Old Makehuman

Postby JESTERRRRRR » Thu Jun 23, 2022 10:03 pm

I was playing around with an older version of MH earlier. I think it's 1.0 alpha 7.

Has anyone else who regularly uses MakeHuman tried it? I hope I don't offend anyone with this opinion, but I think the old model is superior in so many ways. One of the things that particularly bothers me is the default male in current MH:


Here is the same, default male, in 1.0a7


Obviously both of the underlying base meshes have problems, of which the newer version I know has been discussed here before. To my eye though the older one is far superior in a few areas - the waist, chest, shoulders, underarm area, back. It has some geometry for the collar bone, and also includes the thing in inside corner of the eye. The older one is too low poly and some areas like the legs really suffer compared to the newer version, with the exception of the knees which again I think are better on the older version.

I haven't tried all the targets yet. The does seem to be better made overall however. And if you smooth/subdivide it you get past the low poly issue and I honestly think I prefer the old one (it's still not perfect by a long shot).
