General Anim8or Forum / Model Turned Black
« on: June 04, 2013, 03:16:21 am »
Hey everyone, Long time no see.

So I've been remaking my pony model for the billionth time in hopes of making an animated web series. I went to open up Anim8or one day to skin my model, and this happened:

Any idea what went wrong? The entire model is encased in a transparent layer (for the cartoon look) and it seems to have turned black. I removed the texture and readded it, but that didn't seem to work. It looks this way in Figure Mode too. Can this be fixed?

It looks perfectly fine when it's rendered, I just can't see my parts.

Lol, that is a funny face! How did you make the eyes movable?

My crit is that I think the eyes are a little too far apart.  Unless you want them to be like that for the character's specific features.

Thanks for all the positive feedback! I think I'll leave out the steam. Wax's particles just aren't giving me the desired effect.  They look like they would be good for making snow and that's about it. Anyway, I'll be animating onward.  I'll still have the clip if I decide to change my mind.

I would like to be a part of it if I'm wanted. Not sure what I would fit best for though.  I like organic modelling.

I would have downloaded it, but the ratings aren't the best. Comments say it locks up a lot and doesn't support much.

The render went pretty fast for rendering the machine, but as soon as it gets to the pony, it slows WAAAAY down...

Here's my latest render

I can see that my crusher is opening too far after it crushes, so I must have forgotten to add some extra keys. Maan.. I don't want to render all that again!  It took me all day! (from about 1PM to somewhere around 11:30PM). I guess I could leave out the pony for the next render and then render the ponies flying around for the next part.

I do only render with Scanline, and I've never tried out any scripts so... yeah.

Thanks. The color attribute works fine.  I hope radius will be made animatable someday though, it would make a bit more sense to newer users.

You know something, Cori? You're brilliant. :)

Really, I've silently lurked around the forums and seen your work, animations, models, you name it. You've got a great eye and some real talent.
Just want to emphasize the animation part, you can really go far with that if you work at it. Your last few animations have looked and… animated?… very well.

The progress on this is wonderful. That last render looks amazing IMO.

Really? Thanks! I think that's the nicest thing anyone on the forum has ever said to me :)

Anyway, here's the first movie render.

I'm not sure I like how fast the camera moves to get in front of the crusher, but I don't know how I can fix it and have it still be in the right place at the right time.  My blue light also messed up, but I can fix that.  Once I have my official render, I'll use Wax to add spraying steam to the scene.

Is it possible to animate the radius of lights?  It would be very helpful to be able to do that, but if not I can always change the color to make it appear not as bright unless anyone has other suggestions.

I did notice that my renders look more realistic now, but that could just be me

More updates: Started working on the scenery.  I added lights and some platforms, and pipes (that aren't connected to anything) all around for filler.  For the lights I added a red hue to make it look more evil (for Fromsoysauce) and only the front two are casting shadows to avoid too much work for the renderer.  I should probably add a few valves here and there on the filler pipes.

Hmm, yeah, that definitely does look scarier.  Maybe some really short spines as a ridge going down the back?  Not too much though or it might start looking cluttered.

I think I'll try out 9.7 too. I've been using .95 since I discovered Anim8or.

Wow! I really like this one!  If you want it to be demonic, maybe try using even darker colors and maybe make the eyes smaller since the bigger the eyes, the more you get a 'cute' effect.
