BL Render provides an in-depth guide that explains each aspect of the process of creating a figure in Curious Labs' Poser. It begins with simple projects, such as creating morphs for existing figures, and takes you through to the more advanced options such as geometry swapping, joint parameters, the design of the mesh and how that will affect the working of your figure.
Each section begins with the theory behind each step, giving an abstracted base knowledge of the task at hand. Practical sections for each chapter are included on the free CD in which the concepts are put to use in examples, code snippets and tutorials, with all the files you need to follow along yourself. The CD is also packed with numerous utility programs for you to use when creating your figures.
