Started a project to test a working process. The narrative premise is a bit corny but, it was the working process I wanted to find out about.The basic idea is that the ingredients of a cake mix, indulge in a dance off before jumping in the bowl ready for mixing. What I wanted to do was to animate and render it in AM, but then work over the top in TVpaint so it looked hand drawn, in a cg setting, so as to get a mix of visual styles in the same piece of work. I've encountered some problems along the way but will cover them later. This was the first test, hand drawn, no references. decided it changed volume too much so needed to use AM to avoid that, Line Test 001.mov This was the second test Animated in AM, then roto'd in TVP Sack Test 001.mov Different style of move using the 'Butter model' Butter A.mov That was then redone in a 'stage' setting trying to get the shadows on the work surfaces and walls, and the reflections in the mixing bowl Butter B.mov Made a bigger set, with lots of kitchen type fittings and tried to set up a simple lighting using only one light but with possible AO to be added later. Setup a series of actions to use on the background 'characters' while the other solo'd. Actions Test.mov Then animated the solo's and worked out some camera moves to get some variety. Shaded Mix 001.mov The moves were animated at 25fps and rendered out on two's for the roto work, (not even I am daft enough to try drawing it at 25fps). When it came to rendering it out properly I encountered a lot of trouble which Robert very kindly helped me with. I'll explain those more fully later. Part of it stemmed from rendering at UHD ( 3840 x 2160 ), which was chosen because I thought it would help with the drawing process post rendering, and because a lot of festivals prefer UHD with their applications. This probably won't get into a festival but hope the one its leading up to will. Still have 20 seconds of animation to go, hoping to get most of that done in the next two weeks. Any feedback greatly appreciated. simon PS the soundtrack comes from Appleloops
