I'm trying to get started with retargeting Motion Capture files to custom character rigs in C4D. I've watched the tutorial from DigitalTutors (made by Delano Athias - great tutorial tho!) and have one question. The model is divided into segments and that is causing some troubles, becouse those segments aren't connected to each other (attachment 1 - "pic 1"). I have asked Delano Athias on twitter how to solve this, but as I am a begginer I do not clearly understand what he meant: " Ah, it's because character is segmented. You could combine each piece, then skin the model to remedy this. " In attachment 2 ("pic 2") there is the full model hierarchy, and those pieces are already skinned - that is why I do not get the idea of "skinning". ->
Delano A. also replied: "Hey again! This character was never skinned in the course. It's a proxy model. This link might help :) https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/19/881871" but it didin't really help.
If anybody knows what might be the trouble, please do leave a comment.
