Avastar-1-dev-726

Hello. This time only a small update related to Documentation: We have added Links to our Online Documentation into the Blender main Help menu. And we have improved the Label of the Help button in the Error Popup Window. It now indicates that you can get Avastar related help from there.

Note: There is no functional change in Avastar with this update. So you can skip this update if you prefer.

Changeset:

  • Imp: Added Links to Avastar Help Pages into the Blender Help Menu
  • Imp: Added “Avastar” to Help button label in Error Menu

Todo’s:

  • Completing the Documentation
  • Review (and partially redo) the existing videos

Highlights:

  • Get Help easier.

Please note that we have Online Help since Blender 2.64:  For almost all Avastar functions you can right click on the function button and open the “Online Manual”. This will open your Web Browser and navigate to the corresponding Avastar Help Page.

Known bugs:

  • The Spine attachment bone has a wrong orientation. Thus attachment animations of the aSpine bone will turn the bone upside down. Only the aSpine bone is affected. For all other bones animations work just fine. No workaround known.
  • The .bvh export is broken. Workaround: Use the much more versatile .anim export instead.
