Doing More Testing

video

I was just experimenting around getting the clouds to move and girl to do things and lighting set and camera angles on Stonehenge to see what it would look like. Then if I use the scene on the Lammy blog, I'd have to make voices and try to lip sync the mouth. Then the computer makes 30 pictures for each second of video which means about 2000 individual photos for one minute which is then compressed into a video format. I didn't put any sound on this, just make a quickie to get some general idea of what it looks like.

Checking Sound F/X

video

I was just trying to learn to put the right sounds in the right places with the movements of the characters. Also I had been messing with various morphs of Lammy and a new character I call Wikki Wakki. In the first clip, it was really the voice of Sarah Palen, or Palin, however you spell her name.

The Camera and Characters

video

Everything in the movie is programmed or scripted. I noticed that the camera can be set to move, and one of the settings was to fix it on a particular subject so that when the character moves, the camera moves so it constantly points at her. In the first scene I set the camera to always point at Filthy Fae's head, so whenever she moved her head, the camera kept the head exactly in the center of the frame which made the background move and look sort of strange. I was just curious how that would look. The character's moves are in blocks and the blocks are dragged onto the timeline of the movie with the mouse. We put several blocks together, and can even edit an individual block that scripts how the subject moves. The blocks are from a second to several and sometimes up to ten seconds. The sound is also in little files which I have downloaded from the net. The first one Lammy speaks is from Sex In The City, I think. I'm not sure where most of the sound files came from. Many from movie clips. In the last scene, Lammy, which is an Aiko 4.0 doll, is without her wig.

More Testing

video

For these little tiny videos for a post, I used 15 frames/sec and got the video down to under 2 Mb. That uploads fast. But I also made one for dvd to play on a tv. The voices are hard to understand because I was trying a text to speech program along with a voice changer program. My microphone is broke, I spilled coffee on it.

Lip-Sync Testing

video

I have a program to lip-sync a character as long as they are still or really from a single photo (Crazy Talk). Now I am trying to use Mimic that moves their lips while the character is moving at 30 pictures per second.

On Stage At Ugly Grace's

video

This is silly stuff. It is really just practice. Like a basketball player might spend hours shooting at the foul line or dribbling the ball up and down the court to sharpen his control. That's practice. And I do this to get used to the controls of the programs as well as see how they look here. They look pretty cool when I put them on a dvd and watch them on a regular TV.

Setting Up For A Picture

video
This is just to show how we can take pictures with 3D scenes. I put a girl doll or model on a stage with setting and told her to just move around while I showed how preparing for a picture was much like setting up a scene for a play with props. I wanted to show how we could move the camera to get different angles and perspectives of the model and even fly above the scene. The problems with movies is that the clothes and hair are stiff as you can see how they just hang and there is what we call "collision" where the legs and slacks pass through the half-skirt or v.v. And the back of the hair passes through the body stiffly. That is why those Japanese Anime cartoons have girls in very short skirts or they have to wear slacks or shorts. Dresses are a pain in animation. When making single photo shots these things can be corrected and the hair and clothes can be moved to adjust to the body movement.

Where All The Girls Come From

The doll with the captain's hat in the bar picture was just one of the girls. All these models were "morphed" from a base doll called Aiko 3. It is a third generation Anime doll. Lammy is made from Aiko 4, a fourth generation base doll, much more complex in it's wiring. The base doll is basically a wire frame like chicken wire, with skin covering that is textured and toned. Then we add a wig and clothes. Or make them transparent like Spooky Gal in the back. They also have other base dolls which they gave to us for free as DAZ3d.com gave us the program free. But we must buy the clothes and settings and props. They give us several free props and sets free each month. Artists create clothes and props and sell them. DAZ sells more advanced programs where you can make clothes and buildings and props, but they cost in the hundreds of dollars. Also this kind of program should be run on a desktop with advanced graphics cards added like a gaming computer. Most graphic cards cost from $100 on up around $500. It takes from a few minutes to sometimes hours for the computer to create or process one picture if it is very complex. That is why I like these third generation dolls so much, they a very simple and easy on the computer resources and load from the matrix quickly and are easy to manipulate and pose and quick to process in a picture.

Wide Angle Lens

Photography has been a hobby for me for fifty years. Whenever I had spare time, I'd go take walks for hours and take pictures, or look for things to take pictures of. I'd have to find something interesting and then try to get a shot of it. Now with this matrix of 3D files, I can get an idea in my head and then create it and take the picture instead of just happening upon something by luck. The cameras work just like real cameras, like setting wide angle lens or telephoto and getting the same effects as with a real camera. And the subjects are very patient and never complain, doing whatever I direct them to do or even how to dress or even morph them into strange creatures. I have to do the make-up, costume, lighting, set design, camera settings: all right here in my comfy chair. It's kind of fun, for me anyway.
