Regency Man Rigged and Animated for Lightwave version 11.6 and up and for 3DS Max version 8.5 and 3DS Max version 2017 and up
OBJ - includes Base model and each of the morph targets
*************** MAX USERS*************** This model uses Tangent Directx Normal maps. For 3DS Max users, the 3DS Max 2009 and 2017 model work correctly as is. If you import this into a later version of 3DS Max (I dont know when they changed things) youll need to: 1) goto CUSTOMIZE => PREFERENCES => GAMA and LUTE => Turn off LUTE 2) goto CUSTOMIZE => PREFERENCES => bottom of screen - Normal Bump Mode => Select Directx, so it reads the maps correctly.
Even then, in the newer versions of Max the Normals maps will be very low (not showing up well) - They are there and will work, you just need to turn up the volume on them. So for Body instead of 1.0 in the normal map node use 1.2 or higher and in the additional Bump node instead of 0.08 use 0.008. *************** MAX USERS***************
This model comes with several pre-animated scenes to get you started: RegencyMan_Zero (base T-Pose and Rigged Scene) RegencyMan-StartWalking RegencyMan_JWalker RegencyMan_WalkCycle-02-Repeat RegencyMan_WalkCycle-single
I dont like to have too many control objects in my rigs, I like them simple and so I try to access the bones directly as often as possible. you can remove or add to the control objects I have placed on the rig.
