Henmations Announces the "Smart HUD"


Henmations Announces the "Smart HUD" 111229

Hendrik Schroeder announced the following in the Henmations Group today ...

===================

NEW: SMART HUD - Intelligent AO & Dance HUD
Thu, Dec 29 2011 1:16:33 PM PST


FINALLY...  Enjoy SMART HUD, SLs first intelligent AO & Dance HUD thats full configurable without to edit any Config Notecard or Script. Customizing AO Sequences, Dance Sequences etc. becomes easy now with the SMART Web Interface!

===================

I will look at the HUD in the enxt few days and see which class of HUDs it belongs in.

Database Update 1


Database Update 1 (111229)

The database is online now with over 6000 anims listed. Of course the database is incomplete. There are many anims and dances not in it and I will add them when I learn about them. If you have a list of dances or anims that are not in the database, send it to me.

There is also a lot of incomplete information in the database. Mainly this is classifying dances and anims into CATEGORIES and STYLES. Some work is underway on this. Psyche Lunasea and I are working on classifying the couples dances and should finish in early January. Once we finish, I will update the listing and you can see our work and hopefully correct our mistakes.

You can help. If you are knowledgeable of a specific style of dance, help us identify dances that fit that style. Today, Halfpint Raymaker sent me links to four videos of Chicago Stepping. This will help us learn what that specific style is. Hopefully, Half will serve as an expert on Chicago Stepping and help us with identifying dances that fit that STYLE.

The reason for all this is to help us know which anims may best fit our needs. Today an example of this was discussed in the Group IM. Deb Heron was looking for Tribal - American Indian dances. Although I had not identified American Indian dances, they certainly are a STYLE that fits into the Traditional CATEGORY. Lotus Mandel provided a list, which was shared on the group IM. I will add her list to the database so all of us can see it in the next update.

You can see the classification of dances and anims by looking in the upper right of the blog and clicking on Dance Categories-Styles.

Making the Line Dancer with the MPC System


Making the Line Dancer with the MPC System 111229

I was searching on SL Marketplace for something and came across the !Hironic - MPC Box. I had heard of it before as an alternate way to move avatars in a show. It is used mainly for controlling poses in furniture and is a competitve product to the XPOSE. I bought it for 2000 L and took a look at it. I will have to say the instuctions are not easy to understand, but eventually I figured it out. Here is what it does for dancing:
  • Controls multiple avatars so that they can dance individually or in sync
  • Controls couples dancing
  • Moves avatars to specified positions instantly on a click
In this way it is very similar to the XPOSE without the ability to rezz items. It lacks the ability to move avatars from one position to another over time (like the DB System and DanceMaster) and cannot do sequenced choreography. It also is not a competitor to the INTAN or TIS Hybrid since it doesnt rezz couples pose balls anywhere on demand.

It does have one very good feature. Once you make an object with the MPC system, you can sell it or give it away. So, I decided to make a simple thing I call the DANCE QUEENS - Line Dancer and give it away so you can see how it works. You can get it at Dance Central in the Free Stuff Box. It is copy transfer.

Here is what I did. I put in 33 dances that are both copy and transfer. These are from the DANCE QUEENS Freebie Dance Pack. I then followed the instructions to make a line of up to five avatars all facing the same direction. Each avatar can dance individually or can dance in sync. I didnt use the feature that controls couples dancing since I think it is of limited usefulness. Other products do this better.

Try the Line Dancer to see if you like the capabilities of it. Just rezz it and sit on it to get a menu. If you buy the MPC system, I can help you with the basics.

In the next month or so I plan to review the options for controlling show dancing. These include the DB System, DanceMaster, XPOSE, and the MPC sustem. I expect the MPC system will be the least capable of the choices available, but the option of inexpensively making salable or give-away products is a real benefit.

Empty Lines in Huddles Notecards


Empty Lines in Huddles Notecards 111227

For those of you who use the Huddles HUD, be aware of the importance of using a space-bar space on empty lines. If you want to put a line between dances or sequences so that you have a blank entry in the Huddles display, you must put a space-bar space on the blank line. If you don't Huddles may skip the following line.

Parade Dancing


Parade Dancing 111225

If you are in the northern hemisphere, you may enjoy the skate dancing that I mentioned a few weeks ago. It is a lot of fun. Today, Felicia Ibanez showed me another fun way to dance or use animations ... the Macy's Parade. This is a big parade in New York City and is found in SL at FRANNYDJ'S NEW YORK CITY CHRISMAS PARADE. Try it. It is a lot of fun and may give you ideas for shows you can do.

