Sparkles 2.3-4 release, Avastar 2.41 release, Primstar 3.04
#1

Avastar 2 was made for rigging: attaching a skeleton to
mesh avatars and clothes/objects so they move perfectly
with the joints of your body. All within the limits of
Second Life avatars ofcourse. It can do all that avastar 1 could, but was created to take advantage of the new bones that
were added to mesh avatars: bones for facial expression,
tail bones and wing bones. Anything created with Avastar 2 must
be uploaded with a Bento capable viewer.


Sparkles is an ever growing tool set (see Guests cannot see links in the messages. Please register to forum by clicking here to see links.)

Primstar is a plugin to create sculpt maps and UV maps for sculpted prims

I bought yesterday 13$ for a year, but what happens after the year ... I have to pay again to continue receiving updates ?, if so, it seems abusive.

Yes, it is a subscription. It will also cost more next time because prices are going up now.
On the other hand this has been Gaia's only source of income for some time.
It has become a full time job. So I keep saying: if it is useful to you, consider buying.

The interface of Avastar is always different and the tutorials are too old to be really useful.
I used version 1.1 without problems, but now I have abandoned this product, it becomes too complex to use.
It is obvious that Avastar is very powerful, but requires a lot of learning time.
If I have time, I will look at MayaStar which is more stable with its interface.
I recall here that we can get versions of Maya completely free (Just say that you are a student or teacher)
