going nowhere fast I was thinking about different possblle moving backgrounds that i could create and then it struck me "wait a sec!, as soon as my character starts walking he's going to walk straight off the set!" away from the moving background,

What good is that?

So could we please have the ability to lock a character in the one spot while he carries out the walking/running animation as if he was on a treadmill?

cheers in advance

Could this be done in a simplistic way by having
a clench fist/open hand slider plus a hand rotator (like the head rotator) OR
having a distinct set of hand animations: clench fist, open hand, point etc

thanks

Toonarama


exactly what I was about to post!

slider, tick boxes, separate hand poses or a combination

must be a method in there somewhere


Dont you just love it when people ask for things without knowing exactly whats involved.....Once you've conquered all these things i would like a time machine and a pair of hover trousers to get to my work
if its not too much trouble!

I guess the problem is just how it's implemented and how we get all these different suggestions working together in a system that's simple enough to use, yet specific enough to provide all the desired control.

Answers on a postcard please...


the way the head is animated with the ball in the head shape that is moved around

Couldnt we do the same for each hand? (ball in hand shape)

sorry i didnt have a postcard handy

Body Movements Thats already a feature !

just record yourself as you described and post the video on the forum and the muvizu cam encoders will run the mocap facility on it for you and send the required code for your movie to your inbox






go on do it!





























Gotcha!

Yeah I suggested that a while ago, there was some reason why it couldn't be done...it would be really handy to have this.


I would have thought it would have been on the table from the start to be honest since all animation has to be aligned with the audio correctly and this is the perfect way of ensuring that it does

Maybe a panel which could be expanded from the bottom of the timeline which would show a generated jpeg of the audio and could be scaled in parallel to the timeline would be a solution rather than trying to encode it directly into the makeup of the timeline

a scalable generated image?

yes? ....still no?

Visible audio I feel If the audio waveform was visible on the timeline then we would have a more acurate way of placing our chosen animations on it

you know the kind of thing .
What do you think?

Well, when the call comes I (and others) do run and change into a different outfit and people are usually pleased to see us (unless it's Guy Fawkes night).....




no tights or capes involved though!

New character? freakmoomin wrote:
Spot on dreeko

we are looking into ways of head replacements just now infact (although as usual there are 101 issues with it from a tech point of view)

im really hoping we can find a way to do this as it will allow for a lot of expansion with a lot less work......



hurrah!




sounds like our wishes will be granted again...good stuff!

Vertigo I could actually end up at heights like this with my job. so for me its more real than i care to think about at the moment thank you

New character? A lot of cartoon characters in a series (peanuts, southpark etc) all have similar proportions to the their framework as the other characters in their respective shows. When we watch these cartoons we are generally focused on the faces and this is where most of the customisation has to come from i believe.



Surely giving us the ability to change head shapes, move and resize eyes,noses mouths etc wouldn't have that great an impact on the animations as far as cut throughs etc are concerned, so long as you put an upper and lower limit on the moving and resizing




when i watch a cartoon i'm looking at the expressions and emotions conveyed on the character , not how big its arse is

Steve hughes ipart 2 Part 2 of Austrailian comedian Steve hughes in Muvizu form

cheers!

the importance of hands With all the talk on the forum of a need for more subtle animations and more control over facial features be it full expressions or just the eyebrows, a feature that should not be overlooked when it comes to expression are the hands. So much can be shown emotionally just by merely changing hand postures and positions throughout an animation.this clip from creature comforts below shows exactly that








and there are some great use of eyebrow movements too (hint hint)

Steve hughes part ! I just rattled it out on the fly , pass after pass .
But part two has been done with stopping and starting on the timeline




its bloody murder with this laggy laptop though, Violin hope santas good to me with a new one. If not then im going to have to storm muvizu towers to use your puters!....im only in east kilbride you know so watch out!! Angry Mob
