Hi,

I am having trouble importing a .ply mesh file. What I want to do is import it then auto rig it. Export the auto rigged file so that I don't have to keep having to auto rig the mesh every time. Does anyone have any tips?

Once I manually auto rig the mesh it works fine but I don't want to keep having to do this. Is there a way to automatically auto rig?

You can export a character to a COLLADA format file (.dae) once it is rigged:

 

scene.exportCharacter("MyCharacter", "/path/to/where/data/will/be/saved")

 

Then you can use this .dae as a fully rigged character. Does that work for you?

That's python code that you can run from the sbgui application by opening the Window->Command Window. 

There is also a button called 'Save Character' at the bottom of the Window->Retarget Viewer.
