Get head of the avatar models alone

I know there are individuals head models I can use, but I rather prefer to use the head of the HD avatar models, for obvious reasons. ;)

Is it possible?

I've tried to turn off the visibility of all the other bones of the avatar models, but it didn't work. Neither disable...

Any help?

Hi carlosppamaral,

It's possible. I used the standard HD character that is included with Vizard. To make the body of any HD character invisible, open it's .cfg file, and look for the name of the material file for the body. The characters have a different file for the head and for the body. It's the name of the file that you should put in the avatar.visible() part of the code.


import viz


avatar = viz.add('vcc_male2.cfg')
avatar.visible(0, 'male_body.crfx')

It works. Still, the result is not what I expected. Anyway, I think I can overcome this from here. Thanks!

The result is different for the HD complete characters than for the normal complete characters. The head of the normal complete characters does not include the head, whereas the head of the HD complete characters does include the neck. Making the head of a HD complete character invisible also means the neck is invisible. So custom head swapping is different for both type of characters (if that is what you're trying to accomplish).
