This week the awaited project viewer for Animesh was released. See Second Life Project Animesh Viewer version 188.8.131.529458 here.
This is the first build of the Animesh Project Viewer. Animesh is a new feature under development that allows non-avatar objects to play animations like avatars do today. Animesh is still under development, so the new features will only work in supported test regions on Aditi. See the wiki page for details on how to get started with animesh. You can report problems with animesh in our JIRA and discuss it with other interested residents at the Animesh Forum .
For more information, see our blog posting.
This viewer ONLY works on the ADITI – Preview/Beta Grid.
Lindens are answering questions in the SL Forum. Please read the thread before asking your question.
The announcement for Animesh is here: Join the Project Animesh Beta – New Support for Animating Mesh Objects.
The details are in the SL Wiki here: Animesh User Guide.
The only place Animesh works is in the Preview Grid (click for info). If you have never logged into ADITI, you will need to try and likely fail. Then contact support and tell them you tried to get into ADITI for the first time and cannot get in. They’ll fix you up. Then you’ll be able to log in.
Medhue has some Bento tutorials that should help with animesh.
Otherwise, it is too early for tutorials. There are problems with animesh. The basic mechanics are working. But, amimesh’s right and left click behavior, various alignment issues, attachment issues, and Pathfinding integration have some issues.
