  1. I havent been logged on for long time, yes its okay now , I can login, thanks
  2. I cannot login to aditi grid for bakes on mesh viewer, it says in grid status : "Investigating - We are currently preforming unscheduled maintenance on Profiles. While this maintenance is in progress, Profiles may be unavailable. Please watch this blog for updates. May 22, 09:09 PDT" I think it still keeps on
  3. hi, thanks for your feedback. I agree yes, I was going to check those services but just wondered if I can find someone in SL community : )
  4. hello, I ve been developing a mesh head+body. I am almost an expert at modeling & skin textures, and rigging but I dont know much about animations (mocap facial animations) so I need an animator, if anybody is interested in , pls im me inworlz & better send notecard about yourself I can pay what you d request or we can negotiate for other project options

  6. Hi I just heard about the Project is still on two days ago and I am excited about it. I thought the Project was cancelled, there was no news since last year. (perhaps I should have asked people) I hope the Project will not be canceled, even though I already spent so much time for making my alpha cuts and onion layers, (I am developing a mesh body) it looks like really reliefing to get rid of that onion layers on mesh bodies (mine have 4 of them) and what is more , alpha cuts (around 25 pieces each divided into 8 materials so over 200 parts- sliced mesh body. About mesh bodies usage. as everybody already know thats just so many stuff, x4 polycount, many texture loads, unnecessary, making SL experience just struggling for new users (I cannot imagine the feeling of new person in SL, trying to figure out the mesh body HUDs system, alpha blending masks, etc etc. I still remember when I was new in SL, that (mod copy trans) thing-adjustments was something needed to be figured out for me. someone explained it imho SL shouldnt be more complicated after an update, "mesh" itself was a great step after sculpts, but it came up with its complications (mesh body using) so far what I read in the forum (I am still trying to figure out ) this update seems like, it can provide back users and creators more simple way of SL experience compared to current one. now, I am changing my mesh body development path into this Project. I was going to start preparing the HUD but as I just mentioned above, I see this as a chance to make things all simplier.
  7. so far as I understand, it means that no need for alpha cuts anymore for a mesh body about solving poke issues while wearing a mesh cloth (for that body) I am about to finish developing my mesh body, if so I'd better not upload it as alpha cutted and remove from HUD options. Alpha cuts are having issues with high altitudes (that problem is solved but it is still better to have a one piece body rather than sliced and 8 faced of many pieces
  8. well I just experienced something and wanted to share. if I keep mesh pieces low in number for upload (15-20 mesh pieces so linked materials are around 100 in sl ) that means I divided my whole mesh into 6 pieces. and when I apply texture to those ones in sl no issue happened. that little experiment made me think : linked mesh pieces shouldnt be more than 15-20 in sl and thus linked materials should stay below 100. when I try this, no issues happened. I will read and check your last suggestions. now ^^ ... if there are lamina faces or duplicate faces, my little experiment above must result in issued again same, not it ?
