  1. That is awesome. Excellent.
  2. Thanks for doing this
  3. Here it is 10 days later and work has been full blown. In fact, I just stopped working about 1 hour ago. So i thought it was time to back with the new guy. Here is a shot of the render front and side. I have done some polishing of the mesh. and started rigging just a few minutes ago.
  4. The last three weeks has placed me in a funk that has been difficult to get out. WE are bombarded every day with bad news after bad news. In the last week I have decided that I will break out of this funk. One thing I have always done when I am down is to create something. Weather it is art work, models, model railroad, wood working items or even something with AM, it allows me to focus on what every I am doing and get away from all the news. We received some good news this week as our tests came back negative. Even though we have been sick the news lifted our spirits. I decided to create a character that has a "Jay Leno Chin". I wanted the character to be one that was once in good shape but has let himself go a little. One whose upper body was bigger than the larger for design style and the face is happy but that has some features that will allow for "large" facial expressions. I really wanted to concentrate on the shoulder area as I have always had issues on deformation. I decided to model the character with the arms extended down in the first position to see to rotation. Most of the character design wishes I had in my head are coming out. I still have a few things to tweak, but I am happy so far with the results. Anyway here is the New Guy
  5. I love the sparseness of the scene. The use of 1/3 screen of the the placement of the character is fabulous. The lighting is spot on. I did like the more orange shot you showed Tuesday. Great work
  6. In the technical manual, it states while in the chor, we can be looking through the camera view and hold down the shift or control key and move the mouse to change the camera view. Has this been disabled or is there something I am missing? Needless to say I can not get this to work Steve Edit Center mouse key plus either control or shift got it. Sorry
  7. Amd dropped support for Win 10 and the 5450. I believe the lowest gpu is the 6450 for support in win 10. I have a 6950 and the catalyst driver crashes. so I pulled the card and got a nvidia low end card. I know its a laptop so there is no pulling the gpu. Some folks found drivers by individual support groups. You might have to check there.
  8. Is there a way to copy a relationship from model to model?
  9. I have been wanting to get back to several ideas I have had. So yesterday I pulled up several character models created in ver 18 or 19. I am running the current version of AM and all the groomed hair was sticking straight up. Opened the model in 18 and it is fine. in version 19j1 the hair guides are groomed but the hair is sticking straight up. Also, all the maps either png or tga were no longer alpha channeled. I had several maps with color and bump maps. Has anyone else opened a previously created model with the hair issues?
  10. Merry Christmas to you!! Thank you for all you do!
  11. I have a question that I have just begun to notice. I have applied ver 19j and now each time I save a project I have a new set of folders for each save. Each save has several sub folder. The main folder is titled the name of the project and then a series of numbers that I could not decode. Under the folder there are usually two folders. The first is a capital letter such as E with a dash, so E-. Its contents are then followed with another folder with the name of the project and its folder has the project file. The second main folder under the top is labeled the name of the pc such as Steve-PC. Under its folder are several folders. one has a listing the the textures. One has a folder with all the decals, another has all the rotoscopes, another has maps, etc. Each save seems to vary with the content. As I load my project into AM it may take 3-5 minutes to load the file. I am wondering if I need to reinstall a earlier version. So my question to eveyone has anyone else noticed these folders as well? I thought it might be a problem with this machine but it is doing to my other copy of AM as well. Steve
  12. This is good news. I tried several times to watch the install videos. Thanks Mack!!

    Hey Steve try going to your profile on hash. Download am again. Get the key from your profile history and run the activation again. That will reset your license.
  14. I was able to go into am and tell it where all the folders were located. So as of yesterday I am good to go.
  15. I installed the j version and I get errors for installation as all the procedures, hxt and pathways can not be found once I run the program.
  16. Hi Paul It is said great minds think alike... well guess what I have a working caveman suit with hair driven by a decal much like you have shown. I would be willing to help if you are interested Steve
  17. Weird I had posted a response and do not see it sorry. I had to go into the Window's sound mixer while AM was loaded and made sure the AM connection was enabled and the sound was turned up.
  18. I encountered this a year or so ago. Chris / mouseman, helped me get the settings corrected. I will be talking with him tomorrow and I will see if he remembers what we did. I will be back.
  19. Hi David Awesome work. You accomplished what very few of us do, so congratulations! Thank you for sharing the videos. What Robert and Chris have said are wonderful ideas of animation insights, I looked at more of how to light and the technical side. Your models were nicely done. What rig did you use? What keeps me entertained when it comes to animation is the placement actors in the shots. Your shots were setup well and I enjoyed the camera movements. You might think of the rule of thirds in future animations and a little tighter in on the actors but overall great job. Lighting is tough for me. I like the softer look in animations. But what you completed was very impressive. Excellent work. I look forward to more animations from you. Great job on singing and the music!! Steve
  20. If you have time tomorrow I will be home tomorrow evening
