"Live Answer Time" Saturdays Noon CST

Recommended Posts



On Saturdays from Noon to 1PM Central time I will be available on Google Hangout and attempt to answer/solve/demonstrate any A:M question you may have.


1PM-2PM Eastern time
12 Noon to 1PM Central time
11AM-12 Noon Mountain time
10AM-11AM Pacific time

6PM Saturday Greenwich Mean Time (while US is on Cold Dark Wintry Standard Time)

You will need your Google account and a microphone. You don't need a camera, I don't have one either but we can show each other what we are doing with screen sharing.


To access the Google Hangout, click on this link. You may need to load or enable a Google hangout plugin. It may work better for you in Chrome.

https://hangouts.google.com/call/cV_AN2YYtHmerYqal5ptAAEE

If possible, please add an avatar image to your Google account so you may appear as something other than a generic icon.

I will attempt to record these Hangouts for posterity.

I hope folks will take advantage of this opportunity to have Robert answer A:M related questions live.

Sadly, I don't think I'll be online at that time but just in case need to dust off Skype and make sure it's operational.

I hope some folks will use OBS or other screen capture software to record some or all of the session.

 

Oh, and as a reminder... Satuday is today!

Robcat,

 

 

Sorry I missed your Skype chat. Is this going to be a weekly thing?

Weekly, until it isn't.

 

However, Answer time will return on Saturday the 19th.

 

Of course you can always ask questions here on the forum anytime. :)

I thought perhaps you would be knocking off for the holiday but if you're doing it I will be there.

Would love to be there but that time falls right smack dab in the middle of REM sleep.

If I find myself awake though I'll be there!

I am encouraging anyone to take advantage of the nice offer that Robert has given. Robert has graciously joined our time as a "animation consultant". He is very generous and giving with his time and is very helpful. Every time that we have met over the last few months I have learned something new or have been truly impressed or inspired.

 

Anyway take some time to join Robert on Saturday mornings even if it is for short time.

 

Steve

I might finally be able to attend this week's Live Answer Time! :)

 

Any specific tips for getting connected?

Besides what Robert posted of course:

You will need Skype and a microphone. You don't need a camera

An A:M-related question is handy too, but I have also answered questions about Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, low-cost eyeglasses and Obamacare.

If AM had a Steam distribution you could broadcast live footage with audio of AM being used along with a chat window. Might be good exposure for the program and even develop a following?

Yes, although I'm not sure every caller wants their question or problem broadcast to the world. :P

Hello I am very new to this my mom was Kat. I saw the messages left on her legacy page thank you for that. I have all her computers and work I would love to honor her work and some how finish it for her. Needless to say I have very little knowledge about how her very system work and have been nervous about losing any of her info. I am an ultrasonographer and work with 3-4D scans of the body but that's about as far as it goes my mom tried to show me some stuff and I know how she wants "just. Wooden sword" to end, until now I wasn't sure whom I could reach out to if any of you have some free time or wish to help me out please email me at. Jamie.brunell@aol.com again thank you all for you kind words she really was one of a kind.

Hi Jamison, first, so very sorry for your loss. Kat was a wonderful inspiration around here. Anything we can do to help you we will try. Ask lots of questions

Jamie,

It is so good to see you here and I'm thankful that you have made the effort to reach out and more importantly to continue the work of your mother. I think she'd be very pleased to know that her characters and stories are still moving forward. 'Just a Wooden Sword' may have life outside of the realm of 3D animation and that is evidenced by Kat's work with dolls... her books... recordings... there is a much larger world to which those characters and stories belong.

 

Short of hiring an agent and having them pursue some form of licensing I'm not sure what to suggest with regard to Kat's characters and stories.

If continuing to refine the work she was doing here in the forum is an avenue of interest to you it's an easy thing to assign Kat's special topic to you.

There are several who helped model characters for Kat's tale that currently don't frequent the forum. I'd like to think they might find their way back and help you pick up the torch.

I (personally) try to keep most of my efforts in the public arena and encourage others to do the same but understand that might not be the ideal way forward for you.

I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

 

Just know that, as I know your mother understood, you don't have to go it alone. :)

 

 

P.S. At some point I'll likely move these posts to another location. Perhaps as a topic in the 'Just a Wooden Sword' forum. If it seems to have disappeared look for it there!

Hi Jamie! Welcome to the forum!

 

If you have Skype and want to call in to Live Answer Time to ask questions, definitely do that.

 

Or you can always start a thread here to pose a question. Some smartypants will have an answer!

Live Answer Time returns, April 30!

 

Skype has not been working well for us lately but we'll give it one more try this Saturday.

 

 

In the meantime, I recommend everyone get your Google+ account up to date so you are able to remember your password, and sign in. We may try "Google hangouts" next week, which is similar to Skype conference calling and seems to have better performance when several people are on at once.

I have to set my alarm because it's right as I get into REM sleep otherwise.

Too short but always a good time. :)

I'm afraid I'm going to have to cancel for today, May 7.

 

I'm not well, and I don't think I'll be able to talk or sit upright for an hour. :mellow:

 

We'll be back next week!

Hope you get better really soon Robert.

 

The Saturday Q&A is a real treat. I anticipate it becoming a very large event each week. Not sure how that will mold/ shape it.

 

Being able to enjoy the people and their input from the A:M community is not only encouraging but informative.

 

Whether you are an A:M veteran of many years or you just started using it, the Q&A is a special time. Most of us who have participated

are surprised at how fast the hour goes by.

Sorry to hear you have been sick Robert.

 

I overslept and just now woke up... feeling all bummed seeing the time and noting that I missed today's session.

So I'm glad to see I didn't miss Answer Time but sure wish it was under better circumstances.

 

Get well soon!

Rob,

 

Hope you're feeling better soon. I would go to the hospital and get checked out if it lasts much longer, it could be something serious and not just a touch of the flu.

 

 

Rodney, now I'm really wishing I had finished my K-9 model last Saturday instead of running errands.
