Went on summer vacation with the fam and managed to create this groovy hot tub/jacuzzi during a few of the down times when not in the pool or ocean.  Includes 2 modified legacy particles (bubbles & water ripples), a wooden deck with subprop fence panels and deck/pool chairs to soak up the sun.  Just 450 points.

A successful vacation all the way around!

Thanks for the kind words Peter.  I've switched to modeling in Blender this year and I'm really happy with the results which has led to a more active role in the marketplace.  

Looking forward to more tales of Arianna!

Howdy all.  This month I've been focused on creating morphing props (September Morph for all you Neil Diamond fans...). 

First off I released a Morphing Umbrella pack that has three umbrellas (a single color, a rose and a spiral umbrella) that can be opened and closed using a single morph.  Keep dry on the fly!  Mason is so happy and satisfied!



Next up I released a Morphing Trampoline with 4 morphs of varying bounce depths and one off center bounce morph.  Get your bounce on like Kim Jong-Un! 
Little side note, our old neighbor gave my son a small backyard trampoline (which Kid Millions loved) and would always ask him if he was getting his tramp on.  Strange bit of phrasing but hey, free trampoline!



Now this morning I've released a Free Morphing Squeeze Bottle so anyone who's never played with morph props has a chance to download the bottle and play around with it to see the possibilities of morph props.  Be sure to check out Mason angrilly squeezing that bottle in the video.  So angry.  Anywho, have fun!

Thanks (and your're welcome!) ToyStoryLab. 

I had been meaning to learn morphs for a while for the express purpose of making a functional umbrella.  I think it worked out pretty well.  I found Warlord's video tutorial very helpful (below).  I also need to take a look at Lord Ashes multi step morph tool soon as it definitely adds new functionality to the morphing process.  Hoping to add more morph props in the near future.

Good morning Icloners!  Way back when, I was watching a classic cartoon and thinking about how us poor 3D animation hobby folks could pull off those neat squash and stretch animations everywhere.  Then along came the IC7 morph abilities and I filed this idea into my noggin.  Now this weekend I've managed to release Willie's Steamboat!  It's similar to a classic boat from cartoon history with cartoony morphs on the steam pipes, flag and all three steam whistles.  Take a look at the video to see it in action.   

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/aabf41bb-9924-4674-b10a-ad13.jpg



As a last touch for the prop I modelled a black steam cloud that I figured would morph in shape and then dissolve.  However, the prop would have to be duplicated for each iteration of the steam pipe morph which was a big pain in the butt.  Therefore I modded a legacy "puff" particle and managed to get the timing in sync with the animation (as well as starting the second emitter one cycle behind to have them offset).  Pretty happy about how the whole thing turned out.

Speaking of classic cartoons, today I've released the Cartoon Family TV Room.  No fancy morphs in this one but I'm happy with how it came out.  The phone was a particular source of frustration and then pride.  Anywho, its perfect for toon shading or rich GI lighting (as seen in the video).  Impress your friends with your own couch gags!  Happy filming.

Here's an interesting project I've been working on for a while and released on the marketplace today - Davinci's...er TheBiz's Last Supper.  The project includes the room with exterior backdrop, wall tapestries, table with bread, oranges, wine glasses and plates, a knife accessory and 13 posed characters.  I posed the characters using the Chuck G5 and then replaced him with clonebone characters to reduce the project size.  To use your character in the project just drag and drop onto the selected clonebone and then adjust the hip/waist up/down in the edit motion layer tool. Poses were created with the chuck character so similarly sized characters should require only minor position edits.

Your ability to use this project will depend upon your computer specs and the abilty to handle 13 characters in a project. My computer (I7, Nvidia 970) could handle 13 chuck characters (about 25K) but bogged down using CC characters of appx 45K each.  Project is appx 39MB.
