Webinar: Falling in Love with La Femme
Renderosity is holding a Live Webinar by Nerd3D, who will show the ins and outs of La Femme 1 for Poser 11.
Nerd3D, who as a member of the design team did rigging and advanced testing of La Femme, will cover a variety of topics and answer pre-submitted questions from the community.
The webinar is slated for 5 p.m., CST Wednesday, Feb. 13.
The cost of this event is free but is limited to the first 100 registrants. A recording of the webinar will be uploaded to Renderosity's Tutorial section afterward.
Meet Poser's new It Girl
La Femme 1 for Poser will become your go-to figure in Poser 11.
Available exclusively at Renderosity, the new figure takes advantage of the development team's collective century of design experience to make use of all the features and power found in Poser 11.
Team member Denise Tyler said she thinks the digital arts community will be pleasantly surprised with La Femme for Poser.
"I had hopes with each new figure that came out for Poser and as much as I appreciated all the work that people put into it, yet that 'it' factor was missing in them," she said, adding La Femme was designed with the "it factor" in mind from the start.
The Dream Team
With the full support of Renderosity and Smith Micro, a team of veteran Renderosity vendors with more than 100 years of combined experience with Poser worked to build the new figure from the ground up.
La Femme 1 has been created by the following people with sponsorship from Renderosity and Smith Micro:
• Base mesh, body morphs, and UV mapping and Shaders by Gabriel "Blackhearted" Creed,
• Rigging and advanced testing by Charles "Nerd3D" Taylor,
• Face Morphs, creative support, Shaders and advanced testing by Denise "Deecey" Tyler,
• Textures, Shaders and advanced testing by Rhiannon Morrigan, and
• Special thanks to Stefan Werner for contributing the SSS with Refracted Eyes shader and the Renderosity testing team.
Tyler said the group worked together, chatting about ideas and squashing bugs over the past few months before passing it on to Renderosity for its thorough testing process.
"The end result? The first Poser figure in years that I’ve had fun working on, and working with," Tyler said.
"The Figure Team of 4, the fantastic 4 as I like to call them, worked tirelessly to get this figure to the Poser Community," said Jenn Blake, Renderosity marketplace manager. "They saw how much it was needed, and worked from their heart to produce something they felt the Poser Community could fall in love with."
"Long days, 16 - 20 hours, were not unusual, but everyone just kept on working until she finally came to be," Blake continued. "The only goal in mind was the hope that the community would adopt her. I have thoroughly enjoyed the process over the past year and am grateful to have been able to be a small part of it. Thank you again to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen!"
What the community is saying
At first, Ilona wasn't sure she was taken with the figure. But after playing with her for only a few hours she had this to say:
She grew on me, especially with posing her and not having any problems. But, man, do I love her feet! If you think about it, base characters are not supposed to be beautiful, but what makes them fantastic is the morphs to build nice characters. If she can be as versatile as V4, she will be a hit. She has so much more in her than other characters, and we are used to so little. I still can´t get over her feet! The toes move! Dance poses are now perfect. I will have to make poses with attention to her feet. And you bet I will.
I switched to DS for a while and it was like a breath of fresh air to have decent figures and content to work with, even though it took me months to learn DS and how to make content in it. I had hopes with each new figure that came out for Poser and as much as I appreciated all the work that people went into it, I’ve always preferred the long lean supermodel look, pretty right out of the box, the “fantasy” type shape. That was the “it” factor that was missing for me. Most of the Poser figures that were coming out had shapes that were more “real world” oriented, and I, like many in the Poser community, like fantasy and fashionista art. Now La Femme is "it."
"A breath of fresh air for all my new renders! She is very easy to use, natural looking, amazing when creating detailed morphs and versatile and gorgeous even right out of the box. Very well proportioned, realistic and truly a fantastic addition to the Runtime, she will fill the heart of the Poser Community with joy and fun."
