This is the tool to repair OBJ file of TATARA 5.0.137-144. TATARA 5.0 user can use it.
TATARA displays both: a Sculpted prim and its texture.
Sculpted Prims can be edited in the five modes:
ROKURO/TOKOROTEN/MAGE/WAPPA/TSUCHI.
The five modes can be combined and used together.
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 the prim in TATARA will be exactly the same as the appearance of the Sculpted Prim in Second Life.
TATARA 5.0 users can use their password.
TATARA 3.0, 4.0 users need to purchase an updated license from the serial box in SL at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Freedom%20City/230/49/24

Operating environment
Windows XP/Vista/7 - The environment where "Second Life" for Windows operates.
Install
There is no installer.
Uninstall
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 are not chosen, and will not move or be adjusted.
A green line is a joint of the sculpted prim.
You can stretch the object by x,y,z trackbars.
Disp Frame - You can check the maximum size of a sculpted prim.
You can hide the preview with the left edge button.
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).
If you set Edit Level to Middle or Far, other control points will be rearranged from the control point displayed by Level of Detail. The method of rearrangement can be selected by Setup on File menu.
You can display the Bitmap tab on another pane.
*The stretch of edit is restricted.
The Tabs in TATARA:
ROKURO
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 ">" choose the section to edit.
TOKOROTEN
TOKOROTEN is Japanese extruded jelly. TOKOROTEN mode makes a pushed-out object.
The buttons on the lower left "<" and ">" choose the section to edit.
*Shapes using a combination of TOKOROTEN and ROKURO can be made.
However, these may not be entirely satisfactory.
MAGE
MAGE means bending in Japanese.
MAGE mode makes shapes similar to bent pipes such as a neon tube.
The buttons on the lower left "<" and ">" chooses the section to edit.
You can change the direction displayed with the 6 buttons marked XZ, YZ and XY below the grid.
WAPPA
In WAPPA, a section of MAGE is edited.
The center of a section is moved to the center of the edit display.
*Shapes using a combination of MAGE and WAPPA can be made.
However, these may not be entirely satisfactory.
TSUCHI
The object displayed by Orthographic projection from three directions is edited.
You can change the direction displayed with the 6 buttons marked XZ, YZ and XY below the grid.
If you check "Disp Only Surface", you can edit only the control point which constitutes the face displayed.
If you uncheck "Disp Edit Line", only the edit line selected by "Edit Line" on the View menu will be displayed.
BITMAP
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.

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.
