Hello,

I need a new motion file for an iProp (a Cat) for a movie but I see on the iClone Wiki that it says that the AML Script Editor is only for iClone 3.

Before I went to the iClone Wiki I tried many times, and failed, to use an AML file I created in iClone 4 Pro.

Will you be coming out with an AML Script Editor for iClone 4 and if so, when do you expect it?

In the meanwhile, how do we create specific motion files that we need for iProps?

I didn't know it wasn't supposed to work in iClone 4 so now I understand why a script I created failed.

As iClone 4 can use other and even older AML files, I wonder what the problem is.  It's just an XML file so it should be easy to fix the editor.

Hi zuijlen,

We are also still waiting for the 3ds Max plugin for the 2010 version, right?

I have videos I need to finish so I am going to download the free trial of XML Spy Pro at http://www.altova.com/xmlspy.html

If that will allow me to do more than the AML Script Editor and if I can figure it out, then all the better.

Take care,

Sherif

Microsoft has something called XML NotePad, which is free. I have tried to compare AML files that work with the one I created, but up to now it is not clear to me what the difference is.  I know we have AML gurus on the forum so maybe they can step in.

Hi Guys,
the XML and AML editors are nothing more than glorified text editors. The AML editor goes a step further and hides the scripting part that gets repeated a lot and let you just fill in the blanks to make it easier for you to make scripts. Technically you could just use note pad to fix things, but it is harder to find stuff and read the scripts.

Hope this helps,

Hi zuijlen,

Thanks for the link to the free XML software.

Originally I opened one of the AML files in Notepad to look at the code, that is when I saw "Created Using XML Spy Pro" so I took a look at it.

The bottom line is, I do not want to have to go through 10 pages and hundreds or thousands of lines of code just to adjust or create an animation for an Actor or iProp...

Whatever tool will save me hours of time and effort each week might just be worth the price.

I mean if an iProp doesn't come with the motions that you need for a movie, there is no other way but to create or edit an AML script, right?

Yea it definitely would.

If you have certain motion requirements for a movie story, but those motions aren't in the iProp you want to use, you have no way to create that motion now.

So what to do, abandon your movie, wait, change your story, use a different software program and buy content for it, take a couple months to learn an XML Editor program?

I'll find out where things are going with the AML Script Editor on Monday. I'll let you all know what I find out as soon as possible. Thanks for the feedback.