The La Femme figure for Poser 11 uses a beautifully sculpted base model that gives artists what they need to create beautiful images. The advanced rigging is designed to make her easy to pose and keeps the complexities of the figure out of your way. La Femme comes with a wide variety of morphs as well as the ability to be further sculpted with scaling and body control handles. She includes highly detailed texture maps and hybrid materials that work in both FireFly and SuperFly. This gives you capability and usability no other figure offer.
La Femme is absolutely beautiful to work with. What I liked most was her joints. They are smooth and natural in every pose, unlike older models that have breaks and creases that shouldn’t be there. She also renders with ease. While I was working with her I couldn't help thinking to myself FINALLY Poser has the perfect figure. I only use Poser. I have been waiting for years for a figure like LeFemme. If you are like me and only use Poser, you are going to fall in love with her! The creators of LeFemme have packed her with so many realistic morphs. I am excited about this character and will be making lots of content for your runtime!

- News of the Week for Sept 17, 2018
Congratulations to the production team! I hoped Blackhearted would have been roped in to make a new figure from Poser 11's inception. Better late than never. I like what I see, but are more ear morphs forthcoming? The HD ear morphs do not quite define the back of the ear as much as I had hoped or offer any change of the elements. I hope you guys get some rest, and the reward for your efforts. Very smart to make her free.
The figure is a cost of $0.00 and free, the system has always required a $3.50 minimum purchase to checkout. I have added the statement to the product page: "Minimum purchase requirement of $3.50 is required." I hope this helps clear up any confusion.
There are also some great Poser Bundles right now with her in those as free also. Or one of the Content Bundles for her as well listed there. Or if you can't find anything you want today you could purchase a $5 gift certificate for a later purchase once you have decided you like her and want to buy her some shoes.
Hello le monde... Bravo a toutes et tous... Nous sommes heureux de voire que l'avenir de Poser est en bonne mains... Bravo ... Je viens de la prendre avec quelques items en plus... l'argent dépensé vous sera un soutien utile , je le souhaite .... Je vais installer tout cela , merci encore a toutes et tous.... Portez vous bien.....
Dev rigs are included in the figure files. As well as templates.
This figure was built to use the features introduced in Poser 11. Poser 11 is required to use her to her full potential and her textures are developed for Poser 11 as well. WE do have some great upgrade offers and bundles available right now. Some have enough FREE content with them to pay for the upgrade. You can find those HERE
I have her installed and rendering in PP 11, and just popped the two Morph Packs by BH and Deecey in the cart. Just waiting for the $ to appear and they're mine! She looks great, and her feet ARE amazing. Easy to load, get hair parented, just want those morphs now!
Like many Poser users, I have heard promise after promise about the next Poser figure being THE ONE! Usually, not long before the lack of support and promises fade into static. I was surprised when Rendo announced La Femme and to be honest, more than a little sceptical about the claims for her. However, I did download her and, after a few days playing around, I'm going to have to hold my hand up and say, I am very, very impressed. In fact, I'd go as far as to say that Victoria has finally met her match! At last! I shouldn't really be surprised given the illustrious team behind her creation and I look forward to seeing her progress from potential to must-have. Hopefully, many more vendors will be tempted to jump on board and start creating for her because, after all, at the end of the day without their (and the buyers) support she will remain just another figure. La Femme is much more than that so let's get behind her, Poser and Renderosity (who, after all, are the ones with the courage to stand up, put their money where their mouths are and bring her into being in the first place!) OK People! We've got the figure we sorely needed. Now lets back her to the hilt!
I am impressed with La Femme! To date I've been solely using V4-Weight Mapped-and now V4 Evolved. LaFemme is a nice progression. Fantastic posing. I also like the HD morphs-and textures. The re-engineered eye is great too. I prefer to get close to the Uncanny Valley in my renders-and this one is a step closer.
Maybe,this is best figure in poser since Poser was born.Now its time for her partner(LaMale).I have almost all purchased items and ad-ons for this BABE and want more.My wish is more conforming clothing,shoes,poses,ech...from our very tallented artists on this site.
