Distribution of PSOFT CharacterBox Patch for MODO 10.2v2

We started the distribution of a patch for PSOFT CharacterBox to support MODO 10.2v2. It adds support for the changes in the MODO 10.2 TDSDK and includes minor bug fixes.

Modifications

[New Features]

  • Compatible with the changes in the MODO 10.2 TDSDK.

[Fixes]

  • Narrowed the area processed as the interior of a weight mesh when binding. Weights were being set to vertexes outside the weight mesh.
  • The weight map information is now maintained when using [Bake Motion] for the rig of a mesh where the standard MODO Bind was used.
  • Fixed the error when executing [Re-compute Offset] in MODO 10.2.
  • Fixed the error when adding an actor that doesn't have a tag to "CharacterBoxGroup".
  • Fixed the error with [Generate Weight Meshes] when Maxwell Render is installed.

[Important]

Due to technical issues, MODO 10.2v1 is not supported. Please use MODO 10.2v2.
