I was thinking about gadgets and scripts today. No, I am not a geek. I just realized there are a handful of scripted gadgets in my life that I use daily. There’s my wonderful facelamp from Cognitive Gears, my teleporter, my Photosphere from Saeya Nyanda, my pose stand, my inventory boxes, my texture organizers, my AO, my Bax Coen boots. There are a LOT of things that make my world a whole lot better.
Well, I got a new gadget from an old friend that is going to be added to that list. Avimote Dreamscape’s new PoseMaker is a revolution for anyone interested in working on their avatar’s poses in world–either adjusting existing poses or creating new ones, using one’s own avatar!
It’s a complex but highly usable system that allows you to adjust 19 different areas of the avatar three ways for each part. That’s uh.. 57 and then uh, each one has many iterations which means… yeah.. uh YOU do the math.
You can pose your avatar using this gadget or you can tweak existing poses.
Consider this tweak I tried today. I started with the above pose, which always puts my hand in my skirt. I wore the hud, click clicked, and I was no longer looking impossible in RL. Moving the skirt prim would have ruined the outfit—moving my hand was so much easier.
Well and then I click click click click clicked and clicked some more….
(BTW, you can’t see the settings in the photos, but they are there. Not sure what SL did with them when I took the photo.)
Here’s another example. I always had a little problem with how the head tilted in this one pose.
Click click, my head is fixed. (Hm.. why does that sound wrong?)
Finally, you can create poses from scratch. Rez a pose ball using the hud and adjust yourself into place.
Sit on it and zero all. You start in typical appearance mode pose.
Then start clicking. You will find out it’s not as easy as it might seem. (How do I tell the darn thing I just want to put my hand on my hip?!) However, this is after a half hour of messing around—imagine what you could do with a little more time in!
He has also included an emoter with the package and a brilliant web interface that launches and logs you in right from SL. I kept clicking and saying, “Cool! Awesome! Smart!”
The downfall of this gadget right now? You can’t save poses. But Avimote is working on a way to save out poses to a website. And as I understand it, he will be working on making a couples poser in the future and allow you to work on other’s poses.
This is only the beginning….
