25 Years Later - animation in progress

Recommended Posts

Update the Montreal street. Made some needed changes visually but also for the render time from 3 minuted 11 seconds to 4 seconds a frame, a HUGE improvement. The tricks Used for this won't work for many of the other shots but I have to save on render time where I can!

Another test animation in a new set. Again. almost but not quite a real place. The real place is on West Newton Street in Boston where I saw the butterfly swarm with my friend.

A little more info at my blog.

Working on the two characters now.  The long haired guy  works more for me the goatee guy but he os not the worst I have ever done. I haven't started rigging yet but I should soon to keep this thing moving along. Using exiting  generic models and modifying them as  always but going for a less cartoon look than usual but not too real. The got guy needs to go through a coupe changes but the long haired guy goes through a dramatic one as the film progresses and that and how to change the clothing will have to be worked out.  I went over the script yet another time and cut a scene out that seemed superfluous for a film  that should be more simple.

First character's base model and rig is ready. He will have several changes of clothes and age a little, mostly he will be in cycling gear that I will have to make next. Using the surface deformer to add clothes to the base, rigged model and to seems to be working out.  I am sure once I start animation I'll find a million more faults, but that's how it goes! I

Almost 2 ½ minuted done so far and this is the final; render of test I showed here earlier. I have some re-rigging to do and re-weighting for the more involved scenes with the character, but nothing too serious.

Another quick update. The cyclist is in his hotel room after a long day's ride. I wanted it to be dark, sort of lonely and the TV and what is on it will show up in the next scene which takes place in the past. I didn't want the light for the TV to be too harsh and since there is a cinematic element to the res tooth film I thought some extra grain for the ow light situation would look appropriate.

Done... this was hard one to get through, mostly because of the sad memories but also 15 locations and more real looking human characters. I don't know any musicians anymore so I had to resort to old clips from my collection when I used Soundtrack Pro. I went for a more cinematic look especially with all the cycling shots.
