View Full Version : One's Head On Another's Body
01-03-2006, 07:50 PM
I've seen a few really accurate attempts at taking the head off a model such as Luke Skywalker or Han Solo and putting it on another body like the Stormtrooper. I'm interested in creating a sort of trooper-model by taking the head off one model and placing it on the armoured body of another and I was wondering about the steps and tools I would need to take in order to achieve that.
I hope I was clear, and thanks in advance for reading. :ears1:

First things first:
Get 3D studio max 4.x, 5 or 6, then install the modding tools and get .glm importer for max.

I want to do a similar project. I've already made the "new" model but I've no idea what to do next. Can you help me?
Here's a screenshot:

I used Milkshape. But I made the 3ds file and exported it into 3dsmax 4. So, what do I have to do now?

Get ready for some reading ;)
Here's my website (http://www3.sympatico.ca/psykopat), which contains a few tutorials by myself and other modders. Read everything especially the weighting tutorial.
I also recorded 2 video captures (not really in-depth tutorials) but might also help.
1st one can be found on website.
Here's the 2nd one (not JA related but a quick example on manual weighting):

Sorry for double posting but I've a question: Can I use the biped to weght my model, I mean as skeleton?

No, you cant use a biped, stick with the JA skeleton.
