Great video tutorial on MB

hey everyone, I found prolly the best MB tutorial video that shows the general pipeline for MB and maya. The MB part of it is really amazing and shows things like mocap data clean up. You can dl the tutorial for $25 or buy the cd for $75. I'll say it's really worth it. The link is


http://cheap-oem-software.org/index...esc&progid=4075

hopefully that will help some people

I made a quick video tutorial on the Maya to Motionbuilder and back workflow. Pretty basic for those people that are just getting familliar with Motionbuilder.

Download Maya to Motionbuilder and back (quicktime ~37Megs)

Any help would be great,

My tutorial above goes over that. But, in MB7. I'm not sure about 5.5

it is a pdf and can be found here : http://3d-caveman.com/English/Forum...opic.php?p=2727

if you have suggestions or questions feel free to ask
Hope this helps some people

greets


ps: hope to be able to propose a videotutorial someday soon

I'd love to watch this, but it doesn't seem to be working again. Hmm, looks like the whole site is down right now...

Unfortunately, the server IS down right now. I'm no longer working with FAU, so I'll have to drive over to get those files sometime soon and post them on my own server. I'll be sure to let everyone know when it's back up.

Hello- I was wondering if anyone knows of any tutorials related to MotionBuilder and importing and cleaning up c3d files. I've been able to connect an actor to the motioncapture data, but I'm running into errors (parts flying all over the place randomly, very choppy animation that looks like it's doubling the actor, ect.) and I suspect it might be related to me not knowing exactly what I'm doing.
Thanks if you can help!

Edit: Actually, I found a good tutorial on setting up a scene here
http://area.autodesk.com/learning/t...s/details/2512/
I still wouldn't mind one on cleaning up the data though
