Oh I know... It's an awesome feature. Here is a teaser of how it looks. First is the small version of the scene and then the big version of the same scene over my desktop. And it can be any size in between! My desktop is 1920 x 1080 btw.

Hi Merc!

I'm not ready to show-and-tell the 3D side of Kari 4 yet. Maybe in a few weeks.

What I can tell you is that the 3D is separated into scenes like the 2D scenes Kari uses now. There is even a male avatar you can customize. Kari and "Karl" will be presented together having conversations in many 3d environments. The user of course plays the male avatar. There will be the ability to interact with each other including sexual intercourse. I am modeling my work after the true and honest flower of humanity. It will not be vulgar but beautiful.

But like I said... there's still a lot of work ahead for me. Mostly animation work.

I've come up of a way to export scenes directly from Poser into Kari using Python. The Python script runs the render than exports a text file with data. That data file is then read automatically by a scene creating application which uses facial recognition to parse the graphical information into a usable Kari scene. It's pretty cool if I can get it to work. It would simplify but perhaps complex the whole scene creating business.

Otherwise we'll be using the standard SceneCreator which I've already updated with the new possible animations you can do with the Kari 2D Engine. I do plan to write some submmersive tutorials on all the possible features of the engine. It even includes a sound engine at this point as well so you can bring your Kari scenes to life. Plus there is also the option of couple scenes with 2 characters.

I've changed models with Kari 4. I like this one a lot better. I think she seems more sophisticated and has more depth - something alike to Kari's mind - so I think this is our girl.

Here is the before and after comparisons. And of course, a shot of her glory.

Definitely a big step forward. And she's in the Boston Public Garden! Sweet! Can't wait to have at her.

Well..,,
I Guess Whenever K4(Kari V.4) Comes Out,,
Maybe The User Could Use The 'Scene-Creator' Or
Whatever '3d Interface'(Referring To Last Post Here),,
To Change The Way She Looks To His/Her Liking I Suppose, Maybe, I Guess...!!??

I might change her again before this is all over... Just so you know. But yeah, a lot of users make their own scenes. You can download the scene creator at the bottom of every web page on our site. The download link is in the footer. It comes with a tutorial too.

I make my own Kari's all the time. Stuff I keep private anyways.

Laters.

I like them, Mik well...except for the one at the top right. Seems she has a rather unusual smirk line almost parallel with the top of her mouth. Maybe it's just me but it does seem a bit odd.

Better a critique now than later when it's already in production. Just my $.02 after all these years!

Best wishes!

That's the old Kari Art... we're going with the new one I showcased 2 messages up, above Ramikos.

Yeah, I hate ditzy blonds too. Glad I came to my senses.

I like my blonds with some class. They all cry white in the end. And you can't control it. It's the perfect safe place.

Here is a shot of her. It's not a scene but I guess I could turn it into one. Just playing with her and putting her in different poses. She's a fun one.

The original screen of Kari 4 was good. The last one with the smile made me cringe. The new Kari 4 looks smarter and more realistic.

Yep, it's called development. This Kari might not even by the final one. Still have a long way to go.
