Useful Tips from the Horsemaker: SMD Import fix
Ayy guys.
Blender got updated recently, new features, new stuff, yay.
But as it often is with Source, when something new is added, something old fucks up.
With the new update, now upon import of any SMD, you will in 90% cases get this shit:

Well I told you before that SMD is an inferior absolute peasant format and DMX is master race, but in case you need to import some decompiled crap, worry not - the fix is possible.
First thing you gotta do on import is to check the "Preserve SMD Polygons & Normals" box:

Now the imported model will look okay but that's a lie - all the vertices are duplicated now, and it is actually twice as highpoly as it should be, and is absolutely uneditable and undetriangulatable.
The way to fix this is to go to Edit Mode, select the whole thing by pressing A, then click "Remove Doubles" on the left panel.

And that's... not over, now the model looks

The Last Update of Animation Cycle.…

Has links to almost every animation cycle that is free to use.

All of my [SFM Ponies] content is 100% free to use. It will alway be free to use, so if someone is trying to sell them, do not buy!! :onfire:


How do I pronounce your username?

Are you an animator?
No, but... I want to be a professional 3D animator one day. I am learning as I go. I plan to do more schooling after I get my BA.

If I use any your animation resource cycle or poster do I need to credit you?
You do not have to credit me, but crediting would be nice!

Can you alter the animation cycle resources?
Yes, you can alter any of the cycles and I do not mind, this is open for the community to use. The main purpose is a base to work off.

Do you make models?
No, I do not, but I am learning.

Do you do request?
No, I do not take request anymore. Unless it benefits the whole community for SFM-Ponies and I'll add it to my goal list.

Thank you for stopping by! =D
I'm finally free from all university projects. I will be preparing an announcement on my youtube channel for the upcoming updates and what is to come. 
Stay Tuned!

[SFM Resource]DMX Animation Resources Pony Pack V2
Updated: 3/15/2018

POSTER BY: :iconredaceofspades:RedAceOfSpades


Key: AC = Animation Cycle

This contains various animation cycles from all different animators and I try to organize them the best I could. There will be other people's animation cycles in there as well. None of these are perfect and most of them can be improved on but it's something. =) Anyways I hope you enjoy! :XD:

Let me know if you have questions if something off or mess up.
Also, The pack will continue to update on this submission for anything new in the making. This will be updated constantly.

How do I use the DMXs? (Argodaemon Tutorial)
Watch this tutorial!  Again, these are NOT save file DMXs.  These are animation files you import to a specific model.

I'm not putting argodaemon dmx resource pack v3 in this pack but if you need them here the link:

Enjoy! =)

Make sure to bake the model first to get the correct jiggle bones before importing the animation data onto the model. The jiggle bones are custom animated.
Walk Cycle: every one second / 24 frames
Time Spent: 12 hours rough (Learning that graph editor) - walk cycle)

Hello :) May I ask you a question? I know you don't take requests unless it benefits the sfm ponies group but could you also be open to doing animation cycles for non ponies as well? I created a sfm group where people can share their animation cycles and the group also will include step by step journals for the cycles. While I'm not a brony or a watcher of MLP, the SFM Ponies group did inspire me to create my group.

While I do have interest in different character models for animation cycle, I do not have the time to make them or income to do so. I'm sure there some animators out there that do animation cycles for different character models but giving out those animation cycles depends on the animator that is making them. Also, whether or not if they want to give out those set assets to the general public. 

I know there is a few asset already out there.

A Few Examples in the steam workshop.

Hi! my i ask you a question? I really need some help, im not sure how to animate a pony blinking in sfm, could you help me out? 
Gen-ma Featured By Owner Edited May 22, 2017  Student General Artist
A blink would be based on the action of the character with intention. For example, if the head turns quickly one pose to the next then add a blink. This will add more realism to pose instead of the character moving their head with no blink. I would suggest watching bloops animation as well as Argodaemon live streams. Bloops animation has a great understanding of animation and gives quick tips. Argodaemon has an archive of all the live stream as well the basic tutorials of SFM. 

In terms in actually doing a blink in SFM. There are some control sliders on the models for the enhanced and normal models. If you do not see this, the list probably in the unknown tab which I would download a script for it to organize the tabs. Zappy's Organizing Script 2.0
