5-0 out of 5 stars unbelievable video production program
If you've only worked with iMovie or Windows Movie Maker, you may be intimidated at first, but the end results speak for themselves.It is true that Final Cut Express HD isn't necessarily intuitive and the options are innumerable, but you will emerge from the other side of the learning curve amazed at how polished your works have become.

You can update old iMovie projects easily; just import them into Express HD and add high quality titles and credits and an attractive soundtrack.If you want to take it further, you can experiment with an astounding variety of professional quality transitions, filters, and effects to deliver the full visual and auditory impact you desire.

If you already have a previous release of Final Cut Express, the inclusion of LiveType and Soundtrack alone justify this upgrade.For a bonus, GarageBand musicians will love the hundreds of Apple loops included in the Soundtrack package. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A valuable upgrade to FCE2
FCE/HD bringing Soundtrack and LiveType to the hobbyist is one of the more generous steps Apple has taken since they brought us FCE1. This is a very big and very useful addition to FCE allowing us to sync audio/music and titles much cleaner to our videos than we could before.

Amazon.com Review

Adobe After Effects 5.5 is the program of choice for motion graphics andvisual effects maestros. No other software package can match its powerful andflexible 2-D and 3-D compositing and animation tool set. After Effects 5.5offers seamless integration with other Adobe products such as Premiere,Photoshop, and Illustrator, allowing users to expand their creativity withpinpoint control for the Web, film, multimedia, and video. Additionally, theuser interface is very similar to the interface in Adobe LiveMotion, making it abreeze for LiveMotion users to quickly learn this program.

After Effects 5.5 introduces multiple 2-D and 3-D views, allowing users to viewa composition from several perspectives simultaneously. A new Effects palettethat helps users easily organize and apply effects is also introduced. Users cannow view all of the installed effects and easily scroll through the list beforemaking a selection. In addition, the effects window is completely customizable,letting users view effects based on their own criteria or by category. Thisversion also introduces an assortment of new effects, including projectionlayers, colored shadows, a color stabilizer, advanced lightning, grid, roughenedges, four-color gradients, and cell pattern effects. With the new effects,users will have increased control over lighting properties and access to morethan 90 effects in total.

After Effects 5.5 has also improved the input and output options not availablein earlier versions of After Effects. Advanced RealMedia export now allows usersto export files directly into the RealMedia format. Users can easily createRealMedia streaming or Web downloadable files that support RealVideo andRealAudio. Users can also import Flash and MPEG-1 files into their compositions.3-D camera data import from Maya, 3ds max, and 16-bit-per-channel formats suchas Maya IFF, QuickTime, RPF, and SGI files are also supported. This allows usersto work more efficiently and achieve professional-quality results for film,video, multimedia, and the Web. Artists and designers can now import RLA and RPFdata directly into After Effects 5.5 to match 3-D shots exactly, thus quicklycreating complete environments.

This latest version of After Effects allows artists and designers to work moreefficiently and with more media formats than ever before. Adobe After Effects5.5 provides native support for Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows XP platforms.After Effects 5.5 is also optimized for the Intel Pentium 4 processor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh my friggin' weasels ...
This program is a superior value for the money. The output is well above its ancestor (Raydream Studio 5.5). The interface is very simple (even easier than Poser).

It has two drawbacks. First, the manual is in PDF format on disk (this always sucks). Second, there is a limit on image size (think about using it for web page graphics, only).

The Eovia website does NOT do this program true justice. However, they hide the fact that it will only make web graphics. feh. BUY IT ANYWAYS. When I think of those sad dorks using POVray, my heart swells with pity ... I can do in ten minutes what used to take hours of blood, sweat and tweaking.

It takes some brains to make 3D graphics, so don't get too discouraged. Once you get past the learning curve, though, oh man ... it's a sweet, sweet little package for creating 3D graphics and even animations.

1-0 out of 5 stars Extremely hard to use -- no manual included
Even though I have 10 years experience in programming and a grappics background, I found this program extremely hard to use.It was easier to learn how to speak Drench than it was to use this sadist piece of software.

The misleading features list on the back of the box makes everything sound to easy to create, but I found it near impossible to do anything constructive with this program without seeminly spending hours upon hours to try and figure out how to use it.

If you can make the program do what is says on the back of the box, then you're probably also able to put together a car transmission blindfolded too.

Can you read minds? There is no printed manual included, only a cheesy in-program manual that is of no help and doesn't explain the various features or how to use them.Unless you wrote the program or have a mathematics degree, you probably do NOT want to buy this program.

Worse, I could not return it, because software is generally not returnable once you open it.

