Optitex 19 – Navigating the Avatar Editor

 Quảng Cáo Việt Tiến CAD

The Avatar Editor 19 allows advanced users to prepare avatars for company-wide use. With the Avatar Editor, you can easily load an MOD or FBX file containing either a scanned/sculpted avatar or an Optitex avatar. You can customize the avatar to meet your own needs by creating sizes, adjusting morphs/accessories, editing shaders, etc. and then save the file as an MOD file for use in the PDS.

The Avatar Editor 19 is installed once you install the Optitex 19 full package.

In the Avatar Editor 19, you can start customizing your own avatars. By default, the main screen appears without any editing tools. You have to open a file to view the editing tools.
