Hey Renato, how things going?

I've seen this TV spots quite a few times already and it's great! The message is clear - what seems innocent and funny at first sight may turn up into something not so nice.

I've also seen a second spot showing a guy speeding and then crashing/burning his car - you rigged that too?

Didn't see the rigging work yet, but was it done entirely in 3dsMax? Great job from you guys at Beeld, as always!

Cheers!

Hey David, I really appreciate your comment

I´ve done only the first one, Beeld is 100% 3dsmax–based company.

The rig looks fantastic and appears to work very well.

The demo is way to slow how ever and needs something to make it stand out. Showing work like this is a real pain, you don't want to miss anything but really no one wants to sit through it all either. I didn't get all the way through it an just jumped ahead constantly to see what was coming next. People that you really are interested in showing this to usually know what it is they are looking at and don't need to see it in real time and every little bit of it. Speed it up two to three times, cut more then 50% of it out and add on screen tags and information that tell me some high lights.

Creating interesting rigging reels can be a real pain, I have been lucky and I have never had to do it.

Here are some clips of what I was putting together and just never got around to completing.

Not that what I have is what you want or not that it is fantastic, but it gets the point across and doesn't make you want to fast forward it.

Great work, excellent rig!

Just saw the rig. Great stuff! That's soooo a punch in the face of people who says Max isn't suited for animations anymore. Sure we could use some upgrading of its tools, but nice to see such things flourishing within Max system.

Your rigging reminds me of Alan Camilo stuff. He's also a great Max rigger!

Really great cartoony rig!! I personally like your reel. I don't think it's too long or boring. Most stuff you are showing is interesting and shows the power of the rig.

@Paul
I spent around 05 painfull days on it and I must confess it was really time consuming to get this video "done".. Unfortunately I´m not an expert on creating exciting tech demos and I am still struggling to come up with something good everytime I want to show people my skills.. Next time I´ll try to build a better peace for my finished autoRig used on that work.

PS
It is really good to receive feedback like yours, thank you very very much for that!!

@Young
Thanks! It took me around 04 days initialy, then +02 including tweaks animators needed.
I´ve been developing an automation script and I hope to release it soon

This rig was developed for "Cellphone and Drive" animated campaign which warns us about using a cell phone while driving:


by Beeld Studio

A few pics:









Cheers!

Love it!
The way you rigged the hands in particular, but also the great detail overall.
Must have been a pleasure animating with it!

So, the rig is really cool. But you knew that. I'm just wondering what kinda shaders or rendering engines were used in that final piece. It's great looking!
