Sure have. Unfortunately that twists the belt treads. I need them to follow the contour of the curve.

Re: Follow Path as a pseudo bone

I was hoping to use selgin's idea to create a conveyor belt system where the belt treads would follow the path/bones around the curved end sections. I would like to get each tread to bend around the curve instead of just staying flat. I can't seem to get it to work. Does anyone have any ideas or sim...

Hardware Comparison - Unexpected Results

I recently was able to get my hands on a Dell XPS-8300 i7-2600 to compare its speed to my Dell XPS-8300 i5-2320. Both machines used the same 16Gb of RAM as well as the same video card, PNY GeoForce GT 430. After installing ASP 10.1 on the i7 system I tested it using a few of my larger animation proj...

My Girls Reactions

Just a tongue-in-cheek quickie I did about my daughters and new wife and their reactions to the same request.

Re: Moving a mask over stationary object/text

Thanks for the example but that isn't what I was looking for. I need the object to move over the text (say from left to right). As the object passes over, the text appears. For example: http://imageshack.com/a/img905/8301/a54pDK.png As the witch flies across the screen the words appear behind her. (...

Moving a mask over stationary object/text

I've searched this forum and tutorials for help on this but not having much luck. I want to move an object across the screen and I want stationary text to appear as the object moves over it. I tried making a mask but can't figure out how to keep the text stationary as the object and its mask moves o...

Re: Flowing one scene seamlessly into another

Planning this is crucial. Do a plan on paper, write down each segment's frame length, and each of your loop's frame length. Calculate and double-check so you know which loop starts with which frame in each segment. Use the sequencer view of the timeline to shift the loops to the correct starting po...

I found some great ones here...

Just look for "Masking" under the Categories Tab.

Good luck!

SOLVED: Flowing one scene seamlessly into another

Instead of creating one long animation, which will tax my system resources, I plan on dividing up it up into several parts (projects). The entire animation will have objects moving in a continuous loop. For example, the rotor blades of a helicopter and an animated GIF or two that I will import as an...

One Action to Control Multiple Characters?

I searched everywhere and can't find a solid answer to my question. Does anyone know if it is possible to create a single "Action" that can control more than one boned character? I tried putting both characters in a "Group" and create the action for the group but if I try to click any of the charact...

ASP 9.5 Lip Syncing Issue

Has anyone noticed that lip syncing characters, via 'Mouth Switch Layer' to imported audio doesn't seem to work nearly as well as it did before the upgrade. And I don't mean just slightly worse, I'm talking about entire words and sometimes more being completely skipped over. I even opened an old ani...
