Hi all, thanks Thomas for your work and all for sharing experience.
Do somebody know what is the reason for the driven poses import to mess all the posing already imported? (it changes rotations/orientation of bones bending/twisting, some sort of re-location and most bones appeared locked…even if I go to another layer of bones, the poses are not correct…that I still cannot figure out the exact bug)
So, I am importing base models Gen8 Female&Male (with jsons) and afterwards for each of them Importing Action (I am aiming to import a timeline w/ keyframes from Daz(saved from Daz as scene or pose - i’ve tried both, so that’s why it’s Action, not Pose import)
Until I import the driven poses, everything seems to be working almost perfect. Models are posed correctly in Blender with very tiny differences. The only major issue noticed is that:
(there was a pic like this already posted here, of a man with messed legs, everything from torso below)
Strange thing is that, the tiny differences come only in some of the keyframes and some are just perfect! For example, a hand that has grabbed or is holding something, appears just perfect in some cases, as each finger bone was done in Daz, and is some cases, the hand is slightly moved from its location, so it does not appear to “hold” the object it was holding(created in Daz).
When the correctives are loaded, it resolves problems like edgy torso bending, or arms twisting, but it does not fix the problem stated above.
So, my option was to Import Driven poses, so I can change the minor issues manually afterwards. Still, when the import is done, it seems the ctrls for the bones that appear (the sliders from Daz) does not remember and recognise values for the poses from before and totally mess them, in a way I cannot still figure which bone exactly is the problem or whatsoever, cause the pose looks completely different.
The other way around, If I load the base models(with jsons) and first Import Driven Poses (before Action import) the ctrls are working fine - I can manipulate the bones with them in Blender. When the Action is imported, they do not change, the poses wanted are not loaded/imported.
Is there a way to make them both working together so I make just slight changes to the poses needed and not fully re-do each of them?
