Do most NSFW model makers and animators use Rigify for their model interface?

Is it really good enough to get the job done vs. making your own rig with bone drivers and constraints? It seems a little too good to be true.

If you're working with ripped game models for animation without much modification, i found it's easier to just modify their basic skeleton into a rig than to try to match every weight group so that it would fit the rigify rig and still fuck with weight painting afterwards. Sucks there are no tutorials for improving ripped models though, i'd kill for some facial bone setup tricks or just handy mechanisms to add to my stuff.

there isn't, and even if there were - the blenderchuds just cant cope with staying contained.

So after learning and studying rigging and skin weights, testing dozens of models and creating my own character, I found out this is not really enough.
Im using Maya and saw many of the most complex models out there use corrective blendshapes.
Is there any specific tutorial for these? Critical areas like knees, elbows, the waist area and similar poses.

I tried creating a blendshape, assign that one to a control (elbow) and activate when it reaches a certain angle. But that doesnt really work out at all.

>Is this necessary? How -should- it be done? Which is the correct way?

You are making a rookie mistake that is to consider human bone structure same as rig.

Don't do that.

Human body has gliding objects, has stretching, bulging and all that bio shit that people simulate nowdays for big movie productions.

What you need to consider is topology and bone placement.

Like the image aboe, i can only imagine that You didn't do the knee joints breakaways, and indeed you probably moved the middle of the joint too close to the kneecap, away from the bending point.

Blendshapes arent supposed to fix Your mistake fully. They are just there for minor tweaks mostly.

Why? What's the actual process? Wouldn't it just be developing the 3D -> 2D process once and then you can just put the model in different poses and pump out 2D images? That seems way faster than drawing the same character in different poses in 2D.

The edit and keyframe the normals of the mesh per frame to control what's in light/shadow, what is a highlight or bounced light, etc. The texture of hair and cloth folds are edited in as well. The shader colors everything after normal editing is done.
>>
>>919390
I forgot some things, but normal editing is the biggest reason why Arc System's method takes so long. The outlines and mesh are animated/deformed per frame, normal editing is used to keep colors consistent during smear frames. It's difficult to make all of these changes look good without a lot of training, so Arc Systems probably has a small number of animators to costs down.

How should I build my skeleton to support skirts and dresses in a game engine?

I have something rigged up like pic related where I have two-bone chains going out in 8 directions around the hip bone. I have a collision sphere that collides with the thigh bone and presses the skirt bone out of the way, preventing collision with the legs. My character has modular clothing so I activate and deactivate the bones as needed.

It works for the most part, but the length of the bones or how big the collision spheres should be just never seems right. I'm also struggling with my weight painting where the transition between waist and skirt is either too sharp or too soft. There's either not enough weight to accommodate crouching or there's too much weight and it abruptly goes from no physics at once vertex to jutting out at the next.

I really want to avoid having custom skeletons for different kinds of outfits. It would be much better for me to have one single humanoid skeleton that supports a variety of chest/leg garments.

I think people import baked animations and use the game engine to apply cloth physics.
>>
>>919272
kill yourself faggot uvu :DDDD
>>
>>919299
this is what id assume, apply cloth physics to a mesh that is attached/grouped to the main mesh. I've never heard of or seen people adding a rig to clothing to control the dynamics of the cloth
>>
>>919338
Yes you want cloth physics for the game not bones that would otherwise confuse the game engine. I don't know what engine you are using but say if it was unity the bones in unity would go through lag, uneven look during action events, bones colliding (the way i see this model being made it can cause unity to hit bones easy), etc.

The easy way to do this is by remaking the model to fit the clothing (don't let it slip), have certain parts become armor-like state, you dont need everything moving you just need the ones that need to move to move. So somewhere in the chest will become armor-like (unless you don't include the boobs), belly part moves around much so plan how you want this to happen and the arms will become the most annoying part.

hope it helps

Can you use maya costume rigs on motionbuilder or Just human ik?

I've been battling with this on and off for the past few days and I am not getting any closer to my goal.
I have 2 rigs and I want to move rig 1's animation over to rig 2. Problem is, rig 2 not only has more bones than rig 1, but the bone hierarchy is different too. I know how to change the hierarchy and reassign parents/etc, but that breaks rig 1's animation. Is there any way to salvage this?
>>
>>919309
Other than eyeballing which anim on which bones should be copypasted where and doing them one by one, no, there isnt any way to copy anim en-masse from two different rigs. You can only blame your short foresight for this.
>>
>>919309
>I have 2 rigs and I want to move rig 1's animation over to rig 2. Problem is, rig 2 not only has more bones than rig 1, but the bone hierarchy is different too
Sorry man, shit's FUBAR, you're gonna have to remake those animations for your new rig.
Unless, maybe you can look into Unreal's animation retargeting system, I heard you can have two different rigs play the same animation more or less. However I haven't looked into it personally, you're gonna have to do some digging yourself.
Theortetically, it sounds like you can:
1) put both your rigs in Unreal
2) do the retargeting in Unreal
3) export the animations back out again
Or maybe you can even retarget those animations in Blender. Dunno, just look up "how to retarget animations for different rigs" or something. Good luck
>>
>>919313
Not my rigs. Just want to port an animation to a game.
>>919322
I'll definitely give that one a shot and see what's possible with Unreal's retargeting system. Thanks a lot for telling me about that one, since I had no idea that existed. It seems Blender may have a similar feature, just googling "blender retarget animation", I'll see what works. Cheers!

Anon, have you ever heard of retargeting?
A few minutes fiddling with the rokoko addon should do exactly what you want despite the different hierarchy if the rest poses are close enough. May need a corrective NLA strip/animation layer afterwards if the rotations get misread but still do the job exactly how you need it to be done.
