View Full Version : animation gallery..

Wouldnt it be a cool idea to have a gallery of animations, small tests, runs walks, character pieces, animal stuff etc,etc. It would be great resourse for people to study. Also you could have scene files.

I think this is an excellent idea, especially having animation scenes available to download.

While a gallery for animation seems like a great idea, and one that an individual can learn alot from, it lends itself into bandwidth woes and I would be amazed if something like that ever got off the ground.

In regards to having files available, I personally think that is a bad idea. Sharing rigging techniques/modelling tips through tutorials is very common...however, sharing animation can lead to alot of stolen work.
Animation is one of the harder elements of CG for most people to do successfully. The temptation to "augment" an existing animation and claim it as your own might be too great for a CG artist struggling with animation.


Just my 2.5 cents...

As with sharing files, i now think yourll have real problems:thumbsdow with copyright, so yep i dont think its a good idea. But with clips i dont mean massive short films, i just mean walk cycles, run cycles, timing tests, for people to look at , maybe 500k avi or mov You can still imbead copyright text behind the animation. E.g you could have a clip of lip-sync, or someone standing up or jumping, or an animal cycle.Most people submit stuff like that here all the time for people to look, but if they were in one place. It would be one massive recource!.I would be just like a stepping stone.

How about an animation gallery but everyone has to provide their own link? Maybe you just show a thumbnail and description here.

This is a good idea.. Has anyone gone ahead and created a library of test animations/cycles and such?
If so, what's the url?
