What about collecting all the info poser/povray users would need to make
better use of the two progs together ??

Povray has much more power than what poseray is using at the moment.
Skin textures could be made much better, atmospheric effects are a blast,
render settings can make a scene look much better... many other things...
I think Gilles must have answered questions about skin textures many times
in other povray forums ( Subsurface scattering, best settings, etc...), but
it would be great and practical to have all this right here, where it
belongs.

Is someone here in contact with poseray's developper ?? It would be cool to
give direct feedback of what works/doesn't work or what we'd like to see.

Just some ideas I'm throwing together, now that I've found a place where two
of my addictions rejoin, I'd like to make it useful and cosy ;)

Hello,

I developed PoseRay and you can contact me easily. My site and email are 
listed at the top of the help file.

What feedback do you have?

OOoops, I saw your email there and I know the site. I just wanted to know if
someone there already contacted you :)

My feedback at that time is : AMAZING !!!!!!!!

I tried lots of import plugs (including commercial ones) for various 3d
progs, and none was able to completely and correctly import the textures in
a poser file (textures were ok most of the time, but bumps or transparencies
were wrong or not present). And none offered a preview and the flexibility
poseray has.

But there are a few things I'd like to see to make it even more stunnning
- more povray texture options. Retaining uvmaps but adding some povray
finishes to the texture... well... I must experiment more to say exactly
what I'd like to see there
- multiple texture selection and modification would be helpful. If you want
to change the body texture of victoria, you have to change the parameters of
lots of textures.
- more subdivision options. Well It's already a great step forward... a huge
step...

Pardon me if some of the things I request here are already present, I didn't
have the time to test a lot yet (too much work right now). If I have some
more ideas, I'll keep you informed. Glad to see you here and keep on working
on poseray. Your prog rocks !!!!!

For now to change a property in all the materials in one step right 
click on the property (like ambient color) and select "apply to all 
materials".

Right now subdivision works nicely. You can subdivide a section of a 
mesh by selecting only those groups/materials. To view the entire mesh 
again just select all groups/materials back. You can keep creases and UV 
coordinates are subdivided also. What other options do you have in mind?

Check out the manual. It has some tips and brief tutorials.

Hi FlyerX,
    Thanks again for the great PoseRay app. :O) Would it be possible to add
an FAQ page from us users to your site? As we ask via email, you answer and
post on your site. I think that would be a very efficient way to build a
library of FAQs.