In a couple of days I will show you how we use dancing during the end of year holidays in the southern hemisphere.

Sequencing Couples Dances


Sequencing Couples Dances 111211

Psyche Lunasea leads a dance group called MaHal, which features performances using sequenced couples dances. Psyche uses the MLDU5 Dance HUD which allows control of couples dancing.

Here is a video made by Florine Writer of a couples dance by Psyche called Thalia's Por Amor.

Psyche has shared the dance sequence with us. It is in the format used by the MLDU5:


//
//Thalia: Por Amor

This gives you an idea of how sequences for couples dancing can be done and the beautiful result by a very experienced choreographer.

Raymations Returns to SL


Raymations Returns to SL 111211

Owain Raymaker sent this notice in the Raymations Group today ...

====================

Raymation Designs re-opened... bit by bit ;-)
Sun, Dec 11 2011 6:20:10 AM PST


Hi all
I have decided to re-open Raymation Designs, but with far more secure vendors. Hopefully, I won't get hacked again!

Anyways, I have the couple sex range and the Nikita dances available as No Copy versions, as well as a large number of animations available for Full Perm purchase.

I have some demos of some new Nikita lap dances for people to try out.

I will try to get the rest of my older stock out for sale asap.

Cheers
Owain

Replacement Dances


Replacement Dances 111211

About a month ago Linden Lab had a technical problem that caused some animations to be replaced by what are called "Replacement Dances" in which the movement is a slow turn about 120 degrees then a return to facing the front. Supposedly all of these problems were fixed, but I have found a few that remain. Normally the Replacement Dances are used by Linden Lab when an illegal dance is replaced because of a copyright infringement, but in this case it was a LL error.

Please send to me an IM of any dances that you have that you know you paid for and are now Replacement Dances. I need:
  1. The exact name of the animation
  2. The name of the creator, for example, 3FX
On Tuesday I will contact Linden Lab and give them the list. I can do this through the concierge service that is available to me because I am a sim owner, so I hope for a quick resolution.

DanceMaster Demo


DanceMaster Demo 111210

On 10 December 2011 Bryndyn Burton gave a demo of the DanceMaster System. Although there is not a video fo the system in action, the conversation and questions help understand it a lot ...

I did edit the chat record to remove unrelated discussions.

====================

[10:02:27] Bryndyn Burton: OK, well, thank you all for coming to today's demo, which I'll get started now.
[10:02:47] DM Pro: Welcome to a DanceMaster Pro demonstration!
[10:02:52] DM Pro: In this demo, you'll get to see some of the unique dance and choreography control features available with the DanceMaster Pro system.
[10:03:00] DM Pro: During the demo, all animation, movement control, and narration is being automatically handled by the DanceMaster Pro, using standard DanceMaster Pro commands.
[10:03:10] DM Pro: The entire sequence can run without manual intervention, but it can also be paused, resumed, and overriden by the owner or an authorized dance host at any time.
[10:03:20] DM Pro: For the demo, this allows Bryndyn to focus on answering questions you may have.
[10:03:35] DM Pro: At this time, please join the demo by clicking on one of the numbered pads that are part of the DanceMaster Pro hanging at the rear of the stage.
[10:03:35] DM Pro: You will be sent a dance marker near your feet with your name over it. Click on that marker to be moved into position in the initial formation for this demo, which is a half circle with everyone facing in to the center.
[10:05:14] Bryndyn Burton: If you wish to participate in the demo, click on a numbered pad in the wheel at the rear of the stage
[10:05:36] Bryndyn Burton: You may adjust your own vertical offset with your page up/down keys.

