final Week!!! (OMG)

Hey there,

Sorry about not posting but the last couple of weeks were horrible. I barely had time to breath. Ok what am i complaining about? Even though the past week was hectic I had nice time as well. Troubleshooting my character was a headache. I still couldn't implement all the controls i wanted (damn the double transformation). Also my project is into animation (a week late).

The current status of our project is decent. We are looking to finish our project at the nick of time. Well with only 6 days left, things are running like their rear end's have been lit on fire. Our 3 of 5 scene has been animated (though we are not satisfied fully with it) the last couple is the scenes are with the character which I finished rigging this morning. Well at the time of this post my blocking pass of the final couple of scene is done.

Well will be posting the final movie in a weeks time then HELLO SPECILIZATION!

It will be a year since I came to Takshaa. It was on 5th feb 2007 I came to the hostel. I cant believe its been a year already. It seems like yesterday when I walked into the room 401 and saw my roommates. Then had the orientation on the next day.

Well enough reminisce. Lets get on to future.

Thats it for now

rig atlast

Hey there!

Ok at last onto something that i like doing, “RIGGING” our character's done and Aamar's is almost done with texturing (and seems to be enjoying what he's doing) so I am free to do rigging, well the character's a bit of a challenge. A fun challenge. This is gonna be the last time i'll get to rig anything for some time! Well i am happy and sad, happy cause i'll be onto animation in couple of weeks and sad cause that leaves me no time to practice rigging (my other love).

Well here's a smoothed screen shot of the model.

And heres a screen grab of the same model in x-ray mode with joints.

Well i am still working on skinning. After trying for about a day i think i am starting to get the hang of it. Well as the old saying goes people learn form there mistakes, i am also learning by making major mistakes.

Case in point: I must have paint weighted the whole character at least 5-6 times. Well i am not exactly complaining, but it is a bit frustrating.

A few more days of painting weights then a bit of controls and into animation stage of our project! HURRAY!!

Well thats it for now!
