Easily Create 3D Character Art and Animation

Poser 8 is the world's most complete solution for creating art and animation using 3D characters. With Poser, it's easy to make 3D art, whether you're an experienced artist or you're dabbling in graphics for the very first time. Poser includes over 2.5 gigabyte of ready-to-pose, fully textured, human and animal figures, basic accessories such as hair, clothing, pose sets, real world props and 3D scene elements so you can start creating 3D character art and animation in minutes.

* Generate new characters from your facial photographs.
* Add hair and clothing.
* Dress Poser's virtual stage with props, lights and cameras to construct 3D scenes.
* Automatically generate walking or running animations and talking characters.
* Import motion capture files for even more animated realism.
* Animate lights and cameras, and then render your scene into photorealistic images and video for web, print, and film projects.
* Export 3D figures to add characters to other 3D applications.

Along with 8 brand new 3D humans, Poser 8 includes an improved user interface to maximize your workspace while providing better workflow, a new search-enabled library so you can find, organize and use your content easier, a dependant parameter tool that lets you teach objects in the scene to interact with each other, cross body morph brushes to smoothly sculpt a figure across every body part, new photorealistic rendering features that more accurately reproduce light and shadows, and improved character rigging for even better character bending. To save time, Poser 8 has been performance optimized so you can pose your characters and render them faster on today's multiple processor systems.

So far I like what I see. Been playing with it for a few hours and it just works! The new features are nice - the improved morph tool will come in handy for content creators I am sure and it renders a lot faster than the old Poser 7.

Here's a screenshot of the new interface for those who are curious. Featuring Olivia G2 because I'm still waiting for the Poser 8 content to finish downloading

I LOVE IT so far. The improved render times, the Indirect Lighting feature and the new interface are kick butt! I havent downloaded the extra content, but will this weekend after the rush is over LOL

I cant get my Poser 7 Python Scripts to work, but other than that... I am having a ball in there playing around..

The new rigging options combined with the improved morph brush is going to do great things for figure creation. All in all a very worthwhile upgrade.
