Tippett releases Mad God part 1

Many talented friends and my former glorious employer and VFX artisan Phil Tippett unveil a fully stop motion film. Got to drop in and see some of the madness a year ago and everyone was certainly enjoying themselves. Have a look.

Snow kiting Turtle Lake, MN

Just got the GoPro Hero 3+ for Christmas. What a blast being out on a bluebird day. Then more fun (well not as much obviously) on the editing. GoPro Studio is not too bad either. Still needed some AE to polish it off. So much winter wonder land up here in the Midwest. http://www.ventosum.com/media/davidrbehrens_kiteTurtleLake.2014_01_04.mp4

First Unity tests

Definitely early stages, but getting procedural model and rigs generated quickly and working in real time as desired. Expect to have some animation cycles for full characters by end of year.

Generated model and rig proceduraly with module template. Animated quick and dirty. Bake scripts executed and testing FBX in Unity. WIP.

Limb modules blocked in

Got first pass of working limb modules built for propagating onto mocap rigs. Also got all the basis written for python template baking and animation bakes. Ran a test where I built a hand, animated a fist curl, and baked it and got it running in Unity in just a few minutes. Next steps are limb connections builders for spines, module interconnections, and procedural model build from mocap skeleton. Progress. Ahh.