[10:07:03] Bryndyn Burton: OK, look s like everyone is about ready, so I'll let the demo proceed.
[10:07:16] DM Pro: Since everyone is ready to proceed, Bryndyn will continue the demo, which runs a ballet sequence.
[10:07:25] DM Pro: We start dancing for 15 seconds in our initial formation...
[10:07:40] DM Pro: And now the DanceMaster Pro moves us slowly in a 10 second transition to a new formation. Notice that the animation changed at the same time.
[10:07:51] DM Pro: Now that we have reached our new formation positions (two angled lines), we change to another animation.
[10:07:54] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): nice
[10:08:01] Nottoo Wise: no jumps
[10:08:06] Bryndyn Burton: Let me show you what the formation looks like...
[10:09:12] Bryndyn Burton: No, Nottoo, you cannot dance on these position markers.
[10:09:19] Bryndyn Burton: These are for display only.
[10:09:20] Nottoo Wise: i see
[10:09:24] Nottoo Wise: i reset myself
[10:09:50] Bryndyn Burton: That's OK, Kiriam, just join the machyine again.
[10:10:06] Bryndyn Burton: Click on the marker at your feet
[10:10:07] Nottoo Wise: so the sequence is in the dancemaster
[10:10:10] Nottoo Wise: and the positions
[10:10:13] Nottoo Wise: and the movement
[10:10:25] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, everything is in the DanceMaster right now.
[10:10:46] DM Pro: And now a 12-second transition that moves us into a circular formation, with everyone facing in.
[10:11:11] DM Pro: The DanceMaster can change the way dancers face for additional interest. Now every other position is facing out.
[10:11:23] DM Pro: Now we face each other in pairs around the circle, and change animations at the same time.
[10:11:27] Nottoo Wise: the difference between the dancemaster and the xpose is that u move without a jump ... very nice
[10:11:49] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: I want it
[10:11:49] Nottoo Wise: and the difference between the dancemaster and teh DB system is that u put the dances in the dancemaster instead of in ur hud
[10:11:57] Bryndyn Burton: That's not the only difference, Nottoo. You can set the time of a transition exactly.
[10:12:03] Nottoo Wise: so u can one click for a whole show
[10:12:17] Nottoo Wise: yes there r more differences of course
[10:12:21] Bryndyn Burton: You can also specify whether transition move in straight or curved lines, and the amount of curve.
[10:12:23] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): sounds less sressful
[10:12:40] Nottoo Wise: the stress is in setting it up
[10:12:48] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, the system can be run fully automatically. But manual intervention is always available, because things happen.
[10:12:49] Nottoo Wise: not during the show
[10:12:50] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): but is it easy for a gal like myself
[10:12:57] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): that was my thought too Nottoo
[10:13:02] DM Pro: And we continue to change animations and the way we face...
[10:13:05] Lorraine Jupiter: are the positionings built in, or do you make them by sliding those circles around?
[10:13:40] Bryndyn Burton: There are built-in formations as examples, but you normally define your own. There are a variety of tools provided to help with this.
[10:13:48] DM Pro: Until we begin a long, 20-second transition into a new formation.
[10:14:08] DM Pro: This is a triple line formation, with another animation change.
[10:14:19] Nottoo Wise: very neat i must say
[10:14:39] Kiriam MacIntyre: nice formation changes
[10:14:39] Lorraine Jupiter: everyone does exactly the same dance?
[10:14:43] DM Pro: Now we move slowly into one long line across the stage.
[10:14:54] Bryndyn Burton: No, in fact you will see some differences in a moment.
[10:14:58] DM Pro: And now we move slowly into a V formation which will have a soloist in the middle
[10:15:23] Nottoo Wise: u can also use ur HUD if u want
[10:15:24] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): can you make 1/2 of us move one way 1/2 the ohter?
[10:15:30] Bryndyn Burton: Actually, Nottoo, can I ask you to stand up and select position #12?
[10:15:49] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, Cilla, you'll see something like that in a moment.
[10:15:56] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): k
[10:16:09] Bryndyn Burton: Now into another formation
[10:16:13] DM Pro: We all strike a pose while the soloist dances alone...
[10:16:25] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): wow
[10:16:28] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: nice
[10:16:38] DM Pro: And now we join in behind the soloist, but with a different animation.
[10:16:39] Lorraine Jupiter: could we be clapping or moving?
[10:16:50] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): i'm gonna cry
[10:16:51] Bryndyn Burton: Sure, any animations can be used.
[10:16:52] Nottoo Wise: what is the max distance u can be from the dancemaster
