Description
Someone requested a trumpet with working tone valves. Well this one has flexing tone valve and the spital valves work as well.

So, my trumpet model will now have 2 flavours, the original called trumpet.mdl and this one called trumpetbb.mdl (the bb stands for bellowing bell). The original will only have the original skins, the new bb model will have the original skins and the 2 new shiny metal ones.

The reason I created a new model was so that if anyone had already created vidoes or posters using the original they would not be affected by this new model. The old model should be replaceable with the new by bringing the new into scene and locking the bones from the old to the new, then zeroing the new into position. then by applying the playhead to the new. The bell is controlled by a new flex control.

Have fun with it. - I did by putting the Red Team on a Blue Base (on purpose, consider it a victory ritual after a capture!!)

To make the controls known add the following to the "Body" portion of the sfm_defaultanimationgroups.txt config file.
(It is located in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\platform\cfg Folder)


//Trumpet

"control" "valve1"
"control" "valve2"
"control" "valve3"
"control" "bip_body"
"control" "bip_valve1"
"control" "bip_valve2"


// For the Trumpet with Bellowing Bell

//TrumpetBB

"control" "valve1"
"control" "valve2"
"control" "valve3"
"control" "bell"
"control" "bip_body"
"control" "bip_valve1"

Includes:
trumpet\trumpet.mdl
trumpet\trumpetbb.mdl

I forgot to update the update... Model is now uploaded. When you subscribe you will now get 2 models, one named trumpet.mdl (the original with the 2 original skins) and trumpetbb.mdl. The trumpetbb is the one with the expandable bell, I did this just so that I wouldn't screw up anyone's scenes where they used the original. The trumpetbb has the 2 new shiny skins.

Quick follow up gang. The model is complete and I've added some more realistic skins, but I'm having problems render the scenes I'm using it in. Renders are freezing, so I'm suspecting that it might be a command I'm using in the vmt's that is causing problems. I thought I was going to be able to have it up tonight, but I won't post it until I get a good render using the new model. Stand-by to stand-by. If you want to see what it looks like, check this out. It will be the promo if I get this thing to render.

No, I just thought it'd be a really useful thing to have. Thank you very much!

Did you need it for a Saxxy Entry?
Pte Jack  [author] Nov 12, 2013 @ 5:48pm

Wait for the Saxxy's to finish and I'll post the change file.. I don't want to risk anyone's videos with an update because the sliders have changed.

Understood, hmmmmm

Like just to make the very end of the opening wider. Like in cartoons and such where the bell of a horn actually gets wider the louder the sound coming out is.

Kind of hard to make a flex to do that with the various restriction placed on flexes. The other questions that comes to mind are what part of the bell, and how large?
