Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Figure Default Setting in Sequence Mode
« on: December 04, 2014, 03:12:56 pm »
Per http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php/topic,5036.0.html ...

Crabby as you see in the above thread's message #13 has his legs set with all the angles... and each is at "Default" setting.  When viewed in "Object" mode his legs are spread straight out, and in "Figure" mode his bones all line up similarly, except that the "Default" angles give them the pose of the legs being bent.

Now though, I put Crabby into "Sequence" and his "Default" is gone, legs are splayed straight out again.  Is that supposed to happen? The whole reason I set the "Default" was so his legs would be in a crab-stand position, not to still be spread-eagled.  It's been so long I forget...

Minor adjustments to bone weighting, replaced pincer arms...

kreator:  Of course I remember that! "Strange Worlds" contest for Anim8or.com and our original AnimAnon forum... and one of the more involved anim8or compilations ever shown to display just what all anim8or can do! Still great stuff after all this time!

johnar:  Your comments, suggestions and help are always welcome.  Many benefit from your advice here, regardless of whether I've pigheadedly gone forward on my own or not ;-)   

I was just thinking, my oldest granddaughter is 8, and has loved making things in Minecraft for over a year now... Perhaps she is ready for anim8or, now that she has a pretty good reading comprehension!

Heh, was already on it before catching your message, johnar... while you can't see the colors of the bone-weights, you can see how I set the bone angles, and had them defaulted to the pose shown for the figure.  I remade the legs, and still need to remake the pincer arms... decide just how I want to do the eyes and eyestalks... and then need some fine-tuning of the weight-painting for a bit better appearance of the bends at the various knee-joints.  A few problem areas that limit what I can do skinning, but after all, we're dealing with a basic program here.

Thanks, neiro.. Did you ever show your crab here?  (errrrr... that does sound a bit weird, doesn't it...)

Here, I did a bit of rework ... going to try johnar's suggestion of skinning. I am a bit unsure about it.  I neglected to save the parts before subdividing them.  I don't know how well skinning works with subdvided parts...

Actually, no, I did mean as separaate figures... as in independently animated legs, pincers, etc. Thanks for the feedback, johnar, chewing on it.

Yes, I know it's not kosher, but am posting again... Am updating the original images on the first post as I develop the crab. 

One thing I'm unsure about... is whether to create the various main body parts (pincers, legs, eyestalks, etc) as separate figures.  So, at this point am just assembling the whole crab in one figure.

Yes, I sat down and started making something... Been a long time....

Figure views so far, without and with bones visible...

Ensoniq5 is the workhorse on this project. I've just been a great admirer for awhile now.

hehe... Not even ready to make sense of this! Nowhere near touching scripting yet...

I really like the comic look!  Are we going to see any animation?
