    Thanks, Marvel! I'm glad that so many find them helpful. smile

    This next video on Snoop Animations was based on AFRLme's tutorial in the Wiki. I wouldn't have known how to do this without it. smile You can find it in the first page of videos.

    The Visionaire developers should be very, very, very thankful for that job! I can not believe that Visionaire has existed so long without detailed instructions or manual. This saves the forum certainly a lot of work.

    @redspark: You should let you pay for this great job wink

    Edit: I added a third "very" in my text above grin

    Thank you, Lebostein, very, very, very much. wink Actually, the developers have been incredibly supportive of these videos and I'm grateful for their advice and help. smile

    The one thing I wish I had for these tutorials is better sound quality. There is more background noise than I care to mention. smile I'm trying to find an inexpensive way to shield my Yeti microphone from it. However, I know nothing about sound engineering. roll

    @ James: I've heard of people rigging up all sorts of amusing shields for their microphones before... I'm sure you will find some extremely cheap, pretty much free DIY solution via google. wink



    I think one of my old music producer friends ended up making a makeshift one out of old t-shirts or jumpers or some shit. I forget.

    Thanks. Acoustic foam is really expensive around here so I have been looking at DIY solutions. Right now I have a box with bedding foam in it that I have my mic in. I started using that in my second or third video which helps and only costed $13 for the foam. However, I think I can find something better.

    There are portable sound booths for less than $50 on eBay and amazon and some professional Gobos for $150. I think I'm going to order one of the portable booths and see what it is like.

    I believe the foam stuff used under laminated wooden flooring is also valid, as it is technically a sound dampener too - I'm talking about the thicker foam & not the silver/white colored stuff. A roll of that is pretty cheap & you can cut & layer it up as many times as you need to suit.

    I know acoustic foam is really expensive. I had a catalog a couple years back which listed all the different kinds & their general price & some of the prices were ridiculous. However most forms of foam are ok, even that cheap spongy yellow stuff you can probably find in most DIY or textile stores. Every little helps & all that. wink

    Well, may be I can wrap another layer of foam on the outside of my box. I still have enough bedding foam left. That may help some more. smile

    hehe grin

    I was wrong about the t-shirt thing I mentioned. It was for a makeshift pop filter, as theirs had just broken & they needed a temporary quick replacement.

    Well, it wouldn't surprise me. I've heard of people doing voiceovers from their closet to cut down on sound reflection. smile

    I think it would be impossible where I currently live to do a clean recording, even if I had an expensive professional condenser mic, shield (gobo thingy), pop filter &/or a recording booth. Apartment building walls always seem to be as thin as paper. Just opening my window a crack lets sound in about 10x more than when it's closed & it's bad enough when it's closed.

    Great tutorials! Well-structured, not too long and easy to understand.
    I've one question about the snooping-system. I'm still using 3.7 - there it is possible to place the snoop animation anywhere you like without having to create an interface for it. My snoop animation i.e. is an animation of a scene object. Did this change in version 4 or did you just create the interface to have everthing better organised and find the animation more quickly?
