3dmaxhy can u help me again? Ive mixed biped and normal bones, after I baked(IK mode) the anims It looked good at first sight but when I played the animation I found that the animations for the normal bones didnt look right, I mean doesnt look like the original animations at all. Ive tried diferent things to try to fix this and I cant find a solution. So I was hoping you could help me. Hope you are still aroud

Im attaching the max file, its a very simple anim but if u bake it youll see what I mean.

Ive fixed the problem!! aparently the problem was that the limb I was trying to animate was a copy of one of the other limbs, and no it wasnt a clone, so when I deleted that copied limb and made a new one and then baked the anims, it worked as good as allways :)
It wasnt that evident uh?.
Well thankz anyway 3dmaxhy.

This might be a silly question as I my brain is not in its best condition right now, but does this work for biped as well?

I get an application error which forces me to close 3dsmax every time I try to preview the animations, with the Warcraft3 preview thing that comes with the art tools, any help?

u cant preview animations made using biped(Im guessing its the same with maxbones with IK) directly, u need to bake them first using 3dmaxhy´s script(inside this thread), after the anims r baked a clone of the biped bones is created, then u need to attach the mesh of ur model to those cloned bones.

yup, that my scene, I also baked it in something like 10 minutes too and exactly like that, BUT plz overlap the baked bones over the original model and you will see that now the faster animations(like attacks) are very more acurate than slower animations(like allmost all the stands) and the slower anims are sometimes very inacurate. Just move the baked skeleton over the original, play the animations and you will see what I mean.

EDit: Since the V1.5 worked better for slower animations and this v3 works better for fast anims, the best would be to do as I told you, but with a twist, let the user specify just the fast animations, scan them with 1 step to keep acuracy, but for the other anims just use the older system with 3 step wich works very well.
