Hey Dezy - What software are you using? I'm a 3D animator by trade and may be able to help you out. ;-)


thanks for the offer but due to the fact that I am using an old version of Maya {one that you can no longer get working as they stopped supporting it} [purely because I like its interface] to make the 3D models before I import them into a compatible video game engine so I can animate them makes accepting aid quite difficult.

(that and that there are no solid designs for most of the characters I have created beyond the images I have of them in my mind. {I suck at drawing with pens and pencils so I can't put my ideas down in that way, but I can build them in 3D})

I've had a lot of work to do recently though and as such I have lacked time to do any more work on this project {which is annoying to me as I have only three more models and a pair of environments to build before I can focus on animating, adding voices and sound effects, before releasing the first episode.}[I can then start working towards getting the models and environments required for episode 2 constructed, and thus casting some more character voice actors.]

As I've almost finished the 3D models for both Galrauch and the Claw now I expect to have the first episode animated and ready to be used in about a months time.

I am still looking for VA's but I thought that allowing people to listen to the voice sample my VA has given me for the predacon Galrauch may generate some more voice submissions.

A swift update.

The models are done {just about, galruach need his head modified slightly and minor details need to be addressed to some of the already completed models. I'm kinda swamped with work at the moment and so I won't be doing any pic updates for a while but I will provide some [taken in the environments they are being animated in] eventually.}

I have done most of the animation for the autobot parts of the episode but there will be a delay in getting it finished due to lack of voice actors. [I'm temped to go and register over on TFcog once I'm finished doing the animation, editing and recording of the episode. As TFW2005.com yielded zero VA's. :cry:]

where did you post on TFW2005?
I didn't see it.

usually the auditions happen in the video discussion forum even though that doesn't exactly make sense.. lol

a casting call vid on youtube can help too.

btw who still needs filled? I would like to see if I can try another set of auditions I would like to try and have another role.

The thread on TFW2005.com is in the transformers fan art section.

I'm working on a title sequence for the series that I will just tack a segment of Galrauch {and his voice actor} speaking to those who watch it asking for additional Voice actors.

As for who still needs to filled for episode 1:-

autobots
ultra magnus
rakx
grimlock {I had a VA for Grimlock but he pulled out due to reasons known only to him}}

decepticons
shadow stalker

my new grimlock voice is much improved.
I have also been working on my Robert Stack Magnus. it's sounding decent in my head.

I'll record it for you monday.

as for Rakx I read some of your fic.

what are you looking for? he's almost a Decpticon isn't he? like Blades... almost to blood thirsty to be a good guy.

I had to redo parts of my Galrauch model after problems arose in animating it.

I'll show the full model once I'm done with redoing the parts. For now you can have an evil eye :wink:

Hell I've had a LOT of delays with this project. :cry: I am still working when I can on this though and as such:-

Animation test:- (no sounds)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXgFcu3xuMY

(The first episode is almost done now, just have to clean up some of my clips and adjust some camera angles, before I add in all of the sound effects and such.)
