    ... yes there is a combination fo Go figure ani blocks , Poser mocap BVH files and a lot of hand keyframing

    Okay, it seems to work pretty well. I thought you might have gotten into your own mocap software, capturing motions from live actors. A friend of mine is on a production team that is creating a feature length animated movie (fairly big budget, too). They are planning a mocap studio, using new Microsoft Kinect cameras which are due out sometime this year, I think. I forget the software, but I think the whole affair is reasonably affordable, or at least not "Pixar Level Cost".

    I generally use only free and purchased mocaps (I have a pretty good collection), plus some hand key framing. I *think* a custom mocap setup would be nice, but I dunno, may be a lot of work. (This is one place where the live action directors have an advantage, they just tell the actor, "Okay, this time jump off the building waving your sword and grab onto the helicopter, then ... ", etc.) :coolgrin:

    I know what you mean about cost .. animation libraries for Maya is ridiculous.
    I only make these for fun so I'm not really going to put that much money into extra software to make mocaps for daz studio. I'm only using daz and poser software, and like you do, I use what is available to work with for those programs . if i have the time i like trying to hand key frameing that's fun too. But time consuming. :) if i was making money off these animation then i might put more into it. But for a YouTube animation there good enough for me Did you ever notice how many people think they are a expert on animation but never have any videos of their own to show their expertise..lol creating animation with Daz and Poser is not that easy and very resource intesive on a PC

    But they are better than still frames slide show and calling it animation, which i have see a lot of people do. lol
    But we got to work with what we got when using affordable software don't we :)

    First of all ..Well done Ivy ...Secondly Well said

    Good job, nice character animation as always.

    Have you seen the 2005 scifi movie "Serenity"? I'm a big fan of the TV series "Firefly", the movie is apparently a fan supported affair done after the series was cancelled (?!?!?). In mid-season (?!?!?!?!?). After showing the episodes out of order (?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?). The movie gets a very good 8/10 at IMDB (the series gets 9.2), and three stars from Ebert (RIP). I bring it up because the character "River" (Summer Glau), does some pretty amazing fighting against what seems like several hundred REALLY bad guys (the Reavers). Ms. Glau must have had some extensive training. You can see some of the fight in the 2 minute trailer at IMDB, and a longer excerpt here:

    Thank you Steve for the nice comment
    This version of Karate girl was rendered in Poser pro, and it was my first g2f female animation in poser
    i had to make transparency maps to fix the poke through on the sunny bathing suit, I wish g2f was easier to work with.
    also the dynamic water in poser would not take the shadows right, it seemed it kept changing color on me..lol
    but over all not bad for a 2 minute film with g2f.
    BTW that was a pretty exciting film clip you posted lots of great action scenes :)

    Thank you for the very nice comment Wendy.
    I don;t see anything wrong with your work Wendy. I think your stuff is very entertaining. and most definetly Oginal ..lol
    Its okay if Bigh thinks it is not one of my best films. I can't always make a block buster, not that I ever have to begin with..lol
    i just enjoy making them and hope others will too.
    My Karate girl series is something that get request to make on youtube that is why i keep doing them.
    But i relies its not some peoples cup of tea either. :)

    One thing I have to say is that i am starting to learn how to get g2f to work in poser animation now that i know how to get around the poke through issue somewhat and its work with the Sub-Division pretty good. I have been playing around trying to get g2f to work within poser physics so i can apply the soft body tissue movements that is even more poke through to deal with..lol
    So maybe after i master g2f in poser maybe i get get it to work in Daz as well. :)

    Well done Ivy. One of the best action sets I think I have ever seen you create. This one goes to the top of my list as user done animation as it should be done. Bravo.

    Thank you very much Jeff for the sweet comment.
    I can make animations much better in poser than Daz , maybe just because i am more experienced using poser.
    I don't if you noticed but this was my first G2F in a poser animation , she didn't have much of a part but i'm getting there. :)

    I did read that and I could not even tell, it was done so well I caught no errors in the G2F. One of the reasons for the Bravo, also such smooth action, I now wish my savings account grew faster so I could start to learn in the newest Poser. That will come in time though.

    Thank you Jeff. with practice i am sure I'll get a little better at g2f the trick of having to make the transparency maps for the characters to eliminate the poke through seems to be the ticket , it just take a little time making them in order to make it work right., hopefully in time more products will be developed for daz studio for animation, i really miss my particle FX tools and i have had no luck to get my partical plugin to work in 64 byte
    So in the mean time poser will do ,and i can still use all my older fx tools as well which has been good as well.

    I have always taken advantage of the early adopters programs for poser where i can get it at 80% off which is the only way I could afford to keep my poser up to date other wise I'd be using older versions as well. i think got a add though for a July special to get pp2014 for 60% or 70% off at $199.
    but that is still pretty steep when you need to pay import things first like food and electricity. I think that is why i have slowed my buying down
    I was going to buy some new models the other day there was some really nice stuff i seen
    But I invested in a good deal of silver bullion & junk silver coins instead. I had been having this weird dream lately that i may need it in the future. so i taking it as some kind of a omen. I'm weird like that..lol

    Thank you very much Dave,

    these programs are great for telling stories it's just hard for one person to get all the little details
    I think I am starting to get the hang of poser for animation, its only taken me 6 years to get this far...lol
