Product Description

Dive Into The World Of Digital Art & 3D Animation!

Poser 10 provides the world's easiest way to create captivating digital art and animation with 3D characters. Poser comes with 5GB of ready-to-pose humans, animals, props, 3D scene elements, textures and cameras & lights. Characters can be customised using facial photographs; you can even add dynamic hair and clothing to bring them to life. Animate and render scenes into photorealistic images and video for web, print and film projects.

Poser 10 is the perfect tool for beginners in 3D animation, graphic artists and illustrators. From comic books and animated shorts to architectural and industrial design, Poser 10 adds character.

Create Character Art & Animation In 3 Easy Steps:-
  1. Add 3D Characters & Dress The Stage
    Add 3D people and characters straight from the library. Customise those characters using facial photographs; even add dynamic hair and clothing. Build a 3D scene on Poser's virtual stage with props and backgrounds. Then arrange your lighting and cameras.
  2. Pose & Animate
    Pose your figures joint by joint. Automatically generate walking and running animations or talking characters. You can even import motion capture files for more action.
  3. Polish & Render
    Animate your lights and cameras to tell the perfect story, then render scenes into photorealistic images or videos for web, print and film projects.

New Content for Poser 10

New User Interface

Poser's new clean and easy user interface presents all the tools you will need in a concise layout that takes full advantage of various screen resolutions. The interface layout provides a clean work environment so you the artist can focus on the project in hand. All controls are contained in floating palettes that can be docked for consistency, session to session, or floated to free up space.

New Pixar Subdivision Surfaces

We've integrated Pixar's OpenSubdiv library to provide Pixar Subdivision Surfaces, with user definable subdivision levels per prop, figure or even individual body part. Subdivision improves bending fidelity, smooths polygonal surfaces and improves performance by enabling lighter poly-count content. Poser includes a new Unimesh skinning method to support subdivision on figures with compliant geometry.

Rendering Speed Improvements

The Firefly render engine has been optimised for faster performance when Raytracing.

New Bullet Physics

Bullet Physics simulates Rigid Body dynamics, Soft Body dynamics, and dynamic strand based hair. Create rigid simulations with constraints to build complex mechanical interactions. Paint softbody constraint weights to animate. Add jiggle and bounce to any prop or character. Use the Live Simulation mode to preview dynamics in real-time, or calculate simulations to include in rendered animations.

New Comic Book Preview Mode

Use Poser's exciting new Colour and B&W Comic Book Preview for static or animated toon imagery. This feature will enable you to create comic art with fantastic line control and colour, or clean black and white outlines with persistent shading even when rotating or animating your point of view.

New 9 New Human & Cartoon Figures

Also included are two new humans utilising magnets with weight maps and polygonal detailing optimised for SubD. Seven new 3D cartoon figures with incredible facial expressions and personality, worthy of an on-screen cameo in Hollywood, are also part of the included content.

New Magnet & Deformer Weight Map Support

Poser's Magnets and Deformers have always been a powerful tool for modifying and animating figures and props. Now with Weight Maps, deformers are even more useful with extraordinary vertex level precision.

New Magnet & Deformer Weight Map Painting Tools

Control the power of Poser's new Magnet and Deformer Weight Maps with painting tools that enable vertex by vertex editing. With the added precision of Weight Maps, deformers can be subtly edited to create brilliant content.

New Gamma Correction

Gamma Correction is now in both Poser 10 and Pro 2014 so gamma controlled content can be developed and delivered to every Poser user, supporting uniform materials across versions.

And so much more...

Key Feature Content:-

Over 5GB of Poser Content

Poser includes a complete collection of well organised, easy to find content supplied by talented third-party content artists, as well as created by the Smith Micro team of 3D artists. Fully articulated human skeletons that match the male and female figures body topology are included along with artist manikins, animals, dinosaurs, a dragon, robots, vehicles and toy & cartoon characters; over 140 ready-to-pose figures in total. Various new poses, animations, light sets, props and access ories top help you get started are included in the Poser content installers.

