If you’ve been using Poser forever you might have forgotten about some of the core features that make it easy to bring characters to life. If you’re new to Poser, maybe you’ve been asking why you should add Poser Pro Game Dev to your toolkit for game and interactive content creation. In either case, or even if you’re somewhere in middle, be sure to read on.
Poser not only teaches 3D fundamentals and more advanced skills such as 3D animation, but it's fun, provides abundant personal entertainment and opens up professional growth and opportunity.

A few days ago, one of our favorite Poser artists, Isikol, https://www.facebook.com/isidorekol from Athens, Greece, posted a very cool image on his Facebook page to celebrate the kick-off of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. A quick refresher on Isikol – he’s the guy who just wrapped up an original Poser image for the cover of Heavy Metal Magazine.
Our friends at Rooster Teeth are doing a great behind-the-scenes video diary series featuring the production process and showcasing some of their favorite tools used in the creation of their hugely popular RWBY animated series.
If you haven't seen some of the remarkable images rendered using "Reality 3 for Poser" to LuxRender, then you must live in a cave; not that there's anything wrong with living in a cave. If you're finally venturing into the light and are curious how you too can create uber photorealist images from your Poser scenes, check out these two free tutorial videos from PretA3D, the developer of Reality 3 for Poser.
It's Throwback Thursday and what could be better than a trip back to 1999. "The Matrix" filled the big screen with images of a dark future where a band of human revolutionaries battled the machines to save Zion. Nero, played by Keanu Reeves, is the One. The savior of mankind.
Problem is, before he becomes the super hero Nero, Thomas A. Anderson, meek human dude, needs a few system updates to prepare for the battle ahead. Kung Fu was at the top of the list. Call in Poser 1 to the rescue! Using box stock martial arts poses from Poser, the cinematic sequences for Nero's Kung Fu training were animated and rendered in Poser and then displayed via on-screen programming interface.
At the risk of throwing in a spoiler, Poser provided exactly what Nero needed to save the day, and the future of mankind in dark underground tunnels of the future.
Special thanks to Brian Romero, Poser QA Engineer for this Throwback Thursday! Find out more about the history of Poser.
