just got demos of max and motion builder 2013 and that dosent work like in the video or im missing something

only seems to be one click operation if your cat rig is just the most basic rig

need to get this guy in motion builder so if anyone wants some work and knows how to get my bee character into motion builder so i can add some mocap data to him. give me a shout

At a guess you'll need to go through the remapping/retargetting process . there's a pretty decent tutorial supplied i think (was on 2009) . Mb is pretty cool one you get used to it but unless you've got a shed load of mocap or a huge library to utilise i don't see much benefit over using max/maya and fbx

im a bit fuzzy tbh as i haven't done much with CAT since before softimage bought them out

biped does a very good job of retargetting mocap

if there's a straightforward way of getting biped motion onto a CAT rig then you're sorted.

get it all back to the bind pose - put a point helper/dummy/bone/whatever above the face rig in the hierarchy and link it to the head. job done.


having that extra node in the chain will make it a lot easier to change stuff later, trust me
