First steps with Avastar. The video explains the most basic functions of the Tool and gives a very brief overview about where the Avastar tools are located. This is a must see video.
This Video demonstrates the following workflow:
- Download an Avatar Shape as XML file from Second Life
- then import this shape to Blender as a new Avastar character.
- Modify the Avastar Mesh and
- upload the final result back to Second Life.
This Video lets you get started with Posing your character. We will reproduce the simple pose as shown in the image to the right. And fortunately Avastar provides a few tools which let you create such a pose within less than 2 minutes (after you know how to do it of course)
A few quick tips where you can find help for Avastar.
