SplinePush Modifier

A new maxscript modifier created to challenge myself.
Based on this tutorial in Softimage ICE : vimeo.com/groups/ice/videos/67972710

Create a push deformation along splines, with a lot of controls, and a Curve control to adjust the profile.
You also can offset the deformation, and subdivide the deformation along the spline path.
You can animate everything, even the Curve control, with different animations on each spline.

When you play the animation with the modifier opened, you can see the Curve Control animated too.
If there are keyframes on the CurveControl, it's orange, when you are on a keyframe time, the curve is red.
If there is no keyframes the curve is green.

The math part was really easy to recreate.
The tricky part was to deal with the Curve Control UI to be able to save and reload multiple curves with animation.
It's absolutely not made for it, which is weird, because all the others UI controls can easily be saved.
But I found a kind of hack to get it work.


 

Offset Modifier

A new modifier for 3dsmax.

it's a bit like a ripple modifier, but directly controlled by an animated point. So you can animate it as you want, keyframed, with a noise controller for exemple or a spring controller to add dynamics.
You can add multiple points and have different parameters on each of them.
Nice to create controlled ripple animations, flesh deformations...etc

 

 

Retopo Wrapper Surface Tool

 

I just created a new option, which allows to draw curves on your mesh to generate the polygons following the curves.
You can change the subdivisions , and also start from an edge selection to continue your topology.

Now the most part of these tools are already projected on the surface, you don't need to activate the Wrap Button for the tools I built, only for the classic editable poly options. 
Maybe some new options soon if I find enough free time.

 

 

Retopo Wrapper

 

 

 

This is a quick attempt to make my own retopology tool set.
I've done it this weekend, no plugin, not using the 3dsmax ribbon, only pure maxscript.

You can use all the editable poly tools and shortcuts that you know, it 'll project the selected sub-element (vertex, edge, face) on the closest surface.

 


Snow GUN Painter

A new tool for the SnowGun Toolset.

You can use BlobMesh or Frost option if you have it.
The tool is more interesting and powerfull with Frost but it still works very well with the BlobMesh option.
To create Snow exactly where you want, but it could be use for many different things.

You directly paint geometry on Selected objects.
press Ctrl to add geometry to itself
press Alt to delete geometry
press Shift to draw branches
the others controls are on the BlobMesh or Frost options.

You can create multiple "Blobs" with different meshing options, and pick them when you want to continue working on it, you can bake it in poly when finished.

 

Snow GUN Realtime

A quick adaptation of SNOWGUN but... in REALTIME !!!

Only the crunch borders is not realtime and is created in one click button with fiew options.

You can snow all your scene in one time.
Or for different reasons snow your scene by object or by group of objects with different parameters.

You can change each option on the fly, and if you don't collapse the mesh you can animate all the options.


 

Snow GUN

Snow projection with projection direction


 

Snow GUN MAP

A realtime collision map generator
Creates a collision map on the Uv coordinates of the ground mesh
The collider have to be an edit mesh
You can choose or create your own brush alpha maps
You can bake it as a jpeg sequence for displacement for exemple.

Collision Tesselate

Only works on Edit mesh

 

 

Snow Gun Deform

Copy the Script in Maxscript Startup Folder.

Steps : 

0: the coordinates of the Ground object have to be on 0 0 0

1: clic on get normals

2: pick the colliders you want

3: move the time slider to deform

4: Before baking, choose the start and the end frame

5: click on bake animation, it'll copy the mesh and bake the animation on the new one. Or you also can use a point cache to bake the deformation.

 

 

Wall Builder

A new tool quickly made on my spare time for walls creation.

special options : offset to put different walls together ; you can create a wall following a spline ; random fonctions to randomise bricks ; random colors in a multisubobject.

you can keep all the bricks separate (for exemple to simulate physics destructions) or collapse your wall in one mesh.
You also can use boolean to create holes or windows.

Over Morpher V2

Other Tests with the over morpher.
Updates :
- random morphs
- random on selection to easily create crowds
- Point cache Autowalk : animation based on travel distance, and auto rotation following trajectory.

Tests with another script still in developpement : Mini Crowd.

 

 

Over Morpher

A new tool, written this afternoon to solve a problem
I need to populate a scene with many characters.

So, I model a simple character, rig it with biped, load some mocap animations and export point cache animations.
With this method I can load in my scene many characters with different animations without any rig.
But I ask myself after if it's possible to deform each character to add variations, and having different morphologies.
And I don't want to generate too many point cache files (a walk animation fat, slim, big head...)
The solution is to deform the mesh on top of the Point cache modifier.
I try with a morpher, but it collapse animation, you can do it with an edit poly on top of The pointcache, or a mesh_select with a push, an ffd...etc
but you have to modify it by hand for each character, and to be fast I want some presets.

