Royalty free usually says you can't re-sell models and animations and distribute them in a format that can be extracted (Cal3d). If you're going to use pre-existing files make absolutely certain that they are Open Source and ok to re-sell. I appreciate it takes time to convert stuff and it feels logical to charge for your time, but sadly that's not the case without an agreed contract/business dealing with the original owner. I doubt iClone or Miximo (who make a business from such files) are ok with this, I could be wrong, but I'm not going to go off and read their fine print.
Be careful you're not setting yourself up for trouble. Hell hath no fury like a 3d artist/animator who finds out someone else is selling their work
No, the hard part is to create the motion/model in the first place. Without the position and timing data being right, file conversion is pointless
Trolled by Chris above !!! maybe even quasimodder but not sure because his words didn't seem to translate so well.
Happily I don't share Chris opinions () expressed above, and find them misplaced within my forum post. (should i go to his Addon forum posts then write a post condescend and warn him about the work he does? Make up something and talk about stealing etc...
Try to kill his cred so nobody will trust him??? I'm not a fan of this Trolling.
I have the freedom and right to use parts of my Royalty free assets (to use in any Game engine) from companies such as Miximo within my addons.
If people want to argue about legalities and etiquette, surely this forum post is not the place; way off topic
Chris's saying 'No' (what the hard part is....etc) doesn't make it true or valid for me ... just how he see things.
Just his point of view how things are; his view may not be universal and I reserve the right to totally disagree.
There are many Royalty free companies that make a business of selling 3D Assets. They are made for using in your games/ your addons.
Miximo is just one:
Thank you for your ?concern
chris; I've read the fine print...
Feeding the Trolls: Don't give them fuel but i can't resist one thing:The Hard part.....LOL
Animation Position and timing can be re-coded easily with the right tools. EG. I completely re-coded, re-timed my curtsy animations with many new layer edits. The keypoints were then moved and changed for better asthetics...
Most animations are generally just like sentences..short without context.. until.. I can cut or add to them to make them relevant to what i'm doing.
This is a great starting point:The framework, a storyboard matrix where i could add new directions, placements and new footsteps onto my Male01/Female01/. bipeds..etc. with my reference data.
At Times, in some situations, there is a scarcity of data to work with when making mesh/animations/music/etc; but only at those times do i need to go old-school CG dev....
It's only hard if one keeps on making things the hard way:
Making things from nothing and scratch is just plane silly.if you do it for everything.....Have the freedom to use it all; re-cycled,old, new and any parts of Royalty free assets too.

I love these!!!... What do I have to do to purchase these?... I apologize I went to your web site though was a little confused on how it works:( But I love your work and would like to purchase the animations to enhance my films... Do you have any animations that could kick the door open?
Sorry Reshonda, no option to purchase these addons at this time.
Confused at being a Patron of 3DTree? If you like to support what I develop and sometimes end up with something you liked, you got to be in one of the rewards slots for more then 30days then 4days into the new month, if your Cred is good I can then licence the latest addon to your username....
Read the activity page to see what people are saying and what has been shown over the last few months.
You can't see all the addons you missed out on over the previous months, but you would enjoy Extra rewards and be able to see some of the past addon WorkInProgress posts.
You could be a Patron of the Arts, it's not a member of some marketplace where you take... what you want.
My Rewards Patrons for last calendar month can pick up their licenced copies at any time.
If you want to know about my projection for the future and policy just read the July update post at the
activity feed to learn more.
No animation to kick a door open; Though it's a very easy and possible animation set (some for the door and some for the human)
Mutant has a new skeleton, Male01 Standard MovieStorm Biped....
