Old vs Recent Versions of MakeHuman

Postby rhiz18 » Fri May 18, 2018 7:29 pm

Hi All,

First of all, I’d like to say that I’m very appreciative of the effort that the developers have put into this piece of software and the fact that they make it freely available, so I hope that the rest of my post isn’t perceived as being unduly critical. It’s a very useful piece of software with a rich feature set.

That said, I’ve been following the development of MakeHuman almost from the beginning, and what really appealed to me in those early versions was the fact that it was capable of producing very naturalistic and characterful models, as opposed to Poser which I felt tended to produce very generic, “pixie-faced” mannequins. In the early versions of MH the age, gender and racial variables produced meaningful differences while maintaining a high degree of detail and anatomical accuracy. Over the course of it’s development though, MH human seems to have lost that quality somewhat, and I was just wondering why. Was there a change in philosophy, a change in the development team etc? Here’s an image of a couple of models produced by really early versions of the software – if you compare this with the kind of models produced by recent versions, you’ll see my point. I can't recall precisely which version generated these, but it was an early one:

Apologies for the double post – I submitted this to the wrong subsection. :oops: This is the correct place:
