Can some folks confirm or deny for me, Triggered UI doesn’t appear to be binding correctly to the viewport camera in the RoboBall rig. Visibility appears to be driven by the shortcut (Ctrl-Shift-T), but the group itself is just loose in the world and doesn’t link up to the camera. Tried a dump and restore of the C3DC prefs, but no luck. Maya 2018.5, Win 10.
Give me a bit I’ll check that for you Benjamin, I’m on 2018.5 Win 10 too.
One of the folks on the FB group pointed me correct. I’d forgotten that Ctrl-Alt-T is for constraining the Trigger UI to the camera. Ctrl-Shift-T is for toggling display. Not sure if the warning is expected, but that at least got it attached to the Cam.
Also, this message displays in the script editor:
# Warning: There Are No Objects Called: “*trig_allWindow_grp” In This Scene. #
Yeah hi Benjamin, the *trig_allWindow_grp should be in the scene if it’s set up correctly. It should be called something like “RBL:trig_allWindow_grp” under “RBL:rig”.
See the video below,
1. I’ve set the Maya project
2. Opened up the file
3. Then I use the shelf buttons for clarity, I’m fumbling around with them because I always use the hotkeys but they are the same, be sure to have the window in focus by middle-clicking on the viewport to focus it before the scripts run, they need to know the current camera. Follow this vid and let me know how you go.
More info on triggers is found in the Zanzi rig and Croc rig pages.
You can see how to build these UIs on the Zoo Biped Proxy page
I tried it but very very heavy. i don’t why.
Heavy, as in slow? This rig plays at 140fps on my machine in 2018 with no animation caching. Should work even without Zoo Tools installed too.
