Crowds: transition from one agent to another

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

So im using two agents from the shelf: Mocap Biped 2 and Mocap Biped 3. But when I want to transition one clip from biped 2 to the clip from biped 3 weird things happen (image).

Does this mean that bipeds are different and you cannot transition clips between them? Maybe I should copy animations from one agent to another, but how can I do that?

Mocap Biped 2 has a completely different skeleton than Mocap Biped 3, so clips baked out from one cannot easily be used with the other

yeah i gave up with any off the shelf mocap bipeds and built my own in maya rigged and animated there then i just bring those in as clips for my agent setup.  That was one of my goals for using the crowd system anyway so i could integrate various rigged meshes from maya but its annoying that the mocap bipeds are different skels on the shelf.

It may/will be possible to retarget the anim from one biped to another in houdini then export that out but not sure how.
