Re: New commercial, first draft

Her hips are too close together, and her waist is not over the centre of gravity -- if she has her weight supported on her left leg, her body should be further over to her left. Yeah, that's what I meant. I think I need to re-do the bones. Do I need to re-do the bones? I think so. I’ve found that C...

I have. I'll go back over it again, but I have never had much luck with it.

Re: New commercial, first draft

Thanks.

Her hip doesn't seem to be in the right place when she leans back. It's offset from where her leg should connect with her pelvis. Do I need to re-do the bones?

Re: New commercial, first draft

I fixed the shoulder with a smart bone, and managed to figure out how the binding was set up on the skirt, so I could get the apron working right. When she leans back though, the character's hips don't look right, and the edge of her skirt doesn't move the way it should. Any idea how to fix this? ht...

Create and assign styles?

This has always been confusing to me, because it's not very intuitive. In theory, this should making changing clothing and skin color a breeze, but it never seems to work for me. I create styles, but then how do I assign them to shapes?

Thanks.

Re: color issue

Sounds like to me that you changed the color while not at frame 0, so you accidentally set a key frame somewhere. If that's not the case, I have no idea, since I've never had this problem. When changing color fills, you must select an object's shape. You may be forgetting to do this, it's easy to do...

Re: how to make clothes

Find a picture online of the clothing you want to make, import it, and trace around it. Or is your question more technical than that?

Re: New commercial, first draft

Thanks! I will have look up a tutorial on smart bones. Is that in AS9? Could you explain how you would fix it? Is there a way to know how the bone binding was done originally? Why do some of my new points work with the bones, yet some do not? It's been awhile since I used AS last, I've forgotten som...

Re: New commercial, first draft

Now I have to tweak everything so that it works right. The apron works pretty well, except that her left shoulder covers it up when she moves her arm up. It doesn't look right. Also the pockets on the apron aren't being affected by the bones right. The apron, which I created from scratch, works with...

Re: New commercial, first draft

I'm looking for some feedback on this.

My client says he thinks the woman looks too rich to be one of their customers. Any suggestions on making her look more poor?
I thought the fact that she has appliances from the 1950s would help, but I guess not.

Thanks.

Re: Starting on new cartoon.

Looks like a good start. I agree about the head squishing though. Maybe you could make switch layers with specific emotions or facial poses, and use Interpolate layers. There are pros and cons to switch layers. Currently I am working with a purchased character that has eyes on a switch layer, no int...

New commercial, first draft

I'm working on a commercial for a local appliance and mattress store. Here's my animation. I used a stock character I purchased on Content Paradise. She was TV news reporter character, but I modified her slightly. I got rid of the microphone, and I modeled her hand to hold a frying pan. I also purch...

Yes. put the clip with the alpha channel onto the timeline above the other video tracks. Then go to the Effects tab and drag Blend onto the truck clip.
