What are the underlying rules behind placing a control line?

Thyme,

I've spent a couple of days immersed in Seamless3D and I've gotten the impression that "control lines" cannot be drawn arbitrarily, but are instead placed by some "rules."

For example, starting with the patch file from the Human Head in 30 sec tutorial, and attempting to add a control line on the front face, I notice that if I pick a point along any ray, the resultant control line is a ring, no matter which ray I pick.

However, if I pick a point along a (circumferential) segment, I notice that the control line is a "Vee" of varying angle, depending on which segment I pick, even though all the segments on a circumference appear to have identical properties.

What I'm saying, I think, is that if I understood the rules for how control lines are placed, I could then, possibly, develop a model by working with control lines instead of nodes.

It is also possible that the rules guiding control lines will prove too simplistic or restrictive for this approach, but even so, an understanding of how they're generated would inform the use of the tool.

Thank you.

Seamless3d for Linux, Android & other OS using Qt

I have a new page for the Seamless3d port to Qt here:

http://www.seamless3d.com/qt/

From this page you can download the ported files for compiling with Qt.

I cover some of the issues encountered and the instructions I use for compiling.

NoSpam - Discussion with Powerful

Dear Thyme, from now on, let's keep all our discussion under a single topic (this).
This is to avoid yo-yoing up and down on threads.
Last discussion was about SDL, OpenGL, SDL_Net and porting to Android, iOS, MACOS and Linux.

So, please, share your progress here.

I still have lots of ideas to propose, if you're interested, which I'll share as you're done with this.

By the way, let's KISS and post under a single, easier to follow, discussion.

SeamLess3D with OpenGL and SDL

Dear thyme, I'm outsourcing a port of SeamLess3D to OpenGL, SDL and SDL_Net.
This will make me pay eur 80/week for almost 20 weeks.
I hope this is interesting for you, and please, if you're already intentioned to do the same, please tell me before tomorrow, as I could save money.

Ideas

Dear thyme, I'd like to share some thoughts and ideas i have about seamless 3d.

Because it has its scripting language, it can be used as a game engine more or less.

it already support multiple users on the same server (chat), so it also support multiplayer.


what it is really missing is a physics engine. I'm going to send you info about (see attachment)

Then, but this is far than required, artificial intelligence. I'm sending you info on this too.

As for the text to speech, it's nice to have it in, but it could be better if user can adjust, per phoneme, lenght and pitch, thus creating a natural like voice by scratch.
Try having a look at festival speech engine and search for its sing mode.

Done. Please update me

What to learn

Hello everyone.
I'd like to know what should I learn to be able to make an application like Seamless 3D.
Consider I'd like it to run on mobile and desktop (Windows, Linux and Mac, iOS, Android) so the language of choice would be C#/Xamarin or C++/Qt.
Then, I'd also learn OpenGL ES as graphic API.
Beside this, what else should I learn? Please, list thoroughly.

Seamless everywhere

Hello thyme.
I'd like to help this project grow, and even if I'm not a real developer, I could be useful in various ways.
My ieea is to get rid of mfc in turn of qt, use the qt l10n system and migrate directx to opengl.
I didn't read all the code, so maybe i'm missing something.

Beside, i would like to export svg from seamless, the same way i export x3d.

New version Seamless3D

Hi Thyme

It has been a long time since we did not heard from you. And I got really impressed when I came here to your forum and realized that you actually updated Seamless3D to a new version.

And, by the way, the new head looks sooo much improved from your previous ones Happy ... I think it has something to do with the new additions/improvements done to the software (besides the time you had invested doing things with it)

Congratulations really. You are a persistent person, and very organized I believe. And that is a good thing!

Best regards

Seamless3d 3.004 Ready for download

http://www.seamless3d.com/download/3.000.html#_3.004

Sorry, I had planned to upload at the end of December but until you make a list of all the important things worth noting over the last 2 years you don’t realise just how many issues have been addressed.

To help explain some of the new features I decided I might as well write some short tutorials which ended up being much better than is possible with a few hours investment which delayed things further but I am glad I took the extra time to do this.

There are still a number of bugs I very much want to fix but because this version has significant improvements, it seems a good idea to upload what I have now for the new year.

Stuck at the first step - HELP!!!

Most likely it's just me, so pull my leg as much as you wish, but please TELL ME HOW TO GET STARTED!
I downloaded Seamless3D, installed it (on WinXP) smoothly, run it and... nothing.
A window full of interesting icons to perform quite intuitive functions, but I couldn't find a way to start a new job. I looked for a hint in the tutorials but those I found seemed to start a few steps above my level - I couldn't even locate the "start new smls" button!
And I'm supposed to be a 10-years 3D veteran...
I'm running (so to speak) ver. 3.003 - can it be the wrong one?

