I have Poser 2014 ant the new version outputs Alembic files Before I spend the cash to upgrade does anyone have a file to play with? If made in poser 2016 all the better!!
Only Poser pro can output Alembic. I assume you are aware of that?
I do. I would just drop the cash but I upgraded to hitfilm 4 pro and bought a yuneek Q500 drone and I am out of fun money!!
Indeed that would certainly do it haha
You could try daz studio the alembic plugin is 89 dollars
Yes I could but that would mean learning a whole new interface and getting textures to work there that I have built in Poser. Besides I am angry with Das for not making g2 and g3 work in their own software package Carrara. let alone poser. Heck if I were smart I could learn blender, But I am not that smart. I think you have to be up there with Max Planick or Marilyn vos Savant to understand blender.
And blender doesn't yet have Alembic anyway
I'm also interested in how well this works.
I have used a number of Alembic models in tests with Hitfilmpro. Alembic sounds great in theory. The animations come through fine to hitfilm and the model does as well.
The problem I faced is the textures and material IDs don't transfer so well and you need to do a lot of tweaking in Maya are 3DMax and its more problematic with complex models such as characters.
I Used Texture Atlas settings to get around this problem with some models that way you just need 1 material ID. You can get better results with green screen imports in my opinion. But unlike alembic you cant move around them in a 3Dspace unless they are front facing .
I really do hope we'll have a detailed tutorial on the current state of Alembic soon...
