Actually, the X2 is not good. Take the 7.0x3.

It is my understanding that only the Pro version can be used with Animator. We will have to wait and see when they post the link today.

I have been rebuilding my Pendulum animation (preparing for Twilight Render) and I have not seen a problem. I thought I did once but went back and redid my sequence and all worked well for me.

Yes same than Chris!
Rotation must be from a point outside the object, but result gives from a point inside the object! :o

OK - I understand. My rotations were from inside the object.

When you pick the pivot, the reference component containing the pivot is highlighted in orange. If you wish a pivot at top of model, then right click and select the option.

In the current version, there is a bug when you capture the Rotation movement, but the transformation is actually created correctly.

The camera tracking is not working for me - in particular object selection and playback. I am running on a MAC. Video attached.

There seems to be a bug when playing it.
Could you please open the Ruby console and see what it is.

EDIT: don't bother. I think I fixed it in v1.0y

Thanks

This is my first render with Animator using Twilight Render 2.5.


I used the lowest quality settings because of the render time. This one took about 1.5 hours. When I looked at a higher quality setting, the render time was MUCH longer.

At least it is a start.

@ntxdave: Did you try the twilight render settings 4) Animation 01. Low+ObjectAnimation or 02. Medium+...? The usually give much smoother and faster animation results. I can't test it because I have only twilight hobby.

I am trying another one now. I am trying the Animation 00 Preview Object Animation. That is going to take around 7hrs. We will see how that goes. When I looked at Easy 01 Low+ it I got the feedback that it would be a LONG time.

On the Twilight Render Forum, I go feedback that they are working on some presets that are the settings they used to produce the forklift sample they posted.

I am trying to remain optimistic that they/we will find a solution that produces some satisfactory results (both quality & time).

I just upgraded my license from Hobby to Pro specifically for this reason so I want to help (if I am capable ;) ) to find a solution that melds Animator and Twilight Render successfully.

As a late Beta-tester - I must say: great!
Very well thought out. Very comprehensive feature set.
Very stable and easy to handle. Detailed Video Tutorials.
It is recommended to study the video before or better parallel to the first Animation.
And the timeline is the hit - Incredible work has gone into the user interface.
So far, only a few small questions and comments:
- Positioner: How can I delete or overwrite Positions?
- Generation of videos: Is it possible to define start and end position with frame numbers? (In addition to the time indication)
- Tracking camera: In my understanding, it seems more like a following camera (the camera moves with the target).
- Rendering: Export to Indigo (RT) would be cool...

Here a small first example. The formula for the rotation of wheels is a good help especially in curves...
