MayaStar Rigging System for Fitted Mesh & Regular Mesh
[Image: MayaStar_4.4.jpg]

MayaStar 4.4 is here for both PC and Mac!!!MayaStar is a plugin rigging system for Autodesk Maya. It works with Maya 8.0 through 2015. It should work with Maya 7 and earlier but one Maya Binary file will have to be adapted so send me Cathy Foil a notecard if you have an earlier version. Much of MayaStar will work with Maya LT but there are limitations since Maya LT is a limited version of Maya. Feel free to contact me first if you are using Maya LT.New in MayaStar 4.4:

1. You can now make animations and poses with MayaStar! You can wear your mesh clothes or accessories you made and create custom animations and poses for them! Appearance Editor Sliders work while animating as well.

2. BVH exporter added.3. New male avatar skin texture so now he isn't wearing a bikini top or makeup.

Fixed: Male Fitted Mesh Avatar. Male avatar upper body was not accurate in MayaStar for fitted mesh. I fixed it so now what you see in Maya using MayaStar is now what you see in SL. I say it is about 97% to 98% accurate. I also updated the weights of the male avatar mesh used to transfer the Fitted Mesh weights from.New in MayaStar 4.3:

1. Specially designed four avatar meshes to copy or transfer the weights from to your mesh clothing. This will do 90% or more of the work of rigging for you in just a minute or two.Two avatars are for Fitted Mesh and two are for regular rig mesh that is rigged to just the mBones / Normal Bones for female and male clothes.

2. New "Body Type" fitted mesh system. Fitted Mesh will never be the one size fits all clothing solution. With my Body Type system you basically rig your clothes once and then use the Auto Mesh Resizing feature in MayaStar to reshape your clothes to three Body Types quickly so you can cover more avatar shapes than just rigging to the default avatar shape with only minor weights adjustments needed.Female body shapes are Waif, Hourglass & Voluptuous. Male body shape are Cyclist, Swimmer and Bodybuilder.FEATURES:

1. Appearance Editor Sliders and all bones including Collision Bones respond to them as they do in SL.
This mean way easier rigging and weight adjustment process. No more having to upload your mesh to see how it will look.
2. Set of Animations so you can see your mesh move! Male and Female walk, run, sit and more.
3. Interactive Skin Bind now possible.
4. Change effortlessly between Centimeter avatar and Meter size avatar. The avatar in SL is actually 100 times larger than the skeleton and avatar mesh and OBJs provided by Linden Lab.
5. Automatic Mesh Resizing: You can now use MayaStar to resize your mesh clothes to the 5 Standard Sizes for regular rigged mesh clothes or to any custom shape using the Appearance Sliders.
6. Windows and Mac compatible.
7. MayaStar can be used to rig Fitted Mesh or regular rigged mesh.
8. Change to any Custom Bind Pose you want without having to "Detach Skin" of your mesh.
9. I will be adding series of videos on YouTube showing how to use each feature step by step in the next week or two. 1/31/2015

Smile Hopefully this works on the 2018 vs of Maya. I can't seem to get the hang of blender. Maybe it's me being impatient but I have heard Maya was a bit easier and it may actually help with learning blender.  Thanks for the upload

Thanks so much for this, I really want to get some things back onto here in return and I feel like I'm missing small pieces to be able to do that.
