Character Generator


#1

Hi, I’m new to the forum, but I have a question that needs answering. I’m working on a massive project which will involve the creation of thousands of characters and the historically accurate clothing they wear. What I’d like to do is have a database of character faces, clothing, and other accessories that I can add on to easily create these characters and rig them up for animation in Maya. Like creating a sim or a paper doll.

Autodesk Character Generator seems to do this, but they don’t offer the ability to upload art and accessories I’ve created in Maya to the database and they don’t have the selection I’m looking for. I don’t know if there are any other character generator apps that exist where I would be able to upload my accessories from Maya. If there is one, please sound off in the comments because it will save me a lot of time.

In the meantime, I’m now left to conclude that there isn’t software available to do what I want. Which means I have to create it. Does anyone know of any online tutorials or programs where this is possible? Please comment and help me. Thank you.
