Avastar-1-dev-636

This is a minor update. The changes are mostly usability improvements. The main changes are improvement of error handling and addition of a context sensitive help.

For Blender 2.64 pre release:

You can open the Help for any Avastar function button by:

Right Mouse Button -> Online Manual

Your Online browser should pop up and guide you to the relevant Help page.

Changeset:

  • FIX: fixed an error message text in the exporter
  • FIX: Parent to armature now preserves child location regardless of Avastar location
  • IMP: Make Error messages for unweighted vertices more consistent uand less confusing
  • IMP: Added Warning and optional Online Help Button to message popup
  • IMP: Some functions would change the selection State after terminating. This has been fixed. (No more unexpected flickering on the 3D View when calling a function)
  • IMP: Weight utilities now only show up when they can be used.
  • IMP: Added message box to Bake T Pose (when unweitghted vertices are found)
  • IMP: Added reports to status line for all tool shelf operators.
  • IMP: Check for attempt to reparent an already parented mesh and added a detail message box.

Highlights:

  • Help messages are now context sensitive. Most message popups now contain a button to the correct Machinimatrix help pages.
  • We added an example startup file which has built in materials for new Avastar characters. Just Add -> Avastar will now create a skinned female Avastar character.

Limitations:

  • This update is not compatible to Avastar-500. The compatibility fix is still pending.
