Poser

Some older scripts do not run anymore on Poser 11.2 due to a change in the version checking. (Some Dimension3D scripts, Reality and others).

SnarlyGribbly made a small script which will change the version format in Poser to be compatible with the old format. It needs to be run once after you start Poser. Instructions how to install and use it are in the zip file.

You can find the script here: AVFix

Poser has a new owner: Bondware. Because of this the license server is changing from Smith Micro to Bondware and you need an update version of Poser to keep working with it.

The update is located here: https://www.posersoftware.com/downloads. This new version of Poser has added LaFemme as new base character in Poser. Additionally there is 8GB+ of new content you can download from Renderosity (clothing, hair for LaFemme and loads of scenery) and Hivewire (Dawn, Dusk, Luna, Gorilla and Horse).

I have made a Q&A page for the installation which answers many of the questions you might have: Bondware Poser Q&A

Poser has been acquired by Bondware (owners of Renderosity) from Smith Micro Systems. Poser has had a difficult time in the past few years after most of the development teams had been laid off.

According to CEO Tim Choate of Bondware the next update of Poser will have an update to the licensing system to make it compatible with Bondwares own. Future updates and version will be driven by users requests.

Project Evolution ONE is an ambitious Poser figure that is inspired by professional figures rigs used in Hollywood and at the same time harnesses the best Poser has to offer, from elaborate weight-mapped face controls, Full and Partial Body Morphs, to JCM-controlled limbs. Project Evolution also comes with a wide range of morphs, poses and even some basic materials so that you don’t have to wait for the usual addons.

As the name implies, Project Evolution will probably gradually be moving forward as Poser technology improves. She is already pushing the edges of what Poser can do and I will do my best to help facilitate content creation for her.

It is my firm belief that figures like this, figures that prioritize artistic form and reality over everything else, should be the future of Poser figures.

Project Evolution ONE adds two Poser figures (for P10 and P11), 18 characters, lots of poses and materials, to your Poser runtime. This figure should be suitable for most audiences*.

If you previously purchased the EARLY EDITION at CGBytes/Renderotica, first check your account there for a (free) update to Project Evolution ONE and a special offer to update to the ‘adult’ version.
Project Evolution ONE is the Official version from now on.

Faceoff released an update for the Poser plugin for Octane: build 3.08.2.88. Apart from updating it with the latest Octane release (3.08.2) it also added support for 4K screens and corrected a bug with normal maps. Version 3.08 is a must have update for Octane. New features include Metal/Roughness work flow with Metalic Material, Anisotropy, OSL textures and baking support.
The updated plugin can be found here for licensed customers.

Octane version 4 is making steady progress, but I think release is still some months away.
