Character Animation with Poser 7 is written to teach animators, comic artists, web designers, and game developers the fundamentals of character animation. Using the new and powerful animation features of Poser 7, the best-selling 3D figure design software, users will learn how to animate characters by integrating Poser's improved workflow, better posing, lighting and rendering tools, and the all new lip synching feature for making 3D characters talk and sing. The book focuses on teaching high-quality character animation creation based on a Poser-centric integrated software workflow. Beginning with the basics of designing, posing, and accessorizing a character in Poser, users quickly move into using props, adding poses to the library, and creating and applying facial animation. Next they delve into the intricacies of cameras, lights, and rendering. The book also teaches how to integrate Poser with other software effectively such as integrating with Vue Infinite 6 to move characters into breathtaking outdoor environments, and then integrating the Vue scene into Cinema 4D to complete the 3D animation process. This is an essential resource for Poser users wanting to master the new animation functionality and for those wanting to learn character animation techniques in general.
