Viewlarger.Poser 9 includes more features than ever before:Real-time OpenGL Scene PreviewWith Poser 9s OpenGL improvements, youll see accurate, real-time previews of Spot, Point, Infinite and IBL(Image Based Lights) Lights, Shadows, with Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Normal Maps and Back FacingPolygons. The Light Properties control allows the user to toggle specific lights to preview in the scene, withaccumulated brightness for each selected light. MIP Map support improves performance when previewing largetextures. Our OpenGL hardware improvements preview textures more efficiently, with reliable onscreen displayof lights, shadows, and color, for smarter, quicker interactive scene creation.Subsurface ScatteringSkin, wax, and marble are just some of the materials that are translucent when struck by light. To recreate thissubtle yet crucial effect when rendering these materials in Poser, weve incorporated a set of easy to configureSubsurface Scattering Material Nodes. New Nodes include Subsurface Skin, Custom Scatter, and basic Scatter.The Scatter Node includes a number of optimized pre-sets for Skin, Marble, Milk, Fruit and Vegetables. WithPosers new Subsurface Material nodes, youll transform your scenes into rendered masterpieces with lifeliketranslucent surfaces.Rendering Performance ImprovementsPosers FireFly Rendering Engine keeps getting better with numerous improvements in reflections,transparencies, depth of field and 3D motion blur quality, netting visibly smoother results without significantlyimpacting render times. Weve invested time in Indirect Lighting (IDL) which now can be combined withAmbient Occlusion (AO), and is faster when rendering transparency. Weve also enabled Light Emitting Objects
which are invisible in final renderings yet contribute indirect illumination to the scene. In addition to our newSubsurface Scattering Nodes, weve included a new Custom Scatter Node to support effects such asbioluminescent skin.Weight Map RiggingHigh-end professional 3D applications like 3ds Max and Maya have set the standard for vertex Weight MapRigging, and now both Poser provides the most open vertex Weight Mapping support available. Weight MapRigging offers several benefits including smoother bending folds and bulges with vertex by vertex control overevery bend or bulge. Weight Maps can be added to any joint bend, to twist and scaling channels and can beused to control bulges. Plus Poser takes the standard of Weight Map Rigging several steps further with supportfor Hybrid Joint Rigging (combining traditional Poser Sphere/Capsule Zones with Weight Maps), using eithersingle mesh geometry or traditionally grouped geometry, and enables Weight Maps or zones to affect anynumber of body parts beyond the current joint. Posers new Weight Map Rigging provides a platform that willsupport third party figures that use Weight Mapping, by expanding the open, well documented and easilyeditable Poser PZ3 file format, to encourage creativity and user driven enhancements to Poser figures.Grouping ObjectsNeed a way to move, scale or hide a bunch of objects in a Poser scene, at the same time? Now you can simplyadd any number of scene elements, from figures and props to lights, into a Grouping Object. They can bemoved, rotated, scaled and animated or even hidden and revealed. Create multiple Grouping Objects to holddifferent areas of a scene, or related props and figures. Adding selected scene elements into any GroupingObject is easy using our powerful new Context Menu controls. This significant new feature will change how youmanage your scenes, providing you plenty of control over whole groups of objects in that scene.Expanded Context MenusSometimes, its the simple things that make the biggest difference. Posers expanded Context Menus will vastlyimprove interaction and scene creation, and change the way you work with Poser forever. Six unique ContextMenus have been developed for Figures, Actors, Objects, Lights, Cameras and Backgrounds to provide quickaccess to the most useful menu operations including selecting, toggling IK on/off, copying symmetry in poses,pointing lights, conforming clothing, setting parenting, changing light types, and even hiding/revealing all itemsin a Grouping Object. Once you start using Posers new Context Menus, youll enjoy working and playing withPoser all over again.Full Scene Category in LibraryIn the past, if you wanted to re-use a Poser scene with that perfect environment settings, lights, cameras, propsand dependencies and even render settings, you had to build it, save it, then find and import it. With the newScene Category in the Library you simply add that full Poser scene with lights, cameras, all props and figures inplace, and with all dependencies right into the Library. From there your new scenes can be dragged directlyfrom the Library into the Poser workspace. For Poser content developers this new feature will enable you todeliver fully constructed scenes with dependencies and optimal render settings that require less user supportand are far easier to use.Multi-select Drag and Drop Library SupportWhen we introduced Drag and Drop support in Posers Library, our users found it so much easier to applymaterials, or conform clothing, or drop a pose right onto a figure. With the Librarys new Multi-select feature,youll be able to select several items of clothing and drag them right onto a figure and auto-conform them inone step. But it gets even better when working with multiple categories of items in your Favorites; Multi-selecta hairstyle, several clothing items and a pose all at once, then click and drag them right onto your target figure.Poser will automatically apply the items. It doesnt get much easier. Within the Library, youll be able to dragand drop items from folder to folder making it easy to reorganize your Content.Morphing Tool Tablet Support
