sketch-based modeling and Anim8or
« on: September 14, 2022, 09:48:14 am »

Monster Mash is a new sketch-based modeling and animation tool that allows you to quickly
sketch a character and it inflates it into a 3D model, and promptly animate it.
You can export it as OBJ file format with a texture into anim8or.

These are some finished results that have been imported into anim8or.

I altered the image in phoxo (free 2d editing program) to iron out the stretch marks and added a black and white bump map. I also altered the material settings.


   

   

  Also you can add bones to the monster mash models.

I created this 3d dragon's head in Monstermash.zone, I then imported into anim8or and added a simple  bone system to animate it. ;D

Then using free apps on my smart phone I changed my face to roman style helmet with beard.
I then used another free app called Capcut to eliminate the background in my home.

Following this I imported my capcut film footage into shotcut (free software) and created a series of
pngs with a transparent background.

I then used a simple script to import the png's of myself into Anim8or.

Clever! But I think you should be threatening that firedrake with a toasting fork loaded with a crumpet!

All joking apart, great results!

Can you use Monster Mash to convert text in to a party balloon like title sequence?

Thank you Hindsight, monster mash works better with whole figures, it does not subtract inside of meshes so creating the letter O would be a problem?

Wow! Impressive tech. I remember playing around with something called "Teddy" many years ago that tried doing something similar, but very basic. I'll have to check this out
