Who was the first?  I have been on a number of business trips out of the country with more to come, so my time on the Forum has been limited and will continue to be limited for at least 6 more weeks.  But to come back to news such as this is bad enough but now there was another passing that I missed?

This is horrible.

Desperately sad news. Like others, I was always struck by how relentlessly helpful and responsive Dan was, either in the forums or via email. His tutorial videos gave me an excellent crash-course in rigging, and on more than one occasion he was generous enough to give me assistance that really got me out of a hole, without ever asking for anything in return - although I was always happy to buy another plug-in to say thanks :)

A real loss to the community.

Adios Dan.

I sure wish someone would take up his franchise. With all his videos and tools that allow so much automation into the animation game, it's a shame to see it fade away with it's currant users.

Adios Dan! Always a pleasure to work with and amazing tools. I too hope someone picks them up, maybe MAXON could integrate them into their tool set?

Safe journey my friend.

 

Rory.

Hi All, i just discovered that my friend Cactus Dan is passed away. I already wrote to the dear Dan on skype some months ago without, of course, any answer. Dan helped me a lot time in the past. Was a great problem resolver regarding all most unknow parts of sdk. 

He had invited me to his land, he always talked to me about horses, every night, at certain time,  he was telling me that the hot soup was ready and I imagined him as he was, cowboy dressed with his spoon in his hand in his little house. I had several pictures of him and he had my ... i'm sorry about the photo, i lost them on an defected Hard Disk. I'm sorry and very sad for this news, it seems impossible.

Rest in peace Dan :(

Cactus Dan was always nice to me here on the forums.  I've never been so sad by someone I've never known.  I remember a post where someone was asking for a special bone structure that would move a springy tentacle like arm around using ik.  He made a special script just for that singular person.  It worked so good too.  It's amazing how talented he was.

 

Sorry for the late post.  I was on a big project here for a long while and only recently started visiting the forums again.  I had to express my sorrow for his loss.

 

You will be missed Dan
