    They do not. I use "Mantis Online" (free, google it, not the asset store) to do it, which produces pretty good results, and keeps the blend shapes intact.

    Houdini, I hear, is the best way to do LODs. Though I haven't tried it myself.

    Ultimately I stopped providing LODs because i realized that each project would be unique, so the exactly amount of reduction would really depend on the project. Providing LODs only limited some users who had never done anything likethat before, as they were still stuck using my LODs instead of whatever worked best for their project.

    Ok thanks. I was able to reduce the tri count of the fully clothed male to about 27k and still have it look fairly high detailed. 27k isn't cheap compared to models I've looked into with UMA (10k-15k), but then again the quality of this is higher so that's probably about where it should be.

    So I've been out of Unity land for a while due to my day job, but now that I've got some free time again I was curious if you were ever able to create this step by step tutorial.

    The golems look sweet too. I bet with some particle witchcraft, there can be some fun stuff done to turn them element based like fire, ice, sand etc.

    This is my latest video for mesh morphing.



    No written thing yet.

    Hey, been eye-balling this asset for awhile. (Actually all your work is a level far beyond)
    Programmer here, so just stepping into the modelling arena.

    I'm wondering if these characters (as well as your other assets) would work with the UMA pipeline?
    I've been watching your weapon videos and it looks like you bake out the model once you're finished customizing.

    Is that the case here? Can I, in theory, edit your textures, morph and bake out the mesh, then import it into the UMA system?
    (I'd like to be able to use UMA's facial animation system)

    I'm probably reaching here, but that would be fairly awesome.

    From what I understand, to work with the UMA system, more work would be required -- these do not work by default.

    For skinned mesh renderers, you can't bake the final result, as that would keep them from moving, turning them into a statue. (It is, however, a great way to make posed statues!)

    Though, the blend shapes generally shouldn't affect the speed of the game if left un touched.

    Arg, I'm too curious to see if I can get them working.
    Oh well, at least I'll have dragons if I can't get it to work (though I'm pretty determined)

    If I get it working I'll let you guys know how I did it.

    It's not too difficult. SecretAnorak has a simple race creation video series,

    He's working on a much more in depth one, but it'll probably be awhile before that comes out. You can PM me and/or join the UMA slack channel, (PM me with your email for an invite) and I can help you through all the steps. Setting up the DNA to use the blendshapes is probably the most work in the whole process.

    If your goal is to be able to use the UMA expressions system, then that is bone based, not blendshape based. Certain bones will be required to have the same expressions. If you wanted that, then that'd be somewhat hard (reskinning parts of the face)

    Okay, so after some time and with the help of Kenamis (we had a Unity bug crashing our OS, he helped a lot), he seems to be right, there is no facial rig with this model.

    Is there any chance you'd create one? I'm unsure of your plans because you have bones for hair so wasn't sure if this was a planned feature or not.

    I'm in the process of hooking up the blend shapes, and with a facial rig this would honestly be the best looking and customizable avatar on the store - in my opinion.

    If the answer is no, I'll still see if I can stumble along and hook one up myself. I'll email you all my work after I'm done so other people can take advantage of this asset and UMA (as the conversion requires going into 3ds)

    I think we can probably add this shortly. Right now the animator is working on the "Young Dragons", which have a similar shape as the "Dragons Pack PBR", so they'll get very similar animations. In the process, she's updating the dragon to have more facial animations. We'll be doing the Elves pack PBR after that, which has a lot of similarities, of course, with the humans. So that'd be a great time to add face animations, since I'd like that for the elves as well.

    Looks very cool :) I'm kinda curious though, if you ran into/managed to solve the problem of Unity not re-calculating the normals of the skinned mesh after it has been deformed by applying blendshapes? In all my attempts, the normals stays fixed and unchanged if the mesh import settings are set to "import normals", while if they're set to "calculate normals" (which would recalculate the normals after applying blendshapes) the skinned mesh gets black artifacts all over, especially in areas with tiny details (like around eyes, nose, mouth, fingernails, etc).

    I haven't had any issues around this I think -- I'm really not familiar with the differences in the options.

    Basically because the normals seem to be calculated based on the original mesh before any blendshapes are applied, detail shadows are also based on this mesh shape, and not on the particular blendshapes applied. So a large nose and a small nose might be shaded the same way, even if one has a nose bridge curving inwards and one has a nose bridge curving outwards. Or the shadow under a large belly will be the same as the shadow under a small belly. Or shadow in wrinkles on the face same as if there are no wrinkles.

