God-Mother

God-Mother from Nina Paley on Vimeo.

Here it is, the intro/prologue to Seder-Masochism. Uploaded at 1080p instead of 4K because I’m sure I’ll fuss with it still.

It is by far the slowest-paced thing I’ve ever animated. Be patient. Best at full screen.

Animated in Moho Pro.

I spent all day grappling with a bug in Moho. It was distorting shapes on duplicate layers, making it impossible for me to do my work. Hours and hours spent banging my head into a wall. I submitted a bug report and the corrupted files and…the techs could’t see the distortions. And in fact, when I re-opened my files, the distortions were gone, even though they were absolutely there before. I made new files and the same distortions occurred. But when I quit Moho and reopened the very same files – that were absolutely distorted and not just in the work area, but on renders too – the distortions were gone. So I finally have my workaround, and it only took a day of agony and despair.

Now I can duplicate layers again, so here are some horse gifs.

Floaty Dreamy Prehistoric Horse

More Moho, which I like a lot more since abandoning “target bones”. I realize floaty dreamy movement is usually a rookie mistake, but in this case I’m trying to make the animals look floaty and dreamy. I actually need to make the deer and rhino more floaty and dreamy. The bear I have to make over from scratch.

Deer

What I’m learning in Moho Pro: Target Bones are more trouble than they’re worth. No target bones on this deer, less automation and more control.

Bone rigging and animating in Moho Pro. I’m still new to these techniques and I have some bugs to work out. See Victor Paredes’s excellent tutorial on rigging and animating quadrupeds here.
