Edit geometry tags

Postby BlauerKeks » Sun Aug 14, 2022 1:00 pm

I've found some forum posts regarding the issue but to be honest I don't really understand them, e.g. no idea where proxy files are and how to open them, so I'm asking here for an "explain like I am five"-explanation: How do I edit/change the tags of, for example, a clothing article?

Clothes are text files, which happen to have the extension ".mhclo". Proxies use the same file format but have the extension ".proxy"

When downloaded, these assets end up in Documents/makehuman/v1py3/data/clothes (or "../proxymeshes")

Tags are defined by lines in these files. To change a tag, use any text editor (such as wordpad in windows) to open the corresponding mhclo file. Find the line that says "tag XYZ" where XYZ is the current tag. Change XYZ to what you want instead. Save the file and restart makehuman. The new tag should now be used.
