    I'm brand new to animation. I want a program that I can easily create a visual for story lines with characters without the hassle/knowdledge of how to create characters/environment from scratch.

    I read that Poser 2010 Pro has a large library of characters environments compared to Poser 8. The price tag is expensive and want to check on anyone's experience with the two or some other program. Thanks in advance.

    There doesn't appear to be an animation forum, so this might be the closest option. The lack of response seems to indicate either general disinterest, or that nobody has a good answer.

    Speaking for myself, I've had some issues with Poser Pro in terms of speed and responsiveness. Since my needs are mainly for creating stills for illustration purposes, and not animation, I tend to prefer Poser 7 because it's quicker for me. I can't really say anything about character development (not my specialty). I do know that lots of people use Poser professionally (though it's hardly ever the total solution), so it's not a bad application.

    You might try exploring sites like ConceptArt.org, where quite a few professionals hang out, or perhaps Renderosity.com.

    That's about all I can offer. Good luck.
