The next face of Poser is here!

With much anticipation from Poser lovers around the world, Smith Micro released the latest versions to the Poser family. The next generation of Poser Software was officially released on Tuesday, May 21st.


You can purchase the Poser box cover character, Anastasia, exclusively at Renderosity.




New Poser Pro 2014 Only Features

Fitting Room

Interactively fit clothing and props to any Poser figure and create new conforming clothing using five intelligent modes that automatically loosen, tighten, smooth and preserve soft and rigid features. Paint maps on the mesh to control the exact areas that you want to modify. Use pre-fit tools to direct the mesh around the goal figure's shapes. With a single button, generate a new conforming item using the goal figure's rig, complete with full morph transfer.

Copy Morphs from Figure to Figure

When creating new content for Poser figures, morph transfer enables conforming clothing developers to easier support a wide array of figures and include both full body and partial body morphs that can be driven by the base figure.

Powerful Parameter Controls

To provide Poser content developers more power, display hidden parameters so they can be interactively modified. Drag and drop parameters to change channel and parameter order calculation for control of how operations such as physics simulations, morphs, bends and deformers interact.

New Features in both Poser 10 and Poser Pro 2014

Pixar Subdivision Surfaces

Smith Micro has integrated Pixar's OpenSubdiv library to provide Pixar Subdivision Surfaces, with user definable subdivision levels per prop, figure or even individual body part. Subdivision improves bending fidelity, smooths polygonal surfaces and improves performance by enabling lighter poly-count content. Poser includes a new Unimesh skinning method to support subdivision on figures with compliant geometry.

Rendering Speed Improvements

The Firefly render engine has been optimized for faster performance when Raytracing.

Bullet Physics

Bullet Physics simulates Rigid Body dynamics, Soft Body dynamics, and dynamic strand based hair. Create rigid simulations with constraints to build complex mechanical interactions. Paint softbody constraint weights to animate. Add jiggle and bounce to any prop or character. Use the Live Simulation mode to preview dynamics in realtime, or calculate simulations to include in rendered animations.

Comic Book Preview Mode

Use Poser's exciting new Color and B&W Comic Book Preview for static or animated toon imagery. This feature will enable you to create comic art with fantastic line control and color, or clean black and white outlines with persistent shading even when rotating or animating your point of view.

9 New Human and Cartoon Figures

Also included are two new humans utilizing magnets with weight maps and polygonal detailing optimized for SubD. Seven new 3D cartoon figures with incredible facial expressions and personality, worthy of an on-screen cameo in Hollywood, are part of the included content.

Magnet and Deformer Weight Map Support

Poser's Magnets and Deformers have always been a powerful tool for modifying and animating figures and props. Now with Weight Maps, deformers are even more useful with extraordinary vertex level precision.

Magnet and Deformer Weight Map Painting Tools

Control the power of Poser's new Magnet and Deformer Weight Maps with painting tools that enable vertex by vertex editing. With the added precision of Weight Maps, deformers can be subtly edited to create brilliant content.

Interactive Raytrace Preview

Preview every scene change you make with the new Interactive Raytrace Preview with a fast raytraced display. It's a great way to see changes to camera angle, lights, shadows with all the benefits of the optimized Firefly Raytrace engine including transparency and reflections.

OpenGL Speed Optimization

OpenGL has been optimized for on screen performance so you can create and preview scene changes and lights faster than ever.

Grouping Tool Improvements

GSelecting polygons for group editing is easier now by painting, add or remove polygons by group or material and mirror selections across X, Y and Z axis.

Morph Brush Improvements

New Morph Brush methods make it easier to tighten, loosen, sag, flatten, smooth and restore any mesh, whether it's a prop, figure or conforming figure. The new Goal feature lets you select a target to morph towards for precise fitting to any figure. Fine tune the morph creation process with the user definable Pokethrough Margin. Use arrow keys to change brush radius and magnitude.

Material Compound Nodes

Create and distribute complicated materials in a simpler fashion with Compound Nodes. Select any group of individual material nodes and combine them into a single block. Users can expand Compound Nodes to edit the individual nodes, or leave them collapsed.