So I write a maxscript plugin to do something like the morpher but with an additive method, and it keep the animation under it.

Maxscript Modifiers VS Softimage ICE



 

I'm still learning softimage and I wondered if I could easily translate my MAXScript tools on Softimage.

Tests on point push and a muscle deformer.

Result: It is much easier on ICE. we have access to more information. For example In maxscript, it is impossible to get the vertex normal in real time without lag. In Softimage is simple. Raycast is also faster.
Overall ICE is really much more simple and fast . logic programing and the "code" is the same but it is better integrated.

Anim Transfert

 

To continue the serie of tools for motion graphics,
I wrote two new scripts that allows to transfer the animation of an object on others with offset.
You can do it in realtime using AnimTransfert-Realtime and bake it in keyframe, or directly using keyframe with AnimTransfert-Keyframe.
AnimTransfert-Keyframe also contains tools for managing your keyframes, move them, shift them, reverse ... 
very useful for moving the keys on hundred objects.

DemoScene

 

A new test using my Script Anim Transfert.
With random animation on reference Object.
Noise position, rotation or scale.

 

 

 

Radius Influence

 

A new maxscript tool inspired by C4D tools :

http://vimeo.com/35145361

http://vimeo.com/33174546

A Sphere Gizmo control position, rotation, scale and visibility of selected objects, you only have to choose the axis you want to animate.

Update : 
I find the way to enhance this script by key baking the objects, so now, no limitations in the number of objects.
You have to select the objects you want to bake and run another script.
It will place old objects in a layer named "OLD" and copy them with their animation but in keyframe.

Demo Scene

 

Rotation influence Tools :

Free Tools : Detach_Faces , Bake_Objects , Reset_Objects

Bake_Objects : 
You can now bake objects animation in Keyframe.
Do not bake too many objects at the same time.
It copy objects and their animation, but in keyframe, and place the old objects in a layer named "OLD", you can delete them if you want. And delete the sphere if all influenced objects are deleted.

Reset_Objects : 
If you try to delete the sphere gizmo you will have multiple errors, so, to delink the objects of sphere influence, you select them and run the script.

 

 

Rotation Spring

 

A Comparison between my 3 new tools :

Tentacle creator, Rotation Spring and Rotation-Tentacle-Spring.

The first is a procedural animation tool for tentacle motion.

The second is like a spring, but on rotations. You can apply it on a bone Chain.

It creates delay rotations following translations and rotations of the master or its parent. 

the third is a combination of these two tools : A spring delay rotation added to a Tentacle motion.

 

 

 

Tentacle Creator

 

A Maxscript to create procedural tentacle animations on a bone chain.

You can control speed, amplitude, offset... on X, Y  and Z axis.

You can Also apply random values, and animate the properties.

Sticky Cluster

 

A new maxscript tool to add controllers to a mesh animated by morphers.

These controllers follow the mesh deformations, and you can skin your mesh with them.

You can add morphers after the creation of clusters, or at any time.

You can move, scale, rotate, these clusters to refine your deformations.

(Sorry the script is applied to an old model).

 

 

Grass Animator

 

It creates grass using existing grass model and ground geometry.

Face AutoRig

 

Voici un outil terminé récemment qui permet de réaliser sur n'importe quel visage un Rig Facial Automatique.

Il comporte aussi plusieurs outils très pratiques comme des fonction de Mirror de pose,

un manager de poses qui permet de sauvegarder et reloader des expressions faciales.

Bientôt une fonction de sauvegarde d'animation.

J'ai aussi mis en place une méthode de motion capture faciale, à base de tracking 2D,

et un nouveau script qui permet de transférer les clefs des points trackés sur mes controllers.

Alioscopy Previewer 


Ceci est un Maxscript que j'ai développé pour le Studio Big Company à Lyon.

Il fonctionne en accord avec la technologie d'écrans refief sans lunettes d'Alioscopy

Il permet de créer une prévisualisation des 8 caméras nécessaires à l'Alioscopy.

A la frame courante ou sur la durée choisie.

Il créé les dossiers et sous-dossiers requis par le Player d'Alioscopy et y range les images de prévisualisation.

Il génère les images au format requis par Alioscopy.

 

Cela évite d'avoir à lancer et paramétrer à la main les previews pour les 8 caméras et leurs

dossiers de destination.
