The Animation Playhouse
Intended for anyone interested in Character Animation and Movie Making
A home for Carrara and Daz animators
WELCOME ! I have brought together in one place, many of the internet links gathered over time that provide tutorials hints and techniques as well as links to other resources that could be useful for animation and most importantly - links to videos as examples of what others are doing.
May they inspire you in some way !
Ttutorials are for Carrara Software Animation but topics such as effects,dynamics, lipsync etc are included too . In fact any tool or technique useful to making movies.
Here we are thinking of a movie as anything with a story line or message. It could be a drama, advertising short or product demo etc and would have a beginning, middle and end with title , credits and sound.
I hope over time many more tutorials can be added as and when people give their time to make them.
It is rare for any movie to be made entirely with one software, People use the strengths of the different packages they have but Carrara is a great software and I hope this site will in some way encourage Daz to improve Carrara's animation tools and generate enthusiasm for users to use them.
An "Ideas" section is being added soon so that you may make suggestions.
In my own search for inspiration I found it quite difficult to come up with "movies" made with Carrara. The videos included here meet a loose criteria of -
At least 2 minutes duration with Soundtrack,Title and a Story Line.
Sometimes, if effects or animation are strong then rules above are relaxed. The intention is that the movie entertains and/or demonstrates software capabilities.
Videos made with other software are also included because we can learn from them or just be inspired by what others are doing.
BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE FEATURES SECTION FOR SOME SPECIAL LINKS.
