Does the .BIP import into Maya correctly?

I still don't understand why you persist with biped. Anyway... I haven't heard of a successful import from max to maya regarding rigs. If that .Bip works (like Krause suggested) that'll be news to me.

My memory is fuzzy, but I THINK I imported a .BIP of MoCap data into Maya a year or so ago... Or I imported it into 3ds and exported that as an FBX... Can't recall.

I got a BVH mocap file to cleanup in Max. Biped works great as it has fk/ik.
so I wanted to use it to cleanup, then dump onto the maya character.
I can save an fbx, but I dont think I can upload its anim on the maya char ?!

I wouldn't this so either!

Maybe try parent constraining the controllers of the maya char to points that make sense in the moCap data (or just copy keys over manually and adjust appropriately which might be painful).

That's just how I would long hand it, but there probably is a better way. Let us know!

use human ik in maya and its pretty simple



when you set up human ik re targeting its in t-pose - you just need to make frame 1 of your imported skeleton t pose also
