Export from Motion Capture
show user profile  HG
Hi every one
I have bought an OptiTrack Motion capture and I have the software Motive for the set.
I captured my first motion. and export it as BVH file. it can be easily seen in Blender or Cinema 4D.
But when I tried to export it to 3ds max, it didn't work, and it say :
The following track names were found in the file and are unrecognized by Biped:
Spine, Spine1, LeftArm, LeftForeArm, RightArm, RightForeArm, LeftToBase, RightLeg, RightTOeBase.

But the other problem is that I can only export it in 3ds max as biped. but in another file I have a motion capture data from 2 Human, or one Human and some Rigidbody objects. that means, I don't want to export it at Biped at all, I need also the data from my rigidbody or other data...
what should I do ?

Afaik that's the only way to get "non biped" animation into max if FBX is your only route, Optitrack forums would be your best bet, doesn't sound like a Max issue.

edit : just remembered, I only messed with BVH a few years ago but remember needing something called a marker file to import truebones BVH.

Failing all else just rename the joints in your BVH prior to import, you can do this with free software or Motion Builder.