[10:16:59] DM Pro: Finally, we move into the last formation of this demo...
[10:17:05] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): this is beautiful Bryn
[10:17:14] DM Pro: And we take our bows (the outer ring starts first)
[10:17:46] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): hugs
[10:17:46] Bryndyn Burton: And that is the end of the little ballet sequence...
[10:17:49] Nottoo Wise: very nice
[10:17:53] Lorraine Jupiter: lovely
[10:17:58] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: I love it
[10:17:59] DM Pro: The performance demo has concluded, and the DanceMaster Pro is clearing everyone from the machine.
[10:18:00] DM Pro: Thank you for your interest! The DanceMaster Pro is available for purchase from the store vendor on the ground floor of this building.
[10:18:00] Nottoo Wise: this is the first system to give u total control in one system
[10:18:05] DM Pro: Talk with Bryndyn about what size system may be best for your needs.
[10:18:06] Kiriam MacIntyre: pretty awesome
[10:18:10] DM Pro: And remember that every DanceMaster comes with a 30-day full refund guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product for any reason during that time.
[10:18:20] Nottoo Wise: tell us about rezzing objects bryndyn
[10:18:30] Bryndyn Burton: lol, OK, one question at a time...
[10:18:57] Bryndyn Burton: First, Nottoo, you can be very far from the DanceMaster. Hundreds of meters at least.
[10:20:05] Nottoo Wise: so the dances can be more than 20 M apart?
[10:20:06] Bryndyn Burton: This current version does not support object rezzing, but the next one (which will be out in a week or two) will allow you to have the DanceMaster Pro rez arbitrary objects at formation positioins.
[10:20:51] Lorraine Jupiter: :O
[10:20:57] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, the dancers can be very far apart. A DanceMaster was used in Tombstone recently for the longest line dance in SL... almost 100 meters long.
[10:21:00] Kiriam MacIntyre: Can this be used for simple movement of one person from one location to another on a set?
[10:21:24] Bryndyn Burton: Yes. You can use it to change animation at the start of a move, for example, to a walking motion.
[10:21:31] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: will this one be updated or do we need to wait?
[10:21:44] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): I want to create a dance "The Stroll" 2 side lines that a couple moves up and dances down the middle.
[10:21:59] Bryndyn Burton: Updates are free... you need to come to the store to pick up an updater object.
[10:22:00] Lorraine Jupiter: omg that's exactly what I want
[10:22:08] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): but the couple is dancing a different dance
[10:22:22] Kiriam MacIntyre: Nice Cilla
[10:22:32] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, Cilla. The Pro allows you to assign different animations to different positions.
[10:22:35] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): only nice if I can't figure it out
[10:22:43] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): this sounds too perfect
[10:22:46] Kiriam MacIntyre: lol
[10:22:51] Bryndyn Burton: lol
[10:23:01] Lorraine Jupiter: do you know of any animation that has The Stroll feet?
[10:23:05] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: is there a way we can see the instructions?
[10:23:06] Kiriam MacIntyre: so it goes from simple to complex positioning
[10:23:26] Bryndyn Burton: It is designed to be comprehensive, Cilla... I want this to really be the ultimate dance and performance system in SL.
[10:23:52] Nottoo Wise: i dont lorraine
[10:24:02] Bryndyn Burton: There is a lot of different documentation, Charlotte. All in notecards.
[10:24:04] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): Lorraine.. I'll give you the list of dances I've selected so far
[10:24:17] Nottoo Wise: i have one
[10:24:17] Lorraine Jupiter: hugs!
[10:24:21] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): and YouTubes Bryn
[10:24:25] Lorraine Jupiter: you have the stroll???
[10:24:26] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): any
[10:24:26] Bryndyn Burton: There are detailed reference manuals, quick reference guides, some step-by-step tutorials, etc.
[10:24:26] Nottoo Wise: and id say it is like learning the huddles hud
[10:24:49] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: does it have anything about X,Y and Z in the instructions or any math?
[10:25:00] Kiriam MacIntyre: good documentation and customer service is vital for me
[10:25:04] Lorraine Jupiter: if you have the stroll walk, I'm buying this right now
[10:25:29] Kiriam MacIntyre: lol Lorraine
[10:26:04] Bryndyn Burton: Good documentation and customer service are vital for me as well. I can give you some references, if you would like.
[10:26:05] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): does this work at any location or do we need to redue the coordinates at each club??

