      Universal Human Rigged Base Mesh

      Note: please check the License Agreement before purchasing.

      BONUS! Free The Passenger DVD for early adopters (include a name & shipping address at checkout if you want this, otherwise leave blank).  Offer stands until it feels like it's gone on long enough, or supplies miraculously run out.

      This rigged human base mesh is the framework upon which my formerly entitled "Perpetual Multipurpose Personal Person Project" is based. The P.M.P.P.P. was made to alleviate the burden of rigging, weight painting, retopologising, UV unwrapping and generally having to reinvent the wheel for every new humanoid character. By distilling the shared features of the human race into a single form, it provides a neutral, reusable human-shaped canvas for sculpting, texturing, posing and animating.

      Due to popular demand, I've decided to make the base mesh and rig available for general consumption, and have thereby redubbed it the more easily pronounceable "Universal Human" project. So now you can have your very own personal person too! Use it to mind the kids, ward off ghosts, or even to taste-test your auntie Ethel's scone mix! Also works as a handy insect repellent or inflatable life preserver.*


      Other useful uses include:

      • A basis for sculpting and texturing new characters
      • Posing for art reference and paint-overs
      • Animating
      • Instructional presentations
      • Pulling it apart to see what makes it tick


      Here is a work in progress demonstration of the rig from April 2019.  Improvements have been made in the interim (including disabling Bendy Bones to improve torso deformation), so the final product differs slightly in appearance.

      ...and some examples of what can be achieved using the base mesh (which has also since been improved):

      There are plans to separately release individual body parts and feature upgrades as they are developed (such as male and female body shapes, which are already available), however there is no guarantee to this effect.


      MAIN FEATURES

      • Designed to accommodate realistic character creation
      • Neutral base mesh averaged from male, female and 3 races.  Both genders can be enabled by applying one of the male or female base meshes (sold separately)
      • Full IK body rig, including fingers (ideal for pressing against surfaces). Note that the feet are rigged to accommodate shoes, so while toes are present, they are not individually rigged. Facial rig is not included.
      • 2 UV map variants: full body, and head-focused, arranged symmetrically for easy mirroring. See screenshots.
          • Lightweight mesh for responsive performance. Poly count (before subdivision): body: 5,452 faces (quads); eyeballs: 692 faces (quads) each
      • Topology optimised for posing and animation; edge loops follow muscular direction where possible, without compromising deformation quality. Modelled with separate clothing in mind (i.e. geometry is less dense in typically covered areas)
      • Corrective shape keys to preserve volume in most joints
      • IK/FK switching
      • Soft IK to dampen "popping" when IK chains are near full extension
      • Finger curling controls for quick hand posing. See demo.
      • All quads
      • Compatible with Blender 2.79 and 2.8x
      • No complicated script installations or add-ons necessary; just load and go!

      See the Operational Chart for rig operational instructions.


      KNOWN LIMITATIONS

      • IK/FK switching latency in Blender 2.79 (no latency apparent in 2.8x)
      • No IK/FK snapping is implemented, so IK controls will need to be manually realigned when switching from one to the other
      • A side effect of one of the posing features is that the Torso and Thorax controls drift from the spine if the pelvis is moved in X or Y. A workaround is to select both pelvis and torso and move them in unison.
      • While the body will deform well in most normal situations, this may not always be the case for more unusual or extreme poses. Manual re-shaping is recommended in those instances.

      *not suitable for use as a flotation device.
