Hi, people !!

I've been playing with povray for a long time, a few years ago. But then I
discovered poser and... damn... I got addicted.
I made some experiments with poseray but at that time it was far less
powerful and it was not easy to get a good povray render without playing
with subdividing in other proggies... and I'd better not talk about the
texture problems. And what do I see now ??? An improved poseray, a newsgroup
about poser/povray (not very active yet, but that's a start), people
interested in it ??? Me likes !

For those wondering, I have a gallery at renderosity... mostly made of naked
ladies (poser clothing is expensive, less than real female clothing but
still expensive), and some povray renders... and... well... my interest in
povray now is just using it as an external renderer for poser.

Let's jump in, and viva poser and Povray united !!!!

My addiction 20% Poser, 80% POV.  :-)

PoseRay now does subdividing as well.  I'm not sure how I could live without 
it (actually, I simply complained a lot).  Integrating Poser models into 
POV-Ray still has issues, but I can't believe how far it has come in the 
last couple years.  Getting converting from Poser OBJ's and then converting 
into POV-Ray used to be a real pain.  Now it's often just a few clicks.

I checked it out.  There are some very nice pics there.  I especially liked 
"Feeling Hot" and "Feeling Blue" (nice textures/bump-maps).

I could kinda repeat your story on POV. I used it for years, but eventually 
put it aside.
Now budget situation has changed and I decided to purchase Poser (5). 
Hearing that that there is active support for Poser=>POV makes it even more 
interesting.

Can't wait for the Poser box to arrive...

Don't even think about starting it up until you install the patches. 
Even then, save often, crashes are more normal than not. The patches 
also get rid of the ridiculous registration.

Definitely!  Save early, safe often - with the movement of a mouse you can 
select AND move without realizing it and twist your figures into pretzels. 
With only a single level of 'undo' this becomes unrecoverable.
