I would like to see a breast angle slider

Postby rampa » Wed Aug 27, 2014 7:53 pm

I'm finding Makehuman to be quite enjoyable to work with. Looking forward to it getting better and better. Thank you!

An addition that I think would help would be a way to change the angle of the breasts. Most important for females, but would have an effect for male as well.

I noticed there is no way to point the breasts straight ahead. No matter the slider settings, they project out an angle on the Z axis. Some breasts do that, but some point more straight ahead as well, especially inside clothing.

Hi Rampa,
can you make a sketch that show the breast angle, to avoid misunderstands?

Here is my attempt to clarify a bit.

Currently, the body of the breast seems to be rotated around it's Z axis. I'm imagining rotating the entire body of the breast so that the nipple is facing straight forward.

I see.
The current angle is the natural one, that occur when there is no bra. A perfect perpendicular direction is very rare in nature.
Anyway I added an issue for this request: http://bugtracker.makehuman.org/issues/508
We can make a tool that rotate the breast, but with small angles ( < +-20).

Thank you Manuel,

I was thinking for more "stylized" looks (think DAZ/Poser). Also supported by clothing. :lol:

I do appreciate the striving for a natural looking base.

So perhaps you are asking for this?

Looks like you're already on the clothing part. I still think the angle change would be helpful as well.

Admittedly the angle is not natural, but bras and clothing are designed to do many unnatural things to women's breasts as a rule. ;)
