With the new lower pricing model, even users who upgrade from an earlier version to Poser 11 and then to Poser 12 will end up paying less total for the program than buying a full version, Lemon explained.
Because of the updates to Poser 11 and resources needed to develop upgrades from other previous versions of the software, there will be no upgrade path to Poser 12 from any other previous version. Poser 11 will no longer be available for purchase after the release of Poser 12, Lemon said.
To help those who haven't upgraded to Poser 11, updates will be available at a 10% off discount through the Renderosity marketplace through Wednesday, Sept. 23. The full version of Poser 11 is also discounted at 40% off.
Used by artists, illustrators, animators and graphic designers, Poser enables users to easily create full 3D scenes with digital humans, animals and props. In addition to an extensive library of pre-loaded characters and content, Poser 10 and Poser Pro 2014 come equipped with new features such as Subdivision Surfaces for improved bending fidelity, Bullet Physics for adding increased realism to animation and Live Simulation mode for previewing dynamics in real-time.
Poser comes with pre-built, ready to use 3D characters that enable users to begin posing and animating right out of the box. Supported by a multitude of tutorial videos as well as by an experienced team of content creators, developers, QA testers and customer service and support teams, the full featured software is reliable, well documented and easy-to-learn.
Poser 10 and Poser Pro 2014 provide new professional level features, even at the base version of the software. The integration of Pixar's OpenSubdiv library enables artists to define subdivision levels by prop, figure or even individual body part with ease. This feature, known as Subdivision Surfaces, improves bending accuracy, smoothens polygonal surfaces and boosts overall performance by enabling lighter poly-count content. Poser's new Bullet Physics tool simulates rigid body dynamics, soft body dynamics and even dynamic strand-based hair. Poser artists can now add jiggle and bounce to any prop or character, paint soft body constraint weights to animate and more. Users can even preview their animations in real-time with the Live Simulation feature.
Poser's new Comic Book Preview Mode enables illustrators to create color or black and white comic art with improved line control and outlines with persistent shading, even when rotating or animating their point of view. Users can also interactively fit existing clothing and props to any Poser figure with Poser Pro's Fitting Room, which provides five intelligent methods that interactively loosen, tighten, smooth and preserve soft and rigid features. With the click of a single button, designers can generate a new conforming clothing item, using the original figure's rig, complete with full morph transfer.
Poser 10 is a program for digital artist aimed at creating and animating 3D and 2D models. Both professional and amateur artists can create impressive imagery that can easily be integrated into other tools of the industry both as rendered images or in full 3D.
Poser 10 allows you to create 3D character animation and illustration. With this app you can create full 3D scenes to tell the perfect story, then render scenes into photorealistic images or video for web, print, and film projects. OpenGL has been optimized for on screen performance so you can create and preview scenes changes and lights faster than ever.
I have been rolling out all of my software 3D render and image aids only to see there is no supported flash anymore! Disappear for 10 years only to return and find out the Render world I once knew and the things that supported it, have changed or downright disappeared. Does anyone have that version or backward, if you do - what is your fix other thank buying Poser 12?
Actually there is a simple fix for that issue of flash it wil solve all the issues in Poser 2012 and 2014 ... make sure having a clean removal of Flash then take version 11_active_x_64bit_220.127.116.11 this version will not be removed from your machine, deactivate updates . this will also solve issues for other older programs or plugins you are running for example Incredi mail and many other affected stuff that stopped working.
The above solution is the better choice with that older Flsh version. In case that it does not work it can be due some traces that are left then you can runn a Win full update by downloading the Microsoft tool without overwriting your settings and installs, this also foixes many Win issues and will in worst case permit to runn older flash again.
Issues with Poser 12 are that you will lose all your Python's they will stop working, same thing with Poser 11.2 from Renderosity without the Hack script to fool poser on start. They made a terrible error when upgrading by shortening the Verion nummber and damaging this way to load Python scripts. Poser 12 runns Python 3 no older Python's will load. Also allot of other valuable things have been removed like the Material room simple setup you will need to make all the material connections manually. A very big loss !
If you are in posession of older Bought packages like dolls for V4 or materials with python extentions you will lose all these features in the Poser 12 version, I do not know if it is really worh it Atm. Seams rather to be a downgrade then a upgrade. Poser 12 is still on Pre release after 2 years....
So if you have Poser Pro 2014 working stick on it , if you have Poser 10 normal version try getting a hand on the Pro version if you have a valid copy of SM 11.1 Pro try to get it to runn again there is a way and the best actuall solution from my point of view.
Thank you for telling me , People can google for Flash archives and download the version there, it is a little confusing in the archives as there are allot of versions so just check the correct version nummber the verion mentioned works older versions might not. I had to go through many versions until found the correct one :)
Commenters above said "the old scripts will not work" and "no older Python's will load" in Poser 12. This is incorrect parroting. Some well-written older scripts can still run, even ancient scripts from PhilC such as "Billboard always faces the camera". Many times all a simple older script needs to run is to fix its 'print' statement and to tidy up the indenting. Complex utility scripts don't run, of course, but many of these have been replaced now with Poser 12 versions or equivalents. See the current Digital Art Live magazine (September 2022, free on Issuu) for a thorough in-depth look at the topic, with links to many Poser 12 free scripts.
I have over a 1000 Pythons and beleive me these will have no chance to work with Poser 12 and no one will ever update these! Just to say all the Netherworks scripts all the Shader Works all the D3d scripts. For example as a drop on a hot stone all Luulee products stop working, All 1 click packages stopp working, worst of all all the great Modern Muses and Surreality will not work anymore. Previous products with superfly in Poser 11 will not work in Poser 12. It is like saying you can fill your rubish bin with the Invesments made the past decade just to upgrade to Poser 12. A vendor can't just tell the customer that he needs to fix what he is buying now just to be able to use it in poser, as most products are still sold with no Information that they stop compatibility with poser 12. It s a real mess as no one knows what will be comming next, They might just make an other update because it is officially still on pre release and all fails again what has been made for the previous update.
I have great respect on the marketing strategies of Daz studio as it does not seem that they break everything on upgrades like the new poser owner did Daz keeps the offer of support for Poser, what would poser be without V4, well not even think about that! Daz made a huge contribution for Poser's popularity. I do not use Daz Studio even that I wish I could, but never figured out how to convert my WM SBSSW models in order to work in Daz Studio.But I am patient and with full hope that one day there will be a compatibility feature. Daz is free a great value, Poser should take a example but instead it updates and breaks most of older stuff, worst of all the Call home every week else puff all lost and your investments go right with it. If member (Customer) mention he's thoughts in the Renderosity forums or makes a public complaint they will remove it rightaway ( Censure ) with a probable Ban, and not only a forum ban but also removal of the account with all purchases no matter how much the customer Invested over the years ( Justifying there act with " we have the right to ban a member if we do not like him " ). This whole strategy does not really seem having a good future either it is a serious way of business. 2b1af7f3a8
