Title: [IMVU] Make a valentines bike (LIVE!)
Post by: kat on February 13, 2019, 04:52:51 AM

In this HUUGGEEE 15 hr! collection of videos recorded live on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/katsbits) (may include off-topic chat), jazzKat (https://avatars.imvu.com/jazzKat) shows IMVU Creators how Blender 3D can be used to make a heart with handlebars, a 'heartobike' (TM) - pronounced "heart-o-bike". The valentines project starts using the default scene Cube, which is shaped into a heart, and then textured - this includes UV mapping and creating texture maps for others to use as guides for derivable objects.

Using the Furniture Starter File (https://www.katsbits.com/files/imvu/katsbits_nodes-furniture.zip) the project is then turned into a furniture item and given a custom pose, created using the Pose Starter File (https://www.katsbits.com/files/imvu/katsbits_female04-poses.zip), the two being exported to FBX and then assembled in IMVU.

In the final phase the item is animated, a simple 'skeletal' animation and a more complex 'morph', or 'shapekey' (as they are called in Blender) animation. Here some trouble-shooting is needed to get to the bottom of an issue ... watch the entire series to find out!.
