The old 3DS models were getting nervous ...

Word on the street was they wanted a piece of the Pixar distribution action but they were slowly getting phased out ... showing up free on websites that still issue free Babylon Five meshes.

No one was rigging them anymore.

Times were getting dicey when an unsuspecting LowMax was seen on the wrong side of the tracks. A few of the South End boys ... Busted Slinky, Crazy Lego and Pumpkin Map called their boys by 3DCafe ... BigHead Lou, Dolly Poly-GONE and Textureless Mouse

... and rolled up on LowMax one stormy night ... (

Thank you one and all for the opportunity to do a little something on CGScociety. I'm really trying to get better with animation and storytelling in general. I want to thank those that I didn't get a chance to thank earlier in the development thread ... apparently some of the thread didn't get to me and I read your critique a little late. Hopefully everything fell into place as you suggested. All in all, a great learning experience.

Clip stats:

Software: 3DS Max, After Affects, Premiere (for stringing together)
Models: LowMax by Peter Starostin and the free random models found all over the net.
Renderer: VRay with a Scanline twist (smile)

Umm.... It's rendering so hold your horses :D

edit soon

For now here's a playblast. Two things:
1. I don't know why the picture frame disappears for one frame when he goes to pick it up.
2. I plan on fading out at the end so it looks like it ends abruptly but this is all the frames I've animated, all 1080 of them :D (

Ha, I can center and make the picture linkable too :p

edit: (12 hrs later...)
Yay! Finished rendering, finished post-production :bounce: (
