    Well, you're probably going to have to do a bit more than animating a bouncing ball before anyone hires you.

    Dude, what the heck?

    Did I do anything to you, plus, how am I stupid\trolling?

    P.S. I hate trolls.

    Plus, I'm ANIMATING. How could I animate if I were stupid?

    Yeah, but it was just a test to see if I could animate. It was succesful.

    Try to animate some more stuff before you try to get people to hire you. A bouncing ball is incredibly simple and doesn't involve any complex movements or shit. Just about anyone could animate a bouncing ball if they tried.

    Oh, I get it. It's ironic. Your both trolling and stupid, while accusing me of trolling\stupidity, while infact YOU are trolling and is indeed stupid.

    Either that, or you like to spam pictures for unrelated topics and then you post the same thing, then the same thing, and spam till you get banned by our finest moderators.

    You are way too dumb to argue with, you should've understanded the first image that meant that the animation you made was too simple and noone would hire you for that. I've got nothing more to say so I will just do this.

    Well, what animation did YOU do?

    And I'm dumb? You've got an administrator's warning that you might be gagged for long.

    I don't wanna argure with an ignorant bitch.

    Have a good day, and while your doing that, spam some more worthless pictures while accusing people of doing too "Simple" things while YOU haven't animated at all.

    Just ignore Rybur. As for getting "hired" by a studio, it's not something that you have to do. Try animating some stuff on your own first, and possibly releasing them to this site. Once you have some experience and a couple of submissions under your belt, it'll be a lot easier to get into a studio. Even so, studios are not completely necessary to release stuff. Out of all my studio submissions, there is only one where I have actually worked directly with another member of the studio.

    I can't model :(

    I can probably reanimate the USP though, if you give me it's model.

    You don't need to know how to model. All you do is find an existing skin that has the model you want, decompile it and take the model from that. From there you just animate it from scratch. It's a bonus if you learn to compile the model back into the game (CS:S for example), but there are some people that will do it for you if you do not want to learn.

    I've asked a guy if he wants me to Re-animate his USP re-texture, how do I take models and place them into Blender?

    You first must decompile the MDL files (located in cstrike/models/weapons in CSS) with a decompiler. From there it will give you a bunch of SMD files, which you can import into Blender. Once that is done, you will need an hand rig, and you will merge this into the scene. Once again, Devieus would be the proper one to talk to about this.

    You do know that hand rig is ment for 3Dmax, not for BLender, right?

    That's Devieus.

    And you get a hand rig when you decompile a weapon, it's called 'hands.smd', which is the default hands; you can put constraints to the fingers if you fear any motion seems jerky, but brezier animation waves should cover that nicely.

    1) make releases for any supported game cs franchise most recommended

    2) become more popular by being good in what you do on the site

    3) search around the studios for those who you think are interesting and do a join request, or if you become popular enough the studios will come to you.

    4) work together with those studios to make quality releases

    5) expand your experience and start back at nr1.
