These apps are always good. Always loved Bryce. Only downside is they are a bit of a resource hog. Daz3D for example completely froze my computer for about a minute when I was fiddling around with a few settings on a naked figure. That's on a 2nd Gen i7 laptop with Nvidia graphics. Ok, so it's only 4gb, but seriously?
I always wanted to use Daz3D/Poser animated graphics into a game. Not the actual 3D maybe as it would probably be a bit slow. Make a nice running character then capture the video of it running sideways. Touch the result up, frame by frame, in a paint package. There you go almost instant pain free platformer animated sprite! Cool.
Plus Bryce looks good for cut screen goodness. Get an old PC to render an animation of something (eg. rotating around a mountain), get the video into your game, and there you go a really nice animated backdrop for menus or even the game itself.
