Sample text

Planning the Production For this Quick Start, we’ll take a trip to the circus to see a character on the tightrope that really shouldn’t be there. But don’t worry, because the plan is not to have him stay around long. In this example, you’ll use the ragdoll feature in the MassFX system to automate the spectacular fall. This gives you a chance to set up a scene, create and position some primitive objects and lights, and work with the MassFX system to animate the untimely accident. 3 Quick Start: Falling from a Tightrope The first thing to consider is setting up the scene.

4. Double-click the biped’s pelvis to select the entire biped hierarchy, and then click the Create Dynamic Ragdoll button in the MassFX toolbar. 5. Click the Time Configuration button near the Play button at the lower-right corner of the interface, set the Start Time to 26, and click OK. 6. In the MassFX toolbar, click the Start Simulation button. Let the simulation run to frame 100. 7. Open the Simulation Tools panel in the MassFX Tools dialog box by clicking its button in the MassFX toolbar located as a flyout under the World Parameters button, and then click the Bake All button to add all the keys for the simulation to the Track Bar.

Select and rotate the upper arms in the Top viewport toward the balance pole about 15 degrees and then downward in the Front viewport about 15 degrees also. Then select and rotate the lower arm until the hands are over the balance pole in the Top viewport. 5. Finally, select and move the balance pole upward in the Left viewport until it is just under the hands. 3. 3 The balance pole surely makes the biped feel more comfortable. Adding a Camera and Light The modeling phase, which usually is quite time-consuming, went really quickly when we used the default primitives, and because we’re not adding materials, we can jump straight to the placement of a camera and lights.
