Havok 3ds max/Noesis importer/exporter plugins

Post by PredatorCZ » Thu Mar 21, 2019 11:18 pm

So, it was over year since I posted something relevant, it's time to show some evil horns.
Starting with this one.
Following plugin will let you import skeletons and few animation formats from all known Havok packfiles (hkx).
In addition, you can export your own skeletons and animations into Havok format.
Enjoy.

Supported animation formats:
  • hkaInterleavedUncompresedAnimation
  • hkaDeltaCompressedAnimation
  • hkaSplineCompressedAnimation
Here is source animation in 3ds max.

Here is animation exported into Havok format, inside Havok preview tool.

Here is Havok animation imported back to 3ds max.

Master page for 3ds max plugin.
Master page for Noesis plugin.

I will also require from you any and every feedback you can think of.
For plugin, you can create issues in repo.
For everything else here, or on blog.
Thank you.

HavokMax V1.1 has been released.

Fixed loading version 2016 files under 32bit build.
Fixed wrong class name links for XML exported files. :owned2:
Maxscript listener will now show whenever plugin tries to print any information and from now on, user will be always informed properly. User no longer needs to open listener manually.

this tools are very interesting but I would like to ask some questions. Is it possible that when I add a skeleton the skin of the model is preserved? I would like to use it for the models of the characters of the souls series. then is it possible to recover the animations done with the havok?

When importing skeleton, it always looks up for existing bones, but will always apply transformations/user props/parent links, etc.
Sometimes, it will mess up skin, however you can reset(refresh) skin pose(not weights) inside skin modifier.
What I always do, is I'll load Havok skeleton first, then model itself. Note this, that some tools/scripts will create their own bones, despite they are already loaded from skeleton file.
1st round of animation support comes this week or so, only for 3ds max.

Sekiro might use new version, 2017 - 2018? Mine supports only 2016 from the new ones so far.

then I wanted to ask something. in bloodborne there are many furry creatures and I am wondering if it is possible that there are also bones in the skeleton for hair. do you think this thing is possible?

I have BB files, never used them so far, but I have no idea how hair is made, I assume its treated as cloth, or real time ragdoll.
