  1. This year is already full of surprises, the first one being pointed out by Robert: my account is still active! And on top of that, I somehow remembered the password! Thanks to Robert for being willing to start this thread on my behalf. I hope that Animate a Face will still prove useful to the community!

    forum spam reports?

    I just got a similar PM from the same user.

    I've been getting into photography pretty heavily these days, and ran across mention of a little FREE app called Autostitch. The killer thing is that it has some definite potential applications for 3D work as well. Here's the super-short summary: Autostitch will take any number of source images and automatically blend them together into a single seamless panorama image. Want super-easy reflection maps? Just render a bunch of overlapping shots from the same camera position, throw them into Autostitch, and BOOM! The same thing can give you an easy way to take your 3D scene and create panorama images for use with QuicktimeVR. Even if it's not a full 360-degree image you're after, Autostitch will still do a great job. As a test, I took three 4-megapixel photos and ran them through it. Less than a minute later, I had the stitched result. Sure, it could look better if I had taken more photos, but what I did get was still pretty sweet. Until the creators sell off the technology to someone else for inclusion in a larger program, they're making Autostitch available for FREE! The only down-side is that it's Windows-only for now. Anyway, I hope this is useful. Cheers!

    Animate a Face

    Just a quick heads-up to those who were thinking about attending the animation demo I'm doing (mentioned in this thread). In addition to the "Animate a Face" CD set that will be given away as a door prize, I'll also have a small quantity with me to sell at a special meeting-only discount! The only way you can get this discount is to come to Saturday's meeting and buy the discs directly from me. Thanks to the fine folks at Anzovin Studio for making these available for the event!

    Animating Insect Man

    Hmmm...I'd done some tweaks on the rig from what the Eggington crew had originally made, but I never tested it post-tweak. I'll dig into it and see what I can do about fixing it...

    sound editing software

    Just to throw another option into the mix: Goldwave I've been using Goldwave for years. It's shareware, but well worth the price. Also check out the link on the Goldwave site to its sister app, Multiquence, which is a multi-track audio/video mixer, also shareware. Granted, it's not nearly as full-featured as something like Premiere, but it's great for the price.

    Animation Anzovin

    Michel, Quick tip: don't put spaces in file/folder names on a web site. It often leads to funky links.

    Opinions on the training videos

    Thanks for all the kind words on Animate a Face. I'm flattered that people like it so much. As for making more, I'm totally open to it, but I'll admit that I'm stumped when it comes to a concept. I'm open to suggestions, though. Jot me a line if you have an idea!

    World Series Sale

    There was a World Series recently? Seriously, I had no idea. I heard some side talk today about some big thing involving rioting fans, but had no idea what instigated the chaos. Oh well...that's what I get for totally ignoring all sports, I guess. It seems like I always find out about the World Series after it's over. Last year the revealing moment was even funnier because I was surrounded by others who didn't know much (if any) more than I did. My wife's parents were visiting, and we were playing a board game at our house, and suddenly there was a brief exchange that went something like this: Wife's dad: "Does anybody know who won the world series?" Me: "There was a world series recently?" Wife: "Who was playing?" At that point, we all realized the hopelessness of the conversation and broke into laughter.
