Redistribution Utilities User Manual
The redistribution license comes with command-line tools (for Windows) that can be used to automate your character creation pipeline. All command-line utilities can be invoked with no arguments to get help info.
Add morph targets into a .TRI file. Useful for automating the addition of many morphs into a .TRI file before integrating with Customizer. Supports both 'diff' morphs and 'stat' morphs. Examples:
Command-line version of customer’s Geometry Integration step. You must manually create a Customizer project and complete the setup stage before using this tool. You can then automate the creation of shape statistics files (.EGM files) for your accessory models such as hairstyles, facial hair and glasses. The ‘-merge’ option allows you to automatically merge multi-material and multi-group OBJ files. Example:
Apply a face to a model part:
Example: Applying a face to a head mesh ('hs' stands for Head SAM):
Example: Applying a face to a hairstyle mesh ('hs' stands for Hair SAM):
Can be useful if you're using morphs to represent additional face shape information, such as fantasy race mix-ins, or if you need to convert a set of morphs via separate files.
Example: Apply the 0'th diff morph to full value:
Composite an alpha-mapped image over another one.
Example: Composite an alpha-mapped beard texture over a head texture:
After creating your mesh in our TRI format, you'll want to convert it to a format you can read.
FileConvert will read TRI, VRML, OBJ and 3DS, and will write to TRI, VRML1, VRML2, OBJ, 3DS, LWO, MA and XSI.
Example: Convert the TRI we created above to 'morphedHead.obj':
Useful for generating an image of your mesh's UV map to check the layout. Example:
