  1. Hello, I am trying to make an animation where, my avatar is laying down and using a palm device. However, when I upload to sl, he is upright. Any suggestions what I should do? thanks.
  2. Hello, I've been having problems more recently with pelvis rotations within blender & using avastar. I have made roughly over 500 animations in the past using the same program/plugin versions and I have never seen this happen before. What happens is when the pelvis is rotated with curves; the entire body of the avatar jolts once it is in SL, otherwise it looks perfectly fine in Blender. Here is what it looks like in Blender: https://gyazo.com/e745e52fc1abfad26dcec32c47c71001 and here is what it looks like once it is imported into SL: https://gyazo.com/c056342957fff3b2122b3441ab103532 As you can see, there is a major problem here, and I'm thinking maybe it's a problem with SL itself. I always export and upload in .anim format. The animation is running at 30fps (iv'e tried slower) and iv'e also tried exporting it with other settings, like; use translations.Also I had the avatar enabled with IK's set to 1.0. I even tried moving the avatar in certain positions from the origin, with still no luck. Has anyone at all got any idea why this is happening? I'm surprised no one else has reported this that I have not seen. Any input is deeply appreciated. This issue is basically showstopping my work. Versions used and tested: Avastar 1.0/Blender 2.69 and Avastar 2.5.1/Blender 2.79 Viewers tested on: Firestorm 6.0.2.56680, Second Life Viewer 6.2.3.527758 - Kylie Remsen @ Silent Motion
  3. Hello! I am trying to rig a non T-pose character. Its in an "I"-pose actually, arms are down, legs together. So I rig it, everything is fine, but how do I get it back to T-pose before I upload it? Alt+R dont work. And another thing. It seems bones are somehow locked, they dont move 360 degrees, its fine but still curious how to disable it. Any help please?
  4. I have been told by numerous people to never touch, resize, or move any of the bones of the base skeleton if you don't want it to break with animations. I know that can't be true given the sheer diversity out there with proportions. I wanted to know if there's a "safe way" to move bones. For example, these leg bones up?
  5. I'm new to avastar and I use blender. I messed up the weight on one part of my model and now I'm stuck, long story short I ended up removing all the weight on that bone. My question is pretty obvious, how do I copy the original weight of that bone back to my model, but only that bone while keeping the rest of the weights untouched. I'm desperate for answers, I don't wanna have to redo the whole process. Please help me.
  6. I was following a few avastar tutorials for adding physics to an original mesh model but all of them go from where I was, finishing weight painting, to going to a category called 'fitting' and generating weights for physics. That's where the red physics bones show up and they continue from there. But my avastar is lacking this option. What did I do wrong? Is there an update I'm missing, a setting, some sort of priming for the model to be done first? Alternatively, is there an alternate way to add physics bones in blender that will work with second life's physics? Other people Me I am using a second life skeleton, if that helps any.
  7. Hi, As the title said, having trouble with snap to base function or store join edits with avastar. I'm currently working on the Kemono bento base file and I've made wings that use the bento fingers but when ever I've made the edits and select the bones to press "snap to base", it either reverts the fingers back to default or pushes the skeleton back and keeps doing so. Was wondering if there was a reason for this. Thanks, Mimaah
  8. Alguien conoce alguna forma de exportar animaciones desde Blender a SL sin tener que utilizar Avastar?. Al exportar como .bvh el visor de SL no lo quiere leer. Gracias.
  9. Hello. I'm rather new to secondlife and looking to create clothes. I'd like to someday get a devkit, but I know I have a lot of work set out ahead of me before I can do that. I have a lot of experience as an artist in general (in the past I've made a full-time living off 2D art and painting), and a handful of knowledge about 3D modeling - though nowhere near as vast. But I do very much know my way around blender, and I'm excited to learn the bits about modeling itself that I don't know yet. For the most part I am right now making furniture and accessories (though I haven't released anything on the market yet), but in between I'd like to just do some experimental things with clothes, at least for myself, for now. The block in the road here is that all resources have pointed me to the Standard Sizes found in the marketplace, but the dropbox link doesn't work anymore, and doesn't seem to have since sometime last year. Is there anywhere else I can find these? I've seen a few discussions where people have brought up fitmesh, but I'm a bit confused on that also. I wear the Maitreya body, and for the most part things that are labelled XS will fit me. I wouldn't be able to dream of getting the maitreya devkit right now (if ever? from some of the comments I've seen...), but I don't quite understand if the fitmesh will fit me (and I guess, someday, others) if I were to create on it, or if I would also still need the standard sizing avastar models as well. Thanks!
