Whittling Away…

Animation

Am I finished? That’s always a difficult question because the problem with computer based animation is you can keep on tweaking until your heart’s content, or as long as you need to scratch that damn itch, depending on your temperament.  There are lots of things I’d still like to add, some flowers in the meadow, some trees in the background, some clouds in the sky… hmm, we’ll see how I feel in a couple of days…

A Mighty Wind

Animation

Here is my first animation test! It is a little rough at the moment and certainly needs tweaking, but it gives a good impression of where the animation is heading.  I am working in Cinema 4D.  I am using Mograph to generate the leaves and bend deformers to rattle the tree, ladder and swing which I have rigged together with xpresso.  Next step is to smooth out the animation and then add further detail to the background and foreground.
