Yeah! - Hero In Shinning Armor :), Spellcraft Studio (Animation)

Title: Yeah! - Hero In Shinning Armor :)
Name: Spellcraft Studio
Country: Germany
Software: 3dsmax 4, Brazil, Cs 3, Clothfx, Bodypaint 2


I like to introduce the hero of my short film project "yeah! - the movie" (still in production)...
(divx=640x480; mov=480x360; mpg=320x240)

this test-animation was done to check out some cloth simulation with complex character animation (fast moves, jumps and turns)...

well... what was meant to be a 2 week test turned out as a 6 week try and error... with the conclusion that complex cloth simulation is still a nightmare...

Best Regards,

Saw this on your site the other day and i was wondering when you were going to post on CGT, fantastic job on the animation. Looks very very natural. Was it hand keyframed?

Looks like a mix of mocap and keys to me. The acting has that awkward, guy in a suit feel just moving around, not knowing what to do. I'm in a mocap suit so I have to just keep moving randomly.

Really cool just the same though. He's an interesting looking character.

beautiful! the character acting made me laugh, you could really get a good feel for what each one was all about, very cool. The texturing was also very nice, not over done, but it suited these characters well. sweet.

simply the best peice of "realistic" cg animation i've seen, even if it's mocap on the body, the facial animation is so well keyed. completely shames all those ironing board zombies that i've seen in other cg works (including and especially where they've used mocap) where they've been trying to go for realism (i realise this model is charicatured, but not to such an intense degree, and the animation just makes it feel totally real) love the little touches, like the tongue movement.

if you can keep up this level of quality throughout the project

The attitude , look & feel reminded me of a dear friend of mine.
I envy you whole-heartedly man. The entire yeahSeries is so awe-inspiring. I love the hero's facials too. Pure attitude man.

ps - when are you out with the making honey! it's long overDue.

btw - Is that a trick with the camera or has he moved closer to the camera towards the end? Very well executed either ways.
