Poser 7 is one of the most enjoyable applications for creating realistic animated 3-D characters. In Poser 7 Essential Training, instructor Larry Mitchell explains how to design, pose, and animate 3-D characters using the program's intuitive interface, tools, and workflow. The training covers everything from essential animation principles to working on the intricate details of individual body parts and complicated facial expressions. Larry also teaches the minute steps required to create characters that can lip-synch to recorded sound files. Advanced topics, such as incorporating HDRI lighting, animating to reference videos, and integrating Poser 7 and Vue 6, add to the full learning experience. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
"Poser is a wonderful visualization program that works with 3-D characters, allowing you to create, pose, animate, and manipulate them. Larry Mitchell shares his passion and deep knowledge with those who want to use and master this rich application," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
