First Attempt at 3D Animation
This past fall semester was rough! Several large group projects and trying to learn how to animate in Maya. I must admit that I was at least familiar with rendering, texturing, and modelling techniques but animation is definitely another powerful, and convoluted, beast all together. Hopefully I can spend some time this summer after senior project to refine and re-render this animation; but in the meantime here is a bit of what I was able to scrape together in December 2010.
I utilized the Trax Editor to try and save myself some time animating repeated animations such as the running. And am proud to be able to say that all assets such as the design, concept, and story are original. The music is by the extremely talented cellist Giovanni Sollima.
