Eeeeewww. i hate avatars like that.

It’s just anything you can make feel like you
A few sliders that anyone can do
Self is so important

…and could be a minimal avatar provider… that would make at least one.

And what happend with all the plans around morph3D and the avatars ? I never did hear anything about it after the last testing a year ago or so.

  • Is it still useable in high fidelity. Does the license not changed ?
  • Is it still free ?
  • It could make things more easy, if the improved things.

Or where Morph3D testing something for later use in sansar ? Yes i say that because the sliders in sansar where are as problematic as the ones morph3D used.

At least it’s clear what the goal is… Chatting with avatars…

A simple app in HF could do such customizable avatars, (even in full body).
That would be at least better than the wooden mannequin to offer to new be.
( An not very far from what Sansar really offer from scratch.)

Let say we start with 2 simple low polygons rigged bodies (one male one female, tuxedo and cocktail dress), a variety of head shapes, some hairs models, some accessories. Material entities to color that. No sliders. Aiming for a very low rez avatar that could be useful for very crowdy events.

Just an idea…

The trouble with low-poly avatars is the limbs don’t bend quite right.
