Belleza Mesh body Blog and Help

zedsensations.

belleza

 

This a blog and hopefully some help to the Belleza mesh body users.

This sexy body is created and designed by Tricky Boucher (the owner and creator of Belleza skins and shapes)

This is also quite a nice  package which can be purchased inworld at the Belleza store for the value of 3995 lindens. belleza store_001

You get all 3 mesh bodies, Venus, Isis and Freya.  The huds that you need and a wardrobe hud (to save your applier clothing).  Venus was the first Belleza mesh body release, but they  updated it with two others Isis and Freya later.  The fitmesh creators that were chosen to design for Belleza, many only have the meshing files for Isis and Freya and not Venus.  We are still awaiting the Venus files but there has been no news to date.  So in my store, my appliers give for Venus, Isis and Freya, but I only make official fitmesh for Belleza Isis and Freya.

Designed specifically for its own fitmesh brand clothing and alphas that can accomodate some of the other rigged mesh clothing available in the secondlife market.  It has its own applier system – Belleza appliers

To know what i have concerning belleza, you need to look for these logos on my vendor boards

belleza mesh body logo 512 FREYA AND ISIS 2 belleza mesh body logo 512 OmegaLOGO

The skin, clothing, underwear and tattoo layers of the Belleza mesh bodies are Materials Enabled so you can use materials enabled appliers.

Belleza hands are fitmesh.  Belleza feet are not fitmesh.

The Belleza Mesh body is fitmesh, meaning you can reshape the any one of the 3 bodies in the edit shape mode.  But you must remember that you require a modifiable shape.  If you do not have one, you can get one FREE inworld at the mainstore of Zed Sensations.

When you first purchase the mesh body you want to get your skin organised, so we will start with that first.  So get to your Belleza body file in your inventory and open it and begin by

  • Wearing the Belleza – mesh body alpha
  • Wear the Belleza – Isis, Venus or Freya
  • Adjust your preferences in your viewer if you are seeing yourself white.  To activate Basic Shaders and Hardware Skinning: Go to Avatar > Preferences > Graphics > General Tab > Look under “Shaders” and make sure “Basic shaders” is checked. Next look under “Avatar Rendering” and make sure “Hardware skinning” is checked.
  • 6417919e2946fbd12d38a9ea4c2b17cb

 

  • Advise your friends to set their settings on their viewers to these minimum secondlife requirements, so that they do not have problems seeing you.  Low is not acceptable.
  • You must have the Official Second Life Viewer or the latest version of Third Party Viewers (ex. Firestorm). You also need to adjust your graphic settings to activate Basic Shaders and Hardware Skinning. (as shown above)
  • To update your Official Second Life Viewer: http://secondlife.com/support/downloads/To view the approved listed of Third Party Viewers: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory
  • Optimal Settings
    For optimal viewing of your Belleza – Mesh Body we also recommend advanced graphic settings so you can view materials and experience the body in windlight.
  • We recommend using windlight to enhance your experience with the body. For more information on how to adjust windlight and to download some common Sky Presets, please visit http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Windlight
  • Wear the Belleza Mesh body Hud and click on the SKIN TAB, so that you see this –
  • This section is for changing your skin tone, saving skin appliers, adjusting skin tone, selecting breast shape, choosing nipple mesh color and turning on/off nipple mesh
  • ebb32d4975ef33b1a83dc30f83d6ff18
  • Here is where you choose your skin tones and in the 3rd row is where you can save your skin appliers.  I cannot confirm if this saves Omega skin appliers as I have never tried it.
  • You can tone your skin using the Skin colour picker to try to sneak match with skins you might already have but I always strongly recommend to please use a skin that is the same brand from the same creator using the appropriate appliers for the best skin matching.
  • Belleza Mesh body is Omega friendly, so it would be advisable to activate your Mesh body with the b88d53ae494b32cbfb106203b59753fc, this can be purchased at our inworld Zed Sensations Mainstore.  This will open doors to third party skins and clothing, widening your options a bit more.
  •  Omega Belleza Help – on how to install and use the Omega Belleza kit.  It would be advisable to join the Omega Support group for any other help or questions.
  •  You have the 3 Breast options which are useful but painful because many forget this feature.  Normal, Perky and Push up.  Nice when you are using applier clothing.  But when wearing Belleza fitmesh or rigged mesh, you need to remember to change the breast positions to obtain the fit.  I design my Belleza fitmesh with one of the 3 breast positions, depending on the outfit and the look I wish the outfit to have.

