Avatar Blender addon

Postby jsan3386 » Wed Apr 21, 2021 4:23 pm

I've created an addon for Blender using Makehuman model. https://jsan3386.github.io/avatar/

The addon was initially created to help me speed up the generation of a 3D human synthetic dataset. There are some parts that still need improvement, but for the moment is usable as it is.

The addon is integrated into Blender and allows to:
1) Load the model and change shape
2) Load cloth assets (model and textures) into the model
3) Transfer BVH motions to the model

Any comments, bugs, or help is appreciated!
Jordi.

To install the addon first you need to follow these steps:

1. Create a file in the avatar github folder named config.py with the following content:
avt_path = "/path/of/root/avatar/github/project"
2. Go to Edit>Preferences>FilePaths and add to Scripts the path to the github avatar folder
3. Go to Edit>Preferences>Add-ons>Install and choose the file avatar_addon_b280.py

Hi woodcat,

I modified part of the code where the different paths are load to the system so python can find the files. Probably it was a compatibility problem between Linux and Windows OS.
You will need to download the addon again. If problem persists I will check further.

I can't replicate the error since I don't have a Windows OS.

The code currently depends on these directories:
sys.path.append(os.path.join(avt_path, "body"))
sys.path.append(os.path.join(avt_path, "dressing"))
sys.path.append(os.path.join(avt_path, "dressing", "materials"))
sys.path.append(os.path.join(avt_path, "motion"))
sys.path.append(os.path.join(avt_path, "motion", "retarget_motion"))

which I added in the sys path. Don't know the reason why this doesn't work with Windows.

I read some workaround might be add these paths in the PYTHONPATH variable, set PYTHONPATH=%PYTHONPATH%;C:\avt_path\;C:\avt_path\body;...

For a better integration in Blender I need to change several things in the code and this will take me some time, since I don't have much time right now.