Oh well, now I have a ... coaster for my desk!And a renewed desire to check out software reviews BEFORE I plunk down my hard-earned cash on a piece of poorly designed software.

3-0 out of 5 stars great start off
Add's textures and models helps u get started
there is also two more add on's for carrara not posted here

5-0 out of 5 stars A good 3D program
This is a good 3D program. But ,I think my version has some features missing. I bought it at a local university so I think I have the student version. I have learned a lot on my own by using this program. Much of the animation is painstating work. Sometimes you need to go frame by frame. I finally figured out how the magnets work. I wish they had a better means of sculpting these figures. I hope to purchase the full version of poser 5.

I finally realized that you can down load free figures and props off of the internet. I spent the last few days down loading many props. Now I can make more realistic images, I hope to purchase the Millenium Girls (Boys) figure. These charaters enable the user to create a wide variety of children characters. The children figures that come with Poser are very limited in what can be done to manipulate them. I plan to buy some adult figures that can be manipulated.

It is kind of frustrating that I have to buy extra figures instead of having them with the program (Of course You can download many figures and morphs and textures for free) But for the price Poser is relatively inexpensive and easy to use(The student version is even cheaper. I have made great progress in the past six months since I bought the program. I have not had any official instruction in 3D Modeling and animation except for a brief course in AutoCAD. I hope to take a 3D course next semester. I would love to have formal instruction on Poser.

You can create your own morph targets for you figures as well as make your own props , but these take advance skill and without formal instruction it can be difficult and frustrating. Props can be created in other programs such as Bryce and Lightwave (The class I will be taking uses Lightwave). The Poser Pro Pack is supose to enable the user to use Poser with these other programs. I was told that many computer artists use many different software programs using the stong points of each in combination.

If you can afford to spend thirty-five hundred for 3DS Max, consider yourself fortunate; If you're not a spoiled cowboy from Dallas, you can save yourself over three grand and pick up Poser 4!
For beginners, the software is superb in its' user-friendliness. Fulfill your 3D character and animation fantasies on a budget. The User Guide is very clearly written. Characters can be exported to other 3D applications like Bryce 5, World Builder, Terragen, forester . . . and yes, Hopalong Ferrari in Texas - even the 3DStudio Max daddy bought for ya!
If you doubt the truly professional images Poser is capable of, check out some user galleries on the WWW, and marvel at the near-photorealistic results experienced artists have achieved.
Easy enough for beginners, advanced enough for artists. And just think of all the cool cowboy outfits you can buy with the money you save! What a deal!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
I use this program at school and I love it! I love playing with the animal and skeleton characters!

4-0 out of 5 stars A Useful Part of a Graphics Toolkit
Animal forms are difficult to draw. To someone not well versed in figure drawing (and I think that applies to most people) Poser is an extremely useful and powerful tool with a wide range of applications. It does human and animal figures and just about anything else you can imagine. As has been said before, the rendering quality is mediocre, but I would be hard pressed to fnd a situation where the render from Poser was not going to be taken a step further: given further treatment in a paint program or integrated into a scene rendered elsewhere.

I use Poser regularly as a part of the following suite of tools: Pandromeda's incredible landscape generator MojoWorld, Adobe Photoshop and Lightwave 7.5. Since I am a creative director with a huge background and exposure to different graphics tools, trust me on this! Lightwave and Photoshop are a little pricey, but the MojoWorld is [priced inexpensive] and really takes figures rendered in Poser to the next level. Too bad they don't bundle!

4-0 out of 5 stars The best thing that ever happened to 3d software
Poser 4 is an amazing program that pretty much does it all when it comes to 3d character animation and design. There is no other program that offers so much control over a human model with such ease. Poser comes with a stockpile of premade human and animal models which you can customize and animate, and you can get additional models for free or for relatively low prices by going to any search engine and searching for "Poser models". Poser is not only for making humans and animals; you can import 3d models in a variety of formats and put them into your scene. In fact, I've made a 3d interface for a multimedia project entirely, school yearbook covers, and a special effects scene for a school movie almost entirely in Poser.
Poser's main advantage lies in its uncomparable ease of use and small learning curve. There are some down sides, however: the animation tools are rather hard to use and somewhat tedious. Its rendering engine is slow and does not allow for motion blur, real ambience, reflectivity, and refractivity, and the bump mapping system (a texture that creates shadows and highlights on a surface to give the appearance of bumpiness) cannot used with compressed (JPEG) images unless you also have Pro Pack, thus greatly restricting texture resolution. Luckily, all or most of these shortcomings will be fixed in Poser 5, coming out at the end of Summer 2002.
If you haven't already bought Poser 4, I would recommend waiting for the 5th version, although it will cost about twice as much. ... Read more
