While Im sure thats true I would also wager most of your users dont use render farms or the like and are just humble artists and hobbyists who may benefit from such a feature and making it easy to disable would not impact thoes that dont want it, you should always seek to satisfy as much of your use...

I dont believe a pop-up notification slows anyone down, an audio notification would be good too, but is the millisecond it takes to click "Ok" that much of a hindrance. Regardless, the solution is simple, heve a checkbox on the dialog for "Do not show this again", this way the people that want the n...

Blender only have 'blender units'

If you think about it though, it really dont make a difference what you label the units right? you can make the units mean whatever you want them to mean to you, 1 blender unit can represent an inch, a centemeter, its all relative.

Its true, you definetly have to shop around if you want to find a decennt cheap, and most of all be patient, dont buy the first thing you see, the perfect one will find you. That said, for around 400 bucks its possible find to find one, you could easily get something like an athlon x2 5000+ with a g...

Are you running vista? that was your first mistake, vista is a resource hog and required a top end system to run well(if thats what you wanna call it, it is vista lol), you should revert back to xp.

It really is a simple concept, you create your own visems for the character (the lip positions/facial expressions) then you tie thoes to the specific sound you want them to be related to, so lipsync would work no matter what you character was because you made all the visems.

Ill have to respectfully disagree, I think it could be very effective. All you need is basic voice recogniton software, as long as it can type what you say its enough, for emotion you simply make perameters in the software that determines what emotion is being displayed, for example frames 500-1500 ...
