Does anyone one know of a control system for * expressions based on
Maya's wire deformer? Rather than pulling points to create morph
targets and shifting shapes, I'm interested in creating a system of wire
deformers and programming movements in Maya's dope sheet. Thereby I will
be able to use my library of wire deforming poses on any model of any
character later down the road with minimal amount of tweaking.
I have had very good results using wire deformer to create my first pose
which is a basic smile. I thought it wise to see if anyone has done
such work before I go on with this mammoth task. I know the benefits
could be tremendous for the next characters, although the initial task
of creating a control system is no piece of cake.
If any one knows of such work it would be much appreciated.