  10. ive just started learning avastar2 and been going through whatever tutorials i can find and successfully started making standing animations , however i have been trying to make sitting animations but end up floating a few inches off the floor in game even though im ground level in blender. i have followed posts on here about the cog control and set locrot but that didn't change anything, the character moves to the desired position but always hovers a few inches of the ground or any other object. im a bit stuck and any help would be appreciated thanks
  11. So i stumbled upon this limit on sl which pretty much makes any decent weight paint of a face a nightmare, i have this mouth that i have to weight paint but the bones are really close to each other, this makes the whole process overly complicated and frustrating, most of the time i find myself surpassing that limit in order to achieve a somehow working mouth but then again ...sl wont accept more then 4 weight group per vertex, also using the "Limit total" function doesn't help a lot. i really need some suggestions and tips for the workflows that i need to follow in order to avoid messing with the limit and making a decent weight paint.
  12. I have an animation which I'd like to upload for personal use at priority 6. With this said, it's only one animation, and I can't justify the $40 price tag to get Avastar so I can upload a SINGLE priority 6 animation. With this in mind, I'm looking for someone who has Avastar already, and would be willing to help! I'll be willing to pay a reasonable for it, in addition to covering the 10L$ upload cost! If anyone is interested, I'd prefer to communicate further via in-world IM, so I can share the dl privately. Thanks in advance!
  13. software used: Blender 2.79b, Avastar 2.5.1 and firestorm viewer. Hello, i'm having an issue with a mesh limb for a custom avatar i made that uses custom joint offset (pic1, pic2), i upload it with "include skin weight" and "include joint position" . the arm it self works until i wear some mesh that is rigged with a different joint offset, this will dislocate completely the limb and i have to relog to fix it. Also the fingers are all pointing in the wrong direction whenever i wear something or not. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong, this is the first time i'm using different joint offsets. link for the blend file, NOTE this is the dumbed down version of the mesh : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q2YfVvDktjmRMC_X7997eUpFQoJr5Kd_/view?usp=sharing Any help is appreciated
  14. So I'm looking for help. I have decent (I think) mesh and texturing skills, or at least they've getting there, and I want to learn clothing and rigging and stuff. I have Avastar, and a few other tools, but what gets me is I haven't found a good set of tutorials, and I don't know anybody who really knows how to do it. So I keep getting stuck, and it's way more complex than just normal mesh so it's harder to just look up what I need. So... does anybody have suggestions about a good set of tutorials that can at least walk me through the general process. I tried reading the stuff at machinimatrix about avastar, and it's interesting but there's so much to digest and not a lot of context to fit it into. I found a couple tutorials where someone walks through using marvelous designer and avastar, but it's old, she's using Avastar 1.0 and doesn't provide a lot of detail. So a few really good Avastar 2 tutorials would help me understand the workflow, even if they just walk me through one path. I know there are many ways to do it. So having someone to talk to would also be great, although I know that's a lot to ask. Is there someone who needs an apprentice? :) Thanks for any and all advice, I'm desperate and will be so very grateful... I'm sure this has been asked a gazillion times, so even just pointers to the other times it's been asked would help. Ally
  15. Hello, I applied as an Creator for the Rigged Mesh Body from Belezza and I want to build Jewelleries for hands. My friend told me that there is a big problem in using the Belezza Body for creation in Blender with avastar. Before I start to get to know the InDepth issues I would like to get informations and solution in front from experienced users of this body for blender. I hope to get your help. Regars, NIWO
  16. Hi everyone! I'm posting today about my mesh body I am making. It's fitmesh, it's bento, and sadly the neck is giving me issues. When I look at the weights on the Avastar mesh and copy those weights to my custom body - even when I use the exact correct neck-piece of geometry from the Avastar - there is a gap between my custom body's neck and my CATWA Bento female head. Here's a picture of how the weights look for Avastar's neck: And, here's the weights for my custom body's neck: And here's the neck inworld when my avatar turns it's head to the side: Any help on this issue would be appreciated.
