  1. Hello everyone! I use Maya 2016 and tried both the bento skeletons found here and here. Though the animation plays, it forces the arm to move to the position of the shoulder. Earlier when I made an animation that moved the fingers, when i uploaded it it forced the fingers to move to the position of the wrist. It seems that my animations force the rotating joint to move to its previous joint in hierarchy! I have Maya working in meters, I have the up axis as Y, as suggested in the BVH exporter text instructions. I tried with the SL skeleton before the bento bones and everything worked right. What is going on ? Any help appreciated! P.S: I uploaded the animation on megafile if that helps: http://www.megafileupload.com/1qj1o/test1.bvh EDIT : I tried with the SL skeleton before the bento bones and everything worked right. What is going on ? EDIT #2 : The Exporter found here http://circle.twu.net/progs/ in version 1.5 worked for me. I had been using 1.6 and it kept giving me that error It is disappointing that the official page suggests we use the 1.6 and that I spent 2 days trying to correct my animation and exporter settings, and all this time the version 1.5 would have done what I wanted with no problems Submitted it as bug here https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-41691

  3. Thank you all, thank you Tara Moana as well in specific. I was making chainmail made out of efficient low poly torus items (but many of them) and adding a cube to that mesh allowed me to upload it. Just wanted to write that down in case anyone has a similar problem or may benefit from the method.

I downloaded this as per your instructions and used it to export to DAE directly. Then I edited the lines in notepad++ as suggested here https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Mesh/Mesh-Face-Numbers-in-Maya/td-p/2821632 IT WORKED. I will make a few more tests soon and update here. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart ♥♥♥ this was driving me nuts!!!
  5. Thank you for your reply! ChinRey wrote: I do not know the software you use but in Blender the order of the materials in the dae file is simply the order they were created in - and are listed in. Maybe FBX Converter does something similar? (Just out of curiosity: is there any reason why you use FBX as an intermediate file format? Maya should be perfectly able to write dae files right away, you just need a free plugin for it.) There is one last emergency solution to try if all else fails. A dae file is essentially a text document describing the mesh. You can open it with any text processor and modify it to your hearts content. The syntax differs a lot depending ont he software it was made with but the material nuymbers shouldn't be that hard to find and once you've identified them you can just swap them around. I have changed the material order in the DAE file produced by the converter of 2011.3 for FBX . It doesn't work I use Maya 2012, export as FBX and then convert from FBX to DAE with the aforementioned converter, as is suggested by LL and all the people here on the forums.
  6. Hello everybody, I have spent the last day searching through the forums, following the advice previously posted on similar threads and editing the DAE file as well. Nothing works for me. My problem is that I would like to have absolute control over the order in which the 8 materials I assign to my objects translate into faces in SL. I have observed that the alphabetical order of my materials does not translate, nor does the order in which they are shown in Hypershade. I need to be able to match the face numbers between not only copies of the same mesh but also between different meshes. I am using Maya 2012, exporting FBX and then using the FBX Converter 2011.3, I am converting to DAE. I have deleted the history, froze transforms, even tried putting my objects in a new scene and re-assigning the materials. Nothing, still.
  7. Hello everyone , I am in the final stages of a mesh body and I would like its HUD done by a professional scripter in a timely fashion! The mesh body is cut in pieces and has multiple overlay meshes, all of which have to be controlled by a HUD to make parts of it appear/disappear so that the body can be worn with mesh clothes. What I need from the HUD: Clickable buttons that represent the mesh body, that the customer can click onto and make them appear/disappear + 5 slots to save the current selection of opaque and transparent parts Tinting the mesh body + 5 color slots to save the currently selected color Minimize, Exit buttons We can discuss payment options through message, please contact me in world or in here :) Adele Bumblefoot
  8. Hello all and thank you for taking the time to read this :) I have built a mesh item, as you can see here It is a piece of medieval headgear. All is good as long as I use opaque textures..however when I try a transparent texture? This happens. (I wanted to release this item in both opaque and transparent veil :matte-motes-bashful: ) I have a photo of the object in pieces too, which indicates that it is not a matter of the objects overlapping each other - right? So, I wonder - is it the usual alpha glitch or something I have done wrong with my mesh veil? The texture I am using is a PNG file, I don't know if it matters. I am not using the in-world, edit-menu transparency value at all. It is set to 0, that one. Thank you in advance for your responses ♥
  9. Thanks for testing it! I have tried transparent texture too and it works. Could you try a rigged item that you've made and see if setting transparency in -world,in Edit menu, works for that? I wonder if it is an issue with the meshes I make or a general rigged mesh issue .
