I need a medusa plugin needed. It could be a front shot or even just a shot from behind her and you can see her head and all the snakes a-wriggling. (If it was the shot from behind her, she'd probably be black so you can see over her shoulder to the actor)

Or I guess if someone could make a snake plugin I could just get my mother-in-law to stand in front of our bluescreen and I'll add the snakes after.

Can anyone out there help? Please? Pretty please.

The is a medusa on Poser, each snake can be animated, i have not got that ( and i think it's a fair penny ) if you look on the net for " medusa poser " and find one that is free, let me know and i will make the plug in for you.
( poser is a 3d animation programme )
(i'll have a look myself if i get a spare minute )




I'm a natural born Poser. lol

My best subject.... thanks for asking...

KERMZ, i have poser pro pack, ( a lot more features than 3 ) it has blur and stuff.

but poser 5 is coming out soon, worth upgrading to that.


ggbros, YES poser is well worth getting, the plug ins i made of t-rex, german, stuntman, liquid terminator, all came from poser.

The thing a lot of people don't know is you can import 3ds max ojbects ,lightwave and other, this can make 3D use easy and a lot quicker, the render time is very quick and you can animate a " spaceship flying around " in secounds.
look out for avatar lab, here you create your own people ( even yourself ) on poser.


www.curiouslabs.com
www.curiouslabs.com/products/ avatarlab/trialdownload.html - 13k -

www.daz3d.com

Get Poser 4 for only $179 or get Pro Pack for Poser 4 for only $159, a saving of $40 each! Upgrade to Poser 4 from Poser 1,2 or 3 for just $59! Buy the Poser 4 and Pro Pack Bundle for the great price of $279, a massive saving of $140 off the regular price. Or upgrade to the Bundle for only $199, yet another great saving of $100!

b4uask30male, thanks - I gave you a +1 Helpful rating on one of your replies above.

I may take you up on your offer of animating some snakes on poser. I have Poser 4 at school. Is Medusa standard or just part of the Pro pack you were talking about?

You ever consider making a Poser movie? Does Poser export to quicktime?

Thanks for your help.

Hi
thanks for the +1, always here to help.

Medusa is not on Pro Pack, it's just one of those things that need to be looked for on the net.

the snake is standard in poser, but there are better out there, i will down load a few snakes, so they all look different for you.

Yes I did make a film using poser and bryce ( even had talking ) using POSER MIMIC (Lipsync )i had 5 mins in the can over 3 months ( and i wsa impressed with it, ( not toy story standard but very good anyway )

my hard drive crashed, no back up, all gone..... cry cry

Poser people can talk, the best way to do it is to get

Mimic Lipsync, this will allow your voice or any wav file to make the person's face move in the correct way. very easy to use.

What animals can poser do...... anything and everything.

have a look on www.daz3d.com to give you an idea of what can be done.
this site charges for the poser stuff, but there is millions out there that are free such as
www.renderosity.com

as for gollum check this bad boy out.....

Where's the Free stuff, can poser talk, why cant you just make the stuff that you have to pay for?

Not asking for much are you. Right i'll break this down for you.

1. Yes you can make your own poser people " look " on the net for Poser avatar lab, with that software you can even make yourself, check it out. but you can't make your own meshes with poser, BUT
Another way of making your own meshes poeple/ items etc, is to use Lightwave or 3ds max, as poser will except them.

2. Free stuff, just type in on google what you want followed by POSER FREE, eg: Dinosaur poser free
I only gave daz3d a mention as it has pictures of different poser things,eg : animals, clothes, people.
if you can't find what you want by typing it on google try eg: Spaceship 3ds free,

i hope this helps.
Why would you want to make gollum, when if you look for it on the net ( like i did, the gollum link i had on the previous post was the first one i typed in on google eg: Gollum poser ) you should find it free somewhere.
