    Is there anyone who ever made a talking robothead ? How dit you do that ?
    I'm working on one right now as an intro for a show but it is quite heavy. Maybe some of you guys have better ideas than drawing every frame by hand till it runs smooth.

    I have seen a few clients do talking robot heads. This is relatively easy and you should just look at all of the example laser shows that we provide because I am sure there is at least one, and maybe two that have this kind of animation.

    It can be done in a number of ways. One way is to use two or three frames, and do morphs or key-frame morphs between them. Another way is to use MAX or Cinema 4D along with one of our conversion tools like LC-MAX or LC-4D. Note that LC-4D is free with LD2000 PRO and will also be free with LD2000 BASIC as part of the 4.0 release. If anyone has LD2000 BASIC now, even before the official release of 4.0, I will issue you a license for LC-4D.
