Daz/Poser – Users/Creators

Posted on Thursday, August 18th, 2011 at 3:34 pm

Now that Smith-Micro has come out and stated that they are not going to implement the Genesis technology, there has been a large uproar over the split, focusing on user issues.  The one thing that stands out to me is the DS side that keeps saying “As soon as vendors start creating products for Genesis, it will take off big time.”


How many content creators who have been using Poser as their content creation tool are going to plunk down the $430 plus several hundred more for the essential plugs, spend lots of time learning to create content in the new system, to try and sell products to a market that has been cut in half by the exclusiveness of Genesis?  The profit margin is already bad enough catering to both camps.  How many are going to undertake the expense, learning curve, and reduced sales to make the leap?  That will tell the story.
