Every time I come here to check up on things, my eyes divert to that generic avatar that's up for the group.  I'd had some ideas on a design, but I've been distracted with other projects and such, so I ask if anyone has any ideas for one, drop me a line or submit the idea here and we can all vote on it.

Hi guys, I'm a beginner to 3d, animation, as well as Poser. However, i'm planning on really immersing myself in this field as a hobby (creating 3d pin-ups, animations.. both erotic and non-erotic) and was wondering if anyone could answer a few questions of mine?

Question 1:
Here is the computer i built 3 years ago along with its specs, is this good enough for doing poser level graphics/animations/rendering? does it barely fit the requirement? or is it fine for a beginner right now, but would probably need to upgrade once i am more serious about my craft? If there's a need for upgrade... do i need to upgrade the graphic card, get more ram? or maybe a solid-state-drive hard drive? which part of 3d graphic/animation require a more high end graphic card? and what will actually lessen the time required for rendering? will a solid state help speed things up at all?

My Hardware:
Intel i7 930 @2.8 GHz 2.79 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) 6.00 GB
64 Bit Win 7
GA-X58A-UD3R Gigabyte Motherboard with six DDR3 Memory slots (max of 24 GIG i believe)
Western Digital Caivar Black Hard Drive
MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Question 2:
Poser Pro 2012 will be the software i will be learning, but i've often heard poser people talking about utilizing other high end software for rendering, postwork, etc. What are some good high end software/applications that are good for enhancing your 3d design/image/animation from poser?

I know some people use 3dstuidomax, Cinema4d, Vue for rendering, but what's the difference between the rendering from these high end software? and how does one differ from the other? Do people mainly use them just for the rendering? or do they work on the skin/texture of the character design from these software for the more realistic look?

If anyone has the time to shed some light on this subject, i would greatly appreciate it. Which application/software is best for what job? Because i've heard of so many big names being tossed around.... software such as 3dstudiomax, cinema4d, vue, zbrush, blender, bryce.

I know this is probably not something i need to know right now since i'm just starting, but i've always been curious about this and would love to understand the difference uses and why some people prefer to utilize some of these appications for certain job in their Poser creations.

Question 3:
Was wondering if anyone care to share some of their favorite web links regarding Poser

1. Poser community forums (other than this one of course)
2. A list of reputable vendors' web links (other than this one)
3. Good sites containing Poser tutorials (could be anything from the most basic aspect of poser such as the user interface... to the more advance category of animation)

Question 4:
What would be the most progressive way to learn Poser? obviously learn about the interface and undertand what each of the function does... but from your personal experience, how would you advice a beginner and the steps he/she should take in learning? learn the user interface, play around with character models, lighting? I guess what i'm asking is what would be the most efficient top down approach in learning mastering Poser?

thanks in advance!

Hi guys,
I used to download a lot of Poser content (packs) from a torrent site called demonoid, and there was a huge Poser community there. But due to the shutdown of demonoid recently, I was wondering if anyone know of another place? pm me ! :)
