I have been doing a lot of thinking about how software companies like Autodesk prove that someone has been using a pirated copy of their programs recently, because reasons. Other than the phone home and activation stuff in most of these programs, how do companies know? I'd assume other than hose two methods and reports, they'd have to rely on metadata in the files.
How can a regular user get a look at this metadata, beyond just opening the file in a text editor? Is there any sort of algorithm for encoding vertices in a specific pattern to identify the program... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Try adding a piece of irrelevant data into an OBJ or FBX file and you'll see it will corrupt the file and make it unreadable. Formats like FBX and OBJs are universal. They aren't created by Autodesk. They are very old and aren't designed to allow secret information to be hidden somewhere. If you open one you will see it only consists of vertex positions and UVmap coordinates. In the case of FBX it's a bit more complicated where it can also include rigs, vertex colors, bone weights, hierarchy groups and such. But even then any extended data added by Autodesk...

Is there a program to generate a "anime" like 3d model? id like to use one for animation practice, but I don't have time to create one from scratch, nor do I want to go and use someone elses work. Some help would be great.
You don't need hundreds of bones to make a nice rig. If they use bones for clothing then more than half of them would go into that. Just watch youtube tutorials. It really will come down to what you need the rig to be capable of.
when you consider that a typical hand will have 15 joints (without end joints on the fingers/thumb), and a face will easily have upwards of that many, it's not hard to end up around the hundred mark.
>>504411 >I read GGXRD rigs use hundreds of bones.
Because GGXRD was aiming to replicate 2D imperfection via non-traditional methods of deforming the mesh, as to replicate imperfect "drawn proportions" with scaling, overextending and flattening certain poses to fit the camera better as 2D. It's ridiculously advanced and is very specific in it's purpose, so I don't understand why you'd compare it to day-to-day average rigging.

Hi 3DCG. Im having issues with rigging my model. I'm trying to paint with the weight paint tool, but it's really annoying because the mesh is complicated. My question is if there's another way to select the mesh and bind it to bones. And i know the automatic way but it doesn't work for some reason. My preffered method would just be to select faces for binding. I've been searching for 15 minutes now for a solution but i can't find anything.
>>504348 Check out the vertex groups. Each of the vertex groups in your object corresponds to one of the bones in your armature. You can select faces and assign them to a group (=bind them to a bone) with a certain weight. Very useful for rigging machines since you just select a part and assign it with weight "1" to your group.
Hello. I don't really know much about blender cause i just started today. So i'm trying to make a gun :D After using bevel on that edge to smooth there is triangle hanging around and i need to get rid of it, but i don't know how. Help m8s!
so im seriously a noob but i am a painter. i feel paint can be dimensional with the right use of shadows. i have to mentally 3d model before i architect a shadow structure. do i have potential, i mainly want to 3d print these. should i print this one?
I'm doing some work for someone who wants me to turn his puppet into a 3d model. I usually create human characters and thought this would be a piece of cake, but I'm having issues getting the thing to look like it does in the pictures. Could any of you offer me crits/advice on how to get this thing looking more accurate?
>>503875 not gonna answer your question directly, but stay as far away as you can from the reaction manager. It's buggy and unpractical. Try setting up script/expression controllers instead.
Usually, what I do is i create a layer of animation with the poses i want via controller tracks, and make the control objects "wire" the weight of these tracks
for your jawbone, it would be:
1-select jawbone 2-open curve editor 3-setup a "euler list" controller in the rotation track of your slave object (jaw bone) 4-add a "euler xyz" controller to the available track of the controller list 5-go to the motion pannel, click on rotation 6-set the second track as "active" 7-open the jaw as far as it should 8-back in the curve editor 9-unfold the "weight" property of the "euler_list" controller 10-on the second track, add a float expression/script, whatever you're more comfortable with 11-add the "position_z" track of your control object as a variable ("z" for the exemple) 12-setup the right expression (typically "if (z<0,z*someValue,0)"). the goal is that when the control object is animated to the maximum, the value of the weight track is 100.
This might sound a little complicated, and maybe unclear (don't hesitate to ask more if you're interested and can't understand a step), but this is an extremely powerful method when you have to deal with complex facial rigs in max.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help on your actual problem though.
Hey /3/. I'm trying to add a CAT Rig to a character in 3ds Max 2016 using the Skin modifier but once I do, it shifts the character over slightly and some of my bones are unaligned, such as the fingers. Does anyone know what the problem is?