[10:26:34] Bryndyn Burton: You do not need to redefine all the formations when you move to a new location.
[10:27:07] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): Bryn.. that would be amazing
[10:27:10] Bryndyn Burton: Unless your performance needs to face a different direction. However, I've even fixed that problem in the next update.
[10:27:16] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): oh
[10:27:24] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): kool
[10:27:31] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): so how much?
[10:27:36] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): for the new one?
[10:27:48] Bryndyn Burton: In the next version, you'll be able to change a single direction number in a notecard, and reorient an entire performance.
[10:28:06] Bryndyn Burton: The next version is the same price as the current version, it will be a free update.
[10:28:24] Kiriam MacIntyre: and what is the price of the current version please?
[10:28:57] Bryndyn Burton: Prices vary with the size of the system (number of dancers supported). Smallest system for 6 dancers is $2500.
[10:29:20] Bryndyn Burton: Largest system for 36 dancers is $11000.
[10:29:39] Bryndyn Burton: Available sizes are 6, 12, 24, and 36 maximum dancers.
[10:29:46] Kiriam MacIntyre: what are the numbers of the dancers on each system?
[10:29:47] Nottoo Wise: i put one at dance central along with the DB system and the xpose so u can see all three
[10:29:48] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): my one concern is .. I use my Huddles to dance grops.. and if my dances are not all copy . then I"M in trouble.
[10:29:58] Bryndyn Burton: But any system can be configured to use fewer than its maximum.
[10:30:23] Lorraine Jupiter: I'll pay 11000 just for the stroll
[10:30:25] Bryndyn Burton: Cilla, you should also be able to use the DanceMaster with your Huddles.
[10:30:35] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): oh?
[10:30:39] Nottoo Wise: yes u can i have done it
[10:30:43] Nottoo Wise: done
[10:30:51] Bryndyn Burton: You can still control dancers animations with other devices, even while they are on the DanceMaster.
[10:31:03] Nottoo Wise: just keep in mind dance priorities
[10:31:13] Kiriam MacIntyre: so you can move with DM but dance on Huddles?
[10:31:34] Bryndyn Burton: Yes. The DanceMaster Pro comes with a free, low-priority "neutral" animation that can be overriden by anything else.
[10:31:58] Kiriam MacIntyre: but still move you yes?
[10:32:08] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, Kiriam. However, when you do so, you lose the ability to have the DanceMaster Pro automatically synchronize animation changes with movement.
[10:32:31] Kiriam MacIntyre: ah
[10:32:44] Kiriam MacIntyre: does DM only use copy dances then?
[10:33:13] Bryndyn Burton: But skilled dancers/performers could probably handle it. Or you could have the DanceMaster control some animations, for part of the performance where sync was crucial.
[10:33:46] Kiriam MacIntyre: would there be a noticable switch?
[10:33:57] Bryndyn Burton: The DanceMaster can use copy or no copy animations. It only requires one copy of an animation to use with all dancers.
[10:34:16] Kiriam MacIntyre: nods
[10:34:23] Bryndyn Burton: Kiriam, it would depend on the choice of animations, timing, many factors.
[10:35:00] Kiriam MacIntyre: I recently needed to end my routine with me stopping the dance... turning and walking to a bus
[10:35:08] Kiriam MacIntyre: can DM do that?
[10:35:36] Bryndyn Burton: Sure, I don't see any reason why not... with appropriate animations.
[10:35:51] Kiriam MacIntyre: it was hella hard to do manually
[10:36:10] Bryndyn Burton: When you specify a formation transition, you can set up to 4 different things:
[10:36:19] Bryndyn Burton: 1) how long the transition takes
[10:36:34] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): can you DEMO us you setting say 3 moves
[10:36:41] Bryndyn Burton: 2) how much of a circular curve the path follows to the next location
[10:36:58] Bryndyn Burton: 3) how your avi faces *during* the transition
[10:37:15] Bryndyn Burton: 4) which formation positioins are affected by the transition.
[10:37:37] Kiriam MacIntyre: so after the dance stopped for instance
[10:37:46] Kiriam MacIntyre: I could "walk" in DM
[10:37:54] Kiriam MacIntyre: to the next location
[10:38:04] Kiriam MacIntyre: use a walk alnim and be moved?
