Hi I am trying to do a little project, let me try and explain my situation. I have done an animation with an open book in iClone 6.5 and used anime studio to animate the words on the first page so they look like they are been magically written. I then put them together in Sony vegas to make it look ok. But now i want to turn the page to a blank page make it look like it draws a picture magically and then make the 2D image look like its gets up off the page. Ive seen it somewhere but cant remember where. Has anyone got any ideas, video tutorials etc to approach it the best way possible. 

I would still like to produce this in iClone 6.5 if possible, as the animation should be better than doing it in something like Anime Studio
Here is a link to what i have attempted so far

It seems a bit of an oddball question but i think it would be brilliant for my grandsons educational animations i work on from time to time.

Many thanks for the help

I think someone in the Marketplace, created a "Gingerbread Man" prop or character!. What comes to mind  is to have the character laying on the page so that it appears to be flat, then animate is so that it rises from the page.  Biggboss has motions of getting into and out of bed.

I found the gingerbread man character and that will really help. Thanks for the heads up. But to bolster the image i wanted to either do an animation of the other characters being drawn, or animate the text being written. I have attempted this using MOHO but hit more and more problems than i was hoping for. Can this be done in iClone 6. I was thinking about some way of masking the text somehow but cant find any tutorials to learn about this sort of masking. 

Any help would be great

Many  thanks

woody,

As far as animating the text being written, there are several packs in the Marketplace for writing animation(s).  Also there are tutorials on how to animate writing using After Effects, Powerpoint and there is VideoSribe, PowToon, Pencil2D (never used any of these); after rendering you would bring them into iClone as videos.

Hopefully this helps and maybe there will be more suggestions from others.

I searched in the iClone section of the MarketPlace for "text" and found something you might like called Ghost Writer: http://city.reallusion.com/ContentPreview.aspx?i=JIC252b1a817bdd103c7. This tool allows you to use any font (the text is prepared outside iClone).

Another option is Text Writer, a set of props for the 26 letters of the alphabet (capital letters only): http://city.reallusion.com/ContentPreview.aspx?i=JICd5e375b34149f30c4. The props are placed in the desired position and can then be animated vis a Write perform action.

I haven't used any of these myself, but it may give you an idea. For drawing on a page you probably have do something with a video texture. Cricky has an Etch-a-Sketch prop that seems to work that way: http://city.reallusion.com/ContentPreview.aspx?i=JIC7abc331470b5ac472.

Searching for "book" returns a couple of animated books that might be of help.

Access the MarketPlace iClone section here: http://city.reallusion.com/ContentPreview.aspx?i=JIC7abc331470b5ac472, where you will find a search option.

A lot of methode write text animation :
- 2D text write    ----------> first , make text 2D format with animation ( Use AE , Power Point, Power Director, Sony Vegas etc )
                                          then bring to iClone 6.5 as video format or use PopVideo Converter  make transparan file.
 
- 3D text write     ----------> first , make text 3D format with animation ( Use 3D tool like Cinema 4D, Maya, 3D max etc )
                                           then bring to iClone 6.5 as prop ( Via 3Dxchange )

After that on iClone 6.5  ---------> sincronisation text writen with character ( action motion writen )


Maybe helpfull .
