This past week was very productive for me, except I did not get as much done as I wanted… I started reworking my the walk cycle because the current one now does not match the running since the walk was done without a treadmill and the run was done on the treadmill. I spent a good few hours on the first walk cycle but then realized that the feet movement was totally off and it was just a lot easier to go back and choose a different part of the clip instead of the one I had originally picked. Below is the first revamp that I started to work on. It is really rough because, well, I decided not to use it.
The animation below this one is the one I’m currently working on. There are still a lot of jumps but I’ll be able to get it finished.
So this has been a great week for me but there is now one downfall. I won’t be in Philadelphia for the rest of the week because tomorrow I’m leaving for San Francisco to go to GDC 2017!!!! My hotel room has a desk so I’ll still be able to get my current walk/run cycles done as well as the data that I think will be coming from a shoot this upcoming Wednesday.
Talking about GDC now… One of my goals is to meet up with a lot of game devs who love motion capture so I can try to make connections in case I ever run into problems that I can’t find the answers to. Plus it would be awesome to meet professional mocap animatiors because its just such a cool thing to do. Look for lots GDC photos in my next PPJ.
Anyway, now to my weekly RuneScape progress. I got 99 thieving!
- I’m going to GDC this week!
- Finally found a walk cycle I can work with
- I’m going to GDC this week 😦 I don’t know much work I’ll be able to get done
- I didn’t get to finish the walk cycles before I left for GDC because I ran into a lot of problems with the data and mobu.