Content Management Library

Poser's library makes accessing content easy and accurate, presenting all content by category with expanding previews and providing additional data for each content item. The keyword search function makes finding content fast and category lists can be scrolled through with cursor keys for convenience. Content items can be loaded into a scene using the traditional Poser UI controls or can be dragged directly from the library into the scene.

Full Scene Category in Library

Add your perfect scene environment with settings, lights, cameras, props, dependencies and render settings into the library. From there your new scenes can be dragged directly from the library into the Poser workspace.

Multi-select Drag-and-Drop from Library

Select several items of clothing from the library and drag them right onto a figure and auto-conform them in one step. You can even multi-select a hairstyle, several clothing items and a pose all at once, then click and drag them right onto your target figure.

Expanded Context Menus

Poser's expanded Context Menus will vastly improve interaction and scene creation, and changes the way you work with Poser forever. Six unique Context Menus have been developed for Figures, Actors, Objects, Lights, Cameras and Backgrounds to provide quick access to the lost useful menu operations.

Grouping Objects

Need a way to move, scale or hide a bunch of objects in a Poser scene, at the same time? Now you can simply add any number of scene elements, from figures and props to lights, into a Grouping Object. They can be moved, rotated, scaled and animated or even hidden and revealed. Create multiple Grouping Objects to hold different areas of a scene, or related props and figures. Adding selected scene elements into any Grouping Object is easy using our powerful new Context Menu controls. This significant new feature will change how you manage your scenes, providing you plenty of control over whole groups of objects in that scene.

Constraint Channels & Constraint Objects

For our animators that have been looking for a way to animate a ball being throw or caught, we've introduced Constraint Channels and Objects. Basically, the Constraint is an animatable handle for an object that will allow you to parent it to a figure's hand as it winds up for the throw, and then have the object leave the hand and fly through the air as if it's being thrown. Constraints are a simple to use feature that will permit all kinds of cool animation effects.

Frame Object Camera

In complex scenes it can be a little challenging to keep your camera focused on an area that you're working on using Poser's original camera controls. To help out, we've introduced the Frame Object Camera. With the click of a button, your current camera will zoom in on the selected object, allowing you to take a closer look exactly where you're working. This will make it easier to navigate in and out of your deep scenes and help you save time when creating them.

Rotate Object Mode

A companion feature to the new Frame Object Camera, Poser also includes a new Rotate Object mode. Simply toggle on the Rotate Object mode and your current camera will rotate around the centre point of the currently selected object. This makes it even to focus on a selected element, and view it from every direction by spinning Camera trackball.

Normal Mapping

Normal Mapping is a resource-efficient technique to add the appearance of complexity and surface detail to 3D objects. It can transform object surfaces, making them appear more intricate than they actually are, without the added overhead of polygonal detail. This will save designers valuable time and offers increased creative flexibility by allowing faster and more light-weight computation of rendered detail.

Weight Map Rigging

High-end professional 3D applications like Max and Maya have set the standard for Weight Map Rigging, and now Poser provides the most open vertex Weight Mapping support available to Poser users today. Weight Map Rigging offers several benefits including smoother bending folds and bulges with vertex by vertex control over every bend or bulge. Weight Maps can be added to any joint bend, to twist and scaling channels and can be used to control bulges. Plus, Poser takes the standard of Weight Map Rigging several steps further with support for Hybrid Joint Rigging (combining traditional Poser Sphere/Capsule Zones with Weight Maps), using either single mesh geometry or traditionally grouped geometry, and enables Weight Maps or zones to affect any number of body parts beyond the current joint. Poser's new Weight Map Rigging provides a platform that will support third party figures that use Weight Mapping, by expanding the open, well documented and easily editable Poser PZ3 file format, to encourage creativity and user driven enhancements to Poser figures.

