ASL Scripts / Facial Rigging
« on: February 23, 2011, 09:42:58 pm »
Recently I've started playing around with controller scripts. As a little side project I've been working on a way to get around anim8or's bone system, which I've always had some trouble with.
My solution so far is to come up with a way to use morph targets that can be controlled in real time without the need to input values into boxes. By using "controller objects"(the little green circles) I think I've managed it pretty well. The result so far is just a face rig along the lines of something i saw in a blender tutorial, but i hope to expand it to a full system soon.
Its a pretty simple system once the scripts are in place. By manipulating the "controller objects" (moving them if they have up/down points, scaling them if they have horizontal points) one can change the value of the morph target, thus changing the shape of the face.

The An8 files attached bellow for anyone who want to take a look, comments/suggestions/criticisms would be much appreciated.

A short video done for a school project. I'm glad to say i can post this under the finished works category. The video and poem were both created by myself, the poem is a found poem, based off page 131 of The Lord of The Flies. The music is Opening- by Linkin Park. Rendering was done with anm8ors ART renderer at 1200x675 without antialiasing and took about 12 hours give or take. the project itself took about 36 hours (not including rendering) spread out over 5 days to go from an idea to the finished product.

General Anim8or Forum / Cubemap Issue.
« on: July 30, 2010, 12:01:37 am »
Right, well there's already a topic for this issue but there was no real solution there, and its been dead for awhile, ( So I figured I would Post a new one.

For some reason or other animator can't find the cubemap textures, I've double checked the pathways, they're all correct, I've tried reloading the textures, nothing seems to work. also I've tried in both v0.97d and v0.95, the cubemaps don't work in either. I posted some screenshots of the problem and a render. If anyone has any ideas on this it would be much appreciated!

Finished Works and Works in Progress / Building a spartan (FINISHED)
« on: June 28, 2010, 03:36:35 pm »
Alright well I've been looking for a project for awhile, and a few days ago I found an old pic of a spartan wireframe from Halo CE, and that sparked the idea for this project.

It's got some proportion issues at the moment but I'm hoping to get those worked out and the model finished by the end of the week at latest.

EDIT: Thought i'd move some of the more recent project pics to the first post.

EDIT 2: I'm finally finished. You can watch it here >

Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to the whole anim8or community and to steve. Even though this project wasn't finished in anim8or, without it, it never would have been started at all! Thanks to everyone that gave me tips along the way and had interest in the project, you guys kept me motivated!

So i was board in art class, we were using clay, ended up making a little dude with a hat.
Got home, was still board, so i decided to start anim8ting the little clay guy, and this is what I've got so far.

« on: May 09, 2009, 11:15:14 pm »
I was playing around with the egg plant tutorial, and I thought, why not use some attributes.
So heres the result after a 3 hour render time.

EDIT: A few more glass renders to add.