    Does it cause problems on the model? I'd have to learn more about it, to know how to fix it.

    Hey, sounds good.

    Out of curiosity, are you planning on a bone rig or just blendshapes?

    By the way, not sure if you check pm's but I sent you one regarding the UMA integration.

    Hey! Hmmm I think most of the facial animations have been blendshapes. However... are there pros and cons I should consider? I don't know what Katy the animator would do, of course, but if one is better than another, or some mix of the two, then we can probably do it that way.

    I did see your message, I just haven't had time to do anything with it, so it's still sitting as unread in my inbox :)

    I haven't tried with yours, to be honest, but here is a sample from another character model. First image is the character's face with all blendshapes set to 0. Observe the shadows along the cheeks, and down the chin. Second image has a bunch of blendshapes set to "blow up" the face, to make it rounder, but it still has the same shadows as the original.

    EDIT: Third image shows what the mesh looks like when import settings for normals are set to "recalculate". It "fixes" the shadow issue on the cheeks (and everywhere else), but has a bunch of other problems that make it unusable.

    I'd like to be able to make the characters squint, have angry and sad emotions, etc.

    A bone based facial rig is more flexible for me personally since it will integrate better with UMA, but other than that it's also more performent than a blendshape based one. I think blendshapes at runtime require more draw calls whereas bones don't.

    Not going to lie about it though, you do have a few phonemes already, yeah - so asking you for a bone rig would be asking you to redo those as bones. (I think it's only about 4-5 though, not a lot)

    I haven't seen that issue w/ my stuff, so maybe it doesn't happen.

    We'll see what we come up with! :)

    I have started suspecting it's an issue with how
    Blender imports (or exports) meshes. It might not be happening to meshes exported from 3ds max (that have not already been exported from Blender).

    If you plan to rework the humans face rig, and you're working on the elves, I'd like to make a minor request:
    Could you please ask your 3d artist to bake out a thickness map and throw it in with the other textures?
    It's a basic map that bakes out the same way an AO map does, and it would allow us to use the models with any of the subsurface scattering packages in the Unity store.
    Your models would look amazing with decent subsurface scattering, and this would be a great time, while your artist has the models open already.
    Also... A thickness map for the dragons would make me giddy. Subsurface on the wings would add a whole new level of awesome to them...

    Here's the map we'd need: https://support.allegorithmic.com/documentation/display/SPDOC/Thickness

    Yes -- everything should work perfectly in 5.5.x :)

    Do you have substance painter? If so, the painter files should allow you to bake one out?

    Substance Painter is expensive. Only rich people, professionals, students, and pirates own it.
    I'm mostly just a programmer. I tried to figure it out in Blender once, and my brain is still recovering...

    I can tempt you though. Here is a cheap trick using the AO map, which has a ton of incorrect areas on the torso, but hits the wings correctly.
    Imagine the screenshots you could take for your projects... The wonderful things you could do...

    You want to do this. You just don't know it yet. :p

    You just need to do everything you want with it within the 30 day trial :)

    Try this file: http://infinitypbr.com/files/Thick.zip

    The female body one isn't right though, and unfortunately I don't have the hi poly models, so I can't bake it out from that. This is the bake that Substance Painter gave me. Also unfortunately, the modeler who made these hasn't replied to emails in over a year.

    Thank you!
    I can probably rework a copy of the male to fit the female. It's mostly the face and arms/hands that people tend to notice anyway.
    It feels like X-Mas. :)

    Hi, it is me again.

    How can I make a woman with a dragon just like the picture above?

    What I found in the package is headless...

    The Human package has a set of animations in the "Animations" folder called "Human_DragonRider". Those animations will match the dragon.

    The dragon package on my site also has a download with animations files that *should* work with any other humanoid, but I haven't tested them on all the other humanoids.

    Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 8.52.51 PM.png

    I haven't had time to play with it myself, but I"ve heard assets like Final IK and Horse Animset Pro should help with realism and what not, though the human animations are designed specifically to match the dragon animations.

    Hi. I can't find the human mesh morphing prefabs in my project. I downloaded the HumanFantasyPackPBR.unitypackage from your website and after importing I noticed my folder structure is different than what's in the video. Is the package on your website old? It says it was last updated in January. Thanks.

    It should be under "SFB Human Fantasy Pack PBR". Just in case the file didn't get uploaded, I'm uploading it again now, a new export, but the one i imported into a new project to get the screenshot was dated 12/21/17.

    I wonder though -- was there a previous version of the package already in the project? If so, perhaps some of the .meta files kept the main folder from being overwritten?
