It’s sad to hear confirmed that Poser scripter and store vendor Ralf Sessler (Dimension3D aka D3D) has recently passed away. His fine and robust Python scripts, such as ‘XS – eXtended Shader Manager’, came up many times during my recent intensive perusal of the Python scripts which work with Poser 11. On the Renderosity forums, I see that ‘renapd’ reports that materials and information have been requested from Ralf’s family, in order for the community to — in due course — make a fitting memorial for him and his work.
