It would be really cool that someone make a posing tool that poses human ragdolls in a “preposed” position.
There is a tool that is close of what i imagine, it’s called “animated props”, it allows you to animate your human ragdolls with NPC or Player animations (the same anim that you can see in when you do a spawnlist icon).
The problem with that tool is that it recreates an “entity” that isn’t a ragdoll, so after you get the position/animation you want, you can’t move the members of the character.(i also think that there should be a browser in that tool to help finding the animation you want)
There is another tool that help with posing (just a bit) it’s “stand pose tool”, this tool put your human ragdolls in a “T-pose” and non-human ragdolls in their original position.
To me, the perfect posing tool would be like “animated props” but would allow you to chose a specific frame of an animation in a preview window, then once you have chosen, it would pose your ragdoll like the stand pose tool does, but with the position you want, so after that you’ll just have to make little modifications to have your ragdolls posed as you want them to be.
And this perfect tool would also have a browser for the animation names.
If anybody feels able to make such a tool, you’re free to use these ideas and make it.
