    If you ever wondered why "likes" disappeared from the forum... it was my fault. I figured they reduced actual commenting and thought that getting rid of the "like" button might encourage more responses to posts. I still figure that is true but since removing the option to "like" things didn't increase the commenting, we might as well have them back. Thanks to Rodney for trying my experiment and for undoing it as well! I wonder if anyone will like this post...

    Hi Guys, Was working on something for work last week and thought it would be fun to make the basic shapes in A:M even though it was eventually going to be worked on in zbrush/3dsmax. Been getting a kick out of spline modeling again so of course any excuse to play with A:M. my concept sketch and model

    The last three weeks has placed me in a funk that has been difficult to get out. WE are bombarded every day with bad news after bad news. In the last week I have decided that I will break out of this funk. One thing I have always done when I am down is to create something. Weather it is art work, models, model railroad, wood working items or even something with AM, it allows me to focus on what every I am doing and get away from all the news. We received some good news this week as our tests came back negative. Even though we have been sick the news lifted our spirits. I decided to create a character that has a "Jay Leno Chin". I wanted the character to be one that was once in good shape but has let himself go a little. One whose upper body was bigger than the larger for design style and the face is happy but that has some features that will allow for "large" facial expressions. I really wanted to concentrate on the shoulder area as I have always had issues on deformation. I decided to model the character with the arms extended down in the first position to see to rotation. Most of the character design wishes I had in my head are coming out. I still have a few things to tweak, but I am happy so far with the results. Anyway here is the New Guy

    Hi guys! Here's our new minishort clip. Corona related GREETINGS, stay safe. FYI: Everything was completely one in A:M, except for compositing (AE) and sound etiting (Samplitude).

    Let's start at the end of the train with the caboose. They went out of style in the 1980's but I still think they're the "right" away to finish off a line of railroad cars.

    Hi everybody.. since we are in the situation we are in I wanted to share with you a project of mine which I created with my 3d printer and Animation:Master. It is about a breathing mask which is reusable and is easy to clean while being comfortable. If you want to read more about the whole story or want to print your own, have a look at my blog article about it: https://www.patchwork3d.de/blog-5-en/breathing-mask-from-the-3d-printer-1034 Best regards, stay healthy and hope you are fine *Fuchur*

    Hi Guys, Recently upgraded to A:M v19 from V13 so was excited to try out some of the new features. (well... features I didn't have access to till now) Some SSS and Radiosity applied to an old model. Mike

    A core challenge for using any alternate renderer is that you will need to replace every A:M texture with something made in that alternate renderer. I'm currently learning C++ with an eye to knowing more about game engines but I have nothing to report as yet. Gerald Zum Gahr AKA Fuchur has some utilities in his signature for exporting A:M to game engines.

    Hi Guys, I'm happy to share an animation I've been working on the past few months, I'll try to make a long story short... Since all this Covid 19 stuff things have been different, previously most of my spare time was spent working on fine art projects a lot of work I did preparing for art shows was put on hold and like many people it's been a stressful time. I guess psychologically the best way I've been able to deal with it has been to tap into my silly side and rekindle some of the things that inspired me in my younger years. Using Animation Master was one of those things, it was the first app that got me seriously into 3D and actually helped land me my first job out of college. I made a friend on this forum over 20 years ago (Bud) Mike Lium, we eventually lost touch and reconnected on Facebook even though I wasn't using A:M much or posted 3d stuff he was always a friend... always encouraged me and my art. These past couple months while working on this animation I couldn't wait to surprise him with it. Sadly I didn't finish it in time, and found out he passed away a few weeks ago. So I dedicate this to Bud. Mike https://vimeo.com/417019628

    this is my way, 1. Use the Shear Tool and Perspective Tool in GIMP (or Photoshop) to adjust (projection) the Perspective view to Elevation view. 2. Export the modified image into a Rotoscope in the Model window in A: M and then create the model as normal. 3. You know the base dimension, scale Rotoscope to get the correct dimension. 4. Estimate the depth and height of model by adjusting the proportion in choreography. (please excuse me for grammar, I wrote in Thai and then "google translate") Model.zip Model.zip

    When boning a long tail or neck it seems intuitive to match the bone joint to the spline ring. However, you'll probably get a more natural deformation if the spline ring is in the middle of the bone. PRJ you can play with... TailTest01.prj The top is spline-ring-at-the-joint. The bottom is spline-ring-at-the-middle... Tail Bones800.mp4

    Posted elsewhere... Free for a limited time (as a response to the current Corona virus scare): https://creatureartteacher.com/product/fundamentals-of-animation/ Contents: In this comprehensive course, master animator Aaron Blaise (“The Lion King”, “Brother Bear”, “Mulan”) takes you through the key principles of animation. This course covers the “12 Principles of Animation” as originally pioneered by the original “9 Old Men” who worked directly under Walt Disney. This course includes 13 HD Video Tutorials covering: Squash & Stretch Timing Solid Drawing Anticipation Follow Through + Overlapping Action Arcs “Slow Ins” & “Slow Outs” Straight Ahead Animation Pose to Pose Animation Secondary Action Staging Exaggeration Appeal PLUS A full lesson on Biped (Two Legged) Walk cycle animation PLUS A full tutorial on Bipedal Run animation For anyone involved in animation there shouldn't be any surprises here BUT... if everyone has a copy of these lessons it will make a nice common reference.

