Poser now belongs to Renderosity, according to both Renderosity and a Smith Micro press release…
Bondware Inc., the parent company of Renderosity.com, has announced the acquisition of the Poser software product line … The acquisition is effective immediately.
William W. Smith Jr., President and CEO of Smith Micro, said Poser… “has had a long history with Smith Micro and I am pleased to see it going to a long-term partner in Renderosity.”
One immediate drawback seems to be that the cheaper Poser 11 Standard has been withdrawn from sale at Renderosity.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