  10. The item is opaque when I upload it, the texture I am applying to it is opaque and I am setting the transparency through the Edit menu, in Second Life. When I am applying a transparent texture, it works perfectly. So, the bug is..setting transparency for rigged mesh in-world. ( My original issue was on a rigged mesh cape though I figured it happens to any rigged mesh - hence the simple rigged cube )
  11. I am sorry, had no clue I could share from dropbox! Update: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ui6aovdfehha9c/test%20cube%20rigged.fbx https://www.dropbox.com/s/kg5kt1uhgf5hjsk/test%20cube%20rigged.dae
  12. Hello all ! I write here after many hours of testing :( I created a rigged mesh that I would like to be transparent. However, there is an issue with it.When I rez it on the ground, the transparency is as expected. When I wear it on my avatar, it is totally opaque. The same item , when unrigged, appears as transparent as expected, rezzed or attached to the avatar. This only happens in viewers based on the latest SL Official viewer with materials (SL Official and Firestorm Beta) and only when Hardware skinning is on combined with Advanced Lighting Model being off. So, to sum it up, my rigged mesh appears opaque when worn when my graphics are Hardware Skinning on and Advanced Lighting Model off. I have checked whether this happens to transparent items other people have created, for example two fur coats I have bought but I could not reproduce it I tried creating another rigged mesh item ( a simple rigged cube ), made it transparent and I saw the same buggy behaviour. I assume it is something wrong with my version of dae and the new graphic settings of the viewer - Any ideas as to what could create this issue would be so appreciated! Link for download of my DAE and FBX in case anyone wants to try: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ui6aovdfehha9c/test%20cube%20rigged.fbx https://www.dropbox.com/s/kg5kt1uhgf5hjsk/test%20cube%20rigged.dae Thanks in advance for reading :)
  13. Hello everyone. First of all I would like to take the chance to thank all the people in this forum for their responses to all the previous threads before mine - they have been a great help to me as I started to learn how to mesh a month ago. Jumping straight into the topic at hand, my problem is Ambient Occlusion. I have spent almost two days reading and reading again about the same topic. Mesh interiors and how they are rendered black with the wrong AO settings. I have tinkered with Max Distance in the settings of "mib_amb_occlusion" many times, tried different values of this option but nothing works for me. I am building a tower that if covered gets the interior almost black, if uncovered gets a dark grey interior after Batch Baking of light and color , using surface shader and the texture mentioned above. I can provide screenshots but my case is identical with the ones mentioned in the two previous threads [ - http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Mesh/Maya-Baking/m-p/2057045/highlight/true#M22094 -http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Mesh/I-ve-got-this-friend/m-p/2019985/highlight/true#M21697 ] - only the solution does not seem to work in my scene. :( Thanks in advance, Adele. /// EDIT : My mistake was that I was not baking with Mental Ray as selected Render Software. When I picked this from Render Settings in Window Menu, it worked. Thanks Leviathan Flux for your response in-world! Leaving this here in case other people find it helpful.
  14. I am having the same problem since yesterday! Specifics: All viewers based on the V2 code (Firestorm, Exodus, Second life Official Viewer) use all my attachment points, so when I log in with one of these, my avatar has all different kinds of attachments to its full capacity. I do not know if it is of any importance but all these attachments are from my folders in 'Clothing' folder. Phoenix or Singularity(with mesh) do not cause this problem. Attachments include not only avatar but the HUD points aswell. I ended up with 4 copies of my AO on me. Tried removing all attachments at once from Worn tab of Inventory, after it had all loaded : sometimes the viewer just crashed, others it worked. Tried character test, viewer has crashed all the times. Tried moving from one server to the other, the bug was not fixed. Tried 'Replace Current outfit' even after inventory has loaded, the viewer crashed all the times. I can just use any v1 based viewer to avoid the problem but it is not an actual solution. I tried clearing cache, waiting for inventory to load but, no matter what, all attachments (different on every try) re-attach on my avatar, even if I am only trying to wear a clothing layer and not an attachment. Thanks in advance.
