First off, thank you for all the great uses so many of you have put Morpheus (and Squirrely) to. You’ve pushed the rig in ways I hadn’t anticipated and it’s so exciting to see it.
This September, CG Monks will be starting a Morpheus 2.0 Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project. We have a lot of ideas and would love to get moving on the project but we want to try and find a way to fund development of rigs like Morpheus and Squirrely, tools, assets and other projects for the community we so loving being a part of. We reached out to many of our communities and a Kickstarter campaign was one of the common themes we kept hearing. So, we’re gonna give it a shot.
What we’re looking for now is quality versions of some of the great animations we’ve seen on the internet. So, if you’ve created a great animation with Morpheus and want to possibly be included on a best of video to be featured as a part of our campaign, please upload a good (hd is preferred) version of it to Vimeo and send me a link to the video – (no spaces) j j b u r t o n @ c g m o n k s . c o m. In your message, please list your name and an email or webpage if and as you want them specified.
I’ll post again when we have a better idea of when the kickoff date will actually be.
