Re: Max 2009 and exspression ?

[quote=Far_Star] I was able to get the .c3d motion capture in to Max by use of motion builder. [/quote]

Are you able to drive a facial rig with it?

Re: Arena MoCap for Second Life

If you have motionbuilder you can transfer the animation from the arena skeleton to the SL skeleton. Other than that you can try to edit the hierarchy at the beginning of the arena file to match the SL hierarchy but the results might not be that great.

Re: Expression setup question

I thought the beta was just for body mocap not face. I don't have an expression license yet (just researching it at the moment).

Expression setup question

Since all the cameras are pointed at the face, how do you setup the ground plane? Do you have an estimated release date for the Daz Studio plugin? Thanks.

Re: expression max plug in

[quote=NaturalPoint - Yoshi]Yes. Also since the head morphs are different, the expression plugin only supports millenium version 4 characters at the moment. [/quote]

Cool. Maybe you could require users to create a similar set of morphs for their characters in max.

Re: expression max plug in

Re: PC Laptop Recommendation for Arena?

Can you use a mac laptop with bootcamp? Anyway I don't recommend HP. I have one and it works but, I can't start/restart the computer with the cameras attached. It's about 2 years old running XP so maybe this isn't an issue anymore, but that's my experience.
