Hi All, I have a client that has a letter X as an avatar from their name. I have a WearNotch Mocap system and used 10 notches to capture motion data to use for the 10 bones that I have inside the 3D X. The Mocap data is an FBX file that has a standard human form, but my X object is non human form. I need to map that FBX data to the X and I am wondering if / how that is possible in 3D Xchange? When I start to record the mocap data it has the wearer stand in a neutral position to
calobrate. When I press record I have my actor raise his hands in to a T-Pose which then happens about a second in to the recording. Then after that I have my actor do his best to walk and move like the letter X. Smile I included 3 images. The 3D model of the X, and 2 images from the start and T pose of the FBX model. Can someone explain to me the process or send me to any docs or videos that describes how to remap the FBX joints to the X 3D model jonts?

Thanks!

No expert here but if this were me I'd add enough bones to your X model so that 3DXChange will accept it as a non-standard human (you'd need head, neck for sure -- that might be all you'd need but without that model I can't say for certain).  

At that point it would accept any BVH data you could port over, so it would be easy-peasy to map any of the stuff you captured.

Hi, thanks for the response. So your saying to add bones in that I would not use anyway? Even though the X has no neck or head, your saying to add those joints anyway to make it work?

Yes, I would add them so that I could use any "traditional" BVH captures, which would just ignore those it doesn't use.

We are all curious about the Wearnotch capture system. Let us know how it works out.

I've seen a couple people on the forum using Notch.

Back in the office today so I will add what I think are just the head, neck and maybe feet joints and see how that works. Do I need to tweek the model in to an T-Pose too to make it work?

Thanks!

T-Pose too to make it work?
 not TPose needed if the arm bone are not binding to the Mesh 
But I'm  wonderedbecause the rig is not humanlike , retargeting makes only sence if want  you transfert the RL Bone rig to a similar rig for to use the RL Motions. 
What should your letter X do ?  Maybe convert to a non human Character is the better option ?
