  1. i am dealing with a multiuser virtual studio. but tonight i went to source filmmaker-- a valve software-- and saw how they make posters. they dont use any composition, but they had a matte sky. looking at how a movie poster would be done, it would be harder in second life. the hardest part, there is no way to animation without going back and forth in some other 3D package. http://sourcefilmmaker.com/post.php?id=8026&p=1 maybe i am the weird one, but if you had a chance like source filmmaker but for second life, would you want to try it?
  2. ah thanks. i forgot about those documents. i should be ok, since i have a fairly recent snowstorm. am using BJD doll for right now but since i cant find a bjd model for 3D. instead i use a sl mesh from a store.
  3. for the deforming mesh, i have no idea how to use it. will it give me a mesh that i can use in second life. or do i have special rules to use it. where is the button for the deforming mesh?
  4. well i am having trouble fitting clothes and accessories in general (blender). right now, i am working on the mayadoll and converting to something similar to this: i am also using ball-jointed doll so i need to cut up the mayadoll *from DollCoCo* of course this right now mayadoll and robotic is too dense for second life. but i want to use the same model for the high-end and for sl. but for second life. so i am interest in what kind of things i could use -- hair, clothes, attachment. or create something different. i have no plans on selling anything but i would want to have a standard model so that other people can wear whatever. i want a standard the we have agreed to so i can experiment with these models and bring them to second life/opensim.
  5. or... ... little more then a doll, this is a blender file.
  6. 6847636252984 twist to the right, twist to the left, jump up i am working on the mayadoll but i think BJD is better.
  7. for the last few days i have look for ball-joint doll in 3D. i found a couple for almost $300. i know the there is one in second life that is mesh and a few others that are skins. there are no free skins or meshes that you can use and modified yourself. BJD is the prefect body/head for our meshes. you can even have a body parts and pose it. and of course you can have it will new skins, tats, and such. the extension can be very nice too. you could model a 4-legged creature, or whatever. it could be a diorama with a few BJD meshes. i would like it to be .obj so that is can be used in zbrush, 3dsmax, blender, or other. i have one now that is a mayadoll. i like it better than makehuman but it has to be cut up and add joints. but with BJD we can have a standard and use that. better yet is a fully BJD in blender with the head/body, some clothes, animations, and painted correctly for sl. what do you think?
  8. most people dont know that i started the digital puppet workshop. it had several member but i promised to start a new group. well, i didnt. but now there is avastar for blender and the sl client will support .anim. there could be how to rig for avatars with mesh, even for non-human creatures. i would hope that the npcs would be in there too, but right now all i can chase is boxes. so far the name recommendation is "animating sl". any other idea? **added** for more information on anim http://blog.machinimatrix.org/avastar/avastar-anim-format/
  9. i did create circus mischief group in sl but havent done much with it. there are two goals: -phantastic faeries, escape from wonderland, and other stuff -finding new ways to do machinima right now, i see the iclone can use DAZ animations for its animations i dont know how much can be done but i would rather have a virtual studio where a few projects are done and there is characters, buildings, clothing, and then return with the video project is over. just like a real studio. maybe mischiefworks studio. some of it can be done by an external program such as blender/blender game engine. but then someone has to build the interface from the bge to sl. something like realXtend did with their blender/ogre/realxtend server.
  10. if you look at iclone 5 is has the ability to do mocap including kinect. for $150, you do a kissing that is actually on the lips not in the middle of the head. the problem is that every software developer works on their own version and rarely interface without anything else. for example, there is 3D animation in DAZ but you can not use to the advanced features because its in their format. you can use bvh like in poser but cant import your terrains or objects. blender has collada for sl. well kinda. but why have an sl version for export? maybe one of the feature of sl client is to have a gateway that you use for you developments and connect with the sl client. they do that with several software now so it allows it to "xchange it" -- like zbrush and maya. then you can work on the machinima toolset and interface it with the sl client and see the action. you can even have kinect until you are blue in the face and then send over the bvh files.
  11. i know that the sl client had the abiility record an avatar actions and replay them. i think its still there somewhere. but no clue on what you use to edit the actions or how to combine them with other actions. they also had a video that would work, but never got it to work for myself. i use fraps instead. but fraps is good at capture actions but you need additional software to to do the clips.
  12. except for some commerical ventures-- such iclone, massive, and movie*some*or*other-- no one has really made software that focuses on machinima. half life and unreal has apis that you can use. unity has api that you can use. even gargegames has apis. but no one deals with machinima itself. and there is no open source at all. but i feel there needs to be more machinima features. i could cover some of this, but i would rather hear from you.. one that second life can deal with, one that opensim with the right client can deal with. we cant do anything about second life server, but i think we can do something about the client. and opensim, we can do something and maybe get LL involved after the fact. i would rather LL be involved from the start. what do you want for your future machinima ?
  13. this is too much for meshes. it should go into the machinima forum.
  14. we should have a new category: avatars and characters. then we can include pathfinding and navmesh and new animations to support that. i have made a new category and my site but all i get is spammers. http://misfits.mischiefworks.net/index.php?topic=979.0
