Why do people say "Happy Christmas?" the correct way to say it is MERRY CHRISTMAS ! anyways hope you all get good gifts and have a great time.

I dont think it matters......Happy, Merry, Joyeux all the same

Have a good one

elephantinc, just remember it's not about presents and money it's about the company you keep and the people close to you. Hopefully it turns out better for you throughout the day, and hopefully you're spending it with friends and/or family.

Ha, yeah i ate so much i was going to have to go to hospital....... but they couldn't fit me in the back of the ambulance :blush:

Hope everyone had a good one!

I had a great time with my family Plenty of gifts, plenty of food..... plenty of leftovers for boxing day

I hope all of you had at least half as much fun as i did.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah to all!
New years plan... actually start and complete a project from the beginning to the end instead of half doing everything.

In answer to Altadena: Yes I did, I got a couple actually on advanced character rigging. One from CG Toolkit and another from DT. Both are very good in their own ways. DT is aimed at more cartoon character rigs and the CG is more creature. Also included was a traditional Sculpting DVD which is over 2hrs long.

The CGtoolkit came with MuscleTK and a host of other stuff (mel scripts etc for easier blendshape creation, plus facial setup using a combo of GUI and blendshapes, which looks heaven to use.

There have been a few things Ive been itching to learn regarding character setup over the months and despite picking brains at work (to no avail) Ive finally got my answers. Once Ive tried and tested the certain techniques I will share them.

Steve: Motion Builder should be a doddle for a man of your calibre mate, Ive seen it in use at work, even I could do it.

Happy hols
Cheers
