[ALPHA] SmoothJazz 13-0126-2036 - 26th January 2013 by peter

This is a tool for editing Sims 3 JAZZ resources, which are involved in animations.

With many thanks to TigerM - who has moved on from simming and has kindly donated his source code to the community, which forms the origin of this tool.

So keep your previous version handy and do let me know if there are any problems -- and, more importantly, if everything works.

SmoothJazz_13-0126-2036.exe: Windows Easy Installer version

SmoothJazz_13-0126-2036.7z: Unpack-It-Yourself version

I found a tutorial related to making Jazz scripts here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Tutorial:Sims_3_Custom_Animations - Inge
