[...] what works if we want people to attend to something? Cathy Moore has one solid answer: appeal to emotions. In some sense, our brains are managing by exception. We pay attention to things that are striking [...]

Sure, sure. "Poser is plastic." Yeah, when you use a stock character right out of the box, no textures, no hair, no nothing, it looks plastic. Browse some of the poser art sites, however, and you'll see what Poser can really do. The more effort you put into making the character realistic, with hair, skin textures, clothing, and so ono, the more realistic they become. And more, they do whatever you need done. You don't have to search through a stock photo archive or hire someone to try to take a picture of someone else standing in the pose you want and wait three days for them to do it and find out that when they're done none of the photos was the position you wanted so you wasted fifteen hundred bucks hiring a photographer and a studio and a model. **** that. Get it done in Poser in ten minutes and move on with your project.

Hmm...I don't know about this "poser" folks...pretty plastic-ish, don't ya think? I can snap some digi snapshots of "real people" I work with and clean em up in photoshop (I won't tell them I "cleaned-them up" )he he he....--Seems to work better if we are in a jam.

[...] 快来学学我的课程啦! Cathy Moore贴了个“大笑猫(lolcat)”(译注:详见此链接介绍)在线课程出来,使我捧腹大笑。也请你看看Cathy Moore对Poser 的介绍,这是一种制作照片无需存储的方式。消息引自Jeff Cobb. Cathy Moore, Making Change September 7, 2007 [原文链接] [Tags: Traditional and Online Courses] [参与评论] [...]

Thanks for the comments. Tom, I'll keep using Poser, at least to create still images. You can see the interface and some demos of what Poser can do at this site: I edited Sydney and her friends with a tiny fraction of the tools shown.

Good post. William Horton does something similar in one of his demos on his site. Are you going to continue to use it? It'll be neat to see what you do.

"That was after I spent another more painful 45 minutes figuring out how to use the software." If it's any comfort, Eric Kandel (along with many others) tells us that learning pretty much requires a certain amount of tension or stress. I keep telling myself I'm building new neurons and strengthening their connections with the existing ones. Sometimes that works... Very good for 90 minutes (you have to count that learning-curve). Sydney reminds me of Persis Khambatta in the first Star Trek movie. Must be the hair.
