Two tutorials are included in this free package.The first is a 65 pages tutorial about Poser WorldMatrix and LocalMatrix Python methods. In order to understand the matrix output, the first part of the tutorial explains the matrix fundamental and related concepts. Comprehension of 3D mathematics is not mandatory because only basic trigonometric functions are used. Poser translation and rotation systems are explained. Many examples of Python scripts are given to find position and orientation of actors. Props are available with the tutorial to experiment with rotation order, to grasp gimbal lock problem and to see orientation of actors is 3D space. A Python script is included with the tutorial to read matrix, extract angles and to find absolute position and orientation of actors in the Poser 3D Universe. The second tutorial presents the Poser ScaleMatrix Python method. Props are included to experiment with the ScaleMatrix method using the provided Python script. Work with Poser 7 and above versions
