    You can't actually POSE in this program. It only has a few built-in poses, which you can't edit.

    Not intended for figure, manipulation, or scene setup and rendering. Only for figure creation and rigging, this is more similar to Blender than Poser, but Blender is perhaps the most powerful free 3D "creation" software.

    Poser is for animating 3D models. This only creates 3D models.
