  1. Hi Folks Just got home from work, have been thinking about this all day and think I have an idea about it. 1st I did the above on my iMac with AM v15. at lunch I work on my laptop PC AM v15 and I have found that of the 3 different animations I have done I used a photo, or, as above a video clip, as a rotoscope. Today I did just a simple one with Thom and no rotoscope and it worked fine. So my thoughts are that the Choro. window is a bigger size than a photo or a video clip, and as such it renders all the outside stuff in the choro. as a mess. So is it possible to adjust the
  2. Me again, sorry. I worked on this all day yesterday, changed settings, did every thing I could think of, even Reset AM to defaults. I just cant figure out why my rendering looks like this. Any Ideas? This is what my finished animations look like or just Black. After it finished then AM crashes. Have to go to work now just to clear my head. LOL Wally
  3. That was just to kool, loved it Great job
  4. Maybe they mean to have a rig with poses to use with several different models, I would love that myself. Example: My 1st model is all rigged and posed, My second model is a smaller version of the first made as a female and would like to be able to use the same rig and posses for each???? Working on it now.
  5. I think you should write new manual for AM, you make is so much simpler to understand. Hey thats an idea several of you experts should do a video manual. Whoo! that would be great. Just kiddin, But on a more serious note, if not for all the video tuts. from you and many others I would not have gotten as far as I have now, I do appreciate and thank you ALL for all the time and effort you have put into helping others.
  6. Thanks 'mtpeak2' that was the problem. I have been looking and looking at everything, didn't think of that. I tend to get a bit brain dead, and frustrated when something little like this comes up. Guess it's the old guy mental block. LOL Thanks to all of you for looking and helping. I sure do love this forum. You are all great.
  7. Ok I tried that hope it works. Thanks Nevik11.prj
  8. I must be doing something wrong that my prj. and model files are both sent as text files, sorry.
  9. Thanks for the quick response. Here is a shot of the bones and control bones. model also I have gone through and checked attachment and they seem to be correct. But I am still a bit cloudy as to what should be attached and not and if Lock IK should be ON or not. Nevik11.mdl
  10. Ok folks Heres one I hope you all can help me solve. I have rigged my dude, go to action to make sure all is working well, which all does seem to be fine except,,,, when I move control hand down it seems to keep going further than it should and it stretches the fingers all out of shape. OUCHHHHHH I have attached the proj. files with this if anyone can figure out what I did wrong this time. Thanks Wally Nevik11.prj
  11. Dude, That was just way to cool! Would love to know how you got the real ball and models together. Some like me are not right bright on how to do it yet. Any way great job.
  12. Ok folks, heres one. Do any of you know if there is a post or tut on how to transport (dematerialize) model A then re-materialize as a different model? A friend has a logo starts as a silhouette of a person, starts to break apart and dematerializes. We would like to have it re-materialize as text for his company. Any suggestions?
  13. Hi robcat, me again I was wondering about creating a blink for my character, I watched your movie with bones. Could a blink be done as an action? If so, how??? Or using the bones as you did could I use 1, 2 bones or do I need more bones. Do I use orient like constraints? or Could it be done easier with a maybe a pose slider?
  14. Thanks All, So this will be the last time I try it. So here's another question concernig Rigging How do all you guys rig? Do you use the 2001 rig or the TSM2 or one bone at a time your own way? What would be easiest and or the best way to go?
  15. Hi Everyone New question about Anzovin TSM plugin. Im using a Mac and AM ver. 15 (subscription) I downloaded and placed the files in the correct location and when i start AM I get the following error. Instructions say AM can only use 6 files in the HXT folder (but there are a lot more than 6 there) Is anyone else able to use this plugin and if so how did you get it to work?
  16. Hi heyvern Just tested you idea and it did work with being able to see from all angles yet when I imported a model it disappeared again, only the model was visible. But will work on it more this evening, time to head to work. WORK sucks!!! Hate leaving this to go earn money, Been trying to get them to just send a check to me without working, they just don't get it, what's the matter with these people???????
  17. Does the mention of the rotoscop actually disappear from teh PWS? No, it is still there but in the chor. window (image3) the image disappears so I can't see what or where i am working. Right clicked and went to views and tried all views but the images stays gone. I am sure there is some option to turn on or off like 'Front Projection Target' or maybe create a 'new layer' ?? My thoughts are to have the video images as a background and have my char. models in front with the appearance of being in the video. But my thoughts and real application don't always work well together.
  18. Hi Gang, Been working on this mess myself and this is as far as I can get. I use a mac also and don't get the 'import option either' but if you select the first image as you all have said it will import the entire sequence. Image 1 (into Images) Image 2: then I drag it into the 'shortcut to camera 1' and bingo there it is and it plays if you try it in the timeline. Now my problem is when you intentionally or accidently change the view it is gone and I am unable to get it back so I can work with it. If memory serves (my old self) right 'robcat' did a blue screen thing with video and pl

  20. Thanks for the fast answer Rodney, I tried to copy/paste and that just made more of a mess, half of the CPs did not show up , splines missing. so then I just deleted half of the dress and did the COPY/FLIP/ATTACH again and that worked. So in a way it did help. Over the years I have learned that I tend to over complicate a problem when the simplest solution is usually the right one, (or fix) Thanks
  21. Greetings all, Well I have a new situation and not sure how to fix it (if it can be) without having to start all over again. I had modeled 1/2 of my ladies dress and then was going to COPY/FLIP/ATTACH but (not paying attention of course) I hit SNAP TO MIRRORED POINTS which at some point later looked right. So now my main seem down the middle won't move, when I HIDE her to just see the dress you see what i get. Close the model and reopen I get this Repair message and haven't got a clue. Any ideas folks????
  22. Thanks robcat2075 You always seem to come through in a pinch, I appreciate all the help you have given.
  23. Hi All, My first flick. So tell me what you think and lots of advice, please. 1st.....................It is to fast, don't know how to slow it down??? 2nd....................The red strobe light stays on through the whole thing, needs to be off until frame 22, ON thru 27 then off again ( it is a bone and I can't figure out how to Aim At the holomap ) ??? 3rd....................The 3 colored lights inside should be flashing through the whole animation??? 4th....................I created a action for a spinning decal in the front circle but don't know how to get it in and working???
  24. Thanks guys, you've pulled me out of the pit once again!
