Idea va tools v2 release

VA tools
_________________________________________________
This tool can help you export vertex animation from 3dsmax to Warcraft 3. This is useful for us to create an animated flag, mantle even a dynamic t-shirt quickly.Hoping that it's useful for you

Version History
  • Version 1.0: Added animation recond tool
  • Version 1.5: Added auto dynamic animation loop tool.it means that we will never worry about making a loop for dynamic animation.
  • Version 2.0 (beta): Reforms the solution of detaching face, an irregular shape is allowed. I have no time to test more scenes, sorry........if u find some problems report me...
  • Version 2.6.3:Added VA jointer.

Zoom (requires log in)

Examples

This mantle's dynamic effect was made by Va tools:
Zoom (requires log in)

this softbody's dynamic effect was made by Va tools2.0:
Zoom (requires log in)


Reference

---------Smart VA---------

animation group:
Different animation clips(wlak,dead,spell etc) should be marked with different animation group.

from time:
The first frame of animation should be baked.

to time:
The last frame of animation should be baked.

stat time:
The first frame of new animation which was created by Smart VA.

interim:
Cite a case:If we need the frame28 to frame45 for a loop.then set "from time" with 28,"to time" with (45-interim).We suppose interim=4,in that way there will be an interim between frame41 and frame45

step time:
The frames between 2 keys

detach time:
If the original model has no any distortion in some frame,that frame will be the detach time.It is useful for us to give a UV to last animation.Note that any animation groups must be have same detach time!

Select Model:
When all parameters above were already ok,then press this bunttom to select the original model.

preview:
Preview latest animation group in viewport which was created by Smart VA.


---------VA jointer---------

Combine Animation:
When u press the button,all old animation groups will be deleted and a new animation will be crated by linking the all old animation together.

Quick Select:
Select any animation group quickly.

i don't think anyone has it unfortunately. it's possible that either TDR, i guess he does check the site occasionally, or iNfraNe have the thing hidden on their computers. maybe... try a PM
