A beta version of the Poser Pro Pack plug-in for Cinema 4D XL has been shown at Siggraph 2001 in Los Angeles. The plug-in, developed by Curious Labs, Egisys and Maxon, lets users integrate Poser scenes directly into Cinema 4D XL and manipulate them, as well as render the scenes for print, Web or video.
The companies say that the plug-in with let users take completed Poser animations into Cinema 4D XL, with the Poser scenes' animation and texture data retained through a unique hosting approach deployed by the plug-in. Cinema 4D XL's standard interface controls will let users edit textures and colours, as well as set transparency and reflection parameters. It is expected to start shipping in September.
