AvPainter - SL Clothes Design and Preview Tool - Full Version Version 1.7.4

Details Features Contents Reviews (1929)


Draw clothes, skins, tattoos or whatever you want, directly onto the SL avatar model! Texture design software for Windows (XP, Vista, Win7, Win8; 32 or 64 bit).

It's been nearly 10 years since I first released AvPainter, and now it's time to say goodbye. I will no longer be able to offer any support, and there's no further development planned, so I'm making the software available to everyone for no charge.

AvPainter is a tool to aid the creation of clothing for Second Life, allowing you to preview clothes and draw directly onto the avatar model. It is a separate application that runs in Windows, outside of Second Life, exporting targa (.tga) texture files to upload into SL.

You buy the AvPainter package which contains these instructions and a AvPainter Computer. The AvPainter Computer is a stylish computer model that you can keep out in your SL home if you wish. On rezzing, the AvPainter Computer will give you your own registration code and url for downloading the full version.

The full version of AvPainter occasionally checks for updates. You will be able to download any updates for AvPainter for no extra charge.

Although they can run side by side, AvPainter runs best without SL running. SL tends to grab a lot of texture memory and slows AvPainter a lot.


AvPainter installer includes the necessary XNA/DirectX components. You will need the following:

A PC running Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 (32 or 64 bit).
A graphics card with PS1.1 & VS1.1 support


Full instructions are included with AvPainter (via Help->Show Instructions menu option).



  • Paint clothes directly onto a Second Life avatar
  • Paint sculpties
  • Paint OBJ files
  • Easy to use, deceptively powerful

Sadly doesn't work for windows 10

Posted July 18, 2021 by Raven76 Darkheart 2 stars

I was really looking forward to using this and even though I followed the link that the previous reviewer had posted I just couldn't get it to open on my windows 10 computer, a shame really I had heard great things about it
