“SIGGRAPH 2012 attendees can get a special sneak-peak of the upcoming Reality 3 for Poser, launching globally in November 2012. Reality 3 for Poser gives Poser users access to the power of LuxRender, providing unbiased, physically accurate, and GPU rendering to help artists produce gorgeous hyper-realistic illustrations and images.”
Price is mooted to be $59.95 at launch.
Talking of ‘physically accurate’, currently on a special sale at DAZ is the photoreal V4 Elite Texture: Amy for just $8.99. Her textures come with installers for DAZ Studio, Poser, and DAZ Carrara. If you already have the V4 Elite bundle, you already have the Amy textures packs.
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.
