HELLO (INTRODUCTION )
« on: January 31, 2009, 03:05:43 pm »

Hello I just like to introduce myself to the group.  My name is Susan and I just joined this group. My intrest in  Anim8or is a simple one. I like it because it is free for one thing and I wish to learn how to make animated baby clothing for the mill baby models. You really don't find hardly any thing for this model at all. I am very new when it comes to doing this so please dont get upset if I ask alot of question in this group. My first thing I wish to learn is how to make an animated  or working model od a simple baby diaper to put on mill baby model and how to do the movements when it comes to puting the model on the baby model. I relize alot of you guys may have no intrest in this but I am sure there are other females that might have a  intrest in this .  I just want to make some cute scenes of mother & baby bonding closeness stuff.

Take Care

Dear Susan,

Hello and welcome to the group! We are very happy to get new members and love seeing their work for critiques or to be simply amazed with the quality and originality. Never be afraid to ask questions or seek help in a difficult task. We are all here to help and remember even the so called "experts" need help from time to time. Anyway, we are pleased to meet you and hope you have a fun filled time learning the program and 3D in general.

PS. Don't ever be afraid to post something as you think it's too "girlish", we all are artists,  race and gender has nothing to with art. Remember that. :)

Hey Susan, welcome, and don't worry, what Suppastar said is correct, it's only about the art.

Hi Susan, welcome to the Anim8or community.  You'll find pretty much everybody here is happy to help you with whatever questions you have or problems you come up against, but keep in mind that this forum does not move very quickly (we prefer to spend our computer time Anim8ing!) so please be patient.  A couple of tips as well:

1) Acquaint yourself with the PDF manual, third link from the top at the left of this window.  For those just starting with Anim8or it is your best friend.  Have it open as a reference while you work, it has the answers to most of the questions you are likely to have.

2) Have a read through this forum.  In all likelihood somebody else has come up against the same hurdle, and had their questions answered in a forum thread.

3) EXPERIMENT!  Second only to the manual, experimentation is the best way to get a good understanding of the peculiarities of Anim8or (I mean that in the best possible way Steve!).

4) Google for tutorials.  Many previous and current Anim8ors have dedicated hours of their time to recording lessons that can teach you everything from the basics through to complex modelling and rigging concepts.  Some excellent tutorials are available on this site, but there are many others scattered across the web. (Note: Tutorials not specifically written for Anim8or may still be worth reading.  In many cases the basic concepts are the same or similar, and workarounds can be devised to convert them to the Anim8or way of doing things.)

5) Post in the forums, here and on other Anim8or friendly sites.  AnimAnon and CG-Nation (links at lower left) have excellent forums for the novice and accomplished alike (though I would recomment AnimAnon more because I am an admin there and I am totally biased!!).  These sites run regular fun events like team projects and contests of various types, all of which can rapidly improve your skills while working with other animators of all experience levels.

I hope you enjoy using Anim8or and I hope it allows you to create the images in your mind.  I can honestly say that I have never seen an animation of a baby's diaper among all the guns, knives, aliens and spaceships here, but it would be a nice change!
