Metapipe Prepare to Export

Then press Load Body to import your Body_Drv file.

If you didn't creat it yet, you need to go back and look for body preperation tutorial!

It should look like the image below after importing your body.

Now we can move joints and match our custom body.

You shoul only use translate. Don't rotate or scale your joints!!

Metapipe deform arm

Import your custom mesh, and try to match both meshes by moving joints.

Your custom mesh should be in same pose with Metahuman body before import into the scene!! 

Metapipe matching joints

When you finished with moving joints, press Fix Body button. That will match the joints with the head joints.

Metapipe Fix Body

Fix Body and Connect Body works together. Fix Body fixes the joint positions and Connect Body links the movement of body and head.

Select modified Metahuman mesh and inside Shape Editor, press Create Blend Shape button. We will do the same process that we did for custom head. The Delta Blendshape method!

Before add blendshapes, duplicate modified metahuman and add both duplicated and custom mesh as target blendshape.
