Finger controller

A dedicated controller for moving fingers minutely has been made available. By creating the rough shape in simple mode, then moving on to detailed mode, hand shapes can be created quickly

Build your own pose collection

Data you create can be used repeatedly, reducing creation time, by simply dragging pose and body shape icons onto new models.

Manage with fewer controllers

In pursuit of pose creation speed, Design Doll is designed to manage postures with minimal controllers. Minute adjustments can even be made by directly dragging points on the 3D models.

Import external 3D models

With its bone adherence function, Design Doll can link items created with external software to specific parts. No need to go through bothersome processes such as fitting a sword to a hand after deciding on a posture

Synthesize data

Design Doll can create in-between faces and body shapes, by synthesizing the difference between two existing models into one new model. By repeatedly synthesizing, growth process of a character can be created easily

More impact with false perspective function

When using viewing angle adjustments for impact, your degree of freedom within the composition is limited, and the results often don’t feel right. By using Design Doll’s “false perspective function”, you can easily and freely make perspective distortions to attain a natural fit for your artistic vision

  • Specific parts can be emphasized
  • Because the false perspective function uses camera manipulations, there is no need to re-edit the head to body ratio of the model or the pose

Softening tools that help create a hand-made feel

The camera perspective functions of Design Doll are ideal for creating “compositions with a natural, hand-drawn feel” instead of the computer-generated feel of other 3D programs. We know you’ll enjoy this convenient function that brings your compositions closer to the images seen by the naked eye, while maintaining the integrity of your illustrative vision.

  • Real perspectives that can adjust to natural curves
  • Lens perspectives that can reproduce wide-angle and fish-eye lens effects
  • Eye level or camera height display functions

Unlimited usage of a huge volume of poses and models

You can download any poses and models uploaded onto the user website “Doll-Atelier

  • Import your favorite poses from the website with a single click
  • Significantly reduce model creation time by synthesizing pre-set data and creating elements from it
  • Imported poses can be used freely, for commercial or non-commercial applications
