im makin a unit soldier from scratch for arma 2 and i got it in game already textures are ok but wen i walk arroun i see so much deformation on my model, im asuming its cose of the weights and i have my model weighted in maya all i ned is a tutorial to import those weights into O2
right i understand what you mean now. I actually never tried that, so i am not sure what it takes to make it work.
AFAIK, the lads using maya to create 3d content are not that many in this community, so i doubt you'll get your answers.
Anyhow, would be good if you would post the error you got on trying to export the said weight script.
PS: THIS is something that would be needed, but i doubt it will ever become available for BIS games
Okay, let me get this straight... you asked for a tutorial on how to use the weight scripts, necessitating someone to take the time to answer if they knew... now you are that person, and you're not posting the answers? Could you please take the time to write out what you have found, and contribute to the community knowledge base so future people like you can just use the search function to find the answer?
first of all u got to build an eskeleton for the character u are working on whit exactly the same bone hierarchy as the BI skeleton an weight it
then export your mapt weights if u dont know hoW to do that in maya here is how u doit
in the animation menu Skin>Edit Smooth Skin> Export Skin Weights Map ... i chose JPEG for my ouput format here u get to chose the location of ur map weights .. make it easy to find... maya is goint generate a script file and lots of pics .. those are your weigts .
IMPORTAN u got to place the script in the same file folder the pics are.... maya puts them in saparate files just move the script into youre weighs file IF U DONT DO THAT THE SCRIPT IS NOT GOING TO WORK IN O2 ....thats it for MAYA
import ur character into O2 (mine is OBJ format) now impor ur MAYA weights script File>import>Maya Weight scrit... locate the script and import it ... if u did it rigth no errors show u got a fully weighted ARMA 2 character
