Official Poser news on the latest Poser developments and near-future.
* Poser 11.2 will be a ‘bridge release’ to swop over people’s licenses to Renderosity. No new features with 11.2, but there will be some under-the-hood changes.
That makes sense. One clean sweep to swop people over.
* Once that’s done, onward to a “64-bit update for Windows” and updates that “stay current with both Windows and Mac [OS] builds”.
Nice for the Mac people.
* New “integrated marketplace search” inside Poser.
I’m not keen on the “integrated marketplace search” but as long as it’s just a discreet search-box and doesn’t flash or chirp or have pop-ups every hour with a day-glo yellow strip, then I can ignore it.
* Now that La Femme is the G8F-equivalent flagship figure for Poser, she needs a suitable mate. “Le Homme” is in development.
Presumably he might ship with Poser 12 only, and thus be a selling-point for Poser 12 buyers? Just my guess.
* Selective installers.
So it sounds like you can selectively install only what you want from the free content bundle, rather than clutter your hard-drive with 5Gb of unused stuff. That makes sense if all you want is Robo-Kitty, some legacy characters and a few of the animals.
Nothing about a future subscription model. I do hope they don’t go with subscriptions.
