Finally an official trailer for disney’s upcoming film Frozen is out.
Really liking the look of the film. It’s has the same appeal as Tangled.
I’ve been helping out as an Mentor Assistant at Animation Mentor this term and had the privilege to do a shot that is part of the sequence of shot’s the students are making for their class this term.
It’s been really fun helping out and I must say that the new AMP workflow at the school is awesome, we use something similar at work right now.
AMP is a great tool to get you accustomed to real studio workflow.
Interested in game animation or already in the business.
This podcast has a lot of great information!
This time from AnimationMentors CEO Bobby Beck.
I don’t know Bobby personally but I do know him through AnimationMentor and he is a really inspiring and awesome person.
Interesting short clip from a lecture Ted Ty held on Pixel Challenge in Quebec City earlier this year.
I been using flipbook when I do a rough planning for my animation shot’s for a long time.
I am not great at drawing but doing stick figures I can do, it’s a great program really.
A couple of weeks ago I read somewhere about BLUE PENCIL, it’s a Maya plugin done by Chris Zurbrigg.
It’s a plugin that’s let’s you draw right on the 3D viewport in Maya and the plugin is very well integrated with Mayas timeline.
I know that Maya 2014 has a similar tool now in-bedded but BLUE PENCIL is way better in my opinion.
Be sure to check it out, you will not be disappointed.
Chris is also about to release a new plugin that integrates a playblast\reference player right into Maya. The player has some cool features. One of then is that it actually will sync with your timeline.
Should be released soon and I will sure give it a try.
