If you have Colm's GIStudio, you will need to install the render presets coming with it in this folder:
Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Poser\8.0
If your OS is Windows 7 x64 you will not find the folder because it does now point to c:\users\%username%\appdata\roaming.
Here is a quick way to install them:
1. Type %appdata% in the the Start menu search box.
2. Roaming will appear above the Start menu search box.
3. Click the word (Roaming) to enter the roaming folder and locate the Poser directory in the window that just opened on your right.
4. Click Poser, then 8.0.
5. Paste your render Presets folder (RenderPresets and its content) in 8.0
It is all you have to do...
Now start Poser 8, look at the render settings (Render menu\Render Settings) and load a preset. You should see the 4 GIStudio render presets:
- GI Draft Quality
- GI High Quality
- GI low quality
- GI Medium Quality
If you use Poser Pro 2010 beta you just need to locate the Poser Pro folder (as in 4) and to paste your render Presets folder in it.
It is anyway possible to locate the Application Data folder very quickly with the same command in earlier versions of Windows like XP and Vista. Just follow the same steps to install the render presets.
I hope that this short explanation will be of some use.
