It has been in the works awhile. Now there is a planned official release date, October 27, 2018.
The announcement is here: AVASTAR 2.5 RELEASE DATE 27-OCTOBER-2018.
The listed highlights are;
- Improved support for Male characters
- Improved Collada export of characters with custom Shapes
- Improved User interface
- Rig Converter stability
- New Weight Copy Panel
- Complete rework of the Help pages (text only)
- Many dozens of smaller fixes
Coming behind this update is going to be the Blender update with its heavily reworked User Interface. Ugh… I have no idea how this Blender change will affect AvaStar. I do know I will suddenly be looking for common tools again and relearning Blender. So, I suppose that means AvaStar too.
If you have purchased support, this is a free update. I have and I plan to update my plan when it expires.
