Only TheDesec gets it mannnn... Live cartoon Rollplay! Its like..the Saturday morning cartoons we all want to see as adults!
So, because I like avoiding doing actual work and would rather spend my time wasting time... and I'm a bit obsessive..
I isolated Adams webcam from a Nebula Jazz VOD and had the puppet animate itself based on his movement just to test out how a live stream would be. So the eye blinks, eye movement, eye brow, lip-sync, head movement.. its all automatically done by the program interpreting his webcam(my horrible rip of it anyways) and audio in real time. There is no set up.. it just recognizes eyes, eyebrows, the nose, the chin and mouth by itself.
I should have hit the "set default pose" though before recording because the Adam-puppets eyes weren't centered at the start and so are slightly off.
Stuff like the hair dangling is just a physics based thing.. the head moves and the hair is like on a spring and reacts.
Hey... maybe a One-shot.. or a one hour segment of the 4 hour streams.
Should I stop? Do I require some kind of help to stave off these dreams of real time animated shows?
Oh, this video is unlisted because I didnt feel right about uploading JP's content publicly even to just show off this technology.
P.S. Yes I threw in a still of my earlier attempt at a Eugene over dodger, even though I did it in a different style and its no where near as good as some of the yellow-green versions I've seen posted here.
