I am currently having a nightmare :(. I am hoping someone with a little more expertise can help me. I am very new to unreal, blender and all of this and I am trying to get morph targets from my character automatically onto my clothing items or make the clothing items automatically move with the character morphs. I have tried many many different ways and non of them are either good solutions or work at all lol. Unfortunately I do not have access to Maya so I am looking for a solution using Blender or the APEX SDK.
I been working on this problem for a very long time and I can’t seem to get past it. Basically most of the time I have been learning unreal. I can’t seem to progress and I am actually stuck.
With the APEX SDK I have found some very interesting results, one was where I imported the character with the hoodie on and loaded the .apx file onto the hoodie material and the character material, then I removed it from the character material and within the previewer, it automatically pushed the hoodie out as I morphed. When closing the previewer it doesn’t work in game lol. Its similar to the video below.
I have made a video showing one of the glitches I found, which does transfer the morph target. It basically transforms the character into the clothing item. Is there a way I can do this in blender or some other software? Transform my character mesh keeping the morph targets on the hoodie? I do imagine there is something that can do this somewhere? Just like I did within unreal… I tried lots and lots of things within blender and nothing will transform my character into the hoodie keeping the morph targets… Maybe taking a portion of the vertices from the character and transforming them into the hoodie? Yes I have tried shrink wrap and the results are terrible. Or maybe even just transfer the morph target to the clothing item. Another possible method which I can’t seem to do, is create templates to snap my clothing to so I can turn that into a shape key within blender?
I can’t believe its sooo difficult :(.
Here is the video I recorded of what I did, sorry about the mic quality I just used a Bluetooth headset I’m tired and my mic is broken
I really do hope someone can help me with this cause I am stuck and this is something I need to work :(.
Its so soul destroying when you can’t get past an issue.
