Speaking of older characters though, I went back through my Poser content and dug up some of the characters to compare alongside the Daz versions. They’re kind of ugly aren’t they? A lot of the time I see Poser being used it’s almost exclusively the Generation 4 characters, and it’s not hard to see why. Have Poser models improved much with the newer releases? The last one I owned was Poser Pro 2010.
No. No they haven’t. Only an extensive and expensive set of add-ons by BlackHearted at Rendo even makes Alyson and Ryan bearable, and these are the “cutting edge” weight-mapped figures.
If weight-mapped M4 ever gets finished by the guy who did WMV4, I wouldn’t expect to see much use of the Poser figures other than by the usual diehards.
