New MakeShapes addon for Blender and UE4

Postby AssetDK » Sat Apr 18, 2020 2:49 pm

I made my very first addon for Blender, and naturally it is a little helper for UE4.

MakeShapes was based on MakeTarget2 and will import targets as shape keys, after that you can export all the shape keys as a faceshapes.mxa file, and MHX2 import will happily process this file and add the shape keys to your MHX2 imported characters (both base and proxy mesh).

Finally you can export this to FXB and all the the targets/shape keys will work in UE4 - and probably other game engines.

You can find further addon documentation in the wiki: http://www.makehumancommunity.org/wiki/Documentation:MHBlenderTools:_MakeShapes#Using_MakeShapes
and you can find the addon on GitHub: https://github.com/AssetDK/makeshapes

In the next version of this tool I will add attempt to turn all "expression builder" targets into shape keys. :P

I made the next version of the tool, so I can now make even more targets into shape keys. That is all of those on the "Expression blender" page.

However I also see a serious problem - and I need some tips! The shape keys are all working in Blender, but It looks like the eyes (mesh) is not following the shape keys, where as the brows and teeth are following along just fine. Running over the MHX2 import I do not see any specific code that should handle this, so I wonder if the eyes have a different setup, or if I somehow get them imported wrong? :?:
