The Disney studio mixed live action and animation in several notable films (which are primarily considered live-action): With the commercial and technological success of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam, a number of live-action/animated films followed from other studios, including Cool World, and Looney Tunes: Back in Action - though none of them have had any major commercial success equal to Roger Rabbit or Space Jam.

CドライブをOS丸ごと引越す方法。SSD/HDD交換はEaseUS Todo Backupでサクッと簡単に | Ask for Windows Cドライブ(システムドライブ)の容量が不足してきた場合や、パフォーマンスの問題、不具合など色々なパターンがありますが、何らかの理由で、システムが入っているHDDやSSDを交換したい時があるかと思います。 新しいドライブで新規インストールを行うのも一つの方法ですが、旧ドライブからのデータ移行や各ソフトの設定バックアップ、インストール後のセットアップなど、「Cドライブの引越し」には何かと手間がかかります。 そこで登場するのが、非常に強力なディスクのクローンの作成機能を持つ「EaseUS Todo Backup」。 このアプリは、MBR領域などの起動ディスク情報までを含む、完全なるCドライブのクローンを作成することができますので、「Cドライブの引越し」にこれを使わない手はありません。 ここでは、EaseUS Todo Backupを使った「Cドライブの引越し」方法を紹介します。 ※ここでは有料版の「EaseUS Todo Backup home」を使って紹介していますが、フリー版でも同様の操作が可能です。 ディスクのクローンを作ってCドライブを丸ごと引越す 手順はとても簡単です。 まずはEaseUS Todo Backupをインストールし起動します。 EaseUS Todo Backupを起動すると、画面右上に「クローン」ボタンが用意されていますのでまずはこれをクリック。 「クローン」のボタンをクリックすると次の画面が表示されますので、クローンの元(ソース)になるディスクを選びます。 次にディスクの内容をコピーする先(ターゲット)を選び「次へ」をクリックします。 ここは良く注意してディスクを選びましょう。 「実行」をクリック、クローン作成が開始されます。 あとは、ソフトにお任せで数十分待つだけです。 なお、今回は、128GBのSSDから320GBのHDDへのコピーを行なおうとしていますが、ディスクのパーティションのサイズも完全に同じ形でコピーが作られますので、ターゲットのHDDの後ろ側に空き領域ができることが表示されています。 クローン作製中。 クローン作成が完了しました。 実データ量60GBほどの128GB SSDからのクローン作成に要した時間は15分弱です。 しかし、クローンを作成した先のHDDは、先ほど見たように後ろ170GBちょっとが空いたままになっています。 パーティションサイズを調整する

Maya Tutorials -- Rigging for Animation Maya Tutorials -- Rigging for Animation Page 1 of 7 Nothing is more frustrating to an animator than a slow rig. This tutorial will show you some simple tricks and techniques that will help you speed up your characters for animation. The ultimate goal is real-time playback. If you feel like all your rigs are just a garbled mess, or just need a little guidance to get you moving in the right direction, then this tutorial will help you get the ball rolling. I’ll try to keep the “boring” stuff to a minimum, and get right to the point with what you need. Using Different Resolutions: Having different resolutions of the character you are working with can dramatically increase the speed of your rig. Low Resolution: Your low-resolution rig should be more accurately modeled to fit your character. High Resolution: This is your final rig, with the high-res model bound to the joints. Using different resolutions for rigging can create problems, too. I’d like to make a quick note about referencing.
