Generating Physics Proxies

  1. Click Edit Proxies at the top of the Character Tool window.

    Info

    This adds all existing proxies as editable attachments (named $ + joint name)

  2. Hold Shift and left click on  the render mesh (note that the character must be in the default pose).

...

As you can see in the *.gif above, after you have generated a proxy, you can change its shape, size and rotation in the properties Properties.

Info

When holding shift and left clicking on an existing proxy, the properties for that attachment will be expanded in the Properties.

Info

If the proxies were not generated during this session, changing Geometry Type will just try to match the general shape of the previous type (unless the original type was a mesh, in which case it will be used as a source for primitive approximation). If necessary, the proxy attachment can be created manually on a specific joint (Purpose should be set to Ragdoll, and the name must be set to $ + joint name). 

...

  1. Select the proxy you want to change.
  2. go to Properties -> Transform -> Type and change this to Mesh.
  3. The proxy will now look much more detailed:

    Info

    If you think the polygon count for this proxy is too high or not high enough, you can change it with the Mesh Simplification property:

    Mesh Simplification 0, 2, and 5
