And even MORE geek tech...

So since time is a factor I have to make two other purchases one to speed things up one too slow things down....

Ya know real live humans come fully modelled, boned^_^ , rigged and skinned 0_o so they are quick to animate...time savers... I will be utilizing live action where appropriate to save time animating... since the world will be 3d I will need to shoot them on a greeen screen and composite them... HSM will be rendered at the same res as WATS 1920x817 24p.... And to get clean keys from live action I need a video camera that can shoot 1080p uncompressed... WHOA WHOA thats gotta be HELLSA expensive right? Not if you know the little secret I was first informed about on Stu Mashwitz's Prolost blog... Canon's mini cams from its Vixia line shoot 1920x1080 and can output it uncompressed from the HDMI port.... So ya need the cam I dont have that yet... a drive capable of 150 megs/sec + I got that.... and a Mac or PC with a Blackmagic card with HDMI in dont have that YET...

So after looking at them all I'll be getting a Canon Hf100 for my live action cam it costs $650.00

AND since I love it in my FACE even though I'm just a hack... I'm going to do some stopmo in HSM as well... I still have my trusty 300d that I shot WATS... BUT since I'm like upgrading I'll be getting the new model...the 450d because it now has live video out... this means I can now use all the fancy stopmo previews programs to do onionskinning and other fancy stuff it costs $740.00 (without lens)

So after these last few geek tech posts you have a pretty good idea of the gear I'm using to make HSM... although I didn't talk much about software...hmmm....
