I am new to Ragdoll and still discovering its marvellous features
I am having an issue with the Live Mode:
The set up
I have set up my ragdoll (markers with mesh shape, rotation limits, no retargeting warning in the “Retargeting Editor”) on one of my “complicated” rigs (not a simple FK chain). Meaning I am loading the physics in a new scene with a fresh rig and constraining the controllers of this fresh rig to the joints of my loaded Ragdoll.
When I go into the “Live” mode I can start moving my Ragdoll around (using masks and IK selection tool) but at some point I loose some of the markers and eventually all the ragdoll disappears. This has also caused my Maya to fatal error several times.
One thing I spotted is that Maya seems to be lagging a bit just before the marker disappear (maybe this is not relevant )
What I tried so far:
- I doubled checked the markers hierarchy
- I tried the FK live selection tool, but this causes the mesh to disappear instantly and a Maya fatal error follows usually (but not always)
- I tried using the live mode on the original ragdoll that I created and the markers disappear as well (same issue)
- I tried to change substeps and iterations but that didn’t change the issue
I must be missing something (maybe very obvious), but I can’t figure out what…
Would anyone have encountered this issue before ?
I would love to be able to use the live mode with foreign rigs, but so far I am struggling a bit
Thank you for any help you can provide
