Guys,

Is it possible to have a T-Rex plugin which just stand there roaring to itself and looking down.

What I want as an end result is myself standing next to this huge T-Rex whilst it roars itself and me looking round at it occasionally whilst commenting.

Cheers,

Curran

I'll add it to my list, should be done in about 3 days or so.

If i make it roar, it would be loader than your speach ? because i would loop it, so it would be say 300 frames, then repeat so you would need to time your talking

I might be able to do only the T-Rex part. No sound. AlamDv doesn't support sound so I don't know how the heck to make sound in a program that does not support sound. I'll try I guess.

I would have done the t-rex opening mouth, then whoever uses it would have to dub he roar on.

Well I just made it but I am having ALOT of trouble with Alpha Channels. How do you do them? I looked at what Schwar or whatever said in another post, but there was something missing. I have Paint Shop Pro and I did everything the psot said to, and when I went to save it says that there will be no Alpha channel saved when I already saved the alpha channel. Maybe you should just do it because I am having trouble. Or if you could help me with Alpha channels, that would be great. BYe. And I guess I'll go try again.

Hi

i've uploaded the t rex ( just waiting for malone to add it )

It cuts off in the middle of the roar, i made it 500 frames but alamdv won't allow that size.

Let me know if you need it changed, i made it looking down like you said.

try that if,
it's the first one in the plugins section ( at time of press )
if you still can't find it, click on my prifile button, then look at the plugins i made.
it's called standing t-rex animation.

please feel free to vote for it. lol

Thanks

It's a slow way i make them.
1st i animate it
I have to save as bit map, then key out background
on every single frame, the whole lot take about 2 hours from start to uploading. ( i know i have far too much time on my hands lol
there is a cheat way which is to save as a tiff when i animate, but you don't get all the detail.

Just your comment alone gives me the drive to keep " pluggin away"
