I’ve been chipping away at the character creation challenge. You may have seen on my blog that I found some interesting examples of assets which Antics seemed to have purchase outright, (as opposed to creating them in house). So I’m thinking that at least a portion of some of the characters probably were outsourced also. So I went in search of fully rigged 3ds Max characters and found bucket loads. Of course almost all were expensive. Some came in to max and exported quite well. Others required a bit more 3ds Max knowledge than I currently posses.
With the 3ds Max Antics exporter, it’s now a given that Max is the only way to get extra character content into Antics. (with the exception of rigid body solutions. like the skeleton and Mech examples). Ultimately I’d like to learn enough to build my own character’s, import them into max, skin and rig them and sort out the bodyweights (that’s so the mesh doesn’t get messed up when the joints move). But for the mo, I’m happy enough experimenting with importing someone elses bipeds and perhaps modding them slightly.
