I’m brand new. Why Poser instead of DAZ Studio?

What are the advantages of using Poser? And is there a trial version?

Well I do tooning in poser, (and every now and then I use dynamic clothes and when I need them I really need them, for certain scenes in my graphic novel.)
I find the tooning easiest and best in poser.  And I have a ton of poser content so I would not like to have to modify my lights, and scenes and textures for DS.
I find poser easy to use.
I like poser a lot.
I have tried DS and if my figures would work equally well in both without jumping through hoops, I would use both, but it is not good me having a nice character in DS that would not work well in poser so for that reason I don’t use DS at the moment.

Nope, DS4 has this:

http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/software/dazstudio/4/userguide/start

and that is pretty much it. 

As far as the OP’s question - can’t really answer that here - doing a point-by-point comparison between DS4 and Poser 9/2012 is considered an “unreasoned criticism” and/or “attempting to provoke a “site” or “app” war,” as per the TOS.

Poser 9/2012 does some things better than DS4.

DS4 does some things better than Poser 9/2012.

There is no reason that you can’t work both products into your workflow - it certainly doesn’t have to be an either/or situation.

I would have kept both in my work flow but I didn’t want a character in DS that couldn’t equally be used easily in the poser.