[10:38:06] Kiriam MacIntyre: -l
[10:38:28] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): if it could do the stroll it can do a walk
[10:38:31] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, the transition would specify how long you wanted to be alking, whether in straight line/curved, to face the line of direction of movement while moving.
[10:38:51] Kiriam MacIntyre: YAY! (yay!)
[10:39:06] Bryndyn Burton: The choice of animation is separate from the transition. In fact, you could change animation *during* a transition if appropriate.
[10:39:28] Nottoo Wise: how sensitive is the DM to large groups of people ... lag
[10:39:40] Kiriam MacIntyre: oh good question Nots
[10:39:55] Bryndyn Burton: It has some anti-lag features built in a variety of ways.
[10:40:37] Kiriam MacIntyre: you have this at Dance central you said Nots?
[10:40:44] Nottoo Wise: yes
[10:40:50] Nottoo Wise: a six person version
[10:40:54] Nottoo Wise: out of the box
[10:40:57] Nottoo Wise: but it works
[10:41:05] Kiriam MacIntyre: and it is open for anyone to play witlh?
[10:41:08] Nottoo Wise: sure
[10:41:10] Bryndyn Burton: For example, transition movement calculates where you *should* be at any point in time during the transition. If for some reason lag holds you up briefly, the calculation automatically places you in the right position to catch up and still end at the right place at the right time.
[10:41:15] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): so next it will rez stages for us too?
[10:41:48] Bryndyn Burton: No, it will not be rezzing stages, unless you want to make  separate formation for that...
[10:42:02] Nottoo Wise: i think it will bryndyn
[10:42:12] Nottoo Wise: if u can make the stage a copyable object
[10:42:19] Bryndyn Burton: The intent of the new rezzing feature is to rez objects during performance for performers to use at their formation locations.
[10:42:36] Nottoo Wise: what many of us do is rezz a stage or set for a scene
[10:42:41] Bryndyn Burton: Things like chairs, poles, etc.
[10:42:47] Nottoo Wise: after the scene we rezz another
[10:43:09] Nottoo Wise: a set is like a chair in that it is a linked object
[10:43:13] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): couldn't you rez a stage the same as being like rezing a chair. hmm
[10:43:20] Nottoo Wise: yes
[10:43:20] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): hehe
[10:43:21] Bryndyn Burton: I understand, Nottoo. But I'm sure there are excellent tools already out there that can do that.
[10:43:23] Nottoo Wise: hahahaha
[10:43:39] Nottoo Wise: but the advantage here is that u can do it on a time schedule
[10:43:41] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): yes if we buy extra
[10:43:55] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): and have an extra hud
[10:43:56] Nottoo Wise: so one click and u can do the entire performance
[10:44:14] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): deaming
[10:44:14] Bryndyn Burton: The DanceMaster Pro can control any chat-controlled object during performance as well.
[10:44:26] Kiriam MacIntyre: if there is a way to make it do it... Nots will find it
[10:44:29] Nottoo Wise: so u can do poofers?
[10:45:00] Nottoo Wise: particles i mean
[10:45:05] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): can you give us a demo of you setting up 3 moves maybe?
[10:45:13] Bryndyn Burton: Any object that can be controlled by unencrypted chat commands can be given those commands during a performance sequence by the DanceMaster Pro.
[10:45:27] Nottoo Wise: i like that
[10:46:02] Nottoo Wise: u also used the DM for chat
[10:46:07] Nottoo Wise: is that timed also
[10:46:34] Bryndyn Burton: The DanceMaster Pro provided chat during the demo you saw for the audience.
[10:46:42] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, it can be timed as well.
[10:46:51] Nottoo Wise: so u can have a script read out on schedule
[10:47:03] Kiriam MacIntyre: oh... emotes?
[10:47:05] Bryndyn Burton: The Pro can also deliver prompts via IM during performance to some or all performers.
[10:47:16] Nottoo Wise: hahaha
[10:47:16] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: cool
[10:47:28] Nottoo Wise: like Nottoo ur underwear isnt on
[10:47:34] Kiriam MacIntyre: lmao
[10:47:35] Bryndyn Burton: And again, those can be timed/synced with everything else.
[10:47:42] Kiriam MacIntyre: nice!!
[10:47:50] Kiriam MacIntyre: that happened to one of our dancers last night
