hello lordaardvark. Any chance for an update of your daz animation rig in the sense of new animations any time in the future? :)

LordAardvark

I don't have any plans to update DARP. Its intended function was predominantly to provide a handful of walk-cycles and dance animations to expediate animation development. Toward that end, I think it serves its purpose wonderfully. I've yet to find it lacking in any quantifiable capacity.

do you know when chakwas can be part of the wheel again? i think i do not remember what exactly you said when the wheel had choosen her. Is she banned or vanished or something?

LordAardvark

Thanks for reminding me! Next Wednesday, assuming someone reminds me, I will nab the MELE Explorer tool and see if I can't extract the new Chakwas from Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

That's the reason why she was knocked off the Wheel - there were no good versions of her floating on the tubes, and I decided to wait until MELE had extraction tools and I can extract her from the game myself. I think it might be time to do just that.

Do you plan on doing anymore projects starring the lovely Elizabeth in the future?

M-maybe...

Did you still working on that Elsa & Anna canon body sfm model ?

LordAardvark

Unfortunately, no.

I started work on rebuilding them as part of the upgrade to DazV5.5, because the topology was awful. I forgot just how much work I had to do just to get them functional the first time around, that I lost all interest in it. I have better things I can spend my time on.

If I ever find myself needing them for a project, they'll get rebuilt for it. Until then, I don't expect them to ever progress past whatever the last beta release was. Just too much baggage involved.

What do you feel is your favorite character to animate?

LordAardvark

Elizabeth is always a joy to work with.

No she doesn't. You're checking the wrong category.

Hello L.A. I am planning a little mass effect video. I really would love to have customizable Asari models for it. You told us months ago someday you will think about reanimate your old asari models. Since your scedule is very much full I was wondering if I could suggest those Asari for the wheel? Is that something you could see happen as a wheel related model? Anyway I would be very grateful if you consider it. :) dear Greetings.

LordAardvark

Once Jack's textures are done, Liara's textures are likely the next to be done. And once Liara's textures are done, they will be used as a basis for other Asari.

Until then, Liara and other Asari just kinda can't really be done. At least not to my satisfaction.

im the anon who asked about the model not appearing and thanks to you i fixed it ; BUT do you happen to have tutorials on how to use your models and your scripts ? i saw some of your tutorials on YT but they aren't what i'm looking for (except the installation one, it really helped). anyways thanks for your time and your work, i'll try not to bother you any further

LordAardvark

Generally I only make explicit tutorials for tools that are non-trivial to set up and use, such as the Gentle Auto-Lipsync Workflow.

For things that are either simple Windows operations like "merge folders with same names, yes to overwrite when prompted", or simple SFM operations like "right-click the model and choose the script from the IK list", I don't really see much value in throwing my hat into the ring, when there are already near-decades' worth of better tutorials by better speakers than me out there.

That being said, if whoever is reading this is looking for some videos on those simple SFM operations, then I really cannot recommend enough Zachariah Scott's tutorial videos, and Jimer Lins' SFM tip-of-the-day videos. In my opinion, they are all pretty much essential viewing for navigating SFM competently. I think you may find that most of the questions you're looking to me for answers for, are already addressed in videos by these two wonderful creators, and answered in a far better capacity than I ever could respond to them.