  9. I just checked whole pieces, no lambert1 in any of them
  10. 1# method doesnt solve it (upper lower body seperately still issue happens) 2# ok let me understand,about Lambert1 , does it have to be in one of my mesh pieces? cause I created a new material for each face , and not sure if lambert1 is one of them. (I am checking now) I just try to figure out. you said : "If Lambert1 is sitting there, restart the assignment from scratch!" so my mesh materials must include lambert1 ? and you said : "Assign the first existing material to the object first, then all the other materials to the single groups of faces." each mesh pieces should include lambert1 ? I m still checking , it seems like none of my mesh pieces have lambert1. all have a brandnew Lambert. (I didnt use 8 recycled materials, I created a new one for each face) sorry I am some confused my lack of english, perhaps u could just guide with simpler sentences thanks for fast reply by the way : when I apply texture more than once in SL , that glitch (not uploading at once) seems like gone I mean that solves the issue, dropping the texture in edit window more than once
  11. Hello , I just noticed you are writing about texture issues inworld, I sent this in main forum but just want to copy paste here too , I appreciate any help about my issue below >>>> I came across an issue with my mesh and applying textures on it : its a 78 piece linked mesh and each piece has 8 materials. so when linked all together its makes my mesh a 624 linked material. here link below https://gyazo.com/215ac577989af6f739037462c6952e12 the problem is , when I upload it in SL and drop a texture in main edit window (its rigged mesh and it doesnt change result, putting the texture, when I rezzed it or while I wear it, always random missings) the textures mostly work on parts but some parts are always missing. that changes randomly here the links https://gyazo.com/12c1d2515b11f767d90b6cc59562afd7 https://gyazo.com/bcae146337216221d9f4b129a228a263 I wonder what is the reason for this to happen , is there limit for linked mesh pieces (mine is 78) and materials of a linked mesh (my linked meshes has 78x8 = 624 materials) and I am planing to make those work with a HUD and scripts changing textures on pieces of mesh. will scripted meshes be okay or still those issue may happen, if the problem is high number of linked materials Note : I always clear non-deformer history, but I wonder is there a UV history besides that in maya ? Note 2 : when I drop texture in edit window box more than once, (twice is okay it seems like ) that solves the issue. but I wonder if any script can help with it, when I make a HUD for my mesh. perhaps a script that will load textures twice
  12. Hello , I came across an issue with my mesh and applying textures on it : its a 78 piece linked mesh and each piece has 8 materials. so when linked all together its makes my mesh a 624 material linked. here link below https://gyazo.com/215ac577989af6f739037462c6952e12 the problem is , when I upload it in SL and drop a texture in main edit window (its rigged mesh and it doesnt change result, putting the texture, when I rezzed it or while I wear it, always random missings) the textures mostly work on parts but some parts are always missing. that changes randomly here the links https://gyazo.com/12c1d2515b11f767d90b6cc59562afd7 https://gyazo.com/bcae146337216221d9f4b129a228a263 I wonder what is the reason for this to happen , is there limit for linked mesh pieces (mine is 78) and materials of a linked mesh (my linked meshes has 78x8 = 624 materials) and I am planing to make those work with a HUD and scripts changing textures on pieces of mesh. will scripted meshes be okay or still those issue may happen, if the problem is high number of linked materials
  13. THAnks Optimo I am working on that now
  14. Hello OptimoMaximo: as you mentioned above , its due to removal of unused joints (in smooth bind menu, I unticked that button). and so far it seems like issue solved. I dont see that broken blanks in my mesh anymore. well what is more I need to ask about your side note >> "this isn't an optimal thing for the asset itself, because you'd be keeping a lot of unnecessary data for a lot of pieces. You should manually remove the unused joints from each piece basing off their actual distance from the slice, and retain only neighboring unused joints." << so should I manually remove the unused joints from each piece? I just tried witout touching anything but making the thing above "not removing unused joints" everything is working fine so far but I wonder what if I dont remove those manually ? it decrease LI if its done (manual remove) or where should I check to see its effects (not removing VS removing manually unused joints) (cause I dont know much about manually removing unused joints, but I can learn) as I said : so for , without removing manually those, nothing seems wrong. but I wonder advantages of manually removing those. note : how can I learn about removing those joints manually, any tutorial suggestion? I am good at skin weights but never played with those stuff (removing manually etc) I am not sure if it can cause issues but I just deleted joints that I dont use , as seen in the link below. to keep max joint limit , I think it was 116 ? this is one piece of mesh, not sliced one. but I use same skeleton for sliced pieces too. (uv maps material assignment not done) https://gyazo.com/5d5e78bdedc18c1ee6f38a0aceeabde8
  15. thank you so much for reply, well okay I am a bit lost. could you tell in other words please, how can I fix that for my mesh body. (I m developing a mesh body) I dont see this issue with other mesh bodies in market. they are working fine with high altitudes but my mesh body is having that issue.
