• I want to use SMPL for commercial purposes. What do I do?

  • For commercial uses, please contact Michael J. Black (black@tue.mpg.de) or Body Labs Inc (smpl@bodylabs.com).
  • Is DMPL also available for download?

  • Not yet. We are working on the scripts to enable people to use DMPL in standard graphics packages.
  • Is Blender/3dsMax/etc supported?

  • We are working on adding more scripts to support popular packages. If you have a particular request, send us an email.
  • I want to compare directly with the model from the paper. How do I get it?

  • We make available the latest model of SMPL and we think it is what 99% of people will want. It has several improvements over the one in the paper but it also has fewer shape blend shapes. If you have a research project that requires direct comparison to the one in the paper, please contact Michael J. Black to request permission. Only bonafide research projects will be considered.
  • Can I get the DQBS version?

  • We have only made available the LBS version because it is more accurate than SMPL-DQBS, as explained in the paper. It is also much simpler and more standard. If for some reason you need DQBS, please contact us at smpl@tuebingen.mpg.de.
  • My question isn’t answered here.

  • Please mail us at smpl@tuebingen.mpg.de and we will try to help.
