Q-AND-A

anonymous asked:

Fun fact! Did you know that dogs are technically omnivores, but only just? Yes, they do eat certain plants. However, they are so dependent on meat that it is almost impossible to get them to be vegan without having them eat whole meals of just supplements. Always talk to a trained vet before trying a new diet on your pet, and if you need them to be vegan, get a tortoise.

anonymous asked:

In the book Why People Believe Weird Things, Michael Shermer talks about Ayn Rand and her inner circle. TLDR version is that one by one, her followers fell out of favor as each committed some increasingly small offense against her beliefs until her inner circle was no more. Does this remind you, as it does me, of the "progressive" movement, which ousts people from within for "problematic" behavior? Just a thought I had and wanted to get some input.

This is an excellent analogy. The selfish old cow and the social justice assholes really are one and the same (in case you couldn’t tell, I’m not too fond of Ms. Rand).

What is the best thing about being friends with Taylor Swift ?

Here is what Lewis’s filters look like on his hair.

His hair is divided up into 4 pieces, the main front pompadour, the spiky back, and 2 sideburns (*snicker* “sideBURNS”).  His front view is the only one to really have both sideburns at a time though.

Each piece is set up in movie clip with the filter settings you see here.

Depending on the size of the overall puppet symbol (in this case, the overall size of the symbol of Lewis), these filters may need to be tweaked, as evidently Flash can’t automatically handle when the symbols are resized, so depending on the shot it can make his hair look almost pure white if shrunk.

This isn’t quite the same as OTHER fire effects seen in the video, but this seemed to fit Lewis quite well.

Hrm, this is a tricky question as the exact answer can vary wildly depending on the person and/or situation and/or program.  The terminology you use in your question does not apply to Flash very well, as it sounds like you are referring to more of a bone structure, which I think applies more to After Effects?  While Flash *DOES* have a bone set up function, its TERRIBLE and is very rarely used, if ever.

I’ll try to use an example from my Flash file to illustrate how I do most of my head turns.

Here’s the shot of Lewis turning his head while in his coffin.  If you look on the window that shows the current scene and symbol, you’ll notice how I have the symbol set up.  This is Scene 1 -> Main Scene -> Scene 5 Camera -> Lewis Shot 5-5 -> Lewis Shot 5-5 Head Turn Bob -> Lewis Shot 5-5 Head Turn.

So in the screenshot, we are currently inside the “Lewis Shot 5-5 Head Turn” symbol.  The “Lewis Shot 5-5 Head Turn Bob” symbol contains everything you see in this time line and is animated to give him the head bobbing motion found throughout the video (not shown in these screenshots). 

(For referecne sake, the Grey lines in the timeline are keyframes, the Blue lines are Tweens.)

In this specific case, I have two of Lewis’s head orientations, his 3Q (3 Quarters) view and his Front view.  This applies to everything, his eyes, brow, nose, and skull.  Each of these has their own 3Q and Front View symbols.  I start off with the 3Q sybmols.  Further in the time line, I have the symbols tween their way over to better match the Front view symbols.  Right as the 3Q starts to get close enough, I delete the 3Q symbols and trade in the Front view symbols (in different layers to make it easier to organize.)  These Front view symbols are tweened over to the side to give the illusion that Lewis is still turning his head over.  The animation ends with the symbols tweening over to the straight on Front view.

When put together, it creates a semi-3D effect of the head turning.  This can be tricky to pull off sometimes, and generally speaking a head turn is easier to get away with if it happens faster.  Regardless of speed though, it retains the same fundamentals seen here, where you tween the head pieces until its ready to swap over to a different orientation of the head (Side -> 3Q -> Front, for instance). A good ease-in/ease out is also ESSENTIAL in making this look natural.  

Apologies if this all seems a bit overwhelming, as its kind of a tricky thing to just explain in this way.  Regardless this hopefully gives you some impression on how I do things, at least as far as head turns go.

We’ve been hanging out with We Are The in Crowd this summer on the Vans Warped Tour and having a ton of fun. With several early bus calls for long drives in the first leg of the tour, it was the perfect time to get cozy on the bus and give the band a little homework. It’s true, Mike got fork lifted while in a porta-potty that morning, and Tay would eat brussel sprouts for the rest of her life. Wait what? (We’d have gone with pizza.) Have a look at the rest of our Q&A above and check out the Vans tent signing schedule. See you on the road!
