Nooooo  :'(


...yessss!  8) ;)


Just a rendertest in Blender... One of my big weak points: Animating walking persons is my nightmare.
First I had to play around with some parts of the object before I could establish any armature. Rigging itself was a horror, but a walking animation is the deepest hell of 3D modelling horror... if you are only autodidact like me and anyway no modeller...

But I hope if hundreds of them walk in a foggy landscape... perhaps it doesn't look so bad...

Doc, is there any way to import FBX animations into Blender, and then export an OBJ sequence? If so, try Mixamo. https://www.mixamo.com/#/
It works like a charm, and you don't need to skin the mesh. Mixamo does that for you. As far as I remember, you can even export the skinned and boned mesh out of Mixamo.

Thanks Hannes! Many many thanks! Already testing... during the complete last night! ;D

Unfortunately, the entire film project is being postponed for some time now... e.g. started to animate the Klingons... yes - me with the turtle on my head! ;D


...now time to go to sleep...  ::)

Yeah, Mixamo is a fantastic (and free) help.
Here is a small animation with a 31 frames walking animation. Five populations with different offsets each.

Bobby, you don't need to download Mixamo. It's a (free) online rigging service, and you can add a lot of animations to your model. It's best to upload your model (a neutral pose is recommended - T-pose would be best, but if the arms are slightly hanging down, it works as well) as an FBX . Thus you can embed the textures. Then you can export the whole thing as an animation (FBX again), and import it in another 3d app (so Blender seems to work, as Doc wrote) to finally export an OBJ sequence.
