Does Van Aken (and other clays) go stale or does it last forever?

Or if it did go crumbly would melting it and letting it set again help?

thetopbun Posted: Apr 14th 2009

MTS you are back! You forgot BLENDER!

chees3gromit Posted: Apr 14th 2009

yes, because ttb is a master and CGI comes naturally to him!

chees3gromit Posted: May 7th 2009

aw, sorry bout that.

could you explain how P&B?

Purple&Brown Posted: May 8th 2009

Explain what?

chees3gromit Posted: May 8th 2009

how to get more than 5 songs a month

Purple&Brown Posted: May 9th 2009


First things first,

Download a prgram called Audacity ( its free! )

Then go to soundsnap

Find the Sound Effect you want but DON'T play or download it.

Go back to Audacity and go to: Edit, prefrences and make sure the drop downs are shown as: Microsoft Soun Mapper - Output, Microsft Sound Mapper - Input and on channel 1 mono, then click ok. Make sure the Dropdown in the top right hand corner is turned to sterio mix.

Then press the record button ( the red circle ) and go to Sounsnap, play the Sound you want to save, wait for it to finish and then go back to Audacity. Press the stop button ( the orange square ). Then play the sound back to see if it had worked.

When you are happy with it, go file, save as WAV and then it is on your hard disk.

If it is not working, still need help or if you want to know how to use a microphone on it, get back to me as quick as you can.

Hope I helped:)

danwat Posted: May 21st 2009

Wow its nice to read the article, i lov it

womble1 Posted: May 30th 2009

hi can anyone give me any info on how to make sets (inside) look really lifelike.

crackingtoast Posted: May 31st 2009

you can get acserrores,such as tables,chairs,tv's,plates,cutlery,at a dolls house shop. for wallpaper you could use wrapping paper,and add a few hand drawn or printed out pictures on the wall,and voila,you've got a not bad set.

womble1 Posted: Jun 5th 2009

thanks alot cracking toast
can anyone tell me how to make outside look really life like (wood land forest)Also how do you create water in a set ( a pond )

wallace295 Posted: Jun 6th 2009

Phew! Well if you have one maybe you could use a bowl fill with water and decorate the outside with real or fake stones and fake grass!!! Outside hmmmmmmmmmmm You could film outside but if its raining maybe take a photo when the sun is shining print it at you're local shop with photo printing and if you take a fairly big photo it could be used as a background using somthing to keep it stable at the back
;) Good luck!!!!!!!

cavor Posted: Jun 7th 2009

Or you could paint the colour of you pond in you scene then lay cling film over it this you could even animate slight ripples:D

wallace295 idea of laying stones (& gluing) around the pond would be good as this would be a way of holding down the cling film
