  1. Ok think I figured it out. Need to use the hot key in SnapzPro not the icon. Thanks for the suggestion Mark.
  2. When ever I try to make a screen capture with SnapzProX or QTX everything in AM disappears except the modeling window, no properties, tools or any other part. I am running Lion 10.7.3 on the Mac and AM 16.0a..... Any suggestions?
  3. That was just learning, got about 7 more seconds to the clip, probably will do some more. My animating is not to good but I learned a lot from this. Thanks for the comment
  4. Rob you always make the best Training videos.
  5. It was the lights. Or at least thats how I got what I needed. I added a second model and was able to get the original music of the clip with it. Thanks Danceing6.mov
  6. Well thanks to all the help and suggestions I figured out that it has to do with the lights. When you open the tracked project there are no lights like the regular Chor. So I had to place all the lights and settings. As I moved them to different locations and settings I was able to get the results better. I still see some distortion on the background but will deal with that later.
  7. Did you bring them ALL into the images folder? You only need to import the first one of the sequence, everything next will be there. In the Chor. the camera New Rotoscope and the imported image should show, select it and all the other frames should be there as well.
  8. This is a video (tga sequence) as rotoscope here are 2 shots one is unrendered the other is rendered, notice the one has transparent ground with a shadow from the rabbit, this is my objective. My settings are as follows: In Object folder: Ground: Options: FPT off FS off CR On CS off RS On SOnly off CO On In the Chor: Ground: Options FPT On FS On CR On CS Off RS On SOnly off CO On Been piddling with it and think I have hit on something, it has to do with the lights......Will post later when I get it figured out. Thanks to you all for the help.
  9. Rob to answer your question, yes. They are regular chors. with a tga. sequence as a rotoscope. 4x4 grid under model, transparent, and still shows shadow. The new project is tracked with PFHoe and opened, has a ground with it. Tried all the settings I could think of and even duplicated them from other projects but still does not become transparent or show the shadows. Then deleted the ground and used a grid primitive and still does not work like the other projects. Rodney I have used these settings, In my last attempt I got close but had different settings in the OBJECTS, model settings...than I did in the chor., settings. Attached is the Embeded prj. file which I hope I did right and you can open and have a look at. Dance_Corrected5_mov.prj
  10. Just got PFHoe and have tracked a clip. It opened fine in A:M and have been trying to get models and (shall I say) a floor into the chor. I finally have the model, but the ground that was created into the project does not respond the way it should. (transparent but will show shadows of the model) I have done other chors. where I put a grid under a model to create shadows, but with this new stuff I am having a hell of a time and wasting way to much time trying to figure it out. I just upgraded to LION on my Mac and am wondering if that could be the problem. I know some of you folks have used PFHoe before and hope you could point me to a tutorial or some other stuff on the importing into A:M. Would appreciate some suggestions.
  11. Is it possible to copy the settings from one of my older projects into a new project Have a new project where that was tracked in PFHoe and, I could not get the ground to have shadows on it. I imported a 4x4 grid that I used many times before but still can not get shadows. So I found one older proj. that does work, Thus my question. Can the Grid settings from the old Proj., or Chor., be imported to the new grid?
  12. you can also use 'MPEG Streamclip' http://www.squared5.com/
  13. I have done a few of these and 'detbear' has what I do QT Pro, save as tga. image seq. When you import your image sequence just click the first in the sequence and all the rest will go with it. then in your Chor. on the camera ....Import, Rotoscope and choose the file BAM There it is. At least that how it works for me. As for sound , I have no clue...never tried that yet!
  14. Nice job Jason, thank you.
  15. Thanks Rusty for the .zip I just took a quick look and I have been working on hair for a while now and see how you laid out the skull and that lets me know I am at least on the right track. I appreciate the help Have a great one, Wally (P.S. Saw your pics on FB, you have a beautiful family)
  16. Hi Rusty, The only difference I see from 1 and 2 is that 2 seems to a bit lighter, maybe more light in the highlights. I like it. But very curious about the hair settings, I like the touches of gray mixed in and the grooming over the ears and in the front. Nice job

    I use clothing over my models because I like the way it moves but it is very difficult to make it do what you want. I have been trying it as part of the model which is almost as difficult and it doesn't look satisfying to me but you know what ever works at the time.
  18. Thanks tanassi, Just got it and have been looking at it and see so many things that will help me with my models. Folks it is stuff like this, from more experienced people that will help us all see the things we need to do to get better. I have sit and worked on a simple pair of shorts for weeks, then suddenly it all clicks from previous problems, BAM there it is. All you folks here on this forum have helped me so much and I consider you all my friends. So a BIG THANK YOU to you all. As for the topic of this discussion, learn, study, practice, practice, practice. Looking and studying others tuff helps but you will not learn it unless you work at it. These are a couple of my latest projects, a long way to go but getting there.
