AutoPosing

This feature predicts the pose that you want to make and sets it up for you automatically. The prediction is made based on the way you manipulate the controllers of a character.

For now, AutoPosing can only work with standard Cascadeur models. Custom models are not yet supported.

To enable AutoPosing:

1. Select an entire character (every point controller).

2. Click the Enable AutoPosing tool button on the Toolbar:

After this, a set of AutoPosing controllers will be generated.

The button should only be clicked once for one character. If you click the button again, the following error message will appear:

AutoPosing can work with several characters at the same time. If the scene includes a single character, AutoPosing is applied to it automatically. If there is more than one character in the scene, you’ll need to select point controllers of the character you’d like to use with AutoPosing.

AutoPosing Controllers

Once the tool is enabled, a number of controllers will appear on the character model.

Main Controllers Additional Controllers
 Bright green  Dark green (inactive)  Blue (Active)
 Used in pose generation  Not used in pose generation  Used in pose generation


All types of controllers can be used as follows:

    Selection
   x2  Selection with children
  Hold  + drag  Select all active controllers with the red frame
  R  Fixing / Unfixing
    Adjusting


Blue (additional) controllers are only set for the current keyframe. They do not carry over to different frames. Different sets of additional controllers can be defined for different frames.

Note 1: We recommend switching to the View Mode before using AutoPosing so that Point Controllers don't get in the way.

Note 2: You need to deactivate limb direction controllers before adjusting the pose with the Autoposing feature on.

Note 3: Once unfixed, the controllers will assume new positions based on AutoPosing simulation.
