Nice, thanks. You mentioned we could use characters made by other people but I was planning to adapt current ones - is it permissable to use props made by other people as Icky kindly offered me some assistance with those?

No problem. The only stipulation is that you are responsible for all of your own entry's animation.

ATTENTION

In order to drag and drop the sound file into Maya's time slider, you'll need to convert it to a .wav file.

Here's one such program I found on download.com:

I'm sure there are alternatives out there.

RULE ADDITION!

15) You cannot shorten or lengthen the provided clips. You can, if you'd like, change their pitch.

Mike

I would like to enter the animation contest but I have two questions for you:

1). I am not sure if I will have time to complete the project so when is the submission deadline?

2). I have done animation in Animation:Master before but only a little bit in Maya, so would I be classed as Newbie?

1) Halloween at midnight (Oct. 31st). There is a possibility we'll extend it another month. Not sure yet.

2) That's up to you.

I'd certainly like an extension on this challenge, especially as I haven't been able to start work on it yet