    Just extremly well done! And as always not only the animation, lightening and so on is just extremly fun to watch but the whole pacing and style is amazing too. Thank you very much for sharing! Best regards *Fuchur* PS: And guys... #staytheFreakhome !

    @ all: Thanks so much guys. You know what? This was my first 'only A:M' project in a while. In quite a while. Whenever I come back to A:M, it's an eye-opener again and again in the 'jungle' of CG programs and applications. This was really a fun project! Greetz, Elm.

    Solved the problem! It has everything to do with the files names! I shortened all the files names and it worked fine! I don't know why the longer files names work on other PCs. All of my machines are Windows 10. Thanks for all your help in trying to sort this out Robert! CB

    One of these days we need to have a contest to come up with a set of high quality icons that fit a series of themes... created in Animation:Master of course. Fun Factoid: Each like (or other response) given to a post increases the original posters 'reputation points' by one point. Currently there are no icons/responses that give negative points.

    An Onion Skin toolbar has been added to A:M so that you don't have to return to the Options>Onion Skin panel whenever you need to change the most commonly used settings. To enable the Onion Skin Toolbar go to Tools>Customize>Toolbars and check "Onion Skin" The Toolbar has five controls Onion Skin Mode ON/OFF (default keyboard shortcut: SHIFT+5) Keyframe Mode ON/OFF. ON shows only onion skins at the time of keyframes of the currently selected object*&^. OFF shows onion skins in normal time increments (every frame if Step is set to 1) (a keyboard shortcut for this can be defined in Tools>Customize>Keyboard "Onion Toggle Mode") increase/decrease onion skins drawn Before current time. increase/decrease onion skins drawn After current time increase/decrease Step. Step is an increment between drawn onion skins. Larger numbers skip more frames before drawing another onion skin Like all toolbars, Onion Skin can be dragged to any convenient location. In this view, with Keyframe Mode ON, A:M draws one keyframed pose of the character before the current time and two keyframed poses after. (The model with the white wireframe lines is at the current time) With Keyframe Mode OFF Onion Skin draws in regular frame increments, observing the specified limits of one before and two after... In this view, Step has been increased to 4. A:M draws onion skins in 4-frame increments... Note that keyframe filters have an effect on what A:M regards as a keyframe for this purpose. If you had only the "Key Rotation" filter enabled while Onion skin was ON and in Keyframe Mode, it would only consider keyframes that contained Rotation keys for drawing onion skins and ignore any that had only Translation or Scaling keys.

    Hi guys and gals. I finished a couple of videos. I wish I had more time. Could easily spend hours on a few frames to get smoother animation. Other things I would like to do is change is my rig to one of the pre made AM ones. My rig feels to stiff. If I had more time I would learn more about AM particles and also add alot more texturing. I can fully understand why it takes hundreds of people to make animated movies. I want to make more of these videos when I have time and would appreciate any comments and suggestions to improve. Thanks

    Hello Forum- have not been here in awhile! Busy! A client recently inquired if I could perhaps make a SnapChat lens... he may as well of asked if I could have made diced clabberboards, because I had no idea what Snapchat... or a snapchat lens even WAS! My research taught me SnapChat has been around since 2011 and is a popular (amongst the young-uns) social media chat and photo-sharing software, much like Facebook. After downloading it to my phone and playing with it i realized it was resonsible for much of what I have seen on Facebook as far as kids with bear-noses and fuzzy ears, face- paint and sparkles that track with them of distort their face and voice for the length of a very short movie. I downloaded Lens Studio, a free software from Snapchat.com and discovered the wealth of possibilities I had unearthed, as far as 3D and Augmented reality... my client was thinking of using it in a somewhat commercial way- and light-bulbs kept flashing in my head... IDEAS...POSSIBILITIES! Within the week I have been learning Lens Studio they have now released V2 which goes even deeper into the realm of gameplay. My first inclination was... can I get my A:M content into this thing, and seeing that it only allows .FBX file format (A:M needs to add this FEATURE REQUEST!) I embarked on Gerald's (A:M user Fuchur) 'FBX Pipeline to Unity' tutorial - https://www.patchwork3d.de/html/page.php?page_id=64 and discovered that thru A:M's robust .X exporters and purchase of Ultimate Unwrap ($50) I am indeed able to pipe my 3D animations (keep 'em simple) into Lens Studio- and the process is NOT as painful as I pre-judged it to be. The debate is open as to whether Snapchat has seen it's better days- or needs to become part of Facebook or Twitter, or perhaps there is something better out there. I am wondering what the forum knows of this... is anyone else making Snapchat Lens's... does anyone even bother with Snapchat at all? Thoughts.

    I don't know either way, I had only just gotten Newton dynamics figured out then... POOF... out with Newton in with Bullet! I don't know enough about Bullet to know if the parameters are behaving like they should or if a bug report is due for something. I'm hoping someone will investigate Bullet more thoroughly than I have had a chance to do and report to us. Maybe that person can be you!
