If you need 3D modeling of human figure most likely you need Poser. The process of setting up character animation is one of the most difficult stages of 3D creation. Poser helps to solve this problem quickly. The Poser user has a complete set of tools for creating and configuring skeletal animation. The main purpose of this app is game assets creation, but it could be also used in medical projects, for simple presentations creation, as well as for multimedia projects where you want to demonstrate human movement in 3D. You can flexibly control the movements of the various parts of the skeleton, to determine the degree of influence of one or another part to the outer shell. There is a console from which the user may control the tilting and rotations of the bones. A definite advantage of the program is that there are a lot of libraries, including animated people, animals, and various scenery that can simplify the creation of environment. Poser compatible with a number of professional 3D editors and also with the most popular game engines — Unity 3D and Unreal Engine. The last Poser release is named Poser Pro Game Dev. This edition can use Kinect for Windows motion capture system. Because of this, it's very easy to achieve the realistic character movements. Poser Pro Game Dev also contains tools for editing the model topology, making it possible to obtain low-poly animation. The other prominent feature — FBX file format support. The earlier Poser version (Poser Pro 2014) includes only Collada import and export.

Pros :

  • A lot of pre-generated content.
  • Good documentation.
  • Kinect for Windows motion capture system support.
  • Popular game engine support.
  • Popular universal 3d formats support.

Cons :

  •  Poser Pro Game Dev version is pricey for the non-pros.
  • The lack of modeling tools Not the best renderer.

Even if you never use Poser professionally and only dabble with it for fun, you’ll be impressed by the quality of 3D work you can produce with relative ease, and gain a new appreciation and understanding for the 3D design and animation work that goes into many of the scenes in films that leave audiences stunned.

Recently, I was given a chance to check out Manga Studio 5 by Smith Micro. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be user friendly and I would be lost after the install. There's so much you can do with this software, it's almost overwhelming. Since I'm a newbie, I'm going to keep it simple and go over the parts of the software I found easiest to work with.

The first thing I thought when I opened the program was: "Whoa! It changed a lot from last version, such an amazing change and has a nice and clean interface. It surely looks more friendly". And well to be honest what I thought on the beginning is becoming better and better while I'm testing the tools and the markers.
