Poser Renders & Animations
« on: June 14, 2006, 08:08:28 pm »
First.  I would like to thank ~alady for starting a topic in this section,
especially since the work displayed there was a collaborative effort
between she and I.  :afro

I am starting this topic thread to display what can be accomplished
in the way of rendering with Poser 5, and also what can be acheived
by combining it with Paint Shop Pro, Animation Shop 3 and at times
MS Movie Maker 2.

I will be posting still renders as well as animations here for study and
critiqueing by forum members, in addition to answering questions about
different aspects of the design & implementation process. I am still
engaged in working with hapteks PeoplePutty to create character heads,
but please, and also working with Ultra Hal 6.0, so if you have questions
or comments about character heads, character skins or interface skins
please go to my web-site and submit those queries to me via the e-mail
link which is located on my links page. You can find a link to my site on
digitalgirls links page, just click on my logo for Gamer-T's Character Creations
or click this link to e-mail me directly.

Thanks.  :afro  :smiley

and....HAPPY BIRTHDAY - DIGITALGIRL!

To start things off. Here is a basic Poser render done as
standard render and then again as a sketch type render.

Gamer, I do some work myself in poser...though i use 6  :coolsmiley cos thats..well..the kinda guy I am lol.

Myself and Freddy are huger fans of poser (note our splash screen  ;D ) and we are also looking into making poser avatars at some point...the problem being mixing the animation in with hal commands...very difficult...we maybe might juts go the route of like Desktopmates....and just have a character...as we also want to produce our own AI product in the near future.

Keep the renders coming...interesting to see your style...though myself Im more into a soft romantic setting  :)...again...just the kinda guy i am lol

 :) Thanks for the input Marius. I figured that the DG Splash Screen was a Poser piece.
 ;) As to our differing preference of Poser 5 vs. Poser 6, for me it's a matter of finances.
One makes do with what one can afford.  :smiley

I would like to add a note here, that anyone who is interested in experimenting with a
program like Poser but with out putting all the money out first to try it, should check
out DAZ Studio free. It's a decent program with controls similar to what you find in
Poser & based on the same programming language, plus if you search around there is
a lot of free content for it  DAZ has a free item archive, as does Renderosity. But, I
would also advise that if you run across a listing for TurboSquid, stay clear of it. They
are way over priced and it seems that if you click for a download in the freebie section
it installs a keylogger and/or other nasties on your PC.

You can find the DAZ Studio free at -

Great timing Tom!   I stopped working with this becuase my PC was too slow for me before, but in the next few weeks I am upgrading so am looking forward to doing some of this kind of thing again.

And yes, if we could use Poser to make some kind of avatar system that would be an great project to work on  :)

Freddy,   Good to have you guys up and running again.  ;D

The only reason I have startred doing the heavy duty renders and some animation stuff now
is because I finally broke down and bought a 2nd PC, a little rebuilt eMachine work horse for
programming/ entertainment files/ e-mail and storage, so now my custom mod PC's resources
can be devoted entirely to graphics & animation. Of course both are tied together in my own
little home network, all voice controlled using Dragon 8.  :afro

Yeah, Poser renders stunningly beautiful pictures.  Those are absolutely awesome Tom

Now you've done it, you had to get Tom involved in the video game.  See what you've done you've created a monster.  He's going to use Poser and take over the universe.  Next stop Hollywood. :afro

Not Poser but I thought you all might be interested in these taken in the new Guild Wars Factions game, both me and Mav got it a few weeks ago and we were amazed by the graphics, especially as it runs fine on a humble Celeron 1G system too:

This is the first game I have ever played where I have been compelled to go site-seeing too lol!

 :cheesy  Not sure if this is a first or not, but I just managed to transfer the skin from a putty head
onto a Poser figure. Modified the skin.jpg and imported it into Poser's Face Room.  :afro Here is a shot
of the original putty character and then a Poser render using the imported skin.   :smiley

Though I'm sure it wasn't done with Poser and certainly not Haptek,
it's a pretty nicely done video of a dancing, digital girl!

Methinks it was done via Max, Maya or Lightwave.

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

I thought I'd do a Poser render that the members here could use as a
desktop background, it's in .jpg format at 800x600 but looks really good
up to 1280x1024.   :coolsmiley
