I have been on the forums check it out in the backdrop and have found it most helpful. However I have come to a point where I need professional help man. I am sorta a noob, and was tryin to make some iProps. Tried doin a holographic computer interface and decided instead of animating it in each project it wud b so cool if I can build it as a prop with its own animations.

Hence I tried using the collect clip function but that led to more issues. The animations wud b stored in the perform right menu, but even after saving the prop, with the performsnces, deleting the animations it wudn't work correctly.

Now I came to AML Scripts, but it seems like my scripts from Iclone 5 do not open up in the AML Script Editor. Other Scripts that I downloaded form the net which were made in previous version of Iclone open up. Does the script editor only work for scripts generated from Iclone 3? Am kinda stuck on this.

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

Sorry, but the aml editor Only works (As expected )for iClone 3. There are a few workarounds, like pointing to the motion files, but RL stopped "ALL Tutorials" for AML since iClone 3!

Now iClone 5 has actually "Encrypted" the persona! To access ic5 aml you need to go to the folder containing the aml scripts.  Whereas before all you need to do was simply import it!

Why RL encrypted it to begin with.... Is A Mystery!

I bypass this headache by simply bringin "ALL" my animations into iClone.

I've posted this before; perhaps it was missed? :

The only thing that has changed in the persona is the extension. If you search for the *.lua extension files (which is what the persona is written in now), you can change the extension to *.txt or even *.aml and still edit it using Notepad or even the AML editor. Once saved you can rename it to *.lua and the persona can be reloaded.

Chuck for instance has a *.lua persona that looks like this as text:

Chuck.lua name changed to Chuck.txt

It's not necessary to change aml to Lua , it's the same for personna . Take the aml file no encrypted in template folder , load into aml script editor or edit with notepad , put aml modified in the same folder (personna) , acess to personna panel .


Why encrypted export personna when personna in template folder are not encrypted and can be load and reload after change into a avatar.
Aml is for users

Hey guys thanks again for the help with my AML issue. However I realise that Reallusion was the one sleeping on them. They recently released a patch in which the lua script file issues have been addressed. There in an option in the right click menu now saying LUA Scripts. It seems they heard our pleas and addressed the issue. So big up to them for that.

My problem now is not related but it was on this post I saw it. I have to do an animation in which a dollar bill is an animated character. I want it to be like the Emotidude Cricky has. The face and body is the square of the dollar and it has the hands and feet. How exactly can I achieve this in iClone.

Help needed.

Just a simple example...but it is a simple process...takes a few steps.

It contains a special egghead accessory I made so that characters could speak without having the need for Facial animation applied through iClone.

Not all characters can use Facial animation in iClone, but with this accessory any character that uses a standard head can use the Egghead as a substitute.

I have flattened the head to match the depth of the Bill used...normally it is in the shape of an Egg, thus the name Egghead.

The facial animation was done in DAZ using Librovox.org audio. Any voice can be used for the facial modeling and speech, including using the faces of iClone Standard Characters as the original source, to create the video applied to the Egghead so it speaks.

Actually that is not really the look I was going for. I attached a pic of the look we were hoping for.
