Many people don’t like to include modify permissions on their merchandise to protect themselves against theft, however, there is a way to protect your sculpties from theft and STILL include modify permissions. The easiest way to steal an object’s sculpt map is the screenshot method. The thief opens up the edit window, clicks on the sculpt map, and then takes a screenshot. He’s then free to crop the sculpt map from the screenshot and re-upload it into Second Life. However, there’s a cure.

Avatar Size vs Hip Height, Leg Length (Poser animations) heyas; what is the "trick" for doing proper height animations for different sized avatars? i have created a 'tiny' avatar, and to test that it is the proper size, i created several versions of the T pose, lowering the character into the ground at the knees, waist, palms, and eyes. the regular t pose stood on the ground fine, but then the following poses sank lower and lower further from the mark. aha, i thought, perhaps the hip has to stay the same height as the default, and i move the ground up to the shorter avatar's feet?

This knowledge makes choosing the basic sculpt type easier and also allows many advanced techniques to be used in the modelling process. It will also help you to understand what the Primstar scripts are doing to make things quicker for you. Don't worry if you don't understand all of this the first time you read it. I'll be mentioning the concepts here in different contexts throughout the manual. Come back and read it again after finishing the manual and creating a few sculpties and it should be a lot easier to follow.
