I worked for a while with MoCap data, but that was a very long time ago!The video up there is just a blocking, the wheels will be spinning in the final shot Inshallah!-Manar
Hi Manar, I love your work! I truly hope I can animate as good as you, it'll be fun. And thanks for sharing your experience! Keep it up
You're welcome :)-Manar
I want to ask you if you animated the camera movement ? if so , it would be great if you made an article about camera animating , cuz I know it can affect the animation quality , and I would know if the bird animating is included in this class
In this calss we were supposed to animate only Stu character, but I added the bird to make the shot more interesting, & my mentor was kind enough to guide me through.Yes I did the animation of the camera, I'll try to write something about camera animation in the future, but for now I'm going to copy & paste a reply I wrote to a colleague of mine at AM in regards of camera animation, Hope you'll find it helpful :)""" Actually I didn't study about camera animation but in the past few years I got the chance to work in places where my supervisors are very picky in terms in camera moves, Of course watching lots & lots of movies helps as well because you could refer to them subconsciousnessly while animating.For example, while I was working on the motorcycle shot.. my brain kept recalling this shot from Terminator 2 (my favorite movie) where Arnold on his motorbike chasing young John running away from that mercury guy in the big truck lolAnyways, I advice you to watch 'Hollywood Camera Work' course http://www.hollywoodcamerawork.us/mc_chapterlist.html its really great, especially for shots with acting & dialog.as for action shots kind of camera moves, the main thing is to keep it simple & smooth, as close to real life camera as possible, 45mm to 55mm lens gives a very nice perspective with less distortion, And always keep camera curves very clean in the graph editor, any slight bump in the curves will look like an earthquake in the perspective view"""