Gamma Correction

Gamma Correction is now in both Poser 10 and Pro 2014 so gamma controlled content can be developed and delivered to every Poser user, supporting uniform materials across versions.

Very intriguing new features... But I have to wonder how they managed to make Anastasia look quite so creepy. Would also have liked to see something about Genesis support.

really wish my pc could run this... Hey Rendo have any pcs, you need to get rid of, :D ok ok cheap shot at best, but I agree with the first comment droooooooools.

Nice! Too bad I can't afford's what I cut my 3D rendering teeth on years ago. I just upgraded to DAZ Studio 4.6.

The "beast" is into the hard disk (~8 hours to download :-p) : let us leave a lapse of time to install it and try it...

It is AMAZING, run to get it, you will not be sorry, it's totally worth it!

Holy cow! Looks like this version does it all!! I want to wait until I have a 64 bit machine (which gives time for patches and kinks to be ironed out anyway) but this is going to be great!!!

Installed PP2014 and linked it to my old PP2012 Runtime via 'add library' and ALL my content is there and seems to be working fine. I didn't even have to reinstall Reailty 3!!!! Still playing, but so far it seems worth the upgrade!!! (The Pose Window display looks much better while fiddling with your pose and whatnot.) I'm happy and getting happier!

I am on the edge of upgrading does 2014 firefly rendering really seem much faster for rendering?

As a Poser user since the old P4 days; I'll wait a year and let everyone who rushes out to buy it be my personal quality control.

Ordered mine the first day. Can't wait!

Muito bom, não vejo a hora de usar. Espero que o render seja parecido com o Reality.

I have been using poser since the poser4 days.. I currently have poser 8. I will most likely upgrade toPP14 after a few months and the kinks are worked out

What the... I purchased Poser 9 only a few weeks ago!!

ich habe Poser9 letztes Jahr im August gekauft :)

I upgraded today and loving Pro 2014. I am still learing all the new features.

Nod ( posted at 9:25AM Sat, 25 May 2013

I’d get it right now. But the minimum resolution is higher than my television can go, even though it’s HD! 1440 x 900 minimum resolution. You’d think a 26” screen could manage poser? Even my new laptop doesn’t go that high.

ChromeStar ( posted at 2:04PM Sat, 25 May 2013

IUPAC: depending where you bought it, you might have a free upgrade coming. See which says: Customers who purchase Poser 9 or Poser Pro 2012 directly from Smith Micro from April 21 through May 20, 2013 at regular price qualify for a free download upgrade to Poser 10 or Poser Pro 2014 respectively. Please contact customer service with your order number after the product is launched on May 21, 2013 to receive your download. Customers who purchase Poser 9 or Poser Pro 2012 from a third party reseller DO NOT qualify for a free upgrade, but are eligible for upgrade pricing listed above.

From the new features I saw in the promo, Poser Pro 2014 is quite an appreciable giant leap from Poser2012, just like the sharp difference between Poser4 & Poser5 and i think with this, Poser2014 is a must buy for all!

I sooooo would love to have Poser Pro 2014, alone the fitting room makes me DROOL cos it is soooooo cool. Can not afford it right now though:(:(

I would love a copy! Can't afford it at the moment.

Мне нравятся новые возможности. Очень жаль, что я не могу себе позволить купить(((

I would love to enter the contest for Poser 2014, but don't want to be a part of Facebook in anyway. A number of my friends are dropping FB because they are tired of constantly having to monitor privacy settings. Who is sponsoring it (FB? Rendo? SM?) and can I enter w/o getting involved with FB?

Done & Done! Have my fingers crossed. If I only win one thing this year or in the next 3 years, I want it to be PP2014.

Would love a copy of PP2014! Hope I really win this one, because otherwise, I couldn't affored it! LOL

Can't afford it even though it's an upgrade from my Pro2012. I love Poser, but I love keeping food in my kid's bellies more. Grats to the winners!
