  1. Rob, It's completely consistent and cookies are on. I don't need cookies to remember a password. Every time my password is rejected and I have to recover my password to login. Very strange. I've been into AE too much and need to get back to A:M. I'll have a look at your tutorials Rob. Cheers, Rusty Edit: I completely ditched the post ideas and started over.
  2. I don't visit here much as it's so hard to log in. No matter what I try I always have to go through the recover password. Anyway, I love a:m and use it often. My last post was pretty sorry so here's the prototype looking a little better. I'm thinking of redoing and recoloring the rocket exhaust and loosing the rings. Rusty Edit: Rendering this to a mov file clocked in at 670 Mb. After uploading it to YouTube and downloading the mp4 file it was at 8mb! I cannot duplicate YouTube's compression in mp4 no matter what I try (I'm no expert lol). TSS300.mp4
  3. I got what the tut offered and adjusted it a bit. You see it in the first scene of the attached prototype (which is nothing to write home about yet ;-( ). Test for SS ad.mp4
  4. Hi! Thanks john! What I was looking for is more like this. I tried this in AE but it doesn't look that good. Still working on it. Happy New Year Rusty
  5. Thanks Robcat! I'll have to play around with it. Rusty
  6. Hi! I know or think it’s possible to do a particle rocket flame in AM. Are there any tutorials or guides you can point me to? Thanks! Rusty
  7. I thought I answered this post long ago. My desktop is out and I guess my Yoga 9000 isn't quite up to the task. I've since updated the drivers and will dl this project and try again. Thanks for the help! Rusty
  8. Hi everyone! Does anyone know why I'm getting distortion when I render? jug.avi jug.prj
  9. I didn't get an activation code. Edit: Nevermind. I found it. r
  10. Hi, I hate to post this but emails to support@hash.com are getting kicked back as undeliverable. On Apr 8th I purchased a year’s subscription but don’t know how to activate it. My copy of A:M has now expired. What can I do? Rusty rusty@sd.znet.com
  11. Hi! Been enjoying playing with A:M again. However, ran into a stupid problem. I’m in the chor and I want to create a path to animate an object along and I can’t find the path tool!!?? I can picture the tool icon in my head…I’m I thinking of another program??!! Am I nuts? Confused, Rusty
  12. Rob your the best!!! I'll check these out. Rusty An ad for my scifi books I made in AM. ExplorerTwoAd.mp4
  13. Hi Rob! Yeah, I remember the plugin from long ago it was pretty cool. I'm sure I have it on my desktop but the disk went out. Probably wouldn't work anymore. Rig the legs? Yes and I don't remember how!! I've decided just to pose the beast not animate it.I need to grab the end of the bone chain and move the entire bone chain from there. Kinematic something??? Rusty
  14. Hi, I need to animate long tentacles waving like an Octopus under water. There use to be a plug-in to assist with this. Anyone remember what it was and if it’s still available? Thanks, Rusty
  15. Ah... nice! I always wanted to construct a galaxy using particle systems. Been working all night on social media marketing for my books...what a monster. Rather be in A:M. r
  16. Rob, I'm sure you could tell me how to do this in A:M too. Basketball0.mp4
  17. I can't seem to get it, have QT (not pro) but the upgrade link is broken??? r
  18. Rob, Here's what I came up with...it good enough for my blog post. Now if I just knew more about containers and codec. To get a good mp4 I have to upload avi to YouTube and then download it. I wish I knew what YouTube's settings were and how to convert to them. Rusty Basketball.mp4
  19. Rob, Your the best!! How is Hash doing? I have Maya, Softimage and Blender and still A:M is my work horse. It's just so much easier. Rusty
  20. Robert, Thank you for all the effort you put into that. Definitely new stuff to me. I writing a blog post on relativity and length contraction and I want to show a spinning basketball flattened in the direction of travel...if that makes sense. I'll spin the basketball in AM and flatten the animation in AE. Fun stuff. Thanks! Rusty
  21. There was a formula you could enter that kept it spinning or rotating. Any ideas? Rusty
  22. Hi, I know how to create the sphere, lol, but how do I make it spin evenly? A formula? Thanks for any help, Rusty PS: I use to know how to do this stuff, use it of lose it.
  23. Rob' Thanks for the kind words. And you know what, lol…I don’t remember how I did any of it! Time to roll up my sleeves. Know a good tutorial on hair? Rusty
  24. Hi! This model was created many years ago and originally the eyebrows were dark brown and not so long (before image…the head hair is left out of now image). Don’t get me wrong lol, …I kind of like the new look! Still, anyone know what the problem might be? Maybe something added to hair systems along the way or, when passing through decals hair now reacts somehow? I’ve not dealt with hair systems in years, lol…I had hoped never to deal with them again. ☹ Thanks, Rusty
