Some official news of the Poser 13 Release.
* Aiming for a March 2023 release.
* Queue Manager will now support the PostFX processing panel, and also GPU rendering. Useful for animators.
* “Both CPU and GPU-based renders will be significantly faster using the updated SuperFly render engine.”
So that latter point means the newer Blender Cycles render-engine, of which Superfly is a re-branded version. Cycles has “a massive performance boost” back in April 2021, and I’d assume that’s the version Poser 13 will be upgrading to.
I would imagine that the very under-powered PostFX processing panel will also get some care and attention. It’s the obvious and logical thing to enhance, in terms of building on Poser’s unique market niche in fast and commercially-useful non-photoreal rendering from 3D (e.g. real-time Comic-book mode and Sketch rendering).
