Anim8or Challenges / Re: Challenge suggestions.
« on: August 01, 2020, 07:10:37 pm »
... so I was thinking of doing a "season" or "mini series" or maybe an anthology series to pass the time. I still playing around with the "Some Guy in Space," and itching to get some vocal talent to do some voice over work. Maybe collaborate with other Anim8or enthusiasts to make the series or whatever better.

must admit, i find 'Some Guy' has a certain air of mystery about it, and i've been kinda wishing it had a bit of dialogue to help explain why he's doing what he's doing.

personally, i started off making things with no dialogue (mostly because i had no clue how to write, perform or record it to be honest!), but i've gradually got the hang of it over the years.  i sometimes find a certain project works fine without any, but on the whole it's a very useful tool.

but i can say from experience that it's a challenging but also very rewarding process putting together an episodic series.  if you want to give it a shot then let us know what aspects you'd like a hand with, and i'd be happy to chip in if any of my skillset is relevant :)

are we talking Object mode or Scene mode here?

i don't know if this is what's caused the issue in your case, but i remember seeing this behaviour in Object mode after using the Join Solids command.  iirc that command converts all of the point coordinates in the new combined solid to be based on the world origin.

that's a highly technical-looking thingumajig, that is.  no idea what it does, but i'm sure it's something important :D

i think this is by design, kevin, or at least it's been a known issue ever since ART was introduced.  it's not you missing anything, anyway.

lots of good work there, johnar.  i completely agree that phoneme identification is hard work, and i must admit i haven't made a serious attempt at it myself in years :P ...although i might have another stab at it now that steve's given us a shiny new tool for it!

if i might offer a spot of constructive criticism: one thing i've noticed from watching your character on a loop is that his top teeth are moving relative to his skull.  makes sense for the bottom teeth to do that, of course, but not so much the top ones, so it might be worth disconnecting those from the flexible mouth element and rigging them separately so they stay static.

dode1, no, the .gif format doesn't support audio.

just a thought... how about automatic foldering based on which figure a sequence applies to?  maybe as a togglable option.

for those agitating for multiple tracks... you could pre-compile your audio into one .wav file, using Audacity for example.  that way you could have as many different overlapping sounds as you want without needing multiple tracks within Anim8or.

i'd second that; Audacity is great for that sort of work.  check out the 'Effect > Equalisation...' option :)

i'll second that

found a bug in 1357: in point-edit mode, shift+move doesn't respect Grid Snap.  move without shift works fine, and everything's fine in the main Object/Edit mode.

very nice modelling, but i might have to report you to the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Keyboards :P

For anyone who's hanging around... what can we do to garner interest in Anim8or (and in the forums) again???

i'm tempted to say 'make a film'.  must admit i haven't made a CGI short in 10 years now, but i'd love to get back into it.

maybe in the interests of feasibility we should start by aiming for a very short video (30-60 sec or so) rather than a full-blown short film; something that could be put together fairly quickly to try and build momentum.

Finished Works and Works in Progress / spot the Anim8or bit...
« on: February 02, 2019, 06:19:09 am »
back in 2015, myself and a couple of friends shot an hour-long pilot for a live-action TV series called Unbelievers.  it's had a very long post-production process, and we spent a couple of years trying (without success, unfortunately) to get the full series commissioned by a broadcaster.

so we've decided to recut the pilot as a five-part miniseries and release it online instead.  the first 4 instalments are out now, and the last one will be released next Friday.

the on-topic part here is that there's a bit of Anim8or work in the title sequence - blended in with other elements created in GIMP, Krita and Vegas Pro.  the titles start about 1:12 into the first episode.  can you figure out which bits are .an8 and which bits aren't?
