swOOOp speaks english?
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
a solution of sorts or rather a workaround
found my beta test backup exe

By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
I used to be able to import FBX figures as animated props
either Daz figures etc or my own rigging
but now the animation option exporting to iClone is no longer able to be ticked
this was useful for duplicating moving lowpoly crowds etc
when and why was this function removed?
they can be exported as nonhuman with animation embedded in perform but are then not props able to be duplicated and merged
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
did reinstall from my account
still did not fix

your 3dx5 is the beta version ?

Hi Wendy ,

Can you detail your problem ? I don't understand very well , sorry .
Prop in fbx format with animation embed work very well in 3dx5.51 .






it used to be so until very recently for me
maybe last update
now they only save as nonhuman iAvatars with embeded animation
it is greyed out saving as a prop
not just figures, cars with turning wheels and other stuff created in carrara etc
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
still no answer other than using my backup BIN folder to reimport them

Daz genesis decimated in Ultimate unwrap as well as decimator
find the latter does a better job on the exported from iClone 3dx5pipeline animated FBX files than decimating original figure in Daz,
these can be saved as animated props in the earlier version and merged as animated crowds,

I too would love to see sw00000p publish the proof to back up his statement that installing an owned previous version of rather iClone or 3DXchange is in any way illegal.

The EULA clearly states that we may install 2 copies of a given version without any problems. It has also been stated on the forum by many RL employees that a user can have previous versions of the software installed on one system - it has even often been stated that keeping an older version of the software installed can help resolve problems when trying to complete projects before moving on to the newer version.

I have an XP boot hard drive with IC 3, 4 and 5 installed - and have never received any letters from the RL legal dept. telling me to remove any of them.

I also politely ask sw00000p to compose his answer using standard English sentence conventions - this may be difficult for a non-native speaker, but there are tools like Google to help with the translation.

oh Sen
your teapot works now
not my files
the mystery deepens
was a legal copy, sent to me with serial by Reallusion, I just had not entered the serial in my account, reason it was not there
I never chased it up to find out why
I am dumb that way, did same thing with PoserPro when I bought it
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
thx Hj,it used to indeed work that way until recently
I did so often
but now it no longer does, am thinking it might the fbx itself at fault since Sen's worked
I must have changed something in my settings maybe, that piano for instance is just a prop with keys that move according to a midi file
only recently I indeed got a figure walking in too
it has only been couple of weeks it is broken.
I must sleep now but maybe later examine ones that worked in the past and see if they still do.
I find also my 3dx5 pipeline removes animation from props sent to it breaking them.
it tells me it is removing it too!
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
no animation option for me
my 3dx5 is broke it seems
was beta test bonus version not available in my downloads
if I replace will no longer have pipeline
damn might have to BUY pipeline by looks, seems my freebie pressie from RL no good anymore
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
example Poser midi piano
can import with key animation as nonhuman only
used to be able as iProp before
sad but true

By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
I assume you added the animation in iclone
I still cannot get my animated rigging to import except as a nonhuman iAvatar
or scale aor move the one you did
I am going to try unistalling both iC5 and 3dx5
run ccleaner, reboot and reinstall
if that fails might try both on my laptop
thx for looking
I am getting frustrated but not gonna let it beat me Hehe

well that did not work
I wonder if having the Max trial a few months ago borked my FBX?
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
why might I ask with due respect, is it not legal to install an earlier build of iClone and 3dxchange?
I do actually have older versions of standard not pro one even on a Reallusion back up disc
I presume the update when you register it changes the build you could just choose not to download the newer version.
have not looked but might even have an earlier build of 3dx4
I do not buy into conspiracy theories, the function might have been lost due to a conflict with other features added.
for instance autodetect and recognition for iAvatars and Daz Genesis which more or less unfortunately means also these cannot be imported as props as a result.
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
I did do one thing that might have broken it
tried reimporting exported pinned physics cloth
kept crashing it or importing not as pinned physics cloth
By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
I just registered that serial now it is in my account downloads
odd
crosspost
no the one Bruce sent after
I never registered it it seems

Hi Wendy

Daz Genesis can be imported as Props with animation





Do not convert the figure, but save the figure as a prop with animation.

Seem to be very strange .

Test with this example : a simple teapot with 20 frames , no problem in 3dx5.51 for me .

By Sen - 6 Years Ago
very strange , no problem for me . Or I don't understand your problem ?


By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
I found today it has mysteriously fixed itself
By Sen - 6 Years Ago
Hi Wendy ,

Can you detail your problem ? I don't understand very well , sorry .
Prop in fbx format with animation embed work very well in 3dx5.51 .





By wendyluvscatz - 6 Years Ago
I have noticed one other oddity
the not visible option also is greyed out on my imports
yet all works on Sen's example as shown in image
tried a different year for FBX
I want so much to solve this
apparently it is my FBX files not 3dx5 as Sen's example proves
but is consistently failing with carrara, makehuman, Ultimate Unwrap and other software not just Daz studio

ok I got a badly rigged moth I threw together in carrara to test if anyone wishes too
reward, you can keep and use the moth unrestricted Tongue
