Wow - you did that in your spare time in a week?!!! Very well done. Love the microphone stand that folds out. The atmosphere and cinematography are very nice. The lip synch is a little off, but the overall quality of the piece is superb!

Your friend's going to love it, I'm sure.

THanks siouxfire

APpreciate it.Ya i know the lipsync is a bit dodge,tell you the truth,I didnt have enough time to finish the animation the way i wanted to,but my next little week long project ill concentrate more on the animation.

Im working in Lightwave 7.5c so animation is kinda tricky.
Im trying out xsi also,but dont know it as well.

thanks again for your remarks. :)

No problem - I'd say you have something down that no one can teach you and that's a great style. The fact you just threw that together while considering the character design and environment is really impressive. I'm just getting started on XSI - keep us posted on your progress. From what I understand, the animation of characters is easier in XSI - no experience of that as I haven't used Lightwave, but that's what I've been told.

thanks man

XSI so far is Absoulutley wonderfull.But
Lightwave has a realtime renderer(fprime)not to mention im way faster in it.
Yet XSI has far better animation tools.So im experimenting using the fbx plugin to convert animation in xsi to lightwave.

But personally I think XSI is the way to go. :hmm:
