Cleaning up optical data

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


So...It is a little too extensive to actually go into. However, depending on what version of motionbuilder you are using, (hopefully 7 or above) they really did a good job at making the help files more user friendly. Open up the help files and search for "optical data" anything that comes up with a 123 in green is a tutorial. I suggest that you read all of the documentation though. This should point you in the right direction to cleaning up motion data and they will explain it better than I might in this forum. I prefer other programs to motionbuilder for cleaning up and refining motion data but MB does a decent job and it is getting better. Diva, Evart, Calcium...all offer better tool sets for cleaning up motion data and they don't limit your marker count and Motion builder does; which can be daunting. Good luck.

Facial Blends Animation Pipeline Mobu to Maya

Hi, got some pretty dense mocap data on face blends. What to just export animation data itself, but can't seem to find the same process as with exporting pure animation from skeletons. First, I can't seem to change name space appropriately on the blends. Second, I can't see "select all" or equivalent. Have hunted hi and low - anyone know of a tut or trick to deal with this? I have compatible characters in both Maya and mobu, but find things get messed up if I export geos and textures with the animation.
