I suppose I will have to experiment unless someone comes up with a definitive answer
Yeah, that’s probably the best, since you aren’t going to get a definitive answer until you ask a definitive question. “Better” and “more advanced” are pretty meaningless, unless you define what you really want. Like I said, there are autorigging tools, if that’s what you call “better” and “more advanced”. The meaning of “really good weight painting tools” also varies depending upon what you need to do with them. If you have high poly characters and are very concerned with fine detail mesh bending, etc., then that’s different than if you’re using low poly game characters and don’t really care about that fine detail stuff.
Now, if you don’t know enough about rigging and weight painting to know what to ask about those specifics, just tell us what exactly you’re doing and maybe we can help you out.
BTW, thanks Wendy for the info on Carrara rigging in other apps. I had no idea you could transport it like that. I always kept hearing it’s Carrara only, but never really tried it.
And you do like that iClone, don’t you?
