Ive had a look around but I cant turn anything up…. Is there a way to make my own animations/movements with animate 2 ? I saw a really good animation on youtube called ‘women in red belly dance’ or something like that using animations not included with Daz3d.
Is it a case of literally making one frame at a time then reposing the model and so on ? At 30 fps a 3 min video would take an age !
yes if you have the full version - you can make your own aniBlock .
its easy to do .
It can be done; and yes for some animation moves it can take an age.
I have posted 2 animations (only 17secs) as a promo for my ‘ClassicRock’ rocking chair; and whilst you can ‘speed’ things up by using ‘keyframes’;.... with complex movements, (as with M5 in the rocking chair), there were a lot of places where I had to do stop-frame, because ‘keyframe prediction’ got it wrong…the feet would go through the floor etc. etc.
These 2 animations were my first real attempt at any type of animation; so don’t give in…find the tutorials or help files on Animate2…if memory serves me right then you get taken to their site, where they give some procedures etc. ...pick-out what you need…there’s a lot.
Don’t get overwhelmed; keep it simple to start with, until you’re familiar with the procedures of using ‘keyframes’ and creating and saving small ‘movement’ animations as ‘aniblocks’...if things go wrong (Ican vouch for this) you can end up in a real mess; then it’s best to start again.
Good Luck…Have Fun!
