Fs wip sh1

Fs wip sh1 from Dmca on Vimeo.
Here is an updated, I'm still working I just added all the positions for this shot. same changes in timing and still missing something at the end of the last jump to connect with the cycle, I've toned down the arms swing there and changed its directions till next pose, but still looks weird,maybe the bounce should be bigger or ....
I used the trax only to store the clips and update modifications on the soldiers clips.
Once the main FS was baked I had to clean up the keys, very alike working with mocap, and then add new poses. The funny was that the walk is there already, all the times and movs as well, for good or bady, but it's kind of cool because you have less possibilities and more precision on the characters actions.So it directs your alterations. anyway, I don't want to talk girerish again...hihhi

Little jump off walk

Jump Off Cycle FS wip from Dmca on, trax haaaaa,
I couldn't squeeze nothing there, when i started adding keys on top off walk, it was getting too nasty, difficult to control. So I went to the bake way. Having all the keys there is painstakly to modify but it does.It gets in a point where you are animating straight ahead on top off the walk, quite cool.
I did a little jump to test and I gonna do same more, Iooking around and ....

Camera travel test going to a closer shot.

Fs Cam Travel wip from Dmca on Vimeo.

Fs Close wip from Dmca on Vimeo.

LayerAnim Test from Dmca on Vimeo.this is just a test using trax, a cycle as a clip, I added same poses, made another clip and layered the upper body from the cycle, the trick was to make Sub Character Set, upper body and lower.It's very rough, hope now squeeze something cool out this tool.

Plant feet

3 differents offsets FS wip from Dmca on Vimeo.
Just been fight against the maya trax,..haaaa. I still haven't found my way over there.
I've baked a locator to check the feet looked, adjusting the motion path curve until i had an almost flat cv(+-2un) on the feet contact.
Now I'm just having fun with the offset, when is one fr delayed each, 6 total, looks pleasant to my eyes but also kind of dancing. The same fr looks to computer, but the mix with one fr delay maximun spreading randonly is cool.
I've tried same deformers to make same strides differen, maybe will works.
