Biped (.bip) Animation Batch Retargeting & FBX export

3 votes

This script was made to retarget animations so that changes could be made to the biped's proportions throughout production.

I made this for making my life easier between Max and Unity (though it could be used in any max-based pipeline). Unfortunately Unity has no native retargeting, unless your team is using Mecanim.

Export FBX to Unreal

1 vote

Designed specifically for Unreal 3 workflow, this script provides a quick way to export scene data with minimal interaction with scene objects.

The script will quickly export static meshes and their existing collisions, skeletal meshes or skeletal animations using the FBX format.

For a full list of features see the attached PDF guide. The guide is also installed with the script and accessible via the interface.



Proxy Edit

19 votes

This is a script that enables editing of VRayProxy objects instantly in the scene they are currently.

It is easy to use:

1. Drop the .ms file in the viewport to run the script. A dialog appears.

2. Click the Pick proxy button and select a proxy from the scene. It becomes a editable mesh with material applied.

3. You can change geometry, uvw mapping, apply modifiers etc.

Cryengine 3 export preparation

0 votes

This script is specific for use with Cryengine 3. So if you don't intend to use this with Cryengine 3, this script will not work and be of no use for you.

It creates all the appropriate layers for the lods and main object, creates the dummy and linking the mesh to the dummy. Creating the proper material, submaterials (4 by default) for the model and the proxies, assigning the crytek shader and the physicalize (no draw) to the proxies.

Left for you is assigning the proper IDs manually to the correct submaterials (if needed).

Max to Fusion

Bake selected scene objects and export an FBX file which can be loaded into Eyeon Fusion to assist with compositing. Offers greater control and flexibility than the standard FBX exporter.

Copies horizontal position of the biped onto the root object and links the biped to the root.

Two useful uses for this script:

  1. Use it to create a root for your biped (using the Static Root option) - so you can place your biped with animation anywhere in the scene without adding extra keyframes. Simply move the root instead of the biped itself.
  2. Some game engines require a moving root to calculate biped's position in the game environment space. With a moving root the biped itself actually stays in place and only the root moves.
