How convenient that I just started playing around with Maya again, especially as I'm playing around with animation! I so have to join this - will prove good practice.

If you can pull it off, yes! You can combine the topics.

hey SirRon,

I might have unvoluntarily veiled my main inquiry in my last post due to advanced hysteria on my part, so I thought I'd better point it out again:

- starting to learn (2D) animation has been a long dream of mine and I just started out with a few bouncing balls and eerie-to-behold walk cycles.

- I am worried about prerequisite knowledge for this challenge. It sounds like an awful lot of fun, but are total noobs supposed/invited to take the plunge or would you say that community feedback is meant to primarily focus on optimizing existing skills as opposed to rubbing a noobs nose into the basics along the way...?

Oh, sorry I missed your question on your last post

I'd say the primary focus for this challenge is to get people to animate. It doesn't matter if you're a fresh noob or a seasoned pro. If you feel confident with your skills enough to do any of the topics then go for it! This could be a great opportunity to improve your skills or push you to new things you might not have experienced if you were on your own. If you feel like you need more time to get the basics there's always next challenge.

Don't be intimidated by the more skilled animators here. Who knows, they might even give you some advice or two on your animation. As much as we'll recognize who did this best job, this is mainly for fun!

I'm interesting about this challenge.

Just one question...Where can I get rigged character for maya to work on lip synch?

Cheers, moutmout.

If I can find a rig I like and the time to do this I'm in.

"- Use any rig and any animation software you like."

This one should work fine for you. It doesn't have the most extensive set of phonemes - just the necessary.
