3DF Zephyr free can process only up to 50 images, which should be enough for very simple subjects and to play with the first few tutorials.
You can also use only one NVIDIA card to speed the processing, and exporting/editing functionalities have been limited (for example, you may only export textures in JPG formats, and so on)
and lacks some very important tool (for example, the customized UV mapping tool).
However, 3DF Zephyr Free is not time limited, and you may open any .zep file created in any other 3DF Zephyr versions.
Everything works (both Zephyr and the Masquerade utility) but only on CPU.
It require a 64-bit WINEPREFIX to work and you should configure it to be at least 8.1
You'll need to install at least VC++ redistributable package and probably the DirectX->Vulkan (dxvk)
Tutorial on installation available at here (OUTDATED)
What does not
The CUDA acceleration failed even with the proper element installed on the host and a compatible graphics card.
dxvk seem to report an AMD GPU but it's still detected as my NVIDIA card.
Saw some post about a problem with the cuda support in wine64, but Zephyr can't work with wine32
What was not tested
Remember to use winecfg to use at least API version 8.1
