DmC cutscene

Hey guys

Working on a comparative piece for uni using markerless motion capture and just got this scene into UDK. It's still very wip but I would love to hear what you guys think.

Thanks in advance for any feedback/crits

The lip sync does not seem to be correctly timed
And around the 20 sec the guy lifting up the gun seems to be really floaty.
Otherwise you are doing a great job.

Hey guys

Just a quick update on the DmC scene. Textures have been added although some edits need to be made to Kats face texture. Dante/Leon has been worked on the most so far, Kat has a lot of stray looks and general floats animation which needs to be taken care of. It's getting there slowly but surely.

Any crits would be much appreciated

Sweet scene!! I dont know what DmC means, but I liked what was going on, the character choices, subtle but tense. Glad there isn't the cliche of her looking right up the barrel of the gun, but it's still tense. At 39 - 40 sec. the guy is jumpy on his weight shift, needs more smoothing. I hope you put eye light reflections so they don't look like dead anim. characters. but maybe the dude is supposed to be dead?

Hey again guys,

It may not seem like a lot has changed here but its had quite a bit of subtle work done to it. For some reason the audio appears slightly off in the video, this doesn't happen in real time.

Work done - Kat has had her bipedal animation cleaned up a bit, she isn't a jittery anymore. Dante has had the turn that he does at the end smoothed out. The thing that has been added which has really pushed this scene along is constant eye and hand/finger movements. The hands are changing position slightly every 100 frames or so, its not super obvious but it is certainly noticeable when they are absent. For instance, Dante grips the gun harder when he says "and if I pull the trigger" and the second Kat explains that she will be killed he lays off his grip slightly and re positions his body. Another small thing with Kat is after Dante again says "if i pull the trigger", Kat briefly looks at the gun and then straight back into the eyes of Dante. It shows that for a brief second she lets on that she is some what worried but then tried to hide it by looking directly back at him.

Anyways any crits would be much appreciated and thanks for looking


@Narntson - thanks for pointing this out man, hopefully its a little smoother here for you

Hey guys

Been a while since I made an update to this, I have been having to write the documentation to accompany it.

I decided to make a quick video showing all of the elements that were recorded as well as show the reference scene so any final critiques could be made easier. After making this video I can see a few myself but I am sure I have missed a lot. The camera changes are not exact but I am giving myself some lea way there, it is more the animation I am interested in.

Hope you guys enjoy!
