  2. As you can see, it's all based on my favorite Enhance_AM combiner; AM_Dirt. My only problem with it is the way the blend percentages work. I had assumed that if you wanted an equal distribution of six evenly distributed grey levels (0, 51, 102, 153, 204, 255) then the blends should be five bands with the same limiting percentages. A look at a histogram of the resulting material showed this wasn't true. So after some trial and error I found the blends shown that produced a reasonably even histogram and I use these consistently with colour choices that are subtly different so they combine well t

  3. Here's a proof of concept for animating the biases of a four Control Point lathe to have it morph from circle to square. In this case not directly moving into the shape but changing size and delaying the shape change a little. Project File attached as well. square2round.prj

  4. I'm a bit late to the party. It's great to see you @mulls! If it is an option I've found that leveraging patch images and then manipulating the splines to influence the shape of the image works quite well. Then the 'text' can be created either inside A:M or another program and then the splines... dangling splines often working best... can be manipulated to gain whatever curvature is needed... to include curvature created via lathing (as Fuchur describes). The image/text can then be updated easily to change font, style, color, etc. without concern for adjusting the path.

  5. The latest addition to my railroad needs long sheets of diamond pattern steel plate. I wanted these plates to look well used, slightly rusty and to have varying amounts of dried dirt on them. I wasn't looking forward to building the material because while it's relatively easy to build show-room new surface finishes, I had never been happy with any of my attempts at old steel and procedural dirt looked too much like soft edged clouds. I thought the only way I could get hard edged dirt would be a decal. However after much experimentation I've got a material that's more than adequate. At thi

  8. Back working with Dylan Perry, formerly of Momentum Animations, Now Perry Animations on some videos he's working on, thanks to Jason we got AM running again, tell you what after a brea from AM for so long it was refreshing to dive in again and relearn some things, hopefully I can now seriously get back into it again and pic up on some projects that have been sitting on the shelf for a while The old Mac pro that I had, turned it into my 3D rig, not too shabby for an almost vintage computer, runs windows and AM awesome

  9. The technical references are not, for me, didactic enough. I already understand English very poorly and I remember the manipulations in a very visual way. This is why I particularly like videos ! I do not think I am the only one in this case. This is why I propose to make these videos. Making the videos is a great way for me to learn how it works. Everyone benefits from it. As much me as the others ! That said, I want to base my approach on existing documents! The opposite would be a shame ! I prefer to just discuss it in community before so that the examples and illustrat

  11. 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

  12. Love that animation! I also saw your other work on your YT channel. Very nice work. I picked up some tips on using splines from your time-lapses as well.

  13. After several attempts to use bvh files on AM I seem to get the root of the error I experienced. I always used a model with a rig on them, but then got blocked by the fact that the account of bones in the bvh file does not correspond to the ones Animation Master uses. So to get rid of this error of attaching bones to the bvh, I just got the idea to use a boneless model, make the set up with an imported bvh file, and then attach the bones in the model window viewing in the action window if they confirm to the ones in the bvh file. As soon this is done in a global scale, it becomes matter t

  16. I can't seem to reproduce that crash. Could you give the steps you are doing to get it to crash? In the video you can see what I tried out. Best regards *Fuchur* plugin_cutplane_test.mp4

  20. For the reply of the question, what do I do when the subject is not a pose in the concerned way of a bone related object. I mean, when I just make a spline of two controlpoints and I move them on the grid. In that case does the Ease channel work? For the screenshots, well.., you have no idea how much I've made of them. I almost have a complete library Here are some of the monsters, as well as the conveybelt.

  21. Sorry but i do not agree... if you are an newbee and want to learn 3d do not go with blender. it is not as easy to learn not near as intuitive as A:M and it likly will never be... it has many features but it still is a thrown together piece of software... A:M may not have all the bells blender has (it has all the once needed though) but the workflow is much better thought through and feels like out of one piece while different tools in blender feel like one person did one and the next did another and everybody did it the way they liked it... that feels like that because it really is that way.
