Hello guys I have a little issue with a character model in maya.I have MAYA 2018 version with CRYENGINE 5.5 version. I want to make a army solider and I guess it needs skeleton to rig.In my case I think it is not sufficient maya skeleton for cryengine. I noticed that cryengine needs a skeleton called "skeleton_male_generic.char" and how can I make it in maya?No tutorials found for that.All tutorials are made to cry 3. Anyone has good tutorial please push me to there. Help me please for making a custom character and export it to cryengine. I can build 3d model and rig using maya humanIK option. Hope helps!!! :idea:

Hi I have successfully created a custom character for cryengine 5.5.But I have a little issue with exporting it from MAYA 2018.My custom character works fine in the cryengine level and sometime change its some vertices to a bad shape(Actually I don't know how to explain it ) When I'm exporting character in Maya it pops some vertex errors but successfully export it.
This is my custom character

Please try out the suggestion in this archived post:
https://www.cryengine.com/community_arc ... 5&t=132275

Specifically the part where Collin states "You need to go into the weight painting tool and toggle post and interactive weighting".

Let us know if this works for you.

I would love to see how you did this. I've never been able to get characters working just right.
