Poser 7 Revealed The efrontier Official Guide by Kelly L Murdock




Authors: Kelly L Murdock
ISBN: 1598632965
Publisher: Course Technology PTR
592 pages
Published: Dec 2006

My first reaction to this book was that it wouldn’t be very helpful in learning Poser because it did not contain any project-based tutorials. However as this book found a permanent place on my reference shelf, I quickly realized that I was wrong. As I worked through several project-based Poser tutorials from the web, I found myself frequently referencing back to this Poser 7 Revealed book to better understand how to use a specific tool or technique needed for the tutorial. The basic concept behind the Revealed book series is to supply simple explanations for each feature of a software and also give supporting exercises to reinforce what you have just learned. Although you will not create a finished project from this book, Kelly L. Murdock has written the perfect handy reference for the PoserR 7 software by e frontier, Inc.

Murdock begins with an overview of the Poser 7 interface and introduces each major set of tools found in the Poser Rooms. He covers the Poser Libraries and then moves on to the basics such as posing figures, working with props, cameras, lighting, materials and building a Poser scene. With that background covered, he then discusses more advanced topics such as adding dynamic hair and clothes to your figure and creating facial expressions.

Posing your figure is only part of what can be accomplished with the Poser software. Murdock covers morphing and rigging your Poser figures for animation and shows how lip syncing is made easy with the Poser Talk Designer Interface. Lastly, he discusses rendering Poser scenes, using Poser with other software and writing Python scripts.

Although the book does not contain a CD, you can download from the publisher’s website the supporting Poser files needed for demonstrating the more complex Poser techniques. Throughout the book, Murdock has added helpful comments and tips.

Kelly L Murdock has worked in the area of computer graphics for many years and has authored several books including 3ds maxR Bible, IllustratorR Bible, AdobeR Creative Suite Bible, MayaR 7 Revealed, LightWave 3DR 8 Revealed and Poser 6 Revealed.
