  1. Fuchur, I went to the site and it up and running!! I started to watch the video turial but realized I better get some sleep for work in the morning but I'll be watching it tomorrow. Thanks again. George
  2. WOW!!! Robert, This is an incredible amount of work. You are an Animation Master Guru and a Great animation teacher. I've learned so much from your videos and it was fun working under your tutelage on TWO. Thank you for compiling this in one post. George
  3. That is a known bug with a workaround... something like CMD + Q or CMD + C if I am not wrong. Anyway: Since Apple has changed much with the Maverik-Update, it is a little bit unknown what will happen in the future. If they leave many libraries behind (like they did with Maverick) it may become very hard to get A:M to work on the Mac any longer on OS 11.0 and above. The Windows-version is however working much better. See you *Fuchur* Fuchur, I'm trying to import an A:M model into Unity. All I can import is the mesh. I saw your link and was very excited until I clicked on it and it seems to be a broken link. Would you please attach the FBX converter? there is no fbx exporter. please go to patchwork3d.de and than click on tutorial > video tutorials to open my website. edit: just saw that my website has a problem. i will fix it when i am back home. see u *fuchur* Awesome! Thank you very much.

  5. This is fantastic work!! I love the props and characters!!
  6. I edited my reply post to correct the path I put. Next time I'll just repost to avoid this confusion. Sorry. The choreography is in the Path1 location.
  7. In the shortcut to table, under actions, there's a choreography action2 that is suppose to transition the walk to a stop. It should be there. I just downloaded the project from the site to test it and it's in mine. Thanks for the help. [edit] Sorry it's under the path1. path1, actions, Choreography Action2
  8. Hi all, I created a simple table that I made an action for that does a basic walk cycle on a path. I also created a choreography action that transitions the walk to a stop. It worked great last night but for some reason it doesn't appear to be working now. Would someone please take a look at the project (I'm using V15.0i) and see what I'm doing wrong? I'm sure it's something simple that I'm just not seeing. Thanks, George table_walk.prj
  9. It's looking real good. The thing that stood out to me was the hand pound on the knee. It needs an "ease in" to the up pose and a little ease out to the return pose. It looks too mechanical right now. You might want to consider adding a little bend at the wrist with a little follow through as the hand hits the knee. It would add flexibility and look better. Also adding a slight ark (as you probably know) to the motion will really loosen it up too. Keep up the good work! George
  10. Looks good! I liked the shift from shaded to cartoon. I also liked how you captured the emotions. George
  11. I think it looks great Darkwing. quick question about your rendering. Are you rendering your whole project in one shot? If so, you can actually speed your process up quite a bit if you rendered out as TGA's using several instances of A:M and assemble your shots in a video editing program like Vegas or A:M can do it too. If you have a single frame that takes 4 minutes to render and say your rendering is going to take you about 7 hours then you're planning on rendering approximately 105 frames. OK, so if you render the whole project in one render, it takes 7 hours but if you break it up and render to TGA's in sets of frames with instances of A:M all running simultaneously, then you cut your render time down substantially. 105 frames - 4 mins per frame - one render = 7 hours 105 frames - 4 mins per frame - render 5 frames using 25 A:M instances simultaneously = 25 mins Make sure to render your shots with sequential numbers (I.E space0 for 1st instance of 5 frames, space6 for 2nd, etc) The only limitation would be your computer. You need a good processor with ample memory and a good video card to run this many instances. But you could still cut your time using less instances. 105 frames - 4 instances - 1 hour and 45 minutes (much faster than 7 hours). You'd then assemble your frames and add your sound in your editing program and render your finished work. You can also do it in A:M but I'm not sure how long it would take to do the final render. I'd think though that because all you'd be rendering would be a layer sequence, lighting and added sound, that it would take less time than the total 7 hours. Here's a way you could do it in A:M: After you have rendered all your shots to TGA's, open a new project (make sure to save your existing project) import your TGA shots as sequential images. open a new choreograpy. Delete the rim and the ground plane. create a new layer using the 1st image (I.E space0) adjust the camera so it has no angle and adjust the layer so it is slightly outside the camera's field do a quick render test to determine if you need to adjust the lighting Import your sounds and position them Do final render George
  12. That looks awesome!!! I like the character and the expressions and the lighting and feel is perfect!! Great work! George
  13. Ken, That train looks incredible. Thank you for sharing such an awesomely done model. George
