Aqsis Renderer : Freedom to Dream. Download - MakeHuman Docs. What's an "alpha"?

Download - MakeHuman Docs

This is not a full-function release and, most notably, does not provide functionality to allow the figure to be posed. It does include examples of all of the different tools and techniques that this software will provide to enable you to easily model the anatomy of a human figure, although some of these functions are not yet complete and are not necessarily in their final form.

This release also provides the 3D graphics community and the developer community with a preview of the functions that this human modelling application will provide. This is an Open Source project and it is hoped that artists and developers will be inspired to join in and help accelerate the completion of this innovative application. We are particularly keen to hear from additional talented Blender artists willing and able to help us deliver a more extensive set of authentic ethnic models.

Pose Controls This Alpha 4 Release does not provide any pose controls.

Quick Start - MakeHuman Docs

The default position has the human figure standing facing straight towards the camera with arms outstretched. Further information on Posing MakeHuman figures can be found in the Pose section of the Users Guide Files In this Alpha 4 Release the Load, Save and Export buttons work. The Load button displays a file browser, showing images of MakeHuman 1.0 files from your 'models' directory. The Save button initially displays a text field into which you can type a name and tagging information that will help you to subsequently find your model.

The export button saves a Wavefront object file as well as a material file and skeleton to import in a 3d modeller like Blender. Render Rendering options are provided by a bottom buttons on the 'Render' mode screen. Aqsis Aqsis is an Open Source rendering application that implements the Renderman® standard.

Introduction This Alpha 4 release is intended to provide users with a view of a subset of the features that will appear in the full 1.0 release later this year.

This is not a full-function release and, most notably, does not provide functionality to allow the figure to be posed. It does illustrate the new mechanisms by which the figure can be modeled for ethnicity, gender and age. More complete releases are expected to follow soon. The purpose of this Alpha 4 release is to encourage feedback on the features and their usability via the MakeHuman community forums. MakeHuman© is a free interactive modeling tool for creating custom 3D human characters.

What is MakeHuman? - MakeHuman Docs. MakeHuman(TM) is an open source (so it's completely free), innovative and professional software for the modelling of 3-Dimensional humanoid characters.

What is MakeHuman? - MakeHuman Docs

Features that make this software unique include a new, highly intuitive GUI and a high quality mesh, optimized to work in subdivision surface mode (for example, Zbrush). Using MakeHuman, a photorealistic character can be modeled in less than 2 minutes; MakeHuman is released under an Open Source Licence (GPL3.0) , and is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The MakeHuman 0.9.1 Release Candidate was published in December 2007, prompting considerable community feedback. Development effort is currently focused on the 1.0 Release, based on a new GUI and a 4th generation mesh. This release also incorporates considerable changes to the code base which now uses a small, efficient core application written in C, with most of the user functionality being implemented in Python. What is Open Source? The humanoid mesh - MakeHuman Docs. [Document is Work In Progress] The principal aim of the MakeHuman project is to develop an Open Source application capable of realistically modelling a very wide variety of human anatomical forms in the full range of natural human poses from a single, universal mesh.

The humanoid mesh - MakeHuman Docs

Central to this is the design of a 3D humanoid mesh that can readily be parametrically manipulated and deformed to represent alternative anatomical characteristics while retaining and respecting a common structural skeleton that permits poses and the corresponding deformations to also be parametrically manipulated. This objective has been pursued to afford the artist the maximum degree of experimental freedom when using the software. It frees the artist from the artificial constraints that are inherent to a model that has pre-established gender or age.
