Problem with Poser programs after update?

There is a Windows 10 update that is creating a problem with Poser. The following is the "cure" and the number of the update being naughty.

Thank you thelufias for this information of how to stop it.


I recall reading in here someone saying that they had a problem with Poser due to a Windows Update listed as KB3132372.  That IS a Windows 10 update and has caused havoc with many other programs....including my Incredimail.....so here is the cure....

Windows 10:

1.      Go to: Control Panel/All Control Panel Items/Programs and Features
2.      Select 'View Installed updates' on the left menu
3.      Select update KB3132372 that is listed under Microsoft Windows, and click 'Uninstall a program'.
4.      Once it's done, please restart your computer.

How to flush DNS in Mac computers 10.6 to Yosemite+

Reset the DNS cache in OS X

Learn how to reset (flush) the DNS cache.


About the DNS cache

OS X keeps a local cache of resolved DNS queries for a time defined by the DNS server. Sometimes it might be necessary to reset the cache immediately and re-query a DNS server. For example, you might need to do this if you are a network or server administrator and an entry on your DNS server has recently changed.

If your Mac isn't using the latest DNS entries from your server, you can restart your Mac to update its cached information. If you need to update DNS entries on a server using OS X and you can't restart the server, use the terminal commands below for the version of OS X you're using.

OS X Yosemite and later

Use the following Terminal command to reset the DNS cache in OS X v10.10.4 or later:

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

Use the following Terminal command to reset the DNS cache in OS X v10.10 through v10.10.3:

sudo discoveryutil mdnsflushcache

OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion

Use the following Terminal command to reset the DNS cache in OS X v10.9.5 and earlier:

sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder

Mac OS X Snow Leopard

Use the following Terminal command to reset the DNS cache in OS X v10.6 through v10.6.8:

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

Modo 902

Create something new

MODO is a complete solution for design exploration, game content creation, character animation, and the production of high-quality advertising images. Created with artistic workflows in mind, MODO puts the fun back into digital content creation and design. Artists and designers are free to explore and focus on creative efforts that maximize quality output in less time.

Faster iterations

With powerful modeling and sculpting tools, and an advanced photorealistic viewport and preview renderer, MODO lets you iterate faster for better concept and production models, look development and interactive design reviews.

Consistency guaranteed

With consistent workflows, modular tool assembly and an intuitive UI, MODO lets you apply the knowledge you gain in your first days of exploration to fulfilling the most complex, sophisticated tasks down the road.

Out-of-the-box value

MODO offers modeling, sculpting, painting, effects and animation tools in one cohesive, easy-to-use content creation package, with unlimited network rendering capabilities and MeshFusion Boolean tools included.

Seamless pipeline integration

MODO fits right into your pipeline, with Python and C++ APIs; a Python TD SDK; a fully customizable UI; and support for industry-standard formats like OpenSubdiv, OpenColorIO, OpenEXR, OpenVDB and Alembic.


Create something better

When it comes to modeling and sculpting, MODO's renowned toolset just got better. Now a fully integrated feature included since MODO 901, MeshFusion takes away the challenge of complex and frustrating Boolean operations, making it easier to consistently produce high-quality models. Add to that topological symmetry, layered multi-resolution sculpting, new Slice and Cap options, Quad Fill, Linear and Radial Align, Multi-slice and more, and polygon modeling is faster, easier and more efficient than ever.


MODO 902: reality reimagined

In a world where the lines between what's real and what's digital are increasingly blurred, MODO 902 adds a focused new toolset that lets you easily match the authentic with the synthetic—so you can create everything from set extensions to product placement shots in less time.


Camera matching

Easily match a 3D camera to a background image just by drawing on screen and using one-click set-ups: you can match position, rotation, focal length and resolution, and estimate lens distortion.


Projecting images

Choose from the Projection Texture to project images into a given texture channel, and the Projection Shader to replicate the exact pixels of the real-world image unaffected by your scene's lighting and shading.


Projection Ink

Use MODO's intuitive brush-based tools to paint projected textures directly onto UV-mapped geometry. Blend images from multiple cameras to create seamless maps that work from any angle.


Camera Plane modifier

Create an image plane with a single click; MODO will adjust size, position and rotation to keep it filling the screen as you adjust the depth. Repeat for easy multi-layered compositions and animations.


Physical Sun setup

Use image metadata—location, direction, time of day—to automatically match MODO's Physical Sun to the real-world setting. Photographed and virtual shadows will align with just a few button clicks.

Flame Painter Pro

The possibilities  of creations with this program are only limited by your imagination. When first opening the program you see the window with the different types of things to try.

WHAT is Flame Painter?

Flame Painter is a unique paint software that lets you easily create original artworks, light effects, unconventional design or fantastic backgrounds with fantastic procedural brushes.

WHY was it created?

Original flame algorithm was created by Peter Blaškovič within the 'I am an Artist' project in 2009. He believes that "Everyone can be an artist, we just need the tools which become the inspiration for creativity."

WHO is it for?

Today it is used by thousands of professional CG artists, designers, enthusiasts or children in school who want to create original artworks and we have had nothing but great feedback.


The images below just show you a little of what you can do. I only just installed it to give it a go and have not even touched its surface...that will take more time and practice but for basic things it is ready to go out of the box.

The first image is just a background from justmel's Fantasy's Places background set found at FantasiesRealm Market. I added a new layer then using the pen tool I added some blue around the rocks, edges of water and in the fore front water area followed by blurring that layer, voila a setting of overlay and it looks like a wonderful mist has appeared.

Flame Painter Pro 3

The second image  I added a bit of light orange to the top of the back tree line, overlayed,blurred and that hilighted that area.Again I was just playing around to see what it could do, so I added some green strokes to the grass then around the edge of the tree on the right again blurred it and overlayed the layer and the tree now looked highlighted.

Flame Painter Pro 3

The 3rd image is just a filled layer with black color then to show what the strokes can do. the top curvy ones are the ribbon tool, the written text is using the pen tool with the last being the flame tool...that is the one for the wavy lined backgrounds you find on computer screens...neato.

Flame Painter Pro 3

Last but not least there is the image showing you the interface as soon as you open the program. Everything is there to click and try.


Flame Painter Pro 3


Once you get more proficient in using Flame Painter you can grab even more brushes to use. You can go to FlamePainter to grab some new brushes also, there are 100+ to choose from.

Flame Painter Pro 3

There are many things to try with FlamePainter, like the name implies, you can paint with it, use procedural brushes to add lighting effects, swirlies for the fantasy aspect of an image, create your own computer 3D backgrounds and so much more.

It is surely a great investment for your creativity arsenal.
