After the regular run of Service Release patches for Poser 11, Smith Micro has just announced a free Poser 11.1 update. It’s due later in December.
There are “many improvements” and even a few new features. For free, which is nice. The additional features announced, so far, are:
* 3D Animation Path – “create and manipulate a 3D path on the project scene and have an object travel that path while animating it at the same time”.
* Animation Palette – “group keyframes by categories and/or themes and easily identify the existing keyframes within each group. Additionally, the Animation Palette now shows the number of keyframes that a group contains at any given frame, and also allows for management and assigning of categories to keyframes”.
* Paul v2 and Pauline v2. These are the flagship male and female characters which ship for free with Poser.
I’m not likely to use any of those, but it’s good to see that hard work is being done by the new team on progressing Poser.
