The Poser 12 Early Access installer yesterday moved forward a month, and is now public in the latest version 12.0.386 (28th January 2021) for both Windows and Mac.
The very latest version has two key fixes… “Alpha channel from Cycles image-node renders correctly in SuperFly” and “SuperFly motion blur fixed for background rendering and the queue”.
Before that there were slightly earlier iterations, unreleased until now, which fixed shadow-blur and unsightly ‘seams’ on figures… “Shadow Blur Radius fixed and now working in SuperFly” and “Body part seams [which used to show] in SSS no longer appear, when traditional skinning is used”, and the “Diffuse Value on Poser Surface now correctly functions in Superfly renders.”
Actually the seams do still appear on some figures. The simple fix is to switch the figure to use Unimesh…
It looks like these should fix most of the forum gripes, re: photoreal rendering in Poser 12 Early Access. To aid newer users there are also newly tweaked render presets… “Updated SuperFly presets with improved consistency between threshold value on medium and high adaptive settings, and GPU and non-GPU settings.”
Other notable items are several fixes for CUDA/Optix and other hardware-related glitches, and “Render in Background, with GPU or on CPU, no longer crashes.”
Elsewhere it’s stated that SuperFly now does background transparency and shadow catching, making compositing renders together in a graphics editor easier.
The full technical Changelogs are here along with the installers.
