Twin Motion Characters

Eric Milberger
Advocate

I am having trouble finding sport characters for TwinMotion

For example a 2 Hockey Teams with Goalies - what format fbx?

 

I need Volleyball, Pickleball, Basketball and just general sports like lifting.

But where to find these. Any good sources?

If you want to place these in Twinmotion, you may have better luck asking for them in the official Twinmotion forum:

I am trying to find actors for a presentation

A Hockey Team (Player or players, Goalie). Two teams

 

Same for

Basketball

Pickleball

Soccer

Volleyball

Exercise

And kids doing sports

 

I have tried TwinMotion but when I talk to the parent company no help.

I did that and have never received a response.  I did contact the parent company and they did not help.  I did find a vendor of one player but it is not working.  I don’t know where to turn as I need to compete with my competitors.

Actors, like in real actors? Or you mean scales for some renders?

3D characters.  We have people but I need sports players.

 

I bought one as a start from EPIC’s web site.  A Hockey Player that was advertised would ahve other Jerseys.

 

Turns out it did not work and there is no warranty, and I don’t think they even supported their product.

 

I annoy afford to buy stuff without knowing I am not throwing away my money.  EPIC was not helpful.

The asset store on Epic is for UE and provides .uasset files. Would be amazing if they introduced a way to get them into TM, but at the current time that is not possible as far as I know.

BUT THERE HAS TO BE SOME WAY TO ADD PEOPLE OTHER THAN THE FEW WE HAVE.

Sure you could always try importing a model exported from Max or the likes, but neither AC nor TM are designed to handle those sorts of models... If you were to hire a visualisation expert, part of the cost would be their library and their ability to use and manipulate it. Given the shortcuts programs like TM and Lumion make, what is include and what you can achieve yourself is already pretty amazing. Maybe once MetaHuman moves along they might give it an export option that is compatible.

I am just having a tough time to find out what to use as I can only assume it needs to be some type or rigged or character?   I might assume it is a EPIC Character but would like to get down to the file type needed as it will be hard enough hiring or working without knowing the file type.
