Apparently I'm not the only one dabbling in 3D with regards to the Star Fleet stuff. Great! Well, I was wondering what the others thought about doing some character animation in 3D. Well? Has anyone else put much thought into this?I don't have Poser, but I understand it's great for just this type of idea. I have just recently started trying to make "people" in 3D and am finding it to be a massively complex task! Here are a couple of examples of what I can do:Purple HeadI made this in about a day and a half. It's my first real attempt at making a *realistic* human. So far, I've only finished the head and neck, but I plan on making a body too. Oh, I suppose you can't see the ears in that image so try this one too.Valentine's Day Movie (need QuickTime to view it)I made this in about two days. It's also my very first attempt at facial animation (note the lip-syncing). While the model isn't very complex, I believe it's fairly simple to apply the animating techniques to more complex models.I've thought about making some Star Fleet characters once I've learned these techniques a bit better. Hercules' head looks like it'd be fun to shape... :biggrin:Completely off-topic: I'm ready for that BW game later, Andy... are you?
