Recently though, I started playing around with Poser 7 on a friend's computer and this evening I got some time to borrow his laptop and play around with the tool. Its obviously a professional tool so it isn't as easy for a desktop user such as me to figure it out -- and I haven't figured it out yet. But after a few struggles, what I've been able to achieve with the tool is quite fantastic and I'm really excited by the possiblities. Next step -- buying a license. In the mean time, check out the story of my adventure with Poser above!
A quick warning though: time = money. If you're like me, it'll take you some time to get used to Poser 7, its features and interface. This means that you don't want to:
a) get into character creation when on a tight schedule to deliver a presentation or elearning module;
b) not save your models once you create them. If you do, you retain the opportunity to lend your characters different moods and apply those moods and postures to new characters.
So keep those thoughts in mind, and do try Poser 7 -- its available for both Windows and the Mac!
