Hi, I am currently trying to create a project using the API from IMVU. Basically, you can use your IMVU avatar into Unity.
So I am able to place my avatar into my scene via 'RagDoll' script/demo from the IMVU assess. (Will provide screenshots)
So, my avatar is just in 'idle' mode, she does have an animation by just rotating around in one spot like, she moves her legs and she turns around and moves her body parts like just turning around to show off the avatar's different angles, bare in mind this is just from the RagDoll script/canvas which has been added onto the avatar.
Okay, I am able to apply a FIRST PERSON camera, like Skyrim and Minecraft so I see her just moving around. What I would like is to control her, using a third person camera like a Tomb Raider game or even The Last Of Us kind-of camera but, when I try to apply the camera and press play, the avatar disappears, I tried to add the 'Ethan' model too and he also disappears.
I don't know how to add animations onto either and I looked up this 'Parent' and 'Child' thing but I could not understand or apply the code.
I don't think the IMVU API comes with animations for the avatar so I really do not know where to start either. If I could just create a camera and not make her disappear and control her and make her run like a Tomb Raider game, that would be amazingalt text]
