Update Info


2020/04/05
 
  ・ SmartPhone version (Version 1.0.3) & PC version (Version 1.04) released
 
 Before ver1.03, if the baking process was animated inside Maya or Blender, the processing became heavy and it was difficult to bake correctly. To solve the problem, we have added a function to record animation in the smartphone app and receive the animation slowly.
 
 In Blender, after loading the latest version of the add-on, pressing "waiting for connection" and then pressing the "Bake Recorded Animation" button, the animation recorded in the smartphone is baked on Blender. In Maya, if you press the "Bake Recorded Animation" button after pressing the "wait connection" button, baking is performed in the same way.
 
 Also, it is now possible to export animated face objects in FBX Ascii format. For software such as Blender that does not support FBX Ascii, export to FBX2012, use the FBX Converter provided by Autodesk for free, convert it to FBX binary format, and then read it.
 
 The processing in Blender is a heavy problem, but it happened before ver1.03 because animation was poured at 60 FPS. From ver1.04, the initial value in Blender version was set to 20FPS and the operation was a little lighter.

PC version (Version 1.02) released

 

The amount of movement of the eyeball can now be adjusted by individual weight values up, down, left, and right.

Until Version 1.01, the weight of each BlendShape and ShapeKey ranged from 0 to 1.

From Version1.02, the weight range has been extended from 0 to 100.

If the weight of the expression that is difficult to respond is set to 1.0 or more, the sensitivity of the reaction will increase.

-"3DCG Software IP Address" and "3DCG Software Port" are provided.

By changing this IP address, you can transfer data received from Windows to Mac etc...

[Changes in Blender]
