MayaStar is a plugin rigging system for Autodesk Maya. It works with Maya 8.0 through 2022. 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.

This mean way easier rigging and weight adjustment process. No more having to upload your mesh to see how it will look.

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.

Love it, I use to put together my version of Maya to work well with SL. It was a lot of time consuming work and can be quite frustrating and I didn't have as much to work with plus I have Avastar and would add that into my madness to try an finish animations as I couldn't get it to work in SL. Also I'm not much of a programmer so if anything code related would come up I could install scripts and do commands in python or Mel but that's pretty much it on the code side of Maya that I can do. But finally I can focus on my 3D work thanks to Cathy! Plus SL is getting better I don't have to create hacked rigs using attachment deformer's for more bones. Bento Rig is coming to SL and will solve all our problems when trying to be as creative as we like. Avastar and Mayastar are both amazing it's just that I am a Maya user and finally have a solution to stay in one program thanks to Mayastar! Keep up the good work Cathy, thanks again!