  16. hello , I just noticed an issue with my rigged mesh when I was testing it on high altitudes 1000 m or more . its combination of many pieces for alpha cuts here is gyazo snapshot. I wonder how can I fix that. I use maya. as far as I see there is a solution for this cause some well known mesh bodies dont have this issue (its not about LOD by the way , I checked it ) https://gyazo.com/e5d4f52c76c9bf7e5c51e59539668a29
  17. Hello, I am having an issue with collision cbones, while I copy weights in maya, they just dont work as you can see in two pictures, in 1st picture the breasts are in default pose, in 2nd picture I increase breast size but although I did copy skinweights, my mesh's breasts dont respond and also other collision cbones ( torso muscles, leg muscles, butt size .. ) weights dont work on target either. but mbones (fingers rotate or shoulders elbows ) working. just collision cbones not working. one more point : the head's all bones (mbones + cbones) are working fine, they seem like copied pretty good enough, cheeks, eyes, mouth, ears, head size etc. they are pretty good on my mesh (need fixing of course) this issue seems like only about body's collision cbones, What may be the reason ? 
  18. I have a mesh that I made where the fingers are in the relaxed position, (in fitmesh skeleton that was okay) So I will rotate or move the new bento's joints to match my mesh's relaxed hand. In MayaStar there is a function called Custom Bind Pose. Before you explained me how to use it, thank you so much but still one question . when I change finger joints as desired on left hand, how can I get equal pose at right hand ? Must I make that manually by copy-pasting and changing - + values (that can be tricky sometimes) of translations or rotation values on each joint ? or is there an easy way for that, (I am also asking google and SL group atm )
  19. Hey Cathy, ty for suggestions, it really helped much , I just learnt some new pretty helpful points annd that warning-error window wasnt coming up when smooth bind , it came up when I tried to export my dae. file out of SL, I just learnt Its simply telling me that I "forgot" to add some bones to the mesh". In my case it is fine because my mesh body doesnt include mhind, mwing mtail parts. So it s a warning about that, not an error and I can just upload the mesh in sl without problem
  20. Thanks for your feedback Vir, I am a beginner with bento, perhaps a silly question, how many bones in bento skeleton? (not sure where to check this data in maya) if number is over 110, it means that I just cant bind (pic1) whole bento skeleton to my single one piece mesh, and it will give error while uploading in SL ? I know, the parts behind is unused, better to delete them. But I just want to figure out, whats possible & whats not. so if I made a centaur with wings and tail, (say all bones used) I can upload it as a single mesh piece or .. not ? I just couldnt test that, because I had another lovely issue with dae_fbx importer. (pic2) It was working with old skeleton fitmesh but now, not sure whats wrong. I use mayastar 5, its great,Cathy just made an update. But it seems like I am missing something there pic1 PS : I learnt that ; pic2 isnt a real error," Its simply telling you that you "forgot" to add some bones to your mesh" in my case its fine because the body doesnt include mhind, mwing mtail parts. thats why it s a warning, not error.  pic2 
  21. hello, I was wondering 1.If "remove unused influences" tab must be ticked or not, while binding mesh to bento skeleton. 2. As far as I know, it was causing issues, to import whole skeleton, there was a upload limit with bones I mean : for example if I only rig a hand, I should delete other bones. (at least up to a number, -Ive forgotton that-) Is that changed ? 
  22. hey Gaia thanks for your reply , well yes I am already aware of that bones. though the problem w with that toe bones was; it was pretty limited to get a high heel pose as desired but as I know bento skeleton's bones have the ability that can be moved , I mean translations I think with this option, it will be possible to get desired results in feet pose.
  23. Hello, I wonder if high heel feet pose will be possible or not with bento skeleton ? I suppose finger poses will not be possible as in snapshot below, since feet finger bones arent included
  24. Greetings I am in search of skilled scripter for a HUD project ,(upcoming mesh body avatar's HUD) -preferably experienced with mesh body avatars, and familiar with mesh body avatar's HUDs- see you inworlds
