描述

The vastSolver is an Autodesk® Maya® plugin that lets you convert any vertex animation into a skin weights and joints animation. The main use is to compress mesh animations, such as a blendshape-driven animation or a cloth/muscle simulation, for use in the game engines.

 

NEW - JOINTS ANIMATION ONLY (VERSION 2.0.1) 

 

Now you can use the existing joints skeleton and skinning weights and solve for joints animation only. A skeleton and weights do not have to be produced by vastSolver - it works for any joints hierarchy. 

 

The vastSolver comes with a compact GUI that lets you set basic parameters (such as a maximum number of joints) and two additional controls to fine-tune solving. Also, a Maya command is provided: there is a User Guide that contains command documentation.

 

On a technical note, the solver implements an iterative algorithm that searches for the best approximation of a vertex animation. The solver is robust to a non-uniform deformation (e.g. when a portion of the mesh does not have any deformation). The solver implements a custom solving strategy with the goal of the best results for fewer joints. For this purpose, it features Laplacian smooth skin weights regularization. The user can fine-tune parameters of Skin Regularization to get better results or to produce skin weights that resemble hand-painted weights.

 

By default, the solver solves for translations and rotations of joints. The user can choose to solve for joints scaling. This usually improves results.

 

The plugin comes with a User Guide and a test scene.
