Lots of things were learned this week. So I'm moving up a full version number.
Carried over all transitions from AnimationPoser to Timeline instead. The randomization isn't as nice, but till there's a stable release of AP this'll have to do.
Redone guts as a clothing item. No longer rigid!
Excuse the slightly taffy look. I'll come back to refine it as I learn more Blender tricks. The majority of time was figuring out clothing creation and rewrap. It needs another rewrap to be perfect in every conceivable pose.
Refined some CUA models and fixed alignments.
I believe alignments will go out of center due to rounding up positions upon save. So the save toggle now takes care of positioning before saving.
Fixed rendering queue on clothes.
Camera automatically tracks the person. Thanks Lynyrd!
can be set to track: head, chest, hips.
3 different paths: 360, 360 high, 360 low.
Fixed pause and scrubber. Despite extensive testing, this is still broken. The scrubber only works for the animation selected within the plugin.
v3.1Should be fixed now. Just remember to select a path.
Tail now moves once in a while.
Went over the pose presets. Adjusted chair for each sitting pose.
v3.11 Trying to sort dependencies v3.12 Trying to sort dependencies
So I just noticed the version I've been using of AnimationPoser isn't automatically downloaded in the dependencies. I think it's been moved? It can still be downloaded manually though from the hub in an outside browser.
This controls a lot of the "life" functions of the character. So without it, well it makes me sad to think of what the experience would be. Will be looking into fixing this ASAP but the newer version of AnimationPoser, released by a different author, doesn't support loading old animations.
Done a test with a clean install of VAM and yeah, this sucks. Even logicbricks didn't download properly, killing the whole scene completely. I got some work to do sorting this out.
Nearly done migrating all of AnimationPoser into Timeline instead. I miss the fine control of transitions and general randomization but what can you do. Progress 8-9-2023:
Major strides have been made. It's going to be a full version jump. Some models have been redone. Guts will now be a clothing item.
Thanks to VL_13's skeleton clothing. We now have finger and toe bones!
Added optionalviscera (incomplete, and feedback will have to decide if there's going to be more)
Stomach, guts, reproductive, bladder. All untextured and pleasantly cartoony.
Added optional muscle systems from VL_13.
Removed camera control inputs. They were not satisfactory. Refined the timeline controls instead.
XRAY effect is now controlled by a tablet you can carry around.
The guts are rigid. I tried different rigs. Making a clothing item; but they would be heavily affected by morphs (just the standard navel morph would mess it up) where it just looked bizarre. This rigidity means there's a chance there'll be clipping, and generally look inaccurate in scrunched up poses.
Let me know if there's any blendshape requests, as I made a lot. But I'm hiding my power level for now.
Issues I've noted with this release:
Freeze button stops camera animation instead of pausing.
Guts rigging is messed up.
Some parts have gone out of alignment (again). Some models I'll be refining.
