For all my Lelutka Mesh Head using friends in particular… did you realize that you can control the animations that show emotions on your head by chat command? A lot of people don’t know that the Lelutka creator makes this openly available!* I’m including an excerpt from the website but please visit the link and read the info first hand. This is a really cool feature to include in your choreography or machinima!
*All heads work fundamentally the same and some creators make the channels and commands more or less publicly available. Please contact the creator and/or developer website for your preferred brand for more info.
This is another of the Core Tools found in the new and UPDATED MetaHarper Show Tools System. I’m giving this video it’s own page so it doesn’t get lost in the tools that are more directed at the stage set itself. This little guy deserves a page of it’s own! I’m also including the direct link to the MetaHarper instruction page for the Choreo HUD – Dancer/Director Edition. Not only is that HUD also a truly valuable tool, but the instructions are the same and well written. I have found this HUD to be a real benefit in building my animation sequences. I love that I can make alterations in the timeline on the fly without fiddling with Notecards or reloading the HUD constantly. It may not be the only HUD I use, but it’s become a very valued tool in my arsenal. I hope you all find it helpful as well!
Have you ever attended a class to learn to use a tool such as Spot On Choreography Designer, or building where the edit screen is a big part of the process but you can’t see the instructor’s edit screen! How frustrating is that? Well, I’d like to offer a solution! I am going to be offering a limited selection of classes which will SIMULCAST in Second Life and Live YouTube Stream! * Now you can see the instructor’s screen live and the class may also be recorded to refer back to later! What a great opportunity!
The first class offering for this new platform will be:
Support Dancers: What you need to know ! Monday May 20 @ 4pm SLT This class will cover : -What is expected of Support (Backup) Dancers -How to prepare Fit Folders and prepare for the show -Routines to help reduce lag and improve performance of your viewer -What can you do to be an even more valuable member of the show team!
*Note: you may participate in the class by observing the Live Stream only if you like, however the best experience may be to have the ability to attend the class in SL and use the Live Stream video for your actual participation. I will be using the voice and chat in the live stream feed so that the recording will contain all of the conversation.
