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.
MakeHuman 1.0 alpha6 What's an "alpha"?
[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. 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.
