TATARA displays both a sculpted prim and its texture.
A sculpted Prim can be edited in the five modes:
The five modes can be combined and used.
Furthermore, TATARA can correct coordinates for every control point in the BITMAP and TSUCHI mode.
For more information on the different modes, see below.

Caution: It is not guaranteed that a display of in TATARA will be exactly the same as the appearance of the Sculpted Prim in Second Life.

Operating environment
Windows XP/Vista - The environment where "Second Life" for Windows operates.
There is no installer.
You can uninstall only by deleting the file called TATARA.exe.
How to use Preview
You can drag an object and make it rotate.
You can see a sculpted prim in more detail than ROKURO Pro.
A red point is the control point chosen.
An orange line is the section chosen.
The gray lines are sections which do not reflect movement of the control point of the section chosen.
How to use Edit
You can select a single control point or a range of points to move together.
The points can be dragged, rotated or moved together.
Holding down the CTRL key during this movement of the points causes the arrangement of the control points to be distorted.
You can also lock the selected control point(s).
The Tabs in TATARA:
ROKURO is a Japanese turning lathe, a potter's wheel. ROKURO mode makes a solid lathe-type object.
The buttons on the lower left beneath the grid "<" and ">" chooses the section to edit.
TOKOROTEN is Japanese extruded jelly. TOKOROTEN mode makes a pushed-out object.
The buttons on the lower left "<" and ">" chooses the section to edit.
*Shapes using a combination of TOKOROTEN and ROKURO can be made.
However, these may not be entirely satisfactory.
If you left-click and drag in the grid area, you can choose control points.
You can also select multiple points by holding down the Shift Key.
Selection and release are determined by the control point clicked first.
You can reveal a pop up menu by right-clicking.
The control points can be adjusted in 1 or more pixel increments by changing the numeric value in the text box below the grid.
MAGE means bending in Japanese.
MAGE mode makes shapes similar to bent pipes such as a neon tube.
The section of MAGE is edited.
The center of a section is moved to the center of the edit display.
The object displayed by Orthographic projection from three directions is edited.
You can change the direction displayed with the buttons marked XZ, YZ and XY below the grid.
Here you may draw a texture, or draw on a texture you have already loaded.
Black Button- The color of the drawing pen is black.
Red Button- The color of the drawing pen is red.
Blue Button- The color of the drawing pen is blue.
White Button- The color of the drawing pen is white.
Eraser Icon Button- Eraser
A straight line can be drawn, by holding down the shift key while dragging the mouse.
How to use the Menus:
Texture Menu (On the far left of the menu bar)
Returns display to default texture.
-Load [FileName]
You can reload the texture which is displayed now without displaying a dialog box.
The image which will eventually cover your shape will be loaded. The software resizes the file size to 512x512. The file types that can be used are JPEG/PNG/BMP/PSD.
TATARA judges Stitching Type of a Sculpt Map automatically. When it not be recognized correctly, Please use NUIME.
You can save a texture. The size of a texture is 512x512. The file types that can be saved are PNG/TGA.
You can choose one type among Sphere, Torus, Plane and Cylinder. You can choose the aspect ratio of a sculpted prim from the following. 32x32(Default), 64x16, 128x8, 256x4, 16x64, 8x128, 4x256.
Sculpted Prim Texture is loaded from a bitmap or previously exported text. The form of the image which can be loaded is .tga .jpg .bmp .png .obj .txt.
* The size of Sculpted Prim must be either of 64x64, 128x128, 256x256, or 512x512.
* There is no compatibility in the ROKURO and TOKOROTEN export files. Only ROKURO's 33-point file is compatible.
-Save [FileName]
You can save the sculpt-map file which is displayed now without displaying a dialog box.
A sculpted prim bitmap (.tga), .obj file, and ROKURO/TOKOROTEN/MAGE export file is specified and outputted.
*An output sculpted prim bitmap's size is 64x64/128x128/256x256/512x512. The .obj file can be used by Wings3D and Blender.
You can set up Rotation Degree and Twist Degree.
You can set up the TGA size of file to save. 64x64 is the recommended size.
You can choose the way of rearranging a control point according to Level of Detail.
Copy Protection by transparent - When a Prim is modified, you can make it transparent to prevent the texture from being copied by screen capture.
Texture Pen Color - You can set Texture pen color.
Smooth Radius - You can set up the level of smoothing.
Auto Rename - When saving a file, you can change the name of a file automatically so that it may not be overwritten.
Fixed to Axis -You can separate the upper and lower points from the center of rotation in ROKURO and TATARA mode.
by the coordinate system of Second Life - You can save your sculpt-map file by the coordinate system of Second Life
The program is ended.
There is a 256-step UNDO and REDO function.
-Select All
All the control points currently displayed are chosen. The control point which is not displayed in an edit display is not chosen.
When you choose more than one control point, the following "Edit" functions are also available from a right-click popup menu. When you don't select any control points, the popup menu is not enabled. Using your mouse, draw a box around the points you want to control together, or select them individually while holding down the "Shift" button.
A chosen control point turns counterclockwise around those centers of gravity.
A control point turns clockwise around the center of gravity of the chosen control point.
