These software packages are either free or affordable and support the Poser paradigm.

 

Poser

Poser

The original product that started the Poser Paradigm. Loads of functionality. This is the only product that will allow you to save poser formatted files, which is important if you plan to create and distribute content for others.

Carrara

Carrara

The most fully functional 3D product that you can buy at an affordable price. Carrara supports Poser formatted content libraries, plus has a built in physics engine, and powerful modeling capabilities. Carrara 8 Pro is my personal tool of choice.

DAZ Studio

DAZ Studio

The only free software to support Poser formatted content libraries. You will be amazed at what you can get for free, plus you can add valuable functionality with affordable plugins. DAZ Studio is the gateway software for the Poser community.
