Adding stuff to enhanced pony models. I have finished what I needed to add. I just need to make a tutorial on how they work because their is a lot features I have to cover. This video is just teaser for what is to come. Anyways Here are quick notes on the models can do, or what I been doing to them. Credits will be in full release.

++ Animated Textures
++ More eye varient
++ Body dirt texture (only on body atm) (will do hair, wings, hair, tail later on this depends on sfm memory, the models are already taxing)
++ Added body group to remove horn, wings, eyes, hair, tail (this was a thing already)
++ Added sindroom horns
++ Mirrored Manes
++ Got those presets to work
++ Pinkie Pie has 4 manes (straight and normal, plus the mirrored)

Neutral:
+- Uses element viewer
+- Reduce body texture from 4096KB to 2048KB

Cons:
-- SFM memory taxing (use wisely) 200MB~500MB when loading models. (all 6 loaded take 2GB SFM Memory) (Map and all 6 models takes 3GB)
-- Heirarchy tab is unorganized (Can get confusing make sure to name your sliders) (organization is key)
-- Loading each model takes time set up animated eyes (4 in total)
-- Some Jiggles are a little werid on mirrored manes
--crazy eyes texture UV map is odd make sure to view target is front.
--some presets break twilights wings (used a different winged model).

I been working on enh-models set for a bit to figure some things out. About a month in the process so far. I am using AeridicCore sfm source pack thing atm. Just adding a few things to sfm models. Also this will be its own models so they do not interfere with the original ones. 

I been changing some things in the qc code and making it work hopefully I will be done before by the end of the month for the release, and all credits will go to people that work on it and sources. 

So far I just been manipulating the setting in qc codes so some things would work. I do a modeling but not a whole lot. I been learning some new techniques as I go. 

Some testing with animated textures and model swapping with jiggle bones.

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!

So this is my last semester of university and I will be getting my B.A. in Multimedia, so hopefully I find a good job in the future, with the degree, I am going to get soon. I been super busy with homework and studying interactive design, after effects, premiere pro, photoshop, and HTML this semester but I should have Luna Flight cycle coming out within this month. Hopefully. I am not going to rush it and I will do my best to make the image appealing when it comes out on release. I had a few poster, I need to finish as well as they are just sitting there waiting to be done. Also, I will fix some of the older cycles after the semester is over that I have because I been learning a lot this past year for animation. 

There are two things I failed to do over the summer. Livestreams and the animation tutorial. I did live streams once a week for 2 weeks and then stop because of my schedule ended up getting busy with IRL stuff over the summer. Livestream in the future? Maybe. I have a hard time allocating dedicated time for it. The second one was tutorials on animation cycle. While I do have the knowledge from learning from others and self-teaching, I still need to scramble all my notes meticulous so it would make sense for a beginner to understand which I have not done yet and I didn't even start over the summer. I want to share this knowledge to the best of my ability and hopefully, it helps everyone out on making stuff for animation. I am learning more and more of the mechanics of animation every day. 

Lastly, I do have a plan for a longer project starting in December that I will be working on over the course of time.

Thank you for patience as a lot of things have been on hiatus for a long time, I just hope I get back in the swing of things once college is over. Thank you all for the watches and subscribes as I am overblown the amount of support from you guys! I will keep moving along and keep creating. =D

So I have an update on things regarding SFM Ponies Animation Cycle. Even though I enjoy making cycles for each different character and love making the movements; however, I will stop production of cycles after I finish the Male ponies, Luna cycle, and Bat Pony wings, because I will be very busy with school in my senior year of college and I will be a full student again. Last time I try balancing full-time and animation cycles and I got very stressed out. Not worth. In essence, I will try to finish all those cycles before I start my last year of college. Which is why I am going to challenge myself even further than I am used to after I finish up finals around December 21, 2016, to push out an animation cycle every two days. Do not worry I will not rush anything, if doesn't look right then I won't release it. Simple. It will be tough but not impossible, and preview images will be simple for the most part with no complicated scene build. I will still be doing animation after January but for different reasons. It will be mostly be helping friends out on their projects. Also, I might delve into non-pony related content and maybe learn another program.

I feel like there a lot of models out there that need animation cycle but in the end of the day, I do not have the resources to continue making them and the time. I think it's time for me to move away from animation cycles and practice other areas of animation. I thank the community for letting me have the opportunity to build animation cycles, while it been fun, I must resign from making any more animation cycles after January 2017, because I want to focus finishing strong for that college degree.


There will be one Pony SFM update Goals on my Journal list that I will constantly update. So look out for that I will leave a link here.

I thought it would be cool to document the work from start to finish of the dance. I also used argodaemon happy walk animation when they walking back for a split second in the final result.


I'm trying to translate the movements of MJ to a Pony. Very Difficult at the moment, but I get around it. Some poses are ridiculous in the beginning, but it was just to get the idea, and how to convey it, getting the extreme movement changes.


Rough Block Pass, I got some poses down so far, I might change a few things later, a lot pivoting so it will be challenging to smooth out the pivots. The next pass I'll add more detail and go into the graph editor to add more blocking stuff. 


This is the last block pass. There are some parts where I did not finish completely at the end and made some changes in the final render. Anyways, this was trying to get all the in betweens, and placements of the hooves.
 


This was smooth Pass, There some details that got lost from the spline since I use the motion editor a lot more than the graph editor. Still needs a lot clean up work involved, and jiggles weren't fixed yet. I was still coming up with the ending shot.


This was the second pass of the spline I still need to do some more cleanup work and some parts didn't look right, I end up changing a few more things, in the last pass.


This was the third pass and still needed to add the voices and the lipsync. Also added tail movement and fix the jiggle bones, in the final I  had to fix all the jiggle bones separately for each character with a quick smooth pass. Also, the hooves march instead of hop to each section.


This was the final pass, and this was added in the actual full video! There few places I wanted to improve on and add more detail as we wanted to add Big Mac and CMC (we added CMC but I didn't clean them up fully) however, we were running out of time. After a months work, this is the final result. XD Added lip sync and we used the instrumental version over the voice one. Change the hooves movement as well.

I don't how many hours since I do not keep track. Very rough estimate. 

~ 60 to 150 hours.

Those Jiggle Bones. XD

Updated: Rough Block Pass, I got some poses down so far, I might change a few things later, a lot pivoting so it will be challenging to smooth out the pivots. The next pass I'll add more detail and go into the graph editor to add more in-between. I might have to recenter her again, but I will fix on this on next pass. I had to change some of the move sets because twisting the body probably break the model, so I have compensate by giving more pivots in the movement. 

Working on this before Halloween. Michael Jackson Thriller Dance. I am doing the last 19 second of the dance. I'm trying to translate the movements of MJ to a Pony. Very Difficult at the moment, but I get around it. Once I have the next pass done, I'll upload it. Nothing is final.

Just wanted to show some process stuff that I am working on since this is going to be a longer project. I am trying out a different way of approaching things. I am following the example of Jesse Baumgartner, an animator, that show his process work, which is really cool to see how it all came together.


I have to say this my favorite Engy's Invention [SFM] it's really well done. Also the cartoon from Ren And Stimpy which is the Audio.

This will be done around Halloween. Michael Jackson Thriller Dance. I am doing the last 19 second of the dance. I'm trying to translate the movements of MJ to a Pony. Very Difficult at the moment, but I get around it. Once I have the next pass done, I'll upload it. Nothing is final. Also, using a little bit both of the Graph Editor and Motion editor. Some poses are ridiculous in the beginning, but it was just to get the idea, and how to convey it, getting the extreme movement changes first then work the in-between.
