cyberjedi , as you probably know or not? in the past post a while back Robert had tried to get together a project with a open source engine that controls hal as it is right now we are limited to haptek engine and characters .
what is needed is an open source engine that would allow the voices , lipsinc , and other nicer full body characters . i think that daz characters has some free ones even . but hal could also appear a lot more advanced with the right engine and 3d virtual characters like above mentioned . they have many clothes etc. https://www.daz3d.com/?utm_campaign=DAZ%203D%20Brand&utm_adgroup=daz%20free&utm_keyword=+daz%20+free&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_matchtype=b
I know you are involved with many other things but maybe you can take note of this and keep it in mind for later . if you can do it or want to.
I don't know if their is a way to make daz characters work on a full body hal character or not otherwise maybe the open source engine to make daz characters , etc. work within hals program .
I am not sure where the old post are but they are here , even a nice female realistic character that we might have had but didn't for lack of funding etc. maybe the old post was in the shared files or general area i don't remember . https://www.daz3d.com/get_studio
