Update part I of II complete!
So I have my computer case set up with a newly installed motherboard and some other items. The CPU I have now is not only old and slow, but not compatible, so that will be the next part of the upgrade. After that I'll be loading all my other components from the setup I'm currently using to the new one. If all goes well, this new setup is going to set the future for POWERFUL renders in the future. Even with just a new CPU and motherboard, things are going to start running rather smoothly, but I'll finally be able to go back to making progress rather than the "doing what I can with what I have" kind of scenario. Super stoked and excited!! I'll finally be back on track with my animated short film
But along with that, I'm potentially moving up the ladder again (financially). With the new placement in my employment, I'll look toward not only making further improvements in hardware, but adding some powerful tools to my arsenal, as well as learning new techniques that I haven't been able to touch yet.
While I continue to work on those things, I am currently using the skeleton of a setup I have to create custom poses, morphs, and scenes for Poser Pro. This is a feature I have finally learned, where I can spend one of the most time consuming parts of animating. Instead of having to start from scratch on every shot/scene I'll have folders of custom presets specifically made to suit my needs. And I can use those presets and create variations over time as well as share them with other Poser users
