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 Unimesh skinning method to support subdivision on figures with compliant geometry.

Fitting Room

Interactively fit clothing and props to any Poser figure and create conforming clothing using five intelligent modes that automatically loosen, tighten, smooth and preserve soft and rigid features. Paint maps on the mesh to control the exact areas that you want to modify. Use pre-fit tools to direct the mesh around the goal figure's shapes. With a single button, generate a new conforming item using the goal figure's rig, complete with full morph transfer.

Copy Morphs from Figure to Figure

When creating new content for Poser figures, morph transfer enables conforming clothing developers to easier support a wide array of figures and include both full body and partial body morphs that can be driven by the base figure.

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.

Queue Manager / Network Render Queue

Save time and cut production costs by using additional computers to render complex scenes and lengthy animations. The standalone Queue Manager allows you to set-up and manage a Network Render Queue, distribute rendering jobs across that network, and manage those rendering jobs to suit your schedule. With the Queue Manager, distributed renderings can be paused and resumed, or fully rendered on slave machines so you can keep working in Poser Pro on your master machine.

64-Bit FireFly Render Engine

Poser Pro lets you take advantage of high performance 64-Bit Macintosh and Windows Operating Systems and hardware with the 64-Bit FireFly Render Engine. The 64-Bit render engine efficiently uses all available system memory to render even the most complex scene files in the shortest possible time. Distribute 64-Bit rendering jobs via the Queue Manager for even greater time savings at render time.

PoserFusion Hosting Plug-ins

PoserFusion lets you use Poser Pro as a character animation solution for zBrush, 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D and LightWave. The included PoserFusion plug-ins allow you to open and host Poser scene files and 3D content within these powerful 3D production applications. Integrate static or animated Poser scenes to add pre-built and rigged 3D Poser characters into your projects.

2.0 out of 5 stars Support problem December 15, 2013
Before you buy this product please read the following. People have been having a lot of trouble with previous releases of Poser and windows updates. I am a poser pro 2012 user and have found that
Smith Micro pretty much leaves you on your own once a new version of their software comes out.
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.(no) If you do a search you will find that there reply is "they do not feel obligated once a new software version is released". Well Poser Pro 2014 is off my list since windows is a very update intensive program.

Poser Pro 2014 is the big brother of Poser 10. It has all the features of Poser 10 plus it has network rendering features, and a few other features to help in a professional setting. Network rendering is important because it allows you to use more than one computer to do complex rendering projects. If, say, you have an eight core computer and a twelve core computer and you network them together, you can than use both computers to do a complex render or animation utilizing all twenty cores of power. This software is made for large studios and professionals and serious amateurs with features such as native export to Professional level software such as Lightwave (which I have and have reviewed in this forum), 3ds Max, Maya, C4D, Collada, etc.. It has robust 64 bit programming which can take full advantage of 64 bit operating systems, and thus it is possible to create HUGE and detailed scenes and render them without the program, renderer, or system crashing. 64 bit, is good for addressing large memory such as the 32 GB of RAM I have on my computer. 64 bit is good for speeding up computations as well. But Poser Pro supports both 32 and 64 bit platforms, in case you have some computers that are not 64 bit.

I was impressed with Poser 10, but now I am even more impressed with Poser Pro 2014. I began to put it through its paces just to see what it could render and how far I could go without anything crashing. I introduced into the scene nine morphed Alyson figures, all with full heads of hair at 40,000 hairs apiece, full hi res texture maps, and I set the renderer to 1152 x 864 pixels. And although real time performance degraded with each figure I introduced, the scene still rendered fully without a crash.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! April 5, 2014
This is the worst software ever.
it has NEVER worked even once. The library won't load. I have a very current fast premium computer.
I have been going back and forth with support for over a year and they keep saying do the same things over and over. It didn't work the first time they said it and it didn't work the subsequent 15 times.
So I said fine, forget it, give me a refund and they said sorry, no can do, you passed the 30 days.
Daz Studio Pro uses the same architecture and is FREE! So is Blender. And quess what? They WORK!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of Poser to date December 19, 2013
I've been using Poser since the very early days, and the product keeps getting better. Poser Pro 2014 includes some really fun new features along with some powerful new ones too. Playing with bullet physics has been a great thing, and learning how it works is straight forward, especially if you watch the free video tutorials that Smith has on the Poser website and on YouTube. Their use of Pixar subdivision does a great job of smoothing out 3D figures, especially in the face. I really love using the new fitting room to modify all my existing clothing to fit the new Poser figures Rex and Roxie and the new Dawn figure for Poser. Smith has released three updaters so far. With the new SR3, free on their Poser website, the program is really stable.They also have a free content updater that improves how Rex and Roxie work in the face room. I also love the new cartoon figures that come with the program. They've been great for animation.

If you want to see what kind of animation Poser Pro 2014 can create, check out the Rooster Teeth series "RWBY" on youtube. It really shows what Poser Pro can do in the hands of talented animators.

For me Poser Pro 2014 is a must have new version. If you want to save a little money, gor for Poser 10. It's missing the fitting room, network rendering and plug-ins for Max, Maya, cinema 4D, lightwave and zbrush, but otherwise, just about the same feature for feature. For me though, I want to use the program on a 64-bit system, and set-up a rendering network. so Poser Pro 2014 is the right choice for me.

Smith is doing an excellent job of supporting Poser, with free tutorials, some great free webinars, full documentation, and what counts for a lot - a continual stream of free updaters.
