  • @DafterThings yeah it is kind of an introductory course but it does explain some tips and tricks along with other stop motion animators they interview and explain their techniques. Hitfilm also did a course a while back as well covering green screen…
  • @spydurhank any issues yet with the card overheating? I have read about others having issues cause of the design of the card doesn't allow much in way of cooling and others have even stated that it gets so hot that even the side of their towers get …
  • @DafterThings Loved it, poor spidey never getting the respect he thinks he should. Not sure your background on the animation side of things but there is a free course on animation coming up on Futurlearn. The courses are typically short and at you…
  • I know that the update is supposed to allow GPU/CPU assignments not sure if that may be causing it @Triem23 I was wondering if that would cause issues with software with specific processor to GPU threading.
  • @spydurhank yeah I was a bit worried as well doing that April release update. But I have opened up and ran the programs I typically run and gave them a load test to make sure they still all work. And I guess I got lucky cause everything seems to be …
  • @DanielGWood As of this more recent update both the laptop and the desktop prompted me with the update option once splash screen loaded so I assume the issue is solved so I will change this to solved for the time being. However at this point in time…
  • Maybe that's why the dryer is stealing my socks. It is putting together a documentary on how people keep stuffing crap in its mouth. Awesome hack though. I knew about the tennis ball trick but never the socks. Will definitely be keeping a bundle of …
  • I am hesitant to say that I am glad to hear the back story on what happened that got you to this point. I was also considering creating 3d models to put up for sale but was so worried about getting burned in the process or getting yelled at from oth…
  • That's awesome @spydurhank is it a python script you need to run or did you go full blown add-on. And either way, when you get it all squared away are you going to share? *wink wink, crosses fingers* 
  • "My versions are far from perfect but I found myself learning so much more from them by using them for my own purposes than when I followed them originally." You have learned what a lot haven't. A tutorial is a tool to show you how to use the effec…
  • The reverse settings can now be easily switched in the preferences from right select to left select. Blender internal engine was ok for quick rendering but not quite there as far as realistic light bounces whereas cycles render is more realistic and…
  • Are you using onion skinning for the stop motion placements? Or are you just doing it by eye? Either way it looked pretty good. Some audio work would possibly be a suggestion, especially for Iron Man's voice it seemed a little too tinny and a bit di…
  • Awesome! Watched it multiple times while I was doing some uv unwrapping One of my favorite songs and glad it wasn't the atrocity that plays on tv commercials. Loved it!
  • Thank you for the input @spydurhank and @Triem23. I am onto the uv mapping and texturing phase now so hopefully I will have something to show again soon.
  • This is the start to a scene that I am making to use as a virtual set for green screen. I am creating it in Blender then once the modeling is all done then I will get into detailing textures and sections that will be keyed (like monitors and digital…
  • LOL next up a mime taking out the clown?
  • I know after some windows updates I have had issues with Hit film working correctly, but that is on Microsoft's side of things and releasing updates that are not completely bug free.
  • @HitFilmer128619 I wouldn't say it is bad, but if there is an update why put it off? I know that sometimes when working on a project it is sometimes annoying waiting for the update download but depending on your internet speed it shouldn't really be…
  • @Triem23 and @spydurhank thank you. I am still working on the FlyingBanana plane still painting the uv map for as well as doing a painted bump map texture as well for panels/windows/and rivets.
  • This was another model I made in Blender then composited in the clouds and a sky gradient in Hitfilm, kind of figured it went with my username FlyingBanana so figured I would create a plane with bananas on it.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bh…
  • @DannyGrey Awesome job and congrats on winning the competition!   On a side note maybe some masking for when in the canoe, the oar is hidden behind the canoe when paddled on the left side. But honestly it didnt take away from the great work on the…
  • @DanielGWood ok once I see there is an update show up on my laptop I will tag you back on this thread here to see if the desktop prompts me for an update or if I have to do it manually still and then share what log info you need.
  • @DanielGWood ok I cut and pasted what you asked in a text back home and had it checked, this is what I got back from the reply.   {"autoCheckForUpdates":true,"sendSysteminfo"true,"disableUpdateChecksUntil":1487702074347}
  • @DanielGWood I will do that once I get back home to my desktop. I will post back on the result when I get it. Thank you again for pointing me in the right direction and prompt responses.
  • @DanielGWood no virus software is running just security essentials which is same as what the laptop is running. As for internet, yes it is always connected to the internet hooked up hard line not WiFi. Also I never do a remind me later or not now fo…
  • I would have to agree with NormanPCN on the explanation of what could be the issue. I was an auto mechanic for a long while and one vehicle in particular had issues and would come into our shop quite often for the same issues. The intermittent wiper…
  • This one is just a messing around bit taking a quick and I do mean quick 4 second and maybe 2 minute modeling and animation in Blender and rendered out to a png image sequence with two tracking points on each side of the engine locations to see if I…
  • I am going to tag one of the staff and see if they will have any insight here. However you might want to try a support ticket through the website to get more one on one help with the issue. @CedricBonnier  
  • Are you using an animated mask or just trying to use a rectangle/box mask? If just a rectangle mask that will be why it is cutting the actor in half, you will need to move the mask as the actor is moving as well to keep them in the shot but still ma…
  • @TimeyWimeyGirl7 glad to hear you got it all worked out. It all comes easier over time.
