No hard feelings... But how do you deal with stolen paid/exclusive reward content on the internet ?

LordAardvark

By ignoring it and moving on with my life. I've more important things to worry about.

This might be a weird question, but... have you ever thought of doing animations with lactation?

LordAardvark

Ain't my thing.

Is there a reason why Sonya is no longer on the voting list? I also swear there was someone else as well but can’t remember. Do you take some of them off?

LordAardvark

As per the "What Is It" section on the voting page, footnote 3:

[3] The exact algorithm for culling is that any model who has been submitted for at least 3 voting cycles and received less than 50% of the winning model's votes is automatically removed from the database. This is to keep the voting system clean from clutter of models that no one other than the submitter cares about. Only the popular models that people want stay in the system, so that eventually they can all (theoretically) get a spot on the Wheel and have a fair shot at getting made.

Sonya et all failed to meet this threshold, and so were automatically removed from the system. Anyone can feel free to resubmit them at any time.

Will Hiveship be cancelled because of Nintendo DMCA?

LordAardvark

No.

It was 99.5% original content anyways, down to the fact that Ordagon and I designed a literal entire roster of unique aliens for it.

It will simply be moved to an original IP, same as the remaining entries in the Phazon hexalogy, which similarly was predominantly original content.

Hello Lord. I was curious when you were planning on making more Dva stuff. The mini stream project you were working looked very promising.

LordAardvark

RHE4 will be sometime next year. The exact timing is in the air, though, since I have plans for another Overwatch project near the end of this year, and I don't like having two projects from the same universe too close together in terms of consecutive releases. Though I've released Rabbit.Hole episodes with just one video between them (due to cancellations) before, so, who knows. Maybe I'll do that again.

Dear Aardvark! I'm almost done with the Blue Star , there's only a little post-production left, and a fine adjustment. It'll be ready tomorrow, not sure, but almost. Can I transfer it somehow? Maybe via Discord? Because I already have a profile there too. I also made a Twitter page for myself to make it more accessible. It would be nice to see that the text goes through your page as well. I've already provided my contact information. I hope we can do it normally..We will discuss the rest later. THX for everything! , MonsterFanBoy

LordAardvark

Yeah feel free to add me on Discord. You can find the link to the server on my Patreon's about page, then just add me from there.

Sorry for the delay. I thought I answered this already.

Wow, 32 DOA ladies? I know you might've answered this, but now I'm REALLY curious about what that project is about... are they all gonna get boned?

LordAardvark

It's just a technical project.

I have a long-term cinematic universe / project planned for the original 14. Decided that since I am rebuilding them and using systems to optimize the workflow, to say nothing of the fact that the new Prototype 3 also supports the ability to effectively build them as canon, I might as well just go all the way and build everyone.

hi . about : ( \1 I am always on the lookout for ways to optimize my workflow. Speeding up lip-sync has long been a holy grail. Today, I found it. The key is a program called Gentle ( https://lowerquality.com/gentle/ ) which, given audio and a transcript, does high-precision phoneme extraction. ) how can i download auto lip sync script as a rig file .

LordAardvark

You wait until I finish it and release it.

And in the meantime, you can figure out how you're going to resolve the fact that Gentle - the program that does all of the heavy lifting - is Mac only.

Hey I’ve been a fan I’ve your videos for about 4 months and I was wondering if blue stars is dead i haven’t been around long enough to find anything so if you do reply to this thank you

LordAardvark

Not dead. Just very far away. Consequence of doing big projects by myself. Things get prioritized, and some things fall down the list farther than others.

Your DazV5 Scarlet appears to have a few stray vertices that are weighted to her left butt bone instead of her right, causing them to stretch oddly in certain positions. Just thought you should know, since it is the only glaring issue from the current release.

LordAardvark

Yeah I had someone bring it up already. I'm honestly surprised it happened. Only thing I can think of is that the skinwraps used weren't 100% accurate, and so it ended up skewing the weights around. The ass is meticulously rigged to get around Source's 3-vertex limit. So something even being slightly off is enough to cause that.

DazV5 as a whole is literally straddling the limit of what is possible in Source. It's honestly like walking on eggshells.

Hopefully Pragma's filmmaker aspects will come to fruition in the coming months, so I can finally build DazV6, which will restore all of the original weights I had to compromise for DazV5. Naturally, DazV6 would be Pragma-only - SFM is getting left by the wayside once DazV6 and Pragma come around.
