After making tools for Overwatch & Black Ops III animations, I decided to try something really hard. So this is the tool for Morpheme animations from Bioshock infinite.


How to use it:

1. extract .morphemeanimset and .morphemeanimsequence files from package with gildor's extract tool
2. use bsi_anim tool on .morphemeanimsequence files to convert animations to .SMD
- Use batch command to convert all files at once (for %a in (*.morpheme*) do bsi_anim "%a")
- animsets are needed for skeleton structure and initial pose, so keep them as they are, in a root folder for each animation set.
3. load the corresponding model into editor, load and apply SMD animation to it.
- animations in UE3 are left-handed, so you need to mirror the model or the animation before applying it.

Important notes and restrictions:
- animation type 2 not supported (usually used for short or very simple animations)
- spline rotations not supported (haven't seen any of this type yet)
- in some files you may encounter interpolation problems. I have to time to fix it properly yet, so for now you can add extra parameter to the command line, and this will turn time-expanding off, this will fix the issue.

A minor problem detected, which is causing some animations to work incorrectly. This will be fixed in the next version.

You must be able to convert most animations with current tools. What else is needed?

Hi id-daemon,

thanks for making this tool. I don't know if you're giving support for it, but I am totally lost on how to actually apply the animation to a model. I'm a newbie so maybe it's just a a really basic beginner error.

I have the .smd file, but no matter what I do, the moment I apply it, the model gets all messed up.

What I'm doing is the following:
1) Importing model into 3ds Max with the ActorX Import Plugin from gildor (it's a .psk file)
2) Import the .smd file into 3ds max

As a result, it's like the model has been turned around, the facebones are facing the hair, and so on:

I have tried importing the model and mirroring it on different axis (X, Y, XY) before importing the .smd. I have done this both on just the actual object and on the object including the bones. Always the same result.

Even though the model is facing the right way before importing the .smd file, the model still gets turned around just like before.

Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks so much in advance

I cannot help you here, because I dont have 3ds max.

You need to mirror model or skeleton from left to right before applying animation. Some people told me that its impossible to correctly mirror a model in 3ds max. I can only suggest you using some other software.

Is the source available anywhere / is there any future plans to support animation type 2? I'm really interested in using the gun and hand animations and these seem to be of type 2. If the source is available anywhere I'd certainly be willing to try and get type 2 working.
