Who is KatsBits/jazzKat? Basically, and not to toot jazz’s horn with too much of a hint of modernity, jazzKat is the founding avatar of the Blender 3D community within IMVU, every Creator who uses Blender to make products for IMVU can trace a lineage to his founding documents, example files, tutorials, individual help, community support, project fixes, back in the olden days of bobble heads, big hands and feet. More recently jazzKat worked with IMVU to help bring FBX to the Creator Tools, and wrote the official Blender tutorials collected together in IMVU’s Official Creator Education Center.
