    Dear Websleuths Members,

    I am very excited to welcome a professional crime scene animator to Websleuths.

    Our member grayhuze has offered to show us his work on the Arias case as well as perhaps put together animated scenarios on other cases discussed on Websleuths.

    Grayhuze will be here in a bit to tell you about his work and to show you the Arias animation.

    Please keep in mind the animation grayhuze has put together is based on his interpretation of the evidence.

    Thank you grayhuze for bringing something new and different to Websleuths.

    Hello everyone. Some of you may have seen my videos on youtube regarding the Arias case. I have also put some together on the McStay case and a couple of others. I really enjoy making animation and found out that
    I have some skills in recreating crime scenes and applying human animation to those scenes. I have a human motion capture system that I use as well. I recently was hired for my first paid criminal case where my animation was used. We won as well and the jury said the video helped them picture precisely what had happened to the victim. Here is the animation for that case. http://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=mzvneay8lNg

    Here was one of the first Arias videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBl3g8VVINs that moves around the crime scene with images.
    This one is a shot from above the bathroom and bedroom which shows the layout https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ykvk0RkWxWk
    This video shows that the shower door was open during the shower photo shoot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36rG2kGoL
    Here is another video that goes through the photo shoot shot by shot. Gives a better feel for what was going on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hz1ctsFu6bU

    Here is a video I created after being frustrated that I couldn't see what jodi was referring to during interrogation. It's probably one of my more creative videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQn-t44JcTg
    This one shows the proximity of the camera on some shower shots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quvKCWffn6o
    This video is long but is useful if you want to know about the blood spatter. I follow the testimony around the room using my 3d model of the Bathroom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swrR4d7Cn3A

    Very impressive work. Can you tell us what software you use? Do you have a background in graphics or video or did you just take this up in recent years? Thanks!

    I learned animation on my own originally. I used a few programs they were called poser, bryce3d and raydream 3d studio. This was back in the late 90s. In 2002 I went to the art institute for a degree in animation and media arts. after 2 years i went out and started a videography company but didn't use my animation skills that much for that job. I did however keep doing animation for fun. I currently am using 3d studio max, Poser 2014 pro with a plugin for 3d stuido max. I also used UVMapper pro. This allows you to put texture maps on objects. I also use the adobe production premium suite for putting together videos.

    Great work Gray, Is it OK to use these elsewhere as long as we give you the credit that you deserve. I love the gun first video even tough I don't believe it was first. But that video has me rethinking that for sure. I love what you are doing here and I hope you can have more of these used in trials. If you do please post them. it's fascinating.

    Tremendous work grayhuze! :bow:

    Saying :tyou: doesn't seem like enough :blushing;, however, I am doing so, and look forward to the public gaining a greater understanding through your animations. You are simply amazing!

    :)

    Wow, amazing job. I think she shot him first too. I think that she figured that the chances of him defending himself would be lower if she shot him first than if she had tried to stab him.

    that is interesting. You are good at this! My problem is if the gun was first, why not just keep shooting and killing him? I think that the shot cold have come when she stuffed him in the shower after.

    I think her goal was to kill him in the shower to minimize blood spatter and dna evidence. I think she forced him to sit in the shower then hoped to kill him with one shot. The gun jammed as she told in her Ninja story. Fortunately for justice, Travis did not die. If Travis had died with one shot, there wold be no bloody palm print, hair on top of blood, and no accidental photos on the camera. Jodi would be able to explain any hair in the house and other DNA because she was Travis' ex. But her plan did not work. The camera in the wash was intentional and that is why she took the time to delete the images from the camera. Had she planned on taking the camera, she would have just done that later. I think she bled onto the camera as well so placed it in the wash to destroy the camera and the bleach would destroy the DNA in the camera, which it apparently did. Anyhow, just some thoughts.
