How does Sparkles relate to Avastar?

Sparkles provides features which are not available in Avastar.

Sparkles is designed as standalone tool for general game development! It does not depend on Avastar, but it is tightly integrated

    I bought Avastar when Sparkles was available for free with it. I went in to grab another copy in case I didn’t have the most current and now I see I have Sparkles Light instead. How do we fix that?

    I installed sparkles. I saw a tutorial on sparkles, and I can not find it. Please, could you tell me where this is the tutorial. I find it a shame to have good tools such Avastar and Sparkles and not have to use the recent tutorials at best. Thank you for your attention on my request.

      Thanks you for your feedback.
      All features of Sparkles are documented in the Sparkles documentation (see right sidebar of this page).
      Maybe there is something missing. So please could you tell us exactly what do you not find and to which tutorial do you refer? Then we will improve the documentation as needed.

        Oh … ok, I found the video I had seen before: “timeline copy tool.” It saves time on the job of Animation. That’s cool! For creating animations is the hardest part when it is to make fluid and realistic animations. I’ll test it all. If I have questions, I will return.
        Thank you for your reply!

    I have installed Sparkles 1.4-9 and I can’t locate it in Blender. I remember there was one nice video explaining about Sparkles, which I do not find here anymore or a proper tutorial for it. Could you, please, point me any tutorial for Sparkles? Thank you.

      all Sparkles are documented in the Sparkles reference documentation.
      You find this documentation when you scroll up to the top of this page,
      then look on the right sidebar.
      There you find 9 links to the various Sparkles tools.
      Let me know if still something is mising.

    I have installed Sparkles Pro (sparkles-1.3-16_blender-2-70) , as well as the Avastar (avastar-1.4-9_blender-2-70). I was following up the video, and I got stuck at the copy key moment, once i select the upper, lower and my mesh object (t-shirt made out of cube), I do not get the smart key copy. Am i missing some steps here or ? I am using Blender v2.74. Thank you
