Description

Imagine doing 110+ hours of rigging and skinning in 30 minutes. With the new Smart Skinner from BZP Pro, this is a reality. Created by authorized AutoDesk developers – led by Brent Zorich, formerly of Lucas and EA – Smart Skinner changes the way organizations approach development and scheduling.Contact us today for a trial. and to learn how BZP products can save your team thousands of man-hours and millions in long-term resources.


Features

Save hundreds of hours. Redefine your schedule and budget process.

BZP Pro SmartSkinner Professional combines all the tools you’ll need to rig, skin and deliver characters in 1/100th the time it usually takes.

The SmartSkinner plug in combines rigging and skinning into one tool, saving you hundreds of hours of time across your projects. With “bi-ped” and “quadra-ped” modes, animations have the flexibility to reduce production times on nearly any charactrers. Joint selection is managed by a pre-set list of joints that will bind the mesh.  Additionally, the sphere will be constantly recreated throughout the skeleton and interactively select the proper vertices on the mesh and bind them to the respective joint. To visualize the vertices, the tool iterates though every vertex and tests it if collides with the nurb spheres.  If it collides, it is selected. Our mirror process also copies the weighting from one side of the mesh to the next.

AutoRig additional features.

Smart Skinner’s Auto-rig module supplements time saves,  with a key frame control rig that is both forward kinematic and  inverse kinematic, as well as design construction of the deformation portion of the rig. The software creates shoulders and hips are entirely unbreakable due to the control setup- making this also a technical animation rig. Wether you’re creating characters for games or film, SmartSkinner’s  joint-based muscle flexing and auto-generated “facial GUI” is ideal. And when you’re done, separate skeletal chains enable easy exporting.

“Leaf joints” set up to have total control over rotational value due to additional controls making the wrist, shin, up­per arm, and upper leg unbreakable; and enables the entire rig (including spine, neck and limbs) to be moved or stretched  into virtually any position. 




SmartSkinner Key Features

  • Fully responsive so your content will always look good on any screen size
  • Combines rigging and skinning into one tool
  • 110 hours of work condensed into one hour
  • The script is launched in biped or quad mode
  • Selection of the joints is set by a pre-set list of joints that to which the tool will bind the mesh.  A skinbinder is used to do the binding which is typical for smooth binding.
  • The sphere will be constantly recreated throughout the skeleton and interactively select the proper vertices on the mesh and bind them to the respective joint.
  • Mirror will copy the weighting from one side of the mesh to the next.
  • To visualize the vertices, the tool iterates though every vertex and tests it if collides with the nurb spheres.  If it collides, it is selected.


Auto-rig Key Features

  • Key frame control rig that is both forward kinematic and  inverse kinematic
  • Over 7000 commands are completed in thirty seconds
  • Design construction of the deformation portion of the rig
  • The shoulders and hips are entirely unbreakable due to the control setup- making this also a technical animation rig
  •  Joint-based muscle flexing ideal for games and film
  • Separate skeletal chains that enables easy exporting 
  • Facial GUI that is automatically generated
  • The rig is entirely scalable for different scenes in a film or game
  • “Leaf joints” set up to have total control over rotational value due to additional controls making the wrist, shin, up­per arm, and upper leg unbreakable
  • The spine, neck, and limbs are able to be squashed and stretched
  • Individual Controls on the “leaf” joints of the limbs enable the rig to be moved in virtually any position and deformed in any way
