I've just started working on the upcoming mod 'Puppet Animations volume 02'.

 

So far it includes only a squatting animation for female and male characters, although I have some other ideas slated in my to-do list.

 

(video deleted. See post below)

 

I know there's already a crouch/duck sequence of postures in MS, althought not exactly what I needed for a project I'm working on, so this animation made a good first candidate to begin with.

Hello JAM...

If they could be pointing at something on the ground while turning to talk to each other that would fit nicely in scenes for someone tracking, looking at foot prints, ect. I'll add the Footprint addon this week. 

 

Great work with the new Chair. I'll be in line to get it when it goes public. I can see it in a dark comedy about Dentists or high pressure AMWAY sales people.

Hi Brian.

 

If they could be pointing at something on the ground while turning to talk to each other that would fit nicely in scenes for someone tracking, looking at foot prints, ect. I'll add the Footprint addon this week.

 

In its current state, no part of the puppet is "locked", apart from the legs and torso, so you may use the "look at" and "point at" generic actions for that purpose. Of course, it's not guaranteed that pointing at some things will work properly, depending on its relative position to the puppet, and that a specific gesture for this posture would be the the solution.

 

What I can tell you for sure is that one of the things I have planned is a series of animation for one puppet assisting another one lying on the floor, assessing her general physical status, and acting upon her. So far I have only a general idea but have to work out the details.

 

 

 

I can see it in a dark comedy about Dentists or high pressure AMWAY sales people.

You don't love them, I guess. I met one of them in the past, but she didn't dare to bother me: I think the expression on my face was eloquent enough.
