    You're welcome. :)
    Xtranormal? I'll have to check that out.

    Yeah, 4 or 5 years ago, iClone did have a bit of a daunting learning curve for their animation process....but I do think it's eased up quite a bit since then.

    Gaaahhhhh!!!! I wanna get a new computer so I can run iClone again! My other ones are not long for this world.

    Yea, it's an early stand alone version from around 5-6 years ago. Since that time they went out of business and then another company Nawmal, purchased the software. They're just starting to release another version of it.
    Here's my link to my channel...

    Well Martock, it appears that I don't have PM access yet.
    I've appealed to the moderator for a rule change but short of that, we'll need to start a new thread for iClone Animation in order to chit-chat about the software.

    Sorry for posting here in this thread.

    No prob. It shouldn't take long for you to get PM access. Just make some more posts....ones of substance, of course, but in the meantime, we might be able to start a thread elsewhere. Perhaps not in the fan section, but elsewhere here on the board.

    Oh.... and there's no "c" in Martok. :)

    Yeah, it seems like the original poster wasn't serious about his project, since s/he bailed at the first hint of criticism. Personally, I think the "fan" wanted others to do the "heavy lifting". At the very least, s/he should have had a script ready before even approaching others for help. JMO.

    It sounded like he was serious about the idea, but it was far from the project stage.

    He should at least clear the idea with the Axanar people first, since he's borrowing from another fan's concept. It's simple courtesy.

    Unfortunately I don't understand the story, Klingons become confused by a song played over the comms and the Federation coordinates their attack based on a song? I think there may a confusion about the use of incidental music vs literal music.

    Come to think of it, the idea seems to be lifted from the old anime series "Super Dimensional Fortress Macross", otherwise known as "Robotech".

    Yeah, but for some reason, somebody replied on a posting I made back then rather recently....

    go for it refine your story, maybe a 10 min short as it seems more action oriented, the Axanar battle is not needed, you could just focus on the 4 year war and make your own. Maybe use mining ships in addition to the older starfleet ships. Maybe a scene where they retrofit some mining phasers to weapons grade. (you could even have the cliched scene with the engineer saying you'll only get one shot, maybe two, but it will pack a whallop)

    I would like to see your art please im me a link. Personally I wish I had the time to learn 3d modeling/ animation.
