Collada and FBX Don't Support Rigging? July 30, 2015, 3:19 p.m.

Im exporting maya rigs into houdini without problem.
All the anim and skinning comes across fine.
The rig has to have just baked anim on the joints though.
It cant have any iks ect.

crowds- locomotion node July 28, 2015, 9:58 p.m.

Hey all,

When baking out an anim clip there is an option to specify the locomotion node to convert the anim to “inplace”. This correctly zeros out the anim.
I see in the docs that the locomotion anim gets saved.

My question is..
Does this saved locomotion (associated with a clip) automatically get used
by the crowd system when it retimes and blends the anim?
If so.. how does this fit in with setting the “inplace Gate Speed” ?

I've been struggling to understand how to correctly bends between clips that have varying locomotion speed across the length of a clip. Relying on the particles speed to purely control that locomotion (losing the original locomotion) seems to be inaccurate.

What am i missing?
Any help is much appreciated!
