Is your head inside its OWN folder separate from the Body? and both of those folders are INSIDE the +MyPuppet folder?
For the Dangle if you are using photoshop you can use the lasso tool on your cloak layer and select around the parts that you would like to dangle, the press Control X(Command X on mac) to cut and then choose Edit>Paste Special> Paste into Place.
Now your cloak should LOOK the same, but the layer you are going to dangle will be on a separate layer. Then you can mess around with the Physics properties to increase the gravity strength, direction, etc.
Hope that makes sense!
Thanks for the reply Mark, the problem with the head movement was indeed folder hierarchy. I had it all right except I forgot to put everything inside a +mycharacter folder and that seems to have solved the problem
As for the dangle, what you suggested was what I first attempted and it didn't work but for some reason after trying again just now it is working haha.
Cheers for your help!
you are welcome James! I'm so glad I was able to help and that it all worked out! Super fun huh!?
Thanks for your nice reply!
I think you can mark this as Answered, not sure if there is a button for that? If not I guess a moderator will.
It really is a blast seeing a Photoshop PSD come to life so effortlessly.
yes it is great.. makes me feel like a little kid again! Have you used Timeline>Computer Lip Sync from Scene Audio ...
wow.... create or import sound and as long as you have all the mouth movements --- it works in ONE click!
I have! It's so cool and I'm glad it's in there. It's my preference to do the voice acting first and everything else kind of comes later from that. Here's the puppet I've been working on and I used this exact feature with a little bit of manual touch up
For lols here's another character I'm working on too, this one I learned how to do the eyes on. Coarse language warning.. haha eye tests - YouTube
Your drawing skills are awesome, good job! Mine are kind of weird amalgamations of photos and stuff
looks great! you are very good ash creating the mouth movements, very creative, both are very well done. Thanks for your comments, but I can't take credit, not my art... I just did a fast job, cutting it all up, rigging, and animating it since I had the audio.
Also loved the smoke! I guess you laid it over another video in Pr or Ae? cool stuff, thanks for sharing!
Thanks! That's right it's some trickery with layer masks in Premiere
