Poser

Poser Pro is a powerful 3D character creator and animation tool, and includes ready to use content for graphics professionals, illustrators, animators and designers. For 20 years Poser has been the preferred 3D animation software and character creator for rendering static or animated digital content. Poser Pro includes robust 3D character creation tools including clothing fitting, morph target creation, weight mapping tools, network rendering and the full collection of Poser 10 features, but in a native 64-bit application. The included set of PoserFusion 2014 plug-ins are perfect for content integration with Lightwave, CINEMA 4D, 3ds Max and Autodesk Maya, as well as Z-brush via our Go-Z support.

What works

This software runs smoothly in Linux Mint 19.2, in WINE 4.01. On this date (07-Aug-2019) the Library works in PP2014 32-bit, using the Adobe-Air install available here:

https://www.noobslab.com/2015/...

Navigating in the viewport, rendering, and the cloth sim work quickly and smoothly on an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor, 16 gig RAM and installed on an SSD. The graphics card is a GeForce GTX 1050Ti. I add this information as the user's mileage may vary based on the hardware. Prior issues with dialogues hiding behind the main window (years ago) have all been resolved.

For preview, the display engine is OpenGL, with Enable Hardware shading and shadows are both ticked.

For rendering, I use manual settings, with cast shadows, subsurface scattering and raytracing checked. Raytrace bounces are set to 2, indirect light quality to 7, pixel samples to 7, minimum shading rate at .95 max bucket size at 32, minimum displacement bounds at .008, no tone mapping, gamma correction at 2.2 and post filter type to box. I have Use Displacement Maps checked.

What does not

What doesn't work is the Library in the 64-bit version of Poser Pro 2014. Although I installed the 64-bit version of Adobe Air from the above-mentioned website, only the 32-bit version of Poser Pro 2014 loads the Library. The 64-bit version of Poser complains about Flash not being installed. 

Shutting down the 32-bit version of Poser Pro 2014 causes a software hang on shutdown. This is a consistent behaviour.

Workarounds

Semidieu's Library Manager 2x or Dimension3D products are Python scripts that will provide a replacement to the native Library.

I can force-quit the frozen 32-bit program in Mint, trivial - if a bit inelegant - to do.
