How to post an exercise?


Recommended Posts

I can not figure out how to post my exercises to the forum.

 

That's why we are here. :)

 

Assuming you are starting with Exercise 1 you will need to find a format to render to that the forum accepts.

Several format will work but I recommend:

 

.PNG format for still images (you can use .JPG if you want as well)

.MOV image for movies (you'll want to adjust your compression setting or the filesize will be huge!)

 

Read ahead a little in the manual. Rendering is discussed in Exercise 2.

 

If you have any specific difficulties let us know but try to be specific.

Narrow down the possibilities for a little bit. ;)

Thanks Rodney.

That was a really non-descript question.

 

I can not figure out how to post my exercises to the forum.

In my mind I was asking once kk is rendered do I export or attach as an e-mail ?

Also how would I have put "I can not figure out how to post my exercises to the forum." in the highlighted quote box

in this message?

 

This is my first experence with a forum.

First things first... the quote thing.

Keep in mind there is almost alway more than one way to do the same thing.

There is a more direct way but this is what I do.

 

I select the portion of text that I want to quote from the author's post.

- Hit Control C on my keyboard which copies the text into the clipboard

- Launch a reply via the Reply button at the bottom of the post

- Hit Control V to paste the text into my post

- Select the text again

- Hit the Quote buttom to add the Quote tags around the text (its the icon that look like a word balloon).

- Enter more words/text/questions

- Hit the Submit button

 

That's it.

Do that a few thousand times and you'll get the hang of it. ;)

 

 

"I can not figure out how to post my exercises to the forum."

 

Again... I assume you want to upload your image from the exercise here.

Since its kk (keekat)... that seems to validate you are in Exercise 1.

 

You've got two options:

1) Render your image

2) Screen capture your image

 

Learn how to do both! :)

 

 

In A:M follow the proceedures in Exercise 2/Exercise 3 to render out your image.

Make sure you render to an image format that is webpage friendly such as .JPG or .PNG.

In the same area where you type your message to me you'll find a Browse button. (Look for it on the right of your screen)

Browse to the location of your image file and select it.

*Important step people forget* Hit the UPLOAD button to upload your image as an attachment.

Submit your Post

 

Smile and press on or frown and try again. ;)

 

 

Assuming you are on a PC... for screen capturing the image that is currently on your screen try this:

 

Look on your keyboard for the Print Screen key (its usually above the Insert and Delete keys and has Prt Scr on it)

Hit that key

Go into any program that will accept image being pasted into it (Microsoft Word, Windows Paint... lots of programs will do this).

Paste the image into the program by either hitting the Control and V keys at the same time or... going to Edit/Paste on the Toolbar Menu.

You should see the image of your screen paste into the program.

Save that image (preferrably as a .JPG image - PNG if the program supports it)

Follow the procedures I outlined above for uploading image to the forum.

 

Good luck!

 

P.S. For everyone like you that asks these questions there are 10 more people who say to themselves "I sure am glad he asked that question!" They were just to shy to ask. ;)

The most important thing I learned in the usmc long ago was The dumest question asked is the question not asked.

1 quote down and a bunch more to go.

 

Yes I am on a pc and on exercise one.

 

I purchased the cd v15b.

 

Can the cd be installed on my computer so that I don't have to have it in d drive?

 

I have been geting and error message #001 unhandled exception am will close.

I have installed and uninstalled it several times. I did send in a report last night.?

No. That's the copy protection. The CD needs to be in when you start A:M. Once A:M is running you can take it out. I have two CD drives so I leave it in.

 

Definitely download and install the v15e version from the update page

Thanks Robert for the help.

How long have you been in Big D?

I know he did not just call Robert fat.

Robert... you don't have to take that!

 

One of the first models you want to grab besides the ones used in TaoA:M is the new Thom.

You'll note more than just hands differentiate him from his older brother with the same name.

Mark Skodecek has equipped him with the 2008 Rig which makes him a real joy to animate.

 

You won't find a Dynamic Pose like Keekat's in Exercise 1 but those dynamic poses are in there.

You can make them! :)

Open up his Properties in the Project Workspace and see what makes him tick.

 

So, by way of downloading a model, here is your initial introduction to the A:M file format as well.

Model files are text files with the .MDL extension.

How phat is that?
