Computer Animation IV, Dynamic Animation, Maya 2014
The dynamic animation was the first project of the new semester and was a difficult one. This is the first project that had different poses that we haven’t seen much before.
The difficulty in this project was the fast movement, I replicated a dancer and her movements were fast and abstract. This added difficulty as I had to space things out and change them to make it look realistic in the animation. Another difficulty in this project was gimbal lock. This problem happened frequently because of the fast action that the character was moving in. Gimbal lock made it difficult to animate as body parts were moving out of control and the way to fix it would be to go through and redo the keys on that body part.
