"Thanks, Nick! Well, the temperature that the clay gets soft even before the lights are heating the entire room is going to come from two 50 watt halogens a couple of feet away (just because it's direct, concentrated light). I have found that…"

Lighting question for all you's guys

Hiya, folks.I'm curious what kind of lighting you use- halogen,  tungsten, LED, or compact fluorescent (spiral) bulbs. The main purpose of asking is that I am not sure how hard to design my clay for the animator who is going to use it. So far, there has not been much feedback about the clay's current hardness. It is designed to get soft around 90 degrees Fahrenheit and then be at its optimal workability and flexibility at that temperature until the animation lights are turned off. This results in the clay being very hard during the Winter at your average room temperature (70 degrees) until you work it in your hands for a bit like Chavant.  What inspired this? Well, in the Summer, my work space is like an oven and the clay that is just right during the winter becomes almost liquid under set lighting. The heat of the lighting is about the same as the temperature outside, but with the increased heat indoors due to hot summer days, it gets to be too much. The clay becomes like peanut…See More

Adobe Premiere/Effects animating a matte for rig removal

Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me or point me in the direction of a tutorial for animating a matte for rig removal in Adobe Premiere or After Effects? Here's a quickie little test I did of my puppet just to dip my feet into how his rig might work - http://youtu.be/JCu7V7AV19UI could try wrapping green foam around the rig, but I have also been told that perhaps there is a way to animate a matte around the walking puppet? Any tips you could share would be greatly appreciated!Thanks!See More
