A brief note on Raffael for Poser, for the benefit of future searchers. I didn’t know this existed. Raffael is a flexible ‘base figure’ with several unique character morphs, and his Renderosity store page says he now ships free with Poser 11. He’s quite low-poly, but looks pleasing and ships with a great many sub-morphs.
To load after install, he’s not under !Raffael or Raffael or 3D Dream (the maker), in the Library listing. Actually buried deep, under…
Library | Figures tab || Figures folder | Raffael | 3Dream | Raffael
Also loads in DAZ Studio…
Poser | Figures | 3DDream.
To make the most of this freebie you should install his vital Raffael – Freebies collection 1, which among others includes neanderthals (male and female), a stylised doll, and two unique youth presets (unique for Poser).
Here we see my quick render of the Neanderthal with Creepy Kid hair. Backdrop photo by Toby Speight.
After install, the freebies are then all found under Poses | ! Raffael with a good range of figure types as one-click morphs. There are also MATs and more, all nicely organised. Renders in SuperFly with no problems. Has a paid but rather fabulous male skin pack along with others.
Takes Hiro 3 action poses, I found, more or less. But make sure you first save a T-Pose to get back to. There’s no T-pose in the freebie pack. Elbow crease-bending is definitely not great on some poses, like many older figures. Otherwise anatomically correct, though.
Commercial renders OK on all content.
Raffeal appears to have a completely unique face rig, since none of my existing expression presets will move it at all. There are many face part control dials, but no dials for expressions (happy, sad etc).
What this (now free) figure totally lacks is clothing, other than a basic one-click photo-mapped body suit (to remove this, reload the skin MAT in Poses | ! Raffael). And there’s no CrossDresser licence for Raffael either, so clothing can’t be had that way. Only by wrestling with the Fitting Room. Ugh. Such a pity… what a waste of a nice friendly figure. There is one basic clothing maker’s ‘merchant resource’ for sale on Renderosity, though, for making basic clothing.
