I think there is a bug in how the bones and weight maps are set up for the Legs and arms in the FBX export from CC. Is this a problem with other software packages?
Here’s the issue with the weightmaps. I fixed the Left calf in the screen shot and you can see how deformed theRight Calf is.
Select a bone CC_Base_L_Foot
Notice that it runs down the entire calf, righton top of the CC_Base_L_CalfTwist02 & CC_Base_L_CalfTwist02. Both CalfTwistbones have their own weight maps assigned.
The Bone Weight map is set to CC_Base_L_Foot butthat weight is assigned to the actual foot and not the calf
If I set the Bone Weight Map to “None” the baddeformation goes away as you can see from the screen shot.
This is so close to working. If the weight map issue could be fixed, it would be a great add for the Lightwave workflow.
I've attached a .rar file with the FBX and .lws file for debugging
Here are the details on how I have my workflow between iClone, CC and Lightwave.
Lightwave Layout: 2015.3 (64 Bit)
OS: Windows 10 all service packs updated
Load Base Female
Send to iClone 7
In iClone 7
In the 04_04_CC MixMove_Female folder, addWalk.iMotion to the CC2 character
Collect Clip> Add MotionPlus to Library andsave out iMotion file
In Lightwave 2015.3 Layout
In the Setup tab, Disable the following:
Enable “Parent in Place”
File> Import> FBX Import, and select theFBX file from above.
FBX Importer Dialog
Open Scene Editor
Select “CC_Base_Hip” and delete it but not its decedents.Need to keep all other bones.
Select the “fbx_base_bone_transformer” androtate the bones +90 degrees on the Pitch to align the bones with the bodymesh. Note: I need to do this sincesome of the mesh is attracted to this bone as the character moves away. Thinkit’s a weight map issue.
Select Menu dropdown > “Select All Bones fromScene” to select all bones in the object
In the Setup Tab
Go to the “Modify” menu
Orientation dropdown and “Record Bone Rest Positionr”
Don’t panic, bones will be a mess J
Click “Enable Deform” and things will be allgood. J
