    It has been a while.


    Tonights tutorial is for any of you who plan on having singing faces this year. I have written a parse for Papagayo and it will produce 3 outputs
    1) a fully rendered movie (mpg or mp4) of your faces. this movice can be used for whole house projection
    2) a nutcracker sequence where the images of the faces are shown on your matrix
    3) a nutcracker sequence where it activates 5 models, one for each mouth shape. this 3rd method works for the traditional coro faces.


    If you are not going to use singing faces, please do not call in. We have just 20 lines and they fill up.
    I will be recording the session.


    One other item: I will be on vacation to Puerto Vallarta from Mar 22-30th next week. So no tutorial on March 27th.






    When: Thursday,Mar 20th. 7pm MST, 9pm EST


    We will be using teamviewer. Ill start session at 6:45pm MST
