This is a port of MakeHuman to Python 3 and PyQt5.
The testing vision for this code is to build a community release that includes the ported code and often-used, user-contributed plug-ins. We hope that the utility of this integrated functionality is sufficient to entice a larger cohort of testers who get value-added in exchange for the possibility of uncovering deficiencies in our port. When testing verifies it's robustness it should a suitable replacement for the current bitbucket code extending the future of MakeHuman beyond the Python 2 "end-of-life".
If you have any questions about the software and its usage, please make a request in our forum: http://www.makehumancommunity.org/forum. We are not going to answer support requests on the bug tracker!
WARNING: THE CODE IN THIS REPOSITORY IS CURRENTLY NOT FIT FOR PRODUCTION USE!
If you want a stable release of MakeHuman, see http://www.makehumancommunity.org/content/downloads.html
This said, the code in the master branch will work if a few basic requirements are met:
- You must use a graphics card capable of using the opengl calls MH rely on. It is currently not easy to say exactly which these are.
Builds for Windows platforms can be downloaded at: http://download.tuxfamily.org/makehuman/nightly/. These builds include all required dependencies.
If you rather run the code from source:
- Install git (https://git-scm.com/) with LFS support (https://git-lfs.github.com/). Modern git clients have LFS support included per default.
- Make sure the command "git" is available via the PATH variable.
- Install python 3.5.x or later from https://www.python.org/ (or via your system's package management)
- Figure out how to run "pip": https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/ (it should have been installed automatically by python), but on Linux use your default package menagemnt system
- Use "pip" to install dependencies:
- "pip install numpy"
- "pip install PyQt5"
- "pip install PyOpenGL"
- on Debian based systems you need to install: python3-numpy, python3-opengl, python3-pyqt5, python3-pyqt5.opengl, python3-pyqt5.qtsvg
- Use git to clone https://github.com/makehumancommunity/makehuman.git (or download the source as a zip)
- Run the "download_assets_git.py" script in the "makehuman" subdirectory of the source code.
- Optionally also run:
Having done this, you can now start MakeHuman by running the makehuman.py script.
There are three standard branches and some additional developer working branches:
- master: This is where you will find the latest version of MakeHuman.
Read-only reference branches
- bitbucket-stable: This is the code as it looks in the "stable" branch at bitbucket. This is the ancestor of what is now the "master" branch.
- bitbucket-default: This is the code as it looks in the "default" branch at bitbucket.
In addition you may from time to time see feature branches (usually named _feature...), which are removed after having been merged to the master branch.
