===[COMMITTED]=== New Animation (Work in progress)

Recommended Posts

Yes, c4d work's on:

3D Studio (.3ds)

Allplan (.xml)

Bullet (.bullet)

COLLADA 1.4 (.dae)

COLLADA 1.5 (.dae)

Direct 3D (.x)

DXF (.dxf)

FBX (.fbx)

Illustrator (.ai)

RIB (.rib)

STL (.stl)

VRML 2 (.wrl)

Wavefront (.obj)

Could you upload the FBX here ? :)

Also make sure you are using 1.4 and not 1.5 :)

Import is bad in Blender and 3dsmax, though in 3dsmax only the weights are lost.

Do you have any options to apply scale ?

Also which axis is up on C4D ? In Blender and 0 A.D Y is up.

use this

http://www.mediafire.com/view/mxkab9m67ef220c/f_dress.dae

it's a non animated rigged character taken directly from the game and exported from C4d. If there's no problem means that i'm doing something wrong with the animations.

And XYZ axis are universal, also for cinema 4D

Maybe the section here about Collada works? (It is already rather old but I hope it still works)

Thanks, i'll see if that works

I like the gathering fruit loop :) nice work.

The building loop seems harder notice she's hammering. Maybe exaggerate it some more making the arm rise higher? closer to the actual animation (aoe style)

About the problem exporting... seems the problem is the bone's orientation, which may differ when exported from c4d. Do you have any options when exporting?

try this .3ds and this -90 .dae. I will continue doing the animations after i solves this problem.

Sorry for the late reply. Seems to be fixed, though I don't know what happens if you upload an anim.

i'll keep trying figure out how make it work...if i can't...well, i would have to learn how to use blender :)

Not that hard. However, if you can send me à 90° rotated anim we could try to see if it fails ^^

Try this.. For now I can't import it/fix it, sorry about that. Can you try 1.5 collada also ? We never know.

Also, I don't know if you can but try to test it on C4D R16, they fixed broken files on the release notes.

I hope if I can't fix it you won't be discouraged to work with Blender. I am really sorry...

There is an issue when bones are exported from .dae files to c4d, that's why the Y axis was pointing where normally Z has direction (90 degrees). And that's happen with every bone as a single item.

What i did was import the main model and bones from f_dress.dae, take out he binding, rotate every bone to his correct position, and then binding again. I'm losing textures and scale but i'm working on it, and also i'll have to make again all the animations... but i have the ideas, it wouldnt take me so much time. Even they probably will be getting better.

And yes, i already downloaded SVN thanks to enrique. I'll put the animations on a gameplay as soon as i can

Are you using the correct rig though ? If it can't close the hands it's the old we need to get rid off.

Yep, it's the correct one. and i have one suggestion:
it's more easier make some moves when there's a bone between the upper and lower part of the skeleton, So you can move the pelvis independent of the upper side. it's possible make it with out it, but that will take take more coordinated moves between the pelvis and the spine.
(right now the pelvis bones moves all the skeleton)
i don't know if this would make larger files, if it does i can keep working with the actual rig, it doesn't matter

Enrique has the word on it, I can't really say anything ^^ Just hopes it doesn't break my archer. In the blender file the IK were in the middle of the torso so you could move everything independently.

And that's why i didn't use that model. To make a good animation you can't control everything with IK, you need also FK...actually i only use IK for both foot, and hands only when they make contact with something.

See this tutorial, this will make it understand clearly what im talking about. (it's c4d but the animating works same in every program)

pd: obviously that's the way i'm animating, but you must find with what you're more confortable

now that i remember, i can make it work without the bone XD. Forget what i said.

Keep it up, even if you don't have the textures yet do you manage to transfer the anims at least ?
