‘Tis the merry season of releases. Blender 3.0 tomorrow, Rebelle 5.0 on the 15th, and probably more to come as the various dev teams steam toward their Christmas deadlines.
Poser 12 Early Access also has a new version online today. 12.0.752 (24th November) is ready for download.
The last version noted here was 12.0.703 in October, so there have been four internal updates since then, and now this public release. There’s a full changelog on the download page, but here’s my digestion of the highlights. There were three broad areas of focus this time around: general Library and UI usability; the PDF manual and Python documentation; and some tweaks to get ready for unimesh.
* The Poser 12 manual now documents new features in 12.x, and a handy 108Mb PDF version is newly available here. Here’s how to get the PDF downloading for you…
* “Pydoc browsing for Python developers” (see the PDF manual). It appears that Poser 12 users can go to the Python console within the software, from there get a browser-list of modules and then click on the poser module in the list. I could be wrong but it seems that this then lists all the other Python modules currently available under poser and that a Python 3 script can run in Poser 12. Also other Python items.
* Fixes for the drag dock option in the UI.
* Various Content Library palette fixes, including “Content Library search/locate feature now jumps to selected item so the user no longer needs to scroll for it”.
* Various Hierarchy Editor usability fixes.
