Qarl Fizz Announces Alpha Release of Mesh Deformer
Qarl Fizz, the former Qarl Linden or Karl Stiefvater in real life, has finished the alpha version of his Mesh Deformer. Daniel Voyager reports it's included in Version 1.03 of the Niran Viewer, or one can just get the code from Qarl. Hamlet Au states it's also in the latest version of the Exodus Viewer.
The most notable feature of the deformer is how it addresses the complaint of mesh clothes forcing users to make their avatars conform their shapes to the outfits. With the deformer, the mesh coat in the video expands out to conform to the avatar's expanding body fat. Qarl says it's far from finished, but the "heavy lifting" is largely done.
Qarl is looking for feedback on the alpha, which can be done at this JIRA.
