  1. There are a lot out there to try, some free, some not. I found this one works quite well for me, though it uses an older version of Blender and Python. It is free. The page has a link to the tutorial which was helpful at showing you what to do. http://tentacolor.com/2008/06/06/tutorial-sl-animation-for-blender-newbs/ Avastar looks very interesting and Machinimatrix site has a lot of great info. I may eventually look into this one but am not sure of the current cost. http://blog.machinimatrix.org/avastar/ Daz had an offer out earlier in the year for their programs for free so if you managed
  2. What Medhue said. That is a clean install. Phoenix/Firestorm wiki has nice list of how to make sure you got everything and what to do if you want to keep some things. If you have multiple viewers, I have found it is best to set up separate cache folders for each viewer as well. http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_clean_reinstall
  3. I just ran into SL to see if I could upload an new animation I just finished and had no problem at all. Have you tried reinstalling your viewer with a clean install to see if that clears the issue? If that doesn't work you may have to file a ticket.
  4. I am assuming you have checked to make sure your file is a .bvh file and that it is under 30 seconds in length. If it is a very complex animation the file may be too large to upload, though SL will give you an error message for that. Start with looking at your bvh file first.
  5. Though I do not create animations for sale, I do make very complex custom ones for the troupe I perform with. It takes a LOT of time and detail work to make something of quality that loops seamlessly. So I totally understand the pricing and the permissions you see out there. I have no issues paying the prices for dances I think are excellent and I consider them to be a very good value as we use them when performing. It definitely is not a monopoly because anyone can make animations if they care to. Yes, it takes time to learn. So can scripting, creating textures etc. As Medhue said, it is t
  6. Check out this site which is for Blender version 2.49. There are the appropriate downloads in the tutorial including the proper Python version you need that works with this setup and the BVH exporter itself. When you open it up you will have the correct SL avatars to work with. http://tentacolor.com/sl-animation-for-blender-newbs/ I have been using this version the most because it is easiest for me in the type of animations I am doing. I can get a much finer amount of detail in motions than I have found with any other program so far. I will say it does have a learning curve but if you al
  7. Just like in RL, you need to find the things you have interests in and just go do them. First and foremost do things that satisfy you in SL and that you enjoy. Surprisingly when you get involved, help out, work on a project with a group of people that is when you start making connections and good friends etc. Hobbies are a great starting point or find a group that is pretty active within your interests and get involved helping out. People come and go that is a fact in SL and in RL so you have to expect it will happen and be thankful that person was part of your life for a while. Meeting new
  8. You could put a notecard in your root prim explaining who made what and who to contact if there is an issue. You might also contact the creator of the linkset to see if this way would be ok with them or if what you originally did with your root prim was ok. Would be worth the peace of mind....
  9. Considering community members took it upon themselves to organize this and get it set up, and considering how many have volunteered and continue to volunteer and ALL working hard to make this event happen and the community responded by a landslide of applications to participate it isn't surprising to find some miscommunications or hurt feelings happened because some were not selected to get a plot. So if you can't get a plot (no matter the reason why), volunteer, participate and give in other ways. Don't sit and be a ballbabyweeda over your misfortune. This is about giving to the community. S
  10. In addition to the SL Destination Guide, SL9B will have a Celebration Hub, a special place you can get information on all the other birthday events going on around SL! Please send a notecard, 256x256 texture (preferably with the name and date of the event on it) and LM to DMom2K Darwin so we can get it in the Celebration Hub as well!
  11. Check out this link in Animations Thread. Daz 3D has a limited time offer of three programs for free. An excellent value and well worth the trouble of learning.
  12. Here is link to a posting that has the SL avatar mesh with .cr2 and .obj files and instructions on getting it into DAZ Studio properly.
  13. Thank you so much for this, OptimoMaximo! I will be looking forward to the file.
  14. I can imagine some noobs playing Linden Realms and maybe going, "Aw, gee is that all there is?" until someone runs by wearing something really cool (avatar or clothing) and they go "OOOH, me want that!" :smileyvery-happy:
