Sharing animation..resizing problem
« on: September 23, 2008, 05:17:49 PM »

Hi!

I´ve got a question concerning biped animation files and mesh files.

I´ve got a character file which contains the mesh and the hidden bones with no animation at all. Then I´ve got several animation files for i.e. walking with only the bones. This works perfectly, but the trouble is that the two "bone-setups" have to be exactly the same. If another character wants to share an animation, the character changes its size to the size of the bones in the animation file.

Is there a way of sharing animations without this "resizing"-problem?
Bye,
Oli

Well scaling is part of the animation. Not being 3D artist, I'm not able to say how realistic it is to store animations without scaling, it's probably not. How about resizing meshes of the other actors appropriately?

Well, it´s not a big problem, but I was just wondering if it´s possible to share animations between small and taller characters for example.

No because every frame of bone's animation have position and rotation parameters recorded
