The Poser Libraries


The Poser Libraries

Poser has nine libraries which contain the built-in Poser content such as posable people, characters, clothes, etc.

The Figures Library contains posable people, cartoon characters, animals and more.

The Poses Library holds the preset poses. Let's say you want your character to look like he is falling. All you need to do is click on a pose in the library and he automatically takes that pose.

The character's facial expression is very important for how life-like he appears. The Expression Library contains many preset facial expressions to go with the content figures.

Next, you say you want your character to have great hair. Well, you will find two types of hair in the Hair Library. The first is Conforming Hair which is good for still 3D scenes. But for animations, you also have Dynamic Hair which moves like real hair in response to the character's movements.

Besides the facial expression, the character's hands are very important to the scene also. Poser has a Hands Library with posable hands that work with the content figures.

The Props Library contains clothing for your characters. The Props Library also has Poser Magnets for creating your own custom characters (called morphs).

Next, there is a Lights Library which contains preset light sets or lighting arrangements for your scene. For my more advanced readers, Poser has studio lighting which includes the Key Light, Fill Light and Back Light. Poser also has four types of lights (Infinite, Spotlight, Point Light and Image Based) and three types of shadow effects (Depth Map, Raytrace and Ambient Occlusion).

The Cameras Library contains, as you would expect, the preset camera arrangements.

There is a ninth library that you will find in the Materials Room. The Materials Library contains basic color and image maps, called material maps.

So as you can see, you have a vast amount of content to start with that you can use or modify as you like. Let's take a look a the other Poser rooms.
