•        Corrected box tracking behavior for Poser Unimesh figures
•        Group editor: Now displaying selected polygons in low light situations


Final Rendering


•        Improved rendering of geometry with invalid normals
•        Fixed logic error that could cause incorrect renders or instability with complex compound shader nodes
•        FireFly: Fixed possible inaccuracies in alpha channel output
•        Fixed missing pixels in leftmost and topmost row in some FireFly renders (some residual artifacts might remain in rare cases)
•        Improved stability when thread affinity was set to disable cores in Task Manager (Windows only)
•        Fixed case where combining subdivided geometry and 3D motion blur would cause instability
•        Refractions beyond the first bounce now respect the IOR




•        Animation palette: Fixed instabilities with collapsed states of items with large numbers of objects
•        Animation palette: Fixed drawing problems
•        Animation palette: Now drawing zoomScroll icon to expose horizontal time sheet scaling feature
•        Animation palette: Improved performance of changing parameter values on figures with many body parts
•        Fixed case where keyframes in layers at negative frame numbers would cause instability upon loading
•        Make Movie: Now allowing third party codecs to be specified in preset, and showing related configuration dialogs (Windows only)
•        Bullet Physics: Constraint prop position now regenerated when loading figure with simulation


Figure Creation


•        Morphing tool: Create actions now exclude locked objects
•        Morphing tool: Create actions no longer operate on hidden objects
•        Morphing tool Create mode: Changed Restore action sensitivity by a factor of 10 (e.g. new 0.5 = old 0.05)
•        Vertex Weights palette: Sample weight mode now implemented for figures
•        Now preserving joint information on parent left behind when deleting bones
•        Fixed a problem with undo of animated joint origin modifications
•        Dependency editor: Now forcing ‘Teach’ mode to off when closing palette
•        Fixed problem where attempting to delete morphs from figures with parented figures could cause empty hierarchy dialog
•        Fitting room: Now offering ‘Zero prop’ and ‘Keep deformation’ options for props
•        Fitting room: Now respecting object visibility when creating working props
•        Fitting room: Create figure (‘Transfer morphs’ disabled) no longer transfers superfluous parameters to root body part
•        Fitting room: Now verifying UV indices to prevent instability upon creating figure from fitted subdivided object
•        Figure > Copy Morphs From… dialog now sorts parameters alphabetically




•        Added methods to mark a scene as changed and to determine whether or not a scene was changed since the last save
•        Added method for getting current document path
•        Added notifications for camera changed and lights changed
•        Added Python access to subdivided geometry
•        Added ALLOW_PYTHON_PYC option to Poser.ini/PoserPrefs to enable creation of PYC files for add-on developers
•        Fixed instability when wxPython scripts were requesting italic fonts (Mac OS X only)
•        Now skipping Fitting room props in add-on notification callbacks (prevents add-ons from registering spurious object deletions)




•        Added ‘Preserve existing material names’ export option to disable creation of unique material names
•        Improved stability by sanitizing file name before calling file chooser dialog (Mac OS X only)
