SoulburnScripts Updated Sept 18th 2008

20 votes

NOTICE: I had to make some major changes to sLib to remove several recursion bugs that could cause max to crash. I've successfully removed the bugs, but it's possible I may have introduced new ones, despite a lot of testing to make sure all of the functions still work correctly. If you see any weirdness where scripts you know worked aren't working as expected anymore, please get in touch with me immediately. Thanks.

Updated several older scripts, here's the major updates:

News from the Polyboost website:

PolyBoost 4.0 has now been released! Almost all parts of PolyBoost have now been converted to c++ using the 3ds max SDK which means a lot for the speed and efficiency of the tools.

Dual Quaternion finally landed on 3dsmax!

27 votes

3dsmax has linear vertex blending for skinning by default, this causes a lot of artifact during bones rotation, especially
the classic candywrap effect. Dual Quaternion skinning mantains volume a lot better, BUT it cannot be used alone as general solution. In some situations you still would like to mantain linear skinning AND with XrayBlendSkin YOU CAN!
You can even paint the amount of Dual Quaternions influence.
Features:
- Dual quaternion skinning to avoid candy wrap artifacts
- Interactive bind between linear and dual quaternions.
- Paint blending
