MayaStar is a plugin rigging system for Autodesk Maya. It works with Maya 8.0 through 2020. Much of MayaStar will work with Maya LT but there are limitations since Maya LT is a limited version of Maya. Feel free to contact me first if you are using Maya LT.

New in MayaStar 6.1
1. MyAniMATE LT (Exports .anim animations and much more) NOTE: For Maya 2015 through 2019 Only
2. Scene Export (Exports objects positions and rotation generating an LSL script that is then used in a rezzor to position your objects perfectly sim wide.)
3. Sansar Avatars
4. Reshaping body to quickly reshape your clothes you made that fit the LL avatar to the Sansar avatars.
5. Dev Kit Import (3 ways to import Dev Kits)
6. Dev Kit Prepper (Fixes dev kit DAE and FBX skeleton and mesh problems automatically)
7. Quick grid settings
8. Improved Poses
9. Reset Skeleton button added to Appearance Editors
10. Improved accuracy of face and head sliders.
11. New Add Ons Section in MayaStar Menu.
12. Improved main menu layout.

1. Appearance Editor Sliders and all bones including Collision Bones respond to them as they do in SL.
This mean way easier rigging and weight adjustment process. No more having to upload your mesh to see how it will look.
2. Set of Animations so you can see your mesh move! Male and Female walk, run, sit and more.
3. Interactive Skin Bind now possible.
4. Change effortlessly between Centimeter avatar and Meter size avatar. The avatar in SL is actually 100 times larger than the skeleton and avatar mesh and OBJs provided by Linden Lab.
5. Automatic Mesh Resizing: You can now use MayaStar to resize your mesh clothes to the 5 Standard Sizes for regular rigged mesh clothes or to any custom shape using the Appearance Sliders.
6. Windows and Mac compatible.
7. MayaStar can be used to rig Fitted Mesh or regular rigged mesh.
8. Change to any Custom Bind Pose you want without having to "Detach Skin" of your mesh.
9. I will be adding series of videos on YouTube showing how to use each feature step by step in the next week or two. 1/31/2015

What can I say

Posted August 30, 2020 by Rya Nitely 4 stars

I thought long and hard about buying this. I never spend this much money in SL (except on tier). I sent a notecard to Cathy Foil with a few questions and got no response, but then Optimo Maximo was very helpful, so I bought it.

When I had problems with the rig testing animations, Optimo helped me there too.

The reason I bought this was to make rigging easier but I just can't figure out what to do with MayaStar, even after watching the tutorials (several).

But then I tried MyAnimate and followed just one of Optimo's tutorials step by step, and my first attempt was a success.

I wanted something to make rigging easier, and instead I learnt how to make animations in Maya. 4 stars for that.
