The Heavy Push

Recommended Posts

It's a classic, the heavy push... I don't think they let you get an animator's license without one.

Edit: The above file is in H.264

 

here's a smaller version in Sorenson3

Loved it. :lol: Especially the end where he rolls with it and the weight rolls over him. Are you doing the Animation Mentor program, because I get the impression cause the character looks like one they use. I myself am getting ready to apply for the summer term of this year. I really want to hone my character animation skills.

 

Once again great job

 

You nailed that one.

Excellent. Love the tremble at the end too. Say hello to Victor when you see him.

Thanks, guys!

Yes, that's "Stewie", remade in Animation:Master. "Push a heavy object up an incline" was a 2nd quarter assignment. They've changed the curriculum since then, it may be no more.

Brush up on your drawing skills between now and then. That's one thing they don't warn you about... you will be expected to make quite a few drawings as part of your assignments.

I haven't had him for a mentor so I haven't run into him yet. But I hear he has a reputation as an extrememly tough grader.

That's wonderful robcat! I really like that last elbow shaking effort to get that cylinder over the edge of the ramp!

 

Gotta be careful how hard you push... you might go over... :o ... Too late!

 

:D

Outstanding work. The back arch reversals play really well. Thanks for posting Robcat.

 

I know it's not relevant what rig was used, but I'm just curious if you used the Squetch rig for this model? Any chance you'd post the model for general use (if not, that's fine)? I just like his look.

I was thinking more of when you join Pixar.

Is there a special codec for this file ?

GA, JR...

 

I get it But I uploaded the latest QT...WITHOUT iTunes... maybe that'll help.. at one point with both, I had to clear the cache every time to view a new mov.

 

Robcat, that was very nice... very good!

Well, that's what I get for trying to be modern. H.264 is supposed to be a standard QT codec now but I guess they don't have that all worked out yet.

 

I've put a Sorenson3 version up at the top. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It uses the H.264 codec, which comes with QT7 (at least, it does on the Mac) - which version of QT are you using?

 

H.264 provides astonishing compression but you need a fair bit of processor power to play it. My 600MHz iBook plays about one frame in 100 for H.264 movies. My solution to this: I simply exported it using the Sorensen 3 codec, and that plays fine for me.

 

I do like this animation - I shall file it away for future reference!

I rigged it with TSM2, which has some squetchy features but I didn't use them this time out.

No, I can't. I already created "a situation" at the AnimationMentor office last week when i merely revealed i had included one of my models in a bug report to Hash.

Strange....considering you made him in AM and anyone else could do the same.

If I had ten percent of your character animation skill, I would be a happy guy...

That's what I did too. I wish there were some examples like that in bootcamp.

Very nice work indeed. I really like how you used the eyes to add to the effect that he's straining. Really nice look to it, I'd say perfect job! Congrats!

The only crit viewing it frame by frame is his knee goes through the ground on frame 160.

You mean you have to have a license to animate? Oh no! I've been AWOL! (animating without a license)

 

Looks really great!

I can't because, even though i made my own, the school only wants AnimationMentor students to use their characters.

 

It was an extremely basic character and really just a stick figure, however. You can make one better in A:M!

There is a Robby Model rigged with the 2008 rig in the Example_Models.zip located in this post

 

Robby could be Stewie's twin.
