlefox has a nice series of tutorials over on RDNA (commercial products). It’s legacy rigging, but the modeling and UVMapping tuts are still current info. She uses Modo, I think there are other tuts for Hexagon (and probably other programs). Blondie9999 has a tut here on rigging a figure. Don’t know how transferable that it to rigging clothing.
