B-17G Flying Fortress (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 7/11/09 Rating: 9 (out of 10)
This is a very fine model of a great historical aircraft. THe only thing I would change is the animation for the propellers; they all rotate at once, making it difficult to animate the dramatic way the engines were started one at a time like the original. Otherwise, I highly reccomend this one for WW II history buffs.
 
Lockheed Constellation (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 7/11/09 Rating: 8 (out of 10)
I had actually found a free mesh for this online, but after considering the amount of time I would have spent editing the mesh and rigging it for animation, I decided that for $10, this was a good buy. The "Connie" has always been one of my favorite aircraft, and while the detail on this model is not quite as much as one would like, for the low price it is definitely more than acceptable.
 
Eerie Asylum (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 5/29/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
Ever the master of mood and atmosphere, Ratracer yet again hits it out of the park with this one. Get it, even if you don`t think you`ll need it right away - this set lends itself to a wide range of scenes.
 
Dirty Police Station (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 4/4/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
A nice compliment for the Film Noir Detective Office. With a bit of modification (using different light fixtures and furnishing) this works for any period from the 1930s to the present.
 
Decaying Alley (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 3/31/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
I cannot think of a better setting for murder most foul - a great compliment for other ratracer products such as the Dirty Police Station and the Film Noir Detective`s Office.
 
Mediterranean Coffee Place (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 3/31/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
This definitely brings back memories of my trip to the Aegean and the kafeneos found in every Greek Island village. As is typical of ratracer products, there is close attention to detail. Definitely get this, regardless of whether or not you do Mediterranean scenes - this set would not be out of place in Southern California or even Mexico.
 
Dark Corridors (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/18/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
This is an excellent value, because you get four distincly different sets.
 
City Building (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/18/09 Rating: 9 (out of 10)
At $12, this might seem a bit high-priced, but the included light sets and cameras are great time-savers and really add to the value of an otherwise simple (but nicely detailed) prop. You can also change material settings if you want to create a row of these, and with a little ingenuity, it`s possible to add some interiors.
 
Alchemist Lab (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/18/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
This set is straight out of Doctor Faustus - and just the thing for rendering medieval and/or D&D art. Be warned - the detailed textures may tax lower-end machines or video cards. That understood, this gets two thumbs up from the Bard.
 
Slimy Sewers (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/18/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
Ratracer has a real knack for creating dark, eerie, sinister sets. This is a "must-have" for any fan of "film noir" or looking for the spookiest and/or most depressing-looking sets for their dark fantasies, this highly-detailed set is definitely for you.
 
Abandoned House Rooms (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/15/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
You don`t absolutely need this for the the Abandoned House set, but if you are doing a series of renders or animations, you`ll definitely want it. This adds a great deal to the original set and like all of ratracer`s products, is finely detailed, making it a bargain at twice the price. Just keep in mind that all this detail comes at a cost in terms of processing power, so make sure your video card, CPU and RAM is up to the task when it comes to rendering.
 
Abandoned House (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/14/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
If you are doing a Poser or DS remake of The Ghost And Mister Chicken or The Addams Family, you need this set. I have purchased many ratracer products over the past several months and never cease to be amazed at the levels of detail or ease of use. Highly recommended!
 
Old Style Building (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 2/14/09 Rating: 10 (out of 10)
I have purchased nearly 2 gigabytes of ratracer`s content over the past two years and have NEVER been disappointed. The detail is incredible and the .cr2s are set up to make animation exceptionally easy. It is true that some detail is lacking in the rooms, but this is very easy to add if you have furniture props and know your way around a UV and graphics editor. HIGHLY reccomended.
 
Titanic (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 9/13/08 Rating: 9 (out of 10)
Nicely detailed - and HUGE. At 66 MB (that`s the .obj file), this is not for every machine - it took almost a full minute to load with my 2.7 GHZ Duo Core machine running 4 GB of RAM and a RADEON X1600 with 512 MB of V-RAM. Moving the camera in Poser is cumbersome - you`ll want to use the parameter dials rather than the mouse. I have not yet attempted to load any human figures, but suspect that anything bigger than a basic P4 figure will probably cause most machines to choke. It would not load into Daz Studio on my machine. These issues understood, it renders quite nicely - even fairly close up. It`s a nice addition to any 3d artist`s nautical collection.
 
40 Ford Pickup (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 9/13/08 Rating: 8 (out of 10)
This model had less detail that I`d hoped, but is not bad for $12. Some different materials or a texture map for the dashboard would have been nice, but my main beef is the wheels, which are for a customized truck rather than a stock vehicle of 1940. I dealt with this by hiding the original wheels then putting my own tires/wheels in place - not a perfect solution, but it does the job if you prefer a more stock appearance. This also loads and renders in Daz Studio, but to my eyes, looks better in Poser. Tweaking the "surface settings" in DS may be required. Generally, there are better vintage vehicle models out there, but they cost twice as much. As long as you`re not rendering the interior too closely, this is a decent model for the price.
 
Steam Locomotive 2-6-4 (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 8/22/08 Rating: 9 (out of 10)
Very detailed and highly reccomended. There`s even a basic cab. The only things I would like to have seen are (A)some texture maps and (B) some type of Python script to simplify the animation. All the parts indeed move, but it is necessary to animate each separate component (there are many), making animation and posing of the drivers, side rods, etc. very cumbersome.
 
Coal Tender (for Poser)
By: BardCoennius 8/22/08 Rating: 9 (out of 10)
A nice-looking model - am not sure why this wasn`t included with the Steam Locomotive 2-6-4. Also, it`s a bit large when loaded. I scaled mine to 90% overall and 106% along the x-axis in order to make it look more to scale with the Steam Locomotive 2-6-4. You`ll also want to put "Y-Tran" at 1.05 so it sits on the tracks properly. What worked for me the best was to load the tender, position it behind the Steam Locomotive, scale it to the correct proportions, parent it to the Steam Locomotive then save it to the library, overwriting the original .cr2 file. Textures: The MAT 3 matches the Steam Locomotive best, and the MAT 1 looks very sharp (a matching texture for the Steam Loco would be nice). The MAT 2 is a loss. I docked it a point because I wasn`t able to use it "out of the box," but with a little tweaking, its a nice model - obviously a lot of work went into it.
