Lol, hi all, btw my name's Dave, well actually Davy Van Verdegem, but I'd rather be called Dave.
And I'm using Max 7.

Of course you are benman, that's what I said - after the fact. Sorry about that

Good call on the software mentioning, though luckily most of the modern software is fairly interchangable we'll have to settle up on something for the final renderings and animation.

Dave it is!

The_Observer, does this mean I don't need to worry about any concepts for the enviroment? Just strictly stay with characters, vehicles and weapons?

  11 November 2004
Well, that's up to you Tom, I can draw, but not that well, so I'd be easier if I'd have some good concepts. But I think you have already enough work with the other stuff, so if that's the case, I can make it on my own too.

Is there a small/simple object you need modeled? Possibly textured too. I just bought XSI Foundation and need something to practice on. I just want a little assignment to prove myself. If I can't do it, I'll step down and leave this to the talented people

Thumbs up Simple Object

Hey Vertizor, thanks for the interest.
When it comes to modeling, there's no such thing as simple in my book, but here's something that might fit into your request.
There's a need for a type of ripcord device that gets harnessed to a suit. It'll be close to a "J" hook with a clasp on it to loop around a connector.
Metal, attached to a metal cable, and with a locking mechanism.
Think that'll work? If so, let me know and I'll point you in the right direction for the script and more information.

Forum Board

Just to give an update (due to my hyperactivity regarding this project), I thought I'd post the forum board for people who might be interested in following the progress or adding their own thoughts.

The forum is coming along nicely. I should have the outer body armor done this weekend.

I do have a question on that. When I sent the turnarounds of the head and torso, they were pretty large as requested by the mod/animator. Will I need to make the body armor/helmet the same size or can I make a smaller version and have the mod/animator make the adjustment? If I can make it smaller, I won't have to scan it in "parts" and I'll be more accurate with the turnarounds.

Tom, I feel you should send the lower res in full to the modelers/animators and if/when we need the more detailed stuff they can get it later.
I'm not a modeler by trait, but when I do model I need the general, not the detailed.
Go with the small Tom,

yeh i agree with dragon small should be fine.

Hey guys,

I'm interested in helping you out on your project. I'm a senior animator with plenty of production experience. Could you use another animator? Let me know.
