Arrow 8_bosses_WIP

Hi!
Just started with this acting scene blocking stage no breakdowns yet.. few poses done. Check out!!

Blocking

The dialogue ends with "...tell me about this! " not rendered here in this preview. Will start to pose the breakdowns and lip sync now. So please give me your critiques!

Hi!!
Finally I am quite happy with this animation!! Please give your critique!

8_Bosses_1.mov

Now I am having some problem while rendering..The head is not rendering !?!..I know that really looks funny.

I used Norman Rig in Maya2008. Rendered in mental ray using GI and FG.. I would greatly appreciate, if anyone can help me out with this..Thanks!

Great use of moving holds ari! The only part which looked a bit strange to me was the very beginning frames 1-13. The angle on his mouth and the way it's opening/closing so fast has a very odd effect. Tilting his head slightly up, or pulling the camera angle slightly down would probably remedy this methinks.

For the render, check the attributes on the head geometry (cntrl+a) I would look over the render stats/mental ray and object display tabs and see if you checked or unchecked something to offset this. Can't tell ya specifically, but it's a starting place at least ;P

In any case, great piece and well done over all.

I know it seems obvious, but have you checked that Primary Visibility is switched on for the head object in the render stats? It might have got switched off if the head has been used as a wrap deformer for some other geometry (its caught me out a couple of times).

Does it render if you assign a simple surface shader? Does it render if you use Maya software renderer?

Great piece of character acting by the way

Pete.

Thanks Pete!!Yes! I have used warp deformer for his eyebrows! and parented the hairs with the head controller. Since then I was facing this issue...It was not getting rendered in any surface shader! Glad you like the animation!Anyways, soon I will render the whole clip and upload again right here! Thanks again Pete!
