The reactor bowling thing

•November 27, 2010 • Leave a Comment

This is the bowling piece, this was easier to get working as its just using rigid bodies and i dont have to use the character to touch the pins.

Again, ignore the animation for now as its just to get the feel of things and to make the reactor objects work.

I will be looking into using shadows sometime, but thats the last thing to worry about on this piece.


Animation/ Reactor test

Been playing around with reactor while thinking of more animations for me to try.
currently got a bowling idea, dancing to an mp3 layer and using a yoyo.

Got to the stage where im happy with the cable, but i cant seem to make the body of the dee rig a rigid body. any ideas how to do this to make the cable collide with the body rather than passing through it?

Ignore the animation for now, thats just to get some basic movement for the cable to move.

Still need more of a polish. I have cut the length down so it could be put in a showreel easily.

Timied out a bit better, also trying out lighting. Still need to do a couple more passes to add inbetweens and to add overlap on certain parts such as the walk which is a bit dull atm.

Lots of activity today

Seen this guy and instantly thought of him climbing into a chair. So I have set my self the project to animate it. got the initial poses worked out, into very rough timing just to give an idea on whats going on.

Next I will work on silhouettes and inbetween, then timing. Then after that I will polish it up.

Using a free rig from creative crash, I created this vanilla walk cycle in about 15 mins.
