C4D animation tools are quite good as long as you are animating
motion graphics or any other non bipedal
in animate object.(vehicles etc)
Not wishing for myself , as I have long ago built my CA pipeline with
Thus My hypothetical wish ,for those patient blokes who will maintain
their MSA’s, would be,at a minimum: ,
A human IK control rig to retarget motion to native C4D rigs
Like Maya and Iclone.
A motion clip system that can align the root of disparate sourced mocap
without having to bother with some bloody manual pivot object.
Like Iclone, motionbuilder, and the FREE Daz studio’s nonlinear
And with all due respect, buying an emulator from Insyduim to run the
old Character tools literally salvaged from a Deceased mans
“hackintosh” (Cactus Dan) , not a viable solution for many.
A dynamic cloth solver that works for clothing on Characters
Like Iclone Maya ,Daz studio , even the vestigial Poser.
Some manner of native facial mocap or audio based lipsync option that
DOES NOT require purchasing a $900 USD IPhone
( exceeding one years MSA cost),
Like Maya,Iclone ,Daz studio even the vestigial Poser.
With C4Ds’ Python API ,it would not be too hard to cobble a script to
parse The .dat files from the free open source Papagayo lipsynch utility
Even Daz studio has Papagayo as one of four different audio based
I know many will say: “it is better to handkey your lipsync anyway.
those audio lipsyncs are all horrible”
Indeed solutions Like Faceware would be ideal
However 3 “good seconds” of hand keyed lipsync animation per
week ,for one man operations with impatient clients ,is not viable,
Thus an automated solution ,as a foundation upon which to build, is a
must in Mid 2019.