[10:47:55] Kiriam MacIntyre: she was mortified
[10:48:14] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): so this creates only ONE person is creating/controling the WHOLE show.. ? where would this put DD, Bubbs, Jam as dance creaters?
[10:48:37] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: I think we have all danced without pants at one time
[10:48:43] Nottoo Wise: i think u can still choreograph by many people but one person puts it in the DM
[10:49:11] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): that puts all the cost on that one person
[10:49:27] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): they would have to buy ALL the dances
[10:49:30] Nottoo Wise: choreography is not clicking the button but all the creativity that occurs when the button is clicked
[10:49:41] Nottoo Wise: yes thats true
[10:49:44] Nottoo Wise: hahaha
[10:49:50] Bryndyn Burton: Cilla, I think it simply gives you options that you did not have before... You don't have to use all the options.
[10:49:52] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): that was my point
[10:49:53] Nottoo Wise: but most show dancers have stopped worrying about cost
[10:50:07] CHARLOTTEMARIE Tigerpaw: unless it is transfer dances ,corrrect?
[10:50:45] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): some might should worry
[10:50:49] Nottoo Wise: u should make a group DM
[10:50:53] Cilly (cilla.teebrook) raises hand
[10:50:59] Nottoo Wise: so group memebrs can all add to it and control it
[10:51:01] Bryndyn Burton: Yes, Cilla?
[10:51:22] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): I'm ok . thank Bryn
[10:51:42] Bryndyn Burton: You asked earlier about ... something about setting upp 3 moves?
[10:51:43] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): yes . .a group invite would be nice.
[10:52:06] Kiriam MacIntyre: can the dancers be on different height levels?
[10:52:20] Bryndyn Burton: Yes.
[10:52:52] Kiriam MacIntyre: and honest opinion... how difficult would you say this system is to master?
[10:53:53] Bryndyn Burton: An honest answer... this is not a simple system. You can learn to use it very quickly to do simple things. It takes time to master it, and practice, just like any sophisticated tool.
[10:54:06] Nottoo Wise: i have learned the Hudles, the INTAN, the XPOSE, the TIS hybrid, the DB system, the Barre, the Fleursoft and about 6 more HUDs
[10:54:11] Nottoo Wise: its like them
[10:54:17] Nottoo Wise: and once u start it makes sense
[10:54:20] Nottoo Wise: it just takes time
[10:54:38] Bryndyn Burton: I would not recommend buying it for use in a performance a few days later.
[10:54:55] Kiriam MacIntyre: well you are far more advanced than I am Nots... lol
[10:55:08] Bryndyn Burton: Although that has been done, and people have been very successful.
[10:55:33] Kiriam MacIntyre: I Just want to know that the documentation is there to make learning it as efficient as possible
[10:55:55] Bryndyn Burton: And I am always available to answer questions. lol, Kiriam, there is a *lot* of docuemntation, at varying levels.
[10:56:23] Kiriam MacIntyre: we are a rather tough group to please
[10:56:26] Kiriam MacIntyre: lol
[10:56:34] Kiriam MacIntyre: we want it to do EVERYTHILNG
[10:56:59] Bryndyn Burton: lol, I'd like it to do everything, too... but there are scripting limits, and other issues.
[10:57:00] Nottoo Wise: hahha true
[10:57:24] Kiriam MacIntyre: sometimes I just want to jump inside my AV and move myself
[10:57:49] Kiriam MacIntyre: I get frustrated when I have a great idea and can't make it happen
[10:57:56] Bryndyn Burton: That will probably happen someday, Kiriam, and in the not-too-distant future.
[10:58:21] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): giggles
[10:58:28] Nottoo Wise: bryndyn ty for the demo and time
[10:58:30] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): shivvers
[10:58:38] Kiriam MacIntyre: lol... envisions everyone sitting at their computer wearing an animation suit
[10:58:44] Naiki Muliaina: Thankya Bryn
[10:58:46] Bryndyn Burton: yvw. Thank you everyone for your interest, and for coming today :-)
[10:58:53] Lorraine Jupiter: thank you
[10:58:57] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): bows to your Bryndyn..
[10:59:03] Cilly (cilla.teebrook): i appreciate it
[10:59:05] Kiriam MacIntyre: oh.. where is this for sale?
[10:59:10] Bryndyn Burton: I'll be available for questions any time.

