Hello to everyone. We would like to invite you to come take a preview of www.NewEventsOnline.com.
We are in the process of posting hundreds, and eventually thousands, of FREE bvh files for Poser/DAZ and vns files for iClone. Although the site is not “officially open,” we would sure appreciate your input. There are a few things we need to learn early on: Are the files working for you? Are there specific motions you would like to see? Are there broken links? That sort of thing. We also need to learn if our site will stand up to all the download activity we expect to see, so don’t be hesitant in taking whatever you think you will need in the future.
Our “contact us” button is only listed on the home page for now, so here’s the direct link for your convenience: http://www.neweventsonline.com/securimage/contact_us.html
Please be patient, understanding that we will not be able to respond to your posts at this time, but we would still appreciate your patient input. All of our time is being concentrated on converting or creating files to/for vns for the iClone community, and it is a very time consuming process. We have a big goal, and it is going to take a little time to “get there.” Since several people are already working on CMU files, we have started with animazoo and mocap data.com and our own private stock of motion files. (Take a look at the “Gestures” folder in the mocapdata.com section. They’re great!) Eventually, the site will also contain the CMU files, so you will be able to find most anything you are looking for in one location.
An extra-nifty feature is that preview files are available for all files. You will be able to see the file in action before downloading.
FYI, the bvh files that are posted for mocapdata.com are not the original files. They are translated bvh files we have created as part of our conversion process. We do not profess to be iClone “pros,” but they are working really well for our productions and we are hoping they will suit your needs for your videos too. Nonetheless, everyone’s needs for their particular video are a little different, so obviously a little tweaking will need to be done to make them fit your needs. For example, most of the files, at least the mocapdata files, start and end in a T-pose. They can be easily modified by opening up a timeline and right-clicking on the motion file (Perform button) where you want the motion to start and end and clicking “break.” This breaks the motion file into segments. Then you just delete the start and end portions that you do not want to use and slide the remaining portion to where you want the action to take place.
We are also planning on posting video overlay files in QuickTime format (with alpha transparency) that can be added to your iClone movie in a linear video editor to add explosions, laser beams, portal effects – that sort of thing – and we would like to know if you would consider such files to be of use to you.
We’re not at all sure how this is all going to work out, but with your friendly feedback early on, it will help us anticipate our needs and adapt accordingly. Thanks for your time!