Now lastly on this skin tab, you have the nipple options, which click to put on the mesh nipples and select the colour you wish

ALPHA LAYER TAB

This is for when you are attempting to wear Rigged, sl fitmesh or Belleza fitmesh and need to hide certain parts of your mesh body to fit.  Remember to try Demos to confirm if any one of these meshes fit your body before purchasing anything.

Second feature – There are save slots to save your favorite alpha presets.

The third feature on this tab is the NECK OPTIONS, different neck sheath sizes for the different mesh heads available in the market.  This is for skin options only.

Eve Mesh Body blog and Help

zedsensations.

r 00 EVEslim1_001

This is Amazing creation is Made by the wonderful and kind Ginger Chevalier.

Two mesh body versions in PULPY and SLIM.  Designed specifically for its own fitmesh brand clothing and alphas that can accomodate some of the other rigged mesh clothing available in the secondlife market.  It has its own applier system – Eve appliers

Make sure to get the Free Modify shape from the Eve store or a Free shape from Zed Sensations at the Eve only Section so that you can freely modify your mesh body shape more to your liking using the Edit appearance shape sliders.

This mesh body comes now in a FULL BOX version for 3000 lindens which comes complete with a starter clothing pack for what used to come individually, you now get ALL of them, which is absolutely fantastic considering what many mesh bodies offer when you buy them. You also get a Wardrobe Hud for saving your APPLIER clothing from Eve and Omega appliers. If you purchased one of the full packs before, just reissue a new redelivery from the Redelivery terminal.

6c55cfcb008a0400fdfceee24f8c5e24 83aaa7cae1ae0c4a10daba4e2be53315

You can also purchase the starter packs for either Slim or Pulpy for 1690 lindens

As an official Afiliate and creator for Adam and Eve, you can purchase this at

Optional but very important, you will need to purchase the Eve Adaptive Feet High and Mid which will enable you more shoe options by simply purchasing Slink shoes , and if you are wanting to fall pregnant the Eve Belly.

When you first purchase the mesh body you want to get your skin organised, so we will start with that first.  So get to your Eve body file in your inventory and open it and begin by

  • Wearing the Eve alpha
  • Wear the Eve-pulpy or the Eve-Slim body
  • Adjust your preferences in your viewer if you are seeing yourself white 6417919e2946fbd12d38a9ea4c2b17cb
  • Advise your friends to set their settings on their viewers to these minimum secondlife requirements, so that they do not have problems seeing you.  Low is not acceptable.
  • Wear the Eve Hud and click on the SKIN TAB, so that you see this

711c43d5889f204a2fae86c89cd017d6

Here we have the Skin applier preset with 6 skins and two breast cleavage options.  Select the skin you would like to wear.  I would like to clarify that the skins here are to be used with the Eveolution Head 

So if you are using the standard secondlife avatar, you will need to do one of two things:

  1.  Contact the creator of your skin or go to their store and purchase an Official Eve Skin Applier (you can inform your skin creator that the developers kit for Eve skin is for free at the Eve store) or Omega applier.  ATTENTION!!! I cannot stress enough to please use a skin that is the same brand from the same creator using the appropriate appliers for the best skin matching. You will also need to take time to do skin toning with the neck join (For omega appliers to work you will need to activate your mesh body with the d5878de5ec7fa2313cd45476e35f955fso that your Eve mesh body can listen to the Omega appliers.  Omega Eve help installation
  2.  Go to the Eve store and get the Free Eveolution Head or purchase the full BETA version for  825 lindens if you want to use the skins on the mesh body hud.  This you will need to activate with the Omega Eve kit as well.  If you use the head and body together you will not need the neck join which you can disactivate on the ALPHA TAB.7f4f68a89e53a272798bc76fdc4cc7da

Neck Joint Help and How to use the RGB function with your Viewer

SHININESS AND SPECULAR

87d71b4532108fce11b7db6ab873b37a

You really do not want to play with this if you do not know what you are doing.

There are 4 maps.  You need to go to your Preferences in your viewer and slide your graphics to high and above to control and see the effects of the Shininess/Specular values.  The black in the Specular is less shine and the white more.  You can copy my values of my Spec and Env as shown if you want less shine possible.

NAILS

772507d72f2475b4229f4b8e3d1a7ca9

Now this WE DO LOVE FOR SURE….. 3 nail sizes.  You have 5 basic Nail and Toenail shades, but that is NOT the end of the world LADIES!… Look at the side buttons next to the Colour palette.  Each button is so that it tell the hud what you want to colour individually without colouring the whole body altogether.

