General Anim8or Forum / Anim8or + Live Action???
« on: November 01, 2011, 09:32:45 pm »
How in the heck would one go about compositing a 3d model into a moving live-action scene? I can understand a stationary shot (I've tried them before, actually). I don't have any skills with programs like Blender, so until I can get the years I spent trying to learn it to stick, I'm stuck with Anim8or (not to say that that's a bad thing...). I know of a couple 3d-matchmoving programs like Boujou (I use a free one called Voodoo Camera Tracker), But I have NO idea how to get a 3d model into those. I just makes not sense to me at all. I'd even go for being able to put a moving image in the background and animating it right in Anim8or! Any one know of a solution, or have this problem?

Finished Works and Works in Progress / Animation Project - Meebles!
« on: September 10, 2011, 12:58:06 pm »
Yo, everybody! I just got started on a new animation project called 'Meebles' about these little... guys called 'meebles', who live in this world... IDK, I haven't made many characters yet, nor is there yet a concept, but below is a very quick expression test I did.

I'll try to work some stuff out, but currently, the second character (Nippy) who clearly is more realistic than the first (Leep) is having many, maaaaannnny skinning problems. I don't know if I should choose influences or weights, but I do know that chances are I'll choose weights. On top of that, I can'tthink of any more characters or coneptual ideas, so if you have any, lay them on me!

That Steve (or someone with access to the site) update the main site on August 16th? Was it one of you mods, or was it Steve?

General Anim8or Forum / Working on something, need a model...
« on: July 29, 2011, 05:06:57 pm »
Hi, everyone. Sorry to have to make this sound like I'm some guy who doesn't know how to do anything, but if anyone has a dragon model (maybe one from the modelling contest) that they're willing to let me borrow for a short YouTube video series, I'd be glad. If you do, please PM or email me@ Thanks!

General Anim8or Forum / 3d model to real life prop?
« on: June 29, 2011, 05:01:00 pm »
Hi, everyone. I made this quick model of a sword I call the 'Hell Blade'. I'm not planning to use it for any animation purposes as of now, but I want to know if there a way to build it using a UV un-wrapper to create a net, or maybe export it to .obj and CNC mill it? If anyone has any ideas, please tell me! Thanks!

General Anim8or Forum / Scaling up a texture
« on: June 04, 2011, 10:05:02 pm »
Hi, everyone. I'm designing a bag for my portable Roland DAW, and I made a decent trans map to go on the front of the plastic casing which would be on front. Only problem is, it doesn't fit the correct size, it's a bit too small. I've triede making the actual texture bigger, but that only adds more definition, no make it any larger on the model. what do I do?

General Anim8or Forum / Light not working!!!
« on: May 14, 2011, 01:04:40 pm »
Hi, everyone. I'm attempting to render this scene with either a spot or a local light cast on a black object with a black ground/floor object below it. The light is doing nothing to black objects, but I can see it casting light on lighter object. I basically need to be able to tell the difference between the black object and black floor, but the light won't cast. Can someone help?

{EDIT} Apparently my scene will render with the light, but the light doesn't cast when I'm in camera01 view!! What is going on?

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / ART Ray Tracer problem!!
« on: April 22, 2011, 10:15:51 pm »
I'm stuck in a huge rut right now.... I'm working on a scene which requires complex reflections to be composited into a live-action scene. I built a nice-looking 3d claw/robo arm that uses a mid Kr value... I'm trying to render it in a scene where there's a character who's standing inside the arms, kinda where they;re attached to his back. BUT, I need the reflections on the robo-arms while the character is invisible. I want to not see the character, but still see the reflection. Is this possible? Thanx

Finished Works and Works in Progress / Roboklaw
« on: April 22, 2011, 07:18:37 am »
Hi, everyone. I've been doing a lot lately, stacking school among music, animation and my YouTube channel. Today (actually across 4/21 and 4/22), I whipped up a great looking robotic arm dubbed 'Roboklaw'. It is extremly reflective at this point, so you  might not see it at first against the white background. I have some animation tests I'll show within the week.

General Anim8or Forum / MultiCamera Images?
« on: December 22, 2010, 04:25:58 pm »
Hey, everyone. Something has come to my mind; the fact that (as far as I know) only Camera 1 can have an image, but I need my Cam2 to. Anyone know what to do about this?

Finished Works and Works in Progress / Flying space ship
« on: December 20, 2010, 06:53:05 pm »
Hey, everyone. This isn't really an only-Anim8or topic... I used Anim8or to model this spaceship in this video...:

Layered the pole/beam/whatever, and composited the two together. How's the model? How bout the animation? Maybe even the video itself?
[EDIT] Real one's up now.