If you own a Wacom pressure sensitive tablet, Poser is going to make you a very happy camper. Weveengineered Wacom tablet support into the Morph Tool so you can have much finer control when creatingmorphs. Vary brush strength with pressure for any brush size youve set. The Morph Tool is powerful, but withtablet support, its gotten even better. The new Flatten option for Morphing Tool Create mode moves pointstoward a "best fit" plane determined by the affected vertices.Constraint Channels and Constraint ObjectsFor our animators that have been looking for a way to animate a ball being throw or caught, weve introducedConstraint Channels and Objects. Basically, the Constraint Object is an animatable handle for an object that willallow you to parent it to a figures hand as it winds up for the throw, and then have the object leave the handand fly through the air as if its being thrown. Constraints are a simple to use feature that will permit all kinds ofcool animation effects.Light Emitting ObjectsWe changed the face of rendering in Poser when we introduced Indirect Lighting (IDL). Poser users quicklydiscovered that, with high ambient values to cast light that with a few tweaks, they could open up a huge arrayof lighting effects. Now you can create Light Emitters; toggle off visibility in rendering for objects, yet stillenable them to cast light. Build light domes, environment domes and large area lights to cast ambient lightwithout being rendered in the scene. Combined with our new Poser Scene Library category, this feature will bea great way to deliver a fully lit IDL environment.Frame Selected ObjectIn complex scenes it can be a little challenging to keep your camera focused on an area that youre working onusing Posers original camera controls. To help out, weve introduced the Frame Selected Object Camera. Withthe click of a button, your current camera will zoom in on the selected object, allowing you take a closer look atexactly where youre working on. This makes it easier to navigate in and out of your deep scenes and savesyou time when creating them.Orbit Selected Object ModePoser also includes a new mode as a companion feature to the new Frame Selected Object Camera. Simplytoggle on the Orbit Selected mode and your current camera will rotate around the center point of the currentlyselected object. This makes it easier to focus on a selected element, and view it from every direction byspinning Camera trackball controls.Faster Dynamic HairOur engineers spent time under the hood to speed up Dynamic Hair. Now Posers powerful Dynamic Haircalculates collisions faster and renders it faster as well.Pre-render Texture CachingWeve heard your requests for faster pre-render texture handling and delivered two new methods that will savetime the minute you press that Render Now button. Poser now preprocesses all scene textures in thebackground making use of your multicore processor, in prep for that first render, and can cache those texturessession to session if you desire. Choose between traditional and the new Crisp texture filtering options.Python 2.7 SupportPoser keeps improving and so does Python. We now provide Python 2.7 support to take full advantage ofimprovements to the scripting language.Mac OS X 10.7 Lion SupportPoser 9 is now fully Cocoa based and supported on Apples latest OS X 10.7 Lion.

Build light domes, environment domes and largearea lights to cast ambient light without being rendered in the scene. Combined with our new Poser SceneLibrary category, this feature will be a great way to deliver a fully lit IDL environment.Poser 9s improved Firefly render engine now supports Indirect Lighting with Irradiance Caching for GlobalIllumination effects and even supports rendering with Ambient Occlusion. New Shader nodes enable SubsurfaceScattering for luminescent skin tones and Custom Scattering for bioluminescent effects. Posers physicallycorrect light fall-off produces more photo-real final renderings.Skin, wax, and marble are just some of the materials that are translucent when struck by light. To recreate thissubtle yet crucial effect when rendering these materials in Poser, weve incorporated a set of easy to configureSubsurface Scattering Material Nodes. New Nodes include Subsurface Skin, Custom Scatter, and basic Scatter.The Scatter Node includes a number of optimized pre-sets for Skin, Marble, Milk, Fruit and Vegetables. WithPosers new Subsurface Material nodes, youll transform your scenes into rendered masterpieces with lifeliketranslucent surfaces.Putting actual people into dangerous, inaccessible or imaginary places to serve as a model for digital image or videocreation isnt possible or practical.Take crime scene recreation for example: you need an imaginary 3D world where you can place all thesuspects, victims, weapons, explosions, and more and play out their interactions without anyone getting hurt.In fact, Poser Pro is a critical tool used by the production crew for the television drama Bones. They use itweekly to pose and animate their re-enactments--check out this video straight from one of their episodes.Industrial and architectural designers, medical illustrators, product engineers and graphic artists often needvirtual humans to interact with a design, to convey a sense of scale or draw attention to a feature in a designedproduct.
