The Animation Re-Targeter (Pro_to_BND ) is a huge part of the Red9 ProPack pipelines and workflows. Designed over the last 5 years to offer clients the ability to remap, on mass, any animation library to a fresh rig and bounce that data over to various formats.
If you’re working with us all our Red9 PuppetRigs come with the base BND binder file, if not you can still create these manually within the toolsets, although many of the complex options are only available directly to the Red9 PuppetRig.
We go through the various options within the remapper itself, both HIK based and pure skeleton based. These allow you to control how the fbx data is applied to the binder skeleton. If your FBXs don’t have a HIK definition don’t worry, there’s a tool for that also.
We also go through the various output formats, r9Anim, Maya File or custom Playblast. The Playblaster also exposes custom camera tracking, allowing mass drops of FBX animations to be quickly converted to movies, with tracked cameras for easy review, the camera focusing in on the renderMesh wires within the MetaRig..
We also showcase some of the new extreme mapping added to the systems, including the new Spine re-fit solver, giving far more consistent data, perfect if you’re moving data between MoBu and Maya consistently. This is the absolute backbone of a modern pipeline, giving you the ability to simply reuse animation data from any source in your project.
