Title: Fun with Nested Quotes
Post by: ronaldefarmer on January 13, 2015, 04:59:42 am

I just thought nested quotes would make an interesting texture.

They do rather, don't they?

Nice one ronaldefarmer (http://s6.postimg.org/p4cqdev8d/grysmile.gif)
 You've inspired me to make an addition/adaption to your idea. You might find it interesting (http://s6.postimg.org/4y98eizkt/grywink.gif)
 But i spent the last ...long while..... looking for the thread with that 'texture' at the end of it. (search didn't find it either)
  Would love to be able to add to your idea here...can't find the thread...will make a start on a similar(ish) scene, and have a look again in another while.
 
 If you read this before i get back, and you have the name of the thread with the nest on, could you post it please, theres something i really wanna do...............must make some more emotigifs.....

 Thanks ronaldefarmer
 I'm out've time for now, but this is how far i got.
 Imagined it with rotation, and even sound effects, but this is probly about it for me....

That's pretty cool, johnar!  And strangely hypnotic...

Hello Johnar, anybody would think anim8or has a physics coding, looking at your cool creation. I assume you created this gif animation frame by frame i.e re-setting the texture, similar to stop animation?

Nope. Morph targets. (http://s24.postimg.org/cn9xhqr5t/SSG03_G.gif)(http://s6.postimg.org/p4cqdev8d/grysmile.gif)

Very cool Johnar, nice effect! Can you explain how you used morph targets to do this? I would like to try it.

I initially thought it would be easier than it actually was.(My first couple of attempts wouldn't work)
 In the end i made 14 pieces, (1 object), and textured each of them seperately.
 For the textures, i chopped up the nest image, into 14 pieces, and added 1 cut texture to each piece of object.
 (the objects had extra edges added, at roughly the length of the quote, and the texture is applied to that 'part' of the face only)
 
  For creating the morphs, i hid all but one at a time,(easier) and simply slid the textured area from left to right.
 The rest was just a matter of getting the keys right in scene mode.

 Far from perfect, and to do all four sides i would've needed to prepare the remaining 3 sides as i'd done the first.
 Animation is illusion. When you see the actual file its pretty untidy, but the theory works, and with a bit more care and work, the illusion could be made a lot better.
 I've attached the file with textures.  (http://s6.postimg.org/p4cqdev8d/grysmile.gif)
