Autoweight - Automatic skinning tool for 3ds Max

20 votes

Autoweight is a script designed for 3D Studio Max helping you speeding up the skinning process of characters and machines.
You define special polygon regions and the script finds the appropriate bones, calculates the appropriate skin-vertices and sets up smooth transitions between those regions.

There are also Youtube video tutorials explaining the script step-by-step.

The new version 1.0 comes with an installer so you don't need to hassle around with the mzp-stuff anymore.

Auto mesh Skinning

13 votes


This script is for fast and accurate mesh skinning, but it won't generate skin for production ready. There will by always something to correct weights.

It's very simple all You have to do to set slice boxes. Just watch video and everything should be clear.

In version 0.6 there is simple automatic mirroring made. The rigg should be set in x=0 position.

All comments and suggestions are welcome.

------------ version 0.7 -----------

- Script didn't work with bones which had space in names - Not any more :]

Automatic quality rig for all lovers of animation on 3ds Max !

WHY ?

Maya already has a wide selection of quality rigs, but 3ds Max doesn't.

So for the animation fans looking for a quality rig for 3ds Max, without any notion of rigging required, LH | Auto-rig, an automated rig, was developed. Powerful, it works with all kinds of characters (biped, quadruped or others), with a UI for animating as well as other animation scripts.

AutoBones: New auto-rigging tool for 3ds Max

2 votes

Hello, my name is Kevin Mackey.

During my time as an animator and technical artist, I have developed a tool called AutoBones, a system for
1) quickly creating character rigs using the Max bones system
2) allowing each chain of bones to be keyframed as a single object, and
3) switching seamlessly between IK and FK animation.

I have run a beta test in order to confirm a high degree of performance and stability, and am now making a commercial version available, including a 30-day free trial.

Complete assistance to skin any 3ds Max rig !

LH | Auto-Skin will automate all the heavy skinning, leaving only finition to make manuelly, or even, in somes cases, skinning will not need editing! To make this operation, the tool will generate a "sliced" character/object, animators will be able to use this low character/object to animate more faster!
