Draft title of my (First?) trailer Entry is:
"Pale Red Redemption"...
... a paler kid's version of a certain game, and I bet you don't need any hints, but if you do; it's better red than dead, right?.. but I also love science fiction, fantasy & bugs bunny, so I'm bound to stray a wee bit off track...
And yes, it's a totally serious crack at animation as a Newbie. I've only been animating for a year, however it's something I've been aching
to learn for centuries
... and I can assure you that's no exaggeration at all
However, I go cross-eyed whenever I open Maya, Max or Blender, all of which I've had for several months and still haven't managed to export a single asset successfully yet... (and why the heck can't those programs talk to each other like iClone's family can...!?!... *pant, growl, hyperventilate*)
Anywayz... Who needs them for now? haha... my software suite for this project will be:
* My much loved iClone5 Pro Pipeline, which includes 3DXchange
* A 25 year old edition of Photoshop, which came free with my first PC
* and whichever old video editing suite decides not to crash on the day...
As a Junior Newbie I can't share any of the really cool tips about the fabulous new features in iClone6 yet - because I'm still trying to work them out myself - so I'll be aiming most of my blog presentation at Newbies who are even greener than me, and just having riotous good fun while playing about with all the tantilizing tips that I wish I'd known from Day 1...
... and somewhere along the way, I hope to fulfill all the requirements for each of the three categories, because:
My project(s?) will aim to demonstrate:
* At least 3 Styles of Humanoid Skeletons
* At least 3 Styles of creating unique animations
... and cram it all down the throat of one little story that - hopefully - still manages to makes sense, while doing nearly everything with iC5 and its family of friends...
So - as we say in the outback - pull up a stump, light the campfire and break out the popcorn... the adventure begins! Yay!!
Here's my first 2 main characters warming up with a friendly first bump. Probably won't make the final cut, but I had to throw them in a scene anyway to get a feel for how simple/detailed I'd like to get with this...
