This is more related to postwork in photoshop CS5, but most artists tend to use a softening technique on their poser renders which almost always makes it look much better than the default render. Here's a few tutorials on those and other basic postwork techniques:
I am making a few tentative steps in Poser Pro 2012 and have Win 7 64 bit. I have read this thread and got great help. I've just downloaded EZSkin and have installed the EZSkin 2.pyc into the Python Scripts menu but when I try to run it (having loaded V4.2) I get a message which says "EZSkin requires build 21462 or later - apparently I have got build 16510. Anyone know what I can do to proceed? Thanks.
Crosstalk refers to dial settings in the character figure being automatically picked up and emulated in the conforming clothing. It is a crude sort of autofit, assuming that all of the morphs in use are in both items.
To use or not to use?
99% of the time, I find it useful. The other 1% is a case where it seems to cause poke-through in some poses. In that case, it's a PITA.
Hey I'm using Poser 9 trying to animate a Poser model that was made during the time of Poser 5. For some reason, the feet on the model don't have xtran, ytran, or ztran properties that I can edit, but I'm sure people with an earlier version of Poser could edit these values. Is there anyway to fix this or do I need to find an earlier version of Poser to do so?
To use Poser or not? I bought Poser but have yet to educate myself save the online freebie tutorials. Before I spend a great deal of time, I wonder if I might ask a noob question.
My wish is to create short animated films (3-8 minutes). I can't draw. I was hoping to buy precomposed figures, props, etc. Many I see for sale look fine for my needs. But, quite often I will need to tweak the prop. Is it possible to edit a bought prop? For instance, I need a haunted house with working window shutters. The buildings for sell don't have shutters. I'm sure I can create a shutter. I just wonder if it is possible to add these to the bought model?
Thanks in advance.
I need help doing a glass shader for a sword. I want to have edges like knapped flint, and some good refraction. The sword is very large one of Alpha Seeds new ones. I may imbed something inside, but that will be easier then finding these glass shaders... ;)
PPS please include SS's for me!
yes. bill was the first to post the simplified fresnel shader here.

Yep leave it to Bagginsbill to come up with nice posts like that!
Thank you too, BTW.
Any thoughts on creating the 'flint knapped' edge bum? If I go in and edit the jpeg images of the original sword to make the edge that is OK, right?

Quote - I need help in understanding where or in what part of PP 2012 I should install "ShaderWorks Library Manager."
Do I simply install it into the same location as Poser?
I have this also, is it a free standing add-on? Or a Script?
