It looks awesome. Is it specific to version 4.0?

Andy741,

No its not specific to 4.0.
Its was done with the version before 4 came out so it all works with 3.3 and everything done on the tuts can also be used with 4.0. I think Joe is going to do some tuts that will deal with the new stuff in 4 and the new studio but I dont know for sure you will have to ask him.

Just wanted to let you know I'm here to answer your questions.


These tutorials will work in Animate 4.0 and 3.3
that's the nice thing about Technique; it's platform independent :-)

One piece of advise: BUY THIS VIDEO´s

It has the most simplistic and fast way of seting up a reverse foot setup that i ever saw, yet it´s a breeze to use.


The Fingers Expressions used are simple and so easy to get with, that i doubt i´ll ever make sliders to hand positions.

Setting nice Biceps deformations with a simple Expressions and those Muscle Bones tips are worthy the price alone.

After seeing this i can assure you all that in less than 2 hours everybody will have their characters rigged and ready to start the fun part: ANIMATION.

Great Video Tuts Joe, keep them coming

Just to add to Sil3's post

The back muscle setup is great and you can use this type of setup on other parts of your model. You can see this kind of setup in Joes demo on the website.

Hey Joe,

I was wondering if you might consider having downloadable chapters and scene files in the future if you plan on doing more Tutorials as well as CDs.

Regards,

- T

I'm pretty sure he's got more in the works. But as far as tutes for DL, it might kill his bandwidth.

I would think the the problem with downloading the tuts is bandwidth. But I'm sure joe will let you know.

and you are all correct :-)

the tutorials would take up alot of bandwidth. The rigging CD itself is 360 megs.

bandwidth exceeded with the first 20 downloads.

right now, I'm considering this on a case by case basis. nobody wants to stay online for 2 days downloading. and hosting a gigabyte of tutorial videos online is not cheap.

the advantage, though, is you can pick smaller tutorials a'la carte and have them instantly.

I'm in #messiah3d most days if anyone want's to post possible solutions.

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the Tutorial CD, and the price is pretty good as well.

Can't wait to see the other CDs.

Regards,

Yep, ordered mine today - that muscle bone in the back in the teaser is a great idea, can't wait to see the rest of the CD.

Besides being designed for animate/studio, can anybody do any comparisons between this CD and John Riggs' tutorial DVDs? I'm going to have all of them, of course, but I'm curious.

John's vids are more of a basic controls setup. (at least the first tape is). I haven't seen the other vids so I can't help you out there. Joe's vids have some very nice control systems in there and the implementation of them is quite easy to understand.

/me nudges JoeCosman for plugging his product
