View Full Version : Question about using Motion Designer on top of .MDD files

12-23-2003, 07:16 AM

I have a character with his motions baked into a .MDD file (animated from Messiah, not that it should matter), and I want to do something simple as adding a shirt. The shirt would be animated with Motion Designer, using the character as a collision object.

I am having trouble getting both items to work together. If I have Motion Designer active in the shirt model, adding MD_Plug to the character puts it in collision mode, and I can no longer use it to select the .MDD file. Is there a specific order to follow to get all of this to work together? Thanks!

I tried to delete this post, but it wouldn't let me..

I think I have it working now. It was a matter of adding two MD_Plugs.. Adding the .MDD first, adding Motion Designer to the shirt, then adding a second MDD_Plug to the character and activating it within MD_Controller.

Uhh.. Thanks! And Happy Holidays.
