5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but not for complete beginners
This book is not for complete beginners and will not show you how to make your own models if that is what you are looking for.
It also requires some familiarity with the Poser program itself.
Once you have a basic understanding of Poser, have tried to make your own models work in Poser and run into the many problems the process often entails, then this IS the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I was very disappointed with this book. It is OK for all those who have already made figures and require further information but very little use for those starting out. I would like to have had a worked example to follow through and had explanation of the pit falls that may be encountered - this is what I expected but......

It is an invaluable source of information on the source of figure creation.
The trouble shooting section in particular has been written with a sense of humour which made me laugh out loud.
Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloodsong's New Book, 10 Sep 2003
By 
Dr N J Pickering (Malmesbury, Wiltshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Secrets of Figure Creation with Poser 5 (Paperback)
Many seasoned Poser user's will know LB Render as 'Bloodsong'_ her forum handle. Despite the title, users of ealier versions of Poser (4.03 through Pro_Pack) will find this volume immensely helpful. This excellent handbook takes one in to areas that the manual doesn't even touch on such as a detailed description of the purpose of the various lines of text based code that make up poser library files. The superb central chapter gives cutting edge advice about Poser content creation. One of the most useful chapters for me was the troubleshooting chapter that gives an in depth insight in to the many things that can go wrong when creating Poser content_ sort of an off-line help forum..fantastic!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of time, 26 Oct 2005
This review is from: Secrets of Figure Creation with Poser 5 (Paperback)
To be brutal, if you're very new to figure creation then this book may well just confuse you and if you've already dabbled with figures then this book is nothing new. All the information can be found online, usually in more detail.
This book lacks any cohesion, and if you're looking for answers you'll be hard pressed to find any in this book.
My advice is to learn figure modelling, practice joint parameters and morphs until they give you a headache (this book only skips through them), if you can't find the information online then ask questions in the poser forums and most importantly Don't bother buying this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let it's age put you off, 21 Feb 2011
This review is from: Secrets of Figure Creation with Poser 5 (Paperback)
This really is the 'Secrets of Figure Creation', because you will have great difficulty finding this information anywhere else. If you want to rig a figure you have created yourself, then this book goes a long way towards taking the mystery out of the Setup Room in Poser.

Most of the information still applies, although this book was written with Poser 5 in mind. It is still the best book of it's kind available today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book, 16 Sep 2010
This review is from: Secrets of Figure Creation with Poser 5 (Paperback)
Creating figures for Poser is not a task for beginners to Poser, so of course this book is not for you.

This book is excellent and a great help if you are starting to learn how to create your own content. Although the book is quite old and there are new versions of Poser and new options in the program itself, it still is a great asset to have and I refer to it quite regularly.

There are things that can be overlooked while creating a model and this book approaches the problems which may arise and help you understand what not to do to avoid those problems.

I currently own Poser 8 and recommend this book together with Poser 8 revealed:Poser 8 Revealed: The Official Guide
