Custom avatar bone positions

Recommended Posts


Lately I've been trying to learn how to make custom mesh avatars for SL, but I've run into a problem I can't seem to figure out on my own. As far as I know, it should be possible to do what I am trying to do, so hopefully someone can share some much needed knowledge about the subject.

The issue I'm having is editing the SL armature to to fit my mesh, which possible, results in some weird bone deformation/offsets in SL on import. Judging from the picture i've attached, the problem seems to be the edited bones not storing rotation in world, where scale and position seems to function just fine.

As a result of the bones not being rotated, it causes my avatars legs to spread out in a funny manner (which amusing, isn't very useful! ??) see second picture.

AFAIK, all joints need to be at default T-pose rotation before exporting.

Medhues A-Pose to T-Pose video might help.


That actually did the trick! Thank you very much. The problem was my bones were not aligned to the T-pose on export, and when I adjusted them, the problems went away!
