Poser comes with everything you need to create incredible digital art or 3D animation. 3D Characters, Animals, Vehicles, Props, Scenes, Cameras and Lights, all included! Poser is simple to learn, but powerful. Best of all, its fun. All that's needed is your imagination!
Create Character Art and Animations in 3 Easy Steps
Add 3d Characters & Dress the Stage
Add 3D people and characters right from the library. Customize those characters using facial photographs, even add dynamic hair and clothing. Build a 3D scene on Poser's virtual stage with props and backgrounds. Arrange your lighting and cameras.
Pose and Animate
Pose your figures joint by joint. Automatically generate walking or running animations or talking characters. You can even import motion capture files for more action.
Polish and Render
Animate your lights and cameras to tell the perfect story, then render scenes into photorealistic images or video for web, print, and film projects.

5 Best Poser Features
There are so many great things about Poser, but these are the stand-out features that we think make Poser a superstar. (Forgive us for a moment of pride.)
#1. Open GL Preview
Poser uses your graphics hardware to generate awesome previews of your scene as you're building it, with real-time lights, textures, displacement maps and shadows. It's fun to create in Poser, 'cause it feels so real.
#2. Natural Bending Figures
To support the best bending 3D characters, Poser uses state of the art Weight Mapping with individual maps for each bend, and Weight Maps for bulges and folds. Custom paint maps* with your mouse or tablet, and even create hybrid character rigs with zones, deformers, and morphs.
#3. Spectacular Rendering & Lights
Subsurface Scattering produces gorgeous skin tones, and Indirect Lighting (IDL) supports photo-real Global Illumination effects. Poser's physically correct light fall-off makes it easy to create amazing photo-real 3D art.
#4. 3D Animation Made Easy
Anything in the Poser scene can be animated by simply moving it! Set Keyframes over time, with Layers and Groups, and Constraint Channels and Objects. We've taken the hard work out of it for you with Walk Designer, for auto-generated walk and run cycles, and Talk Designer for talking facial animation.
#5. A Library Full of Poser Content
Poser's smart library is full of incredibly detailed Poser-ready 3D people, animals, dinosaurs, insects, robots, artist manikins, and cartoon characters, with clothing and hair styles, and ready to apply poses. The library makes it easy to find anything with full search support. Even go online to find additional Poser content to build your perfect scene.
Graphic designers and production artists who use other 2D and 3D tools like Photoshop, Lightwave, Cinema4D, Maya, 3ds Max or Vue often need ready to go humans and accessories for all kinds of projects. Poser is the perfect complementary tool, with its impressive inventory of pre-rigged 3D characters, clothing, hair, scenes and access to third party Poser content.
With Poser, any 2D or 3D graphic professional or hobbyist can create remarkable character-based digital imagery that is easily integrated into other industry standard software tools as rendered images or animation, or in full 3D with PoserFusion or COLLADA. If you don't want to model a 3D character from scratch, Poser is the perfect source to add character to your project.