Real-time OpenGL Scene Preview

With Poser OpenGL improvements, you'll see accurate, real-time previews of Spot, Point, Infinite and IBL (Image Based Lights) Lights, Soft Shadows, with Ambient Occlusion, Normal Maps and Back Facing Polygons in a Gamma Corrected scene. The Light Properties control allows you to toggle specific lights to preview in the scene, with accumulated brightness for each selected light. MIP Map support improves performance when previewing large textures. Our OpenGL hardware improvements preview textures more efficiently, with reliable onscreen display of lights, shadows and colour, for smarter interactive scene creation.

Subsurface Scattering

Skin, wax and marble are just some of the materials that are translucent when struck by light. To recreate this subtle yet crucial effect when rendering these materials in Poser, we've incorporated a set of easy to configure SubSurface Scattering Material Nodes. New Nodes include SubSurface Skin, Fast Scatter, and basic Scatter. The Scatter Node includes a number of optimised pre-sets for Skin, Marble, Milk, Fruit and Vegetables. With Poser's new SubSurface Materials, you'll transform your scenes into rendered masterpieces with lifelike translucent surfaces.

Cross Body Part Morph Creation

With Poser comes a significant improvement in the current Morphing Tool. Now you can dial in a Morph Brush and paint morphs across body parts. Save that set of individual body part morphs as a single Full Body Morph channel in the figure's Parameters. Easily create effects such as muscle bulges, scales, bumps, horns, veins or wounds; it's only limited by the imagination of the artist.

Morph Tool Tablet Support

Poser now comes with Wacom tablet support into the Morph Tool so you can have much finer control when creating morphs. This has made the Morph Tool even more powerful and precise.

Python 2.7 Support

Poser now supports Python 2.7 to help take advantage of improvements to the scripting language.

Why 2D & 3D Artists Use Poser:-
  • Any 2D or 3D graphics professional or enthusiast can create remarkable character-based digital imagery.

  • "Fantastic reviews:-

    "I said it before and I'll it again. The best version of Poser, yet! Poser 10 and Pro 2014 is just packed with such great new features that it has made me want to redo everything I have ever made. My content development will never be the same again." - Redspark

    "I have been using Poser since version 2 and I don't think that there has ever been such a significant and exciting leap in the technology between versions. I am just blown away by all of the new features and capabilities. I cannot wait to get deep into these new features!" - Anna / Secretheart

    "Each new version is really starting to add features that I once only dreamed of...but now they are here! Bullet physics, soft body dynamics, and ray-trace previews! I used to have to pull levers "behind the curtain" to make special things happen...now they are integrated into Poser! woot!" - DarkEdge Designs

I have been using poser from its earliest times in the 1990s. this newest version I find very very confusing. It will do some good renders but there does not seem to be any logic to its controls or layout, at least you would think they could get X Y Z in the right order.

I upgraded from Poser 7 and this does seem an improvement - better tools, faster and better quality rendering, excellent preview, so I'm generally pleased with the purchase - which was cheaper than buying from Smith Micro's web site. Several bugbears though. I have some third party add ons that worked fine in Poser 7 but which don't work at all in this - it appears the Python is different - so that's a bit of a bummer. And the human figures that come with it are still way short of DAZ3D - the picture on the box is not going to be created without some tweaking. Another is arranging the screen - fixing a palette out of the way of the preview screen is fiddly.

Finally moved up to Poser 10 from Poser Artist 4, lots of new learning to do, but if it's even half as good as the old versions then I'm, looking forward to some amazing results. Glad that I bought Poser Debut in between, it was a great guide for what what to come from the later versions. Was delivered on time in minimal packaging, no complaints at all.

As a Daz Studio user, I had only tried Poser in a cut down version a few years ago. I found it too hard then and turned to Daz which I found easier to learn as a novice. I am pleased to say that this time around I found it a bit easier although the camera and view commands are a bit clunky compared to Daz. I am looking forward to having the time to spend in the clothroom, faceroom etc., and love the sketch render option. Lights are nice and easy to play around with and I'm pleased with the first render I've got out of it. Render speed was pleasingly fast, better than expected, although I have to say it was a simple scene. Not sure how easy it would be for a complete novice to learn though and you do need a decently powered pc to get decent performance.

Couldn't have asked for more from the vendor, item is exactly as described and at an excellent price.
