I'm sold... xtranormal.com

Some of these are better than films i see at film festivals! and it's solely generated by text!! I'm rarely impressed with computer technology, but xtranormal.com is incredible and hilarious. If I was an animator I would really be concerned... oh wait.. I am... anyway, If you're wondering where the future is.. pre-programmed actions using text. all this needs is professional voice acting, custom character design option, then tweeking by director, and you have a dialogue driven script and one hell of an entertaining film!!! I love how the awdwardness actually makes it funny!!!! My prediction.. we will see a lot more of this company and this concept. I feel like making a film right now and submitting it to film festivals, it would probably get more attention than one of my traditional animated short.. NEW TECHNOLOGY just fascinates everyone, it's so pathetic. Ok...on second thought.. i'll be here at my studio drawing. Here's my attempt at it.. Enjoy.

Post something we can fight about!

This site is great and hilarious.

There's no threat to the work we do posed by this technology. Do people no longer watch the NFL because they can just play Madden? If anything, "consumer"-side application of animation devices lead to a greater love and appreciation of the "professional" thing.

We're going to bring you animators DOWN, man! Watch out!

Thanks for the awesome write-up—you made our day. And BTW, I really don't think our work puts your livelihoods at risk.

soon man we will argue like the old days.. i'm bound to say something stupid that you can run with!

and hey rcg!!! nice work, amazing software.. let me know about that customize character design option and I will def use it!!!! (in other words, I want my designs to be in it, not the generated ones)

cheers.

rcg said...

Character customization is in the works, but a longer-term project, and not sure if it will be available on the web or on our future desktop software release—which also includes voice-capture and more.

For now, we're focusing on delivering tools for use by people with less expertise than you. Keeping it simple, safe.

I love this site and made a cartoon of my own.

A colleage of mine has some really funny films up already.

http://www.facebook.com/ext/share.php?sid=72979286374&h=VmPHl&u=VTAmv&ref=nf

But I caution you and everyone to read the Terms Of Service carefully. It's pretty clear that xtranormal owns the content. You can't submit it to a festival or even claim it as your own work.

In fact a mysterious animator took the time to type the TOS into the engine ... with I think hilarious results!

The proper youtube link sorry.

Awesome, that's funny.

Just yesterday I stumbled across the Xtranormal site and I made my own short film.

I called it "I can't believe it's animation". It's on my blog here

These were made with a desktop real-time 3D virtual performance tool. Not quite a s consumer orientated as xtranormal...

I don't really like the film. It makes me feel kind of numb. It might be funny if the characters had some life.

I don't doubt that you could make an entertaining film with this approach. It seems that entertainment is one thing, but animation another.

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!
