one thing you can do to help "seams" like that: you can have two sets of "uv coordinates" that are rotated or otherwise offset from each other and blend between them as needed

I watched the visual effects featurette for The Green Knight (2021) and it turns out several of the effects were made in blender. also that movie has far more digital effects shots than I assumed

I bought a Wacom tablet (no screen, just an input) and am learning how to texture finally! It's not as hard as I thought it'd be, UV Unwrap is magic.

Iím in rigging hell. Pray for me, brothers

edit: OK so I made a bit of a breakthrough even though it doesn't look like much:

https://i.imgur.com/hizSbsP.mp4
I'm trying to get a stop-motion workflow going, and recently purchased FreeIK. FreeIK offers a pretty amazing set of keyable constraints so you can pose the model without building any rigging beyond the deformation bone chain. It's hard to explain but it's the closest thing I've been able to find to Raf Anzovin's "ephemeral rigging" setup--changing the bone hierarchy any time you want, forward/backward/inverse kinematics on any bone at any time.

If I can get the base armature a bit better, it allows for almost perfect stop-motion style animation by just directly grabbing the model.

that looks great! nice little wind up, drag, and follow through. kind of ironic you had to pay for something called freeik

Thanks! FreeIK costs $30 but worth every penny IMO, in fact I'm kind of biased toward paid add-ons because the developers are usually more serious about support and development, that seems to be the case here. The dev is working on the next version which will have visually settable angle constraints.

Also I'm Old and grew up in the days of very expensive software, so to me buying a seriously powerful plug-in for ONLY $30 feels like I'm getting away with something. TVPaint cost like $800 when I bought a license, now the equivalent 2D app for the iPad is $50.

edit: OK starting to get the hang of this.

Fuck you say?


I showed my wife Worthikid's Captain Yajima without telling her it was made in Blender and she genuinely thought it was claymation, which isn't unfair because so did I until i got my goddamn mind blown

The nice thing about psuedo claymation is that mistakes don't stand out nearly as much and actually add to the charm. You've made an excellent start

How are you doing the stop motion effect? Are you doing something with the interpolation, or are you setting up individual frames?

EDIT: This is a common enough thing that we should have an interpolation type for it. Like, it snaps the curve to every frame, or ever other frame, or every three frames.

Just keying manually. FYI you can set an f-curve modifier to a discrete stepped value.

Oh well I'll be damned that was exactly what I was looking for and works perfectly.

Would probably be less ignored if you post it in June.
