Hello Ziva team!
I'm animator Minyi.
I have studied Ziva Muscle Simulation about a month for new Creature project and I need to simulate dog's muscles.
I know ziva is a great muscle simulation, but I'm not sure if it's working correctly for my project.
I hope you understand that I ask basic questions and please check the wrong parts.
For dog's simulation, the modeler gave me the data.
The modeling data I have are [bones, muscles, fascia, skin], 4 steps like that.
This is Bones' modeling image. They are different objects.
This is Muscles' modeling image. They are different objects.
Image of fascia modeling.
Image of a skin modeling.
First, I rigged the bones and applied them to running animation.
And then, I attached the muscles.
This is solver setting value. Could you check if I set correctly?
I apply Gravity value 0 at -20f, and -9.8 at -10f.
This is a video.
After that, I exported my bones and muscles as abc files, and started to work on the fascia in a new scene.
All bones and muscles have zBone.
fascia applied to the zCloth.
Please check the solver setting value and the fascia setting value.
This is a video .
As you can see, the neck part is torn and the leg parts have also same problems.
At this point, I applied STEP 1 of smooth to the fascia model.
About zBone of neck parts, I apply 105 to contact stability exp. The other parts of zBone are 106.
I really need you to help how I solve these problems.
This is my first time to work creature's muscles, so I really want to finish this project with good quality, using your program.
But it's not easy to work succesfully by myself, also unexpected problems make me feel depressed.
That's why I need your advices and I think it must be very helpful to my project.
Thank you for reading my questions and I want you to know I am honored to have chance to use your great program.
I'll wait for your answer.
