Hi all,

Got a bit of a hassle. I want to make subtle bone movement changes in scene mode without using a predefined sequence. I've tried without sequence but then no bones show up in the scene. If I make a sequence and under it in the scene, then edit it how I want it and save it, when I reopen it, it reverts back to all the original sequence keys.

Sorry about the long story! :)
Can I edit a figures bone movements directly in scene mode?

All I want is to be able to edit bone keys directly in Scene mode to see the changes. Is there a way?
Really appreciate some advice here!
Thanks, Ian

General Anim8or Forum / Added Camera Settings?
« on: October 06, 2017, 05:47:53 pm »
Hi all. Question again :)
I've been having a problem with added Cameras in Scenes. I added a Camera num2 and set it as Active. When I rendered, all dim. I then tried setting the active value to 1, being a full morph value I thought it may be the same, still all dim. I then set it at 200 and the lighting suddenly looked close to right. To keep other cameras in unison with the same level of light as the main camera, what should this value be set at? Really appreciate any input! :)

General Anim8or Forum / Rendering faster without preview
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:37:06 pm »
Hi all. Is it possible to render a movie clip using Art without the preview. I understand it's slow and requires patience but the preview obviously slows it further using up RAM too. Is there a setting I don't know of. I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks in advance,

General Anim8or Forum / Expanding the Editing Track in Scene Mode
« on: September 24, 2017, 05:40:14 pm »
Hi all,

Is it possible to expand the editing track in Scene Mode? I have about 30 tracks including morphs and lights to edit and can only view 2 items simultaneously with the scroll button.

Thanks in advance for any info,

General Anim8or Forum / Old Hallway candle lighting ideas?
« on: September 19, 2017, 05:23:13 pm »
Hi all,  :D
I'm putting together a scene that takes place in an old medieval type hallway.  I've made the hallway, candles and morphs for the flames to move and flicker,(hopefully).  ::)
I have four candles and have set a spotlight over each one with inner 25 and outer 35 degrees radius which seems sort of okay but I'd like the candles to shed their light on the walls.(like real candles). Any ideas or suggestions?
I thought of using some kind of glow filters for this but mine are spheres and to blatantly visible!  :o
I'd also like to try and get the shadows from them to move which I thought may work if I move the lights randomly ever so slightly above them. I have a character that I'm working on and would like the light from the (candles) to cast his shadows.

Gee, I'd really appreciate any input on making this scene look a bit spooky!?  ;)

Look forward to any of your replies.


General Anim8or Forum / Can you scale when creating Morph targets?
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:35:09 am »
I've made a character face that I created morph targets for but when I scaled them smaller, one target distorted and the other ended upside down with a back view. When I rotated it, it had also distorted. I think I've got a nasty detailed character but I can see the mesh has way to many points. Could that be the problem....also eats RAM!! Where do I check the amount of faces and points an object has....what seems to be a reasonable amount of faces/points for a mesh for less RAM usage? My PC has 2Gb ram. I would really appreciate any help, suggestions or replies. ???
Hope u all have a good one!

Hi all,
I'm new here. I used Anim8or many years ago and am a bit rusty, I've been trying to make game head animations for voice over gaming samples. I'm trying to get into doing gaming or other cartoon voices. Does anyone have any character video clips from 30sec to 1min long that they'd be willing to share for me to create demos?
I will put your name as the credit for the animations...perhaps it could also help get someone into full time animation?
Here's a link to my voice overs should you like to take a listen. I recommend listening "Voice Showcase" and "Game/Animation Characters"

I really hope some of you are keen! Other ideas are welcome too!
