Poser Editor's Review

The concept of 3D animation and modeling may seem amazing to the viewers but those who are into the industry know it is no cakewalk. Majority of 3D animation and modeling software known for some of the amazing animations and CGI work in films require hours of painstaking work. As it is, Apps like Maya and 3DS Max requires you to spend long time to create nice animations and models with realistic details. However, for users with less time and patience there are alternatives. One such instance is Poser. Made by Smith Micro, this 3D software aims at cutting down the time and labor involved with 3D animation and modeling otherwise.

Poser is available in one basic and another Pro version. The software is priced much lower than its more popular rivals in this sector. It runs on PCs with Windows XP and later versions. The system requirement is not very high either. Installing and setting up the app is simple.

Post installation, Poser greets you with a clean and sleek interface. There is no need to deal with numerous viewports at once though you can choose to look at a model from any angles when you want so. The UI is also quite customizable. There will be a default skeletal model. The left part of the UI contains basic tools and camera control. The lighting tools are also there. You get several types of human models, animals, cartoonish characters with Poser. If necessary you can buy and download additional models and props from Content Paradise a company website.

While Pose ships with plenty of 3D models, textures, props, you can choose to import models from other apps too. Models can be imported from apps like Lightwave, Wavefront and BVH Motion etc.
It can also be used to create stunning 3D scenes with objects like cars and buildings. The app excels at figure manipulation. Changing facial expression can be done with precision. You can tweak with parameters like ethnicity, age, chin, hair and so on. This cuts down the time required to develop a 3D animal or human model from scratch and make changes to various features. The Face Room lets you tweak characters with facial photographs.

It is not only modeling that Poser is capable of. You can create various types of animations within minutes using its controls. You can make a character run, walk or move at various realistic ways. The features in Poser can be changed using its wheel-like sliders. There are some drag and drop controls too. Overall, getting hang of the controls and workflow is not tough even for someone who is new to these tasks. However, you may have to practice a bit to create effects and animations realistic at times.

Poser is based on Python and advanced users can resort to source code. The company has developed a scripting language called PoserPython to let users record complex actions or automate certain tasks. The models made and tweaked in Poser can also be exported for use in other 3D Programs. While it lacks many advanced animation, rigging or modeling features found in high end rivals, Poser more than makes up by its ease of use and extensive customization options.

Positive Points:
•    Extensive library of models and props.
•    Excellent camera tracking and lights.
•    Inbuilt animation templates.
•    Good import and export options.

Negative Points:
•    Creating realistic animations can require practice.
•    Lacks in advanced modeling features.

Conclusion:
Poser is possibly the most user friendly 3D animation and modeling tool available for Windows users. It is easy to install and set up. The USP of the app is it is ideal both for beginners and experienced 3D animators and modeling professionals. The library of included models, animations and props are adequate for most users and you can acquire more from the company website. The app excels at customizing models with extensions like dynamic hair, clothing and facial expressions. You can speed up workflow in 3D projects when you use Poser. It may lack the detailed modeling features and toolsets of Maya or 3DS Max but beginners can create some nice animations and models with this app faster. Its affordable pricing also makes it a worth contender.

Rating:4.5/5
