What exactly is Poser “Debut?” I see its offered in the App Store.
Is this a rebranding of Poser 9, or is it version 9 with some features disabled?

At one time, Poser had gone long in the tooth, but they seemed to have refreshed it.

Current version of Poser is 10x.
There are various tiers (Pro) & prices in the product lines & its worth paying attention to those. There are some nice applications offered by the company in MotionArtist & MangaStudio, but you have to know what you are buying.

The trick is knowing what minimum OS is supported by the software. Pre-9 versions of Poser do not work on Lion or later.

What is this nonsense? I wanted to try a demo of this program. I go to their site, I sign up, and "step 2" requires me to accept one offer, such as "sign up for a credit card," or "Netflix," etc.

I can't simply obtain a demo and make a decision? I have to literally sign up for something.

Ordinarily, I would just make a comment instead of giving a rating, but this is outrageous.

Click on the "Free Download" button on Smith Micro's home page (linked above); then click on "Download Trial" on the next page.

Note that they require a credit or debit card number but do not charge your account unless you do not cancel within 30 days.

(Your "step 2" is an option by which you can acquire Poser Debut free.)

Also note that the above $29.99 is the Mac App Store price; the version available directly from Smith Micro costs $49.99. I've got absolutely -0- idea what, if any, differences there are between the two.

Addendum - pretty soon life itself is by subscription!
Or with a credit card on file.

If you got past the download quandary...
Are the meshes in version 9 triangular or quads?

That was an issue with older versions - in that Blender & a lot of other applications didn’t deal well with triangular faces, which made porting models across applications awkward, though Blender now may accept both.

Why Poser Debut?

The Most Affordable Way to Learn 3D

If you've ever been interested in animation and design, but can't afford to spend an arm and a leg on expensive software and content, then Poser Debut is the perfect product for you. Poser Debut offers a wide range of 3D tools at a fraction of the cost of other 3D programs.

The User Interface Makes 3D Easy

All the tools and controls you'll need are simple to understand. Just click and drag to pose figures, move lights and cameras, or drag content right from the library into your scene.

Pose 3D Characters with Natural Bending in Every Joint

To create great art you need 3D figures that bend accurately, so each body part moves as it would in real life. Poser Debut is designed with a powerful rigging system for realistic posing. Skin folds and stretches naturally. Since all Poser figures come pre-rigged, you simply load a figure into the scene, grab a body part and pose it. The rigging system does the work and you do the fun part: Posing and animating.

Click and Drag to Move Everything in the Scene in Real Time

Everything in a Poser Debut scene, from lights and cameras to figures and body parts, can be moved with a simple click and drag. Interact with your scene in real time 3D.

Get Started Fast with 2GB of Free Content

With over 2GB of included content you'll be creating 3D images in no time. Over 70 ready-to-pose professional quality characters and hundreds of props, furniture, scenery items and more are included. Just drag and drop content into your scene from the library. No need to build your own! Click on a clothing item and drop it onto a figure and instantly the clothing will follow every pose. Most figures come with facial controls to make eyes blink and mouths smile, fully posable hands and feet, and realistic texture maps. Plus you can edit any pose or scene element and save it to reuse.

Create 3D Art & Animation like a Pro

Poser Debut's Firefly rendering engine is powerful enough to create art and animation that looks like it came from a Hollywood studio, yet is simple to use from your first draft to your final masterpiece. Within minutes you can start rendering 3D scenes that will impress.

Learn 3D Basics with the In-App Project Guide
