Flyboy Barnstorm Pilot - MOCAP Rig and Motion Capture Data

Flyboy Barnstorm Pilot - MOCAP Rig and Motion Capture Data Low-poly 3D model

Flyboy Barnstorm Pilot Rigged and Animated for Lightwave 2019 and up and for 3DS Max version 2020 and up

This motion capture rigged version is intended to be used alone or in conjunction with the model “Flyboy Barnstorm Pilot” available seperatly (whos rig is built for traditional hand animation).

Ideally you would use the “Traditional Pose” model (the other one available) for close up or specific motions that you need to animate by hand.

And you would use this model for gross motions, walking, jumping etc... although you can hand pose this one too, it just works differently.

This rig is designed primarily for the motion capture data to animate.
Both models have the same Morph targets:
There are 51 morphs in this object - 8 of them are Phoneme controls:

The helmit also has 3 morph for raising the goggles and for moving the side flaps up and out of the way of the collar if needed.
This Model also includes 25 motion capture (MOCAP) data files for you to apply:

SittingIdle_128 Talking-Seq2_364
SitToStand_68 Talking0_113
StandingIdle_90 Talking1_155
StandToCrouch_19 Talking2_118

The MOCAP data was collected from various sources from BVH files to Mixamo (online) - and for both Max and Lightwave the models where “Characterized” in Autodesk MotionBuilder (MB) and then the motion data was also applied in MB.

For both 3DS Max and Lightwave this model comes with the following scenes:
Mocap_MASTER_BoneSetup - the base model and rig from which the characterized master was made.
Mocap_SetUp_Rig - Use this rig and scene to add your MOCAP data to (The Master)
Mocap_WalkStopSalute - see it finished
SIG1 or SIG2 - Signature image (In it’s own folder in MAX)
JogInPlace_77C-moving - Using a null to move the charactor

And the following folders:
Export From LW(MAX) To Characterize - the base uncharacterized fbx export
Chacterized for MotionBuilder - the characterized fbx
MB Motions - MotionBuilder motions
Aviator LW(MAX) Motions - the Lightwave “hmot” motions ot the Max ““ motions
On each version of the model there is a Master null or helper, that allows the entire model to move as a unit. It is located between the feet on the ground.

The scarf has it’s own bones and you can animate them as required.

Motion capture has always been the “Big Mystery” but it looks so cool, that is is worth the effort to work through.

I have tried to make this as easy as possible by providing characterized motion files and base setup scenes that you can run without effort. It will take some work to make changes to those scenes, and unhappily there is not a lot of help out there for Lightwave. For Max much more is available.

FB_Mocap_SetUp_Rig and FBMocap_WalkStopSalute scenes work out of the box and you can change or add “hmot” or “xaf” files to those scenes as you wish - so no worries there.
