Fun With FaceApp

You have probably seen pictures on the internet involving gender swapped celebrities and other creepy photo manipulations. These are the result of an app called FaceApp. A Facebook friend and fellow Poser user Dodger started putting in Poser renders in the app to see what happens, and the result is usually a deep dive into …

A New Look for Old Poser Content

My Poser work is still primarily done with Victoria 4 which is over 14 years old at this point. Some of the original Vicky 4 stuff actually looks bad by today's standards, but over the years, new texture tech, rendering tech, and weight mapped rigging has made Vicky 4 stuff look a lot better. So …

Switching Models Can’t Be Done!

I've been tinkering with changing Ariane and Rachel from V4 based figures to La Femme based figures. I've decided to abandon the project for a number of reasons.  First, no matter how close and recognizable the new versions were, they still didn't look the same.

That was when Daz released their latest advanced model Victoria 7 specifically designed to not work in Poser.  Now some people have found often complicated ways to …

More VR Fun: Rendering Real 3D for VR

I have experimented a little with trying to create 3D images that actually look 3D.  Years ago, I did the Stereo "Magic Eye" thing. (this is supposed to be a woman reading a book on a couch) About a decade ago, I also attempted my own red-cyan anaglyph (which doesn't look that good). So with …

Updating Ariane: Poser vs DAZ Studio Again

Over the past month, I have been debating on updating Ariane for her next game. The above was an early draft which I am NOT going to use as I will explain. Like many in the 3D People Rendering Community, I am still torn between the Poser vs Daz Studio rift, which I previously catalogued …
