PostPosted 17.05.2012, 22:07 
Hey everyone,
can someone explain how to set up an arms rig for weapon rigging and animating? For example out of this: viewtopic.php?f=310&t=85665

first you'll need some bones. After that comes your mesh.
Skin the bones to the mesh and youre done.

Then use the documentation on Confluence and learn it ;-)

I think the question wasn´t clearly. I don´t want to make arms, I want to "convert" Olli´s into a fp weapon rig for animating and and rigging.

The same procedure applies, you can just skip the part where you model the arms. ;) If you have no experience on rigging and animating, go through some general 3ds Max tutorials (or whatever you're using) that cover the subject, then read through the Cryengine documentation in order to rig your arms compatible with CE3.

A source for 3DS Max, Maya Tutorials : http://www.youtube.com/

Hopefully we'll get a good rigging video tutorial up here at CryDev soon, but i'm sorry to say that rigging a character is a bit beyond my skills :/

my arms are already ready for weapon animating.. just pop your weapon in the scene and start animating.

But there are no Dummys and the rig should be the other way around.
