    Due to bandwidth limitations I can't download it. :rolleyes:

    Some notes to consider:
    - You have to register, and it asks for a shipping address... but no credit card.
    - It's a download.
    - It's not Universal, but only requires a 500 MHz G4, so I'm hoping for the best.

    Fortunately, it says I'll be able to download it after September 4th for free, so I'm not that concerned.

    YES!
    Thank you. :)

    I lied- I could find Bryce, just not where to download it. So this is a big help.
    Plus, free stuff is always great. :D

    This may be a scam

    Has anyhone been able to sucessfully download Poser?
    After 10 hours the download broke, with no way to continue.

    It paused indefinitely after an hour or so with only 15 % finished.

    Hehe. This is cool. I'm having fun with Bryce. Thanks for the link. There's nothing quite like staring at a 3D image render for hours.... yay for my iBook G4 :D

    What's with the "Show Nudity" tick box on the registration page - are we going to get spammed with porn for this? :confused:

    Sheesh 5 K/s download speed. It's like being back on dialup again.

    FYI, Bryce is free as long as you don't actually want to run it :)

    "NOTE: Bryce 5.0 does not run under Mac OS X Tiger (Mac OS 10.4 and above)."

    Wow, two kinds of software to download for free. Which one would you recommend? Bryce or Poser? I only need one so what's the easiest to learn? :)

    Some of the model sets have 'anatomically correct' models. So the previews for them show 'nudity'. (Albeit computer rendered nudity.) Some of the more prudish types might not want to be exposed to rendered nudity.

    Then I'll have to give it a try :) Hopefully, reports that it won't run in Rosetta are also false. But I'm on G4 for now anyway.

    EDIT: Bryce will not launch for me in Tiger (PBG4). It sends me to a page to my serial number... but never says what to DO with said serial number. And clicking the menu bar crashes the app.

    Oh, well, free is free!
