In Topic: Adobe Character Animator - Thoughts?

I haven't looked into it in too much detail, but the fact the only way back into AE is via image sequences sounds like a show stopper for me.

 

DUIK is quite a different thing. It's a script UI Panel that assists in the rigging of IK characters, amongst other things.  Compared to 3D or 2D software tools designed for native character animation, it's quite a cumbersome workflow.  But if you have the patience and skill, you can achieve some quite nice results, and you get to keep everything in After Effects with all it's other tools, integration and whatnot.  There are other IK rigging scripts for AE but DUIK is the most full-featured.

For me personally it's more about me having multiple bases from which I do my own thing. Sometimes I need to be nearer the centre of town.

Right, thanks Robert.  Even though the nMP has some aging components, there isn't really anything with that level of CPU / GPU power in such a small form factor.

Yeah, i was hoping I could find something with a bit more punch in the CPU - maybe 6 or 8 core; and a desktop series GPU.  But it does look like PC laptops are the only thing that's portable enough.  I'm pretty much back to waiting for the next MacPro which I'm not holding my breath for. That could easily be another 12 months.

Pretty sure Boxx do a (very expensive) render slave which is supposed to sit on top of your main workstation. Not sure what you'd do for video out on that.

 

The issue you're going to face is that most cases are designed with expansion in mind rather than portability.

 

Origin offer rather revolting looking mobile workstations http://www.originpc..../eon17-slx-pro/

You mean the RenderPro ? Looks ok but seems like it's integrated graphics only. Shame
