I decided to take a break from scripting and started looking at a few events. It’s three in the morning and there are classes going on for QAvimator. I hadn’t been to a class in a while, and I hadn’t used QAvimator in a couple years. Surprisingly, the author just released a new version this month after two years.
I arrived at the class to see Tempest Jarman giving instructions in both voice chat and text. A lot has changed since I last used it. It looks like I can now add props as references in the environment. It is a bit cleaner. One of the things I noticed is that the animation that I uploaded looked like the one I created. I used to have problems where things didn’t match.
Once we all created our custom shrug animations, we could use our own animation (upload is 10 L$), or she provided us with one for free to try out. The next part was to work with an animation that looped, so it needed a command to both start and stop the animation. Learning how to make the loops with the animation in Qavimator itself was pretty amazing with both a single frame and multiple frames. There was also a nice feature to clean up / optimize the BVH file as well to see the timeline easier.
