Reality 3 for Poser gives Poser users access to the power of LuxRender, providing unbiased, physically accurate, and GPU rendering to help artists produce gorgeous hyper-realistic illustrations and images. With Reality 3 for Poser, users can create finished projects that rival those created using products that cost several thousands of dollars.
“Reality 3 for Poser opens a new world of possibilities to Poser users who will be able to create incredibly realistic images with the ease of use that made Reality famous,” said Paolo Ciccone, founder of Reality. “Over the past few months we've joined forces to define a new framework for the development of Poser plug-ins; Reality 3 for Poser is the first of such plug-ins, a sophisticated bridge between Poser and the physically-based LuxRender application. I can’t wait to see what Poser artists will do with Reality 3."
