Introduction: "Patches" the Digital Pumpkin

DIY Halloween Contest

Second Prize in the
DIY Halloween Contest

I created Patches the digital pumpkin for Halloween night. The digital character's mouth automatically animates in sync with spoken or other audio. Rear-projected on a giant home-made screen, Patches was a hit with Trick-or-treaters last year!

Good Job! What you make it in?

he sed at the beginning it was in flash

A dollar short dude and a couple years to late.

So cool! Great job!

Well. This IS Instructables. How about a Tutorial? Then again. If I knew how to do something as cool as this. I wouldn't give it away for free either.

The application was created using Flash CS3. Graphics are a set of 2d images I created from a 3d model. You don't really see it in the video, but there are several eye expressions and some other "personality" tools too (eyes can look up, down, left, right, etc.) Mouth reacts to the audio input, other eye styles and various media controlled via keyboard keys. Thanks for the comments! Tim
