Been trying out some animating...

Rate this Entry
In the past I have tried making some short animations, but my computer was SO SLOW and it would take FOREVER to render a scene. Now that i have my new rig, I dedicated a day of play time to learning how to animate again...

Here is what I've completed so far and I've learned a lot from just creating this:

I plan on making a few models that I can reuse in some minecraft short films. Right now I have a nice backdrop in the editor that I'm playing with. I am also learning how to insert blocks and create fun physics in my scenes. I hope to have a short film done today, but I doubt it will happen...

    Cool! You should come down to James' and my school, we have plenty of teachers, equipment, and whatnot for animation, I stay as far away as possible from it (I did declare a music major) but get wrapped up in it sometimes. Snaggle dabbles in it, and I have other friends who do it, but it's always nice to see someone taking an interest in the arts .......wait, what did I just say?! Darn you liberal arts school education! How dare you brainwash me!
