    That's awesome Gerry. Congratulations and Good luck!
  2. I'm not sure the LiteRig is the best rig to install into a dragon. A dragon is more like a quadruped and the basic LiteRig is designed for humanoid type characters. Unfortunately, the only alternative that I'm aware of (aside from creating your own ) is the quadruped option in The Setup Machine. Good Luck and let us know how it goes.
  3. That's a great start Chris. Getting from a position sitting on the floor like that to a standing position is difficult to do. When I sit in that position and try to get up: I place my hand on the floor I rotate my hips toward the hand I continue rotating my hips until I am on my hands and knees I walk my hands back toward my body while standing until I can get my center of gravity over my hips. Then I stand up. Of course there are endless variations...

    I'm pretty sure everyone who has ever created an INSTALL rig has bumped up against this. All the rigs share a similar basic philosophy; the user adds the geometry bones and the installation process adds the control bones/constraints/relationships etc. The problem I ran into with the LiteRig is that I had to add a bunch of extra bones just so the install process could automatically place the control bones in the correct positions and add the constraints/relationships without user intervention. I believe anything which adds an "automation" layer to a manual process will complicate the resulting
  5. Whatever structure you work out for yourself will probably be the best one for you. A couple of things I've noticed during the few large projects I've worked on. * If I have several actors and many props, it is easier to find what I'm looking for if I have a separate "Actors" folder and "Props" folder. * Have a top level folder for Sets, and in each set's folder include only a "base model" which is specific to that set (can be an empty model) and an "assembly" Action (where you assemble the set). The assembly action will pull in models from the Props folder. *Even though
  6. This doesn't help you right now, but when you get back home, take a Sharpie and write the serial number on your AM disk. I can't count the number of times that simple act saved my bacon in the past.
  7. Not that I am aware of, but it is pretty easy to manually rotate those two sections how you want them. About half way through Emelio's fourth tutorial, "Modeling a Suspended Highway", he covers the "Keep Y Axis Parallel" option. Maybe that will help.
  8. Here are Emelio Le Roux's original Flash based tutorials on Sweeper. They are very good. (Emelio created the plugin). http://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=41179 For those who like to go at a slower pace. Here is a pdf tutorial I made. http://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=30336
  9. Next time you get a successful render, I wanna see a Screenshot of the Render Panel!
  10. The only two that seem really useful are "Wife's Birthday" and "Your Fly is Open".
  11. I don't think that would be possible. You can assign one CP to several groups, so what happens to the CP when you show some of those groups and hide some of the other ones?

    I think it is the Soft Reflections that are killing your render times. You might try using a blurred environment/reflection map on the sax to see if that gives you something acceptable, but the soft reflections do look really nice.
  13. This might have something to do with the fact that A:M does it's internal calculations in centimeters. 37.5 cm = 14.8 inches. So the model was just converted to centimeters when A:M exported it.
  14. Post Extrapolation was available since v9 or v10 I think.
  15. After learning those other products and realizing that something is hard, *not* because you don't know how to do it, but because the interface is a clunky prehistoric mess, you're going to beg your professors to allow you to use A:M.
