Animaze v1.26.11968 - API release - March Update

We are releasing a very special build today, with a lot of surprises for all you tinkerers out there:

- added Animaze API that enables 3rd party apps or hobby developers to control certain functions (e.g. load avatar) or get certain info (e.g. list of ready to use avatars) of/from the Animaze Desktop application. See docs here:

- added a Programmable Tracker that enables 3rd party apps or hobby developers to directly retarget their tracking data on the Animaze avatar (Animaze 3D, Live2D, VRM, Ready Player Me, GLB). See docs here:

- adjusted avatar spawn location behavior that fixes undesired spawn positions for scenes prepped for Animaze Rooms.

- fixed Live2D props misplacing when loading Quickscenes.

- added support for eye angle ranges for VRM models (see VRoid Studio Eye Alignment options).

- added Camera Transitions for Quickscenes.

- added Frame Transitions (fade and two dissolve anims) for Quickscenes.

- moved Webcam settings to a separate settings tab.

- VMC Tracker now supports camera transforms, you can start using Animaze as a Virtual Production setup with a hand controlled (by external device) render camera.

- fixed Ultraleap retargeting in Animaze Rooms.

- fixed issue with generic idles which disabled head and body tracking (for all 3D avatars, previously it was fixed for VRM/RPM).

- extended Quickscenes generation to more than 10 slots. You can now create virtually infinite Quickscenes. Quickscenes over the initial 10 slots can be triggered through Stream Deck or Animaze API.

- added 9 more animations to the Mannequin (animations available for all VRM and RPM avatar out of the box): 3 walking cycles and 6 sitting idles.

- updated the Live2D SDK.

  *other placement tweaks.
-added two new options to Axis Perception Neuron retargeting
-fixed an issue with retexturing using an image file with the a name that is already used
  *fixed hip bone - avatar doesn’t move around the scene, stays in a fixed position
  *upper body only - Axis is retargeted only on the upper part of the avatar, the lower part will display the current idle.

-added camera FOV controls. FOV value is also saved in Quickscenes.

Animaze v 1.26.11853 - Sony Mocopi integration - January Update

Greetings and Happy New Year! 

We’ve prepared a nice small January Update with a few goodies to help you with vtubing at the start of this year:

  • [-] we’ve added Sony Mocopi full body tracking that works out of the box for humanoid Animaze originals (including Personas), VRM and ReadyPlayerMe models.

  • [-] we’ve added a Broadcast to Spout2 function on the three-dots menu of the Enable Virtual Camera, you don’t need to use the Dedicated Capture Window anymore just to use the Spout2 function.

  • [-] we’ve removed the Shop from the Voice Effects gallery, which effectively removes the Voice Skins Alisha and Daniel from sale. Users that have already purchased the Voice Skins will be able to use them without restrictions.

  • [-] we’ve added the one-time-payment option to the Upgrade Menu.

  • [-] various fixes and improvements, including the issue with saving and loading forced symmetry options (the ones from Overrides tab).

  • [-] we’ve updated the Animaze Editor to the latest engine code, getting a cumulative 3 months worth of improvements and minor bug fixes.

As always, we love to hear your feedback on Animaze! Tell us what you think on our Discord server, email us at support[@]animaze[.]us, or message us on Twitter!
