E frontier today began shipping Poser 7, its 3D human figure and animation software created for artists, illustrators, graphic designers, and animators in both the hobbyist and creative professional markets. Poser 7 offers lip syncing, multiple undo capability, non-linear animation, universal poses, and a new morphing tool mode for creating custom morph targets. The update also ships with more than 1GB of Poser content that includes the new second-generation male and female figures, Sydney and Simon, and a large collection of third-party content. Poser 7 also introduces several architectural improvements to enhance performance, such as native Intel Mac support and multi-threaded rendering, as well as HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging) and enhanced OpenGL preview. Poser is priced at $250 for the full version or $130 for existing Poser 4 and newer users. The software requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. Pre-ordered boxed versions of Poser 7 for Mac are slated for delivery on December 20th.
