  1. my library in an is missing characters is there a way  to restore the library 

    1. Rodney


      Hi John,

      Probably the easiest and quickest way is to reinstall A:M... which will just refresh the old installation.

      Alternatively, a copy of the library can be copied over the old library.

      (Most of us have a previous installation where the library will reside and I will guess you do also).

      thanks I reinstalled  after I asked now complete ...but a few pages duplicate but thats better then not being there

      now just waiting for new license from Jason

  2. Very nice Madfox! (Thanks for the conversion to gif John!)
  3. Gene was a force to be contended with. He'd take on an animation task and plus it up 20 fold. Never to shy away from doing the hard stuff he would just dive in and do it. I've been missing Gene's presence for a long time but now that feels a bit too official.
  4. I read an article the other day about 'crowd noise' being used in the sports arenas that are empty due to Covid19. It's like a modern day upgrade to the 'laugh track'.
  5. in this next episode we highlight that elusively strange 'noise' dubbed the laugh track... One thing the laugh track does successfully is let the audience know that it's okay to laugh. Without knowing much more I'd say the laugh track is a carry over from the days of radio but there is quite a rich history even beyond that. I do find it interesting that even without imagery the scene is set for humor as opposed to drama, intrigue or more serious considerations. This implies that acting and pantomime plays into the scene and we might expect the unexpected to be on display as
  6. For no apparently good reason... I've always thought the audio file from TaoA:M needed a longer pause before the 'punchline' delivery. Today I added it (and some noise) to keep the pause from sounding out of place. (wav file attached below) The whole idea of the timing of dialogue delivery is a fascinating one. This bit of dialogue follows the basic pattern of such things as joke telling that is storytelling in simple form; three acts... for four if you are counting the spaces inbetween the keys. What is Keekat's secret? What can't anyone seem to k
  7. Note down at the bottom of the Property Info window there is an Edit button. With that we can add documentation notes to personalize the Property Info. Be aware that this Property Info data (even if edited) is contained in a file named AMAindex.txt in the root A:M installation directory. That file will be overwritten with the default AMAindex.txt upon a new install so if personalized make sure you have a backup of the file before the next installation. This can be useful even if just adding a note of personal preferences for a specific property, to ask a question tha
  8. We don't see it quite as often but in the past there were a lot of folks brought up using A:M that could be occasionally seen with A:M on their monitors in places as diverse as Disney, ILM, etc. This due to the fact that while they tended to work in other applications required by the production they worked out many initial problems by using what they knew best; Animation:Master. From time to time we still see posts from people working at these studios post... for example, to prototype some of the large animatronics used in the Disney parade (think Maleficent as a huge fire breathing dragon!)
  9. I definitely recognize those cats. I'm pretty sure they made it on to the Extras CD and are very likely the work of Alain Descrochers.
  10. John, I had to download a codec in order to view the video. This might be problematic if shared with others that don't have that codec. Cute bird!
  11. Free... if willing to build from source. Nominal fee for current builds to fund development (available via gumroad). General use: Drag/drop obj into viewport. Paint. https://armorpaint.org/index.html Online manual: https://armorpaint.org/manual.html On Windows the application is portable (no installation required) and approx. 10MB Also runs on Linux, Mac and iPad. Even if only used to create decals via proxy model the application might allow A:M users a pipeline to use PBR materials; generating the various texture maps/decals re
  12. Because Robert's test deserves to be seen easily... Here it is as a gif animation:
