5.0 out of 5 stars Brings Your Work to Life September 23, 2011
By James
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I use Poser mostly for rendering art assets for casual games. I'm absolutely in awe of this new version of Poser! The new features of this software has helped me to breathe new life into my renders. From my experience, the render engine is typically faster than the prior version which is a great savings for animators. The new weight map joints give your figures an amazingly realistic quality of motion and the Subsurface Scattering nodes make everything seem so alive. And there are many other features and improvements that you just have to see. If you're a Poser user, you really need to upgrade to 2012! If you're new to 3D, Poser is an excellent tool to cut your teeth on.

2.0 out of 5 stars No support for Wndows 8.1 December 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Well the program ran very well after allot of searching for the proper way to install. You just don't press setup and walk away and take a break. Pretty much on your own unless you get a walkthrough from an earlier post I found here.

Now the big problem is that Smith Micro does not support Windows 8.1 and Poser Pro 2012. For most the windows 8.1 upgrade shut down poser. I was able to find a work a around (partial). They released Poser Pro 2014 a little over 30 days after I purchased Poser Pro 2012. I bit the bullet on that one. I thought they would supply updates to their earlier products. If you do a search you will find that there reply is "they do not feel obligated once a new software version is released".

So buyer beware. Windows updates frequently. Windows 8, poser runs. Windows 8.1, you're out of luck.
Remember Windows will be upgrading very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! September 23, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I use 3D Studio Max, Zbrush and 3D Coat every day. When Poser came out with weight mapping I had to check it out. Awesome is all I can say. The weight mapping system (actually three different systems to choose from) in Poser 2012 is the most extensive and and feature rich I have ever used. You can mix and match between all rigging options from spheres and capsules, weight mapping (three different types), magnets, and their dependent parameters. And it is all so easy to use. It has weight maps for bulges!

Max is awesome too and the best, anything you want to do in 3D you can do with Max. But it's work. Hard work. Poser 2012 is so friendly it is actually fun to use. The only thing it does not have is a modeler so you have to use premade models (included) or make your own. I can tell you one thing, I will be using Poser 2012 often and will enjoy every minute. Have not found any bugs yet. I imagine there will be a few, every 3D app has them, even Max.

Animation? Animate with ease in Poser 2012, make rendered movies/game cuts directly from Poser. The firefly render engine BTW is a renderman compliant engine, and definitely has pro potential with all the new improvements. Dynamic cloth. Extensive materials editor. You name it. Plus it has this great little community where you can ask questions and pick up any number of things. You can also buy content at these community stores, new figures, clothes, scenery, to much to list.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMPORTANT FOR YOUR INSTALLATION, PLEASE READ August 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Hello friends..

If you are going to purchase Poser Pro as a digital download from Amazon, it's a great program, however, there's something that will save yourself a lot of trouble in the initial installation.

I didn't really see anything on any type of "read me" files that came with my download. If these instructions are there, then I clearly missed them.

However, I'd like to make it easy for people who are downloading this software, to save themselves the trouble I was able to eventually figure out.

I don't know if this is the same thing as when you download directly from Poser's "Smith Micro's" website, but if it does the same with those download packages, then hopefully through some word search, you've found this solution and it likewise works for you.

Before we begin, there's a quick 4 step process listed below all this much more detailed version of what to do and the explanation of this problem. If you're pretty computer savvy and not too interested in what's going on, just go to the bottom and read the 4 steps of instructions there.

For those more interested in the detail, here's what kept happening to me.

I purchased the downloadable version of Poser Pro 2012 from Amazon.com. I began my download, using the amazon poser pro downloader that takes a few mins to download, and that upon running, starts the actual download of Poser. Prepare to allow the better part of the whole day to download this program as Poser is quite sizable.

For me it automatically set up a folder for all the zipped / downloaded files to go to on my desktop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and innovative September 30, 2011
By Beth
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've been using Poser since version one, and find it to be a very fun and innovative software. Poser Pro 2012 just makes it better. Little additions like nested lists and speed improvements are a great convenience, while more advanced features like weight mapping and the dependency editor just increase its capabilities and usefulness.
