    Great to see it back! I look a bit like him after XMass and NewYear, need to be pumped up again:-)
    I did not have lots of time to work with C4D, but I downloaded tons of tutorials and have to read them all, pffff. I like to animate the goose of Johnny the Noseblower and I try to find some logic in how to use all the tools.
    Here is a grab of a test I made, the more I close his mouth he looks like a singing P.

    Joe .. thanks for the codec info. I made my first ever anim a few days ago, and found the choice of compression variations somewhat confusing. Can Quicktime Pro turn a string of stills into an animated sequence?

    Great movie. Are the major jaw movements created by rigging or by morph targets? It has been cool watching you work through this piece.

    Baz .. that will be a fantastic animation. Good luck with it.

    Hey Moochie, I know Joe is busy right now - the answer is yes, concerning the stills into a sequence. They do have to have sequential numbers, but that is rather easy! You can email me directly if you like and I will be happy to give you all kinds of tips for H.264.

    Thanks for the feedback
    Dusty business all day, we're in the middle of a rehab-demolish on the back half our building.
    It's nice to settle in and enjoy the silence now...

    Abyssis hey thanks, too kind, seems we're all learning a lot from each other on this great forum.

    Bas I couldn't resist! a little preview of YOUR GOOSE... hahaha

    baz_Kipje.gif

    lol, your goose has a sexy tongue... and He's a horn blower too!
    That's a super character you've created.

    Moochie Good to hear from you, thanks, and yes as Jason mentioned you can import an image sequence into QT7... go File > Open Image Sequence.
    Perhaps he's already explained all the steps by now?

    You can use the free IrfanView for batch coverting, renaming, renumbering image sequences.

    The major jaw movements are from rigging.
    The jawBone rotation drives the lower face's geometry,like in nature, and zspheres.
    Usually it needs tweaking a little with a corrective morph. Hope that makes sense.
    I've tried the wide open mouth position in the past using a morph, but had problems with the influence of other morphs wrecking it's open shape.
    Also you can parent the lower teeth and tongue to the jawJoint for a simpler setup. Check a few pages back in the thread for some pix showing that.

    Seb, salut, glad you liked the latest version. Still needs to be more dynamic somehow.
    I like your idea for changing him....Maybe the color map could morph to different skin tones at certain beats?
    Not the overall mesh geometry, maybe just the color tones, and perhaps the hair color too. I'll run some tests to see. Thanks Seb!

    Jason Thanks for covering for me while the dust was flying lol, I'll contact you about your tips for H.264... much appreciated.

    Joe without doubt the monst entertaining render I've seen. It goes without saying that the style of the model is ...well its fabulous. But the way its ben presented realy catches the eye. As for the colour change all I can say is nice one mate. I really want to see the rest now.

    This guy seems so alive - creepy but cool nontheless!
    The animation is nicely done, but I think the lip-synch needs some touching up. Oh, and thanks for the information on Quicktime's H.264.
    I have it, and was looking to use it, but wasn't quite sure of how to go about it until now. Keep on rockin'!!!

    A skintone possibility. I'll try others. Thanks ZappLink...
    No hair, eyebrows, or lashes here, trying to rework those parts.

    Craig Ward Bas Mazur's Goose, the .gif is from the 6 poses that he posted.
    (Hope that's okay Bas ... I'm so in love with that goose - onk onk).

    Wayne Thanks a lot mate, I'm trying to work out the color changes, then more rendering.
    Should be able to do the blending in post with AfterEffects. Sorry you'll have to wait lol.

    Webhead I'll definitely agree with you, the lip-synch can be touched up in a lot of places.
    I have actually reworked more of it, just haven't rerendered.
    Hey glad the links on the H.264 encoder were helpful.

    aminuts oh yeah that would be Stan Laurel, the skinny one. Just checking out some pix of him, you're right! Also maybe Buster Keaton in there somewhere? Good eye.

    Frenchy very cool! I'll look at that soft closer, looks very useful.
    Hope you can think of a song, but please no Johnny Hallyday , yet Serge Gainsbourg is cool

    Abyssis heheh glad you laughed!
