Catching up on Solar and Micro-hydro energy...:)

I got tagged in a conversation with Peace and the Stovers of Owl creek Gazette about solar energy, and showed a new site Sun Electronics and revisited one of my favorites RealGoods. Both have been around a while and have lots of information for Off-grid renewable living.

I was up until 9:30am last night (yes, all night) working on my animated Dude Sr. (Anime Studio Pro 9.5) and made some real progress...:) Kind of on a weird schedule lately. Once caught up on the daily events and happenings, I'll be back at it. I hope to start a render tonight if I can make it all work...:)

Catch you later and have an awesome evening!

Up all night learning and researching.

I was up all night learning some great Anime Studio techniques/tutorials from Incredible Tutorials and Content Paradise. Awesome! I was also trying to understand more music theory and specifically how to play piano notes on the guitar. This was more for visuals of the finger positions on the guitar. I'll be working on switch layers for one of my characters. Switch Layers are image/vector layers created for making quick transitions of poses in graphic software.  This is just one way animators can make different phonemes (mouth poses) to make it appear an animated character is speaking specific words/sounds.

I'm trying to figure out how to make my character play the actual notes on a guitar. Next step after creating guitar fingering poses, is to make the poses transition in realtime to a MIDI/audio track...:) I've watched some really cool animations by Animusic that do this with custom software, but haven't figured out how to make this work in Anime Studio or After Effects, yet.

It's cold outside so I'll stay indoors and keep working on animation, music and the MOA Tarot deck. Mostly the animation, and once I start rendering, the Tarot deck some more.

Have an awesome evening...:)

Things to do...:)

Busy Thursday! Errands, animation, and other stuff to do. Let the fun begin!

Found some cool stuff for my music software.

I've been using Cakewalk Sonar X1 for audio production, and like most of my software and equipment, I'm just finding out how to use it...:) I tried Amplitube a long time ago, and loved it but it timed out. I just found out I could unlock it today plus I got a couple other freebies from IK Multimedia. Musicians First. Cool new toys to create with! Yay! Going to go split some firewood then back to animating the Dude with AnimeStudio and trying to integrate that with Adobe After Effects. I need more computing power and hard drive space bad! Any willing contributors??? Dreaming of an Alienware supercomputer and a few LaCie 4big Quadra 12TB RAID hard drives would do...:) We've had fairly good luck with the LaCie's so far. We did set one up wrong and lost 3 years of data, so some of the replacement LaCie 4big 9000264 4TB Spare Drive Bare Drives would be nice also. If configured correctly, they have been work horses. Have an awesome day!

You could find yourself mentally acute and in a problem-solving mood. However,
there is a real possibility that the decisions you make today and the solutions
you find may have to be re-done tomorrow.

Website fixes...

I had to fix/update some html/css on the Psychedelic Aire website. It should be more mobile friendly (maybe?)...:)

Thank you Peace for the helpful web link (for reference when ya get back to workin' on your site).

Going to work on Animation "Dude" some more.

Keep creating.

Finished one more MOA Tarot Deck card, and the arms, legs and feet of my AnimeStudio character. Peace had some great suggestions for animations to work on as well. Posted a new tune Octagon at my Reverbnation site and should be able to keep working on the latest CD. Much to-do! Have an awesome day!

More snow...:) Good day for creative endeavors!

It's been snowing for a while as Peace has said. I'm waiting for a little more before moving it...:) Looks like a good day for working on the MOA Tarot Deck and other creative stuff. Only had one number for the Powerball...:( Hopefully, we'll make a great living creating cool stuff for your entertainment! It's so weird how much cat fur accumulates on our stuff??? Have an awesome day!

Cut firewood, back to Tarot Deck...:)

I cut some more firewood and worked on The Magician card for the Moments of Awareness Tarot Deck. Back to work on the Tarot card, then maybe some animation with AnimeStudio Pro. I watched a cool tutorial on animating fractals on Adobe AfterEffects I'd like to try for more Psychedelic Aire music videos. So much to create. Have an awesome day!
