Hey all,

You can use it in your demo reel etc, along with credits given to me and i will do the same

I'd love to animate that character. looks like fun. unfortunately, i don't know how to rig, but if someone else rigs it up, i'd be more than happy to take a crack at it!

I'd love to try, if it's a maya file. I'm still new to rigging and animation but I can give it a shot, it'll be good practice.

Hey Kravit,

I've done this arrangement in the past with others.
It seems to work out well.
I'd love to have a crack at your model.

As an example, check this out:

I'd love to animate it if someone can rig it in 3dsMax. Unless you are willing to transfer your model to Maya then I can skin and animate it. Looks good !

Great character there, my friend! I'd love to rigg and animate the biotch but I'm a 100% Maya dude. Plus, I think I need a new PC as mine would probably have a nervous breakdown after I get done skinning her. Animating will be quite hard without some MoCap data to edit seeing that the character is very realistic and hand keying natural movements is very hard!

Check out some of my chick animations/rigg(modeled this too) for reference here:

Really nice character Kravit...she might be the girl friend of Splinter cell or Solid Snake !

If it was easy everybody will do it

For sure Mocap is MUCH MUCH much much.... faster, but it give an animation "tasteless", linear, whithout strong poses. Well, that's my personnal point of view.
If you have the opportunity to animate the character on your own, will'nt be more interesting to "do" the animation, even if it's more time consuming and harder? Using a camrecorder to study the movement, choosing the interesting motion...removing useless motion...accentuate "interesting//usefull" motion...is a good way.
BTW, your "knight girl" is really looking nice (model...texture...)!!
You and I are underdosed and we're ready to fall...

I certainly agree with you 100%, phenobarbidoll. I was just thinking of the easiest and quickest way to get her up and running. Motion "referencing" ala camcorder and video footage is much better(I reference motion all the time). You can still use MoCap as a "base animation", then animate on top of it, but it requires cleaning up MoCap keys(usually keys on every frame on every joint! Yikes!) with takes forever. Thanks for compliments, too.

I can put a 3DS Max (7) Biped with Physique on it if is not too dense. But I only have today off so act fast.
