This looks interesting!


This is really something that should have been built into the SL viewer a long time ago. There's just so many avatar shapes and sizes to cater poses for and this tool is so useful.

There are tools on the marketplace but they will be limited in what they can do unless LL adds more capabilities. The only benefit for having those MP poser tools is so other people can see how you're posed as well as pose your avatar for you.

It's just more intuitive to see how the avatar looks when posed within SL as opposed to rigging it in a 3D app and then importing it to verify it. In 3D app, you don't know how your clothes or hair is shaped or even how your environment looks (unless you're the creator of those items) to get the right posture and it becomes a trial and error process. That's just unproductive.

Here's hoping server-side support comes through so I can share poses and maybe even give others temp permissions to pose me as well.

This is really amazing, exciting, uplifting, and relevant to a popular use of SL these days.

Niran certainly deserves Patreon support, but I hope his work is justly compensated if it's adapted into the main. I'd say any development that actually works is worth a lot more than what developers were paid for such jewels as non-terraforming terrain.


Pretty blog, so many ideas in a single site, thanks for the informative article, keep updating more article.
