Hello people How can I create this effect in Poser ? Does it need a special Add-On / Plug In ? The Bones here look 3D, and transparent. Also, highly realistic.

thanks in advance!

You don't mention what version of Poser you're using or how you want to render. If it's a simple Firefly render with no IDL or GC you can get these results FireflySimple.jpg using this shader

skeletonMAT.jpg By lowering the attenuation in the edge blend node you can make it darker.

I haven't been able to reproduce this for IDL and I don't have Poser 11 so I don't know what shader Superfly would require.

Really nice effect!

I'm kind of a newbie to Poser but I do have Poser Pro 12. I basically want to export it with transparency background to be composited with video as in the example. Not the whole skeleton also, just isolated areas , like in the example.

I am aware there are some Skeleton Add-Ons for Poser which are much more realistic. Do you recommend these? Final video will be corporate ( medical therapies ).

@CatherineTodd - Actually it works great for ghost effects on figures too, you just have to make the inner parts of the head invisible.

@JimmyJib - Ok, there is no Poser Pro 12. There's Poser Pro 2012 which is the pro version of Poser 9, Poser Pro 2014 (which I used in this render) which is the pro version of Poser 10 and the latest is Poser 11 and Poser Pro 11 where they stopped using the year as a way of identifying the pro version. This latest version includes the Superfly render engine based off Blender's cycles. If you're not using that and you just use Firefly to render without IDL then you'll get the results you see. You can save as .png or .tif (actually I prefer the latter) and it will save with the background transparent so you can composite it in an image editor. Of course you can make body parts of the skeleton invisible and just render the parts you want. I don't know what skeleton add-ons you are referring to as there have been several. This is just the conforming skeleton for Alyson that came with Poser. If the video is for a medical illustration I'd assume you want as realistic a skeleton as possible but I can't help you there as I'm not aware of what are the best ones available.

I did a quick try with something else but I didn't know quite where to go. I'll be giving it another go around.

I may give that a shot myself to confirm, but I've only had PP11 for a short while myself. Still, from what i understand, Superfly will interpret most of the nodes for Firefly. Whatever it considers an illegal connect, would show up as a black line and the plugs that are invalid connections would be grayed out.

The purpose of the refract was to make a ghost shader that doesn't show the surfaces behind the front surface. You're not using it correctly here -- the trick was to also make the figure invisible to raytracing. Otherwise you might as well use transparency.


Renderosity forum reply notifications have been wonky in the past. I'm testing the waters to see if it's working now. If you ask me something and I don't come back, it probably isn't. (Updated January 17, 2017)

Thanks for the link bagginsbill. I'll be sure to try that.
