    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...

    After reading the latest Martin's Minutes about "Charlie Brown Books" I remembered that I modeled a Snoopy vs Red Baron a few years back using Lightwave and was curious to try the Lightwave importer with A:M. After re examining the model I decided to model him from scratch in A:M. I just get a kick out of the elegance of spline patches vs subdivision modeling it seems like you can say more with less. Here is some progress of the model so far... still working on the hands and feet and will be modeling a scarf next.

    Hi Guys, Been experimenting with rendering some gem and glass like objects in A:M and decided to try my hand at rendering some quartz crystals. Have a few more things I'd like to add and experiment with in the scene so figure I'll keep adding here as a WIP when I get around to it. ( have to get back to my Snoopy post as well ) A few post tweaks were added in Photoshop like exposure and blurring.

    The first type of boxcar I built was the older style where the handbrake wheel is mounted horizontally above the roof line. In order to maximize the number of boxcars, I decided to cheat and put a different railroad line and specs on each side of a single car. This scheme only breaks down when looking at the end of a single car where you see the two different numbers. However once the two cars are connected together and their ends are somewhat obscured I now have two boxcars for the price of one model.

    Great comments on the rigging. Will have to go back and study it in more detail... ...but in the meantime here is what Rob taught me yesterday. I used 4 frame holds on the incremental increases in opacity to approximate the jerkiness of time lapse videos. timelapse.mp4

    Before I move on to the next railcar I beg your indulgence while I brag about getting a believable "look" to the rear running lights. The rear facing lenses are tinted red with the other three are tinted green. The light from the internal bulb is quasi collimated i.e. the lamps appear illuminated only if viewed close to on-axis with the lenses. I wheeled the caboose back into the dark factory to get a better view.

    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).

    This is turning out to be quite fun so far. For an upcoming scene , I need to make three police officer models. If any of you happen to have one handy, it would save quite a bit of time. Oh yes, in case you didn't recognize the old Arnie Head model, there it is Dinosaur.mp4 Stipid dinosaur.mp4

    Hi guys, I am currently spending (too much) time in VRChat (a software that is more like a multiplayer-game but meant to be used as a socialising platform to talk with other people and do stuff in a virtual world together with or without a VR headset). VRChat gives the possibility to upload own characters and worlds to the experience and so I had a look how that is done and brought my Animation:Master Plomper-Character as a fully functional avatar to that world. I might do a full blown video tutorial on it in future, but for now I just wrote a new blog article on the process. If you are interested, you can find it here: PW3d: VRChat – What is VRChat and how did I import my plumper model as a character? Hope you find it interesting and fun :). Best regards *Fuchur* PS: If you are wondering: That is a mirror infront of me in one of the worlds in which I am using my Mixed Reality Headset:

    AMD stock went up 8% to a new high today on the announcement of new chips https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2020/7/21/21331824/amd-7nm-ryzen-4000-desktop-chips-apu-processor-prebuilt-systems-intel https://www.fool.com/investing/2020/07/22/amd-targets-oem-market-with-new-ryzen-chips.aspx Not available for DIYers yet but I presume their previous top-of-the-line desktop will be reduced in price soon. An 8-core chip that runs up to 4.3GHz yet only produces 35 watts of heat? I remember going to a show where someone was demonstrating a PC that ran at ... 200MHz! The fan sounded like a vacuum cleaner running and the exhaust felt like a hair dryer set on "high".

    The next boxcar is the more modern style with the brake wheel mounted vertically to the end wall. Once again I used the same model but put different signage on other side. CPR with NYC, N&W with PRR. I got carried away with detailing when I found a good reference image of a vintage NYC waybill. I reproduced it in PSPro and filled in the blanks with Lorem Ipsum words.

    Cards go boom. Admittedly over-sized cards but they do uniformly go boom. Edit: I just realised that you wanted the individual particles in the shape of a heart/club etc and not the shape of a playing card. Sorry, ignore me, carry on. House of cards0.mp4

    Next up, a flat car. I've always felt one's interest in passing flat cars is proportional to the loads they're carrying, making an endless line of container cars extremely boring. Having said that, large steel pipes are pretty plain as well (but low in patch count). So I went a bit overboard on the material textures for the rusty steel and woven tie down straps.

    Update for anyone who might be interested (Nobody, I'm sure but I have nobody else to talk to about it). I bit the bullet and made the separate Windows 7 partition to see if the dedicated graphics chip was detected or if the drivers would install aaaaaaand...It wasn't. So it's either broken or simply isn't in there (I'm not taking the laptop apart to check). I'm leaning towards it never being there to start with and the laptop being mislabeled by the guy who refurbished it. It's listed as a TM2t-2200 which has an i3 and ATI/Intel HD switchable graphics. But I've found a model called a tm2-2057sb (small business) that just has the i3 and Intel HD graphics. This adds up as well as from what I've read the HDMI port doesn't work without dedicated graphics in windows 10 but it works fine on mine Ah well, now I know and

    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*

    I've been spending my lock-down time giving my steam locomotive something to pull. I'll use this topic to display all of my railroad cars as they're rolled out of the factory. Since showcasing my renders on a personal web site is so 20th century I've decided to make the plunge to Instagram. But the phone-size 1080x608 limit is a bit small for my taste so I'll be putting up the hi-res versions here.

    Attached are the pictures of six different discs I have acquired over the years. I did not know if anyone wanted them for posterity, if nothing else. Each is kind of a snapshot-in-time and a walk-down-memory-lane, depending on how long you have been around. I am not asking much, if anything beyond shipping. They should not be above $7 to ship if you are in the U.S. If there is any interest, email me at fdputhuff@gmail.com Thumper

    Hi all, while cleaning the attic I stumbled upon these gems. And a manual was actually that...a manual (661 pages!) Right now I'm on a quest to find videotape vol 1. I assume it's about modelling, probably the one I watched most, so hopefully it's not somewhere in a videoplayer at the dump. :-) Last time I used AM was in 2003 or so, but great to see it's still alive and kicking. I can only say it was my way into modelling and animation! Maybe I'll download the trial later today. Cheers and stay safe! Edwin

    This is the first few seconds of a scene Chris @mouseman is animating. Character modeled by Steve @Shelton. The cloth simulation takes up to 6400 sub-steps per frame but it does survive the motion now. Hail000.mov

    A hint in the right direction but I am sure Robert will talk about it in the Live-Session: Gradient-Material (Transparent to Color) with a animated transform setting of the gradient.

    @ 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

    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
