The Poser team is pleased to announce the public release of the second major update to Poser 13.0 for Windows (13.0.339).  We would like to thank our beta testers and early adopters for your invaluable feedback that always makes Poser better.  Here is a summary of fixes and improvements included.

Rendering improvements:

  • Pixel shift and Gamma shift no longer occurs at the end of SuperFly render.

Material Room improvements:

  • Added new Legacy Scatter checkbox to PrincipledBSDF node to avoid SSS glow.
  • Materials created from inside a compound node no longer crash Poser if reloaded.
  • Clamped" mode is no longer ignored by node previews and renders.

Make Movie improvements:

  • Fixed Sound and Video Export Options to resolve sound issues and save easily as movie files.

  • Make Movie no longer attempts to apply 2D Motion Blur when it shouldn't.

  • Lights property Auto Hide removed. Lights stays visible or not visible depending on the visibility check box.
  • Infinity Lights now allow Set Parent.

  • Lights limited to 0 so negative values in lights no longer cause discolored preview.
  • Light meshes no longer disappear in the preview.

New General Preferences settings and improvements:
