crowd FBX to crowd w/ blend shapes
diogo.mar posted a topic in General Houdini QuestionsHey everyone, I've made a crowd simulation, and for that I inputed an FBX (from C4D) with bones and skin to the Agent node and added many animation clips. I wanted to make my chars open their mouth like you'd usually do with a blend shapes node, but the rig is not accessible in Houdini and there's no nodes for skin and bones (if there were I could just add blend shapes to geo) Do you guys have any idea how I could add those facial expressions without going back to C4D and having to add more bones and re-skin the base rig/model? Thank you.

After adding the advanced face module, have placed all the guides, there is no option for the tongue “Pic02”. Then the tongue controllers have got generated in the wrong positions “Pic03” and while rotating the jaw, the tongue gets bending “Pic04”.

How Do I Trace Errors In Facial Autorig?
Banshee posted a topic in Animation & RiggingHello everyone, I am trying to apply facial autorig on a head geometry, but I can't generate a character mask after fitting the polygonal cage on the face. I get this same error on my Houdini console every time I click on the "generate character mask" button: Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/PROGRA~1/Side Effects Software/Houdini 17.0.459/houdini/python2.7libs\autorigs\modules\advancedFace\advancedFaceGuideOptions.py", line 292, in onGenerateCharacterClicked self.model.generateCharacter() File "C:/PROGRA~1/Side Effects Software/Houdini 17.0.459/houdini/python2.7libs\autorigs\modules\advancedFace\advancedFaceGuideModel.py", line 120, in generateCharacter fxn() File "C:/PROGRA~1/Side Effects Software/Houdini 17.0.459/houdini/python2.7libs\autorigs\modules\advancedFace\buildAdvancedFaceGuide.py", line 156, in generateCharacter self.characterguides.generateCharacter() File "C:/PROGRA~1/Side Effects Software/Houdini 17.0.459/houdini/python2.7libs\autorigs\modules\advancedFace\character\buildCharacterGuide.py", line 122, in generateCharacter self.bakeCage() File "C:/PROGRA~1/Side Effects Software/Houdini 17.0.459/houdini/python2.7libs\autorigs\modules\advancedFace\character\buildCharacterGuide.py", line 173, in bakeCage idx = bs_idxmap.get(edit.name()) AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'name' By the way, this is what my polycage looks like, just in case there anyone notices something I'm missing:
FacialRigging and mix blendshapes
Pink posted a topic in Animation & RiggingHi everyone, I'm usualy a maya user and I'm starting to use Houdini at a personal level for the moment. My goal is to try to do a complete character facial Rigg and I'm gonna need some help I think. I usualy do a combination bones/skinning and blendshapes. I'm wondering how to mix different shapes and apply a corrective blendshape on a combination of 2, 3, 4 blendshapes for example. I saw how to connect basic blendshapes, the problem is how to call a third blendshape when you activate two shapes ? And is there a tool that enables you to sculpt a mix and extract the corrective blendshapes? Do I have to do this manually but substracting the shapes on my mix to get the corrective shape and make an expression that activate blendshape C(corrective) when mixing blendshape A and B ? The way I use to do that was by using a plugin call BCS for maya. It enables you to easily split and mix several blendshape and that what I'm looking for in Houdini. It may not be the right philosophy to try to do this way so If anyone have some experiences in this area or some advice that would be very much appreciated. Have a great day and hope to get some feedback. $ Cheers,
