 Lol. Judge Judy. Nice one  jwalt
 Court room drama...Cow in court lol.
 Hows your lip syncing?. If you wanted some practice, a court room could be the place.....

 The short flick i'm making at the moment is probly going to need a lot of  'talkíng', so have been looking for timesavers and shortcuts.
 Actual lipsyncing in Anim8or is not so hard, but fairly time consuming, and takes a bit of concentration. (i cant do it without pen and paper), but results can be worthwhile.
 If you plan on making a court scene, (animation), and trial maybe, then chances are you'll need to get in to some lipsyncing. If thats the way you decide to go, theres a few little tricks can save time, and frustration. One, which i'll mention now, just in case, is: Lipsyncing is often easier done first, before animating the character........
but then, you may not be wanting to go down that track.
 If you're, at the moment, just wanting to make a scene......i haven't seen judge judy for years....then i guess by watching an episode or 2 you'll see other things that need adding. (they have camera-men in the courtroom?)
 Anyway, good luck with this if you're going to take it further. Hopefully, ideas will come to mind and things will grow.
 (i once made a short movie, inspired by a joke which i'd heard. That worked out. It was a fairly good joke, and i thought of a way to animate the story. By doing this, i knew the story had its merits, (it was a good joke), so i had a definite goal.
 If you plan on making a court scene animation, but are having trouble coming up with a decent topic/story/case/idea, try reading lots of jokes. (court related probly).
 You might come across one that you like, and that you can see a way of adapting it to your courtroom scene.
 Nice one jwalt

for some reason, the picture reminded me of that thing floating around the internet about "economic models explained with cows" (might have a copy on my hard disk, if you can't find it elsewhere) - which, combined with that scene you've set up, could provide a good starting point for a little sketch 8)

I had not planned on lip synching anything, but it is worth a thought. You did motivate me to add a state-of-the-art camera to the scene:



Now, I need someone to operate the camera.    ;-)

  economics explained with 2 cows. Funny you should mention that. I first saw it just the other day. The version i saw had 5 or 6 'economies explained with cows'.  Today i found 21....

Thank you. I do get discouraged from time to time. Not Judge Judy related, but here's something:



The cow got invited to lunch, it appears.

Decided to make that Christmas Dinner



I should, probably, have extruded the white faces to simulate the fur trim, but I didn't want to sink any more time into this one.  ;-)

Ho, ho, ho... Merry Christmas, folks!
