Copy Shape and Blend Shape (with PRO version only)

This function is available with PRO version only.

You can use these functions from the "Edit" menu.

・・・
◆Generate the shape turning to upper left/right and lower left/right directions

With the Blend Shape, you can generate the model's shape turning to upper left/right and lower left/right directions semi-automatically from its shape in front and turning to relative directions - up, down, left, and right that are created from ANGLE_X or ANGLE_Y. They look quite natural and in good quality.

 *A new function has been added for completing the above process in one operation
Synthesize Corners


After you complete the shapes of front, left and up, start creating the shape for turning the head towards the upper left.
FrontLeft
Up


Set the Parameter on the left and select the polygons or the Deformer to select "Edit" - "Copy Shape", then change the Parameter to upper left (while keeping the polygons or the Deformer selected) and select "Paste Shape" to make the shape of turning towards the upper left same as that of turning left left.
 
Select the polygons in left condition and select "Copy Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+C). Set the Parameter to upper left. Select "Paste Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+V) to make the shape of upper left same as of left.


Then change the Parameter to up (while keeping selecting the polygons or the Deformer) to copy "Paste Shape" and change the Parameter to upper left to select "Blend Shape". Enter the value for "Blend Ratio" as you wish. If you enter "50", it will be a mixture with 50% of left and 50% of up.
 
Select the polygons in up condition and select "Copy Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+C). Set the Parameter to upper left and select "Blend Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+B). Enter the value "50" to "Blend Ratio" and click "OK". The shape in the mixture of 50% left and 50% up is generated.


Change the Parameter to front to select "Copy Shape", then change the Parameter to upper left and select "Blend Shape" (-100%) to generate the shape ideal for upper left.
 
Select the polygons in front condition and select "Copy Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+C). Set the Parameter to upper left and select "Blend Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+B). Enter the value "100" to "Blend Ratio" and click "OK".The Blend Shape is completed.

According to our test results, the shape generated from above method is almost the same as to generate the shape manually. You may add some fixing as needed to complete.
Above images are generated from blending procedure. Click the image to compare two images created by blending and manually.



◆Other usage
Or you can use above method to adjust the shape. Copy the shape where there is no key on the Parameter and paste it where there is a key.
You want to adjust the left brow which is inclined to left.Set the Parameter to the shape which you want to change, and select "Copy Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+C). Set it to the previous Parameter and select "Paste Shape" (Ctrl+Shift+V).

If you want to make the reflection from right to left, copy the right and blend the front and -100% (or 200%).
