Interesting and expensive Poser "substitute"...

Looks great... but 11,990$ USD ?????
Old 03 March 2003   #2
Looks kinda anatomically incorrect if you ask me; or maybe the 'model' for the template/generic male just happened to
have extremely awkward proportions -
Resolution-independant maybe, but Poser, while not fully customisable, is STILL more I mistaken???

Those examples on that page don't look that amazing especially for that price! I agree with Atwooki, the anatomy of the model looks quite off too

took the words out of my mouth, the price is outrageous for such a mediocre product

humm, that guy has some funny looking abs.

If they have their base technology down correct, it should be easy for the company to make tweaks to the models to improve their atomical correctness.

the cost comes i believe in the new way they did the programming and scaling algorithms. I think in the right hands, that can be one seriously cool tool.... but geeez... the cost of that could easily put me through my first year @ UC Davis. =D

Whoa I guess it could be cool, but you could buy XSI or Maya for that price

you could buy 5 seats of maya for that

the anatomy does look off. I think it would be good for digital doubles, but they should rethjink the price and but up a gallery if they can get anyone to buy it in the first place.

Can't quite work out what's going on with this lot. If you think the characters here look bad, you should have seen the ones they had up eighteen months ago.. but then it was to be a whole system for growing muscles, fat etc,, this looks a bit too much like a mix and match me a character prog.

USD$11,000?! This may not be up to the same standard, but a guy's developing a similar plugin for Blender called MakeHuman. It's $11,000 cheaper, too

how is this any better than the human primitive that comes with XSI?

it is far more anatomically accurate than the ones in XSI and the XSI model paramters to adjust make transforms of the surface with little regard to anatomy, but rather linearily transform the geo point clusters, but, they are very useful for bg or starter models as they were intended.

I agree the reflex anatomy examples still look a little odd, and for such a detailed model the fingers on the reflex model look like hot dogs, but the system looks interesting and I gues for some the cost of the software easily equals getting the modeling done from scratch.

modeling actors

I think they should try and model known actors or models and show them off to see how easy it is to match someone's anatomy.

The price!!!...ahahahahahahaha!!! I mean you can't even have a woman model.

it's promising but...I'd rather start with Character Man in XSI, play with the parametrics and then tweak it's geometry by pulling points.
