I have been interested in Carrara for quite some time but have not had the money to afford it. It looks like I may be able to buy C8/8.5 Pro in the next couple of months so I thought I should ask about some of its features: specifically dynamic cloth and soft-body dynamics.

1 - Do either C8 Pro or the 8.5 beta have dynamic cloth?
2 - If they do, how does it compare to the dynamic cloth in Daz Studio an Poser?
3 - If they don’t, is there any practical way to do animations with dynamic cloth from other programs, such as importing from Poser or Daz Studio?
4 - What are the soft-body dynamics listed as a feature for C8 Pro?

Yes. Carrara has the ability to open Poser scenes even if they have dynamic cloth.
The soft body physics in Carrara works great for dropping or falling soft bodies, but it is not yet the best answer for dynamic clothes.