The small buttons on the top row are SAVE buttons.  Just click on the arrows underneath to save your favorite colours that you made.  So click the NAILS button to colour the Nails and the TOENAILS button to colour the toenails.

You can click the  Nail On/Off button to put the nails on and to take the nails off for the fingers.

There is a Nail white button to reset the colour of the nails.

Adam Mesh Body Blog and Help

zedsensations.

_!_ Adam logoADAM in all his Glory

Ginger Chevalier is the amazing creator of this fantastic male avatar

The avatar I have posted is wearing both the Adam mesh head and mesh body.

The MESH HEAD can be resized but cannot be reshaped

    •  The eyes need to be made an eye depth of zero or according to the initial shape you are wearing.
    •   You can use your own secondlife eyes, or purchase mesh eyes from several eye mesh makers:  Customeyes, Ikon eyes, Fateyes and several others you can try in the marketplace according to what you like.
    • 94ea3a7b40c53b003afbadfc5afb23c9  This here are the buttons for the skin of the head and the adam body.  There is a neck join (where is says neck sl body), it comes with buttons for various sizes and the amazing X to hide it, as well as colours to help blend with the skins that come available as you see already.
    • There are buttons for various beards, eye shadows, lip tones, face tattoo, hairbase, eyebrows, eyelashes and neck tattoo.

  • c260b929b3381caf3a39cbe7b522a21d These are the buttons to give the hud orders to colour, and on the side is a huge colour palette for you to begin moving mouse on and selecting the colours that you would like.  On top is a row of small colour save buttons
  • Below is the RGB function http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Advanced_menu/1.23/1.23
  • fa32bc9b60523a8a7547887c22a7d96b these are extra functions to hide or show your eyelashes and ears, masking and blending your eyelashes so that the textures rezz nicely and smoothly, clicking the play button to allow your eyes to blink or not blink.  The specular control is for shine on the body.  The black is less shine and the more white you go the more you shine. (this effect is usually for those using their preferences in graphics on high and above.

The MESH BODY is fitmesh and can be reshaped and resized according to your needs, especially comes in handy when purchasing Rigged mesh and adjusting your body to fit into the various selection of mesh clothes available in secondlife.

The Edit appearance and alpha layer tab are super for when wanting to fit into Rigged mesh clothing or adjusting for sculpted belts etc.  Adam fitmesh, the clothing designer will have clothing especially rigged and weighted for the mesh body.  Some might still need a few alpha removal adjustments but if its a single colour piece of clothing, the designer can incorporate an auto-hide script to auto hide parts of the mesh body for you.  Unfortunately this cannot be used in certain texture hud scripts, due to licences occupying the space of where the encrypted code for the auto alpha hide system needs to be.

The feet cannot be resized but has a feature that Eve does not have and that the feet can be alpha’d out in parts to fit the various shoes.  As mens shoes are flat and many are resizable, its just a matter of alpha’ing out parts of the part and resizing the shoes.8e161ceac428f0b8e8f45d4485a87b06

Now we come to mesh body skin option, this one has a few more skins than the head hud, there are neck join textures as well.  As you see, the first picture is the SKIN TAB and the second is the ADD-ON tab.  The neck join to enable it you need to go to the ADD- ON to choose the sizes or hide it by click the NO NECK button.  Then go to the SKIN TAB to choose the neck join texture. REMEMBER that the circular bottom buttons are always to be clicked first of what part of the body you are wanting to colour or texture.

There are also nail and toenail tones.  A specular tab is on the very edge of the skin tab.

6d7ec7d2465b1d86da12579548fcd467 d5a47d14397aeff28c515e2204f1afbc

Now we go to the LAYER TAB, for clothing and tattoos

Ginger has a help concerning the debugging of the tattoo

To solve the  Going white underwater    you need to have your settings like this as shown

d55b1a0184c802d288c3bbd48012bd9b

For the clothing you need to have  your clothing layer on,  For any sheer system applier layer clothing remember to use the masquing and blending function.  To clear your clothing layers, use the CLEAR BUTTONS.  Still having issues, try the Rebake Texture button.  There are Adam applier creators which have worked hard to make official appliers for you to guarantee the quality of the product, but you can also use….

For more clothing options you can activate your Adam mesh body with the Omega Adam kit.  Yes you need to wear the Relay at all times.  For installation help on the Omega Adam
