Wasted two days trying to get this going...from the Smithnicro website Poser10 is NOT compatible with Windows 8.1 so skip this and get a newer version.

Good modeling software with a learning curve. January 6, 2014

This review is coming from someone who is a total noob when it comes to 3-D anything. I have been wanting to get into 3-D design and modeling for a while and thought that this would be a good product to at least get my feet wet with. Wathcing tutorial videos on youtube and on the poser website has helped a lot and I highly recommend you do that before you give up. Seems like most people use a combination of software to get the finished product that they are working on. I have a lot more learning to do but enjoy playing around with all of the included models. The figures will distort if manipulated further than what they were designed to but I think that's just part of it. Some of the bends in the joints of the figures can look a little abnormal when bent in certain positions. I really have my eye on Zbrush which is pricey compared to this software but looks amazing.

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.

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.Use the Live Simulation mode to preview dynamics in realtime, or calculate simulations to include in rendered animations.

Comic Book Preview Mode

Use Poser's Color 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 color, or clean black and white outlines with persistent shading even when rotating or animating your point of view.

Interactive Raytrace Preview

Preview every scene change you make with the Interactive Raytrace Preview with a fast raytraced display. It's a great way to see changes to camera angle, lights, shadows with all the benefits of the optimized Firefly Raytrace engine including transparency and reflections.

Morph Brush

Morph Brush methods make it easier to tighten, loosen, sag, flatten smooth and restore any mesh, whether it's a prop, figure or conforming figure. The Goal feature lets you select a target to morph towards for precise fitting to any figure. Fine tune the morph creation process with the user definable Pokethrough Margin.

Magnet and 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.

Material Compound Nodes

Create and distribute complicated materials in a simpler fashion with Compound Nodes. Select any group of individual material nodes and combine them into a single block. Users can expand Compound Nodes to edit the individual nodes, or leave them collapsed.

Over 5GB of Poser Content

Poser includes a complete collection of well organized, easy to find content supplied by talented third party content artists as well content 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 and a dragon, robots, vehicles, toy and cartoon characters; over 70 ready to pose figures total.

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. Nodes include SubSurface Skin, Fast Scatter, and basic Scatter. The Scatter Node includes a number of optimized 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.

Indirect Lighting

Poser offers indirect diffuse illumination by combining improved irradiance caching with path tracing, producing rendered images with Global Illumination qualities. By bouncing light and color from object to adjacent object in a scene, Poser’s Global Illumination system can render images that appear so realistic they can fool the untrained eye into thinking the images are photos rather than 3D renderings.

Weight Map Rigging

High-end professional 3D applications like Max and Maya have set the standard for Weight Map Rigging, and now both Poser and Poser Pro provide 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.
