BlenderPeople Development

Tracking the development of the BlenderPeople script suite.

Okay -- I couldn't wait for next week. Here's a video...

1.5MB Xvid video -- 20 seconds


I made the walkcycle a bit goofy, with a lot of back and forth sway, as well as the right arm held up and in, as though injured, just to show off how this thing uses YOUR walkcycle, with all of your nice secondary motion, with footsteps that lock down to the ground with absolutely zero slipping.

I'm really excited. This is the solution I needed to the killer problem that vexed me for months.

As for implementation within BlenderPeople, each activity (walk, run, attack, flee, etc.) can be associated with an arbitrary number of Actions. So, you could have, say, four different style walkcycles for a single class of Actor. When it autowalks, each half-step could draw from a different random Action, chosen from it's list of availables, giving you great non-repetitive motion.

Of course, the Action Noise bit I'm working on will do something similar, so...

Excellent. How about some sit down - stand up, get down - get up style of motions also? And how about some usual gestures? Anyway excellent work. Keep up.
 
Wow, that video is positively brilliant! Looks a lot like some of the early Massive tests I saw.

I'm curious to see how multiple actors start working together. I'm loving the progress -- please keep going!
 
I was wondering, since I'm not a part of the dev gang, will this be in the next Blender release or will you release it independently (like BlenderPeople 0.6)?
 
This is really exciting. My studio is in the second official week of pre-production on a indie feature that's using a Blender-based pipeline and I'm very excited about the possibilities Blender People could offer.

Keep up the great work!
 
Absolutely Fantastic! I've been following your progress for over a year and I am still in awe over what you've been able to accomplish. Keep up the good work.
 
I finally saw the video. Fantastic!
