  1. Thanks Simon! That's exactly the workaround I couldn't remember. However importing a .tga worked fine.
  2. A little late to the party, but happy birthday!
  3. I'm glad to hear he's been improving. Thanks for the news.
  4. that is very tough news to hear. I hope through hard work, smart doctors and luck that this is resolved for the better for Gene. Please keep us posted on his progress and if you speak with him again please tell him we are all pulling for him.

    Hi all

    Hi Tom, nice to see you here!
  6. At the time I attempted to post an image of the "broken" icon I see when I try to view videos on this forum. However I don't get the "Flash player not installed" error message or the like. I've never seen the icon anywhere else, it's a triangle in a circle, with a diagonal bar across it. I've always just assumed it was because of some video conversion going on in the background, and Flash is usually the culprit on the iPad. I'll try to dig up that thread.
  7. I was able to get a screen grab but I can't upload from here, and for some reason when I try to email it to myself to upload from the desktop, it just sits in my outbox. I 've tried it about five times already and nothing. I'll try again later.
  8. Well dang Mark, that's one handy key combo! Yep rodney, it appears I can get a screen grab. Will try that now. But the failure of uploaded videos to play is something I mentioned like three years ago when I first got my iPad. The forum software converts everthing to a flash file format for some reason.
  9. I'm curious whether you've had a chance to see it on an iPad, Rodney. I think it's fine in regular browsers. If it's any consolation, Facebook is total crap on the iPad.
  10. Forum pages are once again pushed to the left, apparently because of the width of the scrolling image strip at the top? The same problem came and went when Rodney was tweaking the redesign, and it's back now, just fyi.
  11. Another very nice tut, Robert. I haven't looked at visping's model, but my comment is that I don't think you can set up a constraint like this in a model, it would have to be done in an action or chor. I wonder if that's the problem here.
  12. Thanks folks. It's working, it just isn't looking as much like a reflection as I'd like. I'm messing with the settings but with everything else going on in this piece it may not matter too much. I'll try to post some images tomorrow.
  13. Using an environment map in v 17 and it looks like a color decal instead of reflections. I can't tell if I'm missing a step but I recall it was pretty straightforward. Is there an additional *something* I need to do to get the reflective quality?
  14. Well the experts have spoken! Maybe I'm thinking of trying TSM on the Mac, but that would be like a year or so ago. I've sworn by it for rigging for years now, to the point where I was maybe too dependent on it. but I tried the squetch rig and the install was pretty easy so I was happy with it. Be advised that I'm depending solely on my memory!
  15. Mark, I believe the Setup Machine no longer works with the current version of AM. It did up to maybe v15 or 16, but no more. I guess you could run it in an older version, but check further, I could be wrong as it's been awhile.
  16. Wow, nice tests! Sorry I missed the original thread back then. Excellent work.
  17. I feel like I *should* add something here since I've had experience with KS as well, but in truth I was really relieved when my KS failed because I was not eager to take time away from creating the project to think up, create and distribute the "rewards". In addition my project was not to become a finished, consumer-oriented thing but was just a sample animation to pitch my project to broadcasters, and given the experience I had at the Kidscreen conference, which was invaluable, the sample animation wouldn't have helped in the least. One of the questions I was asked at the conference, which really helped put my project in perspective, was whether I wanted to be an animator or a show creator. You can't realistically do both unless you're bound and determined to wear all the hats. Of course I wanted to be a show creator, in which case presenting sample animation is completely beside the point. It makes more sense to create a bible, character designs, a script and/or an animatic. Presenting animation that wasn't 110% broadcast quality turned out to be a big drawback.

    Trying to make something like this up in the modeling window is doing it the hard way! Definitely a roto, or at least a sketch.

    Hey Roger, do you have a sketch or something to indicate what you're going for?
  20. Welcome to the forum, Phaedrus! Best place to get your AM questions answered.
  21. I haven't even opened AM since January so I'm sure I'll have questions!
  22. Just announcing that I'll be doing the company Christmas animation (my eighth, yikes, this is the longest I've ever been at one job!) and as yet I have zero ideas, but I'm just starting, surely something will come up!