VINTAGEWEAR NEEDED AND SEAMLESS DRESSING

Hey guys-

Just downloaded Seamless 3D again and have some questions:

Is is possible to import characters and clothing and dress my characters using Seamless?? Asking because I am making a 3D animation film that takes place in the mid to late 1960s. It's a film about the life of Jim Morrison {of the Doors}. So I need to be very accurate. Been using both Mixamo Fuse and Autodesk character generator to create the characters. But here is the clincher. Part of this film takes place between 1947-49 and 1960. And I'm having a heck of a time finding things that should be pretty basic. For instance a nurse uniform from the 1940s. A nun's habit {neither Fuse or Character Generator have either}. A policeman's uniform with hat {Fuse has it, Character Generator doesn't}. A plaid jumper dress {neither of them have this}. Olive drabs {Autodesk has them and Fuse doesn't}, housedress {neither of them have that} etc etc etc etc...I know that most of you are prbly shhoting for the ultra-modern and unreal. But is this possible??

PS: Attached is a photo of a vintage housedress from the 1940s to 50s. For clothing from the 1940s to 1960 check out the old "Dennis The Menace" TV show...the live version with Jay North.

Crash problem.

Hello everyone.

I am new to Seamless3d and am still at the stage of learning the many
features and functions.

Currently i am trying to make a movie from screenshots using Seamless3d 3.003,
Ffmpeg SVN-r22716 and a .smls avatar file from the seamless3d home site.
But i am having the problem that Seamless3d crashes when i press the
output screenshot movie button. On two occasions seamless3d did not crash
and i got the expected movie file and sequentially numbered screenshots.

I have found that if i do not select the movie output type and just press make
movie from screenshots i get a nice set of sequentially numbered screenshots
every time without problem apart from the animation sometimes seizing whilst
the screenshots are being taken.

So i would like to ask if others have had Seamless3d crash in the same
situation or if i could be doing something wrong or if my computer may not be
up to the task. Your help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

P.S.
I should add that i have been following the tutorial 'Making 3d animated movies
suitable for youtube tutorial' and that i do not have a media player running
when Seamless3d is running.

A FEW POINTERS PLEASE

Hey guys-

Need a little help here and don't know where to go. Writing a musical narrative about the life of Jim Morrison {from the Doors} and need to do some character creation. Need a male with long brown hair and blue eyes. T shirt. Jeans. Leather jacket. One version barefoot and the other with shoes. Cleanshaven. Attached is a photo of Morrison from around 1966-67. The figure wouldn't need to look exactly like that. But somewhat similar. Does Seamless have something like that?? Also need a male with long red hair and green eyes.

Reshaping an adult head to create a young child's head.

I like to think about the different facial features that makes a particular face look the way it does. Today I challenged myself to make a child’s head from this simple adult head I made earlier.
The most dramatic effect that made it more childlike was to squash/scale the region below the center of the eyes towards the eyes. In addition to this, I shortened the nose yet more and rounded it a bit, moved the nose and mouth back into the head a bit and puffed out the cheeks and gave it a more pointy chin.

Issues/Bugs on the new version (3.001)

Talking about the drag3dSensitivity addition. I have changed its value to its minimum "0.01" and the result is that it improves a LOT its sensitivity. But it only happens while MOVING CONTROL POINTS around the model. Other than that, working with my tablet is not possible.
Another different situation is while DRAGGING or ROTATING things in the 3D view window. Here the drag3dSensitivity´s improvement is zero, like if there is a need for another "drag3dSensitivity" control for the 3d view while dragging and rotating.


"You can change the background by clicking on the Scene node and changing its backgroundColor field."
Thank you. One more thing. How can I save this change as a default into Seamless? Opening it again it shows the previous colour.


BUG:
When using the SPACE-BAR shortcut key, it stops working in all Modes, except the PolyEditMode, in which it works OK.
Open Seamless. Create an sphere. Go right into the ModellingMode, for instance.The FIRST time you hit the shortcut it WILL work OK and will show the cage mode of the sphere. Hit it again and it will toggle. Now move/drag the sphere in the 3dwindow: the shortcut key will not work any more and will be freeze to the previous action.
BUG:
Following the HeadTutorial I stop at 4:10min, when applying the first Ring. The Ring was applied correctly, but when I try to change the position of the pivot point dragging the blue point, it behaves like its X,Z and Y axis were wrong: dragging the blue point DOWN, it just moves UP on the 3Dview. Dragging it to the LEFT the cursor moves to the RIGHT, and vice-versa

By the way, while using the shortcuts keys already assigned, I found out that there is a "Backface Ignore" check-box inside the Settings Panel. Is this feature the same as the "Backface Ignore" found inside the Modelling-Mode? They behave differently but have the same name.

Thanks
