I noticed Heidi has no spring. Whistling I was curious if we are going to be limited to version 5 characters for using spring on the women avatars? I like the hair and cloth effects but the spring is missing. I know Genesis characters have spring also, but have not tried to test the Genesis 2 characters so I don't know if they would have spring or not. Much more "Realistic" with spring. Just saying.

Thanks,

Springs a month ago were not possible, but with 3dXchange6, you can add them easily.  The extended bones are just sitting there waiting for your edits.



The video is uploading...just be patient for a few minutes and a sample demo is waiting to be processed.

Thank you Cricky. You are the man! I really appreciate this. I was getting worried my characters in the future would not have any spring. I have already purchased 3DXChange 6 Pipeline so I am ready to make the required adjustments.

Does this mean it will cost more money (buying Exchange) to get the same functionality we had in version 5? BTW, all older .spx files are invalid in version 6 even using G5 characters. This happens every version and it's annoying. How do we get the old springs to work on G5 characters in iClone 6?

I just tried Gwynn (G5) with Springs applied in 3dXchange5 and iClone5 and the Springs seemed to work in iClone6.  The SPX file will likely have to be saved after the character is verified to work in iClone6; you are right though, iClone6 does NOT read the SPX fles for iClone5 directly as a file import, which does seem a little strange until you look at the two files in comparison. (SEE Attached).

There is an additional line (Appears as Line 10) to SPX Version 1.2 beyond the SPX version 1.1 for iClone5.  There is an added "GROUP" column that coincides with the new line added.

People make such a big deal out of bouncing breasts. Sure, it's fun to set the parameters so they fly all over the screen with an aggressive  dance motion but let's face it, where are you going to show this and to whom? But that slight breast movement under a blouse or dress top really brings the female characters to life.  I've stayed away from animating iClone humans characters because of the stiff hair, the iron breasts and the poor texture quality. They're just not believable even as a representation of human. With G6, they're finally taking this seriously. The hair/collision is great, the bodies are terrific and the textures have improved tremendously. So what do they do? They leave out the springs and tell you to buy 3DX6. Give me a break!

Anyway, G5 characters DO have springs that work in iClone 6. I wasn't scrolling down enough to see the spring settings. I use the mouse wheel to move the mod panel but it seems it doesn't scroll all the way down. It always stops 2 or 3 sections from the very bottom and you have to use the side scroll bar to see the rest. Maybe it's just me. Thanks for the input.

Just an FYI to all, I was able to get the springs to work with a non-standard character I brought in from DAZ. I was very happy when it worked! The information provided by all of you has helped me tremendously so thank you very much!!
