I have Avatar 2 installed and I been trying to follow along watching the two video’s in the second video you mention a single Dummy however when I check my folder all I find in my dummy tools folder is the two structure’s if this is right how will we be able to work alongside the training video?

I have a similar issue in that the following items mentioned in the video do not appear to be where it is suggested they are

a) I cannot find the "at-base" character installed anywhere (but I assume I can save it from one of the projects included)

b) In the dummy tools I have structure-pair and structure-single but there is no sign of the single dummy. Where is this or is the structure-single the same thing?

Thanks

I guess I'm I the only one who....when I add an accessory to a Monster or Toon avatar using the new Toolkit I get a crash of iClone 64bit?

Now it works fine in the 32bit version of iClone. I have installed all the latest patches and upgrades as well.

Just askin'...

To work along with the tutorials you can use the objects included in the sample projects. Smile

So if you have purchased the Avatar Toolkit2 pack you should have the following:-

Set > Props > Avatar Toolkit2: Avatar Builder, Avatar Controller, 2 Dummies.

Actor > Avatar > Avatar Toolkit2: A Dummy Non-Human Character.

Project > Avatar Toolkit2: 11 Sample Projects.
