Curious Labs will upgrade Poser, its 3D figure posing and animation solution, to version 4.0.3 in the autumn.

Curious Labs is staffed by the same core engineering and development staff who originally developed Poser when it began as a MetaCreations product. The product itself will be relaunched at Siggraph, New Orleans at the end of July.

Poser 4.0.3 should cost £250 when it ships in the UK, with upgrades available for registered owners of Poser 3, reports Digit.
