Rigging a non-T-posed character to the T posed bone skeleton?

Recommended Posts

Hey, is there any way (without manually deforming my character into the T pose) to rig a not T-posed character (arms placed lower, legs in a triangle shape) to the default T-posed SL skeleton? Im using blender.

Technically it is possible, but i have no clue if it can be done in blender or  such tools... likely not.

The collada file contains the inverse bind matrices (INV_BIND_MATRIX)  for each bone, that transforms the bone to standard positon/rotation from the bind shape (with origo in the pivot point), and during animations the rotations are applied on  these transformed bones. You would need to replace the T-pose inverse bind matrices with your current shape inverse matrices. (The inverse means that the forward matrix moves the bone from  the bone's own position/rotation to the bind shape position/rot and the inverse moves it back.)

If you can set the bind shape somehow in blender.... no idea.
