Do a google search for Eadweard Muybridge. the father of motion pictures :)

Check out the index for loads of animated gif's of his plates.

ah I forgot this Eadweard dude, hehe.
Great thanks Rumors. :thumbsup:

If somebody else wants to share any link or animation, common !!!
This ACS4 rig looks very nice so far, now its time for the nice quad rig animation results !!! :rolleyes:

Yeah,I'm planning on animating a horse (UserDeltas model) as well with the ACS4 rig, but I am having trouble getting decent deformations with the knees.

I am using MuyBridges "Horses and Other animal motions" book for reference. It's good.

Hehe, I’m using a horse model too, I bought it very very cheap at turbosquid, looks a lot better than userdeltas. :rolleyes:

Thanks for the book advice Perambulator.
I got the same trouble with the knees, maybe I will post a result tomorrow, I hope there is some time for this stupid horse walkcycle some day…:hmm:

Well, if you can work out how to get decent knee deformation, let me know.

It's funny, cause with simple bones, and limited weight maps (Not ACS 4 rig at all), the horse looks pretty good.

I have e-mailed Lukasz, so we'll see what he comes up with!
