Ripping and importing animations from GoldenEye to 3dsMax is easy!
Porting animations from GoldenEye's skeleton to Half-Life's skeleton is DEFINITELY NOT.
What this doesn't get across is that the bones on each rig are oriented differently to each other, and the amount of difference varies wildly.
Like, one GE bone might require each axis to be cycled. So GE's X axis matches HL's Y axis, GE's Y matches HL's Z, etc.
Another GE bone might match the X axis on a HL bone, but Y and Z will be swapped, and Z will need its values inverted.
Basically rules are fake and none of this is worth the end goal (Goldeneye anims in HL), but I'm GONNA DO IT ANYWAY
@Lollie It looks like you've finally found an animation process that's even fussier than you, goodspeed my beeper.
@kerplunk It's really good and painless and *definitely* not overkill
@Lollie I choose to believe you
