I am trying to re-target some mocap onto a humanoid that his multiple arm limbs. Like 4,6, 8 arms, etc. I’m not so familiar with mocap retargeting so I’m wondering what the best approaches are. I’ve looked into HumanIK and retargeting works great on normal humans in my tests. I suppose I could try to copy the animation and have the extra arms be offset from the original animation.
I’m wondering if there are better approaches though. Can HIK be extended to accommodate extra limbs? Are there resources where I can learn about how more advanced retargeting can be done so I can maybe write my own solution? Like how is HIK doing it’s retargeting under the hood? Or does there already exist software that has these features built in? I am pretty new to mocap and retargeting so I probably am overlooking some things that might be common knowledge in this realm. Thanks for any help
