The Renderosity MarketPlace Staff is excited to announce the immediate release of a comprehensive Poser tutorial package from ironman13 & Fugazi1968. With the help of this nearly 5 hour training session, viewers will get an in-depth look at many of the new features included in the latest release of Smith Micro's Poser products.
These features include; Copy Morphs, Fitting Rooms, Grouping Tool, Magnets, the Material Compound Node, Improvements to the Morphing Tool, Parameter Controls, Physics, Rendering & Comic Preview, Physics Props and Pixar Subdivision.
Renderosity asked the creators of this new tutorial about the thought process behind the product and here's what they had to say:
"Well, the reason is we both know how time consuming it is to hunt through the manual for days or weeks on end or digging through forums trying to track down knowledge. It can take an artist weeks, if not months, to get caught up to speed on the new information - an experience no one likes and one that each of us have been through with each new release of Poser. So we thought about it and, rather than doing a standard product, we thought we would save everyone from that hassle. Fugazi1968 (aka John) even booked a week off of work to make sure we had the tutorial released in a timely manner. And the folks here at Renderosity assisted us in expediting the product to get it to the users as quickly as possible.
The physics engine and fitting room are seemingly quite complicated but are actually very easy to use and user friendly when broken down. There's actually not that many steps to creating a a simulation or fitting clothing when broken down. It's something that user's generally shy away from but we want everyone to know they can do it! It isn't something that's even that time consuming! It's quite easy to master quickly when it's broken down into simple bite size chunks.
Our last Poser video training was so well received that we knew this one was sure to be a success too. We also improved the audio quality and added windows where the user can see both of us as we are giving the training".

"We have 5 hours of video training, arranged in easy to navigate folders, for convenience and easy reference. Also we have recorded them in .mp4 format for ease of use on all platforms. Users can watch Fugazi1968 (aka John) and ironman13 (aka Steph) in a small window of each video for that personal touch while watching. In addition to fully covering the mechanics of each new feature this tutorial will ensure you are fully able to unleash your creativity, without the limitations that come from a lack of knowledge. Save time and get ahead the curve with this training!
We are both very excited about these new features and are sure those watching will experience a sense of satisfaction and excitement over new possibilities that open up when you take this tutorial"!
