Subject: Poser Characters in Photoshop

I hope I am asking in the right forum. Can Poser Characters be exported/imported in Adobe Photoshop for painting on and amending clothes for example? Cheers

Sure you can export the rendered images and use these in Photoshop. That is kinda what Poser was made for originally. You can import the textures into Photoshop and give characters painted-on clothing or new skin. Search on 'second skin' for that. You cannot import the geomety as a 3D form in Photoshop. You need a 3D paint program for that. Poser does have a facility to makeUV mapping meet projection, so paint an image on an object. This would be the inverse of what you ask but end effect is similar and can come in handy for simple objects.

This is not accurate information and mere seconds of Googling would have got a better answer.

Renderosity forum reply notifications are wonky. If I read a follow-up in a thread, but I don't myself reply, then notifications no longer happen AT ALL on that thread. So if I seem to be ignoring a question, that's why. (Updated September 23, 2019)

I stand corrected. Photoshop has evolved since I last saw it. Thank you BB for pointing this out.

I'm sure you can do it, especially since you have a good pc that allows you to do it.

LOL

AkemiYoshida - this thread is from 2016, and the "good pc" described in arrow1's signature (which is hard to tell is a signature and not text appearing in the original post) didn't exist then. Notice the NVIDA RTX 3060 (drooool)

Adobe is now removing 3D from Photoshop. See here (if link is permitted) LINK https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/3d-faq.html

The new 3DCoat 2021 has round-tripping to Photoshop, and may be worthy considering as a non-subscription option.

for Photoshop users this is good and high-quality information, I will keep it to myself