  17. Hello, I have received the Jake Belleza Dev Kit from Belleza and am a Blender user. I have 2.79 and 2.72 for various needs and Avastar 1.7.1 for Blender 2.72 and Avastar Bento 2.3.2 for Blender 2.79. I have done my best following the instructions given by Belleza to convert the rig to Avastar/Blender and as far as the rig goes it is functional but the issue is with the mesh clothing floating dramatically away from the body, I've gone so far as to suck it up into the body itself and while it does get it closer the issues that creates moving forward are just silly and not useful. See the picture for what I am getting. I work with most of the other major Dev kits and while each have their own quirks this one is something special lol. If any of you talented mesh makers have over come this I would love to know how. All the best, Scarlet
  18. i tried making a pose but seems like no matter what i do it has some strange behavoir. So i thought why not make it simpler and move only one bone. The bone i moved: When exporting this and uploading to SL it has some strange behavoir.. Even the legs seem to move though i've never touched them. Does anyone know what's going on?
  19. I just started learning mesh and am mostly using tutorials. I am working on a bikini and the top rigged perfectly but the bottom is doing something I'm not sure how to fix. https://gyazo.com/674b28d4e7e5cfab1138fd9063e94143 I don't have any current knowledge of Blender and Avastar except what I've learned from tutorials. I've been following this tutorial. Edit: Sorry, apparently that video is unacceptable to link.
  20. I'm new to avastar and I'm learning as I go but right now I'm having a hard time modeling seams on my clothes. Is there a way to freeze the position of my mesh without unbinding it from the armature? I would appreciate all the help.
  21. Hello! I use blender and avastar to make my own body. It's a mesh body of others (A), which has been bound to a skeleton(a). I use the upper part of it to creat my body(B), and binds it to another skeleton(b). I adjust the skeleton(b) to make it same with (a), and I convert body(A)'s weight to body(B), so either the skeleton or weight is same. I didn't do anything with this part of mesh in blender. And i upload both A and B into SL. As a result, other parts of body fits well as it should do, but some parts (which belongs to Chest joint) doesn't fit. The Chest of B is always bigger than the A. Also, clothes from other creators fit with A, but not B. Obviouly there's problem with B's Chest, but I dont know. I tried to adjust deform bone Chest in blender but it doesn't work as I thought. So, why don't they fit? Or, what influences the Chest and makes it bigger than it shall be? Is there anything i missed? Thank you for your help! I've been working on this issue for 3 whole days...
  22. I'm using a AO for this character and just have it in a flying animation. But then randomly it just starts to decide that it want to break its wings randomly.If i move it basically fixes it but then it goes back to it a while after. I have no idea what is effecting the animation.
  23. i am probally misunderstanding something here.. but why does Avastar 2 creates a rig for me with 159 bones if i can't get more than 110 inside SL ? I rigged my avatar and SL is not recognizing my weights.. It was working fine before trying out the Extended armature (bento) =(
  24. I need help with moving the avastar avatar up and down so that the SL avatar ends up in the same position. I understand that the COG bone moves the position of the avatar but I can only get it to rotate, any other type of movement like using the transformation manipulators: translate, moves the avastar avatar up and down, so the pose, say a sitting one, looks ok in blender but when I go to upload it to SL the SL avatar is hovering in the air, so my question and hopefully someone knows, is how do I get the cog bone to move the avastar avatar so that the SL avatar is doing the same pose. (I put this in an old post but thought I might have better luck making a new topic)
  25. Hello everyone, I'd like to start off by saying that I've tried doing this myself, but in all aspects, failed to do so successfully a great numerous of times. I'm trying to get a model that has already been made into SL as an avatar, but I almost get reduced to ripping my laptop in half because of it. Avastar is being a royal pain in the ass (not the good kind), and I've looked at alot of tutorials and followed them to a "T". Yet still nothing seems to be working at all, so I give up. So here's the deal: I want to pay someone to do this for me. It's getting really very very tiresome and aggravating, and I don't want to end up just giving up on this. I can really export it into a .dae file, if that means anything. Pictures of the model here:
