View Full Version : Darkfield - Vfx Animation Test

05 May 2008, 10:42 PM
So after watching War of the Worlds, I just thought I would try making my own alien walking machine. I drew up some thumbnails and started to constuct it within Maya. It wasn't full blown with details because I wanted to just practice compositing animated objects with live footage. I only just started using Aftereffects for about a month when I made this, so it was all still new to me. A friend of mine, Chris Luce suggested that I should post it.
The Character Rig was roughly assembled by myself, but I tried to animated it the best I could with the time frame I gave myself. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks!

nice work - not a great deal happens but the walk is fairly nice and the compositing too - keep it up :) maybe try doin a more dynamic looking up at it angle? :)
