The download version worked just fine. It took a while to download, but it installed okay. Just follow the instructions.

I've been trying to find a way to have a manikin handy for drawing, and I figured I would try Poser again. I don't have any interest in using this for 3D animation, or in their aftermarket figures/models/etc.

The controls are simple and easy to figure out. I have other programs that do similar stuff, with much more complicated control schemes, so 5 stars on the controls. It makes things easy to pose. (Which is what I want as someone who's just using this as a digital wooden manikin.)

The models are all good enough as manikins. They have normal 8-head models, a couple of 6-head models, and some weird shaped models for variety. You get 11, I think. 5 stars for that.

As 3D models, they all look about 4-5 years out of date. 3.5 stars there. Adding old Poser models from a version I had from 7-8 years ago went okay, once I figured out where to put them.

I don't like the constant upsell or the push to buy aftermarket models. I gave you my money already. Now let me draw in peace.

As a program for posing 3D figures into static poses, it's fine. I wouldn't buy the more expensive versions, though. It's slightly more expensive than a wooden manikin, but much more useful and flexible than one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Headache for a while! February 2, 2014

After downloading this program and running it I was astonished to find that the program was so lame. It couldn't even find its own content even after I reloaded it with the defaults. So, why am I giving it 4 stars? Because, after finally getting to the SimthMicro update center and registering on the site; I found out the program was eligible for a full upgrade to version 10. This solved all the afore mentioned problems after I downloaded essentially a new program as it requires you to unload the old one. This new program has all the content where it can be found and I did not have to load it into my shrinking C drive (SSD.) This is probably the best bargain on Amazon as it is Poser 10 for the price of Debut.

Not sure what the problem is but having had poser in the past ( as a reseller ) I can say that install problems have not been uncommon for Poser products. In this case the Libraries that include all the figures ( kinda necessary, right? ) simply don't work.

While waiting on a reply from Smith Micro I have tried all of their published "solutions" to this problem but none of them work. Not sure an upgrade will fix the problem because several forums indicate that even the top of the line version has problems with the library not loading.

A wiser publisher would not tie themselves to the whims of Adobe to make their product function.

If you can install and it works...be thankful. But I suspect that these are common problems that Smith Micro has never really resolved in any of their releases.

Just make sure a refund is possible then consider Blender and MakeHuman which are totally free, more powerful...but much harder to learn.

UPDATE

Smith Micro sent me a link to download the newer version. Problem is it is a "download manager" and not the actual program. All that wants to do is keep installing the same download manager and never downloads the actual program. I have asked for a direct link to the actual program files or an ISO. If they cannot fix their own program I cannot see upgrading to a more expensive problem. Poser has been less than stellar since it was purchased by Smith Micro.
