This might be a question for JohnL3d...

 

I may have a use for a 'sound triggered' action... and remembered that A:M V18 has a new feature called 'Amplitude'. IS THERE any instructions on enacting this new technology? I searched the forum, found some movies that John had made... just wondering what the process is to find it, get it to work, and what properties it can control.   ?

It can control a pose based on the volume and frequency of the sound  am not at home now but will try to post basic  tut either tonight or tomorrow

This is basic tut   (I rushed the  idea so if there are any questions etc please ask)

 

 

You have a model and set up a percent pose slider that  controls  model  you can have more than 1 pose and sound and or frequency but this is basic

so we have model with pose in chor have an action with just the sound on the model then we go into the models pose as pictured below right click and pick amplitude

This will show window  were you select same sound  and set low and high percent of pose   you can then hit  visualize and see how the sound frequency effect  the loudness(amplitude) of the sound and select accordingly (hit escape key to end visualization)

this will add info to  pose settings 

 

Then you can  play chor and see results

Perfectly clear. Thank-You very much John! I hope you worked out your car situation. I ended-up using a similar effect in Adobe After Effects called Trapcode Sound Keys, but the client got weirded-out by the tight reaction to the audio. BUT- boy do I EVER want to give amplitude a try now that I know how straight-forward a plug-in it is to use.

Is amplitude working in latest V19? I tried it and got unusable results... is it picky about the .wav or .mp3 specs?
