    I purchased the asset yesterday. What I still don't understand is:

    Do I need to pay the cloud subscription for using the fullbody samples?

    Hello. The Avatar Maker plugin doesn't provide fullbody solution. It woks in offline, Pro version has unlimited avatars generation.
    The Cloud subscription applied to the Cloud Avatar SDK plugin that has an extended functionality.

    That doesn't answer my question: Do I need to pay or not for getting my avatar working with body?

    The Avatar Maker plugin generates only the head. If you need to attach this head to some body, you should implement it yourself. If you are using Avatar Maker plugin, you don't pay cloud subscription.

    Oh... That's a huge price for just an example.

    Btw, I have two questions:

    - Faces are not properly recognized when smiling (especially opened). Is there any standard pose I should use?
    - Dunno why but beard is not properly recognized either. Any clue?

    We suggest to use selfie photos with neutral face expression without a smile and glasses.
    Regarding the beard, it is quite challenging to reconstruct the head with the proper beard like on the photo. Because we don't generate the beard mesh, it appears only on the texture.

    Hi,

    I just bought Avatar Maker Pro and having some fun with some random images from the internet. When I tried to export to FBX I got error the error message: "Error during saving mesh to FBX. result code: -3. output file: C:/Users/%username%/Pictures/model.fbx. Texture file: C:\Users\%username%\Pictures\model.png".

    Hi,
    Could you try to specify other output directory without %username%? If it doesn't help, contact our support (support@avatarsdk.com) regrading this issue. We will help you with it.

    thanks, the problem was solved after I restarted my laptop and unity. I am playing around with your asset with some anime images :D. Keep up the good work, when your Avatar for UMA is ready for both sexes I will take that too :)

    I'm getting a Unity crash every time I press 'start capturing'. The weird thing is I've been using this with the same version of Unity for months now. 2019.419

    I was able to use my friends project with him.
    I successfully made an Avatar with a a beard that looked fine.
    Next, I added the Avatar to a 3rd Person Controller by replacing the current head.
    (you can add this Avatar to the rig in the HEAD area)
    Then I added LIP SYNCING to it and was pleased with the outcome.

    The issue we had after this was NOT being able to build it to ANY platform.
    .dll had issues.

    What would the problem be? It works in EDITOR. .dll file had checkboxes we selected everytime many combinations with no build results other that the error.

    Hello. Sorry for a delay in response.
    The Avatar Maker doesn't work in the standalone application, only in the Editor. You can create an avatar, export it as a prefab or just FBX and use it in your project (without importing the whole Avatar Maker plugin).

    Hello ledentsov,

    I am looking into buying the Avatar Maker pro, but I have a question that will help me decide if this is the right tool for me.

    We want to create an avatar system in our game, that allows the user to upload a picture of his/her face and use it as the texture of his/her player(avatar). So I came across your asset and I wonder if this would be the correct asset to achieve the above.

    Can your asset be used at runtime? Is your asset a good candidate for this?

    Regards,
    Carlos

    Hello Carlos,

    The Avatar Maker plugin has several restrictions and can't be used for your use case. It doesn't work at runtime and supports only Windows platform.

    I am suggesting you consider our other Avatar SDK Unity plugin: https://avatarsdk.com/. It allows generation of avatars from different pipeines (including Full Body) and works on all common platforms.
    If you need detailed information about, you can contact us: support@avatarsdk.com

    Hello ledentsov,

    I checked the other Avatar SDK that allows generation at runtime, at the pricing is insane! So it isn't possible to buy anything in this times anymore ah? I don't know who can afford such a high priced subscription for live, but I am sure I am not one of them!. What happen with the old "You pay for something and it is yours" economy. Most of Unity users are small developing teams after all.

    Anyway thank you.

    Regards,
    Carlos

    Avatar Maker doesn't require any subsribtion and doesn't ask to sign up. Where are you asked to do sign up? Could you provide a screenshot of it?

    I have a question. Why does the plug-in paid by unity only support the Editor Mode and cannot open the SDK code to the playback mode? You can also make this pattern into a plug-in. There is no need to close the source of the SDK too much

    Hello. The Avatar Maker plugin is built only for the Editor mode, in the case of play mode we recommend to look at the Avatar SDK (https://avatarsdk.com/), which contains much more types of the avatars and supports more platforms.

    Sorry if I'm just missing it, but is there a link to the docs? I want to edit the Avatar Maker scripts so i can generate a generic avatar more quickly, which just a click of a button automatically generate a basic avatar based on a photo of a given name in the Resources folder(through the editor). Is this possible to do?

    Hello. There are no docs for the Avatar Maker plugin.
    You can look at the IAvatarProvider interface. It contains methods for for working with avatars. See its usage in the "AvatarMakerWindow.cs".
    For example, if you need to generate an avatar you should:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. // Initialize AvatarProvider
    2. IAvatarProvider avatarProvider = AvatarSdkMgr.IoCContainer.Create<IAvatarProvider>();
    3. yield return avatarProvider.InitializeAsync();
    4.  
    5. // Initialize avatar by passing photo bytes
    6. var initializeRequest = avatarProvider.InitializeAvatarAsync(photoBytes, "name", "description", PipelineType.FACE, parameters);
    7. yield return initializeRequest;
    8.  
    9. // Start computations
    10. var avatarCode = initializeRequest.Result;
    11. var calculateRequest = avatarProvider.StartAndAwaitAvatarCalculationAsync(avatarCode);
    12. yield return calculateRequest;

    Hi,
    I am using your amazing plugin, PRO version.
    I have one question. Is there a way to generate an avatar without the teeth?
    Or the only way is to remove them manually outside Unity and then import the model inside Unity again?
    Thanks for your kind help

    Best regards

    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro,
    You can export an avatar with Level-Of-Details #8. This LOD doesn't contain teeth.

    Hello. It looks like you have missed some files in the plugin. Could you make "Window->Avatar Maker->Reset license and resources" or reimport the plugin.
    If it doesn't help, please contact us: support [at] avatarsdk [dot] com

    Hi, I'm planning to purchase Avatar Maker Pro from the Asset Store.

    I wanted to know the difference between this product on the Asset Store and the face capture SDK on your website.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello,
    Our web site mentions Beta version of the Face Capture SDK. It is available only for Windows and iOS platforms and is redistributed as a native C++ library.
    Avatar Maker plugin uses modified version of this Face Capture SDK. It works only in the Unity Editor.

    Just to clarify, am I correct in assuming there are no functional differences in features between the two?

    The only difference being in the availability of platforms?

    Thanks so much for the quick responses!
