"Animation Excercise: Take 18" is a take-off about one of those "must do" animation tests every animator goes through : A character lifting a heavy object..

Thanks alot Sinemy!

Caleb, what "off-the shlef" means in these
Software group, is not realy off the local
computer store shelf, but commercialy
sold software, and not in-house developed

Lightwave and 3D studio Max are between 1500 to
3500 U.S$, Softimage and Maya are from 7000 to
20,000 U.S$ (Don't quote me on this price list:)
Usualy there are local Dealers of these 3D Softwares, in Major cities.. and most of the
clients are Studios and Educational institutes..

there is a great 3D program, that costs around
200$ (more or less) it's called
Hash Animation Master.. and it got almost
everything the big guys got.. check it out!

Excellent Excellent Excellent!

Animation is so convincng you'd almost swear its mo-cap. Very funny too. Certainly an inspiration to animation students.

Keep up the good work!

This might sound like a silly question to you, but I've never seen any of these programs you guys talk about (Maya, Lightwave, 3d studio max) in stores. But, in the case of the 405 people, they clearly say "off-the-shelf" products. What's the deal? Is there a special store for such items?

Thanks (!!) CoTNT,

Thanks for your compliments :)
I did this animation long time ago,
and today when I look at it, I think it's even
too smooth.. or in other words too floaty, in certain parts.

Thats the look I was after at that time,
but if I would have to animate this short again today,
I would probably do it much more snappy...

thanks again:)

I am very impressed with the animation. I am stunned to tell you the truth.
I myself am a student of 3d modelling, and I work in Maya. But I have never ever seen an animation run so smooth.
Excellent work!
