No, thank you!

Is there a way to view it on Vimeo?
:thinking:
No, I have it as private on Vimeo. I don't want anyone stumbling across it and complaining. I think crux videos are right on the edge of the user agreement. I will have some sound in the next video. Some moaning, breaths, and perhaps a musical score. I am just trying to figure out what kind of music goes with a crucifixion!

Gentle reader, animation, as @Servus Venandi has said, is not easy. Achieving an animation as vivid as this is, well, breathtaking, and you have my immense respect, MH, and my thanks for showing it to us!

Thanks for all your hard work, MMH! :clap2:

If I were you, I wouldn't worry about music. It just distracts from the moans!

Oh man, you are on streak with animations! This is another angle of that excellent first animation isn't it? Not sure how I feel about the music, it drowns out her moans a little, but damn if it isn't still a sight to behold. How much work did this take you?

Well, now you are going to make me let the cat out of the bag. This took little effort compared to doing it in Daz or Poser. This was made in a program that is relatively new (maybe came out in like 2019?), called Virt A Mate or better known as VAM. It was conceived of as a sex game, virtual reality game. It incorporates a lot of DAZ and Poser concepts, but it works in real time, as in no rendering. The images in the video are exactly what you see live in the program, you just take screen shots. This makes images a little less real, but with VR goggles it is amazingly awesome. I could, and did, go into VR and walk around this scene in life size 3D real time. It is a game changer and a completely different way of creating and enjoying content.

As for the creation process used here, I built the basic animation that was in the first animation back in June. That took a couple of hours. What makes this different from DAZ is that the characters have collision, physics and respond to gravity. This is to make them more lifelike in 3D scenes, so that you may interact with them in a realistic way. For example, I did nothing to animate the hair. That was all simple responses to the physics, there are settings to get the results you want and I did tweak those to be more like a fine hair moving around a lot. SO, I had this animation for a while but could not find a backdrop that I liked, that made the whole scene pop as "real" as possible. I finally ran across one and have a scene I will post in a few days with it. These I have posted are older scenes that I decided were better than I thought and I found a few ways to tweak them for better results. I have only been playing with this software for about 6 months. The beginning was VERY slow as the interface is completely different and you have to download all kinds of plug ins to get all the cool results. I have been doing that and learning to use them. Still have a way to go on that! This animation was made using that same basic motion file as the first video, but I have learned to use a plugin that can make a body part move. It is designed to create sex scenes, as in make the hip move or the head, etc. You can also use it to animate the hip in a constant motion. So I added 3 plugins, one each for the head, the hips, and chest. Then tweaked them to get a good result. These are applied to a posed character, so I figured out a way to stop the animation and simultaneously active these plugins and then back the other way. There is a button in the lower left corner that you can see my mouse pop into a few times that is the trigger. This was when I was swapping the animation back and forth. So then I started with the same animation but had it frozen and used the plugins to make her squirm. then I swapped and let her dance. Then at times I swapped back and forth as I tried to time events with the music and to squirm in different positions. This triggering idea just came to me yesterday and I like the results as well as the possibilities that it presents to create an animation is that not just a loop with minimal work. You can do a lot of things in the program that is more like being a puppeteer than an animator. All in all, including the multiple attempts at capturing the video timed like I wanted, this video took about four hours? I created the past two videos, and another I will probably post tomorrow that is VERY different, this week. As in I started on them Sunday afternoon.

There! That is probably more than anyone wanted to know about this software! But, I am really excited about this program, it is really close to the holy grail I have always wanted in 3D software. For creating in as well as interacting with amazingly believable scenes of beautiful women in a 3D environment.

Yes, I am a dedicated perv!
