Hah.

Since both you and Tom seem to want something to commemorate the new release, and since it requires no real effort, I'll go ahead and make the challenge. Expect it to go up sometime today along with something else...

There hasn't been a challenge for sometime now. But while reading through an old dotAN8 magazine I saw that they did a "Robin Clone Competition". The idea was to make your own original version the Anim8or mascot. The ideas that were presented in the magazine were very original and I think it would be a great competition for members of all skill levels to compete in. I'm pretty sure almost everyone on this forum did the Robin tutorial somewhere along the line and therefore we all can relate.

Just an idea. Hope the challenges can be revived.

How is the latest challenge going? I have no time right now to try ASL. My two suggestions are, however:
1) make a video game scene
2) make a 2d animation in Anim8or!

I admit that i stop working in mine for some time now, because of change in my computer, and the next step will probably take a lot of time...[

As its going to be quiet for two months is there any interest in a mini challenge? Flexing ones muscles with the new features/abilities of anim8or.

I suppose it should feature use of the figure building improvements, maybe a facial rig animated with some expressions.
or something related to the new easy bones set up.
I didn't really have an idea before you asked just wanted to test the water to see if anyone was game.

Well, if a regular challenge is what we've been doing, then a mini challenge would have to be quite small, focused, and easy enough to do in one session without expecting a large time investment.

Steve's recent updates to Anim8or haven't necessarily been new features but rather enhancements to what's already there. Also, I figure he's only midway through these enhancements since he has yet to touch the sequence and scene editors. So it'd be hard to do anything practical in terms of focusing a challenge on these enhancements.

I'll post a simple mini challenge and see if there's enough participation to do more.

.. Bring back the challenges?

:) I was looking through old stuff and had a hankering to get a "reason" for doing more animation.
I feel like it could be cool to do a, for example, "model a wet object" competition. Maybe it'd be a fish, maybe a cold one. But either way, it'd depend heavily on texturing and/or post-production skills.

just an idea!

How about something that uses IK? (Now that it's working at a basic level at least ) Walking, dancing, animals running.
