The current version of OpenGl is 4.5, and will run on just about any computer. The extensions used in a workstation card are to do things a bit faster. It is still opengl, but the video drivers handle some of the calls differently. Texturing the backside of a poly without duplicating it, etc.
If a video card in the computer only supports 4, all higher version calls are done on the CPU. Windows supports all versions of OpenGl, even if the system does not have a video card. It just wont be anywhere near as fast if it is CPU bound. Your cell phone can do OpenGl, but it obviously wont be as fast as an 8 core desktop with a newer GPU. OpenGl is basically a fall back system, if your video cards cant do it, the cpu can.
After Effects, etc, will be faster on a K6000 than a GTX1080, but the K6000 will cost substantially more, about 4000.00 more. It is far more cost effective to just double up on GTX cards, than to drop 4k plus on a video card if you want the same speed on a few of the many things that cards do. The advantage of a workstation card, usually ends at the next generation chip release.
As far as reverse compatibility, After Effects will run on a just about any system, even if it defaults to all CPU based calculations. OpenGl has been around for a while now, and is the most supported Graphics API going. Making hardware that would not run it, would put most companies out of business.
Just to sum it up, a GTX1080 is faster than a Titan on most benchmarks. Overclock the 1080 above the factory clocks, and an overclocked Titan is left in the dust. (Gtx 10 series cards all overclock based on temperature and load, and you can increase the overclock on many of them as well) The 10 series gpus are far more power efficient, and generate less heat than previous generation nvida gpus as well, another plus in a notebook.
@jonboy72 I have found the serial number on Renderosity, the site where I purchased the product. Thanks for your help, I solved my problem. It's just that the serial number was in a text color I could barely see.
@ghostship Ohhhh, that's why I had a problem getting Color That Site to save the colors I wanted for background and foreground here in the COMPOSE box.
It worked fine at R'osity, but this one didn't save. I'm going to have to figure out what on the "home page" to change so that it works in this text box too, because this is the only place on the site I really want to change. Thanks for the tip.
You can use MMD exports in Poser - I have. If you want to create or modify MMD models, you need to use another type of software called modelling software, such as Blender 3D ( which is free !). I personally use Terawell's Design Doll software to create anime-style 3D people, then clean up the mesh inside Shade 3D. Then I export as OBJ and rigg inside Poser Pro 11. I also use Blender 3D with auto-rigging and export as FBX, which Poser pro 11 can import. Another rigging alternative I use is the online and free service by Mixamo, which again, uses FBX format which Poser can import. Animations must be imported with the FBX file, of as BVH, but a lot of clean up usually required. Please see my gallery at http://ibr-remote.deviantart.com for examples of Poser using imported anime-style and MMD models and pose-able as well. My journal there also has notes which give pointers on what works and work-arounds in the transformation process. And yes, I have used Clip Paint Studio Pro models inside Poser.
You can't even ignore individual users with Discourse because the developers don't believe that you should be able to ignore specific people
I don't mind that since I never ignore anybody. Even the most complete idiot can sometimes say something useful, and anyway, reality is as it is, blocking it won't change it. -shrug-
they also want the experience to be more like you're on twitter or some other social sites instead of a forum, seriously...
Oh my. "Social networking" is the disease of these days. I'm pretty sure I'll live to see the fad pass. IT fads have been popping up regularly for years, and slowly going the way of the dodo: Thin clients, Java (and so on)...
SM should have gone with XenForo, it's basically a rebooted vBulletin without the bugs and security issues.
Or phpBB, which somehow got out of fashion despite being quite reliable and free. But it's too late to discuss this now, now we need to make the best of what we have.
I'm very happy we finally got a working Poser forum, no matter the software.
Image re-sizing has been disabled.
It may have some negative implications to layout....if it doesn't behave properly, we'll switch it on again.
Edit: image preview was being generated with 760px limit, clicking on the image opened the real one.
Main reasons for image-preview are: cellular data traffic issues with large images and layout problems.
Looks like your connection to Graphics Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
