Flip Animated Mesh

Recommended Posts

I have an animated set of hands for a game I'm working on. The problem is that when I animated them, I animated them so that the main character is right-handed. For some reason, when I export the mesh is reversed in that it becomes a left handed mesh.

 

Is there a way via Leadwerks to basically flip the mesh? Or would I need to modify a shader to allow this to happen? I tried to do negative scaling, but that sort of messes up the local coordinates for things like rotation.

I dont have it the editor here, but I seem to recall you could flip the direction of the axis with checkboxes

What 3D modeling program do you use? It seems like the mesh gets flipped the wrong way on export? Maybe there's some option to change the handedness or orientation when you export the model? :)?

Well I'm using CharacterFX to do animation, which is kind of a primitive tool to be honest. I don't really like Blender much, so this is the only route I will go. But maybe Guppy's suggestion might help. For some reason it I can't find an option for this in UU3D.

I have used uu3d to make a character face the opposite way using rotate around the y or z coord, can't remember which.Would that work for you?

I don't think that would work, because I have to physically switch the axes, and rotations wouldn't be able to do that, unless you are referring to something different and I'm misunderstanding it.

Nick, try this: in UU3D import your model, save as directx 9 and mark the option 'flip handedness' on export...then, re-import the directx file you just saved and save back as .fbx. That should fix it. Just tried it with an animated/rigged .fbx model, and it worked for me. smile.png
