Useful free plug-in

The Posetool plug-in by Simo Sokerov

Animator's Posetool or PoseTool for short is a 3dsMax utility plugin inspired by Steve Johnson's script anipose. PoseTool's purpose is to improve the character animation in Max. It gives you a unique combination of features that helps you bring your characters to life. PoseTool is not a complicated character animation system like Ch.Studio or CAT. It works with your own objects. PoseTool is simple and offers you a creativity and big pleasure of animating.

I've always been curious about this book "The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation by Ollie Johnston". I've heard from more than one source that this is the Animation Bible but I have never seen it at a store.

I kinda want to see it before laying down $$$$ for it.

Yeah, that's a standard in the animation industry. The reason you don't see it in stores is because it's been out of print for a long time, and is kinda difficult to locate. Don't quote me on this, but I think I heard some rumor about it coming back into print again. It's been a while since I heard/read that, though, and I can't recall where the info came from. Could just be from my imagination for all I know. At any rate, it's well worth it if you can track one down.

Howdy,

There is a reprint of Illusion of Life. I got it last year from amazon (uk) and it's still available now.

Just thought I'd let you know.


Cheers


Jon

Seeing that this is mainly a 3D website/Forum, I guess the concepts of the book still apply to 3D as a medium (At least judging from what you've and the other people are saying).

I did see the book available online.

What the hell....I'll take the plunge and I'll buy it this weekend.
