EDIT: I have now moved all the tutorials to one place. Hopefully my ISP can handle it.
You can get them all at:
“Method 2” Assumes you have watched the first series, and moves somewhat faster…
This isn’t meant to be a dis of Ulven’s Video… but I figure maybe this may be helpful to some one who runs into problems, like I did.
Today, I finally got a work-around to the probelm I was having following along with Ulven’s tutorial.
I’m not sure why, but the joints on my BVH motion rig were always getting screwed when I tried to follow along with Ulven. After trying different things, I came up with something that works – at least for me.
I made a video tutorial of it, using JING, and it is stored it on Screencast. Basically, the first 3 videos explain the problem I was having. The fourth one shows how I got around the problem.
Then I put together 5 step by step videos that shows the whole process from start to stop. I used the THIEF.BVH that ships with Messiah, and the Dummy.LWo file that ships so if someone wants to follow along, they can be using exactly what I am using.
Probably no one on this board needs this tutorial except me (which is kind of ironic, actually, since I don’t need it anymore, either…) but in case some other noob is having the same problem I was having, I am leaving bread crumbs behind…
If anyone has time, and wants to check it out, I would love to have feedback. Particularly, I want to know if I say anything that is just plain wrong, or if I miss something obvious. That would be very helpful