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER
I wanted to give the feeling of my native Argentine Tango ... the passion ... the sensuality. The opening is with a pose (*AMIMATION* Look Back Pose_014) and the sequence begins after the fourth beat when the drum begins. I love the movement of the legs in these dances while the arms are almost stationary, except on the third music change. Here the desire is in full force with fleeting eye contact, body movement and innuendo. The dance ends with a return to distant sensuality and finally a backward glance.


Details of the choreography are here.

If you want to perform this sequence, here are the stage, the Spot Light, and the LMs for the clothing and hair. (These are included in the notecard of this sequence.)

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER
Choreographing a song  the way i do is some what simple. There's few things i do and not necessarily in this order.
1..Play the song and run threw your dances, find the animations you feel (some think) fit the song,and list of them on a note card. I try to get at least 8 on that list.
2.. If the music has lyrics, I go to a website and copy them on to a note card in world.

So now i have 2 cards like so


For the most part music/songs are put together using a,[Intro] [Verse] [chorus]and most will place a [bridge]and or [solo

So..with my 2 lists ill start copying and paste the dances to the sections mentioned above. Theres a little variation with different songs..but thats it basically.

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER
The image called ‘Umbrella Dance’ and the tune ‘Voodoo Satin Dolls’ inspired this dance.
I used it for one of our Circus scenes. I like to use Google Documents to create my sequenses. I have just the right tools: charactor count, line numbering, sharing with others to View or View & Edit, and much more. How I use Google Documents to make Choregraphing easier for me will be found on the Blog.

THIS IS A DANCE CHOREOGRAHED TO THE SONG HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN BY HALEY REINHART.
MY CHOICE OF SONG TODAY HAS A FEW DIFFERENT TEMPO CHANGES. AFTER LISTENING TO THE SONG QUITE A FEW TIMES I STARTED TO PREPARE MY DANCE TRYING TO MAKE IT AS DRAMATIC AS THE SONG, I ADDED A FEW ANNIMATIONS AT THE BEGINNING TO MAKE THE DANCE FEEL AS IT WAS TELLING THE STORY OF THE SONG.

Hello.  My name  is Ric Lyle.
I'm going to start inviting everyone I can see to dance on my hud with me for the next 10 minutes or so. Accept if you'd like.
Today I am going to show you how I approach dancing in SL. I know some of what I will say you already know, but you might find something useful
It's a little crowded here so try to give yourself as much room as you can. Let me know if you want to go for a ride, lol.
 I am a free style dancer. I've never developed a sequenced dance routine.
To me, dancing in SL, or developing a dance routine starts with the music. The music is everything! You have to "feel it" inside.
Any routine that I develop is "timed" to the music; dance animations, costume changes, story, and special effects.
However, I am not so perfect, or practice enough, that I will perform a routine exactly the same every time, especially when it comes to changing dance animations.
So once I determine the music I will be using, I start trying dance animations that I think will work for the music, primarily in terms of tempo.
I generally separate music and animations into three categories: 1) slow tempo, 2) medium temp, and 3) fast tempo.

 I generally use about 3-5 dance animation per song, depending upon how much other stuff (costume changes, storytelling, or special effects) is also occurring during the song.
 I never use the same animation twice during a routine, and I am fairly faithful about keeping up on the dances at my favorite animation stores.
Once I've narrowed down the dances for a routine I ensure that they will be performed in the right order and develop a good sense of when I will switch animations as the music plays.
I generally only use 1-3 loops of a dance animation before I change animations.
I try to change animations when the dance animation is close to "center" to avoid a lot of "herky-jerky" movements. But I am not so perfect in this, lol.
When dancing a group of other dancers on my hud, I follow the same process as above in developing a routine.
However, I prefer to keep all dancer physically close together in order to increase the likelihood that all of us will appear in sync. I also change animation frequently, again to increase visual synchronization.
Let's just dance for a few minutes.

That my friends is all I have to say today. Thank you for listening and for allowing me to control your bodies, lol

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER
Most of my routines are freestyle.
First, I find song(s) with lyrics that inspire me.
Then, I look for dance animations that can support a phrase or phrases in the song(s).
For this routine today, Don't Look Back, you will see how the dance aos I chose compliement phrases in this song.
My choreography for this routine was performed as a group. For today, I have adjusted the routine to be performed as a solo.
In the beginning of the song there our 4 Don't Look Back refrains. So each of the 4 dancers turned to face the audience after each refrain.
Another example, after Abranimations Sky Dance, the phrase in the song says "down to the ground".
Fortunately, the Sky Dance ao fit real well with cherry pips - Sine Wave
The theme of this routine: live a life with no regrets; dont look back at your mistakes.
The choreography is based on RL Cirque du Soleil and was performed by Fusion Dance Crew's production of "The Circus".
So look for those dance aos in the routine that support phrases/lyrics of this awesome song and ENJOY:))

This song was brought to my attention recently by a friend. My much loved secondlife partner (my Master for those of you familiar with such) passed away in real life September 2nd 2011. This sequence seemed to just dream itself up for me as I listened with tears to the music.  (rest in peace Samos Madrigal)
