Busy Walk WIPs

Posted by aleeCO on January 8, 2012 in Animations

Let’s get this started. First pass of blocking. I was pleasantly surprised at how much faster I’ve gotten! Still plugging away… V1: V2: took out the textures. Changed the composition. Changed the posing in the walk — he’s leaning back now. Trying to play with stretching –looking a bit weird right now — but Ill [...]

Texting distraction (new shot planning)

Posted by aleeCO on January 6, 2012 in Animations, References

I wanted to do a body mechanics shot that is short with one action that still has commentary. That way I can nail the action, and play around with pushing the timing and poses. So…this reflects our common distraction with technology. texting, texting, texting… Video reference: sketches:

Class 2 Progress Reel

Posted by aleeCO on December 13, 2011 in Animations

Easily, the strongest shot on is the snowball push. I feel like that shot alone captures what I learned this term. But this is an extended, edited version for fun. Dynamics/particles/collisions outside of AM on my own time. Had fun, like I do

Particles and Dynamic surfaces (It’s snow heavy playblast)

Posted by aleeCO on December 8, 2011 in Animations

Just a playblast. I worked on effects while waiting for a critique on the animation. there’s a few different solutions in here. (using dynamic surface, collisions, cloud particles for snow, multipoint particles for crumbles, animated vertices on snowball).

While I was waiting for a critique… I was going through some work from earlier in the term (I played with putting a camera on Ballie and with a shark). Why not combine the two? Here’s the jump test I did in October, that I used for the shot: Just experimental

It’s snow heavy – polish wips

Posted by aleeCO on December 4, 2011 in Animations

I removed 50 frames from beginning of the original shot, so I would have more frames to make appropriate timing. It’s more realistic compared the the darty/cartoony feel I tried earlier. Still have some kinks to smooth out — tricky trying to sell moving holds and strains without making it feel wobbly.

Crazy Peter Parkour – submitted

Posted by aleeCO on November 12, 2011 in Animations

Smoothed out the arcs and cleaned up the poses to make it feel more natural. Note for self… tracking arcs: create a locator, parent it to the top of the head, then use the track arc tool. Loop this.
